ZTE Nubia Z5S Mini hands-on (Video)

Technically speaking, the ZTE Nubia Z5S Mini is already getting a little old, having first gone official all the way back in November. Just because it was available in China, though, didn’t mean that we had enjoyed the opportunity to get familiar with it yet, so at the MWC this week we tracked down one of the handsets, looking to finally get some first-hand experiences with the mid-range Android.

Sure, mid-range can mean a lot of different things to a lot of different people, but the Z5S Mini is thankfully towards the top of that class, with specs like a 4.7-inch 720p display and 2GB of RAM – really, it has us thinking a lot about the Moto X. The thing is, the Moto X, as a smartphone, is much more than just the some of its hardware components – will ZTE be able to find that same je ne sais quoi?

Well, it’s going to be a tall order, but the company certainly has its sights set on expanding into new markets in the West, but if it can deliver the the Z5S Mini with a very competitive price, it might be off to a good start. Watch on to check out the phone in action.
