This phone is intended exclusively for the Chinese and Indian markets. Its is the best value specification phone you can buy, but it requires a bit of reading and setting up before you can enjoy it.
If you buy from China (only option available as Indian Zuk Z2 have sold out) then you should Flash the Stock Indian ZUI Rom for it to begin behaving like a conventional Android Phone (Google Play and google services pre installed). A little bit of googling and watching a 10min video and its childs play .
The other thing you need to be aware of the ZUI layer on top of the Android version is pull based not push based, certain notifications which should appear automatically e.g. whats app, even the alarm clock etc need configuring in the settings (Or have the app on in the background) this is again a quirk of the Chinese market with limited data plans (Preserves data until you decide to open apps).
So unless you have an inquisitive mind and like to understand your phone to the nth degree then this isnt the phone for you (its not Plug and play).

Which phone should i buy z2 plus,g5 plus or zenfone 3 max 5.5.
Excellent phone! Bought mine from banggood for 254 NZD and have had it around a month at time of writing but it's the snappiest android handset I've ever owned. Only real issue is that the stock ZUI rom has some really bad memory management issues and notification problems so I highly recommend flashing a custom rom as soon as you get the phone. Once you've done that though it's hard to find any major flaws with the phone! It's a snapdragon 820 phone for a cheap price and it does what it says on the tin.
Sure you do sacrifice some of the sleeker looks of higher priced handsets in exchange for a thicker phone made primarily out of glass (slippery glass may I add so buy a case for the phone asap if you get one) but I don't mind the thicker build and honestly I think it feels nicer in the hand because of it.
Overall if you're looking for a solid, smooth and stable android phone but you're on a tight budget then the Zuk Z2 is the perfect phone for you and really stands out for the competition in its price range. Highly recommended
