Mr. Ajmera's Review (A business user)

The Lenovo S850 is really recommended for any user who relates to my idea of having a balance between a large enough easy-to-use keyboard and overall small enough for fit snugly in your pockets. I more than often go for efficient devices like the as it present me with a robust call management; as I am hardly ever off my phone. Bluetooth in my smartphone is essential more for hands-free calling than file sharing. I am mostly traveling around and even if it is in known streets, I prefer having my GPS navigation guiding me along, in case of traffic or diversions.

Mrs. Iyer's Review (A homemaker)

It easily fits in my hands and I can carry it with ease; however the typing is a bit uncomfortable. I like enlarging the images and text on the screen, which I do quite often, using my fingers instead of fidgeting with the settings and multi-touch on this phone allows me to do it. I don't like the camera in particular, and I won't be buying the Lenovo S850, however good the other features might be.

Ishan's Review (A geek)

I am so hooked with the immersive gaming and reading experience offered by the large and vivid display of this smartphone. I definitely need a multi-touch screen to zoom in or out on the gaming action and even flick the ebook pages. Gaming on the Lenovo S850 with 1.3 GHz is decently fluid, not that exciting though; for the long haul however, I would recommend a higher frequency for gaming. My games load way faster in quad-core and deliver an overall smooth performance; add increased clock speed to this and you get a real deal. Not just multi-tasking, but running heavier games and apps simultaneously is breeze with 1 GB RAM. The Lenovo S850 with the 16 GB internal storage really talks to me; it understands my storage needs when it comes to my ebook and gaming collection.

Prachi's Review (A social butterfly)

For me the 5 inches display is the first thing I noticed in the Lenovo S850. I think Lenovo S850 has an absolutely cool screen size. It fits well in my denim pockets and I can type with one hand. Not that bad for viewing videos either, but I like to view videos on larger screens. I can zoom in or zoom out images with pinching movements of my fingers on the screen of the Lenovo S850. And flick my fingers to rotate images or turn pages of ebook; that's why the Multi-Touch technology is really nice. Yes, 13 MP is not that great camera resolution. There are so many smartphones with better megapixels sometimes even cheaper than this phone. I love clicking pictures with my smartphone and this one doesn't seem up for it. I can't imagine my smartphone without the secondary camera. I and my friends simply love the selfies and groupies and click hundreds of them. It's too much effort to do it with the main camera, so having a cool front camera is much better; it is more fun to have front camera with higher megapixels. My smartphone should do a lot of things simultaneously and not just basic messaging, emails and browsing. And the 2G network is too slow to do anything more than that. I can now travel to almost any new place or location with the built-in GPS and it is great help during various emergencies, traffic updates or navigation issues. With the 16 GB internal storage I have to choose between which music, movies, videos and images to keep or delete from my phone. I hate to do that and hence don't like phones with average internal memory; a bigger storage is more of my style.
