Review of Lenovo Vibe X Features:

Hardware and Display

Lenovo-Vibe-Z (1)

The design of the new Lenovo Vibe X is quite impressive and it looks like a quality smartphone, however it does not have a metal body like some of the previous Lenovo smartphones which can be a negative for this smartphone. The Vibe X has an impressive 5 inches IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen display with 16M colors. It has a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels and it is a multitouch smartphone with a Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection. The smartphone has Full HD resolution display screen. The smartphone is available in Black and Silver colors.

Processor and Operating System Details

The smartphone has a Quad-Core 1.5 GHz Cortex A7 Processor and a Mediatek MT6589T chipset. This is a powerful processor and is expected to deliver well in terms of performance of the smartphone. The Vibe X operates on the Android 4.2 Jelly Bean Operating System which is one of the latest versions of the operating systems.

Memory and Camera

The Vibe X has no extendable memory slot which is a huge negative in terms of memory capacity of the smartphone. However it is available in both 16 GB as well as 32 GB versions so the customers can choose according to their phone memory needs. A plus point is that the smartphone has 2 GB RAM which is an advantage in that price segment of smartphones. A major selling point of the smartphone is that it has a 13 MP primary camera with many features including LED Flash and video recording. The secondary camera is also 5 MP camera which is really impressive.

Battery and Sound

The Vibe X has a Li-Po Non-removable 2000 mAh battery. This feature could have been slightly better as many smartphones that are priced lower than the Vibe X have more powerful batteries. It has a standard sound system with standard features like 3.5 mm jack and loudspeaker.

Other Features & Price:

The other features are also quite impressive. The smartphone has a HTML5 browser and is available on 2G and 3G networks. The smartphone is available at the price of Rs. 25,999 which puts it in the middle segment of the smartphone market. Compared to some other smartphones in this segment the Vibe X is a little slow which is unfortunate.

Overall it is an impressive smartphone launch by Lenovo that will most probably help it gaining more ground in the smartphone market across the world.
