Reviews for the Lenovo Vibe S1

75% The mid-range smartphone category has a new contender
Source: Tech2.in.com English
Lenovo Vibe S1 is certainly a breath of fresh air in the sub Rs 20,000 price bracket. The design on this phone makes it really stand out from competition. Only OnePlus X offers a comparable design. But the Lenovo Vibe S1 leaves the OnePlus X behind in a lot of departments including camera and battery life performance.

As far as its looks go, the Lenovo Vibe S1 could give phones even twice as expensive a run for their money. The Vibe S1 is sleek, beautiful and built with quality in mind. It also has an excellent screen, good performance and great cameras with a few interesting tricks that will appeal to selfie lovers. However, there are some key shortcomings as well. The capacitive keys are not backlit, the appearance of the UI still lacks finesse, the second SIM slot is hybrid and forces you to choose between dual-SIM connectivity and expandable storage, and the battery life is average at best. Additionally, it also lacks some useful features that could have helped it stand out, such as fast charging and a gyroscopic sensor. Despite this, the Lenovo Vibe S1 is still a capable smartphone that will appeal to camera and selfie lovers, as well as those whose top priority is style.

Model: The Lenovo S1 is a 5 inch (display) dual nano SIM smartphone, which was launched in November 2015. It is powered by a 1.7 GHz octa core MediaTek MT 6752 processor coupled with 3 GB of RAM. It comes with 32 GB of internal storage, which can be further expanded via a microSD card up to 128GB. This is really ideal for high-end games. The display, which features a Gorilla Glass 3, disperses reflections in such a way that the images will always appear softer and richer thanks to the impeccable curved glass. The IPS display is bright and has rather good viewing angles.

The matte finish plastic cover and the metal frame around its sides give an elegant look. The rear is curved to provide nice ergonomic for a comfortable grip and it weighs a mere 131 grams. The dual front facing camera makes it the world's first dual selfie camera consisting of an 8 MP camera with BSI sensor for crisp image quality and a 2 MP camera. A 13 MP autofocus camera is mounted at the rear which comes with a dual color flash. This device is powered by a 2500 mAh battery with a standby time of 240 hours. Other notable features for this model include a proximity sensor, an ambient light sensor, an accelerometer, Bluetooth 4.0, and GPS.

ARM Mali-T760 MP2: The ARM Mali-T760 MP2 offers two cores (hence the name MP2) clocked with up to 700 MHz (resulting in 48 GFLOPS). These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games.
