Lenovo Z5 Pro

The Lenovo Z5 Pro is a mid-range smartphone with a manual slider selfie camera on the back. It is a premium smartphone with flagship features and comes with the latest trending features, which includes a slider mechanism design, 95.06 % screen-to-body ratio, an in-display fingerprint sensor scanner and many others. The Lenovo Z5 Pro is one of the cheapest sliding smartphones out there. Lenovo not only understands the interest, but is also looking for budget market share. The smartphone measures 155.12 x 73.04 x 9.30 mm (height x width x thickness) and weighs 210.00 grams. It was launched in Ceramic Black color. The handset has an in-display fingerprint sensor and Face Unlock ID with an IR scanner. Equipped with a 6.39-inch Full HD+ Super AMOLED display with 1,080 x 2,340 pixels resolution from Samsung which also features an on-screen fingerprint scanner, the Z5 Pro is running on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 processor alongside 6 GB of RAM and a dedicated security chip from NXP. Its AI game acceleration mode can throttle CPU, GPU and memory performance while playing games on the device. According to Lenovo, the Z5 Pro offers a screen-to-body ratio of 95.06 percent and an aspect ratio of 19.5:9. The HDR 10 compliant AMOLED display is embedded with the fifth-generation photo-electric under-display fingerprint sensor. The display has the latest 19.5:9 aspects ratio. For the main camera, the phone uses a dual-camera setup with a 16 MP sensor with f/1.8 aperture and a secondary 24 MP sensor. It offers an AI Super Night Scene mode and AI Super Video Shooting. To take a selfie photo, users must slide the back part of the phone to reveal a 16 MP + 8 MP sensor and also an infrared sensor for face recognition system. The dual front camera comes with some additional features like HDR and FHD video capturing at 30 fps. The Lenovo smartphone is powered with a non-removable 3,350 mAh Li-Po battery, which luckily supports fast battery charging. Dolby Atmos is also supported through both speakers of the smartphone. The device is benefited with some connectivity option like Wi-Fi 802.11, Wi-Fi Direct, dual-band, hotspot, Bluetooth 5.0, A2DP, LE, EDR, A-GPS, GLONASS, BDS, NFC, micro USB 2.0, a reversible Type-C 1.0 connector, USB-OT, but unluckily no 3.5 mm audio jack. The IntelliGo AI chip present on the device can significantly reduce noise during phone calls. As a conclusion, the Lenovo Z5 Pro offers a slider experience on a budget. It comes with a good camera and performance which is reasonable for the price tag. The Z5 Pro is suitable for users who like the new slider feature on a budget.

The Z5 Pro is Lenovo's interpretation of a slider smartphone and the manufacturer's response to the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 and Honor Magic 2. Unlike these two competitors, Lenovo has positioned its Z5 Pro in the mid-range price segment. Find out in our detailed review whether importing this Lenovo phone is a good idea despite one large faux pas.

If you can get past the complicated Chinese setup, the Lenovo Z5 Pro is a cracking phone at around £300. It has the design and many of the features of the flagships, along with one of the best mid-range processors on the market. Unfortunately audio and photography let it down.

Lenovo Z5 Pro GT review: Hands-on
Source: PC Advisor English
This is a pretty wallet-friendly way to get a Snapdragon 855 phone, and even if you kit it out with 12GB RAM it’s still comfortably cheaper than Samsung’s maxxed out S10 Plus. Sliders aren’t for everyone, but if you’re a fan then this looks like a solid bet, as long as you don’t mind the hassles of importing.
