Unlike the competition in the duo smartphone has the same look, the Lenovo Vibe P1m has a different design as compared to the larger sibling. It is also smaller which means it is lighter and easier to hold with one hand. We do love the soft matte back making the grip better for the Lenovo Vibe P1m.

Unlike the larger Vibe P1, the Lenovo Vibe P1m has no app drawer. It is also customizable with Lenovo’s own theme store giving your phone a different look. Overall, the device is generally smooth though we have not downloaded anything yet except for social media apps.

We will be using the Lenovo Vibe P1m for two weeks as our daily driver. Our focus of our review will be the battery and the phone’s performance.
