In terms of specifications, the Lenovo Vibe B does not justify the asking price as it carries a 4.5-inch FWGA display with a resolution of 480 x 854 pixels. At the heart of the phone is a MediaTek MTK6735m SoC, which is a 64-bit quad-core chip with all the cores clocked at 1GHz. The phone is armed with 1GB of RAM and to handle the graphics, Lenovo has gone with a Mali T720 MP1 GPU.

Storage wise, the phone comes with onboard storage of 8GB and comes with support for storage expansion up to 32GB via a microSD card slot. The Lenovo Vibe B packs a 5MP rear camera with LED flash and a 2MP front-facing camera to capture selfies and video calls.

Laden with Android 6.0 Marshmallow, the Lenovo Vibe B is armed with a small 2000mAh battery. Lenovo claims that the battery will deliver 11.3 hours of talk time and up to 175 hours of standby time on a 3G network. The Vibe B comes with a slew of connectivity options such as 4G LTE, Dual SIM, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and a micro USB port. Currently, there’s no info whether the phone has VoLTE support or not.

Interestingly, the global product page of Lenovo Vibe B has gone live, but there’s no information on the Lenovo India’s official site about the phone, as of now. Having said that, the phone packs entry-level specifications, and they don’t justify the asking price of Rs. 5,799.

can anyone provide review/ experience of using REDMI 3S (2GB+16GB variant only) ? is it working flawlessly ? i mean day to day performance while using 2-3 apps along with whatsapp? any other issues.. like any microphone issues during calls or video recording? please let me know. I am going to buy it from Amazon. or you have any other recommendation. Camera is not a major concern (as no one will provide a great camera at just rs.7000) main is battery life & no or minimum lagging UI.

Go for it in 7000Rs there no other phone in a market which perform better Redmi 3s. Battery life last more than full working day in heavy use(4G Data) & in normal use u can get upto 2 days. U not able to find lag in normal usage like chatting and Internet surfing. Its best phone under 7000Rs
