Top 6 Winning Features of the Lenovo Vibe P1

Lenovo launched in the country a few days ago the Vibe P1 – a feature-packed smartphone with an aluminum body, large battery, and fingerprint scanner. Priced at Php14,999, take a look at the six winning features you’re getting from Lenovo’s new smartphone.

1) Premium build – The Vibe P1 features a curved aluminum rear in addition to the Gorilla Glass 3 on the front. However, this might turn off users who prefer smartphones with a slim and light build.

2) Large 5,000mAh battery with Quick Charge – The Vibe P1 is one of the few smartphones in the market right now with that battery capacity (the other one is the Starmobile UP Max). In addition, it supports USB OTG Charging, Lenovo Rocket Charge aka Quick Charge, and a power saver switch called the OneKey Power Saver.

3) Fingerprint scanner – Lenovo equipped the Vibe P1 with a fingerprint scanner for better security. It’s quick and responsive, however, it can only register up to two fingerprints.

4) 13MP rear camera with phase-detection AF – We’ve been playing around with the Vibe P1’s camera and so far we’re liking the image quality and quick auto-focus. Other smartphones that feature phase-detection AF are the Samsung Galaxy Note 5, Sony Xperia M5, and Apple iPhone 6.

5) WiFi Boost and NFC – The Vibe P1 also has a feature called “WLAN Signal Boost” which automatically boosts WiFi signal to improve connection when signal is weak. In addition, it also has NFC which is uncommon in Android smartphones.

6) 32GB internal storage with dedicated microSD card slot – It may not be an extravagant feature but it’s good to know that it starts with 32GB of internal storage. Not only that, it also has a dedicated microSD card slot instead of going for the hybrid option (microSD card on SIM 2 slot).

    The one that beats them all is that it has the 615. Damn Qualcomm must be giving them away for free!

    Can this phone be easily rooted?

    1. Did you got the update to enable the stock Lollipop UI? YouTube videos show reviewers got the option after an update.

    2. In real life usage, how’s the 5000 mAh?

    3. Does it really have insufficient screen brightness as other reviews have claimed?

    from a user who’s been using samsung ever since, note 4 user now. could you please clarify some few features?

    1) does the finger print scanner also function as home key?
    2) does the capacitive back and option key light up? baka isipin ng ibang tao na maarte, pero if you’re using the phone at night time or dark surroundings, it’s annoying if kinakapa mo pa yung capacitive buttons.
    3) back capacitive key is on the left and option capacitive is on the right side? samsung is reversed.

    i’ve been looking for a secondary mid range phone. bought an asus zenfone 2, kaso nahirapan akong mag adjust. nasanay ako masyado sa samsung. binenta ko na lang asus. XD

    Here’s a lenovo dilemma. Can you compare the vibe p1 with the ZUK z1? At almost the same price point, which would you suggest is the better buy?

    • Avatar for Isssma Isssma says:

      I think that depends. Zuk Z1 has a better overall design. but no Micro SD and smaller battery will make the Vibe p1 better for power users. Zuk Z1 has a better processor, so it will have better performance. They cater to different users :)
