@The Incinerator I am not expecting 1080 panel but 720 for 5.3 inch is plane stupid. A7 is outdated & even A9.. 15k is ok for that phone any way.

I'm using Nexus 4 more than 6 month, installed over 250 apps. It still feels like butter just like iOS. Never faced any glitch or lag till date. *Best android experience*

Yeah. Before, Android was very basic & needed polishing, this was the selling & differentiating point for these companies. But now Android has improvised much more & we are indeed upto the point where it doesn't need much polishing otherwise it can have an adverse effect. I don't open the samsung crapps even with gingerbread which came with my ace & I am banging my head since I can't upgrade to Jelly Bean & stuck with it :banghead:.

True thats why i said it ain't worth 19K if it was launched at 14-15K it would be a Xperia M dual Killer

That's the reason we got N4... Anyday oven any phone in 25k range.

@ those who are still crying for N4 battry is not good, refer my screenshots Here. it's superb after 4.3 update. u people only read reviews those were taken with 4.1.2 or 4.2.2 .. So don't comment until u have hands-on with N4.

^^^YOU forgot to COMPARE the PRICE !!!Which for the Lenovo is Rs 18.5K at Tradus

More over the biggest biggest draw back of the Xperia SP is it dosnt have a removable battery.
It is not a Quadcore.
Has a smaller display non IPS display
And is thicker over the Lenovo
Dosnt have a Dual Sim option
And Costs Rs 2500 more


IF OP really wants to spend 25K ,I would say get the Nexus 4 anyday.

LOL dude its 20K on ebay (Xperia SP) with M.W. By a Top rated seller
Its a Mediatek is it that difficult to understand
Quadcore > Dual Core this formula some times don't work
Removable Battery is plus point for security reasons.
7.9 mm vs 9.98 mm Seriously (-_-)
Dosnt have a Dual Sim option = Single Sim because one sim will be inactive always when you are talking on another sim (Caller will get "The number you are trying is switched off")

Tell me guys if Samsung is selling the Galaxy Grand for Rs 18999 how do you expect the way way better Lenovo S920 at Rs 15K? Lenovo has a very good after sales support and its pan India. Considering all its a great deal.


So what if its a Mediatek? So what? You are like Ooh I love Intel and dont want an AMD? Grow Up.Its the Architecture. Loud and clear. and for present scheme of things and coding its too good. Theres nothing no game or 1080p that will make it lag. Non removable battery for ,what Security? Once again Security? Ha ha ha ha hahahahahahahahahaaaaaaaaaaaaah.:rofl: More is always better. So Dual Sim = Better than not having that option.Simple.:facepalm: 7.9 mm vs 9.98 mm Very Very Seriously?

Well we know that grand is sh*t... but it's samsungs strong marketing & stupid people which is why grand is selling.

Given the choice between Sony & Lenovo, at this point I will go with Sony since it has already been in this market since long & Lenovo is a newcomer. And comparing Xperia SP with S920, Sony fares better. But we have to keep in mind what the OP wants & his/her lines:
i'm an android lover ios hater....
i would probably root it and flash a ROM after the warranty expires...

With that, I would strongly recommend Nexus 4 period. Support for this device in the developer community is immense!

Even if its a newcomer ,Lenovo is not new to the game or an out of the blue tech company,so I see no reason to see it with suspicion as it knows what its doing. Lenovo is mulling to buy Blackberry too! So its here to stay in the MID/Phone category.

Glad to hear it.

Don't know what do you mean hardware problem in this phone, battery was mediocre but now boosted almost twice with 4.3 update, lasts more than 24 hours in normal use.

Let me just tell that, I was in the court of buying a N4 couple of weeks ago. Preferably a international one (because of the price difference). As the phone will not have any warranty i was searching for the worst possible case. And there I was. Let me just give you a glimpse.

1) Tingling power/ volume buttons
2) Yellow tint issue
3) Static from earpiece.

To list a few. There are not some rare issues. These issues are right there in a lot of phones. If you want more details I can provide you tens of threads and hundreds of posts that are there.

Next comes the design issues:

1. Darn easily breakable back glass. So breakable that Google provides bumper if you purchase from few carriers.
2. LG knows cr@p about thermal design. It is so much visible in this phone. The phone turns into a mini owen.
3. Loudspeaker placement is so dumb, that there has been reports of people not listening the ring because when you lay phone on a flat surface, it completely muffs the speaker. LG later addressed this issue by adding a nipple at the bottom.


And then there is the mediocre camera. What do you think?
Your phone might be rocking. And I am very happy for that. But that isn't the case everywhere.


Sub-par screen and not so great loudspeaker than Xperia SP Dude please do research and then comment on this part. Display of Nexus 4 is Tru-HD IPS Panel, far superior in contrast, viewing angle and brightness level than any Xperia phone in the market. Loudspeakers have higher pitch than normal and made more for louder ringtone than quality listening music on them.

I was not comparing the display of N4 with SP, but the loudspeaker. I do agree that SP display leaves much to be desired in Viewing angles and color reproduction department. But that doesn't mean that IPS of N4 is a killer. My friend has N4 and I look at it almost every day. Although the display is bright, the colors look washed out, it lacks any vividness that AMOLED/S-LCD provides.


And regarding the loudspaker.

Do I need to say more?

Don't get me wrong. N4 is a stellar phone. But it is not messiah phone, as most of the N4 users are worshiping it. No phone is perfect so is SP, S4, Htc One. I am just saying that if I have to choose between N4 and SP. I would choose SP anyday. And I have stated my reasons clearly. You are always allowed to disagree. Now if anyone is ready to face this issues for development support it got. Its their choice. But we should point it out to the OP, then let him decide if dev support matters him that much.

That's the reason we got N4... Anyday oven any phone in 25k range.

@ those who are still crying for N4 battry is not good, refer my screenshots Here. it's superb after 4.3 update. u people only read reviews those were taken with 4.1.2 or 4.2.2 .. So don't comment until u have hands-on with N4.

Then LG should not have made the phone until 4.3 was out. The fact that 4.3 increases battery doesn't mean that N4 has a good battery life. It means that 4.3 is better at handling things. If they have made a phone with good battery life... the results would be astonishing in 4.3.

Xperai SP battery is pain ask anyone using it. It drains like as if theres no tomorrow.

Battery life is highly subjective. One has to check for wakelocks and should allow the phone to settle in. There might be people screaming that their battery drain is high without allowing the phone to settle. And SP is a fairly new phone. What are the minor wakelock issues with few users, that are there now, will be curbed in next update. And the Stamina mode of Sony is the best in the business AFIAK. Makes the phone last ages.

1) Tingling power/ volume buttons = This issue is not there after 304k models.
2) Yellow tint issue = this is also not there. [Do some research before posting]
3) Static from earpiece. = I never hear that in my phone.

About back glass it's users mistake that he drop the phone, being careless is not a company's fault.
U think N4 screen looks washed out ? are u drunk ?? lol :facepalm:
