Heart rate and oxygen saturation in the blood are determined by a sensor on the back of the smartphone. After the app has been started, only the finger has to be placed on this sensor and briefly maintained. Also the battery can score with good performance.

The language quality can also be convincing. The dial-in and connection time, when using WLAN or Bluetooth, is fast and stable, so you do not have to make any cuts. What you will usually find in vain when the smartphone is delivered is the Google Play Store. This can be, however, with a little idea, at any time post-installed. However, in some cases it may happen that it is already installed before shipping. Since it is a product from China, the language is predominantly English, although in some cases it was not properly translated. Sometimes it can even happen that in some areas no translation took place. Otherwise, Chinese and Japanese are among the most popular languages of the ZUK Z2 Pro. However, it is also possible to buy the device in a multilanguage version. A positive surprise will be the Homebutton, which also serves as a fingerprint sensor at the same time and thus protects sensitive data and the phone itself from foreign access. It not only detects the finger in a certain position, but also from different positions, which makes the unlocking much easier. The Homebutton can be configured as desired, so you can decide which function should be executed at which touch. For example, you can navigate to the start menu, close or open certain apps by simply touching or printing.
