We have a clue that you’re looking for a big, massive, giant phone which has a lot to offer and its price is accessible. This is why we’re trying to help you find the right phablet and we have two suggestions for you: the G Vista from LG, and the Lenovo S860, which seems to have a faster processor and a longer battery lifetime.
Displays and sizes
Here’s another phablet with a premium look, which can be used not only to watch movies and play games, but to read e-books as well, because the 5.7inches IPS LCD offers a good color reproduction. The resolution is fixed at 720x1280pixels, and the pixel density stands at 258ppi, which is above average, and the screen has TBC protection. The phone weights 168grams and its dimensions are 152.1×79.2×9.1mm.
The Lenovo S860 comes with a 5.3inches IPS LCD screen with the same resolution, but a higher pixel density – 277ppi. This phone isn’t light, so it’s not for everybody, because it weights 190grams, it’s thick – 10.3mm, it measures 149.5mm in length and 77mm in width.
Hardware and OS
The G Vista has a quad core 1,2GHz Cortex A7 processor which runs decently, it’s supported by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 chipset and has an Adreno 305 GPU to complete the team. The internal memory is 8GB, expandable up to 32GB and the phone runs on Android v4.4.2 (KitKat) with 1.5GB of RAM.
As for the Lenovo S860, the phone is powered by a quad core 1.3GHz processor, based on a Mediatek MT6582 chipset and uses a Mali-400MP2 GPU. It has 16GB of internal storage, but it’s unexpandable, though it compensates with those 2GB of RAM which help the operating system – Android v4.2 (Jelly Bean), which is upgradable to v4.4.2 (KitKat), to run smoothly.
Both phablets have 8MP rear cameras with similar features: LED flash, geo tagging, face detection, touch focus, HDR. However, the G Vista has laser autofocus, and its opponent has a simple autofocus feature. The secondary camera on the LG phone is 1.3MP, which is slightly weaker than Lenovo’s 1.6MP front camera.
The G Vista has a Li-Ion 3200mAh battery which provides an average talk time of 12hours on 3G. The Lenovo S860 has a non-removable Li-Po 4000mAh battery with which you can talk 24hours on 3G.
The LG G Vista costs around 435 dollars and the Lenovo S860 is priced at 323 dollars.
