Lenovo Phab2 Plus features - 12-14-2016, 02:14 PM,
The Phab 2 Plus revolves around a massive 6.4-inch 1080p display and a full metal body with a fingerprint sensor on the back. Also on the back is a dual camera system that produces shallow depth of field using the information from the secondary camera. There is no Google Tango like there is on the Phab 2 Pro (don't let the name confuse you), but the Phab2 Plus is much cheaper than the Pro model so this should help put our expectations in check.
Back in 2013, Sony launched the Xperia Z Ultra. It had a massive 6.4-inch display, which was unheard of back then. None of the phones around that time were even remotely close to that, which made it stick out as a sore thumb. As a result, it didn't sell so well.
Fast forward to 2016 and things are a bit different. 5.5-inch is fast becoming the rule rather than exception for smartphone display sizes. As such, a 6+ inch device no longer appears outlandish.
Earlier this year Xiaomi introduced the 6.44-inch Mi Max, which was met with a positive response and there were fewer complaints heard about the size of the device as there would have been three years ago.
Naturally then, we are now seeing more and more smartphone manufacturers jump on the bandwagon. The latest entrant is the Lenovo Phab2 Plus, which competes squarely against the aforementioned Xiaomi device when it comes to pricing. Here are some of its key specifications.

As you can see from the specs, even though the Phab2 Plus resembles the Phab2 Pro in design, it is decidedly mid-range device with a price to match. The focus is really on the display size here more than overall device performance.
