Lenovo has already captured the budget Smartphone market with its K series phones and here it is back to the market with the promising new Smartphone Lenovo P2 Singapore. The phone has the best battery life in the segment and is equipped with a lot of attractive features. Although the phone falls back in its camera and Android OS version, the other set of features are pretty fascinating for buyers making this phone good enough in the mid-budget range.
A DILEANATION OF THE DESIGN
The phone is strongly built and is slightly heavier on your pockets as compared to the other 5.5-inch screen phones weighing 177 grams. The gray metal casing of the phone prevents picking up of marks and gives the phone a gorgeous look. Lenovo has decided to ditch the camera bump providing all the necessary protection to the lens. The lock button and the volume rocker find a place along the right edge of P2. The 3.5mm jack is at the top while the micro USB charging slot is at the bottom.
The device has tapered edges which serve as a relief for the thickness of the phone being a bit higher at 8.3mm. One can also find a non-customisable battery saver switch along with a SIM tray which can also be used as an SD card slot. The fingerprint scanner finds its place on the front which doubles up as the physical home button. The phone also features a LED indicator for alerts.
DISPLAY AND SOFTWARE
The Super AMOLED 5.5 inch display flaunted by the phone is probably the best feature of the phone. The phone does not tweak with the originality of the colors of display and gives the best visual to the user. The display is protected by a Corning Gorilla Glass 3 and has outstanding viewing angles. The user can toggle between several viewing and color modes as comfortable.
The device runs on Snapdragon 625 processor with 3/4 gigs of memory and 32/64 gigs storage space. The apps launch pretty fast and the phone shows minor lags only while using major apps. The device runs on Android 6.0.1 and Lenovo has not made any statements regarding the release of the Nougat update. Additional features tweaked up on the stock Android include Wide Touch (accessibility), Secure Zone and Night mode. Lenovo has made all the necessary refurbishing on the Android to make handling the phone a charm.
The 13 MP rear shooter gives rather flat images irrespective of all the necessary features and fails drastically in low lighting conditions. The camera app is messy with unnecessary modes and settings. The 5MP front camera is decent but fails to provide the necessary background detail.
The device is a beast in terms of its 5100 Mah battery which promises a 3-day life. The device also supports fast charging through the adapter included in the package. The ultimate power saver mode comes handy to save that last bar of juice left on your phone in case of emergency.
With the pricing around S$300-400 range in Singapore, the phone offers great price to features ratio. Great battery life, a charming display, and a lucid software are some of the supporting points for investing in the phone. Less the mediocre camera, the phone offers great features for the money and is definitely worth a buy.
