Обзор смартфона Lenovo ZUK Z1

 

Популярный фаблет наконец-то появился и в России: 5.5-дюймовый дисплей, FHD-разрешение, IPS-матрица, чипсет Qualcomm Snapdragon 801, 64 ГБ внутренней и 3 ГБ оперативной памяти, и всё это за 20 000 рублей на полках российских магазинов

К качеству передачи речи нет никаких претензий, вы и ваш собеседник отлично друг друга слышите.

Lenovo ZUK Z1 review: Good combination of hardware and software that is priced right! - Tech2

 

Many in India may have not heard about ZUK. But add the fact that Lenovo has backed the company, and things get a lot more interesting. As we used the smartphone for a week, we discovered that the Lenovo Z1 does have a lot going for it even with that...

Priced at Rs 13,499, the Lenovo ZUK Z1 (or the ZUK Z1) is worth your money. And it does pack in some goodies like a polished metal body, optical image stabilization and bloatware-free buttery smooth Cyanogen OS. Then there’s the large 4100mAh battery...

Lenovo Zuk Z1 review:

 

The Lenovo Zuk Z1 is a $320 Android phone that looks a lot like an iPhone 6S Plus. Its rear camera takes mediocre pictures and its fingerprint scanner doesn't always read your fingerprint. Its biggest saving grace is the phone's super-long battery life.

The Lenovo Zuk Z1 has a clean software interface and a comfortable Apple iPhone-ish frame. Battery life is fantastic, too.

The camera performs terribly with lots of image noise, and the fingerprint sensor doesn't always sense your fingers to unlock the phone.

Buy the Lenovo Zuk Z1 only if you're in need of super long battery life and don't care about camera quality. Otherwise, there are more well-rounded options available.

The Zuk Z1 comes to us from the Chinese electronics giant's subsidiary brand, Zuk Mobile. The phone is not officially available in western markets, but can be found at Zuk's online third-party retailers that sell Chinese phones.

Lenovo ZUK Z1 review: Great budget option, if you don’t mind the old processor

 

Lenovo Zuk Z1 with Cyanogen OS and 64GB space is a great option for users, who don't see the old Snapdragon 801 processor as a problem.
