Reviews for the Lenovo A7000
Source: Laptop Media Archive.org version
Lenovo A7000 is a good example of what affordable phablet models should have. Along with the 5.5-inch IPS HD screen, the model pleased us with it’s high graphic and computing performance, thin body (only 8 mm), and wide variety of software features, making this device even more lucrative. Lenovo’s user interface has once again proved that it is one of the richest, when it comes to pre-installed apps, modes, features, settings etc. Having Android 5.0 Lollipop as the OS on the device, we can’t have any remarks in the software department. The battery, with 2900 mAh capacity, also permed really good. The only result that we can consider bad is the one in our 3D gaming test, but aside from it everything else was great. Perhaps the camera is the most disappointing part of the phone. Even though it got somewhat acceptable results in our synthetic tests, we weren’t happy with the sample photos. The display on the other hand, performed very good. It has 97% sRGB color gamut coverage, leading to vivid and colorful images, and also lack of PMW across all brightness levels.
