For sure, you won’t miss it. The Lenovo Phab Plus is a ubiquitous device with its 6.8-inch screen. The introduction of the Phab Plus is a welcome development as the gadget provides an alternative for users who get tired of carrying their laptops or even tablets in their daily grind that has been exacerbated by the monstrous traffic jams.
At the same time, do not forget the Phab Plus is also a smartphone with a 1080p display, powered by a Snapdragon 615 processor and a huge 2GB RAM with 32GB expandable storage. For the photo and selfie addicts, the Phab Plus is a winner with its 13-megapixel rear camera that enables you to pose wacky, serious and casual modes. It’s backed by a 4500mAh battery.
Using on-screen navigation buttons, the Phab Plus has a SIM and micro SD card tray that can accommodate a micro SIM (SIM Slot 1) and nano SIM (SIM Slot 2). Moreover, the second SIM slot can also function as the microSD card slot which enables you to boost storage capacity.
You will develop a good first impression on the Phab Plus with its metal unibody. Lenovo made a good move in making the edges round. This allows you good handling and appreciate the nice design at the same time.
Although it is slim at 7.6mm, the Phab Plus is a bit heavy at 229g. The result-you are going to use a tall and wide gadget that will require you to use your two hands. That is going to be one of the challenges except if you have big hands like Lebron James or Tim Duncan.
Furthermore, it is irritating and outrageous to use the Phab Plus for calls because of its huge size. The remedy is to use your personal headset. Also remember that you always put the Phab Plus in a bag instead of your trousers pocket as it will stick out.
Having a1.0 cc Sound Chamber as loudspeaker, a user is guaranteed of experiencing loud and crisp sounds with a good balance of bass. By turning on the Dolby Atmos sound technology, you are guaranteed of a higher quality sound. Just go to YouTube and try it out. The writer played the musical classics such as The Sound of Music, Fiddler on the Roof and My Fair Lady. It was a blast listening to the golden voices of Julie Andrews and the Von Trapp children.
On the downside, the position of the speaker allows itself to be easily muffled when placed flat on its back. Make sure you prop it up or put it face down.
Above all, the Phab Plus is a lovely multimedia device. Moreover, it functions as a useful digital notepad. Just bring a portable keyboard to make the job easier. If your an audiophile, the loudspeaker gives a good sound for a mobile device.
