ZTE nubia Z7 hands-on and first impressions
The nubia Z7 is a 5.5 inch device with Quad HD resolution. The design is fairly standard however it does have some nice touches like the rounded corners and the soft-touch matte finish. Both of which make the phone comfortable in the hand. One unique aspect is the bright red home buttom, which is also complimented by other dashes of red through-out the design.
As for innards, the nubia Z7 is powered by a Snapdragon 801 with 3GB of RAM. For your storage needs there is 32GB of flash. In terms of optics, the Z7 comes with a 13MP camera with built-in optical image stabilization (OIS). The nubia Z7 can also record video at 4K. The included camera app has a mode for more advanced users, as well as an auto mode for those that just want to point and shoot.
The device comes with a 3000mAh battery, so battery life shouldn’t be an issue even with that Quad HD display. The nubia Z7 runs Android 4.4 KitKat but comes with ZTE’s own custom skin, which while colorful and bright, does lack the standard app draw. However, overall the UI experience is good.
The ZTE nubia Z7 will be available initially in China and there isn’t yet any word of availability outside of Asia. If the device does become available world wide, you can be sure that we will let you know.
