Headed over to Pullman Kuala Lumpur Bangsar on 18 August 2015 for the launch of Lenovo’s latest smartphone – the Lenovo VIBE Shot. This smartphone that promises the best of both worlds. In today’s world where a lot of people like to snap photos with their smartphone, the challenge has always been how to fit a good camera into something so small and thin as a smartphone. Well Lenovo has solved that problem with the Vibe Shot which has a 16MP main camera and 5.0” Full HD screen all in one premium smartphone.

With me that morning was my social media influencer Leng Sean (yes she is Leng Yein’s sister) who was nice enough to help model the camera for me as well.

I can see why she's so popular as she's really good at what she does!

The VIBE Shot features a dedicated shutter button just like conventional cameras. It can be used to instantly activate the camera function without you having to activate the camera app first which its on-board infrared auto-focusing (AF)  system is twice as fast as a conventional autofocus*. This phone breaks new ground by having a tri-color LED flash which gives more realistic skin tones – a world’s first for smartphones.

The 16:9 back illuminated or backside illumination (BSI) sensor provides superior low-light performance and clarity for shooting in dark settings, and there’s also optical image stabilization (OIS) tech to reduce blurring – something which is very useful if you have shaky hands.

There’s also a dedicated switch were you can easily toggle between the camera’s Auto and Pro modes. The Auto Mode helps amateur photographers with the Smart Composition function, incorporating automatic scene detection and an onscreen “point & shoot” guidance essentially guiding you where to place your subject. Especially good for those who don’t know the rule of thirds.

The Pro mode gives you manual controls such as aperture, shutter speed and ISO settings, something which advanced and professional photographer are sure to appreciate. For those of you who love taking selfies, there’s the panoramic selfie feature that lets you take three selfies and turn them into one that includes more people.

The VIBE Shot has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor on top of an octa-core chip which is engineered for multitasking while remaining extremely power efficient at the same time. Lenovo is also pretty generous with RAM and storage for this phone, putting in 3GB of RAM, and 32GB of on-board storage, expandable up to 128GB through a microSD card slot. The phone is also 4G / LTE capable.

Besides picture perfect images, the VIBE Shot is one stylish phone as it is built using premium materials including a full aluminum outer frame, plus front and back Corning Gorilla glass. The VIBE Shot is only 7.6mm thick, making it one of the thinnest smartphones in the market.

“The VIBE Shot is a stylish yet powerful smartphone that is perfect for people who want both a phone and a camera. This latest product underlines our sustained commitment and effort to innovation, by giving people what they need, in a compelling design,” said Foo Mun Yee, Country Lead, Lenovo Smartphone, Malaysia.
