Google tango on a 6.4’’ QHD display, now that’s what I’m talking about. Just when we thought that it was impossible to reimagine the smartphone with the only deciding factor being the specifications, we were introduced to the Lenovo Phab 2 Pro.
Only available at Flipkart Here.
The Exclusivity – Google Tango
The phab 2 pro comes with a ‘Tango’ logo at its back, what does that mean ?
Google tango is as close to virtual reality as it gets, it gives the phab 2 the ability to use computer vision to detect the phone’s position relative to the works around it without using gps or any other network. In simple terms your camera will now be able to measure the length of your drawer or place extra terrestrial creatures in your living room.
Even though this technology is relatively new, it has a widespread presence on youtube, there are several cool and intuitive games that allow you to place a dinosaur in your garden or set up domino’s contraption on your dining table.
The apps are very intuitive, you can hand over the installed app to anyone and you’ll quickly see them pave their way through the app.
The beast packs a 1.8GHz octa-core Qualcomm snapdragon 652 processor backed by 4GB RAM. The storage is 64GB and expandable via microSD card.
Display resolution is a whopping 1440 x 2560 with very rich colour reproduction. Front and rear cameras are 8MP and 16MP respectively. Three microphones enables 5.1 channel audio recording, you can truly relive every moment you capture if you have a 5.1 channel rig at home.Check it out here at Flipkart.
A generous 4050mAh battery should last you a day and a half although it’s hard to say how long will the google tango experience last on the battery with all the sensors on the back of this beast.
Built Quality & Feel
The dimensions of the phone are 179.80 x 88.60 x 10.70, full metal body with antenna bands running along the rear top and bottom edges similar to the iphone 6s’.
The weight of 250gm doesn’t exactly make this the lightest smartphone but this is quite alright for a mini-tablet. The phablet does feel a little too big in the hand but that’s quite alright as the 6.5’’ screen does make sense with the google Tango.
The fingerprint sensor now goes around the back of the phone right below the camera.
Overall a very sturdy built with nothing to complain about except for the antenna bands. The iphone 7 gave up with the idea of having antenna bands around the rear as they left a ‘cheap’ look, the iphone 7 came with the antenna bands around the top of the phone.
The phab 2 pro definitely has something new to offer. The specifications are top notch and the display is stunning with its QHD resolution. Enough has already been said about the Tango !
