I have been using this phone for last 3 months and I would say its great.The only point of concern may be camera which is average but other than that its an top notch phone in all other aspects.
For the cost you pay, you get the value for each penny paid.
This is a great phone, feel good in the hand, the fingerprint reader is really snappy and the screen is good! Cyanogenmod works fine and the battery life is very good (so far). The OnePlus Two feels slightly more high end, but is also more expensive. And as you're probably going to put a case anyway, it doesn't matter too much. In terms of speed, games run well and without hiccups.
I can really recommend this one, if you're looking for a high value phone at a low price.
Zuk, 04 Dec 2015Cm 12.1 has a lot of error!!!!where are you using this phone?
ive had this phone for 14 days, during them 14 days you get what you expect. its simply amazing for its price tag.
battery is great
camera is average
screen is amazing
handles heavy usage apps with ease
havnt experienced any lag yet
has nice extra settimgs for more customizable use
audio fx helps with the sound
fast charging + usb 3.0 is really good
personally had a major battery problem with random reboots and dropped it one from 1feet accidently, pretty much killed the phone, battery malfunctioned, went 50% to 1% in a second, then charging stopped too.
phone is really fragile, especially the plastic back, you can literally push into it to feel the inside.
camera doesnt perfom at 30fps with its stock camera, google camera does the job tho which is just a software problem i guess.
advice, i would definitely recommend this phone to almost anyone, however you seriously need a good case for this phone, not fpr the clumsy and safe ocd people like me need to be careful too, its just too fragile.but seriously is worth the money spent on it.
wish leonovo would use motorolas durability on this phone. considering they own motorola too
hope this was helpful (currently watching my zuk z1 die)
I am the winner of this cell phone which was announced on 22 OCT 2015 AND i was so happy that i was selected in giveaway. But INDIA CURROPT CUSTOMS forfeited my cell phone.
I am really appropriate to gsmarena.com and honorbuy.com because they committed their promise mean send the ZUK Z1 cell phone.
INDIA is a top most corrupt country in the world.
I got my ZUK Z1 about a week ago, it's a amazing device. My previous phone is a Samsung S5, and to be honest, the only thing i miss is the sd card slot, of course the 64gb is far more than i need but it's easy to handle a sd card.
I'm stuck with ZUI and i do not intend to change, it's pretty cool and i like it very much. The U-touch function it's really usefull.
I just tested the call quality, amazing sound volume, i'm quite satisfied! Fingerprint Scanner is the best i have ever tested, i'm completely impressed. Screen is amazing as well.
The only thing so far that bothers me is that it doesn't support my native language (portuguese), so when typing it will only give me suggestion for english words, what i'm doing is adding portuguese words on it xD
*There's a system update 1.2.040 avaliable but i haven't updated yet, system is perfect and i see no need for it lol
Dan, 28 Nov 2015Gearbest.com sales this from their EU warehousesthey dont have from eu warhouse
if you don't like ZUI OS, change it to cyanogen not cyanogenmod.
Cyanogen is close and paid version by phoe manufacturer.
Read and follow it exactly,
