Lenovo Z2 Plus vs Xiaomi Mi 5 vs LeEco Le Max2 vs OnePlus 3: Price, specifications and features compared

Lenovo’s newly launched Z2 Plus is the cheapest Android smartphone powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 processor. We compared the smartphone with its closest competitors and here’s how it fares.

lenovo z2 plus launch

Earlier today, Lenovo launched its flagship smartphone, the Z2 Plus in India, which is basically the rebranded version of ZUK Z2 that Lenovo has launched in China earlier this year. For the Indian markets, Lenovo has dropped the ZUK moniker and calling it Z2 Plus instead. With prices starting at Rs 17,999, it is the most affordable smartphone to be powered by Qualcomm s Snapdragon 820 quad-core processor. While smartphones with metal frame are common these days, Lenovo has used fiberglass material for the Z2 Plus, which it claims is stronger and lighter than metal.

It s a touch sensitive button with gesture support, allowing you to navigate through the interface using your thumb or fingers. It doesn t have capacitive buttons for back and app switcher, instead a single touch on home buttons acts as back function, single press for home, press and hold to bring up Google Now, double press to switch apps, and swipe from left to right switch between apps.
