Lenovo Vibe P1M review
Lenovo Vibe P1M review,
After launching the Vibe X2 in November last year, Lenovo was expected to launch its successor, the Vibe X3 at MWC 2015. While it missed the launch date, the rumoured smartphone was recently spotted on China’s TENAA, which shed some light on its specifications. Now, according to Lenovo’s teaser image, the company is all set to hold a press event in November 16, where it is expected to unveil the Vibe X3.
From the leaked image that we’ve come across earlier, the Vibe X3 is set to come with a new design. The Vibe X2 came with a distinct three layer design, whereas the Vibe X3 could sport a metal frame. Up front, there are stereo speakers, one at the top and the other at the bottom. At the back, there is a fingerprint sensor, just below the camera module.
Lenovo Vibe X3 specifications and features: Based on the TENAA listing, the Vibe X3 is set to come with a 5.5-inch full HD (1080p) display. It could be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 808 SoC (two Cortex-A57 and four Cortex-A53 cores) and paired with 3GB of RAM. On the storage front, it is expected to come with 32GB of onboard storage and a microSD card slot for further expansion.
In the photography department, the Vibe X3 could sport a 21-megapixel rear camera with dual-LED flash and a front-facing 8-megapixel selfie camera. With connectivity options such as 4G LTE support, Bluetooth and Wi-FI, it is expected to run on Android 5.1 Lollipop out-of-the-box.
As of now, there are not enough details about the battery capacity, price and availability. However, with three days to go for the press event, we expect more information to pour in.
speed of camera is on the lower side, though compared to what other phones give in this price bracket it is good enough. But the phone may take a second or two while focussing in tricky situations and if the subject is moving, such as a pet dog, you will find it very difficult to get blur-free images with the Vibe P1M.
In low light, the performance is strictly average. Though again, if you use the phone carefully the Vibe P1M can click some excellent low light photos. But mostly, due to aggressive noise reduction, you will notice smearing of details.
The front camera is good enough for selfies in good light. In low light, you will not get any image from the front camera that you will like to share on Facebook. The video recording too is average. The phone can record 720p videos but they lack detail. We wouldn’t use the Vibe P1M to shoot the birthday party of a kid.
