Big (Small Budget) Device with Bad Camera
By Praful Yadav | 19 May 2014
Display is good with Modest pixel density and satisfactory viewing angles. But brightness and sunlight visibility is not upto the mark. 540x960 pixel resolution is not apt for a 5.5 display. But pixels are not embarrassingly visible and lenovo manage it well.
Touch & Typing:
Atleast for an hour, I though touch is a Gone Case in this device but as I continued using it, the touch became relatively smooth and more usable than the first one hour. Might be an initial Hic-Up!! Keypad is well laid and is comfortable to type both in landscape and portrait modes. Point to mention here is the keyboard has the inbuilt quality of continuous input which makes life even more easy.
Plays Mid level games to moderate Highlevel games properly without an issues. Tried Subway Surfers, Templerun 2, Dead Trigger, Asphaly 8 etc and all of them played seamlessly.
Gives 21 Mbps speed on HSDPA+ and all works very well. Call clarity is good and no call drops faced so far.
Works on ARMv7 Processor clocked at 1.3 Ghz and 1 Gb RAM out of which more than 580MB is free and user available. Interal memory is 4GB out of which 1.2 GB is used for Mass storage and 0..91 GB is free for Apps. 32GB expandability is allowed.
This is the only Con of the phone as far as I am concerned. Outdoor snaps and Ok ok.. but indoor snaps are pathetic. Noika 2MP cam is far better than this 5MP cam. So if you want to take a lot of snaps, this is certainly not a better option for you. ANd if you are ignoring camera part, this is one of the better devices available at a budget price of below 13K.
A 4 Star rating gives proper justification as Camera is bad. UI is simple with additional themes pre-installed on the device. Lenovo should work on cameras of their devices. But at this price, 1.3 GHz Quadcore processor and 1GB RAM is impressive. Value for Money phone and definitely deserves a try.
