O+ Fab Elite 2.0 First Impressions
O+ USA just announced a new member of their growing Fab family. Here is a 6.5” phablet powered by a 1.7 Octa-Core processor with Android 4.4 KitKat on-board, the O+ Fab Elite 2.0.
Out of the box, O+ included their complimentary Sennheiser stereo headset, and usual smartphone kit. Plus, there’s a smart flip-cover case that closely resembles those of Samsung’s.
The device initially feels solid on hand but the fact that it has a gigantic 6.5” display and generous bezel, it could be tiresome to hold it with one hand. Due to the size, the power button is located on the right side while the volume rocker sits on the opposite side.
Build-wise the Elite 2.0 doesn’t really disappoint. Also, the IPS display is bright enough to be visible here at the beach. If there is one thing I will quibble is the over-all design. It looks like a Samsung Galaxy S4 mimic from the home button to the camera and LED flash placement.
Initial photos from the main 13-megapixel sensor are fairly decent but have muted colors. Check out the samples below to see it for yourself.

Performance from the Octa-core delivers with an AnTuTu 5 benchmark score of 30,316 but the 1GB of RAM can limit its multi-tasking capabilities.
