Lenovo Phab Plus Features Atypical Conventional Design
Lenovo’s latest mobile phone is buried inside a tablet. Yes, the Lenovo Phab Plus may be huge, but for those who spend a lot of their time watching videos, movies or playing games on their phones rather than making voice calls, it might just be the right device for them. Judging from the way Lenovo’s marketing stresses on the screen size and the quality of the audio, it is safe to say this is an unrivaled entertainment centered device.
With no similar devices on the market, what Lenovo is attempting is akin to creating its own niche, a market for hybrid devices that offer both voice calling and tablet capabilities.
At 6.8-inches, and with little space on the sides, it is not as big as most tablets, but is perhaps the biggest size phone. It is available in silver, gold and grey, and has a flat back, curved sides and antenna lines much like the iPhone 6.
Being an android device, though, a lot more is different. The screen size, for one, has much higher proportion to the surrounding plastic. The status LED is hidden in the earpiece grille and not easily visible unless one looks at the phone head on. The upper rear where the loudspeaker is and the volume and power buttons aren’t typical of the conventional designs. The primary camera and the dual LED flash are different from the traditional designs one might be used to. Specifications include:
Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor, with 8 cores at 1.5 GHz
2GB RAM and 32GB storage
MicroSD card support of up to 64 GB
1080×1920 resolution screen
13 megapixel front and 5 megapixel back cameras
3,500mAh non-removable battery, with 24-hour talk time and 20 day standby time
4G access through both sim slots, and 802.11 ac standard Wi-Fi
Runs on Android 5.0.2
Phab Plus also has a tray on the left that can hold a micro sim, and either another Nano-sim or MicroSD card.
