Design and Body
Design or rather formation is one of the selling points of the Lenovo S920 , because this phone has dimensions of 154 x 77.7 x 7.9 mm and weighs 159 grams , which although large and wide but fairly thin . The entire body is made of glossy plastic . When viewed from the back of the phone has a back design similar to the HTC One X with a circle at the top of the camera .
The face filled with the earpiece , light and proximity sensor , notification LED , front camera , 5.3 - inch display and three function keys Android and mic . The back filled with a mic , main camera , LED flash , and speaker . Two SIM card slot and microSD card slot behind the back cover there .
The left side of the phone there is a volume button , to the right side looks plain . For the top there is a 3.5mm headset port , the lock / power , and a microUSB port covered with a flap , while the bottom looks plain . According to our mobile jumbo size as the S920 placement of the lock / power would be better if it was on the left side of the phone because it is easier to reach with the fingers , especially the button on the S920 feels less obtrusive .
S920 uses a 720p HD resolution display with 5.3 - inch size and 277 ppi pixel depth . The quality is fairly good with the look sharp and colors are bright . Characteristics only drawback is a little redness . For under the sun can be overcome with a good screen , first there is a light sensor to automatically adjust the screen so the information if it is set to automatic mode .
S920 interface interface following the latest high-end phones such as the Lenovo K900 . S920 also runs on the Android 4.2 Jellybean . If Teknokerz already know or even ever use the Lenovo phone , you surely know that the interface Lenovo has a lot of customization of themes , effects , icons , wallpaper video, and more . Since it uses Android 4.2 on the lockscreen you can put widgets . Unfortunately slider lockscreen shortcuts just do not have to unlock the screen only.
Sign in to your homescreen supplied 9 homescreen maximum you can put widgets , shortcuts , folders , and more . You can use the video to be an ornamental wallpaper homescreen pages . There are also customization as the theme , transition effects , decoration icons , and more . Icon in the apps drawer arranged in a 5 x 4 with the formation of a considerable size and within each other . You can adjust the position of each icon either manually or specific categories . Notification window comes with a toggle connectivity options , settings , and activation of several features . There is also a shortcut to the settings menu . Lenovo provides several features such as sensors and gestures Pocket mode that automatically increase the ringtone volume if it is in the bag , Decrease tone which automatically lowers the volume when the phone is held , and Smart roll to change the screen layout by performing gestures .
Typing affairs , the default condition Lenovo S920 only provide standard Android keyboard that offers basic features . Due to the large size of the screen while typing would be more comfortable if done with two hands . The keyboard layout is also better because of the effects of a large screen .
Contacts and Messaging
Contacts present to-the -point with straight outlines the name and contact phone number available . Where you can also change the display to groups , contacts , or favorites . To facilitate the search there is also the alphabetical search bar on the right as well .
Contacts and Messaging menu actually be the only difference in the highlights tab when entering incoming first application . Messaging comes standard with Android just chat thread showing on the home page , sorting the display ( all , contacts , strangers , unread and favorite ) . SMS editor display is also standard , as this phone supports two SIM cards at once then there are two buttons Send appropriate SIM card which one to use .
S920 is equipped with 8MP resolution camera on the back and 2MP on the front . This camera has a setting that is quite complete and interesting features such as HDR , Face Beauty , Panorama , MAV , and others . Indeed, the features and settings that are provided are not complete as K900 , but at least it was more than enough for everyday use .
Indoor shots using the main camera S920 looks less focus despite the low light noise and natural color . For outdoor looks quite detailed with natural coloring but slightly darker / less bright . The original results can be downloaded here .
Camera and video recording interface into one just separated the decision . With the 8MP camera of course you can take video with a resolution up to 1080p FullHD be saved in 3GP format , which become two sides of a coin because despite its size being not too memory consuming but the quality is not as good as MP4 format . A captured video with this camera is fairly sharp , with support touch focus while recording . When recording video at the same time you can also take pictures with a resolution in accordance with the size of the video .
Gallery displays photos and video content that is , by way of simple applications like stock Android Gallery . You can see a collection of photos by folder , location , or time taken. On the top right terdpaat also quick access to the camera . There is also the edit menu to apply the filter , frame , mirror , rotate , and more .
To be able to listen to music , you can use the default Android Music Play application , because S920 does not provide a dedicated application . Display and features like the Play Music app on other devices , such as album art of the currently playing song is displayed . There is also the sound output setting equalizer with manual adjustment or preset . Good sound quality via the headset , while the loudspeaker sounded tight but less clear .
Besides the video content can be played through the gallery , can also be played on dedicated application . Video application interface remains simple look , with a split between the two tabs video content from video cameras and other video phone . There are settings when playing video aspect ratio , brightness , take screen shots , and the lock screen ( so as not to touch the untouchable - when the video is playing ) . This video player can play videos in various formats such as MP4 , M4V , FLV , AVI , MKV to HD resolution but without subtitle support .
There is also entertainment features in addition to classic FM radio where the standard features such as auto engines , sleep mode , and recording , you are not required to plug in headset first because there are already built -in antenna .
