All Metal Shell and 3000mAh Battery on New Lenovo S668T

Lenovo is already in the smartphone business, although we have yet to get one in the U.S. - hopefully, when the Motorola purchase is finalized, we will finally get to see some action outside of China and Asia.  It is a shame, because they design some very nice looking smartphones and they build a high quality device.  One of their latest smartphones is part of the Lenovo S Series, the S668T, not to be confused with the S660 model.  The S668T is positioned to sell to the businessperson with a more elegant all metal design and the backing done in a brushed textured look, slightly curved - much like the HTC One M8.

The IPS display is 4.7-inches, but only of the qHD variety - meaning a 960 x 540 resolution...hardly something to get excited about when 1080p is the norm and 1440p displays are starting to arrive.  It is powered by a MediaTek MTK6582 Quad-Core processor clocked at 1.3GHz with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage and there is no word if there is a microSD card slot to add any more.  It packs an 8MP main camera and a 3MP front-facing camera (FFC) for great video chatting and selfies.  It is gets its power from a 3,000mAh battery and uses their Chi Heng saving technology to increase battery life.  It runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean with Lenovo's VIBE UI on top.  It supports TD-SCDMA / GSM with a Dual SIM Card.  It appears like it has a list price of $275, but has been selling in stores for about $130 - a more than reasonable price.

Lenovo has certainly turned out a nice low-mid range phone based on its specifications, however, it does have a great design to it and would look very comfortable in the board room or in a suit pocket...but 'knock-your-socks-off' specs it does not possess.  Lenovo does know how to make a high-end smartphone, although, most Chinese devices do tend to be lower spec'd that we demand in the U.S.  A company needs to have a broad range of devices - price ranges - in order to compete globally in this market and I do believe that Lenovo is wise enough to realize that they will have to have some high-end devices in order to compete over here - they can design a killer looking device, now they just need the insides to match the outside.  I look forward to what they produce as owners of Motorola.
