Lenovo Z2 features
One of the highlights of the smartphone is its U-Touch control technology that allows easy navigation through the interface. A single touch is for back, single press for home, press and hold to bring up Google Now, double press for multitasking, and swipe from left to right or vice-versa to switch between apps. That s not all, the Lenovo Z2 Plus is also equipped with a health app called U-health that logs your health records. It can track the number of steps walked, distance covered and calories burned. The always-on activity tracker runs in background and hardly drains the battery, Lenovo says.
