What most consumers ask for in their smartphones is a ‘Great camera’ and respite from eerie ‘Android Lag’ that many pray won’t creep in after a period of usage. The new Vibe series phone tries real hard to appease the former of the two and you will soon be able to buy Lenovo Vibe Shot online for 25,999 INR.
Let’s talk about why the Vibe Shot will appeal to the shutter bug in you, apart from the DSLR centric design, before we dive into other features and specifications. The rear camera has a 16MP sensor, laser auto-focus, OIS, a dedicated key to directly enter pro-mode and a tri-color LED flash. The camera app compliments the primary purpose well by offering a ton of settings to toggle with. All that added up to a good camera experience, but not an extraordinary one, considering the premium price. The 8MP selfie shooter works pretty good too.
The metal + glass construction of Vibe X2 attracts loads of smudges, which is kind of a mood killer. Hardware under the hood shall also suffice for all basic and moderate users. There is Snapdragon 615 ticking at 1.5GHz, 3GB RAM, 32GB storage, option for up to 128GB microSD storage and a beefy 3000mAh battery, all working in tandem to deliver an uninterrupted photography session.
Should you buy it at 25,999 INR? Now that’s a bit tricky to say as of now. This Diwali season, the price is on the higher side and even all the perks aren’t assertive enough to remove all hesitations. The lowest price of Lenovo Vibe Shot is expected to slide down in weeks after the launch, and perhaps then it will be a good buy.
