Hi, just like Bob below, I too waited for a Vibe Shot for a long time. But now, I have finally given up and bought an Asus Zenfone 2 (in India) with 2.3GHz and 4GB RAM.
For those who are thinking about how Zenfone may be better than Vibe Shot, may I explain some features of Zenfone I have experienced so far...
The phone is not much of a looker, but it feels great to hold in the hand because of its curved rear. Not too large or too wide, just right.
On the same day, I downloaded and updated the phone's firmware from Asus's support website (yes, Asus has excellent support). And now the phone behaves even better.
The camera shutter can be configured to fire in 3 ways - (1) by pressing the volume-up button, (2) by touching anywhere on the screen, (3) by touching the camera button on the screen. Even when phone is locked, you can start the camera by double-clicking the volume-up button.
That means Zenfone 2 also has a dedicated camera shoot button which can fire even from locked screen. This takes some advantage away from Lenovo Vibe Shot, which already has lower RAM and less powerful processor and higher price compared to Asus Zenfone 2.
In Zenfone camera, there are excellent manual controls like Exposure, ISO, AutoFocus settings, and it comes with Dual-tone flash.
After applying latest firmware, the Zenfone 2 does not heat up too much, but battery drain is an issue. Maybe 5.1 lollipop update will fix that.
Even on that count, Asus's support and regular updates are much superior than Lenovo's lack of updates on its phones.
- happy Zenfone 2 user.
