Title: New Lenovo Phone
Post by: marculos on May 20, 2013, 04:33:40 PM
Not a review, just an observation of a new model that I now want ! After having my Lenovo phone 6 months I can safely say the quality is great ,the fact I havent broken it (apart from being stupid and bricking it) is amazing.

So for £125 you get
Quad core CPU 1.2 Ghz, Power VR GPU
1GB RAM / 4GB ROM
5" IPS Screen
Dual SIM
GPS / Bluetooth / Wifin
2 cameras 0.3MP  front, 8MP back with flash

I would say spec wise its much better than the equivalent Samsung Ace, or Sony Xperia that you can get for albeit a bit cheaper.

Hardware wise the phone will be fine I'm sure, these phones are not generic chinese crap. The biggest issue I had with mine was software as the phone didn't come rooted , google play etc didnt work and there wasn't much help on the net. I got there in the end though. Etotalk provide rooted firmware anyway, if I was to buy another I'd probably spend a few extra quid and get it pre-rooted.

So the biggest issue is support really as these phones don't get official releases in europe. Help will eventually appear on the xda forums though and  I'll defo have another :)
