Предварительный обзор Lenovo Vibe S1 (S1a40) - телефон для селфи

 

Две камеры для селфи, дизайн как смесь iPhone и Galaxy - хорошее соотношение цена/качество и телефон, который приятен во всех смыслах. Будущий хит?

Никаких нареканий на качество связи нет, стабильная работа в сетях как в Москве, так и в мире. Виброзвонок по силе средний, не очень заметный в карманах. Динамик не дотягивает по громкости до Galaxy S6, но звонки пропустить сложно.

Cheese! Lenovo's Vibe S1 phone's twin front cameras double down on selfies

 

BERLIN -- For most smartphone makers, an 8-megapixel front-facing camera is something to crow about. With its new Vibe S1, Lenovo tops itself by adding a second, 2-megapixel front-facing camera that's meant to add more depth and dimension to...

Lenovo starts selling the Vibe S1 globally in November, though it won't arrive everywhere, like North America. While cost will vary among currencies and countries, look for it to come in at about $300, which converts to roughly £200 and AU$430.

Lenovo Vibe S1 Review

 

Lenovo introduced Vibe S1 , its first selfie-focused smartphone with dual front-facing cameras at the IFA back in September. It was launched in India exclusively on Amazon.in last month for Rs. 15999. Even though the main highlight of the smartphone is...

Good display; Great Ergonomics and Design; Good front camera; 32GB of internal storage with expansion slot

Average battery life; Slippery back; Hybrid dual SIM might not be useful for everyone

Overall, the Lenovo Vibe S1 is a decent smartphone for the price of Rs. 15,999. It has a good display, brilliant design, solid build quality and a good enough front-facing camera, but it disappoints when it comes to battery life. Slippery back can be...
