Are you ready for another quad-core experience? Well, Lenovo takes on its dip on the quad-core category of the latest Android smartphones with the Lenovo LePhone K860 as its entry.
For a quick overview, the Lenovo Lephone K860 is an Android ICS phone that has the Samsung Exynos 4412 Quad Core CPU, 1GB RAM, 8GB ROM, 1280x720pixels AH-IPS 5-inch screen. Let’s review its specs and features a little more.
The Lenovo K860 boasts with its Samsung Exynos 4412 Quad Core CPU clocked at 1.4GHz, similar (or better) to what we have on the Galaxy S3 but benchmark tests purportedly claimed that this Lenovo K860 is able to leave the Samsung’s S3 to dust in terms of the quad-core performance. Matched with that is a Mali-400 MP GPU, hence making this new LePhone another monster of HD gaming and high-quality multimedia entertainment playback.

The Lenovo K860 runs on Android 4.0 ICS out of the box, and is very much expected to have an Android 4.1 JellyBean upgrade in the future. It is a single SIM phone, that is totally unlocked and guaranteed to work on any carriers worldwide. The single SIM slot is a micro-SIM slot. It has 3G/WCDMA network reception.

It has 1GB RAM, more than sufficient enough for anyone’s seamless multi-tasking without the need to worry about RAM optimization as you are unlikely to use up all that 1GB of beefed RAM in normal use. The 8GB ROM gives way to more internal storage memory for the LePhone compared to others that only has 4GB ROM space size. You wont be needing to worry about your phone storage consumption, and good thing is; you can still expand this number with an external SD card that supports up to 32GB maximum storage memory capacity.

The LePhone K860 is proudly slated with a 5-inches multi-touch capacitive screen. It is IPS already, and the other awesome part is; it has 1280×720 pixels of HD resolution. IPS + AH screen equals a real pleasure to the eyes.
The snapper set is also a bit forward compared with other phones, this one has 8.0 megapixels rear camera and a 2.0 megapixels front-facing camera. With that better front snapper, its a guarantee of clearer video calling renders and self-portrait shots.

Another reason why not to hate this Lenovo K860 is its battery capacity rating, the battery of this LePhone is rated at 2250mAh which gives an assurance of longer usage time that may last for a couple of days from a single charge. Seems like Lenovo’s into the track of making their newer devices to have better battery rating, which is a good plus factor.

The bezel lining isn’t too thick at all. The 5.0 size doesnt makes it more of a phablet, but only a monster Android smartphone with a slightly bigger screen compared to those 4.5″ and 4.7″ quad-core Android phones in the market.
