Lenovo made an entry into the smartphone market this year and went on to bring out several handsets at a variety of price points. Being a company that is reputed for manufacturing some of the best laptops and computers, they've now managed to deliver that exact same quality and innovation in their smartphones.
As far as Lenovo S920 is concerned, it's a huge handset which was launched in India recently and retails at Rs. 20,000. Given its price point, S920 is pitted against the likes of Samsung Galaxy Grand and Sony Xperia P and SP. Lenovo S920 features Dual SIM capability and has an abundant 5.3 inch display, making it a phablet.
For our review, GizBot used a white colored unit.
In The box
Apart from the phablet, the box contains a mini-USB cable, which doubles up as a power cord when connected to the charging adapter. There is a neat pair of in-earphones plus an assortment of buds that you can choose from depending on the size of your ear lobes. Also included is a tiny manual for the phablet.
Form Factor and Design
Lenovo S920 happens to be more than a handful given its 5.3 inch display. Talking about design, Lenovo decided to keep things simple and elegant, giving the phablet a lustrous paint job, rounded edges and a clean bezel. Given its large size, it is obvious that you're going to need both hands to perform even the most simple actions. But if you're accustomed to devices like the Galaxy Note 2, then you'll feel right at home.
As expected, the back cover is removable, allowing you to access the battery, slip in two SIMs and even a microSD card. Once measured, you'll come up with these dimensions : 77.7x154x7.9 mm. The phablet weighs 159 grams.
The S920 is rather slim at 7.9 mm. Yes, it isn't the sleekest device that we've seen in a while, but hold it next to its competitors from the same price bracket and you'll notice that the S920 is easily leaner than most of them.
We noticed that the device's all-plastic body uses cheap material in certain areas. The S920 is a sturdy phablet and is more on the solid side of things. But we wish that Lenovo had chosen to give it a solid metal body similar to the ones designed by HTC. We also noticed that the paint on the back of the phablet began to fade only days after we received the unit, so you're going to need a case for sure. Also, the back cover was made out of extremely low grade plastic and felt rather fragile.
