Lenovo has introduced the S880 with a dual SIM in the mid-range segment. The Lenovo S880 is shielded in a rigid frame with an appealing exterior carving decked in a pristine white polish. One interesting feature of the phone is the fingerprint resistant feature. On the front, the phone is designed with a 5-inch TFT capacitive display with a resolution of 480x800. The unappealing feature of this phone is the text and icons appear large. The phone has a dimension of 9.9mm and weighs 196g.
On the right side of the phone is fitted with volume rocker along with microUSB, headphone jack and power/sleep buttons on top. The rear panel is designed with a tender plastic cover that can wear off easily. There are two SIM compartments (3G+2G) underneath and a microSD card slot. A 2250mAh battery occupies the remaining space.
The Lenovo S880 is offered in 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich with Lenovo logo on top. The feature that has been modified is the launcher, which is IdeaPad K1 tablet and there are toggle switches in the notifications bar for quick access. The smooth functioning of the UI is contributed by the 512MB of RAM and 1GHz single-core CPU from MediaTek. The S880 has an initial memory capacity of 4GB and there is space for microSD card slot. The problem here is the user will have to remove the battery to insert the microSD card slot.
The media playback in the Lenovo S880 is handled through the stock player that supports MP3, WAV, WMA, eAAC+, MP4, WMV, H.264 and H.263. There is also an option for lyrics which is showcases when the file is introduced in the same folder. The audio quality is impressive with a pair of IEMs. The speaker volume is of decent quality and notifications and alerts are audible even in noisy environments. An FM transmitter and internal antenna is offered with the FM radio package which implies that the user can attach the audio from phone directly to the car.
