Physical Overview & Built Quality

Lenovo Vibe P1m has a glossy plastic finish to it and build quality is good not great, which is an acceptable sacrifice considering the price point. It is a bit heavier owing to the 4000 mAh battery underneath but it does not feel bulky. This handset comes with a P2i nano-coating making it splash proof which simply means that you don’t need to worry if it gets wet in the rain, but you can’t take it for a swim with you.

A metal like band (plastic) runs around frame of the smartphone giving it a trendy look. The Volume rocker and the Power button are placed on the right side of the smartphone.
