ZTE's high-end Nubia 5
It's Lynn La, from CNET.
And today, we're gonna check out the unlocked Nubia 5 from ZTE.
As one of ZTE's top-tier handsets, the Nubia 5 has a solid, higher-end build quality.
And it has a nice faux-metallic trim along its edges, here.
The phone has a crisp and responsive 5-inch, 1080p full HD display with 443ppi.
It is HPA quest-enabled, runs on Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean,
and features ZTE's my favorite user, Interface.
Interestingly enough, for this phone, the UI doesn't include an app drawer.
Instead, you'll find all your app stored either on the homepages, or individual folders.
Powering the device is a quad-core 1.5-gigahertz Snapdragon S4 processor, and the non-removable 2.3 ampere hour battery.
Users will also get 16-gigs of ROM, and 2-gigs of RAM.
In addition to the front-facing 2-megapixel camera, there's also a 13-megapixel camera
on the back, that can shoot 1080p video.
The camera has 3 major shooting modes, the Auto, a more advanced Pro mode, and a Sun mode that has these Instagram micro-filters.
You can purchase the device, unsubsidized, through ZTE's website for about $450.
Again, I'm Lynn.
And you've been checking at ZTE's Nubia 5.
