Phab2 Pro

New Phone Alert || Lenovo Phab 2 Pro Review

I was introduced to this phone this past June at Tech World in San Fran. I finally received mine in the mail yesterday and was SUPER excited to see what it can do and how it'll work with my everyday life style. The Phab 2 Pro is the world's first Tango-enabled smartphone. Tango is a new technology from Google that enables augmented reality (AR) gaming and utilities. All you have to do is look through the Phab 2 Pro, and you'll see objects and information overlaid onto the real world.

Phab 2 Pro $499.99

One of the major issues I have with this phone is that only takes GSM SIM cards and I'm a Verizon user which uses CDMA sim cards. Now, if someone can unlock this phone so I can really use it let me know please lol. Besides that, it has a beautiful display on the large screen, great for watching videos & gaming. The Tango system is really cool, but I can't see myself using it everyday. Whenever I show Tango to my friends, they pretty much say "Ooh like that Poke'Mon app right?!" lol. The phone speakers sounded great. I also like that the headphone jack is at the top of the phone. The front and back cameras and video capturing were excellent no matter the time of day. Nice shape, a lil big, but thats cool, I don't mind it even though I'm not big on BIG phones. Since there isn’t a case made for this phone yet, I had a bit of anxiety of dropping the phone because the phone is a bit slippery. Since I can't really use it as a "phone" yet, it's a pretty cool tablet for right now.
