Design and Appearance
The first thing you will notice is the large 5.5 screen which you can see its smooth front screen with a matte plastic back casing part which is has a very good grip to avoid slippage. The power and volume buttons are on the right side of the phone and the micro usb connector is at the top which is similar to Lenovo Vibe Shot. The back portion also has the 8 megapixel rear camera , flash and the speakers are well. The front has a 5 mega pixel camera and you will notice that there is no “Lenovo” logo at the front which is good depending on your preference.
User interface and Operating System (OS)
The phone has the latest Android lollipop OS which you have all the access to the androids new interface and the VIBE UI where all app icons are in one screen and does not have any drawers or sort (similar to an iphone). You will also find pre installed apps that will further make your Lenovo experience worthwhile like the Dolby almos app where you can set the audio quality of the device and pre install games like Asphalt 8, Green Farm 3, Real Football and Tap the frog HD.
Display and Graphics
This will be my highlights in the review since I am a very heavy mobile user whether in watching movies, browsing and playing games all at the same time. I have to give a thumbs for being on par with the higher powered smartphones. I try to play high graphic online RPG games like Holy Knight and Iron Knights and I am impressed on the performance and graphics display of Lenovo A7000 Plus, with its 5.5 inch screen it was able to play the games smoothly and almost no lags which is amazing.
Also tried watching movies with it and it is just as good as it gets where the videos played smoothly without a glitch. Though there are times that the phone will heat up if you used it for a long which is negligible for me.
The Lenovo A700 Plus is better that I expected which is able to do the functions just as well as a premium smartphone for the lesser price. 5.5 screen is clear and smooth and great for games even those with high demand graphics. It needs improvement in the camera side but it’s still ok. Removable 3000mah battery means you can change it whenever it runs out of juice for being used for a long time and the dual sim capability definitely keeps you in the loop in your contacts circle.
You can get the Lenovo A7000 Plus for only 7,999 in Lazada
