Both are great products and will be loved by millions and millions. Lenovo S920 vs Samsung Galaxy Note 2 specs and price comparison makes interesting reading

Samsung Galaxy Note is a product that has seen numerous copycats to be produced. Phablets at first were abhorred and laughed at when launched for the first time by Korean tech giant around one and half years ago in the form of first generation Galaxy Note. Since then we have seen numerous products being launched in the market one after the other and there are now phablets as big as 6.1 inch introduced in the market by Chinese tech giant Huawei. But apparently Huawei is not the only smart-phone manufacturer that is launching huge sized phablets. There are others in the market like Lenovo that too have come up with similar products that can give them a kick-start in the smart-phone market.

To be true, Lenovo S920 is a very exciting product that may give Korean tech giant Samsung’s highest selling phablet Galaxy S2 a run for its money. The tablet comes with a bit smaller display, but its quality is amazingly better than Galaxy note 2 though the difference may not be noticeable to naked eyes.

So in every sense Lenovo S920 seems a worthy competitor for Galaxy Note 2. As far as display is concerned, Lenovo phablet comes with a 5.3-inch display than the 5.5-inch display of the Note 2. Both the screens have the same 720 x 1280-pixel resolution at 720 x 1280 pixels. But, carrying a tiny screen, the S920 is more dense in pixels at 277-ppi, where the Samsung device touts a little better 267-ppi. The Note 2 also shows off Corning’s Gorilla Glass 2 and an interesting interface the TouchWiz UI.

To what extent the processor’s power is concerned, the newly announced Lenovo device is not much attractive in its processor. It gets power from a moderate 1.2GHz MTK 6589 quad core CPU and 1GB of RAM. Analysts are of the view that these are not enough for the device to beat the Samsung rival, which is powered by a 1.6GHz quad core Cortex-A9 processor with Exynos 4412 Quad chip, 2GB of RAM and a Mali-400MP GPU. Of course, the Note 2 is superbly powerful than the Lenovo competitor. In order to put the price down, Lenovo has included only 4GB of internal memory inside its new phablet. Plus, it has a microSD slot to let you expand memory up to 32GB thanks to external memory sticks. It is when Samsung’s Note 2 is available in all standard memory variants like the 16GB, 32GB and 64GB. Further, it has a microSD slot that will let you insert microSD cards up to 64GB.

In one aspect Lenovo’s phablet beats Galaxy Note 2. It is nice that Lenovo is to roll out its new phablet with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean out of the box. Of course, along with its lower price tag, it will be the major point of attraction of the gadget. The second edition Galaxy Note, however, came to market with Android 4.1 and it is yet to get updated to the Android 4.2. Maybe, it will soon get the 4.2 update, and it is also upgradeable to the imminent Android 5.0, reports say.

Both the handsets come with great camera. They also offer all key camera features including autofocus, LED flash, geo-tagging and a lot more. The Note 2’s camera features simultaneous HD video and image recording as well. The Lenovo phone has 2MP front camera, while the Note 2 has a 1.9MP front camera for video chat and self-portraits. Soon after its official announcement, Lenovo has put its new phablet for pre-order in China for 799 Yuan. It is a price that is almost equal to around $150 in the U.S. Indeed, this low price factor is the major identity of the Lenovo phone. It is when you can buy a unit of Galaxy Note 2 SIM free for a price above $600. Of course, this is what makes the Lenovo S920 a severe rival to the Lenovo machine. So if you haven’t got a Galaxy Note 2 you can get a great handset with a fraction of the price.
