Review: Lenovo A6000
Earlier: Apr 17, 2015 – Lenovo, at the Flipkart’s live flash sale event in Bangalore, just spilled out some words about an upcoming device, which is basically an upgraded version of the popular A6000 smartphone. Called as the Lenovo A6000 Plus, the device is said to have 2GB of RAM instead of the 1GB RAM that we saw in the A6000. Also, we are going to see 16GB of internal storage in the device (bumped from 8GB internal in the A6000).
The pricing probably is set at Rs. 7499 and the phone is going on sale from April 20th. Given how the A6000 is available for Rs. 6999, and the successor A7000 is priced at Rs. 8999, the bump in storage and RAM is going to make it sit in between the two. As we had said earlier, the pricing of Rs. 7499 is a good one, but disappointing to those who already have the A6000 and paid just Rs. 500 lesser.
Everything else will be the same, and the device will have a 5-inch HD IPS display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 1.2 GHz quad-core processor with Adreno 306 GPU, and a 2300 mAh battery (which might now look like the only disadvantage), and the Android 4.4 KitKat OS with Lenovo’s Vibe UI on the top of it.
This should be your choice only if you are okay with an 8MP camera (5MP camera on front is what has changed) and don’t want to choose the A7000 because of the bigger size of the phone.
