In my opinion, the spec' is better - enough to position ZUK brand away from lenovo. CM 12 out of the box (with future support) bigger battery (number 10 on the endurance list as of 30th oct 2015), type C reversible usb, fingerprint sensor. Good start - watch out one plus.
Those living in middle east can buy LG G3 Dual sim for same price. And LG G3 is far better than this phone. LG G3 is a quality product unlike zuk.
I have previously insisted on mSD chip becoz 64G was so costly, BUT with 64G at this price AND with the fast USB3 socket for infrequent data movement, I am now willing to live without a removable chip!!!

It does become hot after I played games like COC or voice call(Wechat) or via my internet data plan. Using Waze while charging also getting a bit hot but that is almost same as every device i have encountered.
55% more expensive but do less? Under heavy usage P70A last almost the same time as this unit, normal usage P70A did last half day longer. However, in terms of extra features, clearer screen and silkiness/speed of the phone operation, I couldn't imagine what is the "less" you are talking about except battery duration.

Actually right, not fair to compare a device that's 55% more expensive but can do lesser
The only phone comparing to mine is ZUK 1. Which is mine S860 and the battery is almost the same as ZUK 1 that is 4100mAh. The only I recomended is Lenovo based in its quality and performance. But this is the killer 3GB ram on the go makes me sweat.

Here's the link for your reference,
However, I reckon in real world both should more or less the same.

Also it's not fair to compare for battery durability between P70A and Z1, different processors and RAM. Even the display size and pixel density is not the same.
Hi I was recently stumbled on this phone and from what the company is saying about the phone it sounds great, but I would like someone to do a comparison of this phone to something I'm familiar with like an iPhone or a Samsung.

That's it, I'm giving up on this ZUK Z1, switching back to my old faithful P70A. The heating problem ( u can suffer first degree burns if u put inside your pocket), the default contact app faulty (had to install a third party app just to see contacts and yet editing is still a problem), website kept diverting to advertising sites ( built in tracking app, I suspect), battery life sucks even though it's supposed to be 4100 mah, can't match P70a even halfway. Only improvement is better picture but default album also very substandard. I think it's a mistake Lenovo associated themselves to this ZUK
