Features

When other Smartphone uses Qualcomm Snapdragon for it chipset, but Lenovo bravely uses Intel Atom Z2580 as its processor, that is why people becomes curious about the advantage of this steps to Lenovo phone. Surely Atom has been known to give speed to most laptop or desktop PC, which is why people also hope that they would get super speed for this phone version.

The support from Intel for Lenovo is really high since we could see their logo place big in the phones packaged and the back body of the phones itself. Moreover when you turn on the phones you would notice the logo appears first before Lenovo logo itself. Even though Lenovo uses it as marketing tools but it has been proved that Lenovo would not disappoint you in their speed performance. You could use it to play your game in highest graphic scale without worry. They would not be lag or hang during your game so you would get maximum gaming experience.

Moreover this chipset is design so you could do multitasking to run a lot of application at once, which is very important feature for Android phones since there would be a lot of application that runs on the background.

Design and Size

From outside you could see that Lenovo gift their K900 all black color surface that made from unibody metal material created from the combination of polycarbonate and stainless steel alloy. But you should not have to worry since they only have 162 gram weight with very thin measurement of 6.99 mm. this makes the phones looked luxurious especially with its sharp edge. They use 5.5 inch design which very popular design that most Smartphone manufacturer use today so most of us would not feel surprise or feel weird when using it. Corning Gorilla Glass 2, which is very though material, protects the surface but also sensitive so you could touch it using pen or your fingers.

Storage

Unlike other device they put the power right above the micro SIM slot on the right side of the phones while the volume button is on the left side. On the bottom side they have a microphone, which paired with headphone jack and micro USB port. Second microphone could be found in the back side of the phone side by side with dual LED flash.

The speaker is placed on the back of the phone, sadly makes the sound does not hear properly when you place the phone on the table. Another disadvantage that we see on Lenovo K900 review is that there is no microSD slot available; to cope with this problem USB on the go has been added.

The metal material used to create the body is stainless steel alloy that makes the phone looked glamorous, however this material also makes the phones feels burning even when you only used it for one hour. This also caused because the phone use big power, to cope with this problem you might want to use phone case which will protect your fingers.

Display

This K900 has already use IPS LCD which comes in High definition so it could show sharp and clean image on your phone. Moreover the pixel density has already reach 401 ppi that would be very useful for your gaming experience. Especially, since they design their own interface, which makes it different from other Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean phones. With this you could change the size and appearance of icons inside your phones. You could even change the color of the text and how the application transition displayed. But you should not have to worry since all android application also available in the phone including Google Play.Lenovo K900 Review

During screen lock you could still use it to call, send text message, and see picture menu. You would get UC browser who really useful for your browsing experience, SuperCamera to make sure you could take picture easily, SuperGallery for easy access on your gallery, and Kingsoft Officer preinstalled inside the K900.

Camera

The SuperCamera application offers many kinds of feature that you could create many kinds of filters using many kinds of effect on the color and lens with addition of magic effect. You could also arrange the sharpness of the resolution with 1080 pixel High Definition for video and 13 Megapixel for the rear camera. You will also get front camera with 2 megapixel sharpness, which you could use for video chat and taking selfies.

Audio

The audio support for K900 is enough so you could get phone calls for long as you like without worry. You will also get Bluetooth and WIFI for connectivity access beside the 3G/HSDA+ one; sadly there is no NFC in this phone yet. For the battery you will get 2.500mAh capacity, which could stand on for around 10 hours if you do not use it to play games, or watch movies for hours. And to safe the battery Lenovo has add feature that will turn of several phone applications when the power has reach 20 percent left. However you could still organize the battery use since the application offer complete feature for example you could turn of the data connection on certain time.

Final Words

For overall Lenovo K900 is great since you could get high performance that you could only get from other high end Smartphone but since this K900 comes with most affordable price and then most people would get the advantage from it.
