NDTV

This phone is unapologetically old-school and unfashionable when it comes to priorities.

- Jamshed Avari, NDTV
The Mobile Indian

The Lenovo S860 still manages to walk a step ahead with the amazing battery life.

Fone Arena

Premium design, dual-SIM capabilities and one of a kind battery

from Fone Arena

Lenovo S860 is already available in the market and with a price tag of INR 18,000 the device is definitely an interesting offering.

The standout feature is the gigantic 4,000mAh battery and that’s beyond any shadow of doubt.

However, the smartphone is not a powerhouse when it comes to performance, but the quad-core processor, capable GPU and 2GB of RAM can just hold things together – which is more than enough for a mid-range offering...

Software on the Lenovo S860 is a let-down. It doesn’t compliment the hardware configure that is reasonable for the price tab, but as we said earlier, the company can correct it with timely firmware upgrades and patches. The camera is another aspect that can be partially improved with the software.

Bucking trends and breaking rules

The Lenovo S860 does not perform as well as the current crop of popular mid-range Android phones such as the Xiaomi Mi 3 and Asus Zenfone 5. Considering it's priced higher than either of those two devices, things really don't look good for it.

The battery is of course a compelling argument in favour of the S860. You should be able to get at least a day and a half worth of uninterrupted usage including a reasonable amount of time spent on calls, messaging, Web surfing, gaming and watching videos - but as tempting as that sounds, you'll have to decide whether it's worth putting up with this phone's bulk, weight, and average performance.

Metallic soldier with massive battery

from The Mobile Indian

The Lenovo S860 brings a metallic sturdiness along with awesome battery life to the table. While the user interface does need a facelift, it can be fixed using third party launchers and icon packs. If you are not one of the benchmark rank brags, the Lenovo S860 can easily impress you.
