EXPERT REVIEWS

INTRODUCTION

Lenovo has started to experiment with its smartphones by providing each smartphone with its distinct personalities. Lenovo launched its Lenovo Vibe X2 Pro smartphone last year in 2015. The phone packed impressive hardware under its hood and came out with an affordable price tag. So, let’s see how this smartphone fares in the real world at this current price range.

DESIGN AND DISPLAY

Talking about the external dimensions of the phone, it has physical dimensions as 5.76 x 2.80 x 0.28 inches, which makes it a decent sized smartphone. The phone weighs 140 gm, which makes it have a rather optimum weight, too. Regarding the colour options of the phone, it comes in three colour variants i.e. Champagne Gold, Electric Blue and Rock Pink. Overall, the phone looks like a shiny rectangular chocolate. Talking about the display of this phone, it features a 5.3 inches IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen display that provides a screen resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels that roughly translates to 416 pixels-per-inch pixel density. The display of this phone works out well and captures the user’s attention.

PERFORMANCE AND CONFIGURATION

The phone is powered by an Octa-core (4x1.5 GHz Cortex-A53 & 4x1.0 GHz Cortex-A53) processor which has a Qualcomm MSM8939 Snapdragon 615 chipset. The processor is competent enough to play heavily encoded videos, but the same can’t be said about playing graphic intensive games. We did observe that the smartphone overheated while playing heavy applications. The smartphone offers 32GB of internal memory, which could be expanded up to 256GB using the second SIM card slot provided in the phone. The phone runs on Android platform and works on Android version 4.4 i.e. KitKat with the help of Lenovo’s heavily customized skin, which we do not appreciate much. To give the users a lag free experience the smartphone is provided with a 2GB of RAM. The phone supports 4G/LTE networks and allows dual SIM support.

CAMERA AND MULTIMEDIA

The phone features a 13 MP primary camera that is supported by a LED flashlight and features Geo-tagging, touch focus, face detection, panorama, HDR. The front shooter sports a 13MP camera, too. Video recording can be done by the camera at frames like 1080p@30fps. The images captured by the camera are somewhat decent but may lack colour reproduction and depth, at times. Also, images snapped in low light conditions are barely workable. Talking about multimedia, the smartphone features loudspeaker and 3.5mm audio jack with active noise cancellation. The phone is packed a range of sensors, i.e. accelerometer, proximity, compass. The messaging sector of the phone has been put into the SMS (threaded view), MMS, Email, Push Mail, IM and the browser support HTML5 with no java support. The photo/video editor, Document viewer has also been added to the phone.

BATTERY AND CONNECTIVITY

The battery provided in the smartphone is 2410 mAh Li-Po non-removable battery that fails to work for a complete day even with moderate usage. The smartphone has connectivity functions, such as Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/nac, dual-band, Wi-Fi hotspot, Bluetooth version 4.0 with A2DP and LE, A-GPS, GLONASS, FM Radio and microUSB v2.0.
