Lenovo ZUK Z1 International Edition 4G Smart Phone 
Use Coupon Code:GBZUKZ1 reduce to USD 284

OnePlusOne was called Flagship Killer. It was indeed true. With popular Cynogenmod OS, flagship hardware and low price, OnePlusOne was very popular.

However, OnePlusTwo is a little disappointment: Cyanogenmod is replaced by OnePlus's own Oxygen OS, Lack NFC and quick charge.

Now it is the turn for Lenovo ZUK Z1 to play the role of OnePlusTwo killer. Both has similar hardware but Lenovo has several of key advantage: Cynogenmod OS, 4100mAh battery and much lower price.

Current price is USD 299 (free shipping, no tax). However, on October 26, 2015 5:00am Eastern Time, there will be a big promotion on Lenovo ZUK Z1, only limit to first 100 phones.

Following are the comparisons between Lenovo ZUK1 Z and OnePlusTwo:


Lenovo ZUK Z :USD 299 ,Free Shipping,No Tax,No Duty(Win)
OnePlusTwo:USD 389 + Shipping + Tax , also need invitation.


Lenovo ZUK Z :Aluminum frame,similar with iPhone 6 Plus(Win)
OnePlusTwo:No big changes from OnePlusOne


Lenovo ZUK Z :Cyanogen OS 12.1 5.5 (Win)

Cyanogen is one of the best Android systems. It is too bad that OnePLusTwo abandon it. OxygenOS is developed by OnePlus its own but can not compare with Cyanogen since it is just introduced.

Lenovo ZUK Z :4100 mAh, Support Quick Charge(Win)
OnePlusTwo:3300 mAh

Lenovo ZUK Z :USB-Type C 3.0(Win)
OnePlusTwo:USB-Type C 2.0
现在新出的旗舰级不用正反都可以插的USB-Type C接口都不好意思。虽然都用了USB-Type C,但Lenovo 的是V3.0,OnePlusTwo是V2.0。V3.0传输数据比V2.0 快十倍。


Lenovo ZUK Z :5.5 inch Screen,1920x1080 pixels (Tie)
OnePlusTwo:5.5 inch Screen,1920x1080 pixels


Lenovo ZUK Z :64G ROM 3G RAM(Tie)
OnePlusTwo:64G/16 ROM 4G/3G RAM

Fingerprint Id

Lenovo ZUK Z :Latest fingerprint sensor technology, fast and support 360 dgrees identification (Win)
OnePlusTwo:Support fingerprint id


Lenovo ZUK Z :Snapdragon 801
OnePlusTwo:Snapdragon 810(Win)
810 is faster than 801, but 810 has overheating issue. 801 is already fast enough for most of the daily tasks.
