Bye this phone if you need a phone for productivity. I own a Samsung Note 5 and a Lenovo Phab 2 Plus. The Phab 2 Plus is now my main phone. I travelled for a month and decided not to carry my laptop and the Phab 2 successfully replaced my laptop.
If you need a phone for productivity do not think twice, just buy it!
Tamer Samir, 21 Jun 2017anybody can tell me if it dual active sim card or not ?
The second SIM slot of this dual SIM phone accepts either a micro SIM card or a microSD memory card. If you are using 2 SIM cards, you will not be able to expand the phone's memory using a microSD memory card.
Tamer Samir - Hope you know the hacking trick for this, you can use MicroSD and Dual Sim at the same time, but dont know how far this model will accept.
I was hoping to buy this phone until I noticed that it has a non-removable battery. I will not buy a locked phone nor one with a non-removable battery. After 8+ years I am still using my old Samsung clamshell. I bought it unlocked and replaaced the battery once. I LOVE IT.
After two weeks of use I can comfortably recommend this mammoth phone to anyone. I cannot believe Kenobi can offer such a beast at that price range. The screen is amazing, the Dolby sound is extra awesome, you just need to download the Microsoft productivity apps and you will have the true and genuine Note phone. I cannot wait for the Nougat update, or the Phab 3 Plus!
WHilst this is a cheap phone, it is not terrible. The biggest issue with it is no updates ...anything and absolutely no support. If you go to Lenovo there is no mention of it,,i mean at all..except in the forums where a few people ask "where is the update" or issues with a speaker. There is no capacity to check for software updates so you are stuck with what it comes with. Android 6. At least being able to check for an update meant you could hold out for a surprise. So in short, it was released as is and that is the end of the story. If you want to improve it with an OTA update forget it..!!
I wonder before releasing this phablet, did Lenovo tested the camera? Just Terrible!

File transfer to SD card from Internal Memory is not available. can any one help
In the Quick Start Guide, there are two speakers where as only one speaker(right) is working.
Ive had this phone for 3 months and Im very disapointed... It cracked in the first drop from 2 feet high, no protection sold due to its size, battery dosnt charge fast enough to match the velocity at which the phone uses it... for instance i charge it to 100% yesturday in the morning and barely opened it 2 or 3 times in the day and now ith has 23%... If I use it battery dosnt last trough the day, it wont even get to the evening or night... no support of Lenovo in Mexico, even though one factory and big distribution center is on my city... Got it for $225.00 on a Sale and teach me that cheap is a synonim of bad quality... I have been using Iphone since 2010 and never had adventured to android, now I am regreting of my decision and thinking seriously for Iphone again or going for Samsung expecting that the price justify the quality of it...
i have got it like 6 weeks back.
for battery, not bad.
sound volume level is very low even with doulby activation.
processor is not fast as expected from its price.
screen is great.
some applications can't be installed despite it is not very old !
camera can be far better
worst thing is that many applications stops at the sudden with very ugly comment "unfortunately not working". this is not fare and not promising.
if i am 6 weeks back i would not pay such amount for this device.
shall i clear the cashe and data every day to keep applications on my device.
not advising to purchase it
My opinion about this phone
Display - good
Performance - sometime it heats while on internet
Camera - ok but cant take video in night coz of no flashlight works, i speak with
Customer care its a software issue cant resolve
Weight - its ok to handle
From my view dont purchase this phablet and if need go for xioami
Anybody help me to resolve this problem about flashlight not working while taking video.
Torn between two phablets
Lenovo phab2 plus or huawei note 8 .. which one is the best???
