User opinions and reviews

Sort by:


Made an account just to review this phone. I use it for everything, even riding bicycle. The best high-end phone for small hands, even with a protective case. has the pen-tile problem but you get used to it. Intel processor does have some chokes at points. is very fast in app transition (i use it for college works). battery is enough for a full (24hrs) day of use (charging every night), but can go on to almost 2 days. I have not dropped it so I have no idea if it can take a punch.

This phone can't get any smaller from the sides, but it could lose a couple of millimetres off the bottom ( still not a lot of bezel though). Just look how big sony phones of similar screen size are .
If motorola make the x-phone anything less than 4.7 inch and keep it edge to edge i'll definitely buy it since im not ready to jump into the 5 inch category just yet. Meanwhile, i'm perfectly happy with my razr i.

1 year on, and this is still a really strong 4.3" compact phone. Beats the dimensions of S4 Mini and HTC One Mini. I wouldn't be surprised it it had better battery life and a larger battery as well. Does anyone know if there are any smaller phones with 4.3" display.

and the galaxy s4 octa core uses the same but mp4
that means lenovo will use a dual core and samsung quad core GPU, but still a good GPU but they should had put the quad core GPU in it

What an ugly design! Even the screws on the sides are clearly visible.

I think the lenovo will be an absolute beast. However, I'm not a fan of huge phones, which is why I thought of the Xiaomi Mi-2s since its got all the goodies in a small package. Just like the Xiaomi Mi-2s, however, its availability could be very limited. This didn't stop me from getting the razr i from overseas, but it stops the phone from being a hit and getting good sales.

Judging by what I've seen from the razr i, I think the lenovo K900 will be faster than the S4 et al. Much faster, actually. Its gpu is the same as the one on my ipad 3, which performs brilliantly (better than adreno 320). The only series disadvantage for me is the stainless steel body. I had it on a nokia C7 a while ago and it heated up quite a bit and pretty poor reception.

Between the phones you've mentioned, i'd choose either the Sony or the lenovo. I'm not a fan of LG and Samsung seriously lack creativity. Xperia Z would be the beauty and the Lenovo would be the beast :)
For me, however, I'm hoping for another Moto with intel and a smaller than 5 inch screen size.

I dont know if you've heard, but samsung will release a tablet with an intel processor (tab3 10.1). This will be a major boost for intel processors. I'm hoping more and more phones will have them.

As for the memory bit, don't worry about it. I've already filled a 16gb with music, some shows and pictures and it doesnt look like it really cares.

Now all the competitors became like shaky puppies before this Intel powered steel beast!!!!!!!!! *_* GOTTA HAVE IT!!!!

It's priced from USD 699 to 730 (presale, Ebay)!! Not bad!
Gotta have it!!!!! *-*

I feel I really have to put on sale my very well conserved Xperia Pro, right now!!!!! Jajajaja! Once selled, I definitly buy this k900!!!!!

Wow, having such back up of good performance and reputation on performance on the Razr i being a single core makes this Lenovo a certainly winning bet!!
Btw, it scores 6867 in 3DMark benchmark, where the Razr i gets a good score of 2416 (and 1243 in extreme mode) Looks like the new GPU in the K900 is very good, and it moves a 1080p display. For me that's too much, I'd be happy with 720p, anyway, it's ok. The highest score in 3DMark is 11070 by Xiaomi MI-2s, the second is the SGS4 Snapdragon 600 version with 10859 :D the Exynos version got 10018. Not bad for the Lenovo k900 huh? Jaja :D I'm not a benchmarks fan, no.
Do you believe that in real-life heavy usage the Intel powered K900 could outperform the others? I do! As the Razr i could to the GS3 and others!

Ok... after getting to breath normally... Thanks for your tip. Definitly the SmartActions app has a lot of potential (and does not consume much RAM as the others like email, lwps, etc). I currently have 2 rules and working fine since lastest update! :D Will explore more its capabilities later!

Please comment on the Lenovo k900 a bit more, do you think it lacks something? I confirmed through a user that it does have MHL and microSD card slot up to 32Gb. Great!

I'd like to see a face off against the Galaxy S4 with benchmarks (Antutu, Quadrant, Epic Citadel, Passmark, and ofcourse 3dMark), and real multitasking as a video TheRazrGuy did between the Razr i and the GS3 showing real-life multitasking, switching apps and games really fast. Btw, there the Razr i did very well, even it was a noticeable steady performance not like the GS3 that slowed down a bit. I think that show us how good the Razr i RAM handling is, and it's responsiveness under heavy usage. *-*
What do you think?

I'm planning to buy this K900, I think it will cost some $ 750 (USD).
If you could pick among the Xperia Z, LG Optimos G2, GS4, and the Lenovo k900 which would you choose? and Why?

Please guys, lets comment on this :D

Btw, today I'll get my microSD card for the Razr i, I'll torture it and see how well it does :D
Can someone give me a link to a rooting guide for this device? I'd like to tune it a bit. Thank you!

- L.
