Decided to try the Phab Plus as compared to the other tablet phones, this one has Dolby Atmos and a Full-HD screen. So far, I haven't regretted my purchase.
The phone is incredibly thin and sexy in appearance, however, it is really slippery to hold if you do not have the rubbery casing.
Due to the size of this phone, I only intend to use it more as an entertainment device first and a phone second.
Although this phone is advertised as having dual SIM slots and an MicroSD slot, you can either put in one MicroSD and one SIM card or 2 SIM cards. There is no way to put in 2 SIM cards and a MicroSD as it is a shared tray. However, the SIM slot is nicely designed as it can accommodate either a MicroSD or a Nano SIM (in one part of the tray) and the other part is a Micro SIM tray.
Regarding the Dolby Atmos speaker, it is one of the loudest phones I've ever heard. My first encounter with raw power of the Dolby Atmos was when I set the alarm of the phone the next morning. Normally, it would take me 3 alarm rings to wake me. However, with the Dolby Atmos, things were about to change that.........All of that!!!
At 6am on the dot, the earth-shattering alarm woke the hell out of me and my wife so much so that I quickly tried and figure out how to disable the other 2 alarms before it rings again...I was too shocked and go back to sleep after that and I've never dared to use the Phab as an alarm clock again.
Brilliant display and resolution
Fast zippy response with games, videos and internet access
Extremely loud speaker
Didn't encounter the reduced ring-volume as reported by others. I downloaded a lot of loud ringtones from Zedge and that may have helped.
Too unwieldly and too slippery to hand-hold without casing
The screen is not entirely black as compared to an OLED screen
Camera focusing is too slow and shutter lag is almost 1 sec.....

Conrad, 18 Dec 2015Wow a 6.8 inch phablet, seriously Lenovo what's wrong with you, it is almost just 0.2 inch les... moreIndeed. I, personally do not consider this a phablet and no one should, actually.
Anonymous, 13 Dec 2015i have the same problem and i got 2 updates until now but nothing fixed this problem :(You have something is setting related to protect hearing make it inactive . I was facing this issue with some mobiles when I bought them, after that I discovered that this is an option of the phone
Wow a 6.8 inch phablet, seriously Lenovo what's wrong with you, it is almost just 0.2 inch less from being a tablet. I used to think that Lumia 1520 is huge and unwieldy but seriously this phone just redefines unwieldiness. How s someone supposed to carry it around?
Good luck while shoving this phablet in your pant pockets, and beware, never ever try to shove it down your back pocket or else you will end up walking in a quite funny way.

Anonymous, 14 Dec 2015Apdate to the latest version of the android software and the problem will be disappeari updated two times till now but the decreasing volume columns still exist
I just bought this phone yesterday. I was really taken with the specs. Today, as I am exploring my phone, it kept turning off. I already set the Sleep option to 5 minutes inactivity. But still, it kept on suddenly turning black and I had to wake it up every so often. Do I have to bring this back to the store for them to check it?

yu, 09 Dec 2015lenovo phab plus user....after i call out, the next incoming call will be decrease ringtong. ... morei have the same problem and i got 2 updates until now but nothing fixed this problem :(
Strange when certain features turned on, the camera focusing slow to a crawl. hope Lenovo can improve with firmware update.
I already bought the device and it has been a fine experience ...
However the phone is far from perfect, for instance the device front headset grill is just a bit mediocre and of course lenovo still provides upgrades from time to time and the camera although 13 MP is disastrous in low light conditions ...
True I bought the device for 999/- AED ( CHECK IT UP ) and for its price its an amazing experience ...
