    What's more? You can also customise these quick shortcuts depending on your requirement by changing the switching sequence in ‘Quick Switch Panel' option hidden under settings.

    Notification LED

    The notification LED on the Z2 Plus can be customised to notify you about different messages you receive on your smartphone. For instance, it can be customised to light up when the device is charging to indicate the same.

    By default, the notification LED on the Z2 Plus is turned off but you can turn it on from the Notification Settings.

    Double tap to wake up

    One of the coolest feature present in the Z2 Plus is the ‘double to wake up' option. This feature allows you to wake your phone from sleep without even touching the power button. As the name suggests, all you have to do is double-tap on the screen to wake up.


    The smartphone has a dedicated pedometer inside, which keeps track of activities like user's step count, distance travelled, calories burnt, and more.  All the details of these activities will be reflected on the U-Health app pre-installed on the smartphone.

    Rotatable Home screen

    Previously, only a few apps offered support for landscape mode.However, thanks to advancements in the OS, the auto-rotate mode is now functional system-wide including the home-screen. If you ever need to use it, just enable the auto rotation mode in the quick switch panel.

    Long screenshot

    One of the nicest features in the Lenovo Z2 Plus is its ability to capture long screenshots. In case you want a screenshot of a scrollable page, this feature may come in very handy.

    To use this feature, visit the scrollable page you intend to capture and hold the power + volume down button. You'll see a "click to start the long screenshot" message with an inverted triangle above it, click on it and the screenshot will be captured automatically.

    Night Mode

    In order to protect your eyes from blue light during night, the Lenovo Z2 Plus offers a night mode which adds a blue light filter to the screen to reduce the intensity of bright light.

    Prevent Pocket Dials

    Often, accidental movements that happen inside the pocket lead to dialling numbers. In order to prevent this from happening, the smartphone offers a ‘prevent pocket-dialing' mode which, as the name suggests, puts a stop to unwanted clicks (when inside the pocket).
