    Personally, I would prefer the XShot on photos based on what you have shown in the comparison. Photos from the XShot are more natural!

  • Anderson Casotti

    Galaxy note 3 is still the champion to me, I don’t buy phones with non removable battery.
    too bad, I had high hopes on this one but for some reason I really cannot understand, only Samsung can/want to do this (remov. battery).

  • iko

    based on the photos shown, it looks like the xshot has a sharper image on daylight/bright light shots, conversely the Z2 pro seems to lead on night/dark shots.

  • Sameer .

    good review, but are there any heating issues on this handset, had a bad experience with the lenovo k900,

    • Frank Tu

      k900 is totally different with k920, k900 is a immature product that applied Intel’s SOC, no flagship will apply that SOC at that time…, and now, Lenovo made a real flagship that screen-to-body size ratio sits at 83.5%(top of the world).

  • Peter

    Great review.. I have just bought one K920 in China today where i work now and then. My question is if any firmware are available yet. I wold like to have Google Play installed

  • Nay Ton

    There is already some ROM with android lollipop for Lenovo Vibe Z pro k920?
