Summary of advantages
Lenovo Vibe X3:
* Higher-clocked CPU
* Bigger internal storage
* Better rear and front camera
* Ir blaster and newer Bluetooth version
* Better audio chip
* Slightly larger battery
Lenovo Vibe K4 Note:
* Dedicated microSD card slot
* Thinner and lighter
* More affordable
Based on the specs above, the Vibe X3 is the better-equipped device which is mostly evident on the camera specs, internal storage, and audio technology. Lenovo will most likely promote this phone as a media- and camera-centric smartphone, however, the Php22,099 price tag (based on Villman listing), might turn off some buyers.
For those who are on a budget, the Vibe K4 Note seems to be a more attractive option. There are some compromises especially if you compare it to the Vibe X3 but you get microSD card expansion via a dedicated slot, thinner and lighter body, and a pocket-friendly Php10,699 price tag (based on Villman listing).
Based on Lenovo’s promotions on Facebook and Villman’s listing, both smartphones support Lenovo’s Theatre Max feature and will come with a free VR headset.
The Lenovo Vibe X3 and Vibe K4 Note will launch in the country on April 8.
