Lenovo Golden Warrior S8 in the layout of the device around and there is no change at the top of the device is a headphone jack and a power button at the bottom of the device is a microUSB jack, but personally feel more comfortable in the middle looks. On the left side of the device did not design any buttons, and volume keys were placed on the right side of the fuselage, which relatively few keys key way short, comfort in general, but the texture is very good indeed.

Battery capacity is 2000 mAh
Lenovo Golden Warrior S8 uses a removable cover, remove the rear cover we can see the internal structure of the fuselage, the aircraft is a dual card dual standby type, can be seen inside the cabin two SIM card slots and a microSD card slot, the machine in the network to support TD-SCDMA + GSM dual sim dual standby network, you may hope for WCDMA networks version in the future. In the battery, Lenovo Golden Warrior S8 uses a 2000 mAh battery, compared to other models Note red rice is slightly lower.
In the UI, Lenovo Golden Warrior S8 with a new Lenovo VIBE ROM , compared to Lenovo S898t for this area really is not a small improvement, Lenovo VIBE ROM based on Android 4.2 system version of the depth of customization, ease of use and user-friendly technology has a very good performance.

In terms of icons, VIBE ROM uses a rounded rectangle design, and background colors are chosen very bright colors orange, green, etc., so that the whole interface looks a strong visual impact, and also let the rounded rectangle icon desktop look more neat.
Rounded Rectangle icon design
Feature-rich, user-friendly and useful.
Compared to the previous Lenovo UI, VIBE ROM canceled the application drawer design, all programs were tested on the desktop, the application plug-ins and other menu VIBE ROM uses the same UI wanted to fit in with the overall design, high consistency, and there have been a number of personalized settings many improvements, such as binding and other functions such as WLAN location will allow users to feel smart phones "smart" lies.

The actual effect is obvious saving music
Of course, VIBE ROM Lenovo also introduced throughout numerous management tools applications, and system integration from deep in functionality provides the user with the perfect support, such as security like music, fun saving so that they the user can use the smart phone provides many convenient and reputation of the association of these applications are also quite good, has been recognized by many users.
In the photo, Lenovo Golden Warrior S8 uses a combination of camera camera 5MP + 13 megapixel, 13 million pixel camera aperture in the rear use f/2.2, using a second-generation back-illuminated sensor, with a blue glass filters.

On the other hand, the association of gold fighter S8 is also very strong in the software, the machine is equipped with a super camera V3.5, compared with other competitors have a more powerful in terms of functionality and filters, etc., and the super camera itself There is also a very fast iterative upgrade, so the user experience is guaranteed.
Real outdoor photo sample
Real indoor photo sample
Of course, when it comes to cameras, we still use the sample, the sample through outdoor and indoor we can see, in the color and picture detail satisfactory performance in the color reproduction performance is also good, the whole picture looks very comfortable, but one of the proofs in the room texture and lack of focus on the line, but it could also be because of engineering machines, hope in the future of mass production version of which resolved.
In terms of macro and night, macro performance is quite good, after all, think of gold fighter S8 has a large f/2.2 aperture, the bokeh on has its own advantages, but on the other hand, large aperture also can increase the intake the amount of light, I believe there will be aspects of this night excellent performance.
As a large-screen models, Lenovo gold fighter S8 performance on the screen is still very prominent, full-screen quality and fit hardware LTPS material itself, in terms of color and viewing angle have a very good performance, so that Lenovo gold fighter S8 also see films definitely considered one artifact, but then I will be testing this multimedia aspect.
1080p Video files Test
1080P video camera shot test
In the tests, I chose the 15 segments 1080P Full HD video, the video bit rate and encoding format varies throughout the testing process, only a very few need to use a third-party video player to play, but all the videos are You can smooth playback, which can also explain the machine processor performance is very good.
In terms of hardware, the Lenovo Golden Warrior S8 uses a MediaTek MT6592 m low-frequency version of the processor, the processor uses a 28-nanometer manufacturing process, has 8 Cortex-A7 architecture core, clocked at up to 1.4GHz, the aircraft in terms of memory have two sizes, the standard version is 1GB RAM +8 GB ROM and blessings version is 2GB RAM +16 GB ROM, this model is a blessing we tested version of Lenovo Golden Warrior S *, then we passed several software Lenovo Golden Warrior S8 test the strength of concrete.

Comprehensive Performance Testing - AnTuTu Benchmark
AnTuTu Benchmark is a specialized system for Android phones, Tablet PC hardware running of the software, it can run a full test of a key project, through memory performance, CPU integer performance, CPU floating point performance, 2D, 3D graphics performance Database I / O, SD card read, write speed and many other performance tests, and make the overall score and individual performance of the hardware of the phone. Meanwhile upload scores and view the device in the world ranking.
GPU graphics test - 3DMark
Futuremark 3DMark was originally introduced in the PC graphics performance of a dedicated measurement software, but with the change of version, 3DMark has been gradually transformed into a measure of the overall performance of the software, in the minds of fans is to establish a benchmark test image. February 2013, following the 3DMark 11, a new generation of products to "3DMark" blockbuster debut this retro name, in addition to the Windows platform, but also added a new applied Android, iOS and Windows RT three versions. 3DMark desktop platforms, there are three different load scenarios, which is designed for high-end products based on DirectX11 graphics design FireStrike, supports DirectX10 hardware CloudGate mainstream and entry-level devices to create DirectX9 IceStorm. In the Android version of the iOS version, only IceStorm a scenario.
Browser Test - Vellamo
Vellamo is Qualcomm (Qualcomm) developed a benchmark application (like Neocore), which lets you phone browser performance and stability tests, including performance as Java script, rendering, networking and user interface. The results of this tool also includes a number of children, but we just take the total score, the higher the score indicates higher degree of optimization for mobile phone browsers, Web browsing experience better.
Vellamo as a mobile web Ruler tool, has now expanded to include two major modules. HTML5 mobile module can be used to evaluate the performance of a web browser, while the CPU module can Metal mobile processor subsystem performance measurements. Click on the test suite that is used, convenient, sub-module management, Vellamo can scroll zoom, 3D graphics, video, performance, memory read bandwidth for peak performance, and many other aspects to be evaluated.
Lenovo Golden Warrior S8 is a very good price models, compared with the other thousand eight-core models at the same level on the hardware configuration and have more options, it highlights the aircraft in its excellent design, 7.9 mm slim body also has certain advantages, it can be said the performance of the aircraft in terms of texture even better, if you really think of aspects represented as futures do not play, I believe that the association will be able to get the gold fighter S8 consumers favor.
