Lenovo has launched a new Smartphone and due to its large display of 6.4 inches, it can also be classified as a phablet.
This phone was launched in India on December 09, 2016 and available exclusively on Flipkart at a price of INR 11,999.
In a matter of just one day, Lenovo has sold more than 1 Lakh Phab 2 via Flipkart and as I write this review post, it currently shows a coming soon message on Flipkart.
Lenovo Phab 2 Pros
There are 11 advantages of this phablet.
|1||Display||We have a gigantic display which measures at 6.44 inches with HD resolution at 229 ppi as pixel density. It is the only large screen phablet in this price range with a) enormous battery and b) 13 megapixel camera.|
|2||Ultra Selling Point||Cheapest device with a screen size of more than 6 inches with great features.|
|3||Metal Built||Unlike many handset in this price group, Phab 2 comes with a full metallic body design and in the Gray colour, it looks even more dashing.|
|4||4G VoLTE||Finally, Lenovo has released a Voice over LTE compatible phone which implies to its ability to work on Reliance Jio SIM.|
|5||Battery||It is spotted with a massive 4,050 mAh battery and was also required as it sports a big screen and is powered by a powerful processor as well, both demands a good battery backup, nicely done Lenovo.|
|6||Camera||We have a 13 MP main and 5 MP selfie camera and both produces a magnify images and videos. Again, not many mobile in this price range has such great cameras.|
|7||Processor||According to many experts, Phab 2 is the best gaming Smartphone in its price group thanks to the Mali-T720 MP graphics but we all know that for a high-end games, powerful processor is required and the company has not disappointed at all. They have used a MediaTek MT8735, 64 bit, Quad core processor that clock at a speed of 1.3 GHz, Lenovo has also used ARM’s Cortex A53 to further enhance the multi-tasking experience.|
|8||RAM||More powerful the GPU and CPU is, more RAM is needed to work on a high-end application, Phab 2 is seen with a 2 GB of Random Access Memory and that’s more than enough.|
|9||OS||It boots on the latest Android v6.0 (Marshmallow) with a layer of their own custom User Interface (UI) called Vibe UI, those who have used any of their mobile with the same interface would be keen to get their hands on this device. It adds-on that missing chilling animated effect where Android lacks.|
|10||Dolby||Just like every other Lenovo phone, this is also spotted with a Dolby Atmos Audio feature, something which is very unique to Lenovo mobiles. Good for music lovers as the sound from earphones and loudspeaker will be much cleaner and in-depth and an ordinary device.|
|11||Price||It makes it way to the cheapest large-screen mobile with a) 13 MP camera, b) enormous battery, c) most powerful processors.|
Lenovo Phab 2 Cons
As for the disadvantages, there are 4 reasons not to buy this phablet.
|1||Fingerprint Scanner||It lacks this security/privacy feature and is quite a sad thing.|
|2||Weight||The large display and metal built has unsurprisingly added an extra 50 grams. It will weight 225 grams and is quite heavy.|
|3||NFC||There is also no NFC which means you have to rely on Bluetooth.|
|4||Number of Slot||There are only 2 slots and that means in order to expand the memory using a microSD card, you have to surrender the 2nd SIM.|
As we can see, its missing out on those specs which are actually hard to find in a budget-friendly phone and passes all the test that makes it a good deal at the offering price.
