Lenovo Sisley S90 Smartphone Not So Sizzling for its Price; Now Available in India

February 5, 2015, By Alex Badinici

Lenovo is following the likes of Xiaomi with their new smartphone Sisley S90. After making its debut sales in its homeland, the Chinese manufacturer is now bringing the smartphone to the Indian markets with a price tag of INR 19,990.

Sisley S90 has been priced above the mid-range segment. But take a run across its hardware specs and it might make you feel that Lenovo could be left behind in the race in this segment.

The only upper hand it holds is with the 64-bit processing technology, but apart from that, Sisley S90 may even fail to match-up with some of the entry-mid level smartphones available in the market under INR 10000.

Packing a display size of 5 inches, it’s hard to believe why Lenovo has failed to induce a Full HD display to a smartphone, which kisses the INR 20 K price range. Instead, they have opted for the 720p display, which certainly won’t be the amusing factor considering the wide range of similar smartphones.

Lenovo has packed the 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 chipset that arrives with a 1.2GHz quad-core processor and an Adreno 306 GPU. The combined effort can indeed assure you a decent performance. Multitasking expectations are also not dumped either, with the 2 GB RAM offering.

However, that’s a spec range we could find in much cheaper smartphones nowadays. For instance, Micromax Yu Yureka comes with a better Snapdragon 615 processor with the same amount of RAM, and for a price half as that of Sisley S90.

Sisley S90 offers an on-board storage of 32 GB, but lacks option for any expansion. The dual-SIM phone is packed with a 13MP rear camera, and an 8MP front-cam. The connectivity features are made rich with the availability of 4G LTE, Bluetooth, NFC features but it takes a dip again with the 2300 mAh battery.

The smartphone could get into direct rivalry with the recently launched Mi4 from Xiaomi, considering the pricing similarity between the two. Another feature it shares with its Chinese counterpart is with its looks, with both of the smartphones said to have its design adopted from iPhone.

Lenovo hasn’t introduced the smartphone to any online retailers and people who want to check it out may visit the website, from where you could also buy the smartphone. The smartphone is available only in a single shade of Graphite Grey.
