For a handset that should retail at just $349 unlocked, the Lenovo S860's IPS 5.3-inch screen has a solid 1,280x720-pixel HD resolution. It was just hi-res enough to make text easy to read.
To get the full experience of the display, you can choose from one of several themes.
We don't love the S860 has a fairly old version of Android (4.2 Jelly Bean). Lenovo says it will get an update to 4.4 KitKat at some point, but we have no idea as to when that will be. Also disappointing is the lack of support for LTE.
As with any Android phone, there are three touch controls just below the display for maneuvering through the menus. The icons are a bit small, but that's a nitpick.
You can take a selfie with the 1.6-megapixel front-facing camera above the display.
Of course, the 8-megapixel camera and a small flash are around back.
The battery cover has a smooth and shiny brushed metal design. Remove the cover to see the massive 4,000mAh battery, which promises a whopping 24 hours of 3G talk time, or 43 hours on 2G.
Flip the S860 on its side to see a volume rocker and the power control.
On the S860's bottom end are a speaker and a Micro-USB port.
The speaker sits off to the side of the charger port.
