Features, Performance, and Reviews for the Lenovo Z5

The CPU performance of Lenovo Z5

The Lenovo Z5 has an extremely high processing power of 1.8GHz+1.6GHz×8(OctaCore), so it can smoothly run any app out there with ease. Its performance ranks among the top-class of all smartphones released to date. It's well suited to running even the most demanding of 3D games with ease.

The Lenovo Z5 has a very high RAM capacity at 6GB. There are few cases where the RAM capacity would be insufficient, so it is also well suited to multitasking. It's unlikely to feel slow even when switching between several different apps.

The Lenovo Z5 is an exceptional high-end smartphone. You will be fully content with its performance in all areas. It is a must-have for you if operation performance is important for you.

Lenovo Z5's storage capacity

The Lenovo Z5 has 128GB of data storage, which is perfect for people who frequently take photos and videos. It is suited to taking both photos and videos, and is unlikely to feel inconvenient even with lots of apps or games installed.

Since the Lenovo Z5 is compatible with SD cards, you'll be able to easily expand your storage capacity; you won't need to worry about how much internal space it has.

Lenovo Z5's size

The Lenovo Z5 is 3.0 inches (75.7 mm) wide, 6.0 inches (153 mm) tall, and 0.3 inches (7.9 mm) thick. I can just barely use it with one hand, so it may feel big to some people. In the case of the Lenovo Z5, it weighs about 165 oz (165 g). The weight is such that it's hardly noticeable even when using one-handed. However, some people may find it tiring to use for long periods.

In giving an overall rating to the Lenovo Z5, while it may be slightly difficult to hold, it shouldn't be much of a problem when considering its general strengths and weaknesses.

Lenovo Z5's screen

The Lenovo Z5 has a 6.2 inch screen. The smartphone has a large, impressive screen, which allows you to enjoy photos and videos to the fullest. It is also very good for writing business documents and doing other work.

The screen of the Lenovo Z5 is extremely clear, and it's able to display everything from images to videos and even video game graphics in perfect clarity.

The camera function of Lenovo Z5

The Lenovo Z5 has a 16 MP main camera that lets you take photos and videos in a quite high resolution. You may be a little dissatisfied with it in some situations, for example when you want to capture scenery in very high resolution or print out beautiful photos, but this should not be an issue you run into very often.

The Lenovo Z5 comes with a 8 MP pixel camera, which is a standard level. It's perfectly fine for selfies, but may be not as satisfying if you wish to take photos of large numbers of people, or make printouts.

The battery performance of Lenovo Z5

The Lenovo Z5 has a relatively large battery with 3300 mAh. The Lenovo Z5 has a good battery life compared to other smartphones. You won't feel stressed even if you spend all day surfing the web or on Twitter and you can also watch videos or play games on the go without having to worry too much about the battery. If you watch videos or play games for too long, however, you might want to watch your battery a bit.

Overall assessment of Lenovo Z5

The Lenovo Z5 is a high-performance smartphone. You're not likely to experience any inconvenience in general use.
