High Contrast and High Pixel Density provides amazing sharpness. Viewing angles are also too good. With high pixel density you can read even the smallest text without any distortion. There is no issue while viewing display under direct sunlight with the auto-brightness mode. Display might not come with any additional protection so its better to use Screen Protectors.

When it comes to performance Z1 is the perfect Beast in your hands. Zuk Z1 is powered by 32-Bit Quad Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 (One of the best powerful processor till date) clocked at a 2.5Ghz with Adreno 330. Z1 comes with 3GB RAM on board along with 64GB ROM. Memory card slot is not available which is a bit let down but 64GB is enough to store all the necessary data. I personally use a 32GB card so from my opinion 64GB is enough (You can also increase the storage via OTG). Performance is totally lag free. Anything you want to do with Zuk Z1 it will go smooth without any lag. Antutu Scores came to be around 45k. Even while play high end games at MAX SETTINGS you wont find any lags or frame drops. Thanks to 3GB RAM which made the multi tasking buttery smooth. Browsing, Closing/Opening Apps and switching between them is very reliable and adding to that thanks to the one and only CyanogenMod 12.1 which is totally smooth just like Stock Android but with more features. Zuk Z1’s performance is flawless even while High end gaming and multitasking Snapdragon 801 handles it just like charm.

Zuk Z1 has a 13MegaPixel Sony IMX 214 rear snapper along with Optical Image Stabilization (OIS), 5 plastic lens Images, AutoFocus and Flash. Images clicked are way too amazing with natural colors and are highly detailed. Advanced Largen 5P lens makes the picture more authentic and vivid. In outdoor the camera quality reflects sharp colors and high details. But the quality is not as good as outdoor when compared it with the shots took indoor but its still good with the help of flash. Full HD videos can be recorded @60fps and also at @30fps.
Front camera is 8MP which does a great job too. Images clicked are great. Outdoor performance is excellent but indoors sometimes the camera doesn’t perform upto the mark in low light. Front camera can record 1080p Full HD videos @30fps.
