[deleted post]Its not a issue. One is microphone and another is loud speaker
I bought lenovo phab 2 plus

I am planing to import lenovo phab 2 plus from India. can somebody from India tell me about the supported languages in the phab2 plus who purchase it from Amazon India? is Arabic Language supported? Arabic as OS Language and keyboard language. i can download a keyboard from play store but i want to know about OS language as well. thanks in advance for whose helping me in this mater.
is lenovo phab 2 plus heating while using
most lenovo phones get over heated while using???
Fast charging should have been included for sure & 6 inch would have been enough to be so called phab. The prime embarrasment is not having fast charging support!

Day 2 of use - the home screen icons are back! Like after the 5th restart. Now they seem to be permanent, as they havent gone again. The touch is really good, soft and accurate, def. better than mi max. Battery is running for 2 days on normal use. Fingerprint sensor is accurate and fast. Btw people in office thought its a 3 times as expensive phone basis its looks! They were shocked to hear its price. Mi max weight and thickness is less however. I think the dual cameras at the back has led to more thickness for Lenovo. But thats no biggie for me, as the looks are more premium.
I'm using this for a day, as a secondary phone (for video etc.). I really am crazy about phones, with my primary driver being S7 Edge. Other phones i have are Note 5, Iphone 6 Plus, Sony XA Ultra, LG G4 (my favourite), Lenovo Phab Plus, Lenovo Phab (2 of them!), Xiaomi Mi Max (again 2), Tab S8.4, Tab S10.5, HTC One M9 Plus, and have used and sold countless others (Note 2, Note 3, HTC One M7, HTC Desire 816, Moto X Play, Samsung A3, A5, Moto G 1st Gen, Asus Zenphone 6, Iphone 5C, Sony Z Ultra (2 of them!), LG G4 and Lenovo Phab Plus etc. (bought them again!) over the years. Must have missed out on a few others, and tabs too. So, my review on the Lenovo Phab 2 Plus:
Nice build quality (the reason i have so many Lenovo phablets, build quality vs price is good)
Premium earphones (JBL)
Decent optics / cameras both back and front (total 3 of them!)
Selfie light in front
Running smoothly - i guess even though its Mediatek, the UI is barebones, so not much power required to run it
Premium metal feel (Gold looks great!, i try to buy this color for every phone)
Nice screen (Lenovo screens quality is better than Mi Max i feel)
Good Dolby sound
Potential bugs - the more i use it, i will know better, but currently my home screen is devoid of any icons on a restart. Have restarted a couple of time but they're gone. I'm using the lastest software version. I guess i need to wait any update from Lenovo to iron this out.
Software can be more polished (like Mi Max). That runs very smooth.
Another con is the extra black space surrounding the screen apart from the bezel, which add to the size of the phone (its on all Lenovo phabs). Mi Max is more compact.
Since Mi Max is the direct competitor, i would like to say that overall Mi Max feels very fragile (i have two of them). Build quality could have been better. Also screen isnt that great i feel (very reflective), feels cheap (white bezel in front on the gold model doesnt look good). It is commendable that Lenovo is has given a premium experience to the customer at this price point (different box, all Gold phone, premium build feel, JBL earphones, good cameras and dolby branding in sound etc.)
AnonD-607905, 08 Nov 2016There is one more advantage in Mi phones. They are having IR blaster. But why these Lenovo g... moreXiaomi added ir blaster... So, Lenovo should add it to there phone? What are u talking about? I didn't get u..
Anonymous, 09 Nov 2016if it was Snapdragon, price wouldnt have been 14k LOLYa u right. If it was a snapdragon we would go for it
The phone has amazing camera and the build quality is superb and the new handsfree in the box is Amzaing .. First time ever lenovo gave amazing handsfree. Dayum Impressed !!
Much better than mi max
If people want amazing build quality and amazing camera, and amazing sound quality Dolby atmos then go for phab
And if people ONLY want snapdragon chipset and not so good built quality than go for mi max ..
