Lenovo is steadily expanding its Phab series of smartphones. Rather than spamming the market with a hundred variants, the company has only just launched the successor to last year's Phab Plus (Review). We felt that phone had great potential as a media consumption device but its size made it incredibly awkward to carry, even if you have abnormally large hands.

This year, we have the Phab 2 Plus, which was announced as part of a trio including the Phab 2 and Phab 2 Pro. The Plus variant is the only one to make it to India so far, and it serves as a successor to the existing Phab Plus. With more manageable dimensions this time around, the highlight feature here appears to be a dual-camera setup. At Rs. 14,999, the Lenovo Phab 2 Plus locks horns with Xiaomi’s Mi Max (Review), which is pretty much the only other model in this price segment with similar features.

With the Mi Max being perpetually out of stock everywhere, is Lenovo’s offering a viable alternative? Let’s find out.

Lenovo Phab 2 Plus Summary

The Lenovo Phab 2 Plus is the latest big-screened smartphone from the Chinese mobile maker. It boasts of a 6.4-inch full-HD display with Gorilla Glass and a full-metal body, which makes it sturdy. The size and weight of the phone makes it cumbersome to carry around as it doesn’t sit well in your pocket. The phone is powered by a MediaTek MT8783 SoC with 3GB RAM and 32GB of storage. It also supports 4G LTE on Indian bands along with VoLTE support. The dual-camera setup manages good macros but landscapes tend to lack detail and low-light shots aren’t very good. The AR features in the phone also come across as gimmicky. Battery life is good but we expected better as the phone just about lasts you day or even less. Overall, for a big screen phone, the Xiaomi Mi Max offers a better value proposition at the same price as it offers better battery life and CPU performance.
