Lenovo S820 - Red Hot

I have not been terrible impressed with Lenovo as a smartphone maker. I am not fond of Lenovo own flavor of Android. I am not impressed by the companies track record on updating the operating system on their devices. The phones they design are, in my opinion, uninspired. Still, a lot of people must like their phones as Lenovo has been climbing the smartphone manufacturers charts.


Lenovo has been releasing a dizzying array of models, a strategy successfully employed by Samsung before it. One of Lenovo's new offerings for the second half of the year is the Lenovo S820. The Lenovo S820 is a step up in design from previous Lenovo offerings. It also up the ante in the hardware department with a 4.7-inch 720p display mated to a quad core Mediatek Processor for a street price of Php12,600. Yup, this phone is priced to take on the likes of the Cherry Mobile Cosmos X2 and the Starmobile Knight.

Quick specifications:
  • Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean)
  • 4.7-inch HD (720 x 1280) display protected by Gorilla Glass
  • 4 GB internal storage expandable via a MicroSD card slot
  • 1 GB RAM
  • 1.2 GHz quad core MediaTek MT6589W processor
  • PowerVR SGX544 graphics
  • 12 MP autofocus primary camera with LED Flash
  • 2 MP front camera
  • HSPA+
  • WiFi
  • Bluetooth
  • A-GPS
  • 2000 mAh battery

The Lenovo S820 is an excellent choice at its price point, there is only one catch. This phone only comes in one color. A rather loud one at that. The S820 apparently only comes in Flamingo Red.
