More importantly, Super AMOLED screen is illuminated which can delay the battery life. It’s most proper to use this kind of screen. Meanwhile, it also uses 2.5D curved screen to improve its level and touch feeling. The back also has sleek curve design to hold better and more comfortably.

Nubia Z11 MAX is also attractive for its powerful battery. It adopts NeoPower 2.0 technology to improve its battery life instead of enhancing the battery capacity itself which can keep balance between hardware and software. As for hardware, it has 4,000mAh battery which has obvious advantage than Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. Besides, we tested it only consumes 4% when watching video online for 30 minutes. And when playing the 3D game for 30 minutes, it also only takes 5% power.


Therefore, we can see NeoPower 2.0 has played important role in battery life. Meanwhile, Nubia Z11 MAX supports Quick charge 3.0 technology. By testing, after it’s out of power totally, we charge it according to the original power adapter to charge 10 minutes, the power has increased from 0% to 11%, in 30 minutes, it is up to 34%, in 60 minutes, it reached 68%. So it can charge full in two hours.
