Lenovo ZUK Z2 Now Up For 1,149 Yuan ($169)- Cheapest SD 820 Phone?

by Jed John 17

The Lenovo ZUK Z2 was launched about five months back with a price tag that made the phone to become reputed as one of the cheapest Snapdragon 820-powered device, going for as low as 1799 Yuan for the 4GB RAM version. Recently, a white-only 3GB RAM version of the ZUK Z2 was released, dubbed ZUK Z2 Rio Edition apparently because of the Rio 2016 Olympic themed wallpapers inside. The 3GB RAM version started at 1599 Yuan ($240) and was even touted as the cheapest Snapdragon 820 smartphone ever. The price was later reduced to 1299 Yuan ($191).

That acclaimed cheap price has even gone further lower, as the Lenovo ZUK Z2 has now seen another price slash. Right now, the 3GB + 32GB version is now offered on Lenovo’s official website for 1149 Yuan ($169) with coupon. That is a huge 450 Yuan drop for a flagship device. This new price tag is even lower than the price tag of its predecessor, the ZUK Z1 which is being offered recently on Everbuying for $173.99.

    Okay, I hope this is true cause I’m gonna buy as soon as today.

    • YES! These sites are very sketchy, and it feels weird to trust such sites.
      I tried buying one of these when it released for around $220, but I couldn’t get past the shipping options, and sellers kept asking me to make payment. I don’t recommend it at all.

        I posted my horrible experience in banggood just last week, so I’m really skeptical to do another order in this store. $180 is so good for a phone with SD820 chip, but I think banggood doesn’t have stocks of this like my experience in Redmi Pro. They can accept payment very quick but they refund very slow, I don’t want to experience that again.

        • I already ordered it for $210 around 10 days back, and by mistake I chose the white version which shipped instantly. Gonna use back covers anyways, so it’s not that big of a setback.

          I checked on BangGood and the total was still coming to ~$213 because of PayPal transaction fees. Never safe to pay there without PayPal, either that, or you have to have a Visa card, MasterCard has issues with Chinese eCommerce sites.

          And yes, the main issue I had with BangGood was the refund process, and it became even worse because of MasterCard, as they take an additional month to verify the refund too. All of this translates to me not having my money for around a good two months.

          BTW, are you gonna try GearBest again today? A little over 30 minutes left, lol.

          • Saku

            Yeah, last try before I buy the Zuk Z2 from Banggood. The deal is too good to miss.

            Btw, where did you buy your Zuk? Banggood?

          • I got it from AliExpress, FingerZone Technology was the reseller.
            The advantage was instant shipping and not needing PayPal at all.

          • Saku

            I see. I’m going to avail Zuk Z2 from banggood this time. I’m gonna give them a chance for redemption, lol. I also feel a little bit adventurous, so I might as well try buying from other stores. Hope it goes well, though.

            I also ordered from fingerzone for 225$ 20 days back. still not delivered though. How many days took for yours??

          • WHOA. Probably some post issues for you, mate.
            I ordered on the 24th, didn’t even mean to… because all my orders were getting reverted thanks to their compatibility issues with MasterCard.
            Mine’s been received by the post in my country already last night, gotta see when they actually deliver it… which takes 2-3 days more.
