It is a high end model that is capable of beating other phones the same price range. This time Lenovo pushed this phone a level further offering you mixture of performance and looks. Lenovo is struggling from long time to make a good name under the Smartphone product line and it looks like through Lenovo Vibe Z2 Pro, Lenovo is going to surprise many. This one is the latest additional that brings very unique features and looks.
So today we will be finding out whether Lenovo Vibe Z2 Pro is a true performance phone or just a flashy product. Vibe Z2 Pro was in news since couple of months. This phone comes in a nice packing box which ha s rich look. The entire box is black with Lenovo logo on the top. From no angle the pack looks like dull or cheap. In the box you will get a sim tool and screen protector. But there is no folio cover which I was expecting here. All accessories looks like made from premium quality.
Design & Packaging:
Lenovo Vibe Z2 Pro has a great look. Instead of using plastic enclosure, Lenovo has used a metal body on the same. This justifies the cost here. There are hardly any phone which comes with true metal enclosure. The product quality is very good here. This entire phone is based on aluminum plate. And the backside is nice with brushed finish. It looks a very stylish and premium phone to me. Also at some part like on the top and on the bottom Lenovo has added plastic which is thick and good. It does not cause any issue to the body quality. It can be done to cover the ports. Metal body here does not mean that the phone will be heavy from any angle. It is light enough to carry. The weight of this pone is around 179g. And the metal body also gives you a good grip while holding the same. It is not slippery at all.
The thickness of this phone is around 7.7mm which makes it very sleek. It adds more to the look. AT first when I saw I thought this phone will be thick but Lenovo has maintained the quality here. It gives you a 6inch big size display with very wide space on the front. Due to solid build quality the phone looks amazing. 6inch screen means a big phone and there are chances of bending. But in Lenovo Vibe Z2 Pro the metal body takes care about the same. It projects the phone from bending as it is strong. You will be surely impressed with the build quality of this phone. At the front side you can size this vibrate 6inch display supported by three capacity touch button at the bottom.
Here Lenovo has tried to take maximum benefit from the overall size. So that there must be no empty space. The front camera is upgraded to 5MP which deliver good video conferencing output and also help you to take great selfies. There is a notification led on the top side the line with camera and light sensors. Volume rocker is placed on the left side. At the right you can see a sim tray with power button. The power button is the same key for unlocking the screen. Lenovo Vibe Z2 looks very decent from side. AT the bottom lies a multipurpose microusb port. Mice and speaker are also placed on the bottom. Speaker placement is quiet good here. In many phone this is at the backside that block voice.
At the top you can find a 3.5mm audio jack. At the backside Lenovo Vibe Z2 Pro has a 16MP camera with dual LED flash on the backside. The camera placement is similar to Sony Xperia Z series, that is at the left top. Overall body design of this phone is amazing. It looks very rich and premium pone. Lenovo Vibe Z2 Pro does not come with a micro SD card slot. The internal storage is comes in 32GB version.
Lenovo Vibe Z2 Pro gives you benefit of a 6inch screen. Big screen does not mean dull output. This is a vibrant IPS LCD display that allows you to have a resolution of 2560×1440. It is a very high HD resolution and the pixel density is around 490ppi. For more security, Lenovo has added Gorilla Glass 3 projection on the front display.
So you have to worry less about breaking and scratching. Lenovo provides a custom UI in the phone. It does not rely on the stock android OS. Due to which you get a extra menu that allow you to access common settings like brightness, tone, contract, quickly. This menu is dedicated for the screen so that you can make it clear as per you need. There are set of different modes that you can access.
Operating System & UI:
Lenovo Vibe Z2 Pro runs on the latest Android 4.4.2 Kitkat operating system with a customized UI. The new tweak in the UI makes it very much similar to iOS. But somehow Lenovo is able to maintain the uniqueness but not fully making it look like iOS. This phone comes with a new feature that is provided by the company. It is the phone that can offer you a dual boot option. But for that you have to be bit expert on mobile operating system platform. The current Android edition makes it very useful and in future also this phone is going to get new tings. This device will be getting all new updates in the coming time.
Because here Lenovo has already cleared that Lenovo Vibe Z2 Pro will have all new and upcoming android updates. Which matters a lot here. At a time you can add upto 18 screen. That means you can add as many apps as you want. And the phones doe not lag or free on the same. Theming is done quite well. All the apps look fine on this device. Through settings you can configure various things.
Vibe Z2 Pro brings up a new thing called as secure zone for extra security which you can create. A secure zone allows you to keep app, accounts, and wallpapers locked. And to add anything you just have to tap on the same. It is an impressive feature for those who do not want others to access their data. Lenovo also provide you few extra apps that can allow you to go ahead with day to day work. There are some great privacy features on the same.
