After a series of renders and leaks, Lenovo has finally unveiled its Lenovo Z5 smartphone in China. Unlike its renders that showcased an all-screen design, the Z5 disappointed many when it eventually embraced notch. The company did not reveal any information concerning Lenovo Z5’s launch in regions outside China, but we can expect the phone to debut in India soon, thanks to our growing smartphone market. Now that the Lenovo Z5 no more under the rumour tag, we are bound to compare it with other devices to check how it fairs in that arena. Today’s comparison includes Lenovo Z5, Moto G6, and the Nokia X6.

The Moto G6, on the other hand, does not have a notch on the front panel. It comes with a 5.7-inch Max Vision IPS display on the front with 1080 x 2160 Full HD+ resolution and an 18:9 aspect ratio. There is Corning Gorilla Glass 3 layer on top for protection. On the contrary, the Nokia X6 packs a 5.8-inch Full HD+ IPS LCD screen bearing 2280×1080 pixels resolution with 2.5D curved glass and 19:9 aspect ratio.
In this segment, both the Lenovo Z5 and Nokia X6 come close with their big screen sizes and 19:9 aspect ratios. The Moto G6 lags behind.
Lenovo Z5, Moto G6, Nokia X6: Performance, Battery
The Lenovo Z5 is powered by a Snapdragon 636 chipset clubbed with 6GB of RAM and 64GB/128GB of built-in storage, as per the variant. The phone runs Android 8.1 Oreo-based ZUI 4.0 out-of-the-box. A 3300mAh battery backs the device with 18W fast charging support.
The Moto G6 comes powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 SoC clocked at 1.8 GHz with an Adreno 506 GPU. It packs 3GB/4GB RAM and 32GB/64GB internal storage, depending on the variant. It is backed by a 3000mAh battery with 15W TurboPower fast charging. On the software front, the phone runs Android 8.0 Oreo.
Powering the Nokia X6 is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 octa-core SoC coupled with an Adreno 509 GPU. The phone comes with 4GB/6GB of RAM with 32GB/64GB internal storage, based on the variant. It runs Android 8.0 Oreo and is backed by a 3060mAh battery with support for Quick Charge 3.0.
Yet again, both Lenovo Z5 and Nokia X6 turn up as close competitors with same chipsets. However, we think that the Nokia X6 gets an edge over the Lenovo Z5 when it comes to steady software updates. Nokia holds a great reputation for offering regular updates while Lenovo suffers in that segment. The Moto G6 does not even come close to the other two phones in the comparison.

Going by the specs and features, both the Lenovo Z5 and Nokia X6 are quite similar while the Moto G6 lags behind majorly with its underpowered specs. Both the Lenovo Z5 and Nokia X6 are yet to launch in India, which means if you are in a hurry to buy a new smartphone then you don’t currently have them as your go-to options.
