Lenovo S960 Vibe X lands, priced at Php19,999

Without much fanfare, Lenovo Philippines quietly launched their latest quad-core smartphone – Lenovo Vibe X S960 which the company showcased in their official Facebook page.

On paper, the S960 is flagship material, sporting a 5-inch, 1080p IPS display panel coated with Gorilla Glass. Its internals are pretty respectable as well, composing of a quad-core processor with 2GB of RAM and 16GB worth of default storage; all housed inside wafer-thin 6.9mm body.

Lenovo Vibe X S960 specs:
5-inch FHD IPS display, 1920×1080 @441ppi
Gorilla Glass 3
1.5GHz MTK6589T quad-core processor
16GB internal memory
13MP camera w/LED flash
1080p video recording @30fps
5MP front-facing camera
WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
Bluetooth 4.0 with A2Dp support
USB OTG support
Single SIM (Micro)
Android 4.2 Jellybean
2,000mAh battery

The only thing that’s a bit undermining though is the lack of slot for a Micro-SD and that it only runs on a rather weak 2000mAh battery. Other than that, the new Lenovo Vibe X S960 is viable option for those in the market for 5-inch 1080p handset under 20K.

      Gago, nag iincite ka lang ng gulo. tanong mo yan sa product forums ng apple.

    • jake says:

      May point!!!

    • roy says:

      dahil pag ios, tanggap na ng mga tao na hindi supported ang sd slot so kahit mag reklamo ka ay balewala. at cnu may sabing walang nagrereklamo na walang sd slot ang ios? marami din po :)
      hindi kagaya ng android, alam mo na maraming android na supported ang sd slot, kaya magtataka ka at malulungkot pag ang gusto mong android device ay walang sd slot :)

    • wew says:

      marami ring nadidisappoint kasi walang sd slot para sa iphones…pero ibang kaso naman to sa mundo kasi ng android maraming phones ang may sd slot kaya pag ang isang phone eh wala talagang dealbreaker un,ung sa isa nga meron tas ung isa wala? sa iphone magreklamo ka man o hinde walang magagawa kasi nagiisa lng naman tong phone na to na iOS. tska di rin ganun kadami ang may reactions dahil nga na sd slotless ang iphone dahil marami sa nabili nito eh ang dahilan ay dahil “APPLE” ito.

      sa mundo kasi ng android maraming phones ang may sd slot,kahit ung mga katapat nitong lenovo na to eh may sd slot,kaya pag nalaman na wala tong sd slot eh talagang maraming madidisappoint at magreklamo…sa iphone naman eh ibang kaso un kase nagiisa lng silang nakaiOS, kumbaga eh “take it or leave it” tska karamihan naman ng bumibili ng iphone eh dahil sa “APPLE” ito.

  3. Phillip says:

    Great specs, the only downer is the battery.

  4. zxc says:

    Well, you’re already spending 20k so why not just add a bit more (~7k-ish) and get a G2. Imo, the price is not justifiable.

  5. nim says:

    1.5GHz MTK6589T – 20K? *FACEPALM*

    • diorarat says:

      Hindi ako masyado familiar mediatek. A7 quad core or A15 quad core? Pag A7 lang lugi sa 20k as sabi ni nim.

  6. allen83 says:

    Tama si nim quad core mediatek is just slightly better lang ng dual core ng qualcomm s4 chip

  7. wew says:

    mediatek amf

  8. someone says:

    Pag bumili ka ng iphone may option ka kung ano size ng internal memory. 16/32/64GB.

    Simula noon, wala naman talagang external sd card na option. Tanggap na yan ng karamihan.

    Sa mga Android based smartphones kasi, yung iba meron, yung iba wala. So ang tendency ng tao ay hanapin yung “missing” feature.

  9. EarlZ says:

    Lol, 20k? The Lg G2 is waaaaay better than this even if it costs 7k more

  10. Krae says:

    Too expensive for non lte, nfc and low battery life. 1.5 more ull get nexus 5 :)

  11. Drew says:

    IMO, the nexus4 is WAAYY cheaper (P14k+ i think) than this phone. Getting software updates is ALWAYS AN ADVANTAGE with a nexus device. And if you’re willing to wait (and spend) a bit more, then go with the nexus5 with an excellent price to value ratio.

  12. abuzalzal says:

    Yung LG Optimus G Pro ay Php17,500 na lang po sa mga online resellers

    Taena, I’m seeing shades of ALCATEL-esque pricing here. MEDIATEKTURBO +1080p should cost not more than Php14K dapat, pweh

    Lebobo kayo mga taga Lenovo!!!!

  13. marklugtu1302 says:

    19k for a Mediatek Quadcore device? asa..
    16gb internal tpos 2000mAH lang? bakit binebenta pa nila to

  14. KB24 says:

    Ahh, basta bibilhin ko pa rin ito kahit walang sd slot, may USB OTG support naman sya. And one more thing, basta inerdorse ng idol kong si Kobe Bryant, tiwala ako sa product na yan.

  15. Nagaraia says:

    ang mahal naman ng Mediatek decice nato grabeh

    di ma tu wi ran

  16. paul says:

    may bago si Lenovo, Vibe Z , quad core S800. sana ilabas dito

  17. Ron says:

    I find this too expensive for what it is, it should only be at 16k.
