    “Here is the comparison between Nubia Z17 Mini and Honor 8 to know the best phone between the two”

    This does not tell us anything about which phone is better – there is nothing but spec listing here.

    There is nothing relating to quality of build or real life performance of the phones in any respect.

    From my perspective, this is a totally pointless article.
