Hi everybody. 1 month after using the Lenovo S856 I have to tell, it is a good phone. I really like its big screen. Colors are OK. Camera performance also fine. I set a ringtone and it remains. No problems when answering or using the touch screen. Everything just fine for me. I recommend it. There´s only one thing I would improve...Menu Keys don´t iluminate and there is no way (any app) to get them lighted. Excellent choice for its price.
i think this would have to be the first comment i've ever made in relation to a product in the internet.
I bought this phone because it was cheap and I had my newly purchased Asus zenfone 5 screen broken.
AVOID this phone at all costs. It is an absolute pain - like others suggested - onscreen keyboard playing up constantly, apps crashing, security notification popping up day in/day out without a resolution to stop it..It looks and feels beautiful but this is where its utility ends. I'd rather wait a bit longer, save some more money and buy something else. Comparatively, the Asus Zenfone 5 and Samsung Galaxy that I have used in the past are at least 100 times better than this Lenoso S856 in terms of functionality, consistency, performance etc.
