Lenovo Z2 Plus – Here Are The Reasons Why You Should Go For Itby Ryan Dsouza September 26, 2016
Lenovo has launched the Z2 Plus in India and will be made exclusively available on Amazon from 26th September 2016. The Z2 Plus is the rebranding of the Zuk Z2 that was announced in China in May this year. So, if you have already read about the Zuk Z2 earlier, you probably know what’s coming your way.
The handset will have two variants – one with a 3GB RAM and a storage capacity of 32GB and other with a more powerful 4GB RAM and 64GB of storage, priced at Rs. 17,999 and Rs. 19,999 respectively.
But, is the device actually worth the price-tag? The specs below might have the answer.
5-inch display with a 1080 x 1920 pixel resolution
2.15 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC processor
Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow
3GB / 4GB RAM
32GB / 64GB of internal storage options
13MP primary camera
8MP secondary camera
The Lenovo Z2 Plus will be powered by Android Marshmallow, unlike the Lenovo Zuk Z1 that came with Cyanogen OS. Apart from being preloaded with Google Now, the handset will also include the U-Health app which can precisely track the steps or the distance you have walked.
Contrary to the other brands that are currently trying to push beyond the traditional 5-inch display limit, Lenovo intends to stick to a 5-incher for now, which is definitely not a bad idea. A 2.15 GHz Snapdragon processor coupled with a 3GB/4GB RAM is a good call.
Regarding internal memory, you can pick between a 32GB and a 64GB variant. There is no option for further expanding the memory. But, that shouldn’t be a problem if you don’t wish to dump all your data onto your phone.
The device has a 13MP camera located at the back with LED flash and EIS (Electronic Image Stabilization). In the front, you have an 8MP snapper to take care of all your selfie needs.
Most importantly, the Lenovo Z2 Plus comes with an impressive Bwith a charge auto cut-off feature that prevents the battery from getting overcharged.
Lastly, the home button will include the U Touch 2.0 fingerprint scanner, which is claimed to be highly accurate. Talking about the colours, the Z2 Plus is presently available only in black and white.
So, with all of these features packed in, is the phone worth the price tag that’s well over 15K? To be honest, the device, in fact, offers everything one would expect, at least at a cost that’s not more than 20K. Take, for instance, the 3500 mAh battery. Moreover, we rarely come across devices with a price that low and still featuring a fingerprint scanner. Adding up more glamour to the sight is the U-Health app, at least to all the fitness freaks out there.
Now, if you are looking for a mid-range smartphone with all the desired features and a little bit more, the Z2 Plus would be an awesome choice. However, if something less expensive is on your mind, check out the Lenovo Zuk Z1.
