Review: Lenovo P1m- A True Powerhouse
The budget smartphone, launched in September 2015, is the mini version of the Lenovo P1 and is focused on longer battery life. A mind blowing 4000mAh battery can last longer than you expect. A button is provided on the left side of the phone to save battery, they call it One-Key Power Saver.
Apart from this, Lenovo has taken care about meeting needs for today’s lifestyle, like introducing the latest Android 5.1 (Lollipop) with 16GB in-built memory. This memory can be extended up to 32GB with Micro-SD card. Phone supports Dual Sim technology with 4G (LTE), which is a thumbs up for the phone with budget less than 10K. The phone is designed with 64-bit architecture MediaTek board, along with a 1.0GHz Quad-Core processor. A 5.0” HD (1280 X 720) display looks sober with the default launcher. The other basic things would be, Bluetooth 4.1 LE, Wi-Fi connectivity and 3.5mm audio port.
When we unbox the phone, we find a handset along with a travel adapter, earphones, a USB cable, User Manual, warranty card, an extra screen guard and a back cover.
The P1m lives up your expectation with front 5MP and rear 8MP autofocus with LED camera. Though we would love to see more enhanced pictures taken in low light. The camera can capture HD pictures and videos, which had negligible noise when we reach optimum zoom level. The handset is provided with basic photo editing tools.
Sound quality is noble with and without earphones. Even FM signal quality we found quiet decent. No call drops we observed in our tenure of quality check.
So on conclusion we would suggest go get this classy powerhouse, which costs Rs 7,999 for an overall good deal.
