If we talk about successful smartphone manufacturers in the market, Lenovo does come into our minds. Not only has it managed to capture a fair share of the market share in budget segment of the smartphones, but it has also been recently venturing in the high-end flagship smartphones, too. Adding to its current arsenal of budget smartphones, Lenovo, silently launched its “Lenovo Vibe A” smartphone in the Russian markets. It is also believed that the Lenovo Vibe A is the successor to the existing Lenovo A1000 smartphone, which was launched last year in 2015. The best part about the Lenovo Vibe A is that it somehow manages to be even more economical than its predecessor, Lenovo A1000, which according to us is a pretty big feat as the general trend is somewhat opposite.
It is now easily observable that Lenovo tries to name their non-Moto based handsets as Vibe, which is then inherently followed by a letter. One can fairly argue now that Lenovo Vibe A might be the starting of its very own series of smartphones. The A line of smartphones from Lenovo has achieved a new distinction, as it has managed to achieve one of the lowest price tag in budget segment of the smartphones.
Talking about the external dimensions of the phone, it has a physical dimensions as 4.90 x 2.52 x 0.42 inches, which makes it easy to carry. The phone weighs only 132 grams, thus making it easy for its users to use for the long duration of time. Regarding the color variants of the phone, it only comes in two color variants i.e. pearl white and onyx black. Talking about the specifications of this phone, the Lenovo Vibe A features a 4.0 inches display that provides a screen resolution of 480 x 800 pixels that roughly translates to 233 pixels-per-inch pixel density. It offers multi-touch up to two fingers.
The phone is powered by a 1.3 GHz Cortex-A7 Quad-core processor which is backed by a Spreadtrum SC7731G chipset. The smartphone offers 4GB of internal memory, which could be expanded up to 32GB using the microSD card slot provided in the phone. The phone runs on Android platform and works on Android version 5.1 i.e. Lollipop. To make it the user-friendly interface, the smartphone is backed by a 512-MB RAM. The phone offers dual-SIM functionality but unfortunately, does not support 4G/LTE networks.
Even at the low price tag, the phone features a 5-MP primary camera that is supported by a flashlight and a 0.3 MP VGA fixed-focus camera as the front shooter. The camera works decently, but you cannot expect brilliant pictures from it. Talking about multimedia, the phone features a loudspeaker, 3.5mm audio jack. The phone supports MP4/H.264 player, MP3/WAV/eAAC+ player, Photo/video editor and a Document viewer.
Having topped with a 1700 mAh Li-Po removable battery, the phone can work for an entire day with moderate to heavy usage. The smartphone also backs the essential functions, such as Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n and hotspot, Bluetooth version 2.1 with A2DP, A-GPS, FM Radio and microUSB version 2.0.
