I was quite impressed by the recently reviewed Lenovo K3 Note, with the only thing holding that phone back from greatness being the less than optimal background app management. I still consider the K3 note a great buy in that price range, but those looking for a bit more oomph may consider the just released flagship Lenovo ZUK Z1.

Right off the bat there’s a lot to like about the Lenovo ZUK Z1. This mobile has Qualcomm’s flagship SoC from 2014/2015. It’s a very powerful SoC.

The rear camera has optical image stabilization, which reduces blur from small hand movements while shooting. Anyone who’s shot in less than optimal light will know that this hardware feature can vastly improve your shots in terms of sharpness.

Selfie lovers unite: the front camera is the very capable OV8865, which is the main rear-camera in the Xiaomi Redmi 2. I found this sensor to be quite sharp and it speaks volumes that ZUK is using it as the front camera here. You can see samples of what type of quality the OV8865 in the Xiaomi Redmi 2 review.

The battery is a huge 4100mAh, which should be more than enough to get even complete phone geeks through a full day. We’re talking 8+ hours onscreen with typical WiFi use.

Also notable is the worldwide WCDMA 3G.

As mentioned, I was quite impressed with the Lenovo K3 Note, but some people crave a bit more premium specs. If you’re looking for a flagship mobile at less than half the price of what you’d pay from Apple or Samsung, consider the ZUK Z1
