For all of you who think Chinese companies can only make low to mid range phones.

It's not the specs that put me off, it's the design. I'm willing to put some extra grams in my hand to have a metal back (or at least frame) because I don't want to have an ugly case on it just to protect the plastic from scratches.

How's battery life? It's my only concern with this phone, as 2300 mAh simply sounds underwhelming. :-/

At first, that was my only concern as well, but I still decided to buy it because its price was attractive. In general I'm happy about battery life, because at the end of the day it mostly has 20-30% battery life left (and I use my phone all day long for everything). Maybe this is because of the 'Powersaver' app Nubia installed on this phone which optimizes the battery use.
