  • Avoid this model if you intend to use outside China

    The development team of this company currently does not have any plan for Global ROM. To make it productive outside China, you will have to unlock the bootloader (not as difficult as Huawei devices) and flash TWRP and then root it.
    Use ADB tools to remove official apps for better power consumption. In addition, nubia is notorious for installing Google frameworks. Usual method (Google service installer etc) without root doesn't at all. TWRP + GApps is a must.
    The screen display has a very very cold temperature tuning. I personally had to use CF.lumen to force a warmer temperature for the sake of eye protection.

    Positives
    • Dual-display design
    • Good battery life
    • Impressive shockproof
    • Decent build quality
    Negatives
    • No Global ROM (missing Play Store)
    • Developer-unfriendly
    • Poor technical support
    • Firmware JOS 3.05 (as of Aug 2019) still buggy
    • Not too many options for protective case

    Powerful hardware and cylindrical design

    The phone is a unique design myth for those who dislike the notch. The competitor of the inventor of the screens, such as vivo and even the hardware, as a Ram processor, remembers everything that looks complete, elegant and unique, but according to critics, there is a problem with the softwire and support of languages and system errors. I wish the company a model to check it with every merit in my channel. I note that I am from the Middle East and this is what Nubia lacks in its entry into the Gulf markets and this is sought by aspiring companies

    Dampish

    ZTE Nubia x is a damp machine. There are a lot of glitches, in the first place there is no firmware update, in the second, the touch button (back) itself turns on several times in a row, discarding everything, in the third it translated into Russian, but the menu and the rest half in Russian is half in English, in the fourth some icons of the main menu do not work at all or reset immediately after clicking, in the fifth the mobile Internet does not work on some applications (for example: Yandex taxi or Yandex transport), in the sixth the volume buttons on the left are inconveniently located, for a cover of books

What is a Ki score?
Ki is an automatic score based on the specifications and prices of devices. It is calculated using over 200 variables to rank smartphones, tablets and other devices from best to worst.
How do we calculate the Ki?

In this case, to determine the score we evaluate 5 general aspects:

  • Design and screen
  • Hardware and performance
  • Camera
  • Connectivity
  • Battery

Once these 5 factors have been rated, we introduce the price variable. This means that any two devices with the same ratings get a different Ki score for quality vs price.

Even a device objectively worse than another may have a higher Ki score if it has a better price.

Does the Ki score change?

The Ki varies as time goes by. As new devices with better specifications enter the market the Ki score of older devices will go down, always being compensated of their decrease in price.
