Lenovo S660 Review

By -

Lenovo has taken over Motorola but that has not stopped them from rolling their own phones out. Lenovo S660 is the new budget smartphone addition to their growing line of smartphones. The phone is really good in many ways. It surely has a shot of being worth for your money. Let us see if this is exactly the one you are searching for.

Design

The first thing you would notice about this phone is the high quality material encasing the hardware. It is simply stunning. It looks like a streamline flagship model. Lenovo S660 has a really normal size and it wraps in your hand comfortably. Thanks to the amazing mettalic grip, it sticks right in. Lenovo S660 is so cold and premium to hold, it will blow you away. The built quality is simply suberb.

Display

I did not know what the qHD 960×540 resolution was all about. Lenovo S660 has a 4.7 inch qHD display. It is soothingly beautiful to the eyes. I would not say it has the best colour tone there is around this price tag but it simply looks so clean and well detailed it is a display you would want to look at your all the time. Yes, the colour tone could have been much better. But I like it for what it is. Lenovo S660 has a great display, hands down.

Camera

The 8MP camera on the Lenovo S660 is pretty clean. It takes good photos, decent is written all over it. Like maximum phones on the planet, compared to the natural image, the photos come pretty undersaturated and lack that awe that most of the flagship or even md-ranged phones have. The front camera is pretty ok. Video quality by the 8MP sensor is nice as well.

Software

Lenovo S660 runs on the Android v4.2 Jelly Bean, I do think there is or there will be a further update available. I look at the Lenovo S660 and the UI looks pretty awesome. It is not clutterd like the Samsung’s TouchWiz and has a naturally good vibe to it.

Performance

Lenovo S660 runs on a 1.2GHz Quad Core processor that gives it a blazing fast speed. Thanks to there under optimized fast processors, Android lag has almost vanished from the face of earth. The 1GB RAM gives you good multitasking options and outstanding performance along with that processor. Lenovo S660 gives you 8GB of internal memory which you can expand to 32GB. It does not have NFC but you get bluetooth if you are searching for sharing and pairing with 3rd party hardware devices.

Passion and Inspiration drives my life and I get them both from technology. Getting to write about it is an absolute bliss. The bliss comes from people reading what you want to convey. There is nothing better for a person than his views to be heard. I am a music, tv shows, movies and technological enthusiast.

4 Comments to Lenovo S660 Review

  1. Good review. but please tell about s660 ‘s battery performance in detail. how much free ram we get after installing lots of applications?

    • Good battery backup when compared to Samsung galaxy s3. I have both s3 and s660. Now I am getting full day on s660. I configured two emails which syncing on every 15 minutes and using WiFi around 6 hours a day.

      Front camera in lenovo s660 is very very poor. Also facing difficulties with multi window. Its call log display is not good.

      I recommend this phone.

    S660 is value for money no doubt, but there is one performance feature that is lacking, it does not have a good call log display. This may prove to be its Acchiles tendon, pulling it behind its competitors. Lenovo ought to give an update soon.
