The highlight of Lenovo Phab 2 Plus is its feature-rich camera hardware. It boasts dual-13MP cameras placed one-top-of-the-other with f/2.2 aperture, dual-tone LED flash, Laser autofocus and PDAF.

The most interesting feature of the Phab 2 Plus' camera is its AR Augmented Reality (AR) feature. The AR mode, allows users to swap backgrounds with virtual characters or cartoons in to images and videos with superimposed effects [watch demo video below].

That being said, the AR mode feature in the Phab 2 Plus is nowhere close to its high-tech sibling, the Phab 2 Pro, which is the commercial variant of Google Project Tango smartphone.
