Lenovo S60 video review:
S60 is only 7.7mm thick and weights 128 grams and is listed in Graphite Grey colour. It is loaded with sensors such as accelerometer, ambient light sensor, magnetometer, and proximity sensor.
Now, what’s disappointing is that the device is a lot like the A6000 Plus handset, but costs almost double. For Rs 7499, the 4G enabled A6000 Plus packs a 5-inch HD screen, a 1.2GHz quad core Snapdragon 410 SOC, 2GB RAM, 16GB storage and a 2300mAh battery.
The new Lenovo phone has the same display, processor and RAM, but only 8GB storage and a 2150mAh battery.
