Z1 the first 4G smartphone from Lenovo’s subsidiary ZUK was launched a couple of months ago in Pakistan by online retailer Cheezmall.com
Cheezmall delayed the launch several times and finally offered it for sale at a much higher price than other international markets.
At a price of Rs. 35,000; Z1 simply failed to attract any attention in the market. Which was totally predictable, since ZUK or in this case even Lenovo isn’t well known in Pakistan and people are not ready to spend this much amount for a Chinese brand.
Is it a good phone?
ZUK Z1 is decent phone but it doesn’t compete other flagships. The key specifications include Metallic Unibody design, 5.5″ Full HD screen, Snapdragon 801 processor, 3GB of RAM, 64GB on board storage, a duo of 13 + 8 Megapixel Cameras, a fingerprint scanner, 4,100 mAh battery with quick charge and Type-C USB port.
These are all good, but customers in this market are not ready to overpay for a smartphone they don’t know is worth their money.
After months of failure, Cheezmall has now decided to reduce the price of this phone to Rs. 28,000 ─ which is still higher than those in other markets ─ however now it seems to justify the specifications.
This deal also includes 12GB of 4G internet from Zong for 6 months after the purchase.
