The Vibe Z2 Pro should boast impressive battery life given its massive battery

LG may have been one of the first to market a QHD smartphone, but Lenovo is looking to crush all competitors with its new Vibe Z2 Pro.
 
The Vibe Z2 Pro features a massive 6” display — which is QHD of course — and a 2.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor, 3GB of RAM, and 32GB of storage. For those that wish to add additional storage, you’ll be disappointed to know that a microSD isn’t included.
 
The smartphone’s metal body does, however, manage to cram in a 16MP rear camera with optical image stabilization and a dual-LED flash along with dual micro-SIM slots. Also housed within the Vibe Z2 Pro’s chassis is a whopping 4,000 mAh battery to feed the monstrous display and speedy chipset. For comparison, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and LG G3 feature battery capacities of 3,200 mAh and 3,000 mAh respectively.

 
The Vibe Z2 Pro will be available in black, gold, and white; and it will launch next month. Given Lenovo’s reluctance to bring its smartphones to the U.S., we unfortunately won’t be seeing this one on our shores — Lenovo has Motorola to cater to our market.

Because for an LCD to have image retention, it must be the absolute poorest quality panel imaginable.

Because image retention is a defect and shouldn't happen in the first place? I count hundreds of products across every major product category suffering from such a "defect".

Spinning this in Reclaimer77-fashion:

LG's displays have IR.
Samsung's displays do not have IR.
Therefore LG's products are poor quality.

Natch, testerguy3, that is fundamentally wrong.

The last time I saw image retention in an LCD panel, was like 13 years ago.

Modern LCD's built to any kind of quality standards, simply do NOT have image retention issues.

And this isn't a case of a few people having it. The ENTIRE line of Thinkpads has the same LCD from the same OEM, most of them having the IR issue.

Does this mean I think Lenovo is cheap crap? Nope. It just means they went with an entirely substandard LCD panel for these Thinkpads. You're an idiot if you think otherwise.

Proof?
