Review Lenovo Vibe P1 / P1m. First look

Before the start of IFA, the exhibition of consumer electronics, held annually in Berlin, all the companies present their novelties. Lenovo in China this time has shown many different things about most of them, I will try to explain, but I’ll start with smartphones Lenovo Vibe P1 and P1m. By the way, our website has published a preliminary review of yet another novelty from Lenovo – smartphone Vibe S1.

New Vibe P1 and P1m belong to the P-series, Lenovo created to fight in the middle segment. The main features of devices in this line – capacious battery, support USB-OTG / USB-Host and charging other devices from the USB-connector on your smartphone, as well as reasonable cost. “Workhorse” – something like this can be briefly describe the P-series. The new device is made in exactly the same ideology, I talk about the older (more interesting) model – Lenovo Vibe P1.

In terms of materials and appearance of the new Lenovo Vibe P1 interesting to previous models, if only because that is the basis for the metal casing is taken, while the P70 and P90 used plastic. Metal body adds new apparatus pair of glasses, making it more expensive externally, and simply more enjoyable. Design, however, remained as simple as in the previous smartphones. No frills design or decorative elements – “back” of metal, front side covered with protective glass – everything.

The smartphone has two touch-sensitive keys below the screen, but draws attention to the central mechanical button inscribed into it with a fingerprint scanner. Personally, I like the location of the scanner front more, although it is a matter of personal preferences and habits, scanner, on the “back” can be just as comfortable.

Separately, it should be noted the switch on the left edge, it can be used to transfer the smart phone in power-saving mode with a simplified shell and disable some services and applications for longer operation.

Finally, logical innovation for this model – fast charging. The unit with a capacity of 5000 mAh battery this possibility is very relevant.

Smartphone Lenovo Vibe P1m much easier the older model: plastic housing, less than the diagonal (5 “) and the resolution (1280×720 pixels) screen, use Mediatek MT6735P platform with 16 GB of internal memory, there is a fingerprint reader and a battery of smaller capacity – 4000 mAh. Resolution main camera – 8 megapixels to 13 megapixels for Vibe P1. If the high range smartphone that offers some really new to the P-series of things: metal casing, a fingerprint reader, the Vibe P1m – just another device with roughly the same parameters as in last year’s models, designed to upgrade the lineup Lenovo.
