Lenovo Z5 Pro Slider Phone Review, Price, Performance & Full Specs

On the first day of November 2018, Lenovo announced a flagship smartphone called Lenovo Z5 Pro. The company said it will be released on November 11, 2018. Of utmost interest is the fact Lenovo has claimed that this mobile phone is the highest in terms of screen to body ratio in recent times. We cannot jump to conclusions and agree to that until the end of the year.
