Highlights of the Zuk Z1 include a 4,100 mAh battery, a Full HD display and dual-SIM support. Additionally, the handset features a polycarbonate rear with metal frame and USB Type-C connector. 

Lenovo has pushed the Zuk Z1 marketing hard with what is says is the world's first "crowd-sourced launch event" and the device pricing is also extremely competitive. Still, more Android One devices are incoming and will no doubt be able to undercut the Zuk Z1.

  • "new" device?? it's from at least 6-7 months ago. snapdragon 801.... uhhhhh.. ok....

  • I own mine since October last year, overall it's a decent phone but not one I would recommend to other people

  • This phone is a real yorker for other phone manufacturers like OnePlus, Yu, etc. Although not released it does have stunner specs. OnePlus, Samsung, etc should bring look out for this and bring equally competent phone as gazing this bring OnePlus X to shame in my mind.

  • This looks like a really good deal to me. 64GB base storage and 3GB RAM housed in a beautiful looking metal body, USB Type-C, SD801 and the best of all CyanogenOS 12.1 all for Rs. 13,499!!! This is an awesome device in this range. Beats Moto G (3rd gen), Honor 5X and OnePlus X IMO.
