By checking this page on official Lenovo website, I think I really have to give up this model if what mentioned in the website is true. There are no plan to upgrade the Lenovo Z6 Pro to Android 10.
The closest alternative I can get would be Xiaomi Mi9 and the Mi9T Pro for the official Global version. Other closest alternative would be the 256GB Oneplus 7, at a bit higher price, but not official set. Then, there are non official set of 128GB version of ASUS ROG Phone 2, Oneplus 7T, or the official Realme X2 Pro.
AnoM, 18 Apr 2020I want to know is this phone global version just stuck at Android 9.0 until today?
This is on... moreI already get my answer from official Lenovo and Motorola online store. Indeed the Global version currently only get Android 9.0. for the moment.
I think no major concern regarding this as most apps still working seemlessly on Android 9.0, unless most apps already make mandatory to only support Android 10.
The Micro SD slot is the only thing I consider to be a gem at this price point.
I would either goes with the official unit, or get the imported China ROM unit.
I think the major different on China ROM is some bank apps and localized apps that rely on GMS framework cannot work properly.
Both unit are tempting option. I really hope the Global Version get Android 10 update.
Tengku Ahmad, 18 Apr 2020What different between UFS and eMMSUFS and eMMC are storage technology.
The most obvious difference between the 2 is of course the read and write speed.
UFS is the newer and faster storage, thus on apps loading, installation, file transfer, all are 2 to 3 times faster than eMMC 5.1. However, the storage speed itself doesn't just the only factor about phone performance. The RAM speed, processor speed also makes major impact, then the software optimization on performance. I think unless you are playing heavy games, transfer huge image and video files, you won't see much impact on day to day usage. It is, however, eMMC 5.1 is much faster than 4G/4G+ speed, if you only do the download/upload via internet. Then about the streaming speed, there is no concern at all as all the streaming content is loaded to RAM only.
All in all, as proven by the benchmark test, it doesn't affect on overall performance, you will only feel the slowness if you are transferring large media files.

This is one of the cheapest SD855 smartphone sell at my country.
I no need NFC and wireless charging as this is pretty useless at my country.
I appreciate this phone still pack 3.5mm jack, Micro SD slot, and 4000mah battery, true OIS camera.

i am having a problem with this phone about SD CARD i cant move files to sd card...i have a global rom and out of the box version...
Hello, please is it true that whatsapp notification is delayed or not showing on the device? i wanna buy the phone coz of its cheap price but i heard the global rom has many bugs...now i am confused
According to Lenovo's own support pages, this will never be updated beyond Android 9 (presumably for the Global ROM as the Chinese ROM already has Android 10):
(scroll to the very bottom of the smartphones table)
Wait wait its has OIS with SD 855 & SD Card & Headphone Jack
With this price I think Lenovo is the Best
& they deserve my Respect
Does this phone still a good buy?
It has been price drop to a low midrange price, which I only see this phone lacking NFC function, which doesn't benefit much at my country region.
This phone even comes with Micro SD slot that I really like.

Pretty much like various flavors of SSDs show real differences but in daily use those aren't going to be apparent. Phones are highly integrated designs with a balance between performance and power efficiency being battery dependent so there are those considerations as well. Benchmarks use a mix of software to get averaged performance. Is there a specific app that you are trying to get max performance out of? That would tax memory bandwidth?
