Design

The Lenovo A7000 boasts a plastic body with a removable rear shell along with a row of physical capacitive buttons on the front panel below the display. The rear panel of the device has a soft-finish, but it doesn’t appear much premium, but thanks to the matte finish, it is not prone to fingerprints.

Display

The device houses a large 5.5-inch display with a resolution of 1,280 x 720 pixels, resulting into a not-so-impressive pixel density of 267ppi. So, don’t expect much of crispy details while viewing media on the device.

Configuration

The Lenovo A7000 utilises a 1.5GHz octa-core MediaTek processor that is further supported by 2GB of RAM. The device runs Android 5.0 Lollipop with the latest Lenovo Vibe UI on top, and comes with the brand’s own suite of Lenovo DOit applications. Storage needs are taken care by 8GB of internal memory, which users can further increase up to 32GB via a microSD card.

Camera

For the shutter-bugs, the Lenovo A7000 sports an 8MP primary shooter that thanks to autofocus and an LED flash captures quality photographs and videos. For selfie lovers, Lenovo has loaded the smartphone with a 5MP secondary shooter. The camera app of the device is loaded with a handful of features to improve the captured stills.

Connectivity and Battery

In terms of connectivity, the Lenovo A7000 hardly misses out anything. The smartphone is equipped with two SIM slots, supports India’s 4G LTE band 40, 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, micro-USB, and assisted GPS. The device sips power juice from a 2,900mAh battery, which the company claims to deliver up to 16 hours of talk time and 11 days of standby time when connected to 3G networks.

Wrapping it up- The Lenovo A7000 is definitely a great successor to the A6000 with such set of specifications. The 4G-enabled Android smartphone is priced quite affordably at $169, which translates roughly into Rs 10,500 in the Indian currency. Lenovo has sweetened the deal for the A7000 by pre-loading the phone with Guvera music app that offers unlimited music streaming from over a million songs. The smartphone was recently spotted while being tested on Indian 4G networks, so we expect it to be released in the next two months in the country.
