Last week, Lenovo released the Lenovo Z5 and many people were disappointed that the smartphone was over-hyped because what was released is a bit different from what was widely advertised by the company. But make no mistake about it, this smartphone offers good value for money. With a 2.5D Corning Gorilla glass protected 6.2-inch Full-HD+ display and a 19:9 aspect ratio, the company says this device is 40% less prone to scratches. Powered by a Snapdragon 636 chip 6GB of RAM, this smartphone is a bit cool for its 1299 Yuan ($203) starting price tag.
Today, Lenovo Z5 went on its first sale and it had over 340,000 appointments which saw this smartphone selling out in about two minutes.
Although the bezels are quite thin, it is not as thin as the company promised. The chin is 7.69mm thick and this device is currently available in Schumann Black, Aurora, and Indigo blue colour options. In the camera department, we have a front 8MP shooter couple with a 16MP+8MP AI-assisted dual rear camera setup. The lights of the Lenovo Z5 are kept on by a 3300mAh battery and it comes pre-installed with Lenovo’s ZUI system. This system provides a U-Touch 4.0 full-screen gesture operation, new AI music voice, one-touch voice control, support for near-ear automatic answer. The Lenovo Z5 is priced at 1299 Yuan ($203) for the 6GB+64GB edition and 1799 Yuan ($281) for the 6GB+128GB edition.
