In the specs its mentioned tht FM Radio is thr. Most of the reviewers say so.. Just now my vibe x3 is delivered and to my shock i found tht it doesnt have FM radio..so much of misleading facts by so called reviewers.. FM ws one the reasons I bought this phone otherwise would have gone with moto x play.. feeling pissed off...
Does any one know how to root this phone and unlock bootloader ?

After Marshmallow update card reader not supported Otg otg feature not work many time app lock not proper work mobile high uses ram big app downloading problem
I feel very bad now. I'm very crazy about this phone. I have been using this phone only 2days and After I updated the system updates, My phone back touch space is not working properly sometimes and hangedup. I have restarted and still its very slow and its not working. So i'm going for replacement. Is anyone facing the same issue.
Updated Lenovo VIBE X3 to Android 6.0.1 facing many issues.
1. Camera lag when viewing any clicked picture.
2. battery drain fast.
3. Speaker loudness reduced.
4. Camera quality is not good need to improve it in next update.
5. UI lags sometimes when using phone after a long standby.
6. Brightness is reduced, screen is not that bright as it was in Lollipop(Android 5.0).
7. Wi-Fi issues, sometimes unable to get speed from Wi-Fi.
Found some fixes too.
Those who have problems with camera they can install Google camera for there device and use Google photos as there default Gallery app.
Google camera take a way better picture than SnapIt(Lenovo's default camera app).
I have currently installed Cyanogen camera(modded) and Google camera in my device
Cyanogen camera hels me to take 50MP pictures because of which the qualtiy and sharpness comes good in pictures.
AnonD-557854, 08 Jul 2016Want to know how is the touch response on this phone and is it worth buying after the update. ... moreVibe X3 is a good phone, but I personally cannot give you the guarantee how will it behave after Lenorola android upgrades. Frankly for the past months I am sick with this phone, with each update solving some bugs and bringing a dozen other. I also use smartphones from another brand named Vivo like their X5Max and V3Max. Vivo do not do any android version upgrades, but atleast their phones are rock solid both from the hardware side as well as software. Vivo software updates does not bring any bugs atleast. As such my daily driver is a Vivo X5Max.
I also had a few old Motorola devices like 1st Gen Moto G which were stellar devices for its price with zero android update bugs.
Want to know how is the touch response on this phone and is it worth buying after the update. Please help and suggest me. Need a new phone urgently
Naga, 07 Jul 2016Updated marshmallow. Following are the observations.
1. Phone is butter smooth in operation... moreVery well said. For the past six months Vibe X3 have become an example of how to destroy an excellent phone with pathetic quality controlled android software upgrades. A big thumbs down to Lenorola (Lenovo + Motorola) for this pathetic service.
I will now upgrade to marshmallow as it seems much stable than Lollipop for now.
Hey, i want to know, if i dont update to marshmallow(as i dont like it because of many bugs) and wait for newer update, then i have to update for mashmallow first or the new update is install instead of marshmallow.
May I Know How much was the update size, i Bought the mobile today and i have got a 51 mb update process pending ,by seeing all your comments i did'nt update it ,pls give me suggestion whether to update or not???
Anonymous, 06 Jul 2016What is this symbol N)) beside batteryThat's NFC Dude ,When U Don't Know About it Why did U buy This Phone LOL!!!!
One more observation
Default camera app is laggy. After taking a snap in case we try to see the photo taken in the camera app itself, then camera app. is getting hung. Installed camera mx and checked.opening gallery through camera mx does not have any problem.Please fix this bug asap lenovo.
Is lenovo vibe x3 good?
Am confused as I read too many comment saying it turned off on it own etc etc
I want to buy a phone under 20k
& very confused
Lenovo guys please respond to our queries after the update the phone quality degraded....pls fix this update ASAP
Updated marshmallow. Following are the observations.
1. Phone is butter smooth in operation.
2.Ram management does not seem to be great. Only 1.3 GB is available on first boot. On use of a number of apps reduces to 500 MB or less. However, importantly despite of lesser ram none of the applications lag or hang.
3. Heating is reduced. Temperature does not go beyond 36 degrees even on continuos heavy usage. Used to go beyond 40 in lollipop.
3.upto 5 fingerprint can be set up and fingerprint can be set up as app lock. However after phone is in idle condition for long does not unlock with fingerprint and sometimes asks for pattern as additional security.But this happens only sometimes.
4. Sound on speaker is reduced. Volume level needs to be raised to full unlike in lollipop. Not as loud as earlier in lollipop. Hope update improves the same. Not a major con for me as I use headphones more than speaker. Not too bad though.
4. Sound quality on headphones seems to be the same but loudness is reduced.
5.All apps after installation ask for permissions when used for first time. If any permission is not granted apps crash or do not open. Even contact manager didn't work when few permissions were denied.
6. Charging time is the same for battery. Battery back up seems to be same as in lollipop for me.
7.Reset after installation of marshmallow is better to be done for best performance
I did a factory reset before and after installation of marshmallow.
My recommendation is to go for the update if your priority is performance. Performance of phone has definitely improved and is extremely smooth after update , except for audio which may be set right in future updates.
If audio on speaker is your main priority you may wait for sometime.
Thanks to lenovo for providing marshmallow, but release an update soon to set audio quality back to top notch as it was in lollipop.
