Aside from being a powerful and reliable device, the smartphone balances work and play with outstanding multimedia and entertainment features. It comes with a smart PA technology that boosts audio output and a sealed sound chamber for improved resonance and better bass. Young professionals can capture important moments or take photos of presentations during meetings using VIBE P1’s 13-megapixel rear camera with fast-focus PDAF technology or its 5-megapixel front camera with multiple shooting modes and beautification features.
