Lenovo K10 Note showing front of the phone

Lenovo is best known for its laptops, but the company has a number of smartphones in its arsenal as well. In the Western world, Lenovo phones aren’t super popular and are largely unavailable. 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:

  1. Legion Legion Pro
  2. Lenovo Z6 Pro
  3. Lenovo K12 Pro
  4. Lenovo Z6 Lite

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


1. Lenovo Legion Pro

Lenovo Legion Phone Duel

When you think of Lenovo and games, the first name that comes to mind is Legion. As the company’s high-end gaming line, the Legion laptops and now the Legion Pro phone offer some serious head-turning style.

It’s technically limited to China, but you’ll most likely find the Legion Pro branded as the Legion Duel if you can track it down in Europe or Asia. As a Chinese device, you won’t have access to Google Play Store content right out of the box. The device oozes gaming style, and it features a unique side-mounted pop-up camera in case you want to stream your mobile games.

Beyond the cutting-edge style, the Legion Pro is 5G-ready with a Snapdragon 865 processor and a massive 5,000mAh battery. You can choose between 8, 12, and 16GB of memory and up to 512GB of onboard storage. The display has a gaming-ready 144Hz refresh rate and you can recharge at blistering 90W speeds.


Lenovo Legion Pro specs:

  • Display: 6.65-inch, Full HD+
  • SoC: Snapdragon 865
  • RAM: 8/12/16GB
  • Storage: 128/256/512GB
  • Cameras: 64 and 16MP
  • Front camera: 20MP
  • Battery: 5,000mAh
  • Software: Android 10

2. Lenovo Z6 Pro

Lenovo Z6 Pro

This is the best Lenovo phone you can widely get. It offers everything that power users need — a 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 onboard, 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, although you can get the international model on Amazon.


Lenovo Z6 Pro specs:

  • Display: 6.39-inch, Full HD+
  • SoC: Snapdragon 855
  • RAM: 6/8/12GB
  • Storage: 128/256/512GB
  • Cameras: 48, 16, 8, and 2MP
  • Front camera: 32MP
  • Battery: 4,000mAh
  • Software: Android 9.0 Pie

This is the newest Lenovo phone you’ll find on our list. It shares some similarities with its siblings as far as design and internals go, though the K12 Pro is in a family of its own.

The display is huge at 6.8 inches and also offers HD resolution. But things are different under the hood, as the Lenovo K12 Pro packs the less powerful Snapdragon 662 chipset and up to 4GB of RAM. The other major difference is in the camera department, with the phone sporting fewer camera sensors.

Other specs and features of the Lenovo K12 include a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, a 6,000mAh battery, and up to 128GB of expandable storage. US readers may recognize the K12 Pro as Motorola’s Moto G Power — Lenovo owns Motorola.


Lenovo K12 Pro specs:

  • Display: 6.8-inch, HD+
  • SoC: Snapdragon 662
  • RAM: 4GB
  • Storage: 64/128GB
  • Cameras: 64, 2, and 2MP
  • Front camera: 16MP
  • Battery: 6,000mAh
  • Software: Android 10

4. Lenovo Z6 Lite

Lenovo Z6 Lite

The Lenovo Z6 Lite, also known as the Z6 Youth or K10 Note in some markets, is the cheapest and least powerful phone in the Z6 lineup. It still has more than enough power for the average user, packing the Snapdragon 710 chipset under the hood along with up to 6GB of RAM.

There’s a triple-camera setup at the back, which gives you plenty of versatility when taking shots. The display comes in a 6.3-inches and has a notch, and the battery is quite large with its 4,050mAh capacity.

The fingerprint scanner is at the back instead of under the display like with the other two Lenovo Z6 phones. The design of the phone is simple, which a lot of people will like, but it doesn’t stand out.

 

Lenovo Z6 Lite specs:

  • Display: 6.3-inch, Full HD+
  • SoC: Snapdragon 710
  • RAM: 4/6GB
  • Storage: 64/128GB
  • Cameras: 16, 8, and 5MP
  • Front camera: 16MP
  • Battery: 4,050mAh
  • Software: Android 9.0 Pie
