I just buy this Phab Plus about 2 day from Pc Depot Penang, Malaysia. Before this i use Meizu M1 Note, Phab Plus front camera not to good, Meizu M1 Note is more better. The sound from back speaker also not good. I just like because Phad because have big screen. For me this phone no have any special only big screen.
Hope Lenovo make this Phab more better from now model. Keypad Keylock same like Lenovo A880... To bad no improvement.
I still never try the SD card slot, i hove no problem at all. My Meizu more better from this and more chipper.
For screen flicker problem, install screen filter and set to about 50% brightness and it will be ok. I use darker screen filter and 50% setting seems to work well and is able to stabilize the screen. The play store is so funny. I click to download multiple apps and leave it there. After I go back and unlock the screen, it only start to install the first one. Same with updates as well. And my browser is so unresponsive, always cannot open even it shows full wifi signal. The play store is also like this. The camera is very clear but ovrheats the phone quite fast. Software updates is still fixing bugs. Im waiting for marshmallow. Lenovo launcher is not nice and horrible. Why dont give us the pure android lollipop launcher. I like samsungs touchwiz because it is fast. I mean lenovo ia adding that launcher which is a bloatware and i want to uninstall it. It also dont have a performance mode like asus or xiaomi.
I have had this phone after using huawei Samsung and Sony and I really find lenovo phab plus the best in price and battery and even design .. I recommend this phone quite confidently
the battery 3500mah is not enough to use...did i do switch wrong anything?

Philippine user, 09 Mar 2016Hi what site i will get the update of this phab?hi..
you can update OTA at setting about tablet .. system update.. easyy..
if u hardcore player, site at forum lenovo ru.. is officially site russia..
Frankly, 06 Mar 2016Definitely a fail product from Lenovo... bought a weeks ago and I found several severe bugs th... moreLenovo is sending out a prototype.
And it seems that most users have different problems and I don't know whether mine is a software or hardwAre problem.
I had use it after a few days. I found 3 problems. The led notification for email is not working( i dont know calls or message notification is working or not because i use it as a tab). The double tap to wake screen is not always responding. I need to touch up to 6-10 or even more to wake my screen. AND my screen is slightly flickering. I mean the brightness increases slightly when the screen shows bight colours (bright colours occupy more than50 precent) and will decrease slightly when showing darker colours. I sent to warranty and complaint about the display problems and the double tap to wake screen problem. I wait for 2 weeks, and when I go and take it, I see that my screen protector was lost. They say they change my touchscreen and touchpad and none of my problems are solved.
I know the display problems are barely noticeable in bright places but I like gaming in the dark and it was so uncomfortable for me. I didnt expect this phone to work superbly but i want it to work properly. I didnt expect it to have wonderful specs. I have even low end samsung phones. They are slow but are problemless. I have tested core prime, tab p7000, corby 2, champ and my friend's j1 ace. THIS IS MY FIRST LENOVO PHONE AND SO PROBLEMATIC. IT EVEN LAGS THE FIRST DAY I SCROLL AROUD THE MENU AND OPEN THE SETTINGS AND ALSO LAG IF YOU OPEN GALLERY,GMAIL, and some other normal apps. And even the core prime opens gmail faster than it.
.I dont even think it worth the price. My father had a zenfon 2. It is even cheaper and comes with NFC and corning gorilla glass. Furthermore, it scores about45000 in antutu benchmark and my phab plus only scores 31000. The asus company even announced a marshmallow update in april and our software updates are only fixing bugs? .But actually zenfone 2 also simply overheats and have problem with calls. Phab plus have powerful speakers as well. Anyone having my problems? firstname.lastname@example.org

Hi I am using lenovo phab plus. By reading reviews I bought this. But after starting usage I am struggling with its problem. That is when ever I start cemara or net it's getting terrible heat. What is the problem ?
Jeff, 03 Mar 2016Well it does have dual-SIM functionality. Just remove the memory card and put the second sim i... moreCorrection it does not share nano sim with microsd. If both share please tell me how
Definitely a fail product from Lenovo... bought a weeks ago and I found several severe bugs that make me think it's a half done product.
Unresponsive touch panel in some upper area (fix it with Touchscreen Booster app, it seems working well),
Cannot read 64gb microsd (if it can I assure you that several files will missing, use max 32gb instead),
Laggy launcher & system software (how come mi4i which has almost the same hardware specs can performs much better much smoother ??)
WhatsApp notification or any other messenger seems delayed / not shown (sometimes) until you unlock your Phab Plus (this is really funny...)
Stuck in Android 5.02 which is really really buggy (could be forever...) since this Phab couldn't meet targeted sales so badly in China. Just hoping for update to fix those bugs (which I rely on Lenovo...OMG)
It also has camera shift issue, sim 2 problem (sometimes), slow charging, average quality camera, unreliable lens focusing on taking videos, microsd issue (you should format microsd inside the phone), PC connection issue, etc.
Build quality is decent from outside, although I doubt they use good quality component inside. Other Chinese smartphone company like Xiaomi, Huawei, Oppo, etc. has already proved that most of their products has good quality component inside.
I was using this phablet from last 3 months, and didn't feel problem.
But last weekend it fall from my hand and screen got broken. I checked with lenovo store for the replacement of the broken screen but still they don't have spare parts of this phone.
If someone know from where can i get new screen please reply.
Dear I am using this mobile cum tab.....single problem in network is very serious issue in this model....I use this device in 3 countries with 8 mobile net work....but its reception problem is very serious issue....it's not working like a mobile....u can use it like tablet....No Sim card work in this device....I waste my money
Anonymous, 01 Mar 2016After a week living together with Lenovo phab plus I have to say that return to something less... moreWell it does have dual-SIM functionality. Just remove the memory card and put the second sim in that slot. This phone has a shared 2nd SIM and memory card slot.
But still I would say that there's ain't no need to buy a phablet this big unless you are a old grandpa with really bad eyesight.
