INTRODUCTION

Lenovo has been able to grow exceptionally in the smartphone markets. After they acquired Motorola Mobility, the company has been able to penetrate even more in the smartphone markets. They have been wise enough to leave the Moto brand as it is and in doing so they haven’t disturbed the market tandem, Motorola smartphones had with their customers. Talking about Lenovo’s in-house smartphones, they too seem to have a quite good hold of the smartphone markets. One of their smartphones that were launched last year was Lenovo Vibe C. The phone was launched to attract entry-level smartphone enthusiast, so let’s see how this smartphone works in real life.

DESIGN AND DISPLAY

The phone has a shiny appearance, all thanks to its smooth edges and a rather glossy front and back panels that give you a seamless bezel look. The phone comes with three soft-touch capacitive buttons that are not backlit. The volume rocker and power buttons are provided on the right edge of the phone, and the speaker has been provided in the lower part of the rear panel. The external dimensions of the phone are 143.5 x 71.8 x 9 mm (5.65 x 2.83 x 0.35 in) and it weighs 166 grams. The phone is handy enough and doesn’t weigh that much when carried around. The phone is available in two color variants i.e. black and white. The phone comes with a 5.0-inches IPS LCD Capacitive touchscreen that provides a screen resolution of 480 x 854 pixels and roughly corresponds to 294 ppi rich screen. The display is decent enough to get the job done. However, many users might feel the screen’s brightness could have been better. Sunlight legibility might suffer at times when the phone is used in bright light conditions. Overall, the phone looks stylish and has a decent display for an entry-level smartphone.

PERFORMANCE AND CONFIGURATION

The Lenovo Vibe C features a Quad-core 1.1 GHz Cortex-A7 processor backed by a Qualcomm MSM8909 Snapdragon 210 chipset. The processor can play light games and videos easily. However, one might not be able to play heavy games and videos on the phone, as the processor doesn’t carry that much power. The Adreno 304 GPU provided in the phone makes sure that the phone can provide a decent graphics performance. The processor is also backed by 1GB of RAM, which turns out to be enough for performing general functions. The phone runs on Android ecosystem, version 5.1.1 i.e. Lollipop. The phone comes with 8GB of internal storage, and the internal storage could be expanded up to 32GB using a microSD card. The phone supports 4G networks and also allows dual SIM support.

CAMERA AND MULTIMEDIA

The main camera features a 5-MP camera that is backed by autofocus and LED flashlight. Also, a 2-MP front camera has been provided in the phone. The primary camera has all the basic features like Continuous shooting, Digital zoom, Geotagging, Panorama, HDR, Touch focus, Face detection, White balance settings, ISO settings, Exposure compensation, Self-timer, and Scene mode. HD video recording would also be done by the camera at frames like 720p@30fps. The camera provided in the phone captures decent images if we say modestly. The camera performance is best when the images are captured in bright sunlight. However, the image quality significantly reduces when the lighting condition changes. The images captured in dim light conditions are not that impressive, and a lot of noise seems to creep in the photographs. The phone features a loudspeaker that gets sufficiently loud and a 3.5 mm audio jack is also provided in the phone.

BATTERY AND CONNECTIVITY

The phone comes with a 2300 mAh Li-Ion battery. The battery provided in the smartphone is removable, which again is a common thing observed in entry-level smartphones. Practically, the phone can easily run for a day with moderate to heavy usage. Talking about the connectivity options, the phone offers basic connectivity options, such as Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, hotspot, Bluetooth v4.0, A2DP, A-GPS, FM radio and microUSB version 2.0. The phone comes with two kinds of sensors i.e. accelerometer and proximity.
