standard Lenovo Rips Off Nokia Camera’s UI With the Vibe Z2

DSC05589Lenovo have a cool new phone called theĀ Vibe Z2, a new 6″ phablet with a 2K screen and an impossibly thin body, which is pretty awesome. What isn’t awesome however is the new camera app in the phone which is a blatant rip-off of the Nokia camera app for Windows Phone devices. Nokia Camera’s “advanced Pro mode” is based on a pop out of little sliders for all the controls, from white balance, to ISO and even focus; which is exactly what the new Lenovo camera has as can be seen below.

    FUCK LENOVO!, thats a steal!, this was one of my fears about Microsoft making their own phones, Lenovo is perhaps, one of the most important partners of M$ in the PC market is stealing this and I believe that dominant position probably makes them untouchable. Shame Lenovo, shame…

    this could be a licensing deal with MSFT, which now owns this UI. But seems fishy…
