Even though flagship smartphones are the ones that receive the most attention, there are a lot of very capable and tempting mid-rangers out there that hold a whole bunch of features which might seem tempting for most of you, especially due to the price that is asked for them. The Lenovo Vibe X2 is one of these fellows, coming with an impressive set of skills for an affordable price and also boosting a refreshing design which will certainly turn a few heads. Some of its main offerings are a 5 inches display, an octa-core processor, 2 GB of RAM, a 13 MP camera and more. Feeling interested? Well, keep on reading and find out more about it.

In its retail box, the Lenovo Vibe X2 holds a microUSB cable, a charger head, a pair of headphones, a back cover, a screen protector and a little tool for ejecting the SIM card. Quite rich, I might say.

When it comes to appearance, the Lenovo Vibe X2 stands at 140.2 x 68.6 x 7.3 mm and has a weight of 120 grams, being slim and quite light for a phone that holds a 5 inches screen. This is due to its magnesium unibody, which is not only light, but also seems to be very durable and reliable too. The phone’s design is candy for the eyes, as it consists in 4 differently colored layers that blend in with each other and add a joyful accent to the overall appearance, which reminds me of a cake. Yeap, the phone definitely looks yummy.

The Lenovo Vibe X2 has a 5 inches IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen that offers a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, a pixel density of 441 ppi and is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3. As you probably expect it, the image quality is very good, with pleasing colors, good contrast and wide viewing angles. The sunlight legibility is also okay, you won’t be having problems when using the phone under direct sunlight.

On the inside, the Lenovo X2 Vibe holds support for Android 4.4.2 KitKat and it’s unknown when it will receive an update to Lollipop. Anyways, the interface looks nice as it is and holds a lot of useful customizations by Lenovo through their Vibe 2.0 UI. If you’re familiar with Android, you’ll feel right at home when “playing” with this fella over here, as the interface is friendly and intuitive and hasn’t suffered any major changes. The Google services and apps are on board, of course, so you won’t be missing any of them. Let’s find out what’s under “the hood” when it comes to hardware.
The Lenovo Vibe X2 is powered by a MediaTek MT6595 chipset, holding a “pair” of a quad-core 2.0 GHz Cortex-A17 and a quad-core 1.7 GHz Cortex-A7 CPUs, PowerVR G600 GPU, 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage, which cannot be expanded with a microSD card. The handset is a great performer and won’t be bugging you with any issues like lagging or freezing. Those are out of the question.

In its connectivity backpack, the Lenovo Vibe X2 holds support for quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE, penta-band 3G, LTE Cat 4, dual-band WI-Fi a/b/g/n/ac with DLNA and Hotspot, Bluetooth 4.0 with LE, EDR and A2DP, microUSB 2.0

For snapping photos, the Lenovo Vibe X2 holds on board a 13 megapixels camera with autofocus which takes stills with a maximum resolution of 4160 x 3120 pixels and is assisted by a LED flash in low light conditions. The camera application is rich in options and settings and allows you to change the resolution, ISO, white balance, effects and more. The pictures taken show some pretty colors, a plenty amount of resolved detail and good contrast.
The camera also produces some very decent 1080p videos @30 fps. A front-facing 5 MP camera is also here for making video calls.

The Lenovo Vibe X2 comes with the Google Chrome browser and will offer a great user experience when you’re surfing the web. Also on board are a GPS receiver with A-GPS and GLONASS, Google Maps and Navigation for finding your way around unknown places, a File manager for offering you access to the memory, Google Now is also here for offering you a personal assistant that provides you with relevant information, answers questions and more.

The Lenovo Vibe X2 has a 2,300 mAh battery inside and will stay “alive” for one day under an intense usage or two if you use it moderately.
