Regarding the internal storage, this quite normal with all manufacturers. My Xperia SP has 5.8GB availble memory, even though the specs say 8GB internal memory. Samsung S4 Mini only has 4.7GB, which is the WORST phone ever with bloatware!
Luckily, Lenovo S930 has the option to install apps directly to SD card so internal memory becomes irrelevant for me.

A portion of the said 8gb internal memory is occupied by the system. Manufacturers should start using the term "user available storage" instead of just "internal storage".
How long the battery life for full 3G used as hard way browsing, sosmed and medium entertainment (music)???...
I just bought a Lenovo S930 AP set. Just been a full 24hrs, but the entire system is in chinese, and even though I chose my language as English, all of the apps and others are in Chinese plus the entire system is under some Chinese system, not as per what other android using phones are. There is no Google store installed and even my touch keypad is in a form of a China-phone. I contacted the shop from where I bought and the guy told me the english software is not uodated yet and asked me to come by next week. Just wanted to know, is it normal to have Chinese phone system in a brand new phone? I just don't want my money to go waste as I really liked the phone.
Interested in using this hp..big screen...hope it is good phone for me for facebook..browsing...youtube and watching video..
Overall, this is a good phone but the specification maybe wrong, would suggest people to pay attention at storage capacity, GSM spec stat its 8gb but ended up less than that.
If you buy phone for Youtube, this is definitely not your choice, youtube is laggy. But performance wise is consider better than lower ranked phone if you prefer a budget line big screen phone, my advise is not to view video with this phone.
Without access to developer options is definitely a con, as there are use who prefer to kill all task running on background.
Touch screen wise is consider at standard, some laggy when you drag the console from top to bottom. User may had to perform that action fast so they couldn't feel the lag.
The music player, obtain free access to download music is a great idea for user, giving us alternative options to download music for free instead of buying. Well, i personally haven't try that.
Camera wise is acceptable, picture is automatically adjust to maximum quality. In my standpoint, this is superb.
Music output, the built in software, DOLBY is enhancing music output at maximum quality. Would recommend that so much, and if you want to boost your music experience. Make sure you buy good handsfree like beats or razer hammerhead.
Actually the price that is about 700+,it is the ap set...Im also got the ap set,because its just the same as the original.just take good care of the device,bcause,ap set the warranty is cover only by the shop where you purchased it,meanwhile the original,the warranty is covered by any Lenovo service centre.
I have been to the shop and check this phone, on the list on gsmarena battry non removeable but on the other shop I have checked and the battry is removeable and price only MYR 745.00.

Why s930 without the "developer options "? I can use it from A850 easily. Please tell me the problem.
Bought mine today for RM745. Why my phone shows the screen is 1280×1920 ? But gsmarena shows 720x1280 ?
Have bought it..it's a good one..
-Good quality n responsive 720p screen
-Physic key (menu,home n back button) not soft key on the screen,so u got a full 6" screen
-dual on sim
-mediocre camera but still produce good pic
-Led notification just for missed call n sms..not for bbm,whatsapp etc..
-more than 300ppi screen might be better for it,cos the video playback looks little jaggies..
-the system update via update menu isnt work (has download it,but show error on execution..maybe i must get a sdcard first)
Plying video on youtube got spike..i buy this to watch youtube but...
Found the video recording in HD very grainy. It is happened to your unit too? Or S930 camera lens are "rubbish" for HD recording?
