Lenovo K860, P700i, S880, S560 and A60+ hands-on: First look - read the full textLenovo held an event in India where they announced five new Android smartphones will be hitting the local market. The A60+, the K860, P700i, S560 and the S880. The phones span a wide price range, starting from around $120 for the cheapest A60+ to $530 for the most expensive K860...


Sort by:

actually her in PH Lenovo K860 is priced at Php 18.8k but considering other high end droids like LG optimus 4x hd at Php 19.9k, HTC One x Php21k and SGS3 at Php22k, I would definitely be more considerate to other tested brands like one - availability of customer service center and spare parts, 2 - xda support would extend the life cycle of the phone.

Going by the gsmarena's hands-on and their announced prices and lenovo's brand value in india, the best sales could be registered by P700i (inr 12500 approx. usd 230, 2500 mah, 720p and autofocus, exceptional build quality ). K860 cannot clock much sales until it's price becomes significantly than SGS3 (no JB announcement). A60+'s potential is just ruined by just 256 mb ram and no front camera. Micromax A100 is better than S880 in terms of price and word of mouth. S560 stands no chance due to it's low ppi and low resolution. So only P700i and k860 will stand tall and could perform well among other known established brands.

In india brand value of lenovo is not as good as dell (dell is not making any smartphones!) . So it may be able to divert (from micromax, karbonn, etc) very less customers on brand value only.

K860 is half the price lower than galaxy s3 with same cpu here in ph.... how was that sounds... although s3 has more features to give but with the quality and low price of k860, thats enough to experience a fast smartphone, ill be getting this one soon.

Lenovo S560 has dolby digital plus in Indian model which is S560 DS. but for 14k not worthy.
Now Lenovo S880 for 18-19k hahaha Check micromax A110 its far better than this for 10k only..

Conclusion *** FLOP SHOW ***

I think K860 is great only if it had like 16 GB internal storage, Other specs are very great especially CPU+GPU.

Unbelievable! there are at least 2 phones with dual core, big battery, with 4" IPS screen under 15K INR. Even the 6.5 K phone is having better configuration than the micromax, karbonn or Spice. But, still the people are not happy.. I will buy lenovo rather than micromax, spice, celkon, intex or karbonn for that price..

Why all the hate for Lenovo? Lol, I think you guys aren't seeing how the prices of these phones compare to their counterparts. These phones definitely give more bang for the buck for the price than all the major brands. At way cheaper prices, you can't expect them to perform better than the others, but they are on par right?

Good job in giving us good specs for the price Lenovo. I'll definitely be saving up for your phones!!!

5 inch 480x800... I don't want to live on this planet anymore. We though 480x800 on 4.3 inch was bad.

I dont know why. but i sense lenovo copy all popular phones.
specially S880 really like optimus Vu
or p700 Like Asus padphone. & K860 a bit like Optimus4x.
but.. they do great job!

Top manufactures be aware!
