Lenovo is best known for its laptops, but it has a number of great smartphones in its lineup too. In the Western world, Lenovo phones certainly aren’t super popular and are largely unavailable in countries like the US. Don’t let this fool you, Lenovo has excellent phones and quite a following in Asia particularly. One of Lenovo’s key advantages is that their phones are generally cheaper than those with similar specs from companies like Samsung, LG, and Google.

Best Lenovo phones:

Editor’s note: We will be updating this list of the best Lenovo phones regularly as new devices launch.


1. Lenovo Z6 Pro

Lenovo Z6 Pro

This is the best Lenovo phone you can currently get. It offers everything power users need — the Snapdragon 855 chipset, up to 12GB of RAM, and four rear cameras. It also sports a large 4,000mAh battery and comes with an in-display fingerprint scanner.

The display comes in at 6.39-inches and has a notch up top. The phone has a headphone jack on board, which is becoming a thing of the past on flagships. Other specs and features worth mentioning include expandable storage, a 32MP selfie camera, and as much as 512GB of storage.

The Lenovo Z6 Pro is also available in a 5G variant, which allows for faster download speeds, among other things. The phone was not released in the US, but you can get it on AliExpress via the button below.


Lenovo Z6 Pro specs:

  • Display: 6.39-inch, Full HD+
  • SoC: Snapdragon 855
  • RAM: 6/8/12GB

The Lenovo Z5 Pro GT is similar to the Z6 Pro in many ways. It sports the same display and is also powered by the Snapdragon 855 chipset. But overall, it offers less when it comes to specs and features.

Editor's Pick

What makes it stand out from the crowd is its design. It’s a slider phone, which means its selfie cameras are hidden from sight when not in use and pop up on top when you push down the display. This design approach allows for a high screen-to-body ratio without the need for a notch or thick bezels.

The phone was announced in December and ships with Android 8.1 Oreo on board, but it can be updated to Android Pie. It comes with an in-display fingerprint scanner and up to 512GB of storage, but you don’t get wireless charging or an IP rating. There’s also no headphone jack. Regardless, the Z5 Pro GT is definitely one of the best Lenovo phones you can get.


Lenovo Z5 Pro GT specs:

  • Display: 6.39-inch, Full HD+
  • SoC: Snapdragon 855
  • RAM: 8/12GB
  • Storage: 128/512GB
  • Cameras: 24 and 16MP
  • Front camera: 16 and 8MP
  • Battery: 3,350mAh
  • Software: Android 8.1 Oreo

This could be described as a toned-down version of the Lenovo Z6 Pro. It shares a few features with its more powerful brother but offers less overall when it comes to specs, which means it’s cheaper.

The display is the same size at 6.39 inches and also offers Full HD+ resolution. But things are different under the hood, as the Lenovo Z6 packs the less powerful Snapdragon 730 chipset and up to 8GB of RAM. The other major difference is in the camera department, with the phone sporting less camera sensor.

Other specs and features of the Lenovo Z6 include an in-display fingerprint scanner, a 4,000mAh battery, and up to 128GB of expandable storage. In terms of design, it looks very similar — but not the same — as the Z6 Pro.

Other than that, the devices are pretty much the same. That means the Z5 Pro features a 6.39-inch Full HD+ display, comes with two rear cameras, and packs a 3,350mAh battery. It also has a slider design, revealing the two front-facing cameras when you push down the display.
