Lenovo PHAB is a mid-to-low level Android phone released a couple of years ago, in 2015, with a good processor speeding at 1.2 gigahertz, a big size 7-inches multi-touch screen, a 13 MP back side camera and a 5 MP front side camera. We will get a better idea about this phone's features when we get into more details.

This phone is equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 8916 system chip, backed up by a good CPU running at 1.2 GHz with 1 GB of RAM memory. An interesting aspect of this cellphone is the 16 GB quite big internal storage and an external memory slot, which allows the user to install hundreds of apps without running out of space.

This phone is very slim and practical, being just 0.35" thick. This cellphone is just 7.32" long, but it's still able to fit a a 7 inches display. This phone feels much lighter than what one would think about a cellphone this size. This cellphone is sold in lots of color options, black, blue, red and white.

This device features two cameras, a 13 MP back side camera and a 5 mega-pixels front camera. In addition, the camera counts with some nice characteristics: flash, auto-focus, geo tagging and face detection shooting.

Lenovo packed this phone with a good looking 7 inches screen, and a resolution of 1280 x 720 (HD), which makes everything look very nice. This screen uses IPS LCD capacitive technology, and has multi-touch detection.

This cellphone features WiFi capability (but it can't provide it to other devices around, acting as a hotspot), 4G LTE high speed connection type or 3G fast connection type, over HSPA, HSUPA and EDGE technologies. The Lenovo PHAB has dual sim cards so it is able to use 2 different phone numbers and even different carriers at the same time.

The Lenovo PHAB has a great 4250 mAh battery that provides this cellphone a great battery duration. Lenovo afirms this device has a talk time of 24 hs and a stand by time of 480 hours.

This cellphone also features some interesting features like Bluetooth (4.0), GPS (Global Positioning System) and NFC (to trigger actions, transfer data or make payments by holding your phone close to another NFC device or tag), and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

This cellphone is probably a little bit expensive considering it is priced 259 dollars, and many similar phones are quite cheaper than that. If you will use this phone mainly for internet broswing and social networks, you will definitely love this cellphone.
