Lenovo A7000 Review and personal opinion

Design & Built:

The Lenovo A7000 has the built quality very similar to the A6000. The rear panel is made up of plastic which is not rich and it is not bad too.The Size and the thin body make it harder sometimes to operate in the single hand. Coming to the design part of the phone, the A7000 has the Volume rockers and the power button on the right side.The buttons are well placed for an easy access on the 5.5 inch Phablet.The mic is placed at the bottom and there is nothing on the left side of the phone.The USB charging port and the 3.5mm headphone port are placed the top.Coming to the rear side, There is noise cancelation mic at the top right position.The single speaker is placed at the top, but Lenovo A7000 has a dual speaker at the rear bottom.There is a LED notification light at the front for quick notifications purpose.The rear panel is removable and the battery is User removable.

 

Display:

The Lenovo A7000 comes with the 5.5 inches HD display.The resolution of the display is 1280 x 720 Pixels with 5Multi touch points.The viewing angles of the phone is really good and even readable at sunlight. But sadly the display is not protected by Corning Gorilla Glass and it has Corning Dragon tail Glass on the top which was used on the Redmi 2.The Company also provides the Screen Guard inside the box of Lenovo A7000.There are some features like a Double tap to wake up, prevent pocket dials which are very good for the price.

Processor:

The phone has the 1.5 GHz Cortex MediaTek MT6752m 64-bit processor which is good at the performance. Some people think that MediaTek processor is bad when compared to the Snapdragon but that not correct.Here is the article by Chetan from Phone Radar about the MediaTek processor.The processor of the phone is aided by the 2GB of RAM around which 900MB are free.The gaming on the Lenovo A7000 is really good and I enjoy playing on this 5.5″ phone.I tested playing some High-end games like Asphalt 8, Dead Trigger 2 and Real Racing 3.The games are highly playable and there are no lags.But sometimes when there are too many Apps running in the background, I could notice a very little lag. Coming to the heating Issue which people concern more these days, there is no such problem, but you could feel very little warm while charging your phone and high-end gaming.The phone could able to play High-quality 1080p videos without any issues.

Camera:

The 8MP rear camera on the Lenovo A7000 is good for the money provided.At the first glance, I was quite disappointed with the camera as the color reproduction was not that great.The image quality is good and the phone is able to capture better photos with third party camera Apps like Google Camera and Camera 360.The User Interface of the default Lenovo camera is clean and simple with added features.The photo can be clicked by touching the screen or by saying ” Snap or Cheese“.

The camera is really good in the outdoor shots, but the Auto Focus is not that quick.The color produced are little lower than the natural color.Here are the Camera Samples of Lenovo A7000.

 

One great thing about the Lenovo A7000 is its LED Flash, the flash is really good with the phone.There is no excess of light and the light is well distributed all over the object.The rear camera is capable of recording 1080p videos as well.The 5MP front camera does an excellent job and it can capture the selfie with Eye blink and hand sign.

Dolby ATMOS:

Dolby ATMOS is the one of the special feature added to Lenovo A7000. This feature is not that great with the default speakers or the headset provided in the box. If you can attach some good Headphone then you can enjoy this feature for moving and surrounding sounds in the Video.

UI & OS:

The Lenovo A7000 runs on the latest Android Lollipop 5.0 out of the box.The stock OS is decorated by Vibe UI and comes with some preinstalled themes.Some of the pre-installed Application on the A7000 are Share it, Guvera Music, True Caller, UC Browser, Evernote, Facebook, Twitter, Skype, We chat, Game store, Tap the Frog HD, Green Farm 3, Spider-Man Ultimate, Real Football 2015( without game data), Asphalt 8 ( without game data) and Google Apps. The Apps, Games and media can be directly installed and stored in Memory card.But not the full or game can be moved to SDCard, only some part of data can be moved.You can press the menu button to close the recent Apps and clean the RAM. There is an option called “Wide Touch” by which you can navigate the phone very easily.Also, Secure Zone option takes you to the new login which is very useful when you give your phone to the unknown persons.The Lenovo A7000 has the feature of Automatic Scheduled Power ON and Power OFF.There is an inbuilt File Browser available on the Lenovo A7000.

Battery:

The device is packed with 2900 mAh battery and the overall performance of the battery life is decent.The battery lasted for almost the full day on the average usage. Keeping the 3G mobile data enabled, hard browsing of Apps and with little of gaming the battery lasted for the 8 hours which is good for the price.

Final Verdict:

From the Lenovo A7000 review above you could have some idea about the device. Also, the phone has 4G connectivity support and the call quality is loud and clear. If you need a Smartphone with the large display, some extra features, and OK camera quality then Lenovo A7000 is the best choice for you. If you have any further queries about the device, please leave the comment below.

  1. MUST READ REVIEW!
    I am using Lenovo A7000 from 16th April 2015. After using 10 days I can understand you are described this product very well. But some of your description regarding this mobile I never found correct. One of the most thing you described that we can install apps and games “DIRECTLY” on SD card but I did not found this option at all. If we go with “Settings > Storage > Default write disc” then we can choose SD card option which allow the user to transfer some apps and games (not all apps and games) on SD card but we cannot send the entire apps, games and its data to SD card. For an example: I installed Flipkart from Play store and I transferred the same to SD card. After transferring it is occupied 19.52mb+1.02mb from phone memory and 9.34mb+96kb from SD card. So I think you can understand what I wanted to say.
    I know you will ignore my review because when you wrote FAQ and Doubt clearing about Lenovo A7000 that time someone asked you the same and he demand you show some screen shots regarding this issue but you did not reply his review.
    So it will be helpful for other viewer who are thinking about to buy this phone to take correct decision.

    • Thanks for this elaborate comment Rajveer.Yes, not the entire Apps or game can be moved to the SD card but the default storage location can be marked as SD Card.Some part of the data will be in internal memory same like every other Android Phones.Once again thanks for taking time to write this usefull comment for our readers.
