Lenovo IdeaPhone K860 hands-on

We already saw the Lenovo IdeaPhone K860 in the hands-on images when it launched in India last year, now we have the hands-on video from the CES 2013. The Lenovo K860 is the company’s high-end Android smartphone that launched in India last November at a price tag of Rs. 28,499. It has a 5-inch (720 x 1280 pixels) HD IPS display with wide 178 degree viewing angle which looks good and the phone feels solid. It is powered by a 1.4 GHz quad-core Exynos 4412 processor and it runs on Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) with Lenovo’s custom UI.

Lenovo K860 Hands-on

Recently at an event in Chennai, Lenovo unveiled their new strategy for the Indian market in which they announced their foray into the highly competitive and booming Smartphone market. We were there at the press briefing and they had launched a total of five devices. Naturally, we got a brief hands on with every one of them. We bring some photos and our thoughts about Lenovo’s all new portfolio of devices for India.

First up is the Lenovo K860, this is Lenovo’s flagship phone that has all the top end specs that we crave for.

The Lenovo K860 has a 5-inch (720 x 1280 pixels) IPS display with a wide 178 degree viewing angle. From what we saw, the display is absolutely gorgeous, we would keep it right up there, at the top along with all the other beautiful IPS displays from the One X, the 4x HD and even the Optimus G, but our only small gripe was the blacks, they could have been deeper.

On the inside, it is powered by a 1.4 GHz quad-core Exynos 4412 processor with Mali 400M GPU. During our short hands on, we found no hint of lag, everything(except the multitasking switcher) was zippy smooth, much like the Galaxy S3 with similar innards.

The connectivity options include, 3G (HSDPA: 21 Mbps, HSUPA: 5.76Mbps), WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0, aGPS. It has 1GB LPDDR2 RAM, 8GB eMMC, expandable memory up to 32GB with microSD and a massive 2250 mAh battery. With the memory at just 8GB, it is clear that they had cost reduction in mind, but the inclusion of the micro SD slot is welcome. But we do appreciate Lenovo for that massive 2250 mAH battery that can easily sustain this phone through a busy day. Continue reading “Lenovo K860 Hands-on”
