Lenovo Vibe Z2: 1440p display, Snapdragon 801 chipset, and a giant 4000 mAh battery

In the last few years, Lenovo has focused heavily on the smartphone market by releasing well-built phones with fairly sought after features. A recent example of this was the Lenovo S860 which featured a giant 4000 mAh battery and an aluminum casing.

However, now they've joined the likes of LG and Vivo by using a Quad-HD (1440p) display in their latest smartphone-- the Lenovo Vibe Z2. Other features include:

  • Snapdragon 801 chipset (clocked at 2.5ghz)
  • 16mp OIS camera
  • NFC

And all of that is packed into an extremely slim alloy body that is 7.7mm at it's thickest point, and within that 7.7mm body they've managed to fit in a giant 4000 mAh battery. No specific mention of the OS has been made, but given that it carries a Snapdragon chipset (as well as Lenovo's historical track record), we can safely assume it will have the latest version of Android. If not, then it would certainly be Cyanogenmod compatible.

The Lenovo Vibe Z2 hasn't officially launched yet, but based on the leak, it appears that the launch is not too far away. Based on the Snapdragon chipset, as well as reports of Lenovo wanting to penetrate the US market from last year, there is a good indication that this phone may in fact be offered in the US/EU.

Lenovo has mentioned they are working on a WP device.

It would be interesting to see them create one device that runs either Android or WP. That would certainly save them some on development.

From the looks of it, it seems that it won't be as those super premium cheap made devices. If that's so, then I'm in!

Ohh you mean the Samsung Galaxy devices? lol

Plastic is a better material for a phone's case than Aluminium. Harder to scratch, harder to dent and lighter. Aluminium looks a bit nicer but I guess Samsung chose function over form.

These arguments will never end, to each their own. There will always be a catch 22 when picking one material over the other. You feel plastic is better than aluminum for a phone, I feel otherwise for the most part.

I can agree with your points that plastic is lighter, harder to scratch and dent. My complaint is that chipping and just the general feel (exception being the Lumia 820 and up, my dad has an 820) makes it feel like its worth much less in value. It feels really cheap and that it will depreciate sooner than say an HTC One or an iPhone 5s.

I, myself, LOVE the feel of an iPhone or an HTC One. It just feels top notch! I feel like I get my money's worth in build quality from said device material. I'm not one who drops his phone frequently but every time I did drop my iPhone 4s and my current 5, I haven't had any issues with cracks, scratches, shattering (iPhone 4s), or dents. For all those drops, my phone was either nude or rocking the Knucklecase ANVIL which is more of a WOW-factor case than something for protection. I got top dollar trade in for my 4S at Radioshack and (long story behind this, dont ask lol) it was a pre-order 4S. I got an iPhone 5 2 months before the 5s came; my mic went bad on the 4S but nobody likes a snitch. :)
