Lenovo Vibe Shot hands-on and first impressions

lenovo-vibe-shot-hands-on (1)

Lenovo unveiled the photography-centric Vibe Shot at MWC earlier this year. While it has yet to launch the smartphone in India, it did showcase the device at an event in New Delhi today. The focus of the event was unsurprisingly, the smartphone s photographic capabilities. We spent some time with the smartphone at the event, and here are our first impressions.

The Lenovo Vibe Shot is quite the looker, and in terms of design is much closer to a point-and-shoot camera, rather than a smartphone. It boasts ample amount of glass and metal. The metal frame and the metallic strip taking about one-third of the back panel add quite a bit of character to the smartphone.

The top houses the 3.5mm audio jack, while at the bottom are the micro-USB port and the speaker grille. The left houses the SIM card slot, while the right has a myriad of buttons, including the volume rocker, power button, a dedicated camera button and a switch to toggle between Auto and Pro modes. While the design aspects are impressive, a couple of issues we had were that the smartphone was prone to attract fingerprints and the handset s corners were a tad too sharp.

The display is quite impressive, even outdoors, and the touch experience has nothing to complain about. Under the hood is a Snapdragon 615 octa-core processor paired with Adreno 405 GPU and 3GB of RAM. On paper at least this should be enough to handle most day-to-day tasks quite easily.

The talking point of this smartphone however is its photographic chops. It features a 16-megapixel camera at the back with infrared autofocus and optical image stabilization, which Lenovo claims can focus at 2x speeds compared to normal autofocus. Up front is an 8-megapixel selfie camera.

The entire experience of clicking a photo too is quite fast. Even with the display off, double clicking on the shutter button starts the camera. When you toggle the switch to the Pro mode, a whole bunch of settings are displayed on the app, which is something that will be appreciated by serious photographers. We will have a more detailed look at the camera when we have reviewed the Vibe Shot.

Judging by the specifications, it should be priced somewhere close to Xiaomi Mi 4 or Asus Zenfone 2. If the company does launch it in that price range, the Vibe Shot s photographic chops especially the presence of optical image stabilization will give it a huge advantage over Xiaomi and Asus smartphones.
