Lenovo A850 first look

lenovo a850

Hot off the heels of their wildly-successful A820 and its follow-up, the A830, Lenovo just announced their latest Android smartphone a few months ago. Since then, we’ve been following the news and rumours and checking our mailroom every day for signs of the brand-new A850.

We’ve already given the in-depth review treatment to other the Lenovo A789 and the Lenovo A820, its A-series brethren, and they both scored very highly in our in-house tests.

However, the A850 looked to be really taking things to the next level. The screen size has been bumped up to a humongous 5.5″ diagonal and the new MT6582M chipset boasts a quad-core 1.3Ghz CPU. But we wouldn’t know much about the actual device until we got our hands on it.

Luckily, a mysterious looking parcel from China recently turned up at MNC HQ and we quickly made the following unboxing video of the stunning Lenovo A850. Check it out now for all the details and full specs of this phone:

Stay tuned for much more including a full benchmark test of the phone as well as our official review and, if you’re very lucky, some simple-to-follow ROM installation tutorials…

    It would be great with a guide showing how to repartiotion the internal phone storage to gain extra space than the 1GB which is default. It has something to do with editing the /dev/EBR1 and /dev/EBR2 files I believe.

    Any updates as too when you will release the installation guide for ROM. I’m currently using this phone only fix is the memory that can’t be expanded. There so many ROMS out there that claim to have external SD card support but all it does is repartition the internal. It doesn’t allow saving to SD.
