A Look Into Lenovo a6000

Marketed as the cheapest 4G LTE capable device in the market right now, the Lenovo A6000 is definitely grabbing immediate attention.

What we try to figure out in this review is whether they will manage to retain this initial attention, or fail as a device that is not just cheap, but just as bad in quality.

In terms of the look and design, we must say that the Lenovo 6000 doesn’t amaze us. It is more or less built similar to any smartphone available in the market within the price bracket, specific features including – rectangular form factor, rounded corners in a non-metallic shell. While we weren’t really expecting it to stand out, for a novel design, we definitely would have appreciated something new from the design point of view. On the plus side, it is light-weight and features a facility to swap the back-panel between black, white and red. However, that is that, for design innovation.

The touch-phone features a 5 inch HD screen, with three additional touch navigation buttons at the bottom. One minus that stands out is the fact that these buttons are not back lit. They are however, extremely responsive and fit the functional need. The front panel also features the 2MP front facing camera, which is not much, but useful, considering the price range, the phone falls into.

The back panel features an 8MP camera, LED flash and is done in a beautiful matte finish. The best part about this purchase would be that Lenovo has included surprise goodies – including a screen protector.

As said above, the phone features a 5 inch HD display, with basic screen resolution of 720p X 1920p which seems to provide brilliant view-angles and nice color options. The down-side is that the glass is not a Gorilla glass, something that today has become a norm, and not an exception even with mid-range devices. It therefore makes more sense that the screen guard was offered in the first place.

Mobile Upgrades: Killing The Product Before Its Time?

Have to agree. The speed of newer phone models within the same series and newer app versions lead to more thought put into buying decisions. Phone lines have a definite short shelf life

Frequently upgrading the software is a real problem as updating the software might cause your phone to lag because of the older hardware.

They should come out with upgrades for the specific phones and not for the separate Operating System. This way a special version for your phones specific hardware can be made
