Lenovo S850 is a decent Android phone released back in the year 2014, including a comfortable 5-inches multi-touch capacitive screen, a great performance Quad-Core CPU ticking at 1300 MHz, and two cameras, a 13 mega-pixels back side camera and a 5 megapixels front-facing camera.

Lenovo made this phoneavailable just in 2 color options, pink and white. About its body design materials, the Lenovo S850 is majorly created with Glass. Lenovo made an amazing optimization job making this phone as lightweight as 4.94 ounces. Being just 0.32" thick,this phone is thin and stilized. This phone is only 5.5" long and 2.79" wide, but it manages to hold a 5 inches display.

Lenovo decided to design this cellphone using a MediaTek 6582 system chip, including a fast Quad-Core CPU ticking at 1300 megahertz with 1 GB of RAM memory. To collaborate with graphic calculations, the Lenovo S850 also has an ARM Mali-400 GPU working at 500 MHz. This device counts with aquite big 16 GB internal storage memory and whereas it doesn't have a slot for SD memory cards, it should be enough to store hundreds of applications and games, but it probably wouldn't be enough if you are fan of the heaviest games available nowadays.

This cellphone is equipped with two cameras, a 13 mega-pixels back side camera and a 5 megapixels front camera. Additionally, the camera features flash and auto-focus.

The Lenovo S850 is equipped with a very good 5-inches screen with a 1280 x 720 (HD) resolution, providing this cellphone with a very good image quality. This screen uses IPS LCD capacitive technology, and can detect multi touch gestures.

This cellphone features a medium sized 2000 mAh Li-Polymer non-removable battery that can keep this cellphone running for several hours, although you may find yourself looking for a place to charge it after some heavy usage. This cellphone has an aproximate 13 hours talk time and a 336 hours stand by time according to Lenovo. An issue to consider is that this phone's battery is non-removable so you can't throw it away and buy a new one when it starts to get older, even though having 2000 mAh you will probably replace this cellphone before it becomes an issue.

This device counts with WiFi connectivity (and it can be shared with other devices around, acting as a mobile hotspot), 4G (HSPA+) connection type, which is not as fast as LTE networks or 3G fast internet connection, supported by HSDPA and EDGE technologies. This cellphone has two Micro SIM cards to be able to to work with 2 different phone lines or carriers.

This cellphone also features many interesting features like Bluetooth (3.0), GPS (Global Positioning System), Near Field Communication (NFC) and Radio, and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer and Compass.

Lenovo is offering the Lenovo S850 for around 165 dollars, quite close to other same level cellphones. If you need a device to majorly use social networks and internet browsing, you will definitely be very satisfied with it.
