Camera-centric Lenovo Vibe Shot available via Amazon (sans US LTE)
Released last month in China, the Lenovo Vibe Shot can now also be purchased in the US, where Amazon lets customers order the handset for as low as $380 (unlocked).

Before advising you to consider buying the Vibe Shot, we have to mention that the model sold via Amazon is not made for the US, so it doesn't support American LTE bands. However, it will work on the 3G networks of AT&T and T-Mobile.

Made out of premium materials (metal and tempered glass), the Lenovo Vibe Shot is a camera-centric smartphone that runs Android Lollipop (customized by Lenovo). Its rear camera is a 16 MP one with tri-color LED flash, OIS and a Smart / Pro switch that enables or disables manual controls, while its front-facing shooter is an 8 MP one.

Measuring 142 x 70 x 7.3 mm, the Vibe Shot sports a 5-inch display with 1080 x 1920 pixels, further featuring an octa-core Snapdragon 615 processor, 3 GB of RAM, 32 GB of expandable storage space, and a 2900 mAh battery.

You can take a closer look at the new Lenovo smartphone in our Vibe Shot hands-on.

Lenovo phones are a joke, especially their childish looking UI.

Why sell it America if it doesn't have 4G? I don't get it.

They should improve their software and especially their UI its fugly keep the UI customization to as minimum as possible and move towards stockish UI learn something from motorola, I think they have great potential especially in third world countries.!!

It is a great camera phone with decent specs. The only thing I don't like is the UI. Seriously, it looks way too ugly.

Nubia Z9 mini packs similar hardware at a much lower price.
