NOTE: New code: Use "zukz2new" to get it for ~£137 if you missed the xmas code (fluctuates with currency exchange rates). Now they also have the black one in stock for ~£145.:D

Just went back in stock (only white is available), I purchased one myself a week and a half back and Banggood live chat support just told me that it would be shipped within 24H. Cracking price as it was hot at over £200 about 3 months back.

By most accounts there might be some fiddling with the software to remove the vendor ROM it will come with but a Snapdragon 820 device with a large battery and in a smaller (5-inch) form factor for under £140 is a difficult deal to beat.

A few cons of this device, it's lacking NFC, IR Blaster, and 4G band 20 (800MHz) so it might not benefit from full speed 4G depending on where you are and who your provider is - EE doesn't use Band 20 at all, the others do to a varying extent. Whether or not that's a deal breaker is up to each to figure out.

EDIT: Looks like EE might no longer be the last bastion for non band 20 devices. Do note that the 800MHz signal is a bit slower than the other 4G bands so you might not miss on much, but if it's the only one you get in your area it might hurt. There have been reports of people living happily without band 20, but it's very much dependent on circumstances. It looks like a good phone albeit a bit of a gamble.

Much has been said about this phone already, please check the previous threads: http://www.hotukdeals.com/search?action=search&keywords=Lenovo+ZUK+Z2

I'll leave you with some specs & pros/cons I shamelessly stole from Ulti: http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/lenovo-zuk-z2-5-0-fullhd-1080p-snapdragon-820-4gb-ram-64gb-storage-4g-lte-white-2503278

Specs:

CPU: Snapdragon 820 2.15Ghz (Not the underclocked version like the Xiaomi Mi5)

RAM: 4GB LPDDR4

Storage: 64GB eMMC 5.1

Main Camera: Samsung 13 MP ISOCELL, f/2.2, phase detection autofocus, 1/2.6" sensor size, 1.34 µm pixel size with 4K video @ 30 fps

Front Camera: 8 MP, f/2.0, 1.4 µm pixel size, 1080p

UI: Android Marshmallow v6.0.1 skinned with ZUI 2.0

Screen: 5.0" FullHD 1080p LTPS IPS LCD (441 PPI)

SIM: Dual Nano SIM

4G support: Bands 1, 3, 7, 8 (Three, EE, Vodafone Supported but no O2 4G support due to missing B20 band)

Bluetooth: 4.1

Dimensions: 141.7 x 68.9 x 8.5 mm

Weight: 149 g

Battery: 3500mAh with Quick Charge 3.0 (83% in 30 min)

Others: USB Type-C connector, Fingerprint sensor

Pros:

- Uses latest CPU and hardware is enough to match raw performance of current gen flagships (e.g. Samsung S7, LG G5, HTC 10, Xiaomi Mi5, OnePlus 3)

- Stupidly cheap price

- Lots of RAM and storage

- Fingerprint sensor

- Compact size

- USB Type-C connector

- Large battery with QC3.0

- Reviews seem to mention that GPS and WiFi are good

- Seems to be good dev support from the community

Cons:

- No MicroSD slot

- Design looks very boring in my opinion

- A little large and thick for a 5.0" phone with only 70.6% screen-to-body ratio (but I guess the large battery makes up for it)

- No B20 band (My Xiaomi Mi Note with no B20 band has better consistent performance than my OnePlus 3 with B20 though on Three!)

- Reviews mention average camera performance

- Reviews mention an average screen (not amazing colours nor bright)

- Storage could be faster (I believe all flagships use UFS2.0 storage now which is quite a bit faster than eMMC 5.1)

- Chinese only warranty through Banggood (1 Year) but it might cost you a pretty penny to send it back and lengthy process (fully anecdotal info)

6.9% cashback @ TCB

It's old & buggy! :)

Code working for anyone?
#8
Used this phone for 2 weeks. Indian Stock Rom which has a Nexus style look and feel. If you can live without NFC it's great. I'm with EE and this phone is lightning fast.

I've not encountered any bugs or issues myself.....

Did the phone come with Play store etc installed?

Did it ever go out if stock ? Been watching for the last week for the black one, and white has always been there. Either way top price

EE have used base 20 for years, to boost coverage in rural areas.

Heat added. Not only does it sound like a great price for the specs but the OP's pro/con list is very useful - saves a lot of hassle for everyone else.

Yes it did and it was also fairly stock Android in look and feel - ordered from Banggood as well. I just upgraded to the Indian Rom. I tried the Chinese Rom too but I prefer stock Android.
#15
Can't comment on phone but can comment on BangGood. Terrible customer service. If it goes wrong you pay return post and will only reimburse you if they agree there's a problem with your phone, your word against thiers.

There is more that I can't be arsed to go into so as with any China phone you pay your money and take your chance.
#16
Yep looks like code no longer works. Damn should have bought it last week rather than waiting for the black one :(
#17
This is a great price. I bought when it was £215 from EU warehouse and still felt it was great phone for the price. At this price it's a steal..
#18
No NFC? Such a shame
#19
The zuk edge is been released tomorrow which is expected to have great spec. Obviously it will be a fair bit more than this but might cause other retailers to drop their price a little

I just checked and it works for me, even lets me go to PayPal [1][2]

Are you sure that you're logged in? Also, I think that it didn't work for me it didn't work until I verified my email.

Edit: Yes, it was out of stock for a while, though they were still taking orders (smh). For reference, I placed my order on 8th December and it was only shipped out this morning 3AM. I got the code from a previous thread but wasn't sure whether they were actually going to fulfill the order but it's shipped out now. We'll see in 7-20 days :)

Indeed, no Android Pay, no deal.

It's FAR too handy to be able to leave the house without a wallet knowing I can get around with just my phone.

Cracking price; but it may be worth holding on for a price drop on the Leeco Le Pro 3 which does have IR zapper, NFC, B20 and slightly faster SoC (and bigger screen and battery), but only 32gb ROM, but is the faster UFS2.0.

Damn anyone else slightly wishing they waited? I paid £155 for mine(I'm waiting on £12 cashback which is stuck on confirmed, so there is that), received it last week, I suppose I still got a good deal and I genuinely needed to replace my old phone which was damaged and on it's last legs.

Prices fall the longer you wait, the bargain hunter in me is still thinking about £138 with cashback ontop though haha I guess we should all just be happy with a good deal, plus at least I got the colour I wanted(black) and who knows how long I'd have to wait to receive it if I ordered now with it being Christmas?

I paid £170 for mine and was happy with that price.
Just bought another one for £138 (and almost £10 cashback!) Bought a ZTE Nubia Z7 Max for the OH, but will give her the Z2 instead if the Nubia isn't up to scratch (arriving tomorrow).

Do you mean that model or the Leeco Le 2 Pro? The 2 Pro would be in the region of this with a price drop as it is around £170, but the Pro 3 seems quite a bit more expensive, it would take quite a price drop to fall into the same price range as this so you would probably be waiting a while.

I did mean the Pro 3, but I guess it be quite a while, possibly > 9 months? It seems only premium Chinese phones have NFC and use UFS2 ram. Maybe the mi5 will approach this price, now that would be a no brainer.

The price of Chinese phones doesn't follow our logic, often the absolute cheapest price you can get a phone is on pre-order and it actually becomes more expensive over time.
The phone will simply sell out and disappear, or remain listed at a high price even though it's 1 - 2 years old.

You can get CM14.1 and CM13 for this phone, tried both yesterday, CM14.1 has a few niggles but CM13 works great.

Just to note, despite the marketing claims, the phone doesn't actually support QC 3.0.

Why this should be the case isn't clear - perhaps they just haven't bothered to create software support for it? Not good that their marketing material claims it is supported, however. I understand that the Zuk Z2 Pro does currently support QC 3.0.

I've just started using my phone and it is a very well built device with a super fast fingerprint sensor. The 'U-touch' feature is very useful as well. I have to say that the ZUI version of Android is pretty craptastic, however. I'm on the most recent 2.3 Chinese release (Android 6.0) and I know that ZUI 2.5 (Android 7.0) is currently in testing though initial reports are that the interface is still pretty crummy.

Hopefully, once the stable ZUI 2.5 is released, we'll see a good Android 7.0 port (whether CM or Mokee or similar) which allows access to the useful Nougat features bizarrely ignored by ZUK when they cobbled together ZUI.

I come from a Huawei phone and their version of Android, EMUI, is a heck of a lot better than ZUI which is unnecessarily complex when attempting to access certain features of the interface. I've still not got my push notifications properly sorted out - need to jump through a few more hoops for that yet!
