One of the key highlights of the device is the Cyanogen OS 12.1 which gives the power of customization to the user. There are several features not available in stock android devices which include unlocked boot loader, extensive customization and root access. Other high-end specifications make the phone powerful device for everyday use.

The Lenovo ZUK Z1 comes with a 5.5 inch full-HD IPS display and has a resolution of 1080×1920 pixels. There is a full glass panel in front and a non-removable plastic back. The sensitive fingerprint scanner is embedded in the home button of the device.

On the hardware front, the phone has a Snapdragon 801 processor which can clock speeds up to 2.5GHz, an Adreno 330 graphics card and 3GB of RAM. The internal storage is a massive 64GB with no options for memory expansion. There is a massive 4100mAh battery which can last long even under heavy usage. Connectivity options include 4G LTE, Bluetooth v.4.1, Wi-Fi and USB Type-C reversible connector.

A 13MP rear camera with Sony IMX214 sensor enables sharp shooting and video recording. There is also an 8MP front camera. The phone comes with Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) which is a rare feature in this price range.

Lenovo is aiming to compete with the likes of OnePlus X and Asus Zenfone 2 with this latest launch. However, the cheap price point along with top-notch features give an edge to Lenovo ZUK Z1.
