We are humbled by the situation around the newly announced Lenovo Z5. There was a case when a good smartphone couldn’t find its place under the sun and was ignored because many had been thinking the Xiaomi Mi 5S will be an innovative smartphone with all the best features, but it didn’t. Seems an identical attitude has been towards the Z5. We have been thinking it will come with a 100% full-screen, a 4TB storage, ultra-low price tag, etc. But the truth is that we are dealing with a mid-range handset with a trendy look and a couple of eye-catching features. The manufacturer announced this model is focusing on a stylish look and a performance. At the same time, the Z5 costs quite competitive. Tomorrow it is going on sale. So you can evaluate it yourself.
As for the key features, the Lenovo Z5 sports a 6.2-inch full-screen with an aspect ratio of 19:9, a screen ratio of 90% (though it was rumored to exceed 95%), a DCI-P3 color gamut support, and a brightness up to 700 nits. Undoubtedly, the screen and the overall look are the number one selling point of this handset. It can compete with any top-branded model when it comes to the appearances. So all the praises go to it.
Under the hood, the Lenovo Z5 carries a Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 chip, which is paired with a 6GB of RAM, 64/128GB of native storage, and a 3300mAh battery. By the way, the latter supports a power-saving option that allows talking for half an hour at a 0% remaining power. The phone also runs on the newest ZUI 4.0 OS. There is also an 8MP camera on the front and a 16+8MP dual-camera on the back. It supports AI.
The pricing varies from configuration to configuration and from color to color. The Schumann Black 6GB+64GB is priced at 1299 yuan, while the same memory combination of Aurora and Indigo cost 1399 yuan. The 6+128GB version is available in Aurora and Indigo only and costs 1799 yuan.
