When you hold Lenovo vibe z for the first time, it’s slim factor and light factor would be the one seen by anyone at sight. That sliver mat emboss finish back in its unibody design, at lower part chrome finish  with speaker grills on it. The complete black screen with gorilla glass on front makes it a different black beauty of Lenovo. The side slim, smooth edges with chrome finish, which enhances it amazing beauty. The top has an headphone jack and a power button,the phone slimness is of the same size of 3.5mm headphone jack. The side has micro SIM tray, volume rocker . The power button is placed exactly as the Apple’s iPhone’s power button. The back top corner has an rectangular shaped 13MP camera with dual led flash on it. The front prospective at bottom, it has 3 buttons back, home, menu button. The form factor of 5.5inch screen looks huge with on paper specs, but it was easy to fit in my hands, pocket look for the video in detail.


The 13MP rear autofocus, dual led flash and 5 MP front after testing they were simply awesome. It would be the first android phone I had seen which auto focuses in secs. The image had so much vivid colours it captured those were mind blowing Lenovo. I didn’t expect that from you Lenovo . The front facing 5 MP camera was so amazing when I clicked a shot it almost looked liked it had been Captured from rear. The 1080p screen makes it more amazing to view the captured vivid photos. The camera app it self has different effects to capture such as fish eye, blur, scope , mirror, glass, loom, pencil , star bust etc. The 13MP cam even performances amazing in low light conditions with its dual led flash and the night more is too more effective to shot more good pics from the phone. I guess I didn’t expect the Lenovo to make a such good phone in less time. That too with amazing front cam was shocking for me. It’s a must buy phone for selfies lover who loves to take lots of species.


Operating System and software

The vibe z comes with 4.3 out off box and it had a update of 49.50MB which I got when connected to my WiFi. The user interface is friendly it is almost same MIUI of xiaomii. The operating system had no specific app drawer , your home screen itself is app drawer with 6 themes which made the phone experience more amazing. Talking about the bloatware I use to get max 778 mb Ram to use out of 2GB yet the phone was smooth and performances was excellent. The inbuilt space availability was up to the mark, making it worth investing phone at that budget. The only thing which I notice there  was no such music player which comes with other phone, here in Lenovo vibe z play music was default app to play music. The antutu benchmark scored 35000 approx which was above note 3 Top in the benchmark list,but in frames benchmark I didn’t got 60 fps it was about 50 fps so that was quiet disappointing as note 3 gets it, but looking at budget I think it’s better that too with snapdragon 800.


When I started using Lenovo, It really force me to add special music section because those speaker grills at the bottom of phone over chrome finish looks beautiful but also sounds good then those other phones in same budget. There is no such equalizer in the phone but when you plug good headphone in my case skullcandy those sound so amazing that wasn’t expected for Me. Those bass pumping and amazing level of treble set in default equalizer made me a total fan of Lenovo vibe z. We even gone it from testing it to a car system and level of profile bumping up sounds and that clarity sounded was awful given out by Lenovo vibe z.


Call and Video call 

The Lenovo vibe z had a unibody design and more importantly it has micro SIM, on the right side insert the thin pin which we get inside the box the micro SIM tray pops out and place the SIM on it. The top medium size call receiver speaker grill sounded amazing over the call the quality given was good. That front facing 5MP cam we already recommended it for selfies, definitely the video call will Be amazing on it.The speakers were amazing it even sounded good on video call and voice call over speakers.



Gaming on Lenovo Vibe Z is amazing All because of krait 400 and snapdragon 800 2.26 Ghz which Benchmark score is above note 3 with 35,000 score in Antutu benchmark. We tested few games like Ashphalt 8, Modern combat the Graphics generated by GPU were just awesome. We have shown it in video.
