Lenovo S960 Vibe X: Super Slim 1080p Turbo Quad-core Smartphone (Php19,999)


Meet the Lenovo Vibe X

Lenovo has been on a roll lately when it comes to their hardware design. The Lenovo K900 is still one of the best designed phablets ever made and they even followed this up with the super thin duo of the S920 and S820. Yesterday they added a new smartphone to their already formidable line-up — the Lenovo S960 Vibe X. Measuring just 6.9mm thick, the Lenovo Vibe X is a super slim smartphone that’s packed with power and high quality materials. Powering it is MediaTek’s turbo quad-core processor paired with a generous serving of 2GB RAM. This set-up should be more than enough to give a seamless and fluid user experience given the demanding 1080p 5-inch screen.

Here’s a quick look at the complete specifications.

Too expensive at Php19,999?
Too expensive at Php19,999?

Design-wise, the Lenovo Vibe X is a winner. However the market, especially the budget conscious segment, will be hesitant to bite given the price tag. At Php19,999 the Lenovo Vibe X goes up against global powerhouses that can offer more powerful processors and most importantly LTE connectivity.

If you want to make a “statement” though this is probably one of the phones that can do the job.

  1. 2000mah battery. Very bad . Yung saken 2600mah ni ndi nga tumatagal ng isang araw sken maghapon lng … napakamahal tanga lng bbli nyan . Sobrang tanga

    1. iba iba ang use ng phone and iba iba taste ng tao. so not because magkaiba kau ng taste makes the other “tanga” as per your description.

  2. Definately not worth it..mas mahal pa sa note 2..and si hamak na mas ok ang g2..flop..its still your preference..but honestly, pang 15k lang dapat price nyan..

  3. Just bought the phone and I like it. It’s NOT slippery kse maganda back texture nia. No LTE but ok nman cia. I am on data plan pro di nman LTE plan so am good with it. Besides, masyado mahal kung LTE data plan. If you can afford that kind of plan to maximize LTE feature, then definitely go for a more expensive phone. S4? 27K pa rin ang market price and if you rather buy a 2nd hand phone na walang warranty at the same price, it’s your choice. I like how it looksm Super ganda cam and ung display is crisp. Oks lang ako sa battery nia kse halos the same lang sa iPhone5 ko. Comparing the viewing angles, mas ok ang vibe x compared sa Sony Xperia ZR ko. Yun lang masasabi ko. At 19,999, it’s already cheap. Hanap kau store where you can try it before you judge kse ako mismo na di fan ng Lenovo before really enjoyed this new gadget. If you wanna question my viewpoint, go ahead. But am saying this in comparison with smartphones I owned and actually use (Motorola Droid Razr, iPhone 5, Sony Xperia ZR)
