Lenovo A7000 Hands-on, Initial Impressions



Lenovo A7000

The Lenovo A6000 launched not long time back in India, was very much a hit for getting about 300,000 sales in a couple of months. That, as a part of just the flash sales that are done on Flipkart. While the A6000 wasn’t the only good one in the price range, it had little that could make a user choose against it. The successor to this 5-incher is the Lenovo A7000, which is launched at the price of Rs. 8999.

Lenovo A7000 Camera App

The A7000 is a big deal. The size, the price and the specs-to-price ratio, every way you see this to be an interesting one. There is a wide range of devices in the similar price range and the size, as you see an option from every brand having a 5.5-inch device with competitive specs. Lenovo has its own list of USPs to make this a better unit than the others, and that includes the Dolby Atmos speakers, 64-bit processor supporting LTE, and the latest Android 5.0 Lollipop OS as well.

The device is made of plastic, no surprises as we’ve seen the same on the predecessor as well, and the matte finish at least keeps the device non-slippery, and the second advantage being you don’t see smudges or fingerprints retained on the back. The 720p resolution on a 5.5-inch display is quite a common thing in the recent times, so we don’t really feel it much different, and the bright colors make it just better than what you expect. On the early views, we notice wide viewing angles and vibrant colors, though the sunlight legibility is yet to be checked. One compromise with the screen, is just like in its predecessor, there is no screen protection.

One of the top-end 64-bit chipset from Mediatek is what powers the A7000, and Lenovo has decided to replace the Snapdragon one in A6000 with this, and it should be interesting to see how well it does to hold the Vibe UI on Android 5.0. It, though, has a 2GB RAM compared to the 1GB one in the A6000. The UI seems smooth and good on my initial few hours of usage, and the camera app, just like in the predecessor, the autofocus works perfectly and at a very quick pace. It is the same 8MP camera on the back of this phone, while the selfie lovers should admire it for the 5MP camera given on the front.

The bump in the battery capacity was expected as well, given the bigger screen and form factor, and a 2900 mAh battery is what we see in the A7000. While we frankly have nothing to criticise about the A7000, there are some worthy competitors to mention about, when we talk of choices – Yu Yureka, Xiaomi Redmi Note 4G and the Huawei Honor 4X, all with the same screen size, and almost the same form factor, though here, if performance is the most important factor, we choose Yu Yureka as our choice, until the proper testing of the A7000 is done.

Lenovo A7000 Back

Again, for the few hours of use, we felt the A7000 from Lenovo to be quite worth the price of Rs. 8999, and the final decision would depend on its performance and battery life, as the camera isn’t much different from the A6000, which don’t stand good in the competition against the similar-priced devices.
