Lenovo have got a little more pep in their step. They recently came out with a high end phone- Lenovo Vibe Z. The specification sheet surely looks fascinating to anyone, but we are here to answer if they live up to those numbers or not. Let’s dive into the Lenovo Vibe Z.


Design

The phone is surely attractive. Even if you do not like the flat edgy hardware design, you will think this phone looks pretty cool. The nice synthetic metallic back adds an extra awesome dimension to the goodness of the build quality to the Lenovo Vibe Z. It is kind of a chunky phone though. It is not very heavy but for a phone with a 5.5 inch display, it is surely large and heavy. Women should not have a problem in their purses but guys might get annoyed.

Display

The 5.5 inch full HD Display is nothing but a blessing for Lenovo Vibe Z. It compliments that awesome look of the phone, its hardware outer design. The colours are nice and vibrant. The composure looks good, saturation- balanced. The size is an advantage when it comes to entertainment- be it reading, watching or playing games on the phone. Lenovo Vibe Z’s display is a simple advantage you would surely enjoy.

Camera

Lenovo Vibe Z is a complete phone. It is one of the coolest phones around. To add to that incredible design and display there is this incredible camera. Lenovo Vibe Z has a 13MP primary sensor. The user interface is pretty normal, if you are not satisfied the power of Android gives you a ton of apps to add that creative touch to these photos. Naturally, the photos from the Lenovo Vibe Z come out pretty. The colours are a little faded but overall representation seems to be commendable. Detailing is also a strong suit of Lenovo Vibe Z. The front camera is great as well.

Software

Compared to Samsung, HTC and LG I would not say Lenovo has done a great job with their software integration and user interface. It is Android-y but it is nothing too cool or feature-full. What the UI is, clean and free from unnecessary clutter. I like the whole set up but it should have been better. Lenovo Vibe Z runs on the Android v4.3 Jelly Bean, a KitKat update is unknown.

Performance

You get one of the fastest processors you can on this bad boy. Lenovo Vibe Z runs on the Snapdragon 800 by Qualcomm. It goes without saying that the 800 will make your phone run as smooth as anything else around. You get 2GB RAM and 16GB internal memory with no expansion options. The battery gives you a good 2 days of moderate usage backup. Lenovo Vibe Z is easy to use, it is a smooth customer and yeah- a good multitasker.
