Priced at the higher end of the mid-range spectrum, the Lenovo Z2 Plus is aimed at the user seeking a premium smartphone experience. It is priced at ₹17,999, which, looking at its specifications and features, is very competitive.

The phone has a 5-inch screen with a 2.5D screen glass and a 'unibody' structure that reminds one of the iPhone 4. The FHD panel screen has an impressive pixel density of 441 pixels per inch (PPI).

Lenovo has tweaked the phone's Snapdragon Qualcomm 820 chip so that it has always-on sensors which help track the user's health without switching any app on.
