My quick charger won't stop buzzing so I think I will get the Anker.

I've got an Aukey PA-U31-IT with 4 ports and it's charging very fast without any problems. It's really important to choose the correct glass screen protector because I've got a nameless glass and it's not fitting well on the corners.

I just got the Topace clear case and now just realise it is the same one as you have.
I am also in Germany (although English).

Happy with this case, it fits well and ports are available and buttons work, doesn't add much thickness or weight and you can still see the phone :)

Does anyone have a picture of the phone with the brotect screen protector? I got a different protector with my phone that looks like this:



I'm looking for a screen protector that covers the phone better, but I wonder what the brotect looks like, since the phone has rounded glass.

I bought a screen protection but have not used it.

Don't know if you guys noticed it, but the Z2 pro is sold with a screen protection already on the phone!
I still have it after 2 month and it does the job pretty well... So I am not I want to take it of for some third party one that might not fit so well.
Flames said:
I got the Nillkin Screen protector and I don't like the fit at all. It's designed to cover the whole screen, but even after using guide tape it is screwed up on the right side where there is like a 1.5mm gap between the end of the screen protector and the screen.





While it looks like I didn't alight the screen protector properly, the right side is perfectly covering the right edge of the screen. I wouldn't recommend this screen protector.

edit: It was driving me nuts. I've removed it from the screen.
BenjieB said:
That's the price to pay with curved edge screens... It sucks.

No screen protector will be solid, cover the whole screen AND stick well on the edges... Sad fact!

Anker seems to be a very good brand for USB Type-C stuff like cables and so on.
A Google engineer has a complete list @ Amazon with recommended cables and Anker is mentioned very often: https://www.amazon.com/gp/profile/amzn1.account.AFLICGQRF6BRJGH2RRD4VGMB47ZA

However my personal experience with DeLock products has been VERY BAD so far so I suggest staying away from them unless you really have no alternative :)

I got this TSCase in black from Amazon, not available at the moment.
https://www.casefanatic.com/lenovo/cover-lenovo-zuk-z2-pro-tscase-two-tone-leather-side-flip-stand/

Looks great, feels and fits great, covers the device and has got a stand.

Then I bought the Brotect Air Glass flexible. Works for me
The TopAce TPU Case Crystal Clear I got also, very nice backcover!
And the Anker PowerPort+ 1 NT, which is also perfect for me.

But I found a better USB cable then the Anker Powerline.
The Belkin USB 3.1 C to USB A cable. Has got a great shielding, is very sturdy
but not really cheap.

Hi Guys, i was reading in this forum from some time. I realy like it. I want to ask if someone find any film cover (not the upper and lower "border painted" tempered glass) that covers the whole screen? every one i see does not cover the left and right borders. Thanks!

Screenprotector: BROTECT AirGlass flexible

bought here: https://www.amazon.de/dp/B01I8EQXAA/





(there are cutouts on the top speakers and the camera , I removed those after I took the pictures)

1) BIGGEST PROBLEM: See pictures.
The edges/borders of the screenprotector don't stick to the screen at all. Air all around the borders, which cannot be removed. (caused by the roundness of the screen). This will eventually result in debris underneath the edges. And this also creates ugly reflections.
I regret removing the original plastic screenprotector which was on the phone when I bought the phone.
Now I have 2 limiting factors at the borders of my screen:
- 1: screenprotector too small
- 2: screenprotector edges create 1mm extra reflection all around my screen due to not sticking to the screen

2) Totally not scratch resistant. Normal tempered glass screenprotectors provide a good scratch resistancy, but this one does not. I tested this on the cut-out part of the speakers on the top front. Without any pressure, when slightly scrubbing the screenprotector with a rather dull knife, the top layer of the screenprotector just becomes scraped off, and when doing a cutting move, I directly get deep cuts in the screenprotector.

3) The screenprotector is claimed to be anti-fingerprint, but that is not the case at all.
The fingerprints seem to be reflected a lot, which makes viewing the screen smudgy, not clear at all.
Rubbish, compared to several other screenprotectors I bought from for example "Omoton" (those really are anti-fingerprint / Hydrophobic / Oleophobic). This can't be seen on my pictures, because I took them after I cleaned the screenprotector.

4) Plastic feel. Fingers stick more to the screenprotector instead of gliding smoothly (like other real tempered glass screenprotectors) over the surface.

5) Extra issue: unlike other companies, there is nothing included to clean (wet clean, dry clean, dust remover) and no placement tape.

I agree with BenjieB on the curved edge screens.
I don't understand why companies have the tendency to create more and more smartphones with rounded screens. For me, this doesn't add anything to a phone, it just creates troubles with screenprotectors.
I think a tempered glass screenprotector for this phone would have to be made exacly with the same roundness on the edges.


Screenprotectors:
full covered


Those seem to have the potential of having a perfect fit:
- https://www.aliexpress.com/item/FUL...tector-hardness-premium-real/32784581027.html
- http://www.zukmobile.cc/lenovo-zuk-z2-pro-tempered-glass-film.html (made by ZUK, most chance of being perfect)

Some people have bad experience with those:
dongoo said:
I tried those full-screen-cover tempered glasses (with black borders). On the edges it just hides of course the 2.5D radius but not sticking to it. therefore there is a gap all around, where the dust can come in very quickly if I put the phone into my pocket. In my opinion this issue can only be sold if you use a kind of dual-layer case (like this: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/New...lt&btsid=5884bc91-45bf-46b7-9a57-8e09854f8dd0) which II don't like. Other then that you can see a kind of pattern of dots (I guess glue between the layers?) if seeing from some angle to the screen. Dots are small but on a full screen visible (distances ~4 mm)
Some people seem to like them (from topic: http://zukfans.eu/community/threads/zuk-z2-pro-case-awesome.142/):
Cookie4u said:
I have the fullcover glass (http://www.zukmobile.cc/lenovo-zuk-z2-pro-tempered-glass-film.html). I'm very happy with it because its "curved" like the device and you didn't see that there is a glass on the display.

Looks like the device itself ... Like without tempered glas. You will only see it around the earpiece and the camera. I'm very happy at all.
I am considering buying one of those from ZUK.


Case:
Bllosem Hybrid Dual Layer PC+TPU Full Body Shock Resistant Armour with Kickstand Function (Gray)




Bought here: https://www.amazon.de/dp/B01KF2YCB0/
= the same as in this topic: http://zukfans.eu/community/threads/zuk-z2-pro-case-awesome.142/

Really happy with this case:
+ light weight
+ tight fit, really hard to remove the case
+ rubber (black) parts have a good feel. sturdy enough to not become sloppy.
- the (gray) plastic part is just plastic: would have been better if this also had a rubber feel to it.

Hybrid Armor Stand Case Cover : http://www.ebay.com/itm/252589143173

1 Week delivery and it is indeed a great case :)

However, do not order the screen protector : Like most it's too small :(


Charger and cables I have ordered :

- Anker 1.8 meter USB Type C cable : https://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B01E9W8KYC/
- Anker PowerPort+1 18W : https://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B017XBDBI6/
Both work fine as a simple replacement of the ZUK charger :)

Two other items I haven't used yet :
- Anker PowerDrive+ 1 24W : https://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B010D75XZQ/ (Car charger)
- Anker 90 cm. USB Type C cable BLACK : https://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B01A6F3WHG/ (For around the PC)
- Anker 90 cm. USB Type C cable RED : https://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B01GN0M6NE/ (For in the car)


Aaaand that's all folks! :)

Hello guys. I bought too many screen protector for zuk z2 pro and none of them fit well. So, i bought a screen for another model. A5 2016 screen protector fit perfectly. I really recommend it.

I was in shopping and I measured on my cell phone and it fit perfectly, but I did not buy it because it was very expensive. I ordered the same through the internet. I'll post a photo as soon as I receive it.

Does anyone know which screenprotector is shipped with the phone ?

My phone was ordered @ Banggood.com and the screenprotector on the phone is 99% perfect fit. Any others from eBay for example are a lot smaller like you probably already noticed...

I believe it is sent from the factory, not for sale. I bought 3 different screen protector for z2 pro. None of them fit well. Try the gel screen protector for Samsung A5. It fit perfect

Do you have a picture with your screen protector on the phone? Very hard to find a good screen protector. Thanks

I bought the special-fit tempered glass for the phone, but it was too thick and wouldn't stay on, reducing touch sensitivity. I had to put the protective film back on, only now, it's all bubbly. :(

I'd like to know more about the Samsung A5 screen protection, like the brand and store of availability. Also, does it "sink" the fingerprint buttton and fail to register touch?

Have you receive it?

Enviado desde mi ZUK Z2121 mediante Tapatalk

I did not receive, the package was lost on delivery. The delivery service from my country was on strike. It's all a mess.

Yesterday I ordered 3 of these screen protector. By the research I have done, I have seen that they have quite a positive reputation :p

I bought this glass screen protector for A5 2016 but it's not the same I had seen in the mall, which fit perfectly. This one is horrible, I do not recommend that mark. The photos speak for themselves

What about an update of this thread ?
I am looking for a screen protection, no necessarily glass, I crached a bit the one provided with the phone and I'm going to remove it quite soon.
