MWC 2014: Lenovo S860, S850 And S660, Yoga 10 HD+ Hands-on: Lenovo S860, S850 And S660 Hands-onBy cheatmaster 11:26 Sat, 14 Aug 2021 Comments
The Lenovo S860 comes with a 5.3" IPS classy screen of 720p resolution, a quad-core 1.3 Giga Hertz (GHz) MediaTek processor, 8MP capturing camera at the rear and a 1.6MP front- facer.
What impressed us in the S860 is the 4,000mAh battery, which is capable of reverse-charging other devices.
The smartphone has a brushed aluminum unibody with a pleasantly curved back. The sides of the phone have matte finish and feature the volume keys and power button with remarkable press feedback.
The Lenovo S850 is probably the most fascinating of them all. First off, let's acquire the technicalities out of the way. It goes about its business with a 5" IPS panel of 720p resolution, a quad-core 1.3Giga Hertz (GHz) MediaTek processor, a 12MP capturing camera on the back and a 5MP unit above the screen.
The Lenovo S850 comes in a variety of colors, including white and pink, and its plastic finish is meant to feel and see like glass. The 5" classy screen has fine viewing angles thanks to the IPS tech and pleasing colors. The white one looks particularly good.
The back of the phone has an underlying texture and the Lenovo logo is placed above an LED, which lights up in different colors, depending on the notification you have.
The Lenovo S660 uses a 4.7" IPS panel of qHD (540 x 960) resolution. It's powered by a quad-core 1.3 Giga Hertz (GHz) MediaTek chip.
The Lenovo S660 imitates the S860 in its build quality, trying to emulate the brushed aluminum unibody.
As you can see in the photos above, the Lenovo S660 comes with a bumper case, which has a clasp at the back to utilize as a pocket clip. Even better, it doubles as a desktop stand. It's likely that this case will be bundled with the Lenovo S660 in the retail box.
All three devices have a custom skin on top of Android 4.2. It looks like a bldiscontinue of Samsung's TouchWiz and LG's Optimus UI, skewed towards the latter. Performance on all three smartphones is okay but far from the KitKat beasts at the top of the food chain.
