Description

The dual-SIM PHAB features a 7-inch 720x1280 resolution IPS LCD display and is powered by a quad-core 64-bit Qualcomm processor. There are 1GB of RAM and 16GB of expandable storage memory on-board. Driven by a 4250mAh battery, the phab should be quite a long-lasting one with its frugal chipset, and it's also rather generous in its array of "bonus" features - a 13MP auto-focus rear camera with flash, a 5MP fixed-focus front camera, a 3 x mic array (for noise cancellation and group talking), and Dolby Atmos 3D Surround Sound support. Not exactly stuff that you'd expect to come onto a budget tablet that makes phone calls, but this is Lenovo we're talking about here.

  • Pixel density:

    Pixel density - The pixel density of a display represents the number of pixels over an area of one inch. It’s measured in “pixels per inch”, or ppi. The higher the number, the more detailed and good-looking the display is.

    • 210 ppi
  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.

  • FCC measured SAR:

    FCC measured SAR - Working closely with federal health and safety agencies, such as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the FCC has adopted limits for safe exposure to radiofrequency (RF) energy. These limits are given in terms of a unit referred to as the Specific Absorption Rate (SAR), which is a measure of the amount of radio frequency energy absorbed by the body when using a mobile phone. The FCC requires cell phone manufacturers to ensure that their phones comply with these objective limits for safe exposure. Any cell phone at or below these SAR levels (that is, any phone legally sold in the U.S.) is a "safe" phone, as measured by these standards. The FCC limit for public exposure from cellular telephones is an SAR level of 1.6 watts per kilogram (1.6 W/kg).

    • Head:
      • 0.75 W/kg
    • Body:
      • 0.67 W/kg
    • Simultaneous Transmission:
      • 1.55 W/kg
