Here’s a short hands on video from an actual Lenovo Vibe X unit from Android Authority
Its tempts you to buy considering the specs but there are downers when you take a closer look at the specs – no LTE, no expandable storage, small 2,000 mAh battery and pricey at P19,999. To tell you honestly, there are better phones with cheaper prices.Take for example Sony Xperia ZR, Sony Xperia SP, Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3. All of these phones have LTE and expandable storage at lower prices. You can add a few bucks and you will get flagship smartphones with LTE connectivity like the Apple iPhone 5c, Samsung Galaxy S4, LG G2 and Google Nexus 5.
Please Lenovo, LTE please!
