Lenovo released its affordable android smartphone Lenovo ZUK Z1 for Indian market and is available exclusively through amazon. ZUK Z1 is a smartphone packed with all cutting edge technologies and at the same time perfectly priced. This is one of the main reason I thought of taking some time and write about this piece of technology. Personally the best part about this phone is the price tag and the battery backup. You can get your ZUK Z1 for a price in India of Rs 13,499. The device is not available for offline purchase and is only available through amazon.

The design, the metal transitioning flawlessly into glass. The corners are curved and the back of the device is slightly arched giving you extra grip to hold. All combined, the device shimmers premium quality when you hold it. The ZUK Z1 comes preloaded with Cyanogen OS and the advantage is everything is pretty customizable as per user. You can change icons, boot animations and even lock screens. The AudioFX lets you do all sort of audio customizations. The PIN scramble features changes the number pad everytime and so your fingerprints don’t give away which keys you have pressed.
