Lenovo S920 is among the 6 devices luanched in the event organized by Lenovo at New Delhi, India. In this event, Lenovo has launched 6 Smartphone including its new flagship device Lenovo K900 for the different range. We have been busy reviewing all this devices and have covered the Lenovo A706, Lenovo A390, Lenovo P780 and Lenovo S820 and its the last device launched in the event, Lenovo S920.
Lenovo S920 is the company’s latest high-end smartphone in the S Series with 5.3-inches of display and powered by a 1.2 GHz quad-core processor. The device runs on Android 4.2.1 (Jelly Bean) with Lenovo’s custom UI on top and comes with dual SIM support.
Camera and Internal Storage
The Lenovo S920 comes with an 8MP rear camera,which was observed in most of the MediaTek based devices. The one thing that surprises us here is the company’s other device Lenovo S820, that have lesser price tag got the better camera of 13MP when compared to this high range Lenovo S920 and hence we think this device could have also deserved the same camera of S820 but might be company doesn’t think the same way. The camera will be assisted with LED flash and autofocus, which will further add to the quality of the pictures. On the front, the S920 sports a 2MP camera, which should perform more than decently since most of us would only be using it for video calling.
The device comes with a standard 4GB of on-board internal storage and this storage will be expandable to 32GB with a microSD card. Although 4GB will not be enough for most of us out here, the inclusion of a microSD card should make life easier.
Processor and Battery
The S920 comes with the same processor which we saw on a range of quad core devices like Gionee Dream D1, Micromax Canvas HDetc, which is the MediaTek MT6589. This is a very popular quad-core chipset from the Taiwanese manufacturer, MediaTek and designed on the cortex A7 achitecture. This processor is also coupled with the Imagination PowerVR SGX544 GPU for graphical processing on the device. The MT6589 is a proven processor, and coupled with 1GB of RAM as well, which makes it a great combination of multitask-efficient and powerful at the same time.
The device comes with a 2250mAh battery, which is better when compared to the company’s S820. But the display size of S920 is bigger compared to S820 and hence we can expect same working time for both the device using there battery. The 2250mAh would probably take you through one day only if you are not the heavy user of your device but being an heavy user of the device i would have liked to see a battery bigger than the currently provided.
Display Size and Type
The Lenovo S920 comes with a 5.3 inch screen and houses a display with 1280 x 720 Pixel HD resolution. The IPS-LCD Multi-touch Capacitive Screen can provide you a good display experience and can allow great visibility angles without any affect in the colours. The 720p HD resolution on a 5.3 inch screen means that the phone will have a decent pixel density and should provide an excellent video experience.
As we already said that the device share the same Mediatek processor with some low budget device like Micromax Canvas HD 116 and the Gionee Dream and hence this device looks bit costly. Apart from the processor the device got bigger display with the latest Android version with Lenovo’s UI and have the latest Android Version where as Micromax HD canvas has also planned to provide upgrade to Android 4.2 to its users. The User Interface will be different for both the devices.
