Lenovo S920 Hands On and Initial Impression: My Likes and Dislikes

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

Likes:

  • 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.

Dislikes:

  • 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.
