Build of Lenovo Vibe P1m

Lenovo made a  good design phones and The lenovo vibe P1m kindly reminded me of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, the rear oval to the camera aperture and Single LED flash with Noise cancelling mic. The rear panel was made of plastic and rubberized  material added a better grip to the phone. The Single Metal ring at the center where at the Top lies both 3.5mm jack and Micro USB port for charging. Speakers and Mic Grills relay at bottom of device while at one side had a special Battery saving mode button toggle and other side had volume rocker and power button. Front had a capacitive keys at bottom while at top ear phone and front camera. Overall the Build was really good for Vibe P1m.

Software of Lenovo Vibe P1m

The Lenovo Vibe P1m came with Android 5.1 skinned with VibeUI. So over to say about the vibe UI which I used in Kitkat in some Devices like Lenovo S860 or Lenovo Vibe Z That wasn’t that polished experience to compare to what they offered in Lollipop 5.1. The Vibe UI is now better and Seems polished to the user experience. As usual The phone came with some bloatwares Like Guvera Music , facebook , Twitter , NoteBook, WeChat, Skype and many more so when you boot up the device for first time out of 16GB you will get about 9.69GB Usable memory. The UI is smooth and really good for daily usage. To total thumbs up for the software of Lenovo and Hope it push future updates to the device too which are much needed for customer satisfaction.

So the performance seems totally head to head for all these devices and Lenovo Vibe P1m manages to compete well in that case also. Talking about the Battery performance which showed me whooping 9 hours on screen time, which is totally fantastic and no other phone is here to compete it. We played games like Asphalt 8 which showed some frame drops at High level of settings which is pretty normal for this price point.

Camera of Lenovo Vibe P1m

Talking about the Camera, Actually to the point that its lots of expectation that I and you are putting into. I would say the camera isn’t impressive over to in this budget you get almost similar camera I wasn’t much impressed not the very best but its good at day light. So for Camera for me it isn’t good to my opinion.


Verdict of Lenovo Vibe P1m

Overall the Lenovo Vibe P1m is to have an impressive battery life of 9 Hours on Screen time which is more than enough for person who watches lots of movies, has to do emailing, social networking the product is definitely pitched to those. For those reasons I give the Product completely Pick.
