A brand-new IDC research launched recently shows that Lenovo (now including Motorola) saw significant rise in sales throughout the holiday around October 2016, thanks to high need for the Moto E3 Power, Moto G4 series, as well as the Lenovo K5 series. Lenovo seems to be bent on keeping its energy in the brand-new year.After introducing
the Lenovo K6 Power (Review)and also Lenovo K6 Note(Review) in December, the firm has kicked off 2017 with the launch of the Lenovo P2 in India. The smartphone wased initially unveiled at IFA in 2015 as well as is involving India within 4 months of its global debut.The main highlight of the P2 smartphone, just like its precursor, the Lenovo Vibe P1, is a huge battery. This moment around, however, Lenovo is also promoting various other facets of the phone, including its design, electronic camera, as well as safety attributes. The Lenovo P2's rates puts it against several of the most preferred mid-range smart devices. Will the firm's very first 2017 launch be too obtained as in 2015's effective models? We search for out in our review.Lenovo P2 appearance and feelThe Lenovo P2 showcases an all-metal body, and also the aluminium product certainly really feels sturdy. There is nothing brand-new in regards to layout, yet the P2's general polish offers it premium feeling. There's a great deal of empty space over and below the display screen. The physical residence switch has an incorporated fingerprint scanner, however there's absolutely nothing else on the phone's reasonably thick chin.The Lenovo P2 will be releasing in Sparkling wine Gold and also Graphite Grey(
which we obtained for our testimonial)in India. At 177 grams, this phone is a little bit larger than the majority of others in its course, yet that's clarified by the enormous battery. Lenovo is stressing that the Lenovo P2 at 8.3 mm is thinner compared to the Lenovo P1 (Evaluation), which measured 9.9 mm thick. In day-to-day use, the Lenovo P2 felt a little bit as well heavy, as well as we were more comfortable when using it with 2 hands, specifically when typing.The best side of the P2 is where you'll locate the quantity rocker as well as power switch, while the hybrid SIM tray which accepts double Nano-SIMs is on the left. The left side also has a slider switch that Lenovo calls a"power-saving key ", which toggles the Ultimate Power Saver mode. In this setting, you see a countdown timer which really informs you just how much battery life you have remaining. The physical switch placement is relatively ergonomic as well as there is suitable responsive comments for all buttons.There is a Micro-USB port together with audio speaker grilles under, as well as a 3.5 mm sound jack ahead. The primary video camera with dual-LED flash is on the back, as well as Lenovo branding could be seen reduced down. The smart device likewise sports a"Made in India"tag. The design of the P2's back panel is a great deal like that of Lenovo's other recent smart devices, and it suits well with the range.The 5.5-inch full-HD Super Amoled display screen on the Lenovo P2 is vibrant, with excellent exposure even under straight sunlight. Text and also images appear actually sharp, and also the screen size makes the tool well fit for media intake. Seeing angles are respectable, as well as colour reproduction suffices. There is 2.5 D rounded glass covering the screen. Nevertheless, we were let down that there is no scrape defense, and also we saw small nicks on the glass throughout our review.In the retail box, you obtain a screen guard, a cover, an information cable television, a 24W power adaptor, a SIM ejector, and a direction booklet.Lenovo P2 specs as well as featuresThe Lenovo P2 is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 625(MSM8953)clocked at 2GHz, combined with either 3GB or 4GB of
RAM. Both versions of the phone have 32GB of built-in storage.There have actually been a great deal of mobile phones introduced in India with the same SoC, consisting of the Asus ZenFone 3 (Testimonial )as well as Moto Z Play (Testimonial )-both which are priced higher
than the P2 smartphone.To increase the 32GB of storage space microSD cards of as much as 128GB are sustained. Nonetheless, the crossbreed SIM means that customers will have to choose in between a second SIM as well as a microSD card. There is a 13-megapixel video camera with a Sony sensor as well as twin LED flash at the back, plus a 5-megapixel electronic camera on the front.Other requirements include Wi-Fi 802.11 ac/a/b/ g/n, Bluetooth 4.1, NFC, FM radio, and GPS/A-GPS. The phone supports 4G along with VoLTE on both SIMs, and we had the ability to make telephone calls through the Jio network. Lenovo asserts that the P2 sustains LTE Feline. 6 with download rates of approximately 300Mbps and also uploads at up to 50Mbps. The Lenovo P2 operates on Android 6.0 Marshmallow with the firm's Vibe Pure UI on top. The software is mainly the same as what we have seen lately on the Lenovo K6 Power( Evaluation )and K6 Note(Review). For the P2, Lenovo has gone with on-screen navigation
secrets rather than capacitive buttons. Lenovo told Devices 360 that the P2 is the first Lenovo phone to have on-screen navigation buttons, and this solves among the large concerns we encountered on the Lenovo K6 Power and K6 Note, which was the absence of backlighting for their capacitive buttons.Lenovo has actually included a System switch option in the settings, which allows you choose the positioning of the on-screen switches, and even hide the navigating bar completely-individuals will certainly have to swipe up from all-time low to show the concealed buttons if this is
allowed. The P2 preserves a great deal of software application attributes from the Lenovo K6 Power as well as K6 Note consisting of the Dual Apps mode that permits applications to be made use of with 2 different accounts on the very same phone. Knock to Light wakes the phone with double-tap on the screen while it is off; VR setting permits the mobile phone to deal with Ant Virtual Reality headset; and also Wide Touch provides one-touch faster way accessibility via a drifting switch. You can likewise rapidly toggle the flashlight by long-pressing the Residence button when the phone remains in standby.The Secure Zone feature is also existing on the Lenovo P2 though users need to note that it will only work when the Double application account attribute is shut off. The Secure Area lets customers configure additional represent apps such as Whatsapp. Much like with previous Lenovo phones,
you get the alternative to secure these applications with a PIN, pattern, and even fingerprint.The Lenovo P2 likewise permits users to carry out motions utilizing the finger print sensor. A single tap can imitate the back switch, touching and holding activates the current applications display, and a solitary press takes you back to home display. The finger print scanner can likewise be long-pressed to launch Google Now.With its brand-new UI, Lenovo has lowered the bloatware, though there are still plenty of third-party applications preloaded on the Lenovo P2 that can be uninstalled, if the user wants. These consist of Evernote, McAfee Security, Skype, Truecaller, as well as UC Web browser. There are few Lenovo applications also on-board including Lenovo Buddy, Shareit, and Syncit. Lenovo has once more not
included any kind of default gallery application though customers could access all type of files with a Data Supervisor app.The dropdown notifications color offers the normal quick settings toggles together with notices. The Themes Center app, which comes preloaded on the P2, offers a number of customisation alternatives for wallpapers, symbols, lock display setups, and also more. We discovered the UI on the P2 actually smooth as well as rapid for daily usage.Lenovo P2 performanceThe Lenovo P2 carries out actually well when it pertains to multitasking and also basic app performance. With 4GB of RAM, there is sufficient memory for tasks at any kind of provided time. The 5.5-inch full-HD screen is adequate for seeing videos and also looking at pictures. We havinged fun playing Asphalt 8 on the P2 and also we didn't observe any type of frame drops throughout gameplay.The smart device had the ability to latch onto mobile networks in any way times, as well as download rates over 4G were good as well. In regards to audio, the speaker situated near the bottom was adequate for a tiny, empty area, though we noticed distortion at greater quantities. Lenovo again disappointed us with its bundled earphones, and also we advise making use of a third-party headset rather than the terrible one that comes in the box.We ran our typical benchmarks and also got good scores of 63,445 on AnTuTu; 40,634 total in Quadrant; 8,098 in 3DMark Ice Tornado Extreme; and also 23fps in GFXBench's T-Rex test.The 13-megapixel back cam is really fast when it pertains to concentrating, thanks to its phase-detection autofocus ability. The P2 could click thorough macros in well-lit circumstances yet landscapes showed up average. Information were passable, yet sound appears at the corners of the image. The P2 could take respectable low-light shots if there are light sources around. With no source of light, the shots get
very rough. We likewise found that the P2 was commonly unable to focus on topics in reduced light, which was disappointing. The electronic camera had the ability to reproduce exact colours only
with images taken in problems where there was an excellent amount of light. Faucet to see full-sized Lenovo P2 video camera samples The cam application on the P2 is the same as what we have actually seen on the K6 Power and K6 Note, and it's easy to make use of. One could access video camera settings with simply one faucet. The P2 can record full-HD videos with suitable top quality. Selfies are passable when absorbed good light, but turn out actually dark or else. Generally, the Lenovo P2 fares fairly well in the electronic camera department despite the fact that this is not its main feature.That brings us to the 5100mAh non-removable battery, which managed to last for an extraordinary 21 hours, 40 minutes in our video clip loop battery test. With ordinary use, the Lenovo P2 conveniently took care of to last over 2 days.Even with hefty use consisting of songs streaming, continual Google Maps make use of for navigating, and few hrs of YouTube video clip streaming among other things, the battery on the Lenovo P2 lasted roughly two days. Quick charging support is a significant benefit, and also we conveniently got to 30-40 percent fee in just 20 minutes. The phone could be charged fully in less than 90 minutes, which is again impressive.One of the emphasize attributes of the P2 is its Ultimate Power Saver mode which dramatically prolongs battery life. The mode, as anticipated, kills a lot of attributes consisting of cellular data connectivity and also syncing. It just permits fundamental use such as telephone calls, text and the radio, but it might actually be available in helpful in emergency circumstances. We
activated the Ultimate Power Saver mode at one point when we were to 20 percent on the battery sign, and the device survived for virtually 20 hrs after that.VerdictThe Lenovo P2 is a monster when it involves battery efficiency. Power users who like to be on-line regularly without worrying about their battery level will be fairly delighted with the P2. This likewise makes it a good choice for frequent visitors. The P2 succeeds when it concerns total efficiency, with its octa-core cpu turning out to be sufficient for daily usage. For a phone that is concentrated on battery life, the Lenovo P2's cameras also carry out well, and also its software program is easy to use.The Lenovo P2 will certainly come at a starting rate of Rs. 16,999 for the variation with 32GB of storage and also 3GB of RAM, while the variant with 4GB of RAM will set you back Rs. 17,999.
