Today at the event organized at New Delhi, India Lenovo has launched 6 Smartphone including its new flagship device Lenovo K900. We have recently reviewed the Lenovo A706 and Lenovo A390 and now we will be reviewing the specs of one more device Lenovo P780 launched in the same event.
Lenovo P780, as the name suggest seems to be the successor of Lenovo P770 and have few features upgraded in this device as compared to P780. It has a 5-inch display with, powered by a 1.2 GHz quad-core MediaTek 6589 processor and runs on Android 4.2.1 (Jelly Bean) with Lenovo’s custom UI on top. So again we can see the Quad core device in the market and this time with the latest Android Version.
Camera and Internal Storage
The Lenovo P780 is featured with 8.0 MP rear camera at the back with the Auto Focus support and got the front facing 0.3 mega pixel secondary camera for the video calling. The rear camera can support you to shoot 1080P with sound which is pretty good.
This Dual SIM device will be having 4GB of internal storage and will be enabled with the MicroSD slot which can supports maximum of 64GB, Class10 Micro SD Memory Card (TF-Card). It will also has 1GB of RAM to provide the smooth performance experience.
Processor and Battery
The Lenovo P780 is powered by a Quad Core processor 1.2GHz CPU and have the chipset of MediaTek MT6589. This was the world’s first commercialized quad-core SoC (AP+BB) available for mid to high end Smartphone and tablets market and the MT6589 integrates a power-efficient Cortex-A7 Architecture with subsystem from ARM. This processor comes with PowerVR Series5XT GPU for the graphical processing of the device.
The battery of the device is really an impressive factor here as it has 4000 mAh of Li-Pol battery. This battery could run a marathon of up to 25 hours of active standby and hence you can rely easily on the this battery when you are out for a day with no power facility to charge the battery.
Display Size and Type
The P780 has a 5-inch capacitive touch screen IPS display with 178 degrees viewing angle which is one more interesting feature of the device. The device also got a very good display resolution with 1280 x 720 pixels. The 5 inch screen phone also carries features gloves and non-capacitive stylus and will be using the “super sensitive touch” technology as featured on Nokia Lumia 920 and Lumia 820. That means you can access the device with gloves on.
This device seems to be a good competitor for Samsung Quattro launched few days back as both are the mid range device and share the quad core processor. The new Galaxy Grand Quattro sports a 4.7-inch which is smaller than Lenovo 5 Inches of screen and the display resolution of Lenovo is better than 480x800p resolution of Samsung’s device. The processor of both the devices have the same frequency power of 1.2GHz with quad core processing but there is a difference in the chipset. The Lenovo will be having MediaTek MT6589 where as the Samsung will use its Qualcomm Snapdragon Processor.
Grand Quattro sports a 5.0-megapixel main camera with auto-focus and flash support where as Lenovo got 8.0MP camera. The secondary Front facing camera is same in both the device. Battery is again a big difference between this two device as the Lenovo device got double power battery when compared to Samsung Quattro. So if we check the feature, the Lenovo P780 looks a clear winner but we can ignore the price difference between the two devices. Lenovo P780 will be costing you around 6000INR more than Samsung Quattro.

Conclusion and Price
The Lenovo P780 is priced at Rs. 22529 which, to me looks bit expensive but the overall specs of the device is decent specially with the latest android version and powerful battery. There are few more device specially the Samsung Mega series which can challenge the device but in the quad core market of India the company can expect to perform well with this device. The device is not ready to sell into the market so if you want to buy Lenovo P780 then you have to wait for some time .
