Reviews for the Lenovo Vibe Shot

Several years ago the attractive design was just about the only standout feature of a mobile phone for the lack of other notable features. Today, the tables have turned. The features are numerous but the designs have become so plain that a good design, which is rich in character, can easily stick out. As if consumers have almost had their fill of advanced features and they are after that elusive combination of looks and functionality that few phones can deliver.

The Lenovo Vibe Shot is a beautifully crafted smartphone for shutterbugs. The build and finish are great, and you get a vivid display, good battery life and a full-featured camera system. The software, while fluid for the most part, does have a number of glitches which Lenovo needs to fix soon. It would also have been nice if we had some modes for video recording other than the standard one. Finally, the phone is a fingerprint nightmare so keeping it clean is not the easiest thing to do. If you're looking purely at image and video quality then there are older options such as the Samsung Galaxy S5 (Review | Pictures) and the Sony Xperia Z3 Compact (Review | Pictures), which still pack a punch and are priced the same or even lower. However, they lack features such as the infrared focus system and OIS. Given its software bugs and limited video capabilities, the Vibe Shot feels a bit expensive at its current price of Rs. 25,000. If Lenovo can fix these things with future software updates and drop the price a little, then it will have a strong chance of disrupting the mid-range segment.

If camera is of prime importance to you, then you can consider picking up the Lenovo Vibe Shot. But, if a better overall performing smartphone is what you are looking for, then there are better options available in the market.
