To buy this phone is totally waste of money. I bought this phone last year in may. After 4 monthes i inserted jio sim and it started to behave abnormally like switched off/on, sim disconnecting, hanging etc. Then after 10 monthes, it suddenly went on aeroplane mode, i rebooted it and it got ok but next day it went again on aeroplane mode and this time for permanently. I visited its three different service centre but none of them consider my phone in warranty, and told me the reason of issue is...liquid, load on phone etc.
Then i searched the solution on fb, youtube, google....i found so many people with the same issue with this phone, and same experience with its service. Now i reached on the conclusion that....this lenovo company and its product and service are so pathetic. They are nothing but looting the people. Customers are looking for caring but they dont mean to them. Worst experience with lenovo on my very first time of its product and its service.
Hello guys i am ramdev i purchase lenovo zuk z1 in oct 2016 after few days i am facing some problems but i ignore and after 4 month a major network problem arise due to which aeroplane mode active every time since February i have given my phone to care three times but their executives doesn't able to solve the problem and if company doesn't have any solution of this problem every time they change motherboard.
So i request you guys please don't buy lenovo's product any more because they doesn't provide good services they don't know value of our money (fully waste of money).
Whenever i watch my phone i want to throw it in gutter but then i remember that i buy it with my first salary so i can't.

No doubt.. Its very good phone... But the thing is.. It needs only one amd last update in order to fix. Bugs
Fringerprint is not working anymore now... Its not scanning my finger. As if the home button does not support fingerprint scanning anymore.. Worstest phone ever.. Please inform if there is some option to fix this scanning issue.
Though screen & camera is good, it has irritating software issues. Mine started telling ' trebuchet not working' & phone testats automatically when most required.

Guys , Never buy lenovo phones. Its a cheap Chinese crab, Zuk z1 is also a worst phone I have . having front can issue. Finger print not working after few months. Service center experience was also not satisfactory. Due a minor dent , on corner, not on screen and touch. They void my warranty.
Plz guys don't waste ur money and time . worthless phones ever I used.

syed raj, 21 Feb 2017Whether Lenovo zuk z1 is enable volte or notNo
I hv been using this mobile for a year... Excellent performance.. But i dont like its signal strength.. Its weak
Hii guys pleasevhelp how to root zuk z1
I try every rooting aapp even PC BT z1 not root
Lineage 14.1 on Zuk Z1
Automatic adaptive display works
No bootloop or lagging issues on my experience.
Over-all Nougat Software is in full effect.
Hi Guys! Been using this phone for almost a year.
1. Working good for the first 8 months with Cyanogen12.1
2. Last few months, noted overheating patterns and lagging and restarting issues.
3. However, performance and battery life was still good.
I guess the overheating and restarting problems are due to software issues.
So, what I did was look for many reviews and research for Good zuk z1 roms.
At first was like, I should update only to Official ZuK software. But boo, poor software support. So why should I wait for nothing?
Finally, I am so happy with my research. It worked for me! All the hard efforts were paid. I have the latest software with minimal tolerable bugs!
Maybe this can help you and appreciate this phone again:
1. Unlock your bootloader. (This requires a lot of patience to work)(videos in youtube helps: use keywords:unlock bootloader zuk z1)
2. Install custom recovery with TWRP
3. Root your phone. With super su
4. Download CM13(marshmallow official)-CM14(nougat 7.0 official)-Lineage14.1(nougat 7.1.1 by ordenkriegger) roms. Download them all for they are incremental updates and you cannot directly install nougat from lollipop.
5. Download Gapps ( download each for marshmallow, nougat 7.0 and 7.1)
6. Then were all set.
7. Go to developer options and allow advanced reboot-> recovery
8. Do a wipe first, then follow this installation pattern:
Flash with cm13 first then gapps for marshmallow then reboot.
Go to advanced reboot-> recovery
Do a wipe-> flash cm 14->gapps for nougat then reboot
Advanced reboot-> recovery
Do a wipe-> flash lineage 14.1-> gapps for 7.1.1 then reboot
You have the latest firmware for lenovo zuk z1!
Fingerprint sensor is working properly
Camera support and 4k video support is very good.
No Volte as the official ordenkriegger page said.
So far, restarting issues were not present on my experience.
Fast and split screen support
Increased antutu scores
So far, some minimal issues with stock brower which lags but may be overcome by downloading google chrome. And use chrome as default browser.
The unlocking of bootloader itself is a pain in the ass. I was stuck here for almost a day. Just do your reading and research. Everything will go well.
So now, I'm happy again with my Zuk Z1. I' m like having a new phone again!
Just be patient.
I am John Wickk.
