Complete set, appearance of the device and ergonomics
Rather modest equipment for a device of this class. It consists of the following components and accessories:
- Actually, the smartphone itself.
- Battery with a nominal capacity of 2 thousand milliampere / hour.
- Cord format YUSB / microUSB.
Stereo headset, protective film and case will havefor him to buy separately. Only two types of color design currently exist: gray and gold. The latest version of the Lenovo S8 GOLD is most in demand.

The Mali-450MP4 graphics adapter complements this CPU. Of course, there are not enough stars from the sky, but for comfortable launch of most applications, its hardware resources are enough. The main camera is based on a 13 megapixel matrix. It is equipped with almost everything possible. What is missing is the automatic image stabilization system.

Battery and its capabilities
Reasonably modest battery for 2 thousandmilliamps / hours for Lenovo GOLDEN WARRIOR S8. Reviews indicate that one charge is enough for a day, a maximum of two. In reality, the battery capacity should be 2 times more. And so, the processor with 8 cores and a screen with a diagonal of 5.3 inches “eat up” this battery very quickly. The problem can be solved by connecting an external battery to the MicroUSB port, but this is not an elegant solution for such a stylish device.
Lenovo S8 functions under controlpopular operating system for smartphones - "Android". Currently, its firmware is based on version 4.2.2.

Everything in this smartphone is: a fast multi-core CPU, a powerful graphics adapter, a large amount of memory and a large screen diagonal. Minuses, in turn, he has 2. The first of them - a modest grade. But if desired, and the availability of additional material resources, this question can be solved.
