Last firmware update z2 pro gets many bugs. Bluetooth (music device connectivity issues);camera not open some times ;apps crashing many times;Sucking more ram memory(only 400mb free available on 3gb of ram)
I have used Lenovo Vibe Z2 for the last one year, I had the following problems
1. The switches Vol+ and Vol- stopped working one after the other ( Hardware problem ) poor quality Switches, I got it replaced during the warranty period, still paid ~$15 since i have updated the firmware.
2. Now the power on switch has failed, pressed many times and was able to power up,
Overall it is a high performance, low reliable phone, low cost phone.
AnonD-389624, 06 Jun 2015I just got this phone too, a few days ago, and I have to agree, it's amazing for all those poi... moreSorry to interup a lenovo insiders/advocates (referring to those who get lenovo devices for free) meeting but the specs are just good not incredible. The Snapdragon 801 SoC isn't x64 for example. The Adreno 330 is still a good GPU but certainly not incredible (was incredible about a year ago)The 2K screen is just for marketing and puts unnecessary "pressure" on the CPU&GPU,battery life could be better(realistically 1,5 days max/normal usage)and the camera in unrivalled, by other Lenovo phones maybe(makes good pictures but still has some focus issues)....Long story short an MTK MT6752 device(you can get one of those with 2-3GB of RAM for 160-240$) offers more or less the same performance and the MT6752 IS x64(better Lollipop performance).
Again the phone isn't bad(the specs match last years flagship phones), the newly launched Lolipoop firmware(yes,Lenovo holds the record for beeing the last manufacturer that upgrades it's flagship to Android 5...that gives you an idea what to expect in the future.Android M?Not in this lifetime) but the Zenfone2(the good one) beets the crap out of Lenovo's k920 in both specs and design....Only if you really,really nead a 6" dual-SIM phablet the Z2 Pro is a good option.
BTW:Who makes a phablet flagship?! What's up whit that?
This is my short but more realistic (I'm not a Lenovo insider,sorry) review.
Dr.Kiran Shankar, 26 May 2015Hello,I recently bought lenovo Vibe Z2 pro...Ive beenu using this phone for tha last one month... moreI just got this phone too, a few days ago, and I have to agree, it's amazing for all those points outlined above by Dr. Kiran Shankar.
Absolutely fabulous Display and Camera (almost unrivaled)
Awesome hardware specs: Snapdragon 801, etc...
Incredible battery life, considering the qHD display resolution. Holds me a staggering 4 days in light usage, alsmot 1 full week in standby, and over 10 hours in continous video playback with wifi and 4G networks ON.
And nevertheless: Absolutely GREAT looks. All metal, with awesome stainless edges.
It's really a PRO phone for PROs only!
Tictad, 05 Jun 2015Got this phone a few days ago and my simcard won't read. So its as good as not having a phone!... moreWhich country are you?Iam using this machine near perfect phone in Nigeria and have no regrets at all in all its stated facilities and performance. Only noticed that the AUTO ROTATE doesn't start for long after activated. You need to reactivate often.Also the GPS doesn't function even though its activated. I rate this LENOVO VIBE ZPRO phone very high.Recommended for all.

Got this phone a few days ago and my simcard won't read. So its as good as not having a phone! Worse off I connected to Wi-Fi and it did work for a min. When I tried connecting it again it refused. I've been looking for lenovo email address so that I let them now the problem but their customer care is full of shit!! No email add anywhere! What's upsetting me the most is I bought this phone from Dubai Int airport and I'm not going back anytime soon! I don't know what to do! This company should be closed
I recently bought the version with Google play already installed with English and I was very hopeful that this phone would be a good option but it's a huge mistake. No 4g in America and it crashes constantly even with no programs running. It freezes at least twice a day and will not turn back on for 10 minutes. So many issues with this phone! It overheats very easily and burns my fingers. There is no way possible for it to update if you have the version that comes with Google play. I am forever stuck with whatever it came with. It also has MASSIVE amounts of junk programs installed which cannot be uninstalled, my notification bar is constantly filled with icons and stupid reminders and ADS from the programs that were preinstalled trying to get me to download more junk or buy something!!!!!!
The reception is also garbage. The only plus side to this phone is the camera.
