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.

Almost got it, EXCEPT no expandable memory.

A 6.0" 1440p screen is doing it right (4k is overkill and perhaps unecessary), probably gives it some functional and noticeable clarity/crisp in fine texts.

The 4,000mAH battery will do this well too, with all that screen real estate, it's nice to have a battery that should be able to keep up.

However, what makes this a deal breaker to me is no expandable memory; there's no microsdhc slot!
I could live with non-user-replaceable battery(usually because the battery should last at least 2 years before being worn out, and also because "where there's a will, there's a way" to replace it).

But no microsdhc slot? C'mon, you're stuck with a measly 32gb, as apps and app data only gets bigger (my lynda and other course apps let me download lessons for offline viewing but they take up a ton of memory). I wanted to get a Sony Xperia Z Ultra, but it has a sucky camera + no flash (I use the flash for a flashlight all the time), BUT, it at least has expandable memory so I can have more room to store stuff.

Be glad it runs Android. iOS doesn't even have USB OTG, and current "solutions" involve paying $100+ for a measly dog slow USB2 flash drive with a MFi-certified Lightning connector and accompanying craptastic frontend apps.

Buy a real flashlight instead. Cheaper, brighter, won't cause issues on your phone in extended use.

How about no. I'm with the first guy. I use my phone as a flashlight all the time too. You really expect me to carry my phone, keys, wallet, and a flashlight? F that.

In fact, Super-Bright LED Flashlight has 100,000,000 - 500,000,000 install.

I carry all of the above, plus a folding paper fan, external battery charger, micro-USB cable, mini notebook and pen, and some mints. Flashlight's on a belt holster.

If I want "Super-Bright LED Flashlight", I'm not cranking the LED flash on my phone to the maximum - I'm using a Nitecore EA4 instead.
