Lenovo launched Vibe Z2 pro in India today which will retail for 32,999 INR exclusively on flipkart. Spec junkies will love it as it packs the best possible hardware available at its price. Let’s stack it against LG G3 (Full review), the nicely crafted Quad HD display smartphone which managed to grab everyone’s attention and presently sits as LG’s ambitious flagship phone.
Display and Processor
Both LG G3 and Lenovo Vibe Z2 feature a Quad HD display but Vibe Z2 Pro is much bigger in size at 6 Inches. Lenovo has shaved off both vertical and horizontal bezels in vibe Z2 Pro as well, but LG G3 does a better job at it and will be better suited by those who value one handed usage.
Both smartphones use 2.5 GHz Snapdragon 801 quad core SoC with Adreno 330 GPU aided with 3 GB RAM (2 GB in 16 GB variant of LG G3) which means you can expect similar performance from both units.
Camera and Internal Storage
The LG G3 has a 13 MP rear camera with better Laser autofocus, while the Lenovo Vibe Z2 incorporates a 16 MP rear unit with 16:9 aspect ratio sensor. Both phones feature OIS and dual LED flash and the ability to record 4k videos. LG G3 has a good quality 2.1 MP shooter at the front, while Vibe Z2 pro houses a 5 MP more front cam for detailed selfies.
LG G3 offers 16 GB, 32 GB storage options with MicroSD expansion up to 128 GB. On the other hand, Lenovo Vibe Z2 Pro offers non expandable 32 GB storage, which doesn’t leave much room for power users.
Battery and Other features
The LG G3 manages a comfortably for 1 day with mixed usage from its 3000 mAh battery, in spite of demanding hardware. Lenovo Vibe Z2 Pro is no slouch either with 4000 mAh capacious battery which Lenovo claims will last for 3 days of active usage. Both phones won’t disappoint you in this regard.
Both phones run on customized Android 4.4.2 Kitkat out of the box, with some heavy customizations and plenty of features. LG G3 has loads to offer including a very decent and intuitive keyboard. Standard set of connectivity options remain same, except for IR blaster and WiFi ac which are exclusive to LG G3 out of the two.

LG G3 has brushed metal finish and is more comfortable to hold in hand while offering some additional software features, but its more than 15,000 INR expensive as compared to LG G3. So if you strictly want something bigger than 5.5 inch, you can opt for Vibe Z2 Pro. Vibe Z2 Pro is also significantly cheaper which is also the most important spec in Indian market.
