Lenovo Zuk Z2 Review – Great Tech for a Good Price

The Lenovo Zuk Z2 packs some powerful tech inside it even though it is found within a relatively reasonable price point. What you will get is the Snapdragon 820 chipset, 4GN of RAM, a fingerprint scanner, a very sharp 5-inch screen, and 64GB of internal storage right off the bat. Furthermore, it runs on the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow operating system from the get-go, and it even has a 13-megapixel rear snapper which is even capable of capturing videos in 4K resolution. There’s an 8-megapixel selfie snapper at the front as well. So what’s the catch for all of this? Well, you don’t get LTE band 20 support, and there’s no NFC in it.

The Lenovo Zuk Z2 Gives a Lot of Storage Space for the Right Price

Like its hardware specifications, the Lenovo Zuk Z2 holds much promise in other areas, such as its build quality. For starters there’s a 2.5D glass found on the front and rear of the device. The glass rounds of neatly along the edges, and these appear to have some kind of coating in order to keep your greasy, sweaty, and/or dirty fingerprints to a minimum.

When taking it and holding it in the hand, the Zuk Z2 definitely feels like it is a keeper. However, because of the flat and glossy back panel, it does mean that it might slide off easily in just about any surface you place it on. Therefore, it would be wise to always place it on top of a flat surface, or you risk letting the fall come crashing down hard on the floor. It might also be a good idea to invest in a good protective case should you want to purchase this handset.

Turn on its display and you will be met with a 5-inch IPS touchscreen with a resolution of 1,080 x 1,920 pixels. Furthermore, it has an amazing pixel density of 414-pixels-per-inch, which means that images and text look pin sharp when looking at them through the device’s screen. To compare, the performance being brought about by this phone’s screen is closely similar to that of the iPhone 7’s. However, it doesn’t do well with the color reproduction department.

Ultimately, even though the Lenovo Zuk Z2 does have its own set of shortcomings, its positives definitely outweigh the negatives. However, you would have to deal with lower mobile Internet speeds because it doesn’t have LTE band 20 support.
