Lenovo Vibe P1m hands-on, first impressions
The third smartphone that Lenovo launched yesterday is the Vibe P1m, the less-powered sibling of the Vibe P1. The Vibe P1m sports a 5-inch HD display, MediaTek quad-core CPU, Android Lollipop, and a 4,000mAh battery.
You can check out our hands-on video of the Vibe S1, Vibe P1, and Vibe P1m below.
The Vibe P1m, although carrying a similar name of its more powerful brother, sports a different look. While the Vibe P1 is premium-looking, the Vibe P1m is more modest with its polycarbonate body yet looks and feels solid.
It has a 5-inch IPS display on the front with HD resolution which equates to a decent 294ppi. Situated above it are the earpiece and 5 megapixel front camera. Down below are three capacitive buttons for navigation.
Located up top are the microUSB port and headset jack, while down at the bottom are the speaker and microphone.
Like the Vibe P1, the Vibe P1m also has a OneKey Power Saver on the left. Found on the right are the volume rocker and power / lock button.
Flip it on its back and you will see the 8 megapixel camera, LED flash, and microphone. The backplate is removable which reveals the SIM and microSD card slots. The 4,000mAh battery, on the other hand, is non-removable.
On hand, the Vibe P1m is chunky like the Vibe P1 at a 9.5mm but lighter at 148g. It may not be eye-catching but it feels well-made, the chrome finish on the frame adds a nice touch, and it features a splash-proof nano coating which protects the device from rain and accidental spills.
