S650 display is clearly superior over A850. Brighter, more accurate in colour and better view angle.

Btw MT6582 pack a Mali400 MP2 @ 500mhz, not PowerVR 544 as listed in GSMarena.

Not sure about performance advantage over PowerVR 544 @ 384mhz in MT6589T, but surely play 1080p videos without hiccup. biggrin.gif

Sorry to ask, does the softkeys of S650 have backlight?

Using A850 now and the softkeys doesn't have backlight...

Is the battery removable also like A850?

Finally, can we install app into SD card out from the box or only limited to install in internal storage...

There's softkeys backlight on S650.

The 2000mAh battery is removable like A850.

Default write disk can be set to SD card unlike A850.

The lenovo official announcement
2014.2.17
近期VIBE ROM团队将会为已适配机型带来Android版本更新:

1、 哪些手机会获得此次更新,升级到的目标Android版本是多少。
已适配VIBE ROM的机型会获得此次更新;因芯片平台的不同,不同机型获取到的Android版本更新也不相同,详见附 表。

2、 升级后使用上会有哪些变化
Android版本升级后使用体验上不会有显著变化。

3、 此次升级后,VIBE ROM的后续升级计划
基于Android 4.4的VIBE ROM会命名为VIBE ROM1.5,后续VIBE ROM的更新基于VIBE ROM1.5,此次升级后,VIBE ROM 1.0将停止新功能导入。

4、 为什么不是所有机型都升级到VIBE ROM 1.5
VIBE ROM 1.5基于4.4,适配受芯片平台商的支持力度的影响和研发资源的限制,很遗憾未能将所有适配机型升级到V IBE ROM 1.5。

5、 什么时候更新?
部分机型最早从3月份开始提供升级,不同机型升级时间不一样,确切时间请关注论坛公告。

6、 未升级到VIBE ROM 1.5的机型,会开源吗?
正尝试遵循开源协议进行开源,和google的策略一致,不会对安全性造成威胁,发布计划近期会给出,请大 家留意论坛公告。

HI.. To all otai s650. I'm just use s650 for one week. Puzzled about the battery. The situation:
First time use after open box, data on, very light use, my s650 can last up to 2 days. But after charge (full charged), my phone only can last for 1 day with same setting and same usage. So why this happen, is it prob with my charger, or battery, or phone itself. Really appreciate any opinion from u all. Thanks a lot.

try again for another week. make sure you charge full 100%. and recharge back when below 5%. restart the phone after full charge to see the battery meter.

you can try that method too.
anyway lenovo phones have trickle charge. when your battery meter hit full charge, leave it for 5-10minutes before switch off

I just got mine as a temporary phone.
I got the Ori one.
It is quite nice phone with cheap price.
Screen color nice, bright.
Performance good quite responsive and no lag.
It is thin and light weight and the build is quite solid.

Only down side is the back cover is not easy to open. sometime i feel quite scary that it almost wanna break near the phone jack hole!!

There is LED notification light but it is too tiny inside the right end of the top speaker.

In short, it is quite a good phone for low price.

lag because too much background apps. if you just install whatapp and viber, it will be fine
no need anti virus or security app, it will eat more ram

i tested this phone. dont feel really like the camera even though it is 8 mp.

i rather spend more abit and get better one like samsung or moto or xperia.

you can also consider huawer P2. RM999. tongue.gif promotion now.

well.. what is your main activity for the new phone ? games ? browsing ? facebook or jus casual chat ?

My daughter bought this S650 yesterday at RM550, I believe it's an AP set. So far so good with good exception of battery usages if take longer hours of game and internet. Ok. since this set supported 3G/HSDPA, enabling the data connection definitely would dried the $$ at the background. In order to receive and make video calls, do we have to switching data connection on?

yup, seems the official rom originated from lenovo china, I should read this one before proceeding http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-Phones/...ng/td-p/1391071

The problem is now USB driver is for windows 7 and not for windows 8.1, I have to look for other device in order to reflash the rom back to where they are.

ok this is what happen when i go to s650 RM399 at Jalan Raja Laut

1) i ask the seller why so cheap - he said he buy in bulk thats why cheaper

2) ask the seller about warranty - he said local warranty and only cover for repair and service .. parts not included ..

3) ask either if warranty claim can send to lenovo authorize dealer like samsung - he said lenovo have no authorised dealer yet in malaysia like Samsung shop .. so better send back to him only but there will be charges.

4) ask about phone imei is it the same with the box - he said yes (unable to confirm because he didnt show me new set only demo set

5) ask the seller either this is AP or Lenovo Malaysia - he said not AP but original lenovo (he did mention about Taiwan if i heard correctly) and he said there's no Lenovo Malaysia because all lenovo phone comes from 1 factory .. only is it distribute to which country.

6) check the app and found out their s650 already rooted - he said Lenovo s650 default is rooted from factory.. he said this is direct from there .. if user rooted themself warranty will be void.

7) ask again the price is it RM399 - he said RM399 but have T&C and must but casing and screen protector so total is RM460 .. if phone only is RM440 .. he even offer to give me free car charger (cap ayam ofkos)

--- so conclusion i didnt buy it .. need anybody who already have s650 to clarify the details above ..
--- anybody buy this from directd or aaron .. subang jaya ss15 shop

after few hours meddling with flash rom, I am successfully downgrade the current China lenovo ROM S126 back to S119.
S126 is full of Chinese characters even we already set the language into Eng, No Google Play as it has been removed and replaced by Lenovo Store which is 100% in Chinese.

To be careful to not update it, especially to non native Chinese sweat.gif

Ori 1 year Ienovo warranty. AP 2 years warranty with the reseller.

Hardware is completely similar.

That extra rm100 is basically for warranty. Obvs Lenovo is more reliable and no probs with spare parts etc

Depending on the seller, the ap set may or may not be rooted. FYI directd will not root their AP set. Requested them to root the A850 but they refused

One more thing, isn't it true that rumor has it that this S650 model will get Android Kit Kat in due course?

the most important things .. if AP the storage will be divided into 2 partion .. if original it will not be. if the partion is seperated it means the phone already been rooted .. this what the seller informs to me.

for hardware .. when i checked most probaly either batt .. or ram will not be the same like ori ..

this is my 2cents .. i thought AP and Ori only diff is warranty .. i thought wrong tongue.gif lulz

The VIBEROM_V1.0_2407_2_ST_S650 come with S650 (AP) from satugadget, so I don't have the link. I just wonder if any of you guys manage to flash standard Malaysian ROM (ROW) to replace this VIBEROM_V1.0_2407_2_ST_S650. Thank you in advance.

Wow, I can see that U got yourself an ROW version of ROM. Lucky U.

The WiFi is so damn poor compared to my Lenovo A850. Hell, even my old Xperia do better. Make me think twice about getting the newer S660, as the hardware is basically the same as S650, apart from the bigger battery.

Don't you EVER believe if someone selling you 2700mAh battery of the same size of the orginal 2000mAh. EVER!!!

Sun battery (among others) is one of those bogus claim battery, based on me and my friends personal experience.

Moral of the story, to be absolutely safe, stick with original battery.

Viberom got some chinese character here and there even after u switch to english. ROW don't.

As for the advice that you requested. I would say if you don't mind a slightly weaker wifi (compared to A850) then by all means, go for S650, because the phone is such a great phone for its price. No other phone (that I can think of right now) can even come close.

using this phone for 3 weeks now, took to Hong Kong and use for 1 week @ Disneyland and all, the camera performance there was great, the battery life is good, lasts about a day or 2 depending on usage, 3 days max without turning on data.

tip : once you change the camera setting to 8mp it will always stay at 8MP (good job lenovo) smile.gif

to those who havent bought this phone : please buy the ori set, i bought mine for 599 with original casing, the ori set has much better cellular quality then the AP set. i bought the A850 then changed to this, and so fa this is the better choice ( better camera quality and can set default storage to external memory ) smile.gif


ps. I'm just 16
you can ask me any other questions about this phone smile.gif ill be happy to tell you my experience with it.

I didn't really get your question, mind rephrasing the question?

If you're asking about whether the original set is available here, it is, I got mine at 1Gadget for 599, they have the AP set for 499.

If you're asking about the difference between both, the original set is a release of the phone specifically made for the country and warranty is covered by the manufacturing company (in this case, Lenovo Malaysia ) likewise the AP set is a release made for a country besides where you are staying, (in this case Malaysian AP sets are usually from china) and warranty is only covered by the dealer / company you bought the phone from. smile.gif

Hope this info helps, if this isn't what you were asking, you could ask again smile.gif

Hahaha, too many thread in one day, I guess this kind of mistake bound to happen. wink.gif

Yeah they do have ori for A850 but not the A880 (model in question).

True enough. Yeah, A880 original isn't an option here. You've got that right. My A850 still comes handy though smile.gif

Thanks. Looking forward to that.

I get it from satugadget at RM489 (AP). Right now waiting for the price of newly available S660 to go down to a more reasonable figure before decide whether or not to take it.

using this phone for 3 weeks now, took to Hong Kong and use for 1 week @ Disneyland and all, the camera performance there was great, the battery life is good, lasts about a day or 2 depending on usage, 3 days max without turning on data.

tip : once you change the camera setting to 8mp it will always stay at 8MP (good job lenovo) smile.gif

to those who havent bought this phone : please buy the ori set, i bought mine for 599 with original casing, the ori set has much better cellular quality then the AP set. i bought the A850 then changed to this, and so fa this is the better choice ( better camera quality and can set default storage to external memory ) smile.gif
ps. I'm just 16
    you can ask me any other questions about this phone smile.gif ill be happy to tell you my experience with it.
