Reviews for the Lenovo A5
Source: The Mobile Indian
To conclude, the Lenovo A5 comes with an impressive compact form factor, good display, average camera, Android 8.1 Oreo and decent battery life. However, the smartphone does not bring anything new to the table and it lacks in performance too with an old chipset. So, if you are planning to buy a new standard designed budget smartphone with decent specs, then this can be considered as an option. At this price point, the phone faces a stiff competition with the Xiaomi Redmi 6A, Realme C1, Infinix Smart 2, and Yu Ace.
