About the Phone
The Lenovo S5 Pro GT may not look great, but it has some mid-range aspects going in well for itself. It has a few pros and cons:
- The phone has a colorful and sharp display which will immerse you in the videos you watch on it.
- Regarding the performance, the Lenovo S5 Pro GT keeps it fast and helps in smooth multitasking.
- The phone has a potent battery which can keep it chugging for an entire day.
- The Lenovo S5 Pro GT has a dull design which looks redundant.
- The phone has a large notch and a thick chin resulting in a cramped up multimedia experience.
- The Lenovo S5 Pro GT cameras have poor low-light performance.
The Lenovo S5 Pro GT stays in its low mid-range zone and does not seek to go out of its zone and try to do something different. It has a good processing speed, but it will not give you any premium feel if you use it. Overall, you get a low mid-range phone with all the mid-range necessities fulfilled in it.
Lenovo S5 Pro GT is Lenovo’s foray into bringing a decent speed and power in the low mid-range market. Priced at Rs. 12,999, the Lenovo S5 Pro GT comes with a Snapdragon 600 series processing that makes multitasking smooth and efficient, twinning it with a decent battery to keep the phone chugging.
While performance and battery are the plus points of this phone, the Lenovo S5 Pro GT stays strictly in the mid-range grounds, arriving with a mediocre camera and unattractive design. If you are seeking a bit of premium touch, then this phone will not make you happy. However, as an emergency mid-range purchase, the Lenovo S5 Pro GT is adequate to keep the essential functions of the phone active and running in blazing fast speed.
The Lenovo S5 Pro GT does not have a striking display which will make it stand out among its competitors. It is not a very glossy read, nor does it come with the gradient design that Honor phones are popular with.
On the rear panel, the phone has a small vertical module along with a fingerprint scanner which is placed at an ergonomic position. The phone has curved edges, which makes it comfortable to hold. Overall, the design on this phone is decent but quite ordinary as can be expected from any mid-range phone of this range.
The phone arrives with a 6.2-inch IPS LCD screen. It has a decent resolution of 1080×2246 and an impressive pixel density of 402 ppi. The phone has a notch which can be distracting for most people, but on the sides, Lenovo has kept the bezels at a minimal. The chin, however, is a bit thick.
The colors on this phone appear quite vibrant, and the indoor brightness is satisfying. However, under harsh sunlight, the display does start to falter.
The Lenovo S5 Pro GT gets its power from the Octa-core Qualcomm SDM660 Snapdragon 660 which is clocked at 2.2 GHz. The processor is twinned with 6GB RAM and a fantastic Adreno 512 GPU which makes the phone run smoothly. If you want to handle multiple apps simultaneously, then this phone can satisfy you.
It can handle intensive tasks and keep them speedy without letting the phone enter a slowdown mode. However, this processor is a mid-range processor, and so, gaming at high setting will result in noticeable frame drops. It is not a gaming model, so if you are a gamer, then this phone is not suitable for you.
Lenovo S5 Pro GT arrives with a Dual camera in the front and the back. On the front face, the phone comes with a 20MP primary lens and a supporting 8 MP camera. It can click decent selfies along with suitable portraits. The bokeh effect is satisfactory though the edge detection is not entirely accurate.
On the rear, the phone has a 12 and 20 MP Dual camera setup. The daylight shots are quite decent with the color being mostly accurate. However, low-light shots plummet and capture a lot of visual noise. Video shooting maxes out at 2160p which can be shot at 30fps.
The Lenovo S5 Pro GT has a 3500 mAh battery which has adequate fuel in it to keep chugging it for a whole day with moderate tasks, and the phone can last an entire day till night. However, intensive tasks can result in a rapid drainage of battery juice.
As a mid-range phone, the Lenovo S5 Pro GT does not really stand out. It does have its good points – a decent mid-range processor as well as a potent battery fueling the phone up. However, the S5 Pro GT does not have an attractive design, nor does its cameras do anything outstanding to surprise you.
However, as a handset, it is accomplished enough to please the mid-range crowd and hence, it an instant recommendation. There are better alternatives in the market too, though, regarding processing, this phone holds up well.
