Lenovo has been producing smartphones with large batteries for quite a while, like the 4,000mAh-packing A5000, P70, and K80. Now, the company wants to step it up a notch by launching the Vibe P1 with a 5,000mAh battery. Not only that, it is clad in aluminum, sports a fingerprint sensor, and carries a not-so-hefty Php15K price tag. Is the Vibe P1 worth getting? Find out in our review below.

Design and Construction

One of the first things you’ll notice about the Vibe P1 is its attractive design and premium build. The front part reminds us of the OnePlus 2. Dominating the front is a 5.5-inch IPS display with Full HD resolution or 401ppi and mounted with Gorilla Glass 3. The display is sharp and vibrant with good colors and viewing angles.

Above it are the earpiece and the 5 megapixel front-facing camera. Down below is the physical home button that also doubles as the fingerprint scanner, and at its left and right sides are illuminated capacitive buttons for Recent apps and Back.

Situated on the left side is the OneKey Power Saver switch to turn on its power saving mode. Found on the right side are the buttons for the volume and power/lock.

Right up top are the headset jack and pinhole for the microphone. This top part is also removable which reveals a SIM tray for two nano-sized SIM cards and a separate slot for the microSD.

Down at the bottom are the microUSB port as well as the speaker and microphone.

Flip it on its back and you will see the curved metallic body which reminds us of the HTC One. Here you can see the 13 megapixel camera with dual-tone LED flash and NFC.

On hand, the Vibe P1 feels premium which is not common for a device priced under Php15K. It’s slightly hefty at 187g and a bit chunky at 9.9mm (justified given the 5,000mAh battery) but it has this certain appeal that makes you want to hold it every now and then. Overall, this is one of the nicest phones that Lenovo has released to date.

Got my P1 last week, from Hello Mobile SM MOA. For 6months 0% interest. olryt \m/

For me:
~ Camera = average lang, nothing special for me. (although ok lang sakin kasi hindi camera and priority ko hehe)
~ Performance = haven’t encounter any lags, hindi din xa mabilis maginit.
~ Battery = SUPERB! last up to 1.5 to 2 days of medium to heavy usage. 5-100% of charging in less than 1.5 hrs.

Nothing good about the camera, it is the worst that I have ever used on a phone (smart or not).

Very poor indoors, low detail and bad focussing. Had to return it to the seller. Too bad about that, as the battery life and incredibly quick charging are amazing.

There’s may be something wrong with the unit you got. Focusing speed on my P1 is superb (thanks to Phase Detection Auto-Focus). And yeah, 1h 20m fro 15-100% on a 5000mAh battery is aweome.

Got mine from Hello SM Bicutan. Swerte, kasi paisa-isa lang ang kuha nila ng P1.

Bought mine today. Not one bit of regret.

Oh, and VIBE UI can be replaced with the built-in Lollipop UI. Long press at the home screen, preference, default launcher, choose Android.

I think dapat na incorporate to sa review. Very important since vibe UI is one of the cons.
