shots. The stock filters and shooting modes enable us to click some decent photos. The camera is certainly not the best for phones in this price range. The Video capture is up to mark but the 0.3 MP front camera is a bit putting off and reminds us of 90's webcam quality photos.

Storage: The phone comes with a 8 GB internal memory of which close to 6 GB is available for the user. The expandable memory upto 32 GB ensures that all there is enough room for all your games, apps and pictures.

Software: The Lenovo interface leaves much to be desired, though there is no cluttering of icons on the home screen the device comes pre-installed with UCBrowser, Evernote and and the basic set of Lenovo's PC manager apps. There is an update available for the stock 4.2.2 version of Jelly Bean.

Battery: Lenovo has packed this model with a massive 3000 mAh user replaceable battery and can easily last a day even with heavy usage. The battery makes a strong case for anyone to consider this phone.

Verdict: The Lenovo S660 is a well built phone and offers a lot for its Rs 11900 price tag. Though the stock UI isn't all that great installing a launcher will have you sorted. The FM radio, a pretty modest camera and a sturdy build make this one of the best phones in its range, only competitors being Micromax and other Indian manufacturers. The only international manufacturer that can compete with the S660 is the Panasonic P11, which loses out on battery power. This is a phone that offers a lot for its modest price tag.
