Lenovo Z2 Plus Review
Lenovo Z2 Plus Review at first glance is a very sturdy looking phone with fiber glass frame. This was originally introduced in China as ZUK Z2 back in May. With a 5-inch 1080p screen, Snapdragon 820 processor and a unibody glass and metal design, the specifications of the phone look good on paper.
The integrated home button with fingerprint scanner offers several functionalities. Given the screen size of 5-inches, the phone can be operated with one hand. The phone runs on 2.15GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor with 4GB of RAM AND 64 GB ROM. The phone comes with a 13-megapixel camera at the back and an 8-megapixel secondary camera in the front.
Features of Lenovo Z2 Plus
Lenovo Z2 Plus Design and screen
The Z2 Plus breaks away from tradition when it comes to the design. With a screen size of 5.0 inches, the Z2 Plus is designed for one-handed use. The display is sharp and detailed, with text and images looking crisp. Colors are rich and accurate, and you can adjust the color temperature by heading into the Settings.
The fingerprint sensor on the Z2 Plus works even when the screen is off, and the button itself has picked up new tricks. The button called U-Touch can be used to go back to the home screen, but it also supports gestures. It is one of the best features of the phone, and once you get used to navigating with U-Touch, you’ll regret going back to a boring home button that serves a single purpose.
Lenovo Z2 Plus Hardware
The Z2 Plus comes with a fully-enabled 14nm Snapdragon 820 SoC with a 64-bit quad-core Kryo CPU with two cores clocked at 2.15GHz and the other two at 1.6GHz. The phone also offers a 13MP ISOCELL camera that shoots 4K video, 8MP front camera, Wi-Fi ac, Bluetooth 4.1, USB-C, and a 3500mAh battery.
Lenovo Z2 Plus Software
The Lenovo Z2 Plus comes with a stock Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS. It is not skinned like the Lenovo Vibe series phones. The company has decided to offer its in-house ZUI ROM in the Z2 Plus. Lenovo could have just gone and added another tab beside the notifications which is the most sensible thing to do. You get a 2×4 grid of quick options which can be swiped to reveal more options.
Lenovo Z2 Plus Battery
The Z2 Plus comes with a 3500mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0. The phone uses USB-C for charging, as is becoming more and more common in the mid-range segment. The battery life turned out to be quite good, with PC Mark for Android giving an impressive 10 hours 10 minutes.
Lenovo Z2 Plus Camera
The Lenovo Z2 Plus comes with a 13MP ISOCELL rear camera with 1.34 micron pixel size and an f/2.2 aperture which is complemented with a 8MP front-facing camera with a 1.4 micron pixel size. The camera interface is slightly modified from a stock Google camera. Lenovo’s camera app has quick shortcuts for toggling the front and rear cameras, select between still images or video, accessing the gallery, enabling HDR, and flash. .
