When nothing seem to stopping Redmi Note 3 then Lenovo Introduced its previous year Flagship Killer in India Known to be ZUK Z1 as a new threat to Redmi Note 3.

The Redmi Note 3 display offers 178-degree viewing angle with Sunlight display tech and night mode. Lenovo ZUK Z1 boasts of anti-fingerprint coating, display polariser coating and GFF whole-bonding process.
While we can say that Lenovo Zuk Z1 will give you much better experience regarding the Display & Viewing angles due to 1500:1 contrast ratio and 100 percent NTSC color gamut but Redmi Note 3 is no less because of it Sunlight Display.
Processor [Zuk Z1 vs Note 3]
This is seems to be only part where the Zuk Z1 left behind from Redmi Note 3, Lenovo ZUK Z1 comes powered by a 2.5GHz Outdated Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor but then to its quite capable of everything and if we talked about the Redmi Note 3 its comes with Qualcomm Snapdragon 650 CPU and better 510 aderno Graphics for gaming and daily tasking.
Camera [Zuk Z1 vs Note 3]
There is a stiff competition in this category. Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 sports a 16-megapixel rear-facing camera with PDAF, dual-tone LED flash, dual ISP and HDR and a 5MP front-snapper with 36 smart beauty profiles for better selfies.
Lenovo ZUK Z1 comes with a 13-megapixel Sony EXMOR RS sensor with 1.2µm, dual LED flash, OIS, 5-physical lens and f/2.2 aperture. On the front side of the device, there is an 8MP snapper with 1.4µm pixel, OV8865 sensor equipped with OMniBSI-1 technology.
Well Quite Honestly, Redmi Note 3 camera is not upto to the mark whereas Zuk Z1 camera comes with reliable Sony Sensors an OIS which is rarely seen in Budget segment phone.
Battery [Zuk Z1 vs Note 3]
Here both of devices come head to head with over 4000mAh power house. Lenovo ZUK Z1 appears to have the biggest battery, of 4,100mAh, which the company claims to offer up to 38 hours of 4G talk time. Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 also seems to have an almost identical battery unit of 4,050mAh, which according to the company can last up to 14 hours on GPS navigation. So its very hard to make out one clear winner.
Storage and Software [Zuk Z1 vs Note 3]
The Lenovo Zuk Z1 paired with 3GB RAM and 64GB storage being the highest over Redmi Note 3 merge with 3GB and 32 GB Storage with Hybrid micro SD card support is a let-down and here ZUK Z1 is a clear winner with 64GB Storage and dual sim.
All two phones are based on Google's Android platform, but Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 runs its own MIUI 7 on top of it and Lenovo ZUK Z1 has Cyanogen OS 12.1. I’ll mostly prefer MIUI on top of CM 12.
Add-ons [Zuk Z1 vs Note 3]
Lenovo ZUK Z1 and Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 both come with fingerprint scanners for security, while Redmi Note 3 has in back and Zuk Z1 has in front which adds more charms to it design.
The ZUK Z1 comes with latest industry-standard USB Type-C connector, which throws in some extra value. Here one thing that can act as a blunder for ZUK Z1 is that it comes with 4G LTE but it does not support band 5 which means that it would not be able to run Reliance jio 4G services while Note 3 comes with all network support.
Here the Lenovo ZUK Z1 is being more value for money device considering the fact that it has been the Flagship device for previous year! And has lot more features like OIS, USB Type-C etc and if we talk about more powerful Smartphone from these then there is no denying that Redmi Note 3 comes as a clear winner and if you like MIUI then go ahead with Redmi Note 3.
