Lenovo P2 review

Introduction

After the first view of the specifications, we can say that Lenovo P2 seems to be the true successor of Vibe P1. The new model comes with a bigger battery and a lighter body. Seems that Lenovo managed to add a higher capacity battery of 5100 mAh in a smaller body than his predecessor.

Lenovo P2 also comes with a improved and prettier design, a vivid Super AMOLED screen, a more power-efficient Snapdragon 625 chipset and an improved 13 Megapixels main camera.

We also found some bad things about this model, one of them is the boxy design and the other one is that it runs on a older version of Android. Sadly, the selfie camera is same with the one used on Vibe P1 and was not improved.

Display

Lenovo P2 comes with a 5.5- inch Super AMOLED screen with 1080p resolution (401ppi) and protected with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 and 2.5D glass. The screen gives us good viewing angles and nice colors.

The screen also supports High Sensitivity Touch option, feature that will help you operate the phone with gloves.

The screen managed to reach the maximum brightness of 510 nits and infinite contrast ratio. The screen comes with a Brightness Protection that will make the night time usage easier.

Software

The phone comes with a pretty standard and clean Android 6.0.1 out of the box. The UI has a lot of customization options and runs without lag. There are a lot of themes to choose from and the rest of the features are pretty the same as the standard version of the Android.

Performance

Lenovo P2 comes with a Snapdragon 625 SoC with eight Cortex-A53 cores at 2.0 GHz. This chipset is manufactured using a 14nm FinFET process and is famous for the amazing energy efficiency.

At the Benchmark tests, Lenovo P2 didn’t crush the competition because of the chipset that can’t compete with those with Kryo cores. However, the chipset  has a very good thermal emissions and power efficiency.

Camera

Lenovo P2 comes with 13 Megapixels main camera with f/2.0 aperture, phase detection autofocus and dual-LED flash. Sadly, we don’t have image stabilization on this device. The photos made by this camera are quite good with good level of detail, great dynamic range, spot-on white balance and accurate colors. The only bad thing about this camera is that it has some noise to note.
