ZTE finally releases its affordable mid-ranger – the Nubia 5S mini – in the States
Being a "mini" version of ZTE's flagship, it comes with toned down specs. Its SoC is a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400, clocked at 1.7 GHz; RAM is pinned at the pretty adequate 2 GB, and internal storage is at 16 GB. The phone lacks a microSD slot to expand said storage, so that's a drag. The screen has a 720 x 1280 resolution that spreads across 4.7 inches. The main snapper has 13 megapixels and lacks optical image stabilization – something that the bigger Nubia Z5 does have. Still, selfie-lovers needn't worry, as the front camera has 5 megapixels to capture duckfaces in all their glory. Meanwhile, battery has a decent capacity of 2,000 mAh.
All in all, the ZTE Nubia Z5S mini seems like a decent mid-ranger, and at the price of $280 off-contract, it's worth a look. Still, the Moto G and its $180 price-tag may yet be a better deal.
