The Zync Cloud Z5 was launched in October last year with an MRP of Rs. 11,490. However, the device is available for Rs. 9,490 at the online stores. In our detailed review, the Cloud Z5 had secured a 3 out of 5 rating, with its large display, solid battery life, and decent camera, coupled with its affordable pricing its highlights, and the display's low-resolution, performance lag with heavy multitasking, and bulky form factor its low points.
Despite the addition of a dual-core CPU on the Zync Cloud Z5, 512MB of RAM seems a bit less. Whether the CPU enhancement will address the issue of lags is something we will comment once we get some hands on with the phablet.
The Zync Cloud Z5 dual-core is set to compete against the likes of other budget phablets in the market such as the Micromax A100 Superfone Canvas, Micromax A110 Superfone Canvas 2, Spice Stellar Horizon Mi-500 and iBall Andi 5c.
