Nubia Z11 miniS – Travel Story

A snappy new smartphone – The Nubia Z11 miniS has launched in India today and I can finally share my experience with the device – I had carried it with me to my recent road-trip in Rajasthan, discovering Jaisalmer & Bikaner and have only been able to share sneak peeks until now! Today I can show you all the amazing photographs I took using this feature-packed smartphone while I used it as a replacement for my usual DLSR – heck I even did a quick outfit shoot with the device and it came out great! Great enough to share right here on the blog!

You can purchase the phone exclusively on Amazon India (in stock on March 23rd but can be ordered now!). Click here to go to the shoppable link.

A quick introduction to the Nubia Z11 miniS and my favorite features of the smartphone:
The body is 158 gms and comes in two colors – khaki grey & moon gold. I went for the khaki grey and it compliments any outfit.

It clicks beautiful selfies with an impressive depth of field so your face doesn’t end up looking like a pasty flat surface. Does rather well in low light as well. The best selfies are, in my opinion, clicked in direct sunlight. But this one was clicked in the shade and looks smashing. The selfie camera is an impressive 13-megapixel one, built with the SONY IMX258 Exmor RS sensor.

This selfie has been clicked in direct sunlight with no makeup on so the camera does a good job of smoothing the skin out smartly.

Takes clear photographs with really clear details. That is because of the 23MP rear camera with 6P Sapphire lens and F2.0 aperture which helps capture sharper details even in low light. It also has a rapid focus of 0.1 seconds! During lunch at Suryagarh, I took this photograph of my glass of beer. The focus is on the glass which is why the background appears a bit blurred. The 2nd photograph is merely a zoom in of the same photograph showing you exactly how impressive the details come out. You can even spot the tiny bubbles clearly.

Beauty Camera that allows you to play with your photographs and editing which is perfect if you’re a blogger like me and need your content to be just perfect. A lot of fun things to play around with like multiple exposure, slow shutter, star trail, trajectory, clone, a macro camera, panorama and lots more. Here are some pics I got clicked of my outfit at Narendra Bhawan using the device.

A sleek metal unibody that makes the Nubia Z11 miniS a good-looking and stylish phone, perfect for someone who loves her outfits and likes to accessorize! The metal frame is made of 6000 series Aluminum Alloy with matte and frosting surfaces. Love how the device is not too small or too big but a perfect fit in my hand. The screen is a 5.2″ full-HD screen that has a vibrant display and makes all photos pop!

I like how it performs in settings of high-contrast as well. It has captured the bright outdoors as well as it has captured places under the shade.

An impressive battery life and a multi-functional fingerprint recognition which makes me feel super high-tech. I mostly took a lot of photographs and a few videos using the device and I needed to charge it only once during my 8 day road-trip. Granted I did not use it for surfing the web or doing heavy stuff like watching youtube videos, the battery performed really well.
