The ZUK Z1 is “powered by Lenovo”, comes from a well-known home, and it’s really in itself: It comes with a large 5.5 “display and FullHD resolution, plus 64GB of space and a monster battery (4,100 It is extremely praiseworthy. For only $123.49 a very good overall package.

The ZUK Z1 remembers the hardware data strongly to the popular OnePlus One, but comes with a few improvements therefore. The Z1 has a future-proof USB Type-C connection as well as a fingerprint sensor. In addition, the battery with 4.100mAh is really large and presumably synonymous times two days through.
The biggest negative point is certainly the lack of the 800MHz frequency (band 20) for LTE on the “country”. Therefore, users from the more rural regions will probably not be able to use LTE. However, if you live in a larger city, or you are mostly in larger cities, you have no problems as I can say from my own experience. In addition, the camera, according to several reviews probably not be the best, but what can be with the other performance data and the price is well to cope.
Overall, even for China mobile phones exceptionally good value for money and straight CyanogenOS 12.1 is a real rarity and offers even more personalization and privacy protection possibilities than stock Android.
