Lenovo Phab 2 Plus Giant Smartphone!

Lenovo Phab 2 Plus is a massive Android smartphone. I have already talked good about Lenovo’s ZUK Z2 Pro with Snapdragon 820. The Phab 2 has another speciality. Being massive for a low price! Let’s see what you get inside.

Main specs: 6.4 inch 1920×1080 resolution display, Dual rear camera, 3GB of RAM, 32GB Internal storage, MTK8783 Octa-core processor, 4G, External Micro SD/TF card up to 128GB, 8.0MP Front camera, 13.0MP Dual Rear camera, 4050mAh and 218 grams weight!

The first thing I see with the design on Phab 2 Plus is how it looks like a Huawei Mate 9 on back but with slimmer camera parts and more curved design! The fingerprint sensor and sides of the phone reminds me about Xiaomi Redmi Note 4X! A very interesting mix they have put together. Lenovo seems to find inspiration from lots of places.

Something that’s missing with this device that would make it an ultimate seller is a Stylus. Why is no company challenging Samsung in this area? I think the stylus truly makes a large phone stand out. Because then it makes sense to have a massive display! Another thing here compared to ZUK Z2 Pro this one has expandable storage which is nice. In max you get 32GB more in this device if you insert a maximum Micro SD card.

Phab 2 Plus comes with Android 6.0 which might be a little boring now when we have both Android 7.0 Nougat and Android 8.0 Oreo out. Especially Oreo that truly has redesigned the whole interface! They don’t seem to have their own UI so may be vanilla Android 6.0. Like HMD is doing with their new Nokia branded phones. At least this phone is a safe purchase Lenovo just as ASUS is famous for getting quality reviews on their brand new gadgets.

Lenovo ZUK Z2 Pro Low-cost Phone with Galaxy S7 Processor!

Lenovo is a very popular brand when it comes to phones. We are mostly used to them when it comes to computers. But they create amazing low-cost phones as well! Lenovo ZUK Z2 Pro is a phone with Galaxy S7 processor for a very low price. Other cool phones with Snapdragon 820 was: LG G5, V20, HTC 10 and OnePlus 3. Let’s see what ZUK offers with Z2 Pro.

Main specs: 5.2 inch Super AMOLED FHD 2.5D display, 6GB of RAM, 128GB Internal storage, Snapdragon 820 clocked at 2.15GHz Quad-core processor, 4G Phone, Metal frame, Curved design, White/Black colours, Android 6.0.1, No Card Extend, 3.5mm Headphone jack, 13MP Rear camera and 8MP Front camera.

First big major selling points on ZUK Z2 Pro are Snapdragon 820 and massive memory! Both 6GB RAM and 128GB storage is madness! Yes you can’t expand memory but really who needs that after you have this much?

Also that the display is AMOLED is amazing because it means you will get super vibrant colours. Other cool features are U-Touch 2.0 fingerprint recognition. Very slim as well 7.45mm. One downside could be just 3100mAh battery. 4000mAh would be nicer but you can’t get everything!

Something I find interesting is the low weight on the device just 145 grams. I would expect at least 170 grams for a phone like this. It’s using USB Type C which is also cool. That cable you can plug in from both sides just as with Apple’s latest iPhone cable. If you want then you can also insert dual nano SIM cards.

The design on front on ZUK Z2 Pro reminds me about Galaxy S2. It looks like they are using glass back which can be bad in terms of durability. I may be wrong about this. But if it is glass then you will be one of the cool kids. Glass back is back in town with phones like iPhone 8 and iPhone X. Hey even Galaxy Note 8 is using it!

Leeco Le Pro3 Elite Cheap Phone With Galaxy S7 Processor!

LeTV got a smartphone that is very popular. It’s called the Leeco Le Pro3 Elite. This is a company that not many people have heard about but they can produce and have done many low-end devices with great specs.

Main features: 5.5-inch Display, 4GB of RAM, 32GB Internal storage, Snapdragon 820 Quad-core processor, 4G, Beautiful design, Fingerprint sensor, 4070mAh battery, 2.5D arc glass screen, Dual speakers + CDLA, 16MP + 8MP camera, 4G+/VoLTE and 24W QC 3.0 double charge!

The cool part with this charger for Leeco Le Pro3 Elite is how it’s using double fast charge. And that you can plug in the cable from both directions! It’s also a very slim phone only 7.5mm thickness.

A big thing with this phone is how it’s running with snapdragon 820! Same processor Galaxy S7, LG V20, LG G5, HTC 10, OnePlus 3, Moto Z and ZTE Axon 7 have! So you can expect a lot of juice out of this smartphone! It’s clocked at 2.35GHz with amazing Adreno 530 graphics engine.

The camera is using IMX298 sensor, ODAF, 6P and f/2.0. Under the display you have three keys: Multi-tasking, home and back button. It comes in a full body metal with three colours silver, pink and gold.

The camera on the back side of Pro3 Elite doesn’t look as beautiful as the Xiaomi Mi 5X. But it feels just as slim! And the biggest selling point with this device I feel will be Snapdragon 820 for a low-price. 5.5” large display is pretty standard these days on high-end phones. But here you are getting it even on a low-end device!

I wish it did come available in a full black colour. Many people like that and it’s mainly people’s favourite. This phone will be perfect if you are a smartphone gamer but doesn’t wanna pay a fortune for just some Android gaming.

Xiaomi Mi 5X Looks Better Than Mi 6!

I am a big fan of everything that Xiaomi do. They have a really cool phone out called Xiaomi Mi 5X. It’s not their most high-end phone but wow is it a beautiful crafted phone! Let’s have a look at what’s inside.

Main specs: Dual rear camera, 5.5 inch display, 4GB of RAM, 64GB Internal storage, Snapdragon 625, Octa-core, 4G Smartphone, MIUI 9, Full metal unibody, 12MP + 12MP telephoto, Optical Zoom, 165 grams, 7.3mm thickness, Round edges and Discreet antenna design.

The main thing that I love so much with Xiaomi Mi 5X is the back camera design. Wow! It’s design is amazing with a beautiful border around the lens, it’s a protruding camera just as iPhone 7 Plus but more discreet and slimmer protruding effect.

It also comes with Anti-fingerprint coating. Which is awesome because that is a major problem for me with my Galaxy S8! And many other phones have the fingerprint magnet problem. It makes you feel like the phone becomes ugly and you wanna hide it away inside a case!

The camera comes with a nice portrait mode effect where you can blur the background SLR-style. This is great to create creamy backgrounds with focused foreground images. The processor inside is 64-bit with power efficient 14nm FinFET.

With audio you get high quality because it features DHS audio calibration algorithm and standalone audio amplifier. This is mainly to improve headphone sound but also speaker output.

In case you need more storage in Mi 5X then you can just purchase an external TF card up to massive 128GB! I really love this phone overall. I can’t find any specific downside with it. I even think the dual camera design on this phone is prettier than the design on Mi 6! Which is pretty funny. I also trust Xiaomi and have loved them since I bought my first Xiaomi Mi Note phone back in 2014. It was ahead of it’s time.

Coolpad Cool Play 6 Smartphone Huawei Mate 9 Look-Alike Design!

Coolpad Cool Play 6 is another phone you probably never heard about. But there is a lot of brands in the low-end market. As you know in the top it’s only Samsung and Apple! Let’s see what this playful named phone gives you.

Specs: 5.5 Inch display, 6GB of RAM, 64GB Internal storage, Snapdragon 653 Octa-core processor, 4G, Gaming smartphone, 4060mAh battery, 13MP + 13MP rear camera, 8MP Front camera, Black and Gold colour and Fingerprint scanner.

What’s cool about Cool Play 6 is how it looks extremely identical to Huawei Mate 9 if you look at the back! Mate 9 is my favourite lag free phone so far. Other things we see here is focus on lots of memory both in RAM and Storage. A massive battery packed inside for long game session. But not just that but a dual 13MP camera on the rear is awesome.

It supports fast charge and USB Type-C. About 175 grams in weight and OTG support. The UI is Android 7.1.1 with Journey UI 1.0.

One bad thing with this phone is how it doesn’t come with Micro SD card support. But 64GB will be enough for most people. The shell on the other hand is in premium metal. You can insert Dual SIM. It does have three buttons below the front screen to navigate with. They haven’t removed that option completely as we saw with Galaxy S8 and iPhone X.

Cool Play 6 is a great phone if you are a big fan of Mate 9 design but doesn’t have the money for it! We will probably not see that much more phones coming out 2017. It’s only three months left of the year and we may see some Google Pixel phone but other than that it’s time to start to get ready for 2018!
