Lenovo ZUK Edge Unboxing: Black is Beautiful

by Habeeb Onawole 5

ZUK officially released the ZUK Edge after weeks of teases and leaks. Although it doesn’t have a bezel-less display like the Xiaomi Mi MIX, the ZUK Edge holds the title of the phone with the highest screen-to-body ratio in the company’s lineup.

Sporting the same 5.5-inch display as the ZUK Z2 Pro and a thinner body than the ZUK Z2, the ZUK Edge comes with the new ZUI 2.5 OS based on Android Nougat. It also features a Snapdragon 821 processor and an under-glass fingerprint scanner.

Available in Titanium Black and Ceramic white, I’m sure most will agree that the black is the more beautiful one, as it does a great job in highlighting the high level of craftsmanship of the device.

The ZUK Edge has a 2.5D glass in front. Underneath it lies the fingerprint scanner. The 8MP front facing camera sits a few millimeters from the top right corner. In the top part of the phone is the speaker grille which surprisingly doesn’t take up the whole length but just the right half.

The back has a simple design. All you have is a single camera followed by the LED flash and heart rate sensor and the ZUK branding close to the bottom. The ZUK Edge has its audio jack and main speaker at the bottom. You should get great sounds from it due to the built-in Dirac HD Sound which enhances the quality of the HiFi audio. The USB Type-C 3.1 port sits in the middle and the primary microphone flanks it on the left. The top is bare save for the noise cancelling microphone and antenna lines.

On the right hand side is the volume rocker and power button which are considerably thin. The left side houses the SIM tray which supports dual-nano SIM cards. It’s nt a hybrid slot so you can’t use a SD card. ZUK ships the phone with a pretty small charging adapter and a flat wire cable. You also get a SIM ejector tool and some paper work.

    Nice phone. Z2 Pro has a 5.2 Amoled screen, so not the same here. Too bas the battery is only 3100. The 13mp camera is nice but 2.2 aperture is so so.

  • Rick

    The front home button – is it capable of a press action? Or touch only? I like the Z2/Pro button which has different action for press, tap and long hold.

    • Joe

      It’s touch. The button comes with multiple gesture support and you can customize the functions as well.

    definitely their best looking phone release to date

  • It looks pretty edgy I guess, although without a sloping curvature in the glass it’s an Edge in name only, which might not give it an edge compared to other phones with real curved edges.
