Today we’re going to compare Lenovo’s Vibe P1 (released in October 2015) and Microsoft’s Lumia 535 (released in December 2014) devices. The first one is a phablet with mid-range specs, while the other is a low end mid-tier phone running on Microsoft Windows Phone 8.1. In this article we’ll compare these two models and maybe you’ll decide to buy one of them.


The Vibe P1 measures 152.9×75.6×9.9mm and weights 189 grams. Its body is made entirely with metal, but there’s a plastic strip at the top whose role is to hide the SIM and microSD card slots, while the plastic strip from the bottom is only for effect. On the other hand, the Lumia 535 is slimmer and lighter, as it measures 140.2×72.4×8.8mm and weights 146 grams, but its back is made of glossy plastic and it’s curved on the edges.


The Vibe P1 has an IPS display of 5.5-inch that supports a resolution of 1920×1080 pixels at 401 ppi and is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3. The Lumia 535 features an IPS LCD display of 5-inch that supports a resolution of 960×540 pixels at 220 ppi and is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3.
