Expert Opinion

Lenovo S5 Pro addresses the issues of S5 and comes with high performance and design, but the ‘idol selfie’ feature can capture hearts.

Display

Lenovo S5 Pro has a 6.2-inch screen with a resolution of 2246×1080 and a maximum brightness of 600 nits. The brightness is quite high and would not pose many problems if you go outside with this phone; however, harsh sunlight may cause a few visibility issues. It has the controversial notch which can be either a style statement or an annoyance depending taste of the user. However, the body-to-screen ratio is quite good with enough screen space to work with. It has a 113% SRGB colour gamut. Thus, it can produce vivid colours and clear pictures without a problem. The viewing angles are great as well, without any dulling of colours when the phone is tilted.

Design

Lenovo S5 Pro comes with a metal build. It is heavier than Lenovo S5 at 170 grams but a bit thinner than its flagship rivals at 7.7mm. The surface uses the fine 205 zircon sand which gives it a delicate touch but also assures durability. The design looks similar to the iPhone X models, but the lower frame is more prominent in this model. It does attract fingerprint smudges on its back, and if it does, the phone design is constructed in a way that it can easily be wiped off. The phone does not dig into the palms due to its rounded edges and is quite comfortable to hold. Plus, it is not quite as slippery and looks sturdy due to the metal frame. The fingerprint scanner is at the back-centre of the phone and is easy to reach.

Performance

Lenovo S5 Pro has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 processor which is coupled with 6GB of RAM. It registered 112851 points in benchmarks which is the average level that 636 chipsets registers. As a mid-tier processor, it works well and does not have a problem while multitasking. However, it can start to lag if multiple tabs are opened on Google Chrome. Light games can run smoothly on this phone, but heavy games will have noticeable frame drops. On the other hands, the phone runs quite smoothly when ordinary apps are running on it. Hence, the phone performs well if it is not pushed.

Camera

Lenovo S5 Pro has four cameras. There are a 20MP and 12MP rear camera set with AI integration. It is a rare set which comes with Sony’s 2x optical zoom at this affordable price range. As per photography is concerned, the camera can produce neat photos. The 20MP camera has ‘AI super-quality zoom’ which can give more clear pictures even when zoomed in. It also has a 9-level depth of field real-time adjustment which can help to shoot quality images with the featured ‘Portrait AI super picture quality’. The details are increased by 1000%. Even the AI scene detection works accurately and can produce brilliant pictures. The colours appear vivid, and the captured details are quite accurate.

 

Even in low-light, the cameras perform well, due to the presence of the AI that sets the scene mode quite accurately and lights up the image.  

 

On the front, there is a pair of cameras – 20MP and 8MP which produces neat bokeh selfies. It has a wonderful beauty mode which removes wrinkles, problems with the angles of light and in the process, presents a great selfie. The bokeh is also quite accurate and does not blur the face. It also supports features like 3D natural beauty makeup, 3D appearance repair, and 3D beauty all of which makes the selfie look more relaxed and achieve an ‘idol selfie’ which does not look quite aggressive as most phones make it.

Battery

Lenovo S5 Pro has a massive 3500mAh which come with 18W fast charging support. The battery is a bit large, and so it adds to the weight of the phone, but that is all right since you get a reliable juice-pack. It promises to deliver a whole-day of run time and fast charge to get it back into adequate power within an hour.

Verdict

Lenovo S5 Pro has come as a ‘camera phone’, and it delivers on it. The idol selfie is the selling point and would make any youngster fall in love with the phone. It also arrives with good internals – a great processor, fast-charging battery and a spectacular design. It is a decent phone which is much better than the average Lenovo S5. It can be easily considered as a phone worth buying for any youngster or a person who wants to click their perfect selfies. Realme 2 Pro, its flagship rival, has a fantastic design, and comes with the water-drop notch, against the chunky notch of Lenovo S5, but has cut down on quality cameras to provide a slightly better processor. It is worth considering if you are going for performance and premium display.
