ZTE finally releases its affordable mid-ranger – the Nubia 5S mini – in the States
ZTE came about to release its Nubia 5S mini to the US markets in a very sneaky fashion. The phone was initially released in China at the end of last year. There hasn't been much information about it since, or whether it will be available to western markets, but it's here now and can be bought for $280 off-contract.

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.
