The ZTE Nubia Flip has enough merits to stand on its own. It is a well-designed phone with all the right specifications in the right places to make the user experience quite good. There are quality components in every area of ​​the smartphone, be it the design, display, performance, 5G camera or even the battery.

In fact, there are foldable smartphones with much better specs than this one, but they also cost much more. They were released at prices that are simply out of reach for mainstream users. That’s exactly what ZTE plans to change with this smartphone. Therefore, they price the smartphone below $500, making it affordable for most people.

Given all the specifications and features this smartphone offers, its price is justified. This level of price-performance ratio is a rarity in the foldable phone segment, making it a unique phone. However, there are compromises when the price is so low. This includes the lack of IP rating, screen protection, alternative camera lenses, and wireless charging.

A possible alternative to this smartphone would be none other than the Tecno Phantom V Flip, its maximum rival. It offers slightly better specs, cameras, and lighter weight, but is available at a high price. However, the final decision is up to you, so it is better to choose a smartphone based on your requirements and needs.
