Battery Specifications

Personally I would have preferred if the battery capacity was a bit higher but that is not a big deal since it will last you the whole day on a full charge.

However, the battery is not removable which is a minus for the Lenovo Vibe Shot.


When it comes to the camera, the phone does not disappoint. It has a 16 megapixel primary camera and 8 megapixel secondary camera.

The presence of a dual tone flash ensures that the photos you take are clear and sharp

The phone also supports up to 256 GB expandable memory. This is a plus since you can buy a memory card to expand your storage if you ever run out of precious phone memory.

When it comes to the screen, it is protected using corning gorilla glass 3 which will ensure that your phone screen is protected against minor falls.

You won’t worry about the phone for example falling from the bed or couch.

In my own personal opinion, a 5-inch phone is usually perfect since you won’t have any problems carrying it around when compare to a 5.5 inch one.
