Lenovo S860 is a device built for those who wanted a smartphone that go for a lot of miles in terms of battery capacity. It is highlighted with a 4000 mAh battery capacity, quad core processor, an ample amount of RAM at 2 GB, 16 GB of internal storage and a decent 8 / 2 MP of rear and front camera. This phone also has a big 5.3 inches of display and has Android Kitkat on board.

Here's our unboxing and initial impressions!

The accessories included
The package includes:

  • Lenovo S860 phone
  • 2 AMPS USB adapter
  • Micro USB data cable
  • Micro Sim ejector tool
  • USB OTG
  • Stock In Ear Monitors with 3 sizes of eartips

Lenovo S860 offers an ample amount of useful accessories. I loved that they included a 2 amps USB charging to charge this large battery capacity phone faster. It is also one of the rare smartphone package to include a USB OTG cable and 3 sizes of different eartips. The only thing missing is a screen protector.

Overall the build quality of this phone seems to be pretty solid! The brushed aluminum goodness adds a premium feel to the smartphone. The aluminum used here is also not a hairline scratch magnet which is good. However the screen might a screen protector as it seems to be prone to minimal hairline scratches. It's also just quite heavy compared to other smartphones here like the MyPhone Infinity, ZTE Blade Vec 4G and Redmi 1S due to the aluminum body and large battery capacity.

Camera glimpse

It has a decent camera!
Lenovo S860 has a decent optics at 8MP on its rear camera. I'm playing around with it and I'm loving the results so far. The front facing camera is also good too even at just under 2MP. 

Note: I'll post the different sample shots and video recording on the our full review in the coming days.

As of the moment

I think that this is a solidly built phone with decent performance, great battery life and good optics. It could be your multimedia phone buddy while on the go as it has large batter life! It lasted me over a day when it comes to regular usage, music and internet surfing. Oh by the way, this phone can also double as your powerbank. (Just connect the USB OTG included to the phone together with your USB cable)

We'll talk more about its price to performance, display, audio quality, video, camera and features, benchmarks and others in the next few days in our full review article. So watch out for it. :)
