  • Lenovo Introduces New Phab Plus Device, Looks A Lot Like Apple's iPhone 6 Plus


    As Apple’s next generation iPhone event is now just a day away, many companies are rushing to get their devices out before Apple does theirs. The most recent company to introduce a new handset is Lenovo. Lenovo recently released their all-new Lenovo Phab Plus device, which seems to look exactly like Apple’s iPhone 6. The new smartphone sports a 6.8-inch display and will be released in the U.S. for $299 late September.

    The Phab Plus runs on Android 5.0 Lollipop, has two SIM slots, a 5MP front camera with flash, a 13MP rear camera, 2GB of RAM, and 32GB of storage with a Snapdragon 615 octa-core system. Due to the size of the smartphone, there’s a one-handed feature where you can shrink the entire display either to the bottom right corner or the bottom left corner (sounds like Apple’s one-handed feature, except the display on Apple’s device shifts down).



    Lenovo’s new smartphone is offered in the same three colors Apple’s iPhone 6/6 Plus is offered in; instead of naming them gold, space grey, and silver it’s named champagne, titanium silver, and gunmetal grey. If you as us, the difference in names won’t make the colors itself any different. Another similarity Lenovo added to their device is the metal unibody design Apple has on their iPhone with the same integrated antenna and rounded edge.

    Although there are plenty of similarities, the price of the device is what makes it very different from Apple’s iPhone. The Phab Plus will be $299 in the U.S. off contract, whereas the iPhone 6 Plus is $750 off contract. That is $450 cheaper than the popular Apple device. Do you think the price will tempt you into purchasing the new Lenovo device or would you rather pay the extra money and own an iPhone instead? Do you think it looks like the iPhone? Share your thoughts with us in the section below.

      They had me sold until "6.8in screen."

      The size of the iPhone 6 and my S6 Edge are the perfect screen sizes for me. Just having a iP6+ now drives me crazy.

      $299 vs $750? What a freaking price difference for a device with better specs! This is when you know Apple is bending us over. Love my 6+ but come on!?

      But you don't need better specs. Apple optimizes their software and hardware efficiently to work side by side. Sure maybe an extra stick of ram wouldn't hurt but as a consumer from apples view we don't need it and they are right. I don't know about anyone else's iPhones but I've never had a problem with any of mine since the 4s and it was a battery drain/memory leak because of a firmware.

      I hate the size of my 6+ way too freaking big. But I didn't want the "lesser" iPhone 6...it's bullshiz that they couldn't just make both the devices exactly the same but in the two sizes. Really pîssed me off honestly.

      But as for this phab plus is running android so it's still going to battery drain still going to come with bloatware and still going to start lagging 30 days into using it so no thank you.

      Also, Akshay did you mean "handset"??? It reads "headset" but maybe I missed something?

      I love it that you hate the size but you have 14 days to try it and return it or exchange it. And I love how they made the iphone 6+ "exactly" the same as the iPhone 6 except for the optic stabilizer or something but you couldn't tell.

      Neither of your comments made any relevance.

      Clearly I'm an iPhone guy, so I'm going with the best iPhone. There was never going to be any consideration on returning it.....????????? We are at mod my I website. Thought I was a droid guy or????

      and there is a clear difference between the two devices. If you were an apple/iPhone guy, you'd know.

      Camera is better, battery is better, screen is better...I'll state again, why would I choose the lesser iPhone?

      Where does your "argument" come in? Please explain???

      Screen is obviously bigger. Can you really tell a difference with the ppi?

      Camera is exactly the same except OIS. I'm sure that's a big deal to you. It helps with bluriness when taking photos. Unless your 58 years old or Michael j fox it doesn't matter.

      Little bigger battery obviously. Kinda balances out the bigger screen doesn't it.

      Other than that it's the same phone.

      No I didn't think you were an android guy but they are both really good Phones that balance each other out. None of the actual differences make a difference.

      They actually do make a difference. The battery is proven to last a longer, not balance out. The 6+ camera DOES work in favor over the 6(I've tested with my friend 6) and even for Netflix you can watch 1080p videos on 6+ which you can not do on the 6...post above provided a link. Check it out.

      Trust me I'm anal and if they were the same phone I would of definitely went with the 6

      Totally agree man! The 6+ is huge, and I love my 6 (which I also thought was huge after a 5S) so a 6.8" screen is massive! The name kinda gives it away, Phab[let] Plus. I'll stick with my iPhone 6 and iPad for the mo. Phablets haven't got me sold, and I don't relish the idea of making phone calls with something the size of a net book!!
