Lenovo A806 Golden Warrior LTE phone now on sale for $179.99


lenovo a806 hero

What costs $180, has on octacore processor and fast LTE data connection? If you answered the Lenovo A806 then you are correct and it’s available outside of China now.

The Lenovo A806 Golden Warrior is possibly the best thought out sub $200 Android smartphone money can buy.

Rather than adding features or gimmicks that we don’t really need, Lenovo have focussed on producing a phone that benefits the user with the best possible features. For example Lenovo could have easily added a full HD display to the Golden Warrior and forgotten about LTE and a decent camera, but instead they’ve kept the most important parts by using 720HD panel.

In fact using that HD panel and the buying power they have, Lenovo have managed to give the A806 an octacore MT6592 processor, 2GB RAM, 13 mega-pixel main camera, 5 mega-pixel front and 2500mAh battery.

In China the Lenovo A806 can be had for a bargain price, but as always international buyers have to pay a premium, but it is still quite cheap at only $179.99.

    I have this phone. Love the Jiayu G4S, but this phone for the specs and price. Unbeatable.

      Is it WCDMA 900/2100 ? I like lenovo’s phone but they’re rarely WCDMA, sadly…

        Hi friend, it supports
        2G: GSM 900/1800/1900MHz
        3G: WCDMA 900/2100MHz
        4G: FDD-LTE B1 / B3 (1800/2100MHz) , you can check the sim network frequency, then you will know if you can use 3G or 4G network.

      I agree, have you hacked G4s?

        You mean rooted. Can’t praise that phone enough. G4S is the best phone I’ve had.

          Rooted, hacked is the same thing am afraid. Yes have you ? What ROM are you running?

            i have the G4S and can attest to its build quality and speed..currently on Team Force AOSP KitKat..

      Hows the build quality of JiaYu G4s?

        Amazing build quality. Honestly, better than any Samsung or Apple. Even their ROMS have finally sorted out their act.

          really? Jiayu G4S have good build? How about screen? Battery, camera… Im using a LG LTE3, it’s screen is very good, battery too. Want to switch to stronger phone with nice stat, nice design, nice battery, have sdcard and not too big

      Lenovo a806 now has the better price and higher performance, i think.

      • Adam Irvine

        I know the price is a little better (maybe £20 ($30ish) ) difference but is the performance really better with this?

    all reviews state very slow GPS, mediocre camera, and lots of Lenovo crap. too bad as on paper it’s supposed to be a winner. anyways it’s on pandawill for 160~ if you insists.

      Camera is bad. But a damn good phone. You can get rid of the Lenovo crap by installing one of the ROMs on needrom.

    tested both this and Coolpad F1… even if the Coolpad doesn’t have 4g (but has dual sim support), everything else is better on it! the Lenovo is a decent phone with nice specs, but doesn’t shine on anything unfortunately!
