Cnet

Solid unlocked value, but lacks LTE

from Cnet

With its small amount of internal storage, lack of LTE, and inconsistent video-recording performance, the Nubia 5 isn't perfect. If you can wait, it's probably smarter to see what the unlocked Nexus 5 has in store since it's expected to be a global-ready and reasonably priced phone as well.

Performs well, looks good and comfortable in both a hand and pocket

from Android Community

Bottom line here, the ZTE nubia 5 was a fun handset to play with. And as we mentioned earlier, we are not quite ready to put it down just yet. Needless to say, while the overall experience was great, there are some concerns and potential issues.
