The Soocas X3 was the first smart toothbrush I had and I just loved it. I used it every day and with the app, I tracked the healthy of my brushing sessions. There is some serious competition now, the Lenovo Lemei! This is, like the Soocas X3, a smart toothbrush with an app to track your brushing sessions. There is also another, new, alternative now which work even better than the Lenovo Lemei and the Soocas X3, the Oclean X!
Introduction & Specifications
The Lenovo Lemei is more advanced if we compare it to the Soocas X3. You have more modes to choose from, the looks are great, and there is a travel case to protect it while traveling. Also, the content of the package is better, and I’m convinced that the Lenovo Lemei would win it over the Soocas X3. Let’s have a look if the specifications are better too.

The box is small compared to the massive package of the Soocas X3. On the front, we see in the fancy colored letter that it is a toothbrush. There is also a sticker with Lenovo Lemei on it. On the side is a label with the name and the specifications, and that is it. Nothing more on the box.
Opening the box, we see the travel case, a manual and four brushes! With those brushes, you are good for the coming year, or for the whole family.
When you open the travel case, we see the Lenovo Lemei and a small charging cable. There is also space where you can store your brushing head.
Hardware & Design
There is not much to innovate in a toothbrush design. We don’t see anything new in the design of the Lenovo Lemei, but the colors and the finishing touches are great. The only button is clearly visible and easily clickable. It is clear on what mode you are and how to change the mode.
Charging the Lenovo Lemei is a bit of a design flaw if you ask me. The charging port is at the bottom of the toothbrush, which is fine. The problem is that there is no stand. There is only a cable so that means that the Lenovo Lemei can’t stand while charging. You have to let it hang or lay it down, which is not as nice as a stand. Hopefully, they change this in the Lenovo Lemei 2.
The travel case is simple, but it gets the job done. The hinge feels and looks fragile, and I can only hope that it won’t break down fast. There is enough space to store everything you need to charge the Lenovo Lemei, except the charging adapter. You can always use the adapter from your smartphone, so I get why Lenovo left it out the travel case.
To use the Lenovo Lemei, you need the AiBrush app. This is not a popular app, like the one from Oclean X, and you can see that in the frequency of updates and the overall look to the app. This doesn’t mean that the software isn’t working.
With this app, you are able to see the currently selected mode, the score of your last brush session and you are able to choose a mode for brushing. You can see how you brushed the last few days with the score points you get. You get a good inside in the brushing habits and possibly improve them for even better results. The app itself is not complicated and easy to use, which is a good thing.

Different Brushing Types
There are five modes to choose from, and each mode has its benefits. Let’s have a look at the different types with their benefits.
This is the standard mode of the Lenovo Lemei and is intended for daily use. Want nothing special, just clean teeth? This is the mode for you. It spins at 28800 rotations per minute.
The recommended time to brush your teeth is 2 minutes. With the sensitive mode, you clean your teeth an extra minute. This mode used reduced-power to clean your teeth gently. This mode spins at 31200 rotations per minute.
Do you suffer from bad breath? No problem! The refresh mode on the Lenovo Lemei is intended to minimize the bad breath. It improves it and let you breathe freely. This mode runs at 30000 rotations per minute.
Do you suffer from coffee, tea or smoke stains? I can imagine that this is something you want to change. Instead of getting an expensive teeth whitening procedure, you can try the Withing Mode on the Lenovo Lemei. This mode is made to fight those stains effectively. This mode runs, like the sensitive mode, at 31200 rotations per minute.
Gum Care Mode
I had it myself a few months ago. Every time I brushed my teeth, everything was bloody. My gum was bleeding badly, but this mode is made to minimize the risk of bleeding gum. It gently massages your gum. This mode runs at just 27600 rotations per minute. Really like the fact that there is a special on the Lenovo Lemei for gum care.
How Does It Brush?
I love this toothbrush. The automated timer helps me to brush for at least two minutes and reminds me every 30 seconds to change the area. Now I know for sure I brush all my teeth and that is nice to know.
Maybe you want to clean your teeth from coffee stains or you have sensitive teeth, then the mode is clear. If you have good teeth, you can still use one of the modes above. Just test them out a few times and choose your favorite. For me, the Whitening Mode is the one I use. Not that I have stains on my teeth, but I like the feeling and the possible effect of this mode.
The Lenovo Lemei has a massive 2000 mAh battery inside. This makes it possible to be on standby for 100 days! When you are using the Lenovo Lemei actively, you should be able to use it for 2 to 3 months without charging it, which is a great score if you ask me. Charging does not take that long, considering the amount of usage that you get when it is fully charged. It takes around 2 to 3 hours, which is totally fine by me.
Considering the price (when it was still available), this is a good smart toothbrush. For less then €70 euro’s, you got yourself a good functioning toothbrush which has a lot of features and a brush mode for everybody. I like that you can choose the mode that suits you the best. With the 2000 mAh battery inside, the Lenovo Lemei scores great on battery life. Charging it every 2 to 3 months is good.
Overall, the Lenovo Lemei is a great brush to use but unfortunately, it is not available anymore. Luckily, we selected a great successor of the Lenovo Lemei. Click Here to see the replacement (and even better) smart toothbrush.
