Description

The Lenovo S60 offers a 5-inch display with a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels, while the 64-bit, 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 410 should keep everything ticking over nicely. The SoC is allied to a substantial 2GB of RAM, although the 2,150mAh battery capacity is, if anything, a tad lower than that of comparable handsets. The front-facing, 5-megapixel camera is allied to a 13-megapixel rear shooter, and although you only get 8GB of on-board storage, you can readily top it up thanks to the microSD slot. Along with the potential to add more space, you can also slide in a second SIM card with the S60 thanks to its dual-SIM capability.

    • 720 x 1280 pixels
  • Pixel density:

    Pixel density - The pixel density of a display represents the number of pixels over an area of one inch. It’s measured in “pixels per inch”, or ppi. The higher the number, the more detailed and good-looking the display is.

    • 294 ppi
  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.
