ZTE Nubia Z30 Pro vs OnePlus 9 Pro vs Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro

It is the moment of Pro and Ultra flagships. Several top-tier flagships made their debut in the last period and it is very hard to choose the best one, especially for those who are not experts in the smartphone world. ZTE came up with the Axon 30 Ultra and Nubia rebranded it into Nubia Z30 Pro: even though it is not exactly the same phone, it is the first rebrand of a top-tier flagship. But is it also the most interesting flagship out there? This comparison with the OnePlus 9 Pro and the Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro will hopefully help you to answer the question regarding its price range.

ZTE Nubia Z30 Pro vs OnePlus 9 Pro vs Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro

Design

Nubia Z30 Pro, OnePlus 9 Pro, and Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro all feature an amazing design with a glass back, an aluminum frame, and a curved display with very narrow bezels. Which one should you go for? It is mostly a matter of taste. Just consider that the OnePlus 9 Pro and Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro are waterproof with the IP68 certification and the latter also offers the latest Corning protection: Gorilla Glass Victus. Which one would you pick?

Display

Nubia Z30 Pro has the highest refresh rate with 144 Hz, but the OnePlus 9 Pro and the Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro come with better displays and they feature higher Quad HD+ resolutions. The OnePlus 9 Pro has the same panel as the OPPO Find X3 Pro with one billion colors, 10-bit color depth, and LTPO technology: it is definitely the most advanced one. The Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro comes right after with its Quad HD+ AMOLED display and a 120 Hz refresh rate. All the phones feature an in-display fingerprint reader.

Hardware/Software

Nubia Z30 Pro, OnePlus 9 Pro, and Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro are powered by the Snapdragon 888 mobile platform and they offer a flagship-class level of performance. There is a phone which is slightly better than the other: the highest-end configuration of the Nubia Z30 Pro which packs 16 GB of RAM and 512 GB of internal storage. OnePlus 9 Pro and Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro sport a max of 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage. The three handsets come with Android 11 out of the box and highly customized user interfaces. The UI of the Oneplus 9 Pro changes depending on the market: it has ColorOS in China and OxygenOS in the rest of the world.

Camera

All of these devices are astonishing camera phones. The Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro is the inferior one as it comes with less stunning sensors, but it is still a high-end camera phone. The battle is between the Hasselblad quad-camera of the Oneplus 9 Pro and the triple 64 MP camera + 8 MP periscope sensor of the Nubia Z30 Pro. The latter looks like the best one on the paper.

Battery

Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro has the biggest battery with a capacity of 5000 mAh and it provides the longest battery life on a single charge. Unfortunately, the Nubia Z30 Pro is the only one to lack wireless charging, but it supports faster wired charging with a power of 120W.

ZTE Nubia Z30 Pro vs OnePlus 9 Pro vs Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro: Price

Nubia Z30 Pro is priced at about €640/$780 in China, the OnePlus 9 Pro starts at $766/€629, and Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro begins at €725/$885. There is not a definitive winner of this comparison: the Nubia Z30 Pro has stunning cameras and faster charging (but lacks wireless charging), the OnePlus 9 Pro (my fave) comes with an amazing display, great cameras, and Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro has a bigger battery but inferior cameras. Which one would you choose?
