Samsung and Apple are arguably the world's most popular smartphone brands at this point. And while this is for good reason - the companies always carry the best available specs in the market - there is normally a large price tag that comes with purchasing their handhelds. That is why Lenovo has provided a perfect alternative: The Lenovo Z2 Plus.
The Lenovo Z2 Plus has two variants available in the market. Those are, 3GB of RAM partnered with 32GB of internal storage, or 4GB of RAM with 64GB of internal storage. However, there is no option to expand this storage. Its screen is 5 inches and has a Full HD display.
As International Business Times India notes, the Lenovo Z2 Plus is the cheapest handheld to sport the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor. It also has a 13 megapixel rear camera and an 8 megapixel front camera. Furthermore, the device carries a 3500 mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0.
The handheld runs on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow straight out of the box.
The home button of the device does more than track back to the homescreen and act as a fingerprint scanner. Found at the bottom of the Z2 Plus it is officially called the U-Touch and is multi-functional. This is because various results come up when different gestures are made over the U-Touch.
The unit, as Tech 2 notes, is a little thicker than its competition as its width is 8.49mm, but weighs just 149 grams. Nevertheless, it fits comfortably in the hand and does not sport any sharp edges.
Holding the device, the user will know that it is one of the sturdiest options in the market. There is, however, nothing that particularly stands out about its design.
The Lenovo Z2 Plus with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage costs around US$270, while the 4GB RAM and 65GB of internal storage option costs around US$300.
