Lenovo S820 specs review
The midrange Lenovo S820 is the phone for you if you're a performance-hungry user. With a powerful quad-core processor paired with a gig of RAM, heavy-graphic games won't be a problem. Watching movies and series would also be great, thanks to the large 4.7" screen. Also, it's running 4.2 Jellybean, so you should expect lag-free and buttery smooth transitions.

Shots should be nice with the 12MP camera paired with an LED flash, but we would have to test that to know. The 2MP front camera should also do well with video chats.

The battery should suffice a day if you're a medium to heavy user.
