Remember the days when someone you knew, was using a tablet as their primary smartphone? You’re more likely to find a time traveller than someone who does that now. That hasn’t kept Lenovo from launching the Phab. A hybrid between a phablet (phone-tablet hybrid) and a tablet.

The Rs 11,999 phone-tablet comes in four colours and a 6.98-inch HD (720p) display. Under the hood, it pack a Snapdragon 410 -- slower than the Phab Plus which cost twice the price -- 1 GB of RAM and 16 GB expandable storage. It also has a 4,250 mAh battery that makes it weigh in at a hefty 250 grams.

The 13 megapixel camera and Android Lollipop 5.1 make it a desirable smartphone that might be just too big for most, but for the few who are looking for a bigger than big phone, this one seems like the best option out there.
