9 Problems and Issues of Lenovo Z2 Plus (EXPLAINED)

Problems and Issues of Lenovo Z2 Plus Review (Cons)

This article is about the Lenovo Z2 Plus Problems, Issues and Cons Review.

On paper the specs of the Lenovo Z2 Plus looks quite promising. It has Snapdragon 820, Adreno 530, 4GB RAM, 64 GB internal, fingerprint scanner, 3500 mAh battery with Quick-charge, 4K camera, Gorilla Glass 3 etc. But deep down inside its has nothing to impress at a higher note other than the Snapdragon 820 chipset. So that’ why I have decided to publish this review of Lenovo Z2 Plus problems, issues and cons to share with you all.


Below are the lists of Lenovo Z2 Plus problems and issues (disadvantages, cons, bugs, negatives, drawbacks, demerits, downfall etc.):

1. The first is the display which is only a full HD panel. Now a days for this kind of money you can easily get a 2K display, follow this link to get one. Also the display has a lower level of contrast ratio.

2. Also its a smaller display which is of only 5 inches. Today’s the standard size for a high mid-ranger is 5.5 inches and anything below 5.5 is a compromise. However people with smaller hands will definitely love.

3. The 8.5 mm thickness makes the Lenovo Z2 Plus a bit bulky. If it is a large phone it won’t be a problem.

4. Although the primary camera can shoot 4K and slow motion videos for still images its not good. The reason is for the smaller focal aperture of f/2.2 which produce just average quality images in low light conditions.

5. Additionally the primary does not have an OIS (optical image stabilization) feature. The company says that it has an EIS which is an electronic one. Compared to an OIS, EIS is rubbish.

6. All the navigational touch buttons are placed on the screen itself. It is already a small screen.

7. Another problems or issues is that there is no NFC (near field communication) technology.

8. No infrared sensor for IR blaster as well.

9. And the last Lenovo Z2 Plus issues or cons is that the memory cannot be expanded because of the absence of a memory card slot. If you can get the 64 GB variant it might ease the problem to an extent.

My Verdict: Good but not enough to impress or go with it. But if you are looking for an alternative recommendation then follow the link below.

  4. but lenovo z2 plus is the second best smartphone in the world at 20k range, So what is the better alternative smart phone at 20k range with low cons. ?

  5. You have just pointed out the Cons as things that is what you don’t want. The phone is not targeted for users like, so is the price accordingly..

    1. Small Screen –> If you are looking for bigger phone, then this is not for you, but a lot of people need smaller powerful phone

    2. 2k Display –> Not really needed for a 5 inch phone, even Google Pixel doesn’t have

    3. IR Blaster –> Missing in lot of top notch phone, so you are just cribbing

    4. 8.5 mm tickness for large is ok, why not for now, even Pixel has same thickness.. Basically of people are looking for such huge battery, the thickness will increase, anyways its a better hold now 🙂
