Camera and Internal storage

Lenovo S660 comes loaded with an 8MP camera. The camera comes with face detection and HDR mode.  The phone packs in lots of heat with the Mediatek MT6582M chipset. Lenovo S660 is in direct competition for Motorola Moto G and thus it scores higher when it comes to the camera as its 8 MP offers a higher pixel count. Much can’t be said about the camera quality as it is still not tested. The secondary camera is a VGA so its just offers basic video calling and nothing more than that.

Lenovo S660 has an internal storage of 8GB which is expandable to 32 GB. This feature puts it above Motorola Moto G which is its direct competitor. Moto G has an option of 8/16 GB internal memory but no option for expansion. Other phones in this segment do offer expandable storage so Lenovo S660 stands on even ground with the other counterparts.

Processor and battery

LG S660 boasts of a 1.3 Ghz quad core processor backed by 1 GB of RAM. The phone has a Mali-400 MP2 GPU clocked at 416 Mhz to satisfy your gaming appetite. The S660’s quad core processor enables better multitasking, delivers a smoother Android experience and eliminates stutter when playing games or HD video.

LG S660 boasts of a huge 3000 mAh Li-ion battery which can deliver up to 10 hours of talk time on a 3G network. The phone has a 4.7 inch screen and still the battery delivers a substandard talk time.

Display and other features

Lenovo S660 has a 4.7 inch IPS (in plane switching) LCD screen which offers large viewing angles and stable response time. The in-plane switching (IPS) feature allows for nearly 180-degrees of wide-angle viewing. You can also hold and control the S660 comfortably with one hand. The screen has a resolution of 960 x 540 pixels with a pixel density of 234 ppi, which will be apt for a good viewing experience.

On the Software front this phone runs on Android 4.2 which is a disappointment as Moto G offers the latest Android 4.4 in the same price bracket.

Comparison

Lenovo S660 will compete with the likes of Xolo Q1010i, Gionee M2, Lava Iris 504Q+, Lava Iris Pro 20 and Motorola Moto G

Conclusion

Lenovo S660 scores high on some features when compared with its counterparts while on the others it just manages to hit a modest number. Lenovo S660 is protected by an aluminium laced back cover which lends it sturdiness against the accidental falls and drops.  Lenovo has tried to offer a Moto G competitor with MicroSD card and 8 MP rear camera, but it would still be hard to outshine the best selling smartphone from Motorola.
