Donning an SRP of just Php 4,799, Vibe C is one of the most affordable devices in Lenovo's current mobile devices line-up for the Philippines.

For that amount, buyers will already get a fairly powerful handset with a 5-inch HD IPS display panel that should look crisp and clear when viewed from various angles, a 5 MegaPixel autofocus rear camera, a 2 MP selfie cam, HD video recorder, and a removable 2,300 mAh Li-Ion battery pack.

At its heart, the handset runs its Vibe-UI-flavored Android 5.1.1 Lollipop operating system with a Quad Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 chipset, has 1GB of RAM for multitasking, and comes with 8 GB of internal storage that can be beefed up using the microSD card slot.

One of the best features of this model is that it already supports 4G LTE connectivity. This means that the user can enjoy ultra-fast data speeds on this smartphone on-the-go -- perfect for streaming movies via iflix and uploading clips on Youtube, among other things.

Lenovo Vibe C is now available via the company's authorized retail channels both online and in major malls nationwide. TP Friend Charles Quiachon spotted this particular handset model while strolling in CyberZone area of SM North EDSA Annex last Saturday, June 25, 2016. I give him credit for the photos that I used in this TP entry. Thanks, Charles!
