Lenovo Vibe X2 is a fascinating Android phone released back in the year 2014, with a Octa-Core CPU (actually, it has a Quad-Core at 2 GHz and an additional Quad-Core clocking at 1.7 GHz), a big 5-inches touch-screen, and two cameras, a 13 mega-pixels back facing camera and a 5 MP front side camera. Let's take a closer view of what this device has to offer.

The Lenovo Vibe X2 is powered by a MediaTek MT6595M chip, including a great performance Octa-Core processor (as a matter of fact they are really a Quad-Core clocking at 2 gigahertz and an extra Quad-Core speeding at 1700 MHz) with a large 2 GB RAM. A great point of this cellphone is its inmense 32 GB internal memory and while it doesn't count with an SD memory card expansion slot, it is still enough to install tons of apps, games, songs, photos and videos without worrying about how much storage capacity is left.

Lenovo made a very good optimization job making this cellphone weight just 4.23 oz. Lenovo made the Lenovo Vibe X2 in a wide range of color variations: gray, red, white and gold. This phone is just 0.29" thick, taking it to the thinnest phone's category. Even though the Lenovo Vibe X2 is only 5.52 inches long, it still manages to contain a 5 inches display.

This device includes an amazing 5" screen with a 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) resolution, which makes everything look vivid and colorful. Its screen uses IPS LCD capacitive technology, and can detect multi touch gestures.

This phone features two cameras, a 13 MP back facing camera and a 5 MP front-facing camera. In addition, the camera has a few nice characteristics: flash, face detection shooting, auto-focus, smile detection shooting and geo tagging.

The Lenovo Vibe X2 uses a 2300 mAh long lasting Li-Polymer non-replaceable battery that can keep this cellphone running for several hours, although you may need to charge it after some heavy use. This cellphone has an estimated 22 hours talk time and a 408 hours stand by time according to Lenovo. An issue to evaluate is that this phone's battery is non-replaceable so you won't be able to replace it when it starts to lose capacity, whereas with this big battery you will probably discard this cellphone before that becomes an issue.

This phone has WiFi connectivity (which can be shared with other devices around, as a mobile hotspot), LTE 4G high performance connectivity or 3G fast internet connection, over HSPA, HSUPA and EDGE technologies. This device uses a Micro SIM card for GSM carriers.

This device also includes many interesting features like Bluetooth, FM Radio, GPS Localization and NFC (Near Field Communication), and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer and Compass.

Lenovo is selling the Lenovo Vibe X2 for only $ 165, which is a great offer comparing with other similar phones. If you need a work cellphone, are looking for a gamer device or need a cellphone to mostly use social networks and internet browsing, you will probably be very pleased with it.
