Lenovo Phab 2 Pro with Google Tango Tech Review
Google has invested over two years for developing the ‘Tango’ technology into a fully fledged product. The company’s goal was to assist the devices in examining the atmosphere around them as well as overlay information apart from the possibility of creating whole new worlds other than the existing real worlds. While Google was developing the Tango technology, it got in touch with Lenovo for assistance in crafting the pioneer consumer ready Tango gadget. The result of the aforementioned collaboration is the block phone called Lenovo Phab 2 Pro.
Tango technology isn’t the only groundbreaking thing going for the Lenovo Phab 2 Pro, it also happens to be Lenovo’s pioneer mobile phone to be available in the US markets. The 6.4 inch screen of the Lenovo Phab 2 Pro packs in an assertive IPS LCD screen that has the ability of optimising colours and contrast at the pixel level. The screen boasts of a crispy 2,560x 1,440 resolution with accurate colour reproduction. However, the phone doesn’t have as amazing sound quality as its screen quality because it is equipped with only one speaker at the bottom edge.
The Lenovo Phab 2 Pro is priced at $500 and packs in a 4,050mAh battery under the covers. The phone runs on Qualcomm octa-core Snapdragon 652 processor. It boasts of 4GB RAM and 64GB of storage space with memory expansion of 128 GB via microSD.
When it comes to the camera specifications of Lenovo Phab 2 Pro, it packs in a 16 MP camera for augmenting the Tango technology that the phone offers. But the camera needs light at all times for yielding the right shots full of colours. For adding the verve dose to the captured images, one should always make use of the HDR mode. Sadly, the camera has a faulty autofocus which is augmented further due to low lighting. The fingerprint sensor is nestled at the back of the phone beside the camera.
Since everything comes with its own sets of pros and cons, Lenovo Phab 2 Pro is no exception. Some of the pros of the slab phone include reassured build quality, well functioning fingerprint sensor, amazing battery life in case Tango technology isn’t used, is priced economically for a phone that offers bleeding edge technology and is the pioneer phone in the market that offers Tango technology. When it comes to cons, the Lenovo Phab 2 Pro is still a work-in-progress thing, the software offered by Lenovo is rough around the edges, lousy camera and the phone’s huge size can be a deal breaker for many.
Thus, in a nutshell, the Lenovo Phab 2 Pro falls short in the hardware and software department. However, the phone packs in a huge battery inside an oversized body that has average quality cameras. But the phone also packs in the Tango technology which seems to be brimming with promise. Lenovo Phab 2 Pro might be used for the development of further Tango enabled devices in the future.
