Though it may never enjoy the same brand cachet as Samsung or Apple, ZTE has a winner on its hands with the Nubia 5s mini. It's a classy device that rivals phones from more established players in terms of quality and attention to detail. And aside from Motorola, most of those companies aren't interested in playing in this price class. If you're more of a Wi-Fi type, the Motorola Moto G offers a bigger display and better Android experience for only $179, but it lacks 4G LTE. Big-screen fanatics would do well to check out the Huawei Ascend Mate2 4G, which is only slightly more expensive at $299, but comes equipped with a massive 6.1-inch display and outrageously long battery life. We still love the OnePlus One's unbeatable price and feature list, but it's becoming increasingly clear that the company has no intention of selling the phone to mainstream customers. And if you can stretch your budget to $350, the Nexus 5 is still one of the most impressive unlocked devices around.

An affordable, neatly-built handset

from Android Authority

It’s a great phone in a market with great competition. I can say the build quality, design and camera would make me choose it over the Moto G if I could afford it. Then again, if I had the extra cash I would also choose a OnePlus One or a Nexus 5 over the Nubia 5S Mini.
