The Lenovo Vibe S1 Lite is the young brother of the Lenovo S1. It was released in 2016, May and it ships with android Lollipop version 5.1.
I would consider it a midrange phone, though somehow, it has the price of a low end phone in Kenya.
The specifications are a notch lower than Lenovo Vibe S1. We look at some of the phones pros and cons.
Lenovo is really doing a great job when it comes to their screen quality. The Lenovo Vibe S1 lite is such a phone. the screen quality is really something you can show off to people. In this day and age, you should not have a grainy phone display.
I’ve seen this on many people’s phones. It’s like they don’t care about the quality of the screen at all. This phone has a resolution of 1080 by 1920 pixels and that really does the job.
Price in Kenya: Kshs. 15,000.
Currently, a 2GB phone ram is the recommended size. You should not buy a phone which is less than that.
While it would have been perfect if the phone had more ram, the available one is just enough for normal use and some hardcore gaming.
The camera department is up to standard and over. The 13 MP camera will perform perfectly if you are into taking photographs.
The standard right now for the front camera is 5 megapixels and the Lenovo Vibe S1 Lite has surpassed that. It comes with 8 MP forward facing camera.
The biggest disadvantage with this phone is the battery size. The capacity of 2700mAh will just let you go through the day without charging.
However, if you are a heavy phone user, you should expect the phone to under perform when it comes to the battery sector.
The phone is relatively new having been released in May 2016. So expect average to good performance of this device.
Lenovo vibe s1 lite also comes with 4G so expect fast internet speeds using Safaricom internet provider.
