It was on the eve of the IFA Berlin event in September 2015 when Lenovo announced the 5000 mAh powered Vibe P1 and earlier today, it was formally launched in the Indian market with a price tag of INR 15,999. While it has fairly decent specifications, there are several contenders that would suggest better options for that price range.

Here’s a quick review of the Lenovo Vibe P1!

Physical Overview

The Vibe P1 has a nice glossy body with a good sturdy feel to it although it does feel a tad heavier than most phones nowadays thanks to the 5000 mAh battery.

The volume and power buttons are on the right side while the left side has a Power-saving button that instantly kicks the phone into diet-mode to conserve battery usage. The top has a 3.5 mm audio jack and the bottom has the micro-USB port along-with the Speaker grill and the microphone. The only physical button at the lower edge of the phone is the Home button that doubles up as the Fingerprint reader and has a nice feel to it.

The micro SD card is not directly accessible and it takes up the second SIM card slot. Completing the setup is the 5.5″ IPS capacitive display that has really clear and vibrant colors thanks to the full-HD 1080 x 1920 resolution with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 to protect it.

While there are several contenders out there that come with an Octa-core processor, Fingerprint sensor, 4G support and in some cases, 3 GB of RAM, the unique feature of the Lenovo Vibe P1 would undoubtedly be its 5000 mAh battery.
