Performance

Under the hood of the Vibe Z2 Pro ticks a elegant Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 chipset (MSM8974AC) with a 2.5Giga Hertz (GHz) quad-core Krait 400 Central Processing Units (CPU) and an Adreno 330 GPU clocked at 500MHz. There's also 3GB of RAM, which is plenty even if you are running multiple heavy apps simultaneously.

The Krait 400 Central Processing Units (CPU) architecture has proven to be quick in almost every utilize case. However, the QHD resolution of the 6" IPS display is going to create the Adreno 330 GPU sweat a bit in the GPU-based benchmarks.

So, our first test inspects the raw Central Processing Units (CPU) performance. In the multi-OS GeekBench the Vibe Z2 Pro slid just under the iPhone 6 Plus, the Galaxy Note 4 and some way behind the Huawei Ascdiscontinue Mate7, which employs the Kirin 925 chipset with four 1.8Giga Hertz (GHz) Cortex-A15 cores.

Overall, the Lenovo Vibe Z2 Pro doesn't outshine its competitors in most benchmarks. However, it's real life performance is more than satisfactory and in general usage the phone's chipset doesn't skip a beat. Very rarely were there any stutters in the UI, but we're sure those instances were from unpolished software code. In any case, there's still more for Lenovo to polish from its Vibe 2.0 UI and we're sure it will deliver in the months ahead.
