Hey guys, Have a Nexus 5 from the past 1 yr. But now totally bored with the basic features and battery Issues. Planning to buy a new phone, either Lenovo Vibe x2 or Honor 6.
I would request the users of Both these phones to enlighten me with actual facts about the phones so that i can make the right purchase. As i dont want to spend a lot and neither do i want to waste what ever i spend. I am not a gamer, but just want a good phone when it comes to build, Looks, Battery, Camera and a good UI.
KS, 25 Nov 2014I'm in Indiaok .. waiting for original set from lenovo malaysia ... not really keen on AP set ... although already available in malaysia ..
khaz07, 26 Nov 2014ok.but what about camera quality. has it improved?? or any other improvements?Camera is defintaly better. Only tried indoors will try outdoor later.
Also testing the battery standby. I got a bit more battery life today but battery normally stabilizes in 3-4 cycles.
Why is this phone going to vibration mode automatically. Anyone facing the same issue?? My two week experience with the phone is not upto the mark
rocco, 23 Nov 2014worst phone ever saw...worst battery backup.....worst phone ever sawI agree with you bro, i regret to have this phone after spending a fair amount.
I have had a very bad experience with the Lenovo Vibe X2.
I purchased it one week ago, after using for 2-3 days, it suddenly started getting heated and then it went off. after charging i came to know that display went off.This was horrible experience when you buy a phone after reviewing few good things.I though of publishing this review just coz that next time onwards atleast others who want to buy this phone must have a general idea about this problem.
khaz07, 25 Nov 2014please check of a firmware update. its out i guess. after installing check for the improvement... moreOne BIG change i see after the S121 update.
Now i can choose which SIM should have 4G network. earlier it was only showing SIM 1 for 4G/3G/2G. Now I am able to select if i want SIM2 to be primary for 4G.
This is good for me as my Airtel SIM was a Nano SIM. Now I can use 4G on it. High speed internet... here I come
very Good phone.
Used 2 weeks. No problem
Only issue with camera, not that great to take group photo etc.
If you take smaller distance pics it will be very good.
Camera has lot modes features etc.
Also has HD mode.
After firmware upgrade now its better.( for me cam is not of that important)
Other features are excellent. very good graphical interface many theme etc
Performance is also good. Can open multiple application without any prob
battery is also fine(although technically less). there is power saving mode to save battery. lot of feature to save battery
very less weight, nice design
very good phone for professionals
I recommend it
RNA, 24 Nov 2014Yes same here.. using from 2 week.. no issue at all.please check of a firmware update. its out i guess. after installing check for the improvements and what changes you noticed.
sonukumar12345, 20 Nov 2014Can anybody tell me both sim are 4g or only sim1..One sim is 4G.Other is 2G
Got a firmware upgrade of about 100mb today... Anyone know what it does?
the camera performance seems improved a lot
I got this mobile 4 days ago. this phone performs good. but the UI sucks. I installed Nova launcher.
The first piece which I received had a network problem. So flipkart gave me replacement. It looks like there is piece to piece variations.
The previous showed benchmark of 49000. whereas the replacement piece is not shooting above 44000.
the phone is very light.
Network(below average): network is not all that good. it’s much lesser than my any other old phone I used.
Wifi(excellent): wifi is amazingly good. it covers long range than usual phones.
battery: battery is a big pain.it lasts for 15 hrs. on average. keep in mind the battery life is number of recharge cycles. so let’s say for example this battery has life of 365 charges. Then the battery will last only half a year. Whereas if the battery lasted for 2 days the same battery life would serve you for 2 years. More over its not replaceable.
Camera(fair): The camera is ok. The problem is with the software used to shoot. It focuses one time and later just shoots. Human hands cannot be stable so we need a software that adjust focus when it receives command to shoot. I tried open camera software it works well.
UI(ok kinda): I personally hate the UI. So I used Nova launcher.
Audio quality(too bad): external speakers are ok and serve the purpose. Headphone audio is really bad. getting a new better quality headphones helps to some extent. I would recommend you to go for Bluetooth headphones of good quality.
Heating(fair): this phone does heat. But not too much.
Weight(good job): yes the phone is very light.
Last word: wondering what’s good with this phone apart from processor performance.
