2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Good build quality with a fibreglass frame to keep the weight down and a magnesium alloy roll cage for sturdiness
  • Chic, premium design (similar to the iPhone 5S)
  • Compact, convenient size with a 5-inch screen making it one of the few easy-to-handle premium smartphones in the market today - something that will appeal to a lot of people who want power and quality, but not large phablet-esque dimensions
  • Manages to keep a relatively slim profile and manageable weight of 150g
  • Fast, accurate fingerprint sensor (embedded in the home button) - significantly improved compared to the Zuk Z1
  • Extended home button functionality is very nicely implemented, and allows for quick navigation via gestures
  • Very good display - sharp, clean and bright, with colours that are fairly accurate and natural-looking
  • Display customization options includes colour temperature, as well as a night mode
  • Lenovo's ZUI launcher, is mostly stock Android, with a few customisations
  • Excellent speed/performance throughout - on par with top-end Android flagship smartphones - and yet at a mid-range price!
  • Very good battery life - can muster over a day and half with moderate use
  • Decent call quality
  • Decent rear camera - handles colours and finer details well
  • The 8-megapixel on the front is also good and delivers crisp and wide shots
  • Superb build quality
  • Stunning, top-end design - with polished metal frame and beautiful reflective glass panels
  • Good ergonomics - it feels pleasant to hold the device in hand
  • Excellent, class-leading display - good color reproduction, deep blacks, the highest ever resolution on a mobile screen to-date
  • Xpreia's UI on top Android runs well and has several nifty useful features
  • Fingerprint scanner fast and reliable and conveniently placed
  • Excellent, top-notch speed/performance backed by top-of-the-line hardware
  • Good camera
  • Very good call quality
  • Good audio quality
  • Decent loudspeakers
  • Good battery life
2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • As is the case with phones that have a glass back, it is a bit of a smudge magnet
  • The charger included in the box is an ordinary 10W unit rather than a Fast Charge 3.0 capable charger - which means that the phone's fast charging capabilities don't get fully utilized
  • Average loudspeaker

No Major Negatives!
