The Lenovo Phab2 Plus does not pack Google's Project Tango technology (found in the Phab2 Pro) but it is an affordable Android phone that brings some augmented reality tricks.
The Phab2 Plus boasts two rear 13-megapixels cameras with f/1.8 aperture and features Fujitsu Milbeaut, the advanced image processing software found in Leica cameras.
This combination allows the Phab2 Plus render a high photo quality with great detail even in situations of low light, showing high contrast, vibrant and natural colors. The technology also allows great detail in shaded areas and a blurred background that makes main objects protrude further.
Augmented reality on the Lenovo Phab2 Plus comes in the form of a special-effects mode, which allows you to add different objects and effects to photos and videos shot with the camera. This phone's camera also lets you focus photos after they have been taken and allows you to swap the background of the scene.
The Lenovo Phab2 Plus adds sound technology from Dolby Atmos, promising a pleasant surround-sound experience. It has a 6.4-inch Full HD screen with a 2.5D curved glass, a fingerprint scan on the back and runs Android Marshmallow.
The Phab2 Plus runs on a MediaTek MTK-8783 octa-core processor; has 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage and the possibility to expand it up to 128GB through a microSD chip. Its front camera has an 8-megapixel sensor, runs radio FM and has a 4,050mAh battery that promises a full day of use on one charge.
Price and availability
The Lenovo Phab2 Plus will be sold at $299 and it will be available worldwide in September.
The Lenovo Phab2 Plus has everything needed to offer a pretty good experience. However, it's huge, 6.4-inch screen makes it a little too big for an average user and its processor is sluggish when you try to use several apps at a time.
Although Lenovo promises that its double rear camera allows very good photos, this is not the first cell to allow certain features, including focus after shooting them or integrate different effects on photos. We will be putting this phone to test in order to bring you more details about its performance. The good news is that it is a phone with good specs at a relatively low price of $299.
