If a thought was doing rounds in your head saying that devices sporting 4G capabilities in the budget segment are limited to A6000 and Redmi Note 4G, think again. Lenovo has sprung a surprise with A7000, a device that stands between budget and mid-range smartphone segments. The good part of all this is that you, the users, stand to gain the most out of it. But the A7000 is not the same package as the A6000 and we are here to tell you how.
The A7000 sports 76.2mmx152.6mmx7.99mm (lxbxh) as its dimensions and weighs 140gm. The Lenovo A7000 is a nice device and feels quite nice when held in hand as its weight is not much, an impression you might not get when you first look at the device.
The Lenovo A7000 sports a 5.5-inch screen that puts out display resolution of 1280x720 pixels. The pixels per inch ratings stands at 267 and the display support multi-touch of up to 5 points and is a standard IPS LCD display.
The Lenovo A7000 runs on Android 5.0 Lollipop and has been skinned with the smartphone maker's proprietary Vibe UI 2.0. You get 8GB internal storage space and you can use a microSD card to expand it up to 32GB.
Performance and Battery Life
The Lenovo A7000 sports a 1.5GHz octa-core MediaTek MT6752m processor and has been paired with Mali760 MP2 GPU and 2GB RAM. Quite a powerful combination, it should be able to help you deal with daily tasks as well as power-hungry processes with ease. Powering the hardware is a 2900mAh battery which has been rated to last for 16 hours of usage and 11/12 days of standby on a single full charge.
The Lenovo A7000 sports an 8-megapixel camera on the back and a 5-megapixel one on the front. The rear camera has LED flash while the front snapper is a standard fixed-focus unit.
There is 3G and 4G network capabilities present on the smartphone along with Wifi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS/A-GPS and FM radio. A microUSB port with OTG functionality and dual SIM seal the deal.
The A7000 is just a grown-up A6000 with more power under the hood than its elder sibling. Not just that, it also comes with a better camera unit up front and bigger screen ensures a big battery can be used to power the smartphone. Those factors are obvious with the only difference not visible from the outside being the octa-core processor used to power the smartphone through its tasks. The A7000 is one big reason why Motorola needs to rush up its launch of Moto G's 4G variant in India. Asus also needs to hurry up with its launch of ZenFone 5's updated variant in India to not lose much market space to Lenovo and its A7000.
