Features

Let's start with the best Lenovo Vibe UI features. These are features that are particularly interesting because they stand out from the normal gesture control (waving a hand over the screen to switch tabs, pages etc.).

Secure Zone

This is a separate space on your device that has its own wallpaper and apps. Its like a secret compartment for protecting things that you wouldn't want you parents to see or maybe you just like the idea of having privacy.

The secure zone on the Lenovo Vibe UI interface allows you to receive notifications from the "normal, unsecured zone" and vice versa. If you are in the normal zone and there is a notification in the secure zone, users will see a notification with a tiny red dot in front. Tap it and unlock the secure zone to see the what's up. There is also a floating button that allows you to easily navigate between the two zones effortlessly.

Stock Android

Unlike TouchWiz and HTC Sense, Lenovo allows users to remove the Lenovo Vide UI and use the normal unedited stock Android user interface. Do you want to know how to Disable the Vibe UI? Its really simple and you can do so via the settings on your device. Read: How to Disable Lenovo Vibe UI.

Micro screen

If you are using a device with a large screen then you might want to shrink the size of the screen to a mobile friendly size. Using the micro screen feature, with your thumb, you can simply draw the letter C from the top edge of the device screen to the bottom edge and this activates a  one-handed mini screen.

Smart camera mode

This mode is for amateur photographers who simply want to point and shoot. It eliminates all the advance and perhaps overwhelming features and simplifies the camera interface for everyday users like myself.
