You probably don't know the name of this company yet, ZUK, a Chinese manufacturer that actually derives from the best known Lenovo. To make space among the most famous brands, however, the ZUK took little, in fact a few months ago the excellent was launched on the market ZUK Z1, a smartphone with excellent potential but with a very competitive price, which from today (and for a few days yet) can be purchased at a very low price:
163 150 Euro rather than 300! [12 / 10 / 16 - coupon and price updated at the end of the article]
Before leaving the discount code, let's see a little Pro and Cons of this ZUK Z1, which - to give us an idea immediately - we can compare to the excellent OnePlus One.
The features are in fact very similar, both have the same Chipset, same CPU and GPU, or a Snapdragon 801 with Quad Core CPU @2.5GHz and GPU Adreno 330. The memory is not expandable but it will not be a problem thanks to the 64 GB of internal memory, while the RAM is of 3 GB. Components more than good to run the custom ROM note Cyanogen OS 12.1 based on Android Lollipop 5.1. Moreover, thanks to this ROM, you will easily receive future updates; in fact, for ZUK Z1 is already available Cyanogen OS 13 based on Android 6 Marshmallow!
Even the display is similar to the well-known OPO, so we have a diagonal of 5.5 ″ on an IPS panel with a resolution of 1920 x 1080p and the same density of pixels, for a total of PPI 401. Similar cameras too, with the difference that ZUK Z1 is equipped with optical stabilizer: the external camera has an 13 MP sensor, equipped with dual LED flash and f / 2.2 aperture and records video up to a maximum of [Email protected]; the internal one is instead from 8 MP, with the same opening and records up to [Email protected]
Turning instead to the battery, and therefore to the autonomy, ZUK Z1 not only exceeds OnePlus One, but has the better of many devices of the same price range. With its battery (not removable) from 4100 mAh (with fast recharge) in fact manages to guarantee many more hours of use than it is able to make the competition. The large battery, however, affects the weight that reaches 175 grams, while the dimensions remain on the average considering the diagonal of the display: 155.7 x 77.3 x 8.9 mm.
Finally Lenovo ZUK Z1 it is equipped with BT 4.1, WiFi 802.11 a / b / g / n / ac dual band, GPS, A-GPS, GLONASS, fingerprint reader, RGB notification LED, various sensors and supports two SIM both nano, dual stand-by and 4G. Missing instead NFC and (only sore point) unfortunately the band 800 MHz, therefore you will not be able to use the 4G network if you have a Wind or Tim contract; no problem of course for Vodafone nor for the use of 3G networks.
