Okay, we gave Lenovo some knocks a while ago for over-hyping the Z5 and delivering to us a smartphone that really wasn’t up to the picture they painted and the lofty claims made. That won’t make us lose sight of the fact that the Lenovo Z5 isn’t in anyway a bad device. Well, that is if you don’t mind yet another notch display-packing phone. The device ticks most of the boxes to be crowned as a premium midranger even though some still argue it is a flagship model.
The device comes with a design that we are not going to bore you comparing with the one featured on the pre-launch teasers. The design is sleek, with one of the variants having the Aurora gradient back which we have only seen on flagship models like the Huawei P20 Pro.
The Lenovo Z5 comes with a 6.2-inch full-screen display with 19:9 aspect ratio and FHD+ resolution of 2240 x 1080p. The display is covered with a 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass. The screen as a 90% screen-to-body ratio which is pretty impressive. At the rear, we find a glass back with a vertically arranged dual camera setup on the left and a fingerprint sensor at the centre. The dual camera is a powerful setup with AI technology and the camera samples testify to that.
The disappointment of not having a design that redefines bezel-less phones is eroded when we look at the prices it is pegged at. Pricing starts from 1299 Yuan ($202) for the 6GB + 64GB version and goes up to 1799 Yuan ($281) for the 6GB + 128GB edition. Thi is definitely an amazing one for such a device. Unfortunately, it is uncertain if Lenovo will sell the model outside China. Check out the pictures and camera samples of the Z5 on the image gallery below.
