Lenovo has emerged as a promising player in the Mobile business in the past few years. By launching phones such as K3 Note, K4 note and the vibe series it has grabbed some attention here in india. It has done similar with the Vibe X3 too.
So let’s dive into the full review:
The Vibe X3 may be a camera first handset, one that Lenovo needed, especially to make a mark in the existing population. Vibe X3 also shows the balance of good design and aesthetics too.
Build Quality And Design
Since Lenovo acquired Motorola we can see a significant influence of Motorola in the design and aesthetic of the handset which now reflects a lot of metal and a prominent curved back.
The Front houses front facing speakers, a 5.5 inch Full HD display and glass which is much larger than the screen itself. The glass is Gorilla Glass 3, providing much-needed scratch resistance to the mix.
Vibe X3 has a good set of hardware, 32GB of storage along with 3 GB of RAM. An impressive 21MP shooter with excellent low light performance, along with a 3500mAh battery.
Here is the full spec list:

The rear camera is one of the best at this price point, equipped with an impressive low light capable camera, you will almost always be impressed with the images. The f/2.0 lens also helps considerably with the depth of field and subjects do tend to pop out with, especially if you are in close range. You also have the ability to capture 4k video using the rear camera.
The front camera is brilliant for selfies, close up shots are always in focus, and the 8MP of resolution will help you get all the detail you need for the mugshot.
Performance and Battery
The phone will manage to be your daily driver without requiring optimization for a very long time. Games work well, and the Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 holds well in the area, downloading large games is not a problem, as 32 GB of onboard storage and an expandability up to 128GB have you covered with that.
Vibe X3, offers up two sim card slots, or One SIM and One microSD slot, thanks to the hybrid SIM tray. The phone will offer up 4G networks in areas where available.
The battery-life on the 3500mAh battery equipped Lenovo Vibe X3 is also impressive, giving you a good day’s use. You will find yourself being able to keep the screen on upwards of 6 hours on any given day.
The phone offers up good specs, excellent build quality and great security with a conveniently placed fingerprint scanner. However the Rs. 19,999 price mark can disappoont some people as the SOC is fairly old now and doesnt perform that great.
At this price range there arent much choices but you can look out for One Plus X or can check out Xiaomi Redmi Note 3.
