This company from China Lenovo z2 plus Has given many new features. Its price will start from Rs 17,999 and will go on sale next week. We spent some time with the Lenovo Z2 Plus during the launch event. Let us tell you how we felt this phone at first glance.
Looking at it from a distance, the Z2 Plus will remind you of the iPhone 5S, but once you take it in hand, confusion breaks. This phone with a 5 inch screen will fit easily in your hands. The Z2 Plus is easy to grip due to the curved edges. During the launch, Lenovo official Anuj Sharma insisted that the Z2 Plus is designed to be used with one hand. The Z2 Plus uses a fiberglass frame. Talking about the design, Lenovo India praised the Z2 Plus Roll Cage. It was claimed that it would increase structural integrity and also manage thermal balance.

The 5-inch display of the Z2 Plus has a resolution of 1080×1920 pixels. The display is sharp and text crisps are seen. However, its brightness was less than we expected. The display feels a bit tired in the sunlight. There is no branding on the front panel of the Z2 Plus. Lenovo's logo is on the back. Below the display is a rectangular home button with integrated fingerprint sensor. The power and volume buttons are on the right side and are easily accessible with the thumb.
Curved glass has been used on the rear panel, which gives a good feeling to the hands. However, it slips too much in the hands. The two SIM slots are on the right side. At the bottom you will find a speaker grill, 3.5mm audio jack and USB Type-C charging port.
Lenovo Z2 Plus has a “U Touch 2.0” fingerprint scanner. It can be used for a variety of tasks – single touch to go back, long-touch notifications, press twice for app switcher. By swiping left or right, you will be able to access the app used a while back.
Shortcuts can also be customized according to user needs. In the limited time spent with the device, we found that Gesture did the right thing. However, it will take some time to get accustomed to them.
The company claims that the fingerprint sensor is 99.7 percent accurate and it keeps learning continuously, which means it will get better by using it.
In the Lenovo Z2 Plus, the company has made minor changes to Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Lenovo has made Google Now Launcher the default launcher for the Indian market. User Launcher is subject to change.
Lenovo also told about the inbuilt U-Health app at the launch event. The Z2 Plus has a pedometer in addition to a gyroscope, compass sensor, accelerometer, light sensor and proximity sensor. Lenovo has tried to make the Z2 Plus a fitness and activity tracking device through all these sensors. The U-Health app can be easily tracked with any fitness tracking device.
Dual SIM Z2 Plus has 4G with VoLTE feature, which means that you will be able to take advantage of Reliance Jio's services with it. Lenovo explained how people leave the phone to charge throughout the night. Equipped with a 3500 mAh battery, this phone has a charge cut-off feature, which will ensure that the battery is not overcharged.
The 13-megapixel rear camera has an isocell sensor, PDAF (phase detection autofocus), electronic image stabilization, f / 2.2 aperture and LED flash. Like other expensive Android smartphones, you will be able to record 4K video from Z2 Plus. It is equipped with slow-motion video and full-HD time lapse. We took some great pictures in Mango Indoor Lighting. Low light shots were also better than average. Pictures taken with an 8 megapixel selfie camera also came out better. We found that the camera app was easy to use. It launched rapidly. We found that the rear camera of the smartphone focused sharply. For some technical reasons we could not test all the camera modes of the Z2 Plus. You will get detailed information about it during the review.
The company has used the 2.15 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset in the handset. With this you will have the option to choose from 3 GB RAM + 32 GB storage and 4 GB RAM + 64 GB storage. Storage cannot be increased. In the limited time spent with the phone, we found that there was no problem in multitasking. And it gave good response to touch input. Apps launched rapidly and there was no problem in switching from one to the other. We will not say much about the performance of Lenovo Z2 Plus. This will be discussed in detail in the review.
