Lenovo Vibe B, another budget smartphone from the Chinese Manufacturer has been quietly launched in India at a price of Rs 5,799. The budgeted handset reportedly comes with 4G connectivity and will be available via offline mode.
It’s been quite some time since we saw any major launched from Lenovo as the company was focusing on competing with the likes of Xiaomi and Huawei in the upper segment. Lenovo Vibe B holds a special spot for the smartphone manufacturer as this is the same segment from where the brand established itself in the competition.
Lenovo Vibe B launch came as a surprise to us because when the smartphone was first spotted in August last year, it was touted to be a game changer for those trying an update from the feature phone category. However, no promotion strategies have been opted for this great device.

Considering the price tag, Lenovo Vibe B has all the specification, a smartphone at this range should have but a camera with fixed focus and a MediaTek processor are keeping Vibe B from becoming the ultimate buy.
However, at Rs 5,799, if you want a little of both performance and multimedia experience, from a reliable budget smartphone, Lenovo Vibe B is still one of best buys.
Note: If you have a pocket to Rs 6,999, Redmi 3S is the smartphone for you.
