Lenovo Vibe X

Lenovo has had its fair share of the mobile phone market. Since their venture into the mobile phone industry, they’ve created phones that people love, not only because they are cheaper, but because they pack a punch as well.

Today, we are going to be talking about the Lenovo Vibe X. This is one of their mid-range phone offerings. Although this mobile phone was released in 2014, it pretty much remains a solid choice even today.

Let’s first talk about the design. The Lenovo Vibe X is a very slim and lightweight phone. It only has a thickness of 6.9mm and it also only weighs 121g. Considering this is a 5-inch phone, Lenovo outdid themselves by bringing you a mobile phone that you can slide in and out of your pocket without worries. In fact, you might want to check the Lenovo Vibe X from time to time to know if it is still there (because, really, this mobile phone is so lightweight).

At the back of the mobile phone lies a matte back cover with a shiny base at the bottom. It is easy to grip the mobile phone because of its curved edges and I don’t really feel it slipping from my grasp.

The power button is separated from the volume rockers as the former is now located on the left side of the phone while the latter is located on the right side. A microSD card slot is also situated just a few millimeters below the volume controls.

At the top lies the 3.5mm headphone jack and the microUSB port (or charging port) is located at its usual place at the bottom of the mobile phone.

The display Lenovo Vibe X is quite good. It has a 5-inch IPS display screen with a resolution of 1920×1080 and a pixel density of 441ppi. It is also made out of Corning Gorilla glass 3, which is a special type of glass architecture that protects your phones from scratches and impacts.

As for the operating system, the Lenovo Vibe X has an Android Kitkat 4.4 as its base and it is also layered with the MiUI interface. The MiUI has been touted as the iPhone copycat because of its semblance to the popular IOS interface. There is no app drawer and all of your apps will populate the home screen.

The Lenovo Vibe X has a 13-megapixel camera and an LED flash that comes with it. The mobile phone’s camera is a little bit lackluster. Although it captures great photos given the right lighting conditions, the colors are a little bit off and it is not as vibrant as that of other mobile phones out there. Still, it is good but not really something to brag about.

Lastly, the Lenovo Vibe X Android mobile phone comes with the MediaTek MTK6589T quad-core processor with 1.5GHz clock speeds, a PowerVR SGX544MP GPU and 2GB of RAM. And, to power all of these things, the phone also comes with a 2,000 MaH battery, which by today’s standards, isn’t a lot.

All of these things accounted for, the Lenovo Vibe X is still a good mid-range phone. Although it severely lacks on the battery and camera department, all of the other features are really good.

The Lenovo Vibe X costs only $320.
