I’ve been using the Lenovo Vibe Shot (read more about the launch here – https://timchew.net/2015/09/01/lenovo-vibe-shot-launched-in-malaysia/) for more than a month now and on some occasions even left my camera at home and used Lenovo’s new 16MP camera smartphone instead.

After seeing what National Geographer Young Explorer Hannah Reyes (read more about the dinner with Hannah here – http://timchew.net/2015/10/07/lenovo-vibe-shot-dinner-with-hannah-reyes-national-geographic-young-explorer/) managed to shoot with the smartphone, I decided to see what I could do with it. Now do bear in mind that I’ve no formal photography training whatsoever therefore I’m pretty much like any normal smartphone user out there.

The photos below were shot in “Pro Mode” and have not been edited in any way however they have been resized to save space.

If you follow my site regularly, you’d know that I do attend food reviews regularly. I decided to leave my camera at home and only brought the Lenovo Vibe Shot for the All Kansai Fair review at Sasagawa Japanese Restaurant at Sheraton Imperial Kuala Lumpur.

Next up was the Marini’s on 57 3rd Anniversary Party.

Unfortunately there was a bad haze that evening and all we could see out of the windows was this very gloomy view

So what do you think? Of course not up to the level of Hannah Reyes but then again she’s a professional photographer.

Gaming is silky smooth and I experienced no lag whatsoever even when playing games with high-graphics and frame rate such as World of Tanks, which looks great on the HD screen. This is also complemented by the Dolby Atmos sound although to fully appreciate it you need to plus in a pair of good headphones.

 

The Lenovo Vibe Shot has a recommended retail price of RM1,399.00 and is currently available in stores.
