As a digital content creator, I need to be connected 24/7. I also need tech that both looks good & functions well. I recently had the chance to play with the new Nubia Z11 miniS so I decided to spend the day playing the tourist in my own city & testing the new phone, of course.
Let’s talk about the phone: The Nubia Z11 miniS is a new premium smartphone with a focus on photography. It has a 23 MP fast focus rear camera + 13 MP front camera with Selfie Fill Light. Under the hood, the Nubia Z11 Mini S comes with a Qualcomm® Snapdragon 625™, 4GB RAM + 64GB ROM.
It has a 98% metal unibody, and screen size 5.2 inch full hd with 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass and comes in two metallic colours – khaki grey & moon gold.I have the moon gold & I love the classy combination of muted gold + white with little red accents on the main buttons.
The camera is fast & comes with multiple options like HDR, Pretty, Pro (where you get to choose a lot of settings), Panorama & more. The camera focuses with excellent accuracy in just 0.1 seconds which means you can immediately snap without any lag.
Of course I had to click this click #OOTD by an old building in South Bombay. I love how crisp & clear the colours are.
Next I decided to finally tick off a bucket list item & visit the famous Britannia & Co restaurant in Ballard Estate. I snapped this picture from their top deck / balcony. It was dimly lit inside the restaurant & sunny outside, but the HDR feature captured a lot of detail even in high contrast conditions.
Just before we dug into their famous Berry Pulao. Again this was very dimly lit with unflattering artificial light & I think the colours still are very crisp & there’s a lot of detail.
On the way home, testing the selfie camera.
We were tired & sweaty, but the Beauty feature did a good job of making us looking presentable. It smooths out skin, enhances the eyes without distorting any features.
The battery life is impressive as well & even after a full day of snapping I had over 30% battery remaining. I found the camera really impressive & it was great to be able to capture such great images on my phone & not having to pull out my bulkier pro camera. Whether day to day snaps or travels, I think this is the perfect smartphone that multi tasks.
Of course this does everything you can expect out of a good smartphone as well (I love me some phone gaming when I’m stuck in traffic) but for this post I focussed most of my attention on the camera.
The Nubia Z11 miniS is available online exclusively on Amazon.In
