2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 6 Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.


  • Good, reassuring build quality
  • Accurate fingerprint reader
  • Very bulky, heavy - and the size could definitely be a deal breaker especially if you have small hands
  • The aluminium body and glass screen tend to sustain fine scratches (so using a case would be a good idea)


  • The 6.4-inch screen is beautiful, sharp, and great for apps and media


  • The first phone with Google's Tango Augmented Reality software - reveals the useful and entertaining possibilities of building AR into a phone allowing you to add cool virtual objects and realities to the world you see on the phone screen - the Phab 2 Pro does this by measuring and tracking the space around you - the possibilities are endless - and Tango is a lot of fun – when it works
  • Lenovo's UI over Android is decent, but sometimes rough around the edges
  • The apps are sometimes confusing and can be buggy - for example, graphics on some games are terribly low-fi and some are prone to freezing - other apps that measure and track the room don't always work accurately
  • Tango itself just doesn't seem very stable - you routinely encounter error messages that the Tango system had crashed, or that apps just couldn't connect to Tango's cam in the first place


  • Decent hardware/performance
  • The hardware and performance is decent - but no match for current flagships like the Google Pixel XL and iPhone 7 Plus
  • The dozen or so available Tango apps are buggy, unstable, inconsistent or just plain bad, and the phone hardware itself fails to stand on its own


  • Average cameras - photos can be grainy and dull, and sometimes slow to process


  • Average call quality


  • The 4, 000mAh battery is pretty good as long as you don't "Tango" much
  • Fast recharge times
  • The battery dies a quick death when you use AR


  • No NFC
  • While Tango (AR) is great in theory, it's implementation on the phone leaves a lot to be desired right now
  • On the whole, the Lenovo Phab 2 Pro is a cool toy for developers to unlock the potential of augmented reality but there may be better options in this price bracket for a regular user
