Lenovo Vibe P1 And Vibe P1m Launched – Focus On Battery
Lenovo – the company that acquired Motorola from Google – has also continued to make smartphones under its own moniker. As of now, both companies are operating as separate, bringing different strategies and focus areas to the market.
Lenovo has thus launched two new phones that focus on one thing and one thing alone – battery life. The Lenovo Vibe P1 and P1m both feature humongous batteries of 5000mAh and 4000mAh respectively. In a world where phones are getting thinner and thinner, and batteries are getting smaller to compensate – Samsung’s Galaxy Note 5 has a battery smaller than that of the Galaxy Note 4 – Lenovo’s singular focus on battery life can carve a very valuable niche in the market.

Unlike some other attempts at making phones with a huge battery, Lenovo hasn’t given these phones specs from 2 years ago. Both the Vibe P1 and the Vibe P1m are brilliant phones in their own right. The Vibe P1 comes with a 5.5-inch full HD 1920×1080 display. It has a 1.5Ghz octa-core version of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 615, the best mid-range chip available right now, also soon in the Moto X Play, Xiaomi Mi4i, and many other phones. It comes with a now-necessary 3GB of RAM, which at least Lenovo understands is a must in 2015, unlike the baffling decision making of Google. Based on Android 5.0 Lollipop, it will run Lenovo’s Vibe UI skin, and feature a 13MP back camera and a 8MP front camera.
The P1’s smaller cousin, the Vibe P1m, will ostensibly be priced lower and features more modest specs. It comes with a 5-inch screen at 1280×720 resolution. Unlike the P1 that features is Qualcomm Snapdragon, the P1m comes with a MediaTek MT6735. It also features 2GB of RAM, and a 8MP rear camera with a 5MP front camera. The phone’s 4000mAh battery – while lesser than that of the P1 – is still much larger than pretty much any other phone out there.
The focus on battery life doesn’t stop at capacity – Lenovo has included a dedicated switch on both phones that launches it ‘battery saving’ mode at the click of a button. Whether battery saving mode is really needed on these phones is another matter, but what it does is leaves only a handful of apps useable and disables all others temporarily.
