Some phones boast about being the slimmest in the world. Some aim to be the lightest. Not the Lenovo S860. Next to any of today's waif-like smartphones, this one looks like a military tank. It's unapologetically hefty, but promises one massive feature that many other companies have chosen to let slide over the years: multiple-day battery life.

Lenovo S860 Summary

Phone manufacturers have been racing to see how slim phones can get, often at the cost of battery capacity and other features. Lenovo is doing quite the opposite with the S860 - this phone is enormous and its 4,000mAh battery should last at least a day and a half with moderate usage. In other respects, this phone is quite average. It was beaten in our benchmark tests by other devices which cost a fair bit less, but at least its camera took some good shots. Lenovo uses a simplified custom UI and there are a few helpful apps thrown in. The only really good reason to get this phone is its battery.

  • Wof.. Super Bull Battery!
    Ratul Aich (May 27, 2014) on Gadgets 360
    The phone works very smooth. After loading plenty of apps (97 count) still 1304 ram is available. Battery management app is super cool. One touch convert it from regular use to battery saving to emergency (3 mode). It take some time to recharge the battery but once the battery is recharged I can use it for 2 days straight. Use a screen protector because it don't have gorilla glass. Heating while using the phone is minimal, though during charging it get heated a bit. Navigation and layouts are crisp and clear. Due to size benefit it give unique pleasure to read and navigate from one page to another effortlessly. 12 gb space is available and for me that is enough to load music, videos and pdf. Remember it have 2 version. One is from china which have 1gb ram and the other one is from india which have 2 gb ram. So order it from lenevo online store and if ordering it from anywhere else do go through the specs properly.

  • Brilliant phone!!!!!!!!
    Praful Yadav (May 16, 2014) on Gadgets 360
    1-)SCREEN: bright,vivid nd vibrant,excellent viewing angles,crisp but a little prone to finger-prints without screen guard, gud visibility in sunlight. 2-)BATTERY: i used continuously during working hours got 2 days backup,battery performance is excellent as its is Li-Po non-removable battery instead of Li-ion ,nice battery app. 3-)PROCESSOR: mediatek performs well without any lags in working and graphic intensive gaming too. Full HD playback also worked smoothly,no heating problem. 4-)CALLING: call quality is loud and clear due noise cancellation mic(s) 5-)CAMERA: rear camera is excellent and take sharp images without any noise,low light imaging is also very good,video quality @1080p recording is great, front camera performance is ok for video chats but not for selfies. 6-)RAM: 2gb, applications perform task butter smooth. 7-)OS: android jellybean 4.2.2 upgradable to kitkat i liked the custom UI layer more as it is more refreshing. There is no app drawer i installed nova launcher from playstore and got perfect experience. 8-)DESIGN: business class premium looks,sturdy and durable body, i fell in love as i saw it.It has a bit more thickness than average but that provides an excellent grip. 9-)LOUDSPEAKER: very good for watching movies and listening music,nice sound balance and is pretty loud,crystal clear without any distortion as they are positioned very well. 10-)ACCESSORIES: charger,usb charger cable,earphones of gud quality,warranty card,user manual. CONS: 1-) no MicroSD slot, but OTG is supported so u can attach your pendrive,mouse,keyboard etc. 2-) back cover is not available in market as it is a new phone but u can get screen guard on it. I suggest that if you have budget around 20000 then go for this without to much thinking as it an all rounder smartphone which easily beats grand2,Xperia m2,Xperia c and LG-Lseries phones in this price segment.

  • nice smartphone!
    Levi Li (Mar 5, 2015) on Gadgets 360
    Well. This cell phone did not let me down even though I purchased this from a China retailer, efox-shop.com Comes from China Multi language for more options Android operating system Sturdy construction,a little bit heavy in hands Nice battery life(This is all I cared about since this is a present for my nephew. Yep, He game a lot.) Got nothing to complaint so far, a nice present for self! When I receive my phone from their DE warehouse, it's having 20e discount..oops.. But they refund me that 20e with a coupon, nice job! Anyway, it's really worthy to have a try with this smartphone! 92 scores for my first order in an international store

  • SCREEN IS TOO BRITTLE
    Jayanta Bhowmick (Oct 13, 2014) on Gadgets 360
    Positives:%0a1) Long battery life%0a2) 2GB RAM%0a3) Good processor speed%0a4) 16GB internal memory ( Available 12 GB)%0a5) USB on the go%0a%0aNegatives:%0a%0a1) Very brittle screen, one fall and you are gone.My mobile fell accidentally the screen was broken into pieces.On going the service station they say the touch screen and glass both comes as a single piece and need to replace it It costs Rs 9000. I never faced this with Samsung mobiles with Gorilla glass which fell numerous time without any crack.%0aI had no option other than changing it.But it feels like being cheated.Why unnecessarily I had to bear the cost of touch screen also,when it was working fine.%0a%0a2) No option of expandable memory%0a
