Meet the Phab Plus from Lenovo. A Phablet that comes with a 6.8″ 1080p display along with 2GB of RAM & a Qualcomm 615 processor. The right package for someone who is looking for a large screen device for media consumption but not limited to a 5.5″ Phablet. Also for someone who is not looking to purchase a costly tablet just for browsing the web & watching movies.

[quote align=’right’] A product that’s smartly categorized between the Smartphone & the Tablet. [/quote]We have been testing this new device from Lenovo from the past few weeks & have had a different experience. There’s nothing new in terms of the design, features when compared to another Android device. But the way the product is positioned, between the Smartphone and a Tablet, it gives a different perspective and an interest to use it. The device was announced in IFA & is going to be launched in India soon though the price is not available yet.

While using the device for a few weeks, we did find that the weight is not high considering 220 grams for such a large device while the design did stand out.

The device does feature a very sleek design with a metallic body that feels great while using it.

As mentioned earlier, we have been testing the Phab from a few weeks & performed different activities on the device. Here are a few things that we liked about this device, and a few which we didn’t.

What we Liked:

  • Browsing the Internet
  • Upload an image on Social Media
  • Watch YouTube Videos in HD
  • Watching a movie
  • One-Handed Mode

What we didn’t Like:

  • Listened to music
  • Making voice calls [Not comfortable without earphones]
  • Does not fit in the Pocket

Following are few of the photos of this device that can give you a Physical Overview of the same.

The device does look stylish when you hold it & does stand out but what matters overall is the price at which it will be launched. Internationally the device is priced between $279 & $299 which comes to around Rs 20,000 & we hope that’s the price at which Lenovo should be launching this product here in India.

    Yes it is big!!! But in my view this is one of the best thing ever happened to a smartphone.. a bold new step…..bravo Lenovo. Already available on Amazon at Rs. 19000/-. price expected to settled down between 15-17 K in next couple of weeks. And when that happens, it would be a hot selling among urban young guns and tech crazy gizmo loving people like myself.
