Lenovo has been growing at a very fast pace in the smartphone market around the world. In their quest for becoming one of the popular global brands, they have also acquired many other smartphone manufacturers too, like Medion and Motorola. In Spite of acquiring several brands and considering its name too, Lenovo, markets and sell a range of products online under its “Zuk” brand. However, recently the trend seems to be shifting, as Lenovo launched its “Lenovo Z2 Plus” smartphone in the market, which was originally a Zuk product. According to the company sources, the exact reason behind such move is to assimilate all of their brands under one banner slowly. So, let’s see how the Lenovo Z2 Plus works in real life.
The first thing that we observed with the phone was its amazing form factor. Lenovo has provided a 5 inches display over the phone instead of the 5.5 inches screen which is getting more common in the smartphone industry. The unusual form factor makes the phone easy to carry and look more beautiful. The phone appears to have taken inspiration from iPhone SE, but has larger dimensions. Fibreglass has been used to make the frame of the phone, and a magnesium alloy cage has been provided to make the phone tough. A physical home button is provided in the phone upon which is embedded the fingerprint scanner. The phone has been provided with a glass back, which adds to the beauty of the phone. The phone weighs 149 grammes, which again is easily manageable and is available in two colour variants i.e. Black and White. A 5.0-inches full-HD LTPS LCD capacitive touchscreen that provides a screen resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels. The display looks sharp and bright, while the colour reproduction seems fairly accurate. The display of the phone is great, however, not the best in class in its price range. The colour temperature of the phone can also be changed to one of the three present options i.e. cold, warm and neutral. The sunlight legibility of the phone is great, and so are the viewing angles.
The phone features with a Quad-core (2.15 GHz, Dual core, Kryo + 1.59 GHz, Dual core, Kryo) processor that is backed by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 MSM8996 chipset. The processor easily plays heavy applications, and one can breeze through multiple applications side by side without encountering any kinds of lag or stutter. The Adreno 530 GPU ensures that graphic intensive 3D games are played on the phone without any problem. Overall, the processor turns out to be a real workhorse and can be easily termed as the best feature of the phone. The phone is available in two models i.e. 3GB of RAM with 32GB of internal storage and 4GB of RAM with 64GB of internal storage. The phone runs on Android version 6.0.1 i.e. Marshmallow with the help of custom-built ZUI user interface. The phone also features a loudspeaker which according to us sounded a bit tinny. The phone supports dual SIM and also supports 4G networks.
The phone features with a 13 MP Primary Camera with f/2.2 and backed by phase detection autofocus and LED flashlight. The camera settings include Exposure compensation and ISO control. Shooting Modes include continuous shooting and High Dynamic Range mode (HDR). Camera features include Digital Zoom, Auto Flash, Face detection and Touch to focus. An 8.0-MP front camera has also been provided in the phone. When we tested the rear camera, we noticed that the picture quality turned out to be average. Many a time we found that the images turned out to be grainy and lacking colours. The front shooter takes some decent selfies. If one is looking for a phone that offers an amazing camera, then one might skip this one. However, for occasional photography, the camera works great. A 3.5mm audio jack with active noise cancellation and a dedicated mic is also provided in the phone. When tested we found that the call quality was excellent and the network was available all the times.
The phone comes with a 3500mAh Li-Polymer non-user replaceable battery that can run for a complete day with heavy usage. The battery supports quick-charging but the fast charger doesn't come with the phone. The phone hosts a range of connectivity options, such as Wi-Fi 802.11, a/ac/b/g/n/n 5GHz, Mobile Hotspot, Bluetooth version 4.1, A-GPS, Glonass and USB Type-C. The other sensors that come with the phone include Light sensor, Proximity sensor, Accelerometer, Compass and Gyroscope.
