In a market where the leading smartphone makers are still taking a back when making the dual sim smartphones on the similar lines as that of the single sim smartphones, the need for someone to step in and come with some high quality dual sim smartphones is the need of an hour.

So, in the due course of this article we will be going through a detailed tutorial to just check out on whether this has got all the mettle to give a tough to all the similar smartphones.

Specifications & Features:
More Screen, More battery power is the clear message which this smartphone speaks about as this phone has not just got the dual sim speciality but also it has got a 5inched capacitive touch screen along with a super powerful battery of 2250 mAH. There are smart phones available in the market which tries to match the dual sim capability as that of Lenovo’s S880, but unfortunately such phones actually lose out to the brand value and the type of materials used to build the phone.
The overall built quality is very impressive as being a modestly priced smartphone, this one comes with the porcelain smooth finish and also has a thickness of less than 10mm. Also, one more feature is that this phone smartly adjusts the volume as per the noise / quite environment which removes your input to change the volume level.
One such key feature which no one thinks about is the speakers placement, most of the smartphones are have a speaker placement at the back which I guess is the lame way of designing. If you just take an example wherein you want to hear a song and wish to do some other work while listening to music then if you are placing the phone on the table, you will hardly be able to listen to music as speakers will be table ridden. Thinking of this Lenovo placed the speakers smartly to the front, why not after all this phone is dubbed as Idea Phone.
