Lenovo Phab2 Plus review


Lenovo is one of the best cell phone venders in India and furthermore claims to be the pioneer with regards to the online market. While the organization had an awesome 2016, it is finishing the year by propelling its new Phab2 arrangement in the nation.

In my initial introductions of the monster cell phone, I had recommended that the main cell phone that offers rivalry to the Phab2 is the Xiaomi Mi Max. So here is a more top to bottom survey of the Phab2 to check whether it is superior to its Chinese opponent's phablet advertising.

Assemble and Design: 7/10

Lenovo's cell phone division has grown up and has discovered that construct quality issues. Their spending offerings in K-arrangement have all ended up being very solid and well constructed. The Phab2 Plus gets a comparative treatment. It accompanies a metal unibody on the back and glass on the front which somewhat bends out around the edges, which is dependably a pleasant touch. It feels exceptionally strong and didn't hint at any twisting notwithstanding when I conveyed it my front pants stash. That is obviously, on the off chance that it fits your pocket. It feels colossal.


Presently I won't state that the bezels and the territory above and underneath the show are thin. In any case, it is obviously noticeable that the organization has attempted its best. Utilizing it with one hand is extremely troublesome, regardless of whether you have extensive hands. I had a go at utilizing it with one hand yet relatively every time my palm would touch the screen before my fingers. It could get baffling. It feels as though the finger taps are not enlisting. To put it plainly, you have to utilize two hands more often than not.


Other than that, I was very happy with the general plan and assemble quality. Lenovo has additionally tossed in chamfered edges around the metal edges.

Phab2 Plus is a gigantic telephone and notwithstanding Lenovo attempting its best to limit the impression with thin bezels and no abundance space above and underneath the show, despite everything it requires two hands to work. Additionally, there is a mode however that exclusive gives you a chance to move the numeric lockscreen's personal identification number keypad and the dial key to one side of the corner for better reach, as castigating the contracting the entire screen of the device.

Plunging into alternate components, the volume and power catches are on the correct which are somewhat level however feel strong. On the best is the 3.5mm sound jack, the SIM card/microSD card plate is on the left, and at the base is the microUSB port flanked by two barbecues, albeit just the correct one really has the speaker and isn't a stereo setup. Disgrace.

At the back is the double camera setup alongside the double LED glimmer and sensors. The entire camera gathering swells out a bit so it can get scratched effectively. Underneath that sits the unique mark scanner which is effortlessly open and works immediately.

Highlights: 7/10

The Phab2 Plus highlights a fundamentally the same as bundle as the Mi Max. There is a 6.4-inch Full high definition IPS LCD show. an octa-center Mediatek combined with 3GB random access memory and 32GB of inward stockpiling. The capacity is expandable and can acknowledge cards of up to 256GB in limit utilizing the half breed SIM opening. There is a unique finger impression scanner and Dolby Atmos sound innovation for improved sound understanding.

The cell phone accompanies a double camera setup where both offer 13MP determination with f/2.0 opening, a double tone light emtting diode streak, while on the front there is a 8MP camera with a gap and a light emitting diode streak. Concerning availability there is GPS/A-GPS, 4G bolster, Bluetooth v4.0, Wi-Fi, FM Radio and a microUSB.

Running on Android 6.0 Marshmallow, the cell phone gets its juice from a 4,050mAh battery.

Show: 7.5/10

Presently putting a huge show implies that it will assemble a great deal of consideration. It is a 6.4-inch IPS liquid crystal display board with a Full high definition determination, which means 344ppi of pixel thickness. It looks fresh and genuinely I think a 1080p determination on a 7 or even a 10-inch show is very great, however that is only my conviction. Lenovo claims the expansive size makes it incredible for media utilization. In any case, does it hit the nail on the head?

Well I was happy with the brilliance and the Phab2 Plus did genuinely great under the daylight. I didn't discover any issues when taking a gander at it from fluctuated edges, there was no shading shift. Shading generation is awesome and even the touch reaction was in order, well separated from the time when I utilized the handset with only one hand.
Lenovo offers a choice to control the shading temperature and the immersion of the show under its settings. This empowers you to have a cooler or hotter tone on the show and additionally increment the immersion to make hues fly out.

Programming: 7/10

Lenovo, dissimilar to other Chinese cell phone creators, has trimmed down its Vibe user interface throughout the years to make it more stock like. After the securing of Motorola, it has done as such considerably more. This makes it one zone where the experience on the Phab2 Plus varies from the Mi Max. While Xiaomi offers an intensely tweaked MIUI 8, the Phab2 Plus keeps running on Android 6.0 Marshamallow which is all stock with the exception of some custom symbols, gadgets and backdrops. There isn't a considerable measure of bloatware either. SyncIt and ShareIt are the main Lenovo applications, aside from which I saw Netflix pre-stacked for clients who jump at the chance to fling sit in front of the TV shows and motion pictures.

It runs genuinely smooth and didn't give me any real issues. I did however see one bug. Each time I woke up the show while playing a melody through a Bluetooth speaker, the music would skip for 2-3 seconds. Presently I do tune in to music by means of Bluetooth in my auto and at home so that spoiled some of my experience. Be that as it may it is a little issue and ought to be resolved through a snappy refresh.

I like stock Android, it's more advantageous and I don't need to scan for things as everything is the place it ought to be. In the meantime I like an outwardly engaging UI.

Execution: 6/10

The Phab2 Plus is controlled by a Mediatek octa-center chipset. There is a Mali T720 Graphic Processsing Unit on board alongside 3GB of random access memory. This mix is useful for everyday use like watching recordings, tuning in to music, checking sends, perusing, and so on. Gaming is by all accounts great on the huge screen albeit substantial recreations like Asphalt 8: Airborne seemed to battle with a couple of casing drops. It likewise warms up when playing asset hoarding diversions for broad periods.

Aside from gaming. I additionally saw that the handset warming up arbitrarily when not being used. One of the examples was the point at which I was utilizing a Jio SIM for tying.

Concerning crude engineered benchmarks, the Phab2 Plus was baffling. All the benchmark tests brought about numbers that were lower than most cell phones, including the Mi Max, in its value go. It scored 5342 in Ice Storm Extreme benchmark on 3D Mark and an unremarkable 3153 on the Work benchmark on PC Mark.

As far as call execution and quality, everything is in line. Information and Wi-Fi works immaculately, in spite of the fact that I couldn't make VoLTE calls through a Reliance Jio SIM. Presumably Lenovo hasn't initiated the element yet and would require a speedy refresh.

Like its numerous telephones, Lenovo has included Dolby Atmos for enhanced sound. While the amplifier is decent and boisterous, it does not have a punch as it feels too sharp. Utilizing headphones, you can feel the distinction when utilizing the Dolby Atmos settings. There are distinctive condition settings that you can play with which is decent to have.

Camera: 6.5/10

The Lenovo Phab2 Plus highlights a double 13MP camera setup at the back alongside laser auto-center, stage identification auto-center (PDAF), a f/2.0 opening and a double light emitting diode streak. As indicated by the organization the extra camera sensor takes into account estimating profundity. At the front there is a 8MP camera with a f/2.2 opening and a solitary light emitting diode streak.


The photo quality is normal and utilizing HDR mode offered better differentiation and immersion. General hues are somewhat unbiased and I saw certain photos ended up being cloudy. Centering speeds are simply alright and pictures are taken rapidly, despite the fact that slack is observable over and over, uniquely with indoor and low light shots.

The application is genuinely straightforward, you get all the typical modes like manual, display, selfie, night et cetera. The double camera obviously causes you to show signs of improvement profundity in your photos and on account of refocusing you can choose what you need in center sometime later. It doesn't work exceptionally well and I think Lenovo needs to settle that. Check the photo of the two leaves I've taken with the double camera mode in which I have utilized the refocusing highlight. It just arbitrarily de-centers around the fundamental subject.

At that point there is the AR mode which superimposes characters like a feline or a pooch to your photo. It is very gimmicky and I didn't discover any point having it. Indeed a pack of gadgets, particularly Sony Xperia cell phones, have been accompanying such an element for a considerable length of time.

Both front and back cameras can shoot 1080p recordings which are again simply normal.
I trust the organization has a great deal of work to do on the camera calculations in the event that they need to offer the cell phone with camera as one of the USPs.

Battery: 6.5/10

The battery is appraised at 4,050mAh. This makes it as large as what Xiaomi utilizes on the Note 3 of Redmi while the Mi Max gets a 4,850mAh unit. A huge screen telephone merits a long battery life, yet the one on the Lenovo Phab2 Plus didn't great me. I figured out how to draw near to an entire day's charge while utilizing it as my essential gadget. Overwhelming utilization would complete the battery squeeze before my work day. The Work Battery life test benchmark on PC Mark test gave us 7 hours and 30 minutes which is no place near the Mi Max which was near 16 hours! The fundamental guilty party could be the less power proficient MediaTek chipset. This additionally implies it doesn't bolster any kind of quick charging which is again frustrating.

Decision and Price in India

The Phab2 Plus is a better than average media-driven gadget at its cost of Rs 14,999.
