Been using the phone for 3 years now. Solid with no major issues.
The hardware has stayed solid and I've noticed no lags/freezes whatsoever, even with intense use.
However, the battery has really started to grate on me the past few months and it's time for me to upgrade. But, everything else on the phone is pretty rad for its price point. Looks ahead of its time and solid hardware. Camera is pretty decent too. One of the best phones I've ever used. Pity about the battery as I could've gone on with it if not for its poor battery capacity.
I wouldn't recommend this phone.
I bought this phone about 2 years ago. I was informed about its battery issue, I knew that its battery starts to drain after a while, but I was okay with it. But see what happened.
After 1.5 years charging scheme decayed. I gave my phone to service, they fixed it. After 2 months of it, it happened again. So I had to give it to service again, because I didn't have money for a new phone.(And battery issues hadn't started yet.) 2 weeks after it phone didn't start to drain the battery, it started to KILL the battery. So I gave it to service to change it. And they did. After 3 days taking back the the phone, guess what happened? ITS CHARGING SCHEME DECAYED AGAIN. So, after spending half of the price for fixing this phone, I am not going to give any money for it again/
Only things are good about this phone:
Has a good sound hardware
Look is very good indeed
Also, camera of it also unuseful too.
Using last 2 years and 6 months., only problem i found lack of battery capacity..
Using it for almost 3 years now, only battery and bluetooth issues.

Dear readers, I bought this phone couple of months ago, when I update it with Marshmallow every function is in operation except its camera which is not working and massage shows that "camera is not responding and try again"! even WhatsApp and apps came is working properly, Please help me to resolve the issue.
This device is good one, no doubt every device has good and bad advantages despite all these things Lenovo Vibe S1 is a good phone. Recently, I have bought it in Rs.16,000/- new with Lenovo official warranty, my experiencing is not bad actually my mrs. is using it.
Good selfi cameras but there's no selfie flash though, selfies aside, the Lenovo Vibe S1 is actually a fairly attractive phone with an aluminum frame (and a very glossy plastic back). It has a reasonably-sized 5" 1080p screen and is powered by an octa-core processor inside a MediaTek chipset with 3GB of RAM and 32 GB its internal memory with dedicated card slot on which you can directly download apps and games etc.
Back camera is average good in light, overall not bad. Battery is 2420mAh Li-Po not very good but not very bad.
I upgrade it with Marshmallow graphics have been changed other things remained unchanged.
larisa, 05 Mar 2018very bad batery ! alwais shuting down when is coldYou are looking soo nice
Has a very loud speaker, clear sound and very good visual quality. The camera are doing great in term of front and rear camera. Other than that none.
Super hot when comes to gaming, like hell hot. Gaming like over 3 minutes, then you can cook a goddamn omelette over your phone screen. The phone battery also a nightmare, like 100, you lock your phone, 10 minutes later, you notice your battery power are at 91. The fk is thay lenovo. Whoever told you this phone is good fo gaming, it is the most liar thing you heard jn your life, utter garbage money desperate kind of product. I am so regret buying this phone, and if i had the chance, i will swap this phone right away without second thinking.
I've got this phone since march 2016. I am really happy with it. Battery life - still 1 day, with constantly turned on wifi or 4g. Camera is perfect on daytime, cons- bad pictures when light is bad. Free ram memory about 1.5gb, most upgrades really upgrade phone performance. I am still on android 5.0, fully ipgarded, next upgrade is up to marshmellow (i am not sure if i want to upgrade - can you give some feedback). Thete is a ptoblem with the flashligt. Sometimes when i answer a call the flashlight turns on, dont know why. Fast and easy to use. At overall i am really satisfied. I didnt expect after 1.5 year to work still so good.
