Editor's Note [Positives]
  • Well-built metal body, with good ergonomics, which makes a little bit easier to handle compared to the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3
  • Premium looking, suave design
  • Delightful, sharp display with excellent color reproduction, and Gorilla Glass 4 protection
  • Leeco's eUI over Android is neat, and uncluttered
  • Sublime performance, powered by the Snapdragon 652 and 3GB of RAM, which put it right on top in this price bracket, along with the likes of Xiaomi Redmi Note 3
  • Leeco's content services are well integrated, and the free 1 year subscription is a pretty nice value-add
  • The Continual Digital Lossless Audio (CDLA) technology introduced with the phone uses the USB-C interface to drive audio tracks to headphones with more power, higher bit rate and lesser signal noise, thereby providing high resolution, nearly lossless audio
  • Accurate fingerprint sensor
  • Quick-charging battery
  • Nice, premium, polished design
  • Sturdy build quality
  • Given its large size, the weight is quite manageable at 175g
  • Excellent display, perhaps the best at this price point, with great colors and vibrance
  • CynogenMod 12 allows deeper control on the display - you can tweak the colour temperature, and choose different temperatures for day and night
  • The CyanogenMod UI allows a bunch of customisations, that will come in handy if you are a power user, but retains a nearly-stock Android interface
  • The UI is smooth and stable too, and performs well
  • Very good, lag-free performance, even given the somewhat old processor, which indicates how well the software has been optimized
  • Good front camera for selfies
  • Good rear camera in well lit conditions
  • Decent fingerprint sensor
  • Very good battery life - can last over a day fairly easily
  • Very good audio quality
  • If you like modding your smartphone, and have been waiting for a CyanogenMod-powered phone worth buying, this is it
  • The Zuk branded phones are also the only Lenovo devices where rooting won't void the warranty
  • 64GB internal memory
Editor's Note [Negatives]
  • Battery life is good, but not as good as it's top competitor - the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3
  • Camera is good, but not as good as the Moto G4 Plus, which is the top camera phone in this price bracket
  • You will need to use CDLA compliant USB-C headphones to actually derive the benefit of the lossless audio technology (instead of using standard jack headphones with the bundled USB-C to 3.5mm jack adapter)
  • You will not be able to charge the phone at the same time as listening to music, which could be an inconvenience
  • This isn't an ergonomic smartphone - it's quite wide, which puts single handed usage out of question
  • Rear camera could have been better under low-light conditions
  • The camera is also just a little slow in focus speed, compared to it's top competitors in this price range such as the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3
