Well does it support Ota?

Yeah may be something running that's draining the battery but it somewhat defeats the point of having a smartphone if you can't use it to receive stuff like emails promptly, which requires it to check in the background regularly. Anyway I'm going to flash a custom ROM, so I'll see if that improves things.

I wouldn't recommend this phone. I bought the non-pro 4GB/64GB ZUK Z2 and …I wouldn't recommend this phone. I bought the non-pro 4GB/64GB ZUK Z2 and even with less hardware to power and a bigger 3500mAh battery I can't get through a day without charging. I'm not even playing games just spending a few hours a day browsing social media, hotukdeals, email, etc. The Z2 pro only has a 3100mAh battery so it'll be even worse. I've bought a Redmi Note 4 with a 4100mAh battery now and will give the Z2 to my Mum as she won't use it so much.

May be something wrong with your phone (Zuk Z2). This is one of the best phones since my iPhone 4 (paid £500 back in the days) and to me the king of the budget phones.

Battery life is 2 days with screen time of 4-5 hrs. Infact in 2nd day and still have 12%. Make sure you don't have email killing your battery in the background.

As others have said, if faulty your on your own. I have been looking to buy another zuk Z2 but prices have gone up to £180 or so!
Voted hot - but personally I always try to buy from a UK retailer for peace of mind. Best I can find at the moment for similar spec is the P10 Lite. Was posted on here for a deal where you could get it for £139 at Carphone Warehouse.

The Zuk version of Android is so bad it's unreal .eg notifications missing, no badge count on icons for notifications, alarm doesn't even work, white listing apps so they run in the background so you don't miss notifications, icons on home page randomly moving to new other screens. Honestly this is the worse phone I have ever owned. But the geeks on here will reeling specs and flashing various obscure roms but even they know deep down they are over compensating for a poor overall experience

I disagree. Fantastic phone. Best I've bought. I've had it only 9 months or so. To be honest you probably got a bugged one if things are moving...! I agree zui implementation is poor. I've used the official indian ROM and whilst it's updated to android 7, I'm still on 6 as the stability is rock solid.

Specs are fantastic but again I agree with you specs mean diddly squat if you don't have smooth performance.

Yep, solves any niggling little issues with the stock ROM.



Is the RRemix rom rooted? I'm happy flashing a custom rom but I don't want anything rooted. I've no deisre to have to mess about with Magisck and the like to get Pokemon and banking apps working.

Bought two of these on 4 September from Banggood, arrived nicely packed on 14 September, so 10 days for delivery. Switched on, its nice and fast, the front screen is just like using my Samsung. Very easy to set up and the Health App is on there.

There are less apps on it, but its up to the individual to customise it as they seem fit. Up to now am very pleased, as I thought cases would be here first. Oh and it comes with a screen protector already on.

Used Quidco to get cashback as well. Tried the camera and its very slick and takes nice pictures too. Only downside is it came with flat pin plug so will need an adapter at £6 from the bay. Also its on Android 6, but no biggie as it runs really smooth

The phone performs better than my OnePlus 3.https://forum.xda-developers.com/zuk-z2-pro/development/rom-resurrection-remix-5-8-2-t3628793

I want a cheapish phone with a good camera. I was going for the honor 6x … I want a cheapish phone with a good camera. I was going for the honor 6x as I liked the dual rear camera, but the spec on this is tempting me. Camera seems to be poor but price is low for what you get.Not sure honor 6x or this?



If camera is what you're after, the 6x seems to be a good contender, but bear in mind that it's a good £90 more expensive than the ZUK, might be worth it, might not be. But if you're willing to take it to 5.5inch screen size and £200+, it's hard to argue with the Moto G4 Plus. There's even codes floating around on HUKD to get a personalised 4GB/64GB one for ~£250. And at that price range it's even more difficult to argue with the mi5/5s.

I've been living with the Z2 for about 3 weeks now and it's a rock solid phone, cannot fault it at all. I didn't like ZUI all too much but that's a personal preference and even if I did I would have still messed around with it because I've been changing ROMs every 2 weeks for ages now.

I quite like the design, it's heavy and thick but it feels sturdy and actually quite pleasant in the hand irrespective of being quite square-y. I personally think 5.5-inch is too big - 5-inch is a better size for me.

The phone's camera is... okay. I've probably taken no more than 20 pictures in this time and the quality is acceptable, even in low light. It's better than my previous phone (Nexus 5), but that doesn't mean much, I've seen much better. I'm an amateur photographer and I generally have my DSLR in the car ready to go so I don't feel like an amazing camera is high on the list of features I require.

But I'll say this: this phone is totally overkill for me, to the point where I regret buying it a little bit. Maybe I'll change in the future, maybe apps will require more processing power, more RAM, but for now I'm using ~ 2GB RAM at most times, don't think I've ever gone above 3GB RAM usage, with the CPU not even busting a sweat.

Let me elaborate. Best analogy I can think of is regretting buying a Mustang because it's too powerful and I'm never going to be using it at full power. I should have bought something like a Fiesta ST, a pocket rocket. In the world of car enthusiasts there's this saying: it's more fun to drive a slow car fast than a fast car slow.

Not sure what the smartphone equivalent of a Fiesta ST is, maybe the Redmi 4 Prime with its 4 day battery, the Nokia 6 is exciting but difficult to get hold of.

My point is, performance is just numbers on a paper, you'll probably be fine with an underpowered phone, dual cameras are a gimmick. Could we have a 2 year old flagship sensor and lenses on a budget/mid-range phone? Please?

I'm still using the original plastic protector that came with the phone, it's been almost 2 weeks. It's pretty decent I think, but I've already bought a tempered glass protector that is going on... at some point

My box had 2 white tapes on it sealed but not sure if they have been added after they have installed a different software.It seems it has installed the indian rom already which is 2.0.093 ST 1 aug 2016 security patch. Not sure if they have installed it as it can't come with it installed in a sealed box. It has play services too. Confused lol, not sure if I should install the indian rom a fresh to make sure its right.EDITIt turned out to be a modified rom so I have flashed the real indian rom now


Hi , I am familiar with flashing xiaomi.eu roms , but know nothing about lenovo - how is the flashing process ? So tempted by this at the price .

Hi just wondering if your phone has turned up yet.

I currently have the xiaomi mi5 which is great, but mini is becoming a bit annoying. How close to stock is this?
Imagine performance will be level or higher than my mi5 (mi5 I under clocked and has 3gb ram)

Thanks
