Google Tango's first smart phone

For the past few years, Augmented Reality has been a dream, but it is finally becoming a reality (not a pun). The Pokemon Go game became a rage, as people appreciated its AR mode and now, Lenovo has launched its first Google Tango smart phone, called Lenovo Phab 2 Pro. Google Tango has been a project in which the group members Google?s Technology and Advanced Projects have been working for the past few years, but it is only now that the project has seen the light in top form. So, if you've always wanted to see how dinosaurs stand next to you or if you want to see if a sof you want to buy fits in your space or not, well, Google Tango has it covered.

The Lenovo Phab 2 Pro is the first Google Tango smart phone and is the only one you can buy at this time (the Asus Zenfone AR arrives in the second quarter of 2017). The device has been making many headlines, all thanks to the nickname, "the first Tango device". However, the device is indeed a risk for Lenovo because there are many questions around the device, as well as Tango. Is Google Tango ready for prime time? Is the Phab 2 Pro a revolutionary AR device? Should you buy the first Tango phone or expect a more refined product? Well, we're sure you want to know how Tango's first phone goes. So, let's find out everything in our review of the Lenovo Phab 2 Pro. Let's start, okay?

In the frame

Before we start talking about the device itself, let's take a look at the contents of the Lenovo Phab 2 Pro box:

  • The Lenovo Phab 2 Pro
  • microUSB cable
  • Charger adapter
  • JBL headphones
  • Quick and guarantee start guides

While the Lenovo Phab 2 Pro box looks unique, the content inside is quite generic and is something we are used to seeing in most smart phones. The inclusion of JBL headphones is certainly a nice touch.

Design and hardware

Talking about the design and construction of the Lenovo Phab 2 Pro, the first thing to notice when you take the device for the first time in the huge size and weight of the device . With its huge 6, 4-inch screen and one-piece metal design, the Phab 2 Pro is by no means a device suitable for the pocket. If you thought the iPhone 7 Plus, Pixel XL or even the Nexus 6P are huge devices, well, pin it again.

The Lenovo Phab 2 Pro looks and feels like a beast. Measure 179, 8 x 88, 6 x 10, 7 mm and weighs some heavy 259 grams . If you plan to use the Phab 2 Pro as your daily controller, prepress to look very absurd when you are talking on the device.

If you forgive the substantial weight and size of the device, the Phab 2 Pro looks like most other Lenovo smartphones. The front part has a full Gorilla glass slab, with 2.5D curved edges . At the bottom, there are three navigation buttons and the top features a multicolored LED, an 8 MP camera, a headset and proximity sensors. The left side of the device has the SIM and microSD card tray, while the right side features the volume controls and the power / lock button. At the bottom, there is a microUSB port along with the speakers and the top has the 3.5mm headphone jack. While I like the fact that there is a 3.5mm connector, I would have preferred the USB Type-C port instead of the microUSB port that is now aging.

The back of the device is where the greatest action resides. Introduces the Tango logo (along with Lenovo's), the fingerprint sensor, he depth perception sensor huge and a rectangular bar that contains the double tone flash, the infrared emitter and the 16 MP camera. He Tango module presents a couple of cameras . One packages in an infrared emitter to determine the distance of the objects, while the other is a wide-angle camera with a fisheye lens to support the device's motion tracking system.
