  • Ask MoDaCo: The Zuk Z1


    PaulOBrien

    This is the Zuk Z1, a new, Lenovo-backed phone from China that will soon be available in Western markets running CyanogenOS.

    Packing a Snapdragon 801 processor (you know, the one that doesn't set fire to your trousers and monster through your battery), 3GB RAM, 64GB storage, a full HD 5.5" screen, USB type-C and a 4100mAh battery (!) for a price imported from China of ~£200, it looks set to challenge OnePlus in the value stakes and perhaps put another nail in the coffin of traditional flagships. It even has a front mounted fingerprint sensor like the OnePlus 2 (although it actually works faster and more reliably!). 

    We have one here - what would you like to know? The model we have here runs ZukUI, a MIUI-alike custom OS.

    More details about the phone can be found (in Chinese) on the Zuk website.

    Are you going to flash CM12.1 on it?  (is it actually available yet?)

    Does the camera have OIS?  I think its the same module as the Oneplus One but with OIS which should be great as the OPO camera is pretty good.

    Hows battery life so far? standby, SOT?

    Thoughts on build quality? Is the back cover plastic or glass?

    Thanks

    Based on the spyware than Lenovo are baking into their laptop bios's I certainly no longer trust any hardware made by them... which is a shame as otherwise this looks like an interesting device

    I have flashed CM12 preview version. Camera does not have OIS as far as I know. I got over 5 hours SOT, which is epic for me.

    Back cover is plastic which i'm not a massive fan of, but overall the build quality is excellent.

    Cam seems pretty good. No lag (particularly on CM), screen is good in sunlight. The fingerprint readers is easily the best i've ever used. Fast-ish charge (faster than OP2, but not 'quickcharge'). Battery doesn't appear to be removable.

    Lenovo 'backed' but not Lenovo.

    • Question itself suggest the role of the consultant and process of complete ISO certification is to provide the consultation for the organisation in each and every step-in order to become ISO Certified company. The fundamental qualities that a consultation must possess are particularly specified based on the implementation of different types of ISO standards. ISO is a Non-governmental and non-profitable organisation established on 23rd of February 1947, by a group of delegates across the country with enormous amount of standard requirements knowledge. The motto of this organisation is to publish International standards based on different aspects of business and commercial ideas. The international standards that are published by ISO are initially supported by a technical committee which consists of a vast employee and widely used knowledge across the world. Final a draft copy is submitted to the organisation called international organisation for standardization (ISO). Based on the literal existence of the concepts, process and the improvements in the world, so will decide to publish the International standard with the supported statement and proof that are provided by the technical committee. Any International standard that are published by ISO will have a large background work and many supportive proves. That is the reason why a consultant who is implementing any specific International standards that are published by ISO must have an enormous knowledge about both ISO and the standard. Based on this and the requirements of the organisation where the standard implementation is necessary, placing the clauses each and every corner of the organisation starts with a procedural manner. The roles and responsibility of a consultant plays a major role in in achieving the certification for the organisation. ISO 9001 Certification in Saudi Arabia
