Phonecurry's 2-Minute Review

quick-read review written by the phonecurry editorial team, summarising opinion across 13 Expert Reviews

What we liked

  • 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

What we didn't

  • 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
