Summary: The price tag of Rs 20,899 puts it directly in competition with the Grand, which also retails for the same. Between the two, we’d still recommend the Galaxy Grand over the S890. The Lenovo may seem to have an edge by boasting of an IPS display but the fact is, it’s not very good in real world conditions.
Summary: The Lenovo IdeaPhone S890 brings two unique features to the table - a nice cover which works like a smart cover, and a UI that is funky and may appeal to some. It is your run-of-the-mill Android smartphone in terms of other features. It won't run all the video formats but its multitasking capabilities are nice. You can consider this smartphone but there are better options available out there.
Pros: Good display, Smooth multitasking, Crisp text reproduction for reading books, Smart cover
Cons: Lacklustre camera, Skin may not appeal to all, Doesn't support HD MKV and MP4 video files
