Lenovo’s Phab Plus isn’t their first attempt at cloning the iPhone

Lenovo makes some really nice phones, including the very budget yet very powerful K3 Note (review). However, there’s a line of Lenovo phones that might not be to the taste of everyone reading this.

The Lenovo Sisley S90, as many of you might remember, was a phone that cloned the iPhone design (I really don’t want to be subtle about this). Lenovo probably think that the iPhone design still has some mileage in it, which is why the Phab Plus.

Techcrunch sum it up well. “As you know, the iPhone 6 comes in silver, gold and space gray. The Phab Plus comes in… titanium silver, champagne gold and gunmetal grey,” they write.


As for the specifications of this phone, it comes with an octa-core Snapdragon 615 SoC (that has been the year’s most popular yet one of the most criticized SoCs) with 2GB RAM, 32GB storage, a 13 mega-pixel rear camera, 5 mega-pixel front facing camera and a massive 6.8-inch screen.

It is the fact that the phone sits between a regular-sized phone and a tablet, combined with the US$299 price tag that the Chinese company is banking on to sell this phone.

Up and coming Chinese phone OEMs such as UMi, Elephone, etc. may not have the best after-sales service yet, but the companies are certainly not ripping off the iPhone anymore. Which is why it is somewhat shameful for a company of Lenovo’s calibre to do so.
