Lenovo gets creative to show us how thin and light its Vibe X smartphone is

Lenovo launched its Vibe X Android handset in late 2013 and, at the moment, this is the company’s thinnest high-end smartphone. It measures 144 x 74 x 6.9 mm, and it’s also very light, weighing only 121 grams.

Lenovo recently got creative to illustrate just how thin and light the Vibe X is. The company tweeted an image showing multiple Vibe X handsets that were placed as to form a pyramid of cards. Of course, the cards here are smartphones. The image appears to be just a render, though. It would be interesting to see Lenovo do this with real handsets.

The Vibe X isn’t available all over the world, but it can be purchased in markets like China, India and Russia, for around $420. It runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, featuring a 5-inch Full HD (1080 x 1920) display, a 1.5GHz quad-core MediaTek MT6589T processor, 13MP rear camera, 5MP front-facing camera, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal memory, and a 2,000 mAh battery.

Now, with Lenovo acquiring Motorola’s mobile business, we should see the Chinese company getting more active in the smartphone market. And, as long as we are treated with attractive handsets like the Vibe X, that should be a good thing.

The problem is, the memory is not expandable. Being a 1080p screen, a small amount of 1080p videos will fill up quite easily.

what? no - I have a nexus 5 with a 1080p screen (HD) - and I use some cloud storage - not having a micro SD card is not the end of the world - you could always backup your phone on a SEAGATE external drive, too....

I think your proper response should have been, "what the hell do you need 12 GB of 1080p video on your phone for?" then the obvious follow up of "I guess this phone isn't for you...."

"not having a micro SD card is not the end of the world" yeah i agree with that but Will make your life much easier and cheaper than cloud or external storage. Because one of the most important functions of a smartphone is making our lives so much easier.

And, most importantly, it's practically free for the manufacturer to put a MicroSD card slot on their gadgets, but they wanna shove their cloud service down your throat, it's easier to monitor you that way, you know.

External storage? Looses the whole meaning of mobile.. Cloud storage?? The amount of strain on your data and the amount of shuffling needed.. But then again 16 gigs may suite some, but the manufacturers are restricting the success of their, possibly good, products these days.

Lg G2 comes to mind. I would have bought ir but for the lack of expandable memory. It is easy for manufacturers to include it in their phones so I will not be making excuses for them and telling people to use the cloud. Why do people think Samsung is doing well?

While I agree with most of what you said.. I believe SS is successful for so many reasons and the sd thing is a very small part of that. If they add a health dose of internal memory I don't care about expandable memory. I use my sd on my 1520 because it has only 16 gig but never used it on my note 3

Their 4G coverage says no. ;) I'm not here to bash on T-mobile. I love my service with T-mobile (and it costs me so little pe month). However, with an SD card, you can get up to 64gb (or is it 128gb nowadays?) and all those data will be with you 24/24. Cloud storage, however, cannot be accessed all the time. :)

Lenovo computers are amazing but not very attractive. Seems to be the same for their phones.

So thin & a pathetic battery, I hope they dont do this to Motorola, bigger battery is ALWAYS BETTER.

13. papss unregistered

I completely agree here. I've come to realize that a strong battery is vital for my needs.

The Oppo R819 is 10 grams lighter, only a little bit thicker, and supposedly has excellent battery life.
