INTRODUCTION

Lenovo Zuk Z2 Pro

In less than 2 years since its inception, ZUK Mobiles have successfully launched two flagship models for Lenovo. For those who are unaware, ZUK is a subsidiary of Lenovo and caters to its smartphone sector. The company has partnered with Cynogen Inc, so all devices feature the much-acclaimed CyanogenMod, a custom ROM which makes Android a bit more fun, while simultaneously letting you explore the powerful interface of your phone.

The Zuk Z2 Pro was launched in April this year, in succession to its predecessor Z1, which was released in the market in the first week of August 2015. Needless to say, there are significant improvements in the Z2 Pro, right from its design to the performance. Being a flagship phone, there are expectations that the Z2 Pro has to fulfil, and we give a complete review in the sections below to help you get a fair understanding of what to expect.

DESIGN AND DISPLAY

In the first glance, the device looks beautiful and very visually appealing. It is slim (7.5mm in width) and weighs only a 145g. A welcome change here is the placement of a physical home button at the centre of the bottom bezel. The side bezels are very narrow too, giving the device an ideal device to body ratio of approx. 73%. Other notable improvements are the 3D glass rear panel, and the 2.5D curved display to top it off.

The display consists of a 5.2 inch full HD SUPER AMOLED display which is further protected by Corning Gorilla Glass. It supports a maximum resolution of 1920x1080 pixels and an impressive pixel density of 424ppi. It means that every pixel is very well defined, and no matter what you view on the screen, it is bright, crisp, and very natural.

PERFORMANCE AND CONFIGURATION

Given the fact that the Z2 Pro is a flagship device, you can expect more than just a decent performance. To begin with, the phone comes with a Snapdragon 820 chipset, the same that is used in a variety of high-end smartphones, including the Samsung S7 and S7 Edge, the LG G5, HTC 10 and OnePlus 3, only to name a few. This is coupled with an octa-core Kryo CPU, with both high performance cores clocked at 2.15GHz. Attached to it is the Adreno 530 as the graphical processing unit.

There are two variations available – a 6GB RAM with 128GB internal memory, and the other with 4GB combined with 64GB of internal space. The benchmarks are very impressive but even better is the 3D rendering, so say yes to games!

CAMERA AND MULTIMEDIA

The camera featured is excellent, and relatively better than some of the best in the price range. The main imaging device is a 13MP camera unit, with an aperture of F1.8 and dual LED flash. Even low light images are a breeze to focus and capture, and reproduce sufficient colour and brightness. Videos can be shot at 2160fps using the rear camera, while the front camera can take HD videos at 1080p. Furthermore, the secondary camera is an 8MP unit with an aperture of 2.0, again, better than most in this category.

BATTERY AND CONNECTIVITY

The battery is the only aspect where it could use some improvement since it only features a 3100mAh unit. While this isn’t poor in any aspect, the hardware sucks a great amount of the power juice in keeping the phone running at optimum speed. Connectivity features include support for all standard wireless protocols, Wi-Fi Direct, Hotspot, Bluetooth and USB v3.1.
