Lenovo Vibe X2 Review: A Multi-Layered Performer!

Last year Lenovo took the wraps off a two-pronged strategy for its Vibe range of smartphones.

This is turning out to be a wonderful year for all those who believe that one should not be forking out a fortune (or heck, the price of a MacBook Air) for a good smartphone.
