The Nubia Z20 Review-We present to you in this article a quick review of the leading NUBIA X phone from the leading company ZTE,
The thing that distinguishes this beautiful device is the presence of two screens, the main screen size of 6.26 inches
and another screen in the back size of 5.1 inches, and the ZTE phone is also distinguish by its distinctive design.
The Nubia Z20 Review
It is 154.1 mm long and 73.3 mm wide, 8.4 mm thick and weigh: 281 g.
The main screen comes in 6.26 inch LCD type with a resolution of 2280 x 1080 pixels, supporting a 19: 9 aspect ratio,
which in turn achieves 93.6 percent of the front end of the device,
where the front camera “My predecessor” is only hidden from use when shown.
The screen is covered with a scratch-resistant Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection layer
In addition to the main screen,
The phone in the back has a secondary OLED screen with a size of 5.1 inches, at a resolution of 1520 x 720,
Supporting pixels for the 19: 9 aspect ratio.
One company, Nubia, seems to live and breathe slightly wacky ideas.
It also launched the Z20: a smartphone with two displays and no front-facing camera.
It’s packed with great specs and is actually available for a reasonable price.
But does the two-screen experience bring any real additional benefit?
- Dimensions: 158.6 x 75.3 x 9mm / Weight: 186g
- Diamond Black or Twilight Blue colours
- Glass and metal design
Look at the Z20 from the front and you probably won’t notice anything all that remarkable.
It looks like a smartphone; the usual combination of glass and metal,
Where the front glass is curved at the edges.POCKET-LINT
Power up the display, however, and you’ll see that there’s no notch and no hole-punch cutout for a selfie camera.
That is, of course, because there’s a second screen on the back,
Which can be used with the rear camera to act as a selfie system.
That means this phone has slim bezels all the way around, with nothing creeping into the screen’s space.
We like that a lot. As seems to still be the case for most Android phone makers,
The bottom edge is still chunkier than the others. This still seems to be an area that’s proving difficult to shrink.
Nubia’s approach is vastly different to both, more akin to the Vivo Dual Display that launched in China in 2019.
Both handsets offer a full colour, high refresh-rate, proper screen on their rears.
For the Nubia it’s not as big as the main display, but it’s not tiny by any means, filling a good proportion of available space.
Is the secondary screen actually useful ?
- 5.1-inch rear curved AMOLED screen
- 19:9 aspect ratio, 720 x 1520 resolution
Now we don’t mind companies thinking outside the box.
In fact, as tech fans that like to get excited by new things, we encourage it.
After all, the last thing we want is for everything to be exactly the same.
After more than a decade of primarily using smartphones with one main screen,
There’s definitely a bit of a learning curve trying to remember that there’s a second screen on the back.
It’s not instinctive to flip a phone over and use the secondary screen.
The only time it feels natural is when taking selfies.
The Nubia Z20 Review
Because there’s no dedicated front-facing camera, the rear screen becomes your selfie screen when taking photos of yourself.
That does mean you don’t have to use a much poorer camera to take selfies
Which is normally the case – so that’s one positive to come from this somewhat bizarre phone.
Media consumption is hit and miss
- Main screen: 6.42-inch AMOLED display
- 1080 x 2340 resolution
- Corning Gorilla Glass 5
- Single loudspeaker
As for the primary screen on the front, that’s actually a decent panel.
It’s big, colorful, sharp and plenty bright enough. Use it to display the right content and it looks quite stunning at times.
Launch a game like Alto’s Odyssey and the colors and detail just pops on the screen to give you a fantastic visual treat.

Snapdragon 855+ processor, 8GB RAM
For the most part, the Z20 acts like the flagship it is, thanks to being powered by one of Qualcomm’s most powerful processors.
It’s the Snapdragon 855, the same you’d find in pretty much every high-end Android phone from 2019.
- Triple camera system
- 48MP primary sensor, optical image stabilisation (OIS)
- 16MP ultra-wide
- 8MP telephoto
It almost seems commonplace now to see this triple camera system on the back of a Chinese Android phone,
So it’s no surprise to see a 48-megapixel primary sensor joined by both an ultra-wide camera and a telephoto/zoom camera. 1/15POCKET-LINT
What this enables is a camera that has the versatility you’d expect to find on a premium smartphone,
Giving you three distinct focal lengths in one product, with no bulky additional lenses.
In the camera interface, you can quickly switch between the ultra-wide 0.6x, 1x and 3x modes, without losing any detail.
There’s also the option of a 5x zoom and 10x zoom, but you’ll notice the picture starts to get quite ‘splodgy’ if you decide to take it that far.
Overall, the results are fine. Sure, they might not blow you away with their dynamic range,
or the way harsh brightness is balanced out with dark shadows,
but for the everyday shot, in decent light, you’ll get more than passable results.
The Nubia Z20 is a perfectly good phone, especially at its price point.
It performs well, looks good, has a great (main) screen,
and a version of Android that isn’t overloaded with lots of extra bloat or a heavy custom skin.
Its biggest issue, really, is that we’ve not even mentioned the second screen
because it feels somewhat alien to get a great deal of use out of it. As that’s the main selling point here, we struggle to be allured.
Plus, there’s strong competition out there.
At a similar price you can pick up something from OnePlus and get a smoother, faster phone with a screen
and just the one! – that’s undoubtedly one of the best displays on the market.
Nubia might have two screens, but that doesn’t really make it better than one.
