Phab or drab? 6.8-inch Lenovo Phab Plus is one supersize smartphone (hands-on) - Pocket-lint


The Lenovo Phab Plus, as its name suggests, doesn't shy away one bit from maximising on phablet scale. Make no bones about it: this 6.8-inch phablet-phone

Lenovo Phab Plus. Первый взгляд


Семидюймовый (6.8 дюйма) гибрид смартфона и планшета с FHD-разрешением, IPS-матрицей, чипсетом Qualcomm Snapdragon 615, 32 ГБ внутренней памяти, 2 ГБ оперативной и стоимостью в 20 000 рублей

В рознице Lenovo Phab Plus продается за 20 000 рублей. На мой взгляд, перед нами крепкий середнячок во всех смыслах: средние характеристики за среднюю же цену. И на самом деле, у Lenovo получилось отличное предложение, ведь средние ТХ в 2015 году - это...

Lenovo PHAB Plus Review


The Lenovo PHAB Plus is a 6.8-inch phablet monster that's priced inexpensively. Now that it's here in the flesh, can it still deliver the same level of intrigue?...

Affordable, $300 cost ; Accurate display colors ; Useful one-handed mode ; Mostly stock Android experience

Terrible camera performance ; Extremely weak brightness output makes the screen unviewable outdoors ; No support for CDMA networks ; Unimpressive battery life for such a big device

Currently, Lenovo doesn’t have any plans on selling the PHAB Plus through official channels here in the US, but it’s still an option to import for something that costs around $300 for an unlocked, dual-SIMed device. With a nice metal construction,...

Lenovo Phab Plus #ExpressReview: Strictly for entertainment


Given the 6.8-inch screen size and the Rs 17,999 price-tag, the Lenovo Phab Plus is as close as you can get to tablet territory.

Lenovo Phab Plus Review


With the launch of the Lenovo Phab Plus, we've clearly reached peak phablet. A phablet too has a reasonable limit to the size and the Phab Plus clearly surpasses that. Lenovo launched its bizarre smartphone – tablet hybrid a while back and here's our...

Build; Battery Life; Camera

Hardware; Software Optimization; Price

The Lenovo Phab Plus is a strange amalgam of a tablet and a smartphone. A device that straddles two worlds but doesn’t quite fit in either, ending up in an existential crisis about its identity and purpose. Indeed, the device isn’t a very good tablet...

Lenovo Phab Plus Review


Metal body ; Impressive camera ; Good performance ; Good battery life

Confusing software enhancements ; MicroSD and second SIM share a slot ; Awkward to hold and carry

The Lenovo Phab Plus sits in a class of its own at the moment. 7-inch Android tablets with voice calling all seem to be clustered at a lower price point and offer far worse specifications for less money. Lenovo is taking a chance with what seems like a...
