Lenovo throwsback to the smaller 5.0 inch days with the probably smallest Flagship of 2016, the Lenovo ZUK  Z2 at just 5.0 inch is the smallest and most compact Flagship of 2016. The smartphone bares a top tier Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 Chipset with 4 GB RAM and about 64 GB of eMMC Storage to boot. There is unfortunately no support for Micro SD Support. The phone also or Lenovo’s very own Z UI, which is based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

Also worth mentioning is the Lenovo Zuk Z2 Pro version, which has a slightly bigger 5.2 inch Screen but is AMOLED Type meaning the contrasts and image quality are far superior. It will also come with 6 GB RAM and UFS storage to boot. However, it does have a smaller 3100mAh battery underneath. The other features are similar to the standard ZuK Z2 but you will have to pay more to get the Pro version.

Other notable features include UTouch, which acts as a multi functional home button, not only for Fingerprint ID Recognition, but as an all in one navigational tool (back key and multitasking key etc…), which can be customized according to your preference.

Lenovo’s very own Z UI runs the system, which is unfortunately far from perfect, it still lacks App Draw. The  UI may not be of everyone’s taste and perhaps may have a love or hate relationship. But it is still based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

The phone also sports a 13 megapixel Samsung ISOCELL Camera, which also features quick focus and shutter speeds. At the front is also a wide angle lens. The Zuk Z2 Pro version will offer EIS/OIS (Optical Image Stabilization) and a slightly improved video performance.

The phone will support multiple bands internationally and also VOLTE Voice technology. It also comes with Dual Band WiFi Support and USB Type C connectivity. Underneath is also a decent size 3500mAh battery, which is surprising big for most 5.0 inch smartphones.
