“The Lenovo Vibe P1 features a 5,000mAh battery that offers up to 44 hours of talk time”
At IFA 2015 this year, Lenovo showcased two devices in its long battery life smartphone lineup, the Vibe P1 (first impressions) and Vibe P1m (first impressions). Both smartphones feature a OneKey Power Saver switch to instantly enable a power saving mode, and support reverse charging to charge other USB devices. Among the two phones, the Vibe P1 is the more premium of the two, with a metal body and a fingerprint sensor in tow. It features a large 5,000mAh battery that supports Rocket Charging, which Lenovo says can charge up to 2,000mAh of the battery in just 30 minutes. The remaining specs include a 5.5-inch full HD display, octa-core Snapdragon 615 CPU, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal expandable storage, 13MP/5MP cameras, Android 5.1.1 Lollipop, dual-SIM and 4G LTE. The Vibe P1 was recently launched in India at an affordable price of Rs 15,999. We’ve got the device in our labs, and we’re going to begin by taking a look inside the retail box.
The Vibe P1 comes packaged in a long, slender rectangular box. Opening up the lid reveals the smartphone right on top, and just like the Vibe S1, it comes pre-fitted with a clear plastic case. Underneath the phone you’ll find a screen protecter. Below this is a small cardboard cover which holds the quick start guide and warranty documentation. A small compartment in the side conceals the two-pin wall charger, which is rated at 2A and supports fast charging. At the very bottom, you’ll find a USB cable, as well as a handy USB OTG adapter.
That rounds up the Vibe P1’s box contents. We’ll be putting the smartphone to the test in the coming weeks to bring you our verdict.
