Using this from a month now .. This is one of the best device i have ever used.. Lol its 100 times better than xiaomi note 3 trollers

s007, 11 May 2016Maybe SD650 outperforms 801 in benchmarks and all. But the most important thing GPU of 650 is ... moreThere are some minor lags only due to the fact that sd650 is a new CPU and the adreno 510 is a new GPU so it will take time for devs to optimise the games for the same.....adreno 510 is just a lil bit slower as compared to the adreno 418.....while the sd801has adreno 330.....sd650 may easliy hit the shit out of sd801.......in no time from now sd801 wipl stop getting support from devs..
Harshvardhan, 11 May 2016from which country they are dumping this model in india...???From China... the exact same model was launched there last year. And right now in China, the Zuk 2 has been launched.
Well this is a solid smartphone for people with a limited budget
First of all cyanogen OS is painfully slow with updates.9 months old and still no marshmallow.No problem for normal user but MIUI is constantly updated with new stuff frequently.
The problem most heavy users face in android is device memory full.So a round of applause for including 64GB internal storage and 3GB ram is plenty for any phone to work flawlessly.And camera is good for the price though.Fingerprint scanner and design is also good.
it all comes down to preferences.If you want a good phone to play games and and store a lot of media(which i do but im at the high end of the spectrum ie iPhones Galaxies Nexus Xperia etc) you should consider Zuk z1 if you like sotware updates and a UI with lot of functions go for Xiaomi phone(if you are on a budget that is)
Companies shouldn't get away with dumping old and/or unsold stock from other markets in India.... absolutely hate it.
people are waiting when Z2 pro will launched, and here we got the news.. Z1 hit India..

But the most important thing GPU of 650 is weaker compared to 801. I own Oneplus One and Redmi Note 3 and from my observations, Games like NOVA3, Asphalt 8 and MC3 all lag a bit in Redmi Note 3(SD650 3GB ram). Oneplus One plays every game thrown at it with ease. 801 still rocks.
1. It has Quad core whereas Redme note 3 has hexa core and Oppo f1 has octa core cpu,
2. No Radio.
Is the handset supports VoLTE? i.e. Voice Over LTE which is available in Redme note 3, Gionee s6 and Oppo F1 selfe and Plus.

SD650 can keep up with and outperform even SD808. So yeah. There is that.
The one thing Lenovo has which is better is camera. Everything else, Redmi Note 3 pretty much an upgrade over Z1.
Could buy Redmi Note 3 (32GB) on flash-sale after a lot of embarrassments.
Denied to take delivery when I saw Zuk Z1 specifications.
Shall definitely wait for few more days for following caomparisions,
1. Better camera quality
2. SD650 Vs SD801 processor
3. 32 Vs 64GB ROM
4. No third party bloatware (its great to use full RAM capacity)
5. Warranty and Service Center issues
6. Syska Insurance coverage
7. Price difference only 1500/- Rs.
I think all above issues are really very important when buying a phone that will be in my hand for at least 1.5 to 2 years.
Henry, 10 May 2016I am using this Z1 for 4 months. Cyanogen version. Not ZUI. Plz don't compare it with Redmi ... moreMost of what you said is correct, except for the fact that SD 650 is indeed faster than SD 801 both on CPU and GPU power.
No Fan Boy...!, 10 May 2016It's good but Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 is 3times more powerful than this phone and is also priced l... moreSD 650 is 3 times faster than SD 801???? Only in your dreams. It is about 30% faster in both CPU and GPU. But again, Redmi note 3 is not available easily, whereas Zuk Z1 is available for purchase whenever you want. Makes a lot of difference, isn't it?
It also looks as though Xioami is throwing biscuits at the dogs barking for largesse. I don't want to go anywhere near such an OEM who treats customers like that.

The 16 MP cam in note 3 is not even near to Asus zenfone 2's 13 MP cam. Yeah. they just bumped up the MP and put a sub standard sensor in it. People only look at the MP.
ZUK Z1 cam is just great. OIS works perfectly..
And coming to the soc, new guys don't know the power of SD800 & 801 . Real performance of 801 can only be beaten by 808. Don't think 650 can beat it!
And my 32 GB memory is so fast that makes file sharing and app loading rocket fast. U guys will not believe until u use one . I bought it for much higher price. I think it's a very good offer now in India.
People looking for a new device, I recommend it.
64GB storage,dual sim 4g,13 mp camera with osi and Cyanogen OS 12.1 i think we have a winner.
Better than Redmi Note 3.
MI is just cheap Chinese company dumping low grade models in India.
Lenovo is well known brand and Zuk z1 is having better quality camera , double storage 64 GB instead of just 32 gb of redmi note 3. Real fast charge, unlike redmi note 3.
Its better to buy Lenovo zuk z1 instead of redmi note 3
