One of the most beautiful smartphones Chinese company Lenovo. Model, in which case a lot of glass, the logo on the back panel is highlighted, and the pattern here resembles the texture of denim. However, this unit is not only curious about it.
Packaging and delivery – Lenovo S850
The box that comes Lenovo S850, made in terms of branded products: the red part where myself and is a smartphone, plus the necessary accessories, and white with a gray cover. Examining the latter, you can see a picture of the tube, a few footnotes about key features of the “smart” phone, as well as the model name, manufacturer information about the country and so forth.
Its designation is on the bottom wall of the red portion of the package. However, in my opinion, is too interesting to the user, they will not be – purely technical information designed to increase distribution.
After opening the box, in addition to the smartphone user to ‘discover’ the charging adapter, massive micro- USB -cable, as well as high-quality wired headset required documentation plus a clip that provides access to the trays SIM-cards. The latter, incidentally, are equipped very unusual. But talk about this in more detail below.
Appearance and Customization – Lenovo S850
Perhaps it is not wrong if I say that Lenovo S850 – the most beautiful smartphone eponymous producer. Oh, at least those with whom I have a “sign” in person. Glass front and rear body, two-edging around the perimeter, beautifully iridescent pattern on the rear panel, which, incidentally, already dubbed as a style “under jeans,” and even backlit during charging, or unlock the manufacturer’s logo. In short, companies are trying to do everything to Lenovo brand as quickly as possible ceased to be associated with cheap and “lifeless” smartphones. And the S850 in terms of design a prime example!
To build quality claims also to be found. The secret here is simple – molded body format. Simply put, access to the battery you do not have.
What else like it – use the protective glass on the front and back panels. This manufacturer “raised» S850 above even the same Sony Xperia Z1 Compact (review here ). The latter, as we remember, on the back wall was only “tsarapuchy” plastic. The user can not be afraid for the appearance here soon scratches or scuffs. The only thing that “sin” as the front panel and the back part of it – it’s fingerprints and thick oily stains. However, “clean” and the first and second special is not working.
Ergonomics functional elements – Lenovo S850

Looking around the right side face is easy to see the power button on / off and volume rocker sound.
The opposite of remarkable conclusion grid speakerphone, trays SIM-cards. By the way, with the latest from Lenovo got interesting – both slots «SIM-ok” to each other and aligned in the end user on the outside of the case sees access to only one of them. However, it should only take out the tray, in reality, it is found that both “left” both because they are “connected” one design. Whatever you say, but it looks quite unusual and at the same time it is convenient in terms of ergonomics.
At the top end port equip micro-USB, as well as the classical derivation of 3.5 mm.
Finally, looking at the lower bound, the user has noticed a miniature output built-in microphone.

The screen has a decent anti-glare properties and highly performed well while working in bright sunlight – ‘extinction’ insignificant flowers.

Problems with the latter I did not have corresponding sensor is triggered correctly.
Staying in the associated sub-settings, the user can work with the indicator events, adjust brightness, activate or disable the “Screen Rotation” and use such an option as “Inversion LCD.” Last makes dark background, and displayed on it the letters white – quite convenient solution for eyes at night.

The device has two separate chambers – the main 13 megapixel and 5 megapixel front.
Despite the fact that the latter did not get autofocus in good light conditions, the user can rely on the good quality of the self.
But the main 13 megapixel camera “equipped with” flash and autofocus system for a photo. There is also a considerable number of different settings. But the focus during video recording is not available.
Conclusions – Lenovo S850
Well, this phone Lenovo S850 is quite a considerable amount of “things” that can distinguish it from the competition. But the main thing – it’s design. In this regard, the model turned “on its head” above the many decisions of Korean, Japanese and Chinese brands that felt from the very first minutes of the meeting. The only thing that did not like me personally – the inability to extend the built-in memory, even connecting the USB-drive. How big is this “fee” for the opportunity to own the “glass” is quite a decent smartphone with “iron”, will leave every reader decide.
