Many have been thinking the Lenovo Z5 would be a top-end model with unseen and unheard features. So when it was out, many customers were disappointed. But the truth is the Z5 is a classic mid-range smartphone that sports a number of trendy features and costs quite affordable at the same time. If you remember, the company said there is no need to praise Apple and other top brands for making smartphones like the iPhone X. It’s a piece of cake to design a similar phone. And we have to say it’s difficult not to agree with Lenovo. Of course, we understand the Z5 yields the iPhone X in some aspects. But generally, it can handle all of your daily tasks. Plus, it is priced incomparably low. That’s why all of its versions were sold out instantly. Even the second and the third batches went out of stock in seconds. One of the most outstanding variants, the Lenovo Z5 Schumann black version was no exception. And today, we learned it is available for purchase again, priced at 1299 yuan ($190). By the way, it is 100 yuan less than other color options.
The Lenovo Z5 was announced on June 5. After a week, the first bunch of the phone went on sale. But it was sold out in 2 minutes. The second batch went on sale after a couple of days. But they all have suffered the same fate. Even the Indigo Blue and Aurora versions were sold out in seconds. As you see, the Lenovo Z5 is a very popular model. So there is no guarantee the Schumann black version will stay on shelves for a long time.
Well, we have already managed to understand the Lenovo Z5 sells like a hotcake. So we should recall its key features in order to understand what makes it so attractive.
The Lenovo Z5 uses a double-sided 2.5D glass, an 8-layer technology to create a magical glare body, and other manufacturing processes to provide the best look and touch feelings. On the front, it carries a 6.2-inch full-screen with a resolution of 2246×1080.
As for hardware, the phone sports a Snapdragon 636 mid-range chip, paired with a 6GB of RAM, 64GB/128GB of internal storage, and a 3300mAh battery. The latter can provide up to 30 minutes of call time at 0% of power. All these features sound quite attractive, but the selling point of the Lenovo Z5 is its photographing features. There is a 16MP + 8MP dual-camera with an aperture of f/2.0 and an AI portrait mode support. On the front, it carries an 8MP selfie snapper supporting 100 beauty adjustments.
The 6+64GB model is priced at 1399 yuan ($204)/1299 yuan, while the 6+128GB variant comes at 1799 yuan ($263).
