Lenovo Z6 Pro review

by birtanpublished on September 30, 2020

hey what's up guys Lenovo is widely
known these days for his Motorola brand
phones but it still releases Lenovo
phones once in a while in China but now
we're seeing an international flagship
release of this phone the lenovo c6 pro
could this be the sleeper hit of the
summer and will for gsm marina and let's
find out in our full review

the Lenovo z6 pro is one of the first
phones we've had in a long time with a
Lenovo branding since that has taken a
backseat to the companies moto brand but
what better way to make a comeback than
with a gorgeous looking flagship on top
of looking great it has a unique 5
camera setup an AMOLED screen a
Snapdragon 855 chipset and a large four
thousand milliamp hour battery
the Lenovo z6 pro is made of glass with
a metal frame when it catches the light
the curved back looks quite snazzy with
this vertical highlights if you put on
the included silicon case you can give
this slippery phone some extra grip but
it is a shame to cover up that beautiful
design but if you're just looking at the
front the z6 pros screen is quite nice
looking as well it's a tall six point
four inch Super AMOLED with a 1080p
resolution there is a nought for the
selfie cam but it's quite small or the
water drop shape content on this screen
looks decently sharp at 403 PPI and as
an AMOLED blacks are super deep max
brightness is excellent at 450 minutes
and the screen is HDR 10 compliant too
as far as color accuracy goes it's great
there's support for the DCI p3 and srgb
color spaces and everything can be
pretty accurate depending on the
settings you choose there's no
notification LED
but since the c6 pro is an OLED there
was an always-on display option too bad
it actually isn't always on it will
light up when you move the phone
sometimes it's rather buggy there is
another feature that you wouldn't notice
at first glance and that's the
fingerprint scanner which says under the
display it works great almost as
responsive and fast is a conventional
reader there is also face on lock which
works well but is less secure for audio
the Lenovo z6 pro has a bottom firing
loudspeaker and audio quality is quite
good it earned an excellent score in our
loudness test and the output is rich
with balanced highs and lows
I like that there's FM radio support and
that there's a 3.5 millimeter jack
however the software equalizer can't be
turned off so you never get totally
accurate output and loudness through
headphones isn't the best there are
quite a few storage options for the c6
Pro all of them pretty large you can
choose from 128 256 or 512 gigs onboard
and on top of that it's expandable to
the hybrid SIM slot the z6 pro's user
interface is Lenovo's proprietary zui
over android 9pi for the most part it
looks and feels just like stock Android
with Google feed panels the standard app
drawer and most functions provided by
Google's apps
the only real differences are in the
notification shade which has been
tweaked to hold more notifications and
toggles and the task switcher looks a
bit different more apps can fit into the
space at once you can navigate with the
on-screen keys or with lenovo's swipe
gestures swiping from the bottom of the
screen goes back swiping from the bottom
and holding goes home and swiping from
the edges opens the task switcher it is
worth mentioning that there is no NFC
though in case you needed that at the
heart of the Lenovo z6 pro was the
flagship grade snapdragon a 55 chipset
and you have options for 6 8 or 12 gigs
of ram performance is excellent as
expected on par and benchmarks with this
year's top flagships it also has a
cooling system with a copper pipe and
vapor chamber and we got nice sustained
performance without thermal throttling
the z6 pro's battery life is impressive
too it has a 4000 million power battery
and in our proprietary tests it had an
axial and endurance rating of a hundred
hours a nice perk is that you get a 27
watt power delivery charge
even though the phone only supports 18
watts even so is still fast going from 0
to 45% in half an hour now on to the z6
pros unique Penta camera setup there's a
48 megapixel main camera the quad Bayer
filter an 8 megapixel 2x telephoto cam a
16 megapixel ultra wide camera a 3d tof
sensor for portrait mode and a 2
megapixel shooter for low
videos shots from the main camera are
saved in 12 megapixels and in good light
quality is every bid flash upgrade
photos are sharp and have great detail
true to life colors high contrast and
impressive dynamic range shots from a
telephoto camera also come out in 12
megapixels so that means they're up
scaled a bit
regardless quality is excellent with
plenty of detail and the same great
colors contrast and dynamic range you
get from the main cam the ultra wide
cams quality is good with dynamic range
as wide as the other two cameras the
color rendition is a bit colder however
and you have barrel distortion around
the edges with no option for correction
unlike many competitors this ultra wide
cam has auto focus and you can take
macro shots with it these look quite
good with the exception of a blurred
corner or chromatic aberration every
once in a while
portraits are taken with the main camera
and a tof sensor and these are
impressive subject separation is among
the best we've seen from a smartphone
and you get great detail and convincing
the focus backgrounds in low lights the
cameras turn on HDR mode automatically
the main camera shoots nice photos with
realistic exposure in a decent amount of
detail if you turn on the dedicated
night mode the results are amazing
easily rivaling hallways implementation
but these are much faster to shoot there
is plenty of captured lights low noise
and great sharpness in contrast the
ultra wide cameras nighttime photos are
pretty bad with high noise levels and
poor resolve detail and unfortunately
you don't have the option for night mode
here and if you wanted to switch to the
telephoto cam it won't work in low-light
zoom photos will be cropped from the
main camera for selfies the z6 pearl has
a 32 megapixel front-facing shooter they
would use as pixel pinning to save
images in 8 megapixels when there is
enough light selfies are decent there's
great contrasts and colors but dynamic
range is just average detail is okay but
we expected more here
moving on to video recording the z6 pro
can shoot 4k video at 30fps with a main
cam and the ultra wide and 1080p video
with a dedicated 2 megapixel cam sadly
you can't record to the telephoto
porque videos from the main camera look
quite good with rich detail excellent
contrast lively colors and a wide
dynamic range there is no stabilization
and we see some over sharpening in the
foliage 4k videos from the ultra white
cam have just averaged detail and colors
are a bit on the colder side again
there's no stabilization here to get
stabilized video you'll have to use the
2 megapixel camera during the day it can
shoot nice 1080p clips with plenty of
detail true to life colors balance
sharpening and OIS it's even more
impressive at night though which is
actually it's for teh nighttime videos
have an amazing amount of detail
excellent exposure and very low noise so
that's the Lenovo z6 pro you get a
beautiful build a great AMOLED screen an
awesome Penta camera setup excellent
battery life and flagship grade
performance all for just around 500
euros but though it is great it's not
perfect water protection would have been
nice and I wish there were more custom
features available in CY but the biggest
problem here is availability although
we'll be launching outside of China
there's only in select markets everyone
else will have to buy a gray import but
regardless the z6 pro is a great and
affordable flagship phone if only were
widely available then we could call it a
flagship killer but if you are able to
find it near you a dozen our full
recommendation thanks for watching guys
and see you on the next one
