Lenovo S660 Review – The Budget Phone
The Phone kept at budget price has more competition these days and so as the Lenovo S660 which comes perfectly at that category. Lenovo has a wide range of products in India and I think Lenovo S660 would be the cheapest one at this category. We were lucky enough to review and completely test the Lenovo S660 for you and yeah a pretty good phone.

Build of Lenovo S660
The Build of Lenovo S660 is What other phones would hardly provide at that budget. The Back was made of perfect metal I thought its plastic with metal feel, but when I opened it for battery I was an actual metal, the single antenna over the side made of metal the device feel way beyond premium than all others. At frint clear Back Screen Lenovo Logo at top with Ear Piece just above it and Glowing Ambient Light looks perfect with Front Camera, At bottom there are buttons which are always present in an Android Phone.The Back has Lenovo Logo too With Camera at top with Flash and Noise cancelling mic with Speakers at bottom. There was one more thing which I loved the most was the Magic Cover. It re-invented the Scale which I remember in Olden day when we hit on wrist it use to acts as wrist band. The magic cover would definately make you feek cool in your friend circle.
Camera of Lenovo 660
The camera is pretty good both a normal light and low light condition. The picture quality was decent and completely good according the price point its been sold at. There are almost all phones at this budget which shoots 720p video , The Camera shooting is quiet perfect which I think other phones lag at this budget but yeah competely thumbs up to the camera.
Software Of Lenovo S660
The Software Looks to be half cooked Operating System means I had used All the Lenovo Phones here in the case they just have imported the launcher , and icons not the other apps Like Gallery which always open to stock, same with camera, same with lockscreen other Lenovo phones has a completely Polished OS like the MiUi. Well maybe they did this due to the price point and no words yet regarding the Kitkat update which is again a disappointment, the kitkat would not be seen due to some mediatek driver issue but lenovo S860, did had a kitkat update which also use to run mediatek processor. Well if you talk of benchmarks the Antutu scored about 17,000 points in benchmark while nenamark2 scored 63.9 fps.
To look at all the things of Lenovo S660 I am pretty much disappointed with the experince of device I think lenovo’s other phones like Vibe Z, S860 were far more better in terms of that. Also no future updates news would disappoint the customer too after buying Also its been crushed by the better alternatives too in the market. Not so worthy phone to go for.
