Lenovo Vibe X2 Pro vs Samsung Galaxy S5 vs HTC One (M8): specs comparison

Lenovo Vibe X2 Pro
Lenovo's at it again! We've certainly associated this potent China-based giant with not one or two smartphones throughout 2014, and from the look of it 2015 will be no different. Lenovo kicks off the year with two new handset offerings at CES 2015, one of which is called the Lenovo Vibe X2 Pro, a beefed-up variation of the world's first "layered smartphone", the Vibe X2.

As such, the Vibe X2 Pro also employs this interesting design in its exterior, which is one of the bigger highlights of the device.

Apart from being a tad different from its rivals in terms of looks, Lenovo's new handset is not exactly made of flagship material. Don't get us wrong, the Vibe X2 Pro is well-endowed under the hood, but it can't compete with the top-tier players. Its 64-bit Snapdragon 615 packs eight cores, some 2 gigabytes of RAM, a 5.3-inch 1080p display, a 13MP snapper, two nano-SIM slots, and a 2,410mAh battery. The price that Lenovo put on the smartphone is $499, but sadly, you won't be able to get it in the US.

However, let's check out how it fares against some of the usual suspects on the smartphone stage in a specs sheet battle.
