Reviews for the Lenovo A5

Lenovo A5 Review: Is it worth buying?
Source: The Mobile Indian English
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.

This display is quite big for a smartphone but frequently used for smartphones.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.


Lenovo: Lenovo ( "Le" as in the English word legend and "novo" (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company. From 2004, the company has been the largest laptop manufacturer in China and got the fourth largest manufacturer worldwide after the acquisition of IBM's PC division in 2005. In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company also produces monitors, projectors, servers, etc.

In 2011, Lenovo acquired the majority of Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer. In 2014, Lenovo took over Motorola Mobility, which gave them a boost in the smartphone market.

From 2014 to 2016 Lenovo's market share in the global notebook market was 20-21%, ranking second behind HP. However, the distance decreased gradually. In the smartphone market, Lenovo did not belong to the Top 5 global manufacturers in 2016.
