Is Bigger Always Better?

Nope nope nope

Personally, I’m inclined to say no. But I guess Lenovo disagrees, because the Lenovo Phab Plus smartphone is making headlines. The handset features a massive 6.8-inch display, which technically speaking, makes it more a tablet than a phone.

The device has been available in China and Malaysia since August but made its way to India this week.

It has a full HD screen, or 1,080 x 1,920 pixels (324 pixels per inch), along with the 6.8-inch massive display which is why it’s completely ridiculous it only has a 3,500mAh battery. There is literally no way that device will make it even half way through the day, even though Lenovo is claiming it will last a solid 34 hours.

But we know it won’t, which is why the fact that some people are attempting to compare this to Huawei’s Ascend P8max completely ridiculous. Huawei at least had the good sense to pack their unnecessarily massive phablet (also 6.8-inches) with 4,360mAh.

Now available in Gunmetal Platinum for Rs. 18,490 ($283), the handset is powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 615, alongside 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal memory that can be expanded, placing it firmly in the mid-range collection.

It runs Android Lollipop out of the box, which is no big surprise because like I said, it has been around for a while. It also has the Vibe UI skin on top.

The back camera has a reasonable 13 megapixels, while the front camera has only 5 megapixels, but Lenovo cameras are notoriously awful, so don’t console yourself with the numbers.
