The Lenovo Phab2 Plus is undeniably a massive phone. In fact, it even goes beyond the dimensions of the previous size champion, the Mi Max. The Phab2 Plus is taller but more importantly a lot thicker than the Mi Max. The added size also comes with a fair share of bulk, with the Phab2 Plus weighing in at 218g compared to the 203g.
Dimensions aside, the Phab2 Plus is a pretty standard looking device. On the front we have the massive display surrounded by a not-so-subtle black border that stands out particularly on the gold model.
Despite a clean and light layer of software, the performance on the Phab2 Plus was underwhelming. This is largely because of the MediaTek MT8783 processor that seems perpetually out of breath. You can clearly see the phone struggling most of the time with even basic tasks such as opening and closing apps or just scrolling. It really puts a big damper on the overall usability of the phone – the poor responsiveness does not make you want to use it as much.
