Lenovo Phab Plus Camera Software
When we pick up a phone of this size, basically we do not choose it for shooting as the size of the phone is not comfortable to hold and click. We need fast and easy to use software to click images without any complications.
The Lenovo Phab Plus has fast and responsive camera UI. When you switch to the camera and hold the phone in landscape orientation, you will find two black bands on both the sides of the screen which contain the camera operation buttons and options.

Lenovo Phab Plus Camera Samples
The Lenovo Phab Plus is a device that does not have a lot to offer in camera department but it surely has a convincing 13 MP camera at the back. The images produced by the primary camera looked good in terms of details and clarity, where the colour production was not as good as the other two. Natural Light images were more realistic and natural, where it showed a little lag in shutter while clicking in dark light.
The front camera is also an average performer and gives convincing results. We expected a better camera on the front, as the huge screen has all the pros needed to compliment a good photograph.
