Lenovo launched the Phab 2 Plus in India on Tuesday, with the aim of ending Xiaomi Mi Max’s monopoly in the market for smartphones with huge screens. Both the ultra-large screen phablets are quite similar at first look, with their metal bodies and thin bezels around the display, but there are subtle differences between the two that make them quite distinct from each other.
For example, people more interested in photography would lean towards the Lenovo Phab 2 Plus for its dual rear cameras, while the Xiaomi handset would be automatic choice for those who want to use their smartphone as a remote control thanks to its IR capabilities.
