I had a short time hands on with the Lenovo S920. It is one of the three devices being introduced by Lenovo recently.
Lenovo S920 specs:
- 1.2 GHz Quad Core MediaTek MT6589 processor
- PowerVR SGX544MP GPU
- 1GB RAM
- 4GB internal memory, expandable via MicroSD up to 32GB
- 5.3 inch IPS HD LCD display (720 x 1280) display, 277 ppi
- 8 megapixel rear facing camera with autofocus and LED flash
- 2 megapixel front facing camera
- HSPA+, Wi-FI, Wi-Fi hotspot, Bluetooth
- GPS, A-GPS
- 2,250 mAh battery
- Android 4.2.1 Jellybean
- SRP: P16,999
- Display – Nice display. Viewing angles are great.
- Design – Lenovo has leveled up its design. Its more appealing to the eye.
- Hardware – We all know that Lenovo makes really good smartphones. In short “matibay”. It just feels so sturdy and solid. I think it can take light bumps.
- Good camera – One thing I don’t like about Lenovo is the camera. I was surprised with the big improvement. However, I wasn’t able to test it on low light conditions. So far pictures in good lighting conditions look really great.
- Software – This is the first Lenovo smartphone I’ve tested running a MediaTek processor that doesn’t lag. It performs smoothly mainly due to its simplified UI.
- Price – Darn its expensive! For P16,999 I would rather buy a Nexus 4.
- No LTE – I think what Lenovo should do to compete further with Samsung is to offer LTE-capable phones. For the price, the Lenovo S920 should have LTE, otherwise, the Starmobile Diamond V7 and MyPhone Iceberg (both have a bigger 5.7 inch HD screen) would be a better choice.
