Mika, 23 Jun 2017i think there is a lot of people out there saying the phone is great " only one the paper". H... moreYes. Me too have same opinion. Now this is available for around 10k which makes the phone unbeatable.
I am looking through the comments and i am still not sure if it is good or bad phone ?
As i read somewhere...It is Android with some other OS or what ?
And i would like to know..How is the audio ? Is it loud or it is quite ?
To which phone you can compare this one with the audio and maybe camera ?
Back and front cameras on paper are good but how good are they actually ?
i think there is a lot of people out there saying the phone is great " only one the paper".
Here's the bias-free opinion of a guy who bought the phone 1 year ago:
-Fast. No need for more, it compares to the fatest devices on the market, and unless you're a round-the-clock gamer, you wouldn't feel a difference. I didn't when i tried on-display S galaxy S7. Smooth also. Software can also overclock (it's stable) the snapdragon 820 for more power, but it tends to heat the phone a bit.
-Screen is a masterpiece. And next to the average auto luminosity, the zui's one works well
-Fingerprint is soooooo fast. and never any problems with it if dry. if your hand is slightly wet then 90% times accurate, if soaked, then it doesn't work. You want this!!!!
-Camera works fine, but don't expect too much of it. Pics are great in bright day, but the camera struggle in the dark. Lot of options if you need them. about the 960FPS shooting...well, in fact the camera shoot 120FPS/720p at max (quite well already) and the rest is achieved through software (interpolation).
-Speakers are not as good as i'd want: in one word, average.
-connectivity is fine and works as it should even if i use it in France. Just check the 4G bands to be safe (800Mhz band IS accepted).
-the phone is strong enough to not have a scratch (i use a case and screen protect) when i have already broken a screen protect and a case from everyday use
-charger plug is not an EU plug, the provided adaptator is shitty, if you live in EU you'll need another one.
Software: (the bad- no, not bad, but less good- part)
-It's hard to change from ZUI to another OS, and you wouldn't do it, since it creates more problems that it solves.
-English or chinese ROM, maybe more languages in the future.... still the defaults apps will be in chinese. but these are copies of the common Gapps, so you don't need them...except those cases there is no chinese lost in the phone anywhere else.
-ZUI is quite ok for an OS, yes, even if it's no "pure" Android. there are minor issues, but it doesn't change anything about your everyday use, and i can count all the known issues on one hand.You'll get used to it in no time.
-Once every three month, i'm like: oh no my god! is there a lag/bug/issue??? but in fact there isn't (the biggest problem was solved by locking-unlocking the phone once)
To conlcude the phone is great for its value, but also awesome: when your (Iphone 6) friend will ask you how great is your phone, you can answer as great as yours, if not greater, but cheaper!!
Lenovo doesn't focus to their smartphone anymore, cz actually they'd already acquisition Moto.

planning to buy z2 plus but heard lot of problems with the set then i read your post ,found encouraging. can you tell how to flash rom in xda form.
Babu, 06 Jun 2017Can anyone​ help me.I am not getting notifications untill I open the the app and ano... moreThe background data usage might be turned of for that particular app. So try to remove that and I hope that would fix the problem
my phone back light is not turning off automatically even after setting of 15 seconds done by me
what to do , can anybody help me out
Just use for a few days as replacement for my aging S920
Global stock rom. Z2 4gb ram 64 gb rom. Connection over wifi + sim 1.
Overall, its a good phone with good price for an SD820. Bit different for UI, especially with only single button, but if you get use to it, actually quite fun.
Led flash not as bright as my s920. Camera does still lack here and there, but enough for me. Video recording inlcude HFR 960 frame/sec will help me a lot.
Heat problem? I think still acceptable, but it won't charge when phone is hot. 10% to 82% in 70 mnts. No gallery, must instal local phonebook account if not using google sinc, camera sett very limited.
Recommended phone for budget -performance.
Quite tricky at first, but i'll get use to it.
yeshvant, 08 Jun 2017I recently updated this phone to nougat and phone is much better. i guess there won't be furth... moreYeah, root doesn't apply to version, it correlates with the phone itself. There are a few good ROMs out for it and a couple devs on XDA are currently pushing out unofficial updates to LineageOS.
The phone is good in all aspects, both in paper and also in usage. I was hearing a lot of complaints about the camera but its not that poor, its ok. The SD820 with 4GB RAM is more than enough for daily usage. I am using it for the couple of months and guys its awesome. The main thing I loved about the device is the screen, size 5 inches and the responsiveness of the device. My last phone was Samsung Galaxy s5 and I am glad that I switched to this phone. No lag at all, simply a smooth experience.
I recently updated this phone to nougat and phone is much better. i guess there won't be further updates so is it possible to root this device after getting update?

Can't receive files via bluetooth(can send and play via bluetooth!) and gps takes almost 30sec to optimize location!
Other than that this rom is far better than stock in every aspect!
