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.
syed ali, 01 Mar 2016I am using and its awesome.waiting for cover and screen protector?you get the cover in ebay and amazon. dont go for a tempered glass because the screen is big the glass falls off most of the times. but you are welcome to use a screen guard. this is if you have not ordered it yet...
After a week living together with Lenovo phab plus I have to say that return to something less than 6.8 inches is impossible.
Is little bigger than 6's but what it offers less eye fatigue and that is is incredible. It is super small for a tablet and not too large to use as a main phone.
The processing power of the processor is very good for an average user although the is at midrange. After four successive upgrades of firmware the camera corrected and now shoots perfect pictures. The almost stock Android environment plays very smoothly and without stuttering.
The available memory of 2 Gbyte is between 0.9 to 1.1 gigabytes.
In 4G network plays very well and can easily be switched from one card to another and of course it turns the other sim card to 2G.
Battery although it is only 3.500 milliamperes it has incredible autonomy Despite the huge screen.
However, it gives me much more autonomy of my samsung note4 and the my Asus zenfone 2.
Now compared p8 max ( that I lived with for 2 weeks and turn it back cause the battery was not charging ) Lenovo Phab Plus has half price and offers almost the same but the most important of all is that it supports the band 20 at 800 MHz, something that p8 max does not support and it is very important for 4G coverage in europe.
Wrapping up I will say that the only thing I am missing is the dual SIM Full active feature that my Asus Zen fone 2 and P8 Max have.
I wish Lenovo at near feature to bring us one Ph ablet in Hi-End category that features a a huge screen of 6.8 inches.
For me this mid range Lenovo Phab Plus phone tablet is a one of the best.Don't asking for higher specs like IPhone 6S or Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge.
wtz going on..... Amazon is selling this tab at 20,990
