80% Lenovo Z5 Pro Review: The Budget Slider Phone
Source: PC Advisor English
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.
