Both come with massive display and great specifications. Samsung Galaxy Note 2 vs Lenovo S920 Specs, features comparison makes interesting reading

The Chinese computer firm Lenovo has introduced a Samsung Galaxy Note 2 rival namely the Lenovo S920. This is a 5.3-inch phablet with HD display and a quad core processor. Going through its specs and possible price tag, you can simply find this phone as a big threat to Galaxy Note 2, especially in China and many emerging markets. Lenovo is likely to ship the phone in China at its initial stage for a price that is equivalent to nearly $150.

Here we place the new Lenovo handset in a comparison with Samsung’s Galaxy Note 2 phablet. In terms of price and software, the Lenovo device is highly competitive to the Note 2, but it is an underdog in some other essential aspects like processor, display perfection and more. Below you can enjoy the Lenovo S920 Vs Samsung Galaxy Note 2 comparison.

Display: The 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.

Processor: 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.

Storage: 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.

Software: 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.

Camera: Both the devices have 8MP rear cameras. 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.

Price, Availability: 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.
