Lenovo unvealed the stylish S820 with Quad-core processor and 4.7" HD screen for Rs.18999

Are you thinking of buying a good-quality & stylish mid-range smartphone? Lenovo has recently launched the S820 smartphone last month. It is Dual-SIM and has Corning® Curved Glass.

Lenovo S820 Specifications:
  • 4.7-inch (1280 x 720) HD IPS with 2.5D curved glass display and 178° viewing angle
  • 1.2 GHz quad-core MediaTek MTK6589W processor
  • PowerVR SGX544 GPU
  • Android 4.2.1 (Jelly Bean)
  • Dual SIM (GSM + GSM)
  • 8.95 mm thick | 143g weight
  • 13 MP rear camera with LED Flash which captures 100 consecutive shots in burst mode
  • 2 MP front-facing camera
  • 1 GB RAM | 4 GB internal memory | 32 GB expandable
  • 3G | WiFi 802.11 b/g/n | Bluetooth | GPS/A-GPS
  • 2000 mAh battery
You can visit the official site for detailed specs and features:

Since you can easily get MediaTek-based smartphones with more features within Rs. 15K, its high price may be attributed to its beautiful design. Lenovo's marketing team has been working hard to emphasize the phone's vivid redness, soft curves and velvet finish to back its case. This seems to compete with Micromax Canvas HD A116 and LAVA Iris 504Q. Although the S820 looks definitely better than both and also has uniqueness factor (how many people have you really seen with Lenovo smartphone? ), but Canvas A116 and Iris 504Q definitely have an edge due to competitive pricing.

The official site states the phone to be priced at Rs. 19,000. But you can get it at lesser price from local retailers.

Here comes the gaming beast by XOLO, the Play T1000 with NVIDIA core

XOLO, which is the world's first brand to bring Intel processors to mobiles through their X-series, has now become the first Indian brand to launch an NVIDIA Tegra 3 based smartphone, titled, the Play T1000. As its name suggests, the phone is aimed at folks who need hardcore gaming on their phones.

The most interesting aspect of the phone is the processor. Xolo Play features a Tegra 3 processor. The phone is not a quad-core phone but a 5-core phone! Yes, that’s right. The phone will come with a quad-core 1.2 GHz processor with a special “5th battery saver processor”. Although the processor is a little outdated being just more than a year old, its gaming performance is definitely better than that of other budget phones with MediaTek processors. Since XOLO is marketing the phone as a ‘gaming device’ but the internal memory is still pretty low at 4 GB. How could they assume that gamers would not load their device with GBs of games! But the XOLO Play enables to directly save and install your apps on your SD card.

Here are the basic specifications:
  • 4.7-inch HD (1280 x 720 pixels) capacitive IPS display at 312 ppi
  • Android 4.1.1 (Jelly Bean) OS
  • 1.5 GHz quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 processor with 416 MHz 12 Core NVIDIA ULP GeForce GPU
  • 8 Megapixel camera with BSI sensor, LED Flash, 1080p video recording
  • 2 MP front-facing camera
  • 10.4 mm thick and weighs 167 grams
  • Full HD 1080p video playback
  • 3G HSPA+ 21 Mbps | WiFi 802.11 b/g/n | Bluetooth 3.0 | GPS / aGPS
  • 1 GB RAM | 4 GB internal memory | upto 32 GB expandable memory
  • 3.5 mm audio jack | 2000 mAh battery

  • Crisp display and very good viewing angles
  • Smooth multitasking
  • Great gaming performance
  • Decent images in well-lit conditions
  • Good build quality
  • Vanilla Android UI with very few bloatwares
  • Camera performance is bad in low-lit situations
  • Low internal memory
  • Older gen Android 4.1 Jelly Bean

If playing games on the go is an absolute requirement, then XOLO Play is the obvious choice around the budget of Rs. 15,000. If gaming isn't your primary requirement, you have a good variety of budget phones around the Rs. 15,000 price point to choose from including the Xolo Q1000, Canvas HD, Zen Ultrafone 710HD and Lenovo A706 to name a few.

Lenovo is pushing the smartphone design boundaries by launching the powerful K900

Most people know Lenovo as the company that makes laptops and desktops. It is not a firm that we think of when we start looking for our next smartphone. Lenovo's goal this year is to change this. It wants to be known as a company that doesn't only sell laptops but also the one that makes great computing devices, whether they are traditional computers or smartphones.
In China, Lenovo has already become one of the top smartphone sellers. India, which has a similar high-volume and value-driven smartphone market, looks like a good market for the company. This is the reason why in the last month Lenovo launched six smartphones priced between Rs 30,000 and Rs 8,689.

Of these, the most outstanding device is the phablet K900 which was launched in June at around Rs. 32,000 but now available at Rs. 26,000. Its USP is its durable body which is carved out of Stainless Steel and an ultra-slim form factor. It also the first smartphone to have Intel's Clovertrail processor under its hood.

Lets have a look at its specifications:

  • 5.5 inch (1920 x 1080 pixels) Full HD IPS display with 419 PPI pixel density and Gorilla Glass 2 protection
  • 2 GHz dual-core Intel Atom Z2580 processor with Intel Hyper-Threading technology
  • Intel® GMA graphics clocked at 533 MHz
  • Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean)
  • 13MP rear camera with dual LED Flash | 2MP front camera
  • 3.5 mm audio jack | USB On-the-Go
  • 2GB RAM | 16GB internal memory
  • 3G | WiFi 802.11 b/g/n | Bluetooth | FM Radio
  • GPS | Light Sensor | Gravity Sensor | Proximity Sensor
  • 2500 mAh battery
Obviously, the K900 ticks all the right boxes from hardware point of view. But it also has customized the Jellybean UI with its custom skin. The phone has a unique but awesome design with features that can easily compete with Samsung Galaxy Mega. And at the price point of around 25K, its worth-buying. You can also check-out its detailed review here.
