And as luông chồng would have it, we actually got our hands on a unit for đánh giá. We’ve sầu been putting it through its paces since this morning and we’ve gathered our thoughts on it here, for you.

*

The Lenovo A7000 Plus is a new version of a phone that is already out and available in the market today. However, compared khổng lồ the original, it’s tagged as better, brighter, & faster, despite it being only a little bit more pricier at launch.

With the above menu of features, we can tell you one thing: Lenovo worked hard to lớn paông chồng in as much bang for the buchồng as they possibly could with this Model.

First off, consider how the A7000 Plus looks. It’s about as basic as a smartphone can get in this day và age. There’s a flat glass screen, a matte plastic back, some bits & pieces of metal all around, & a uniform màu đen for the entire handset’s body.

*

Not that there’s anything wrong with that, of course. The A7000 Plus may have focused on function, but it doesn’t look lượt thích it neglected khung at all.

The first thing we noticed about the A7000 Plus is how light and easy to lớn hold it is in the hvà. Even though it has a 5.5-inch screen, it didn’t feel too big even during one-handed use.

Display

Speaking of the screen, the A7000 Plus’s 5.5-inch panel offers a native resolution of 1920×1080 pixels. That’s the kind of screen we expect nowadays on any Android phablet, & we’re glad to lớn see it on the A7000 Plus.

*

What’s more, the screen is great in terms of viewing angles and color accuracy. And the automatic brightness adjustment really helps make the A7000 Plus easy on the eyes.

*

Camera

The Lenovo A7000 Plus comes with dual cameras, lượt thích any proper Android điện thoại thông minh. The rear camera has a 13-megapx autofocus sensor, while the front camera has a 5-megapixel fixed focus sensor.

The rear camera is surprisingly good for something that is not marketed as such. In the press release we got from Lenovo Smartphones Philippines at the phone’s local unveiling, the focus was more on the performance of the display, audio, và updated processor (SoC).

*

Taking photos with both the rear và front cameras turned out not only easy but a bit rewarding. As photos come out with a good amount of clarity và very little noise in all but the darkest or dimly lit locations.

Audio

In terms of audio, the A7000 Plus boasts Dolby ATMOS sound giải pháp công nghệ. This gives a unique 360-degree audio experience, & it’s something that you are pretty much not going to get with any other handset (except those that also have Dolby ATMOS in them).

It’s not easy to lớn draw conclusions about this kind of stuff, và experiences with audio & sound chất lượng can often be subjective sầu, but from what we’ve sầu been able lớn get out of the Lenovo A7000 Plus so far, Dolby ATMOS is really a great addition for making the most out of music và movies.

Dolby ATMOS even has a dedicated Android app, and it’s available pre-installed on the Lenovo A7000 Plus. Based on our quick tests, when used in coordination with a good pair of proper headphones, you will be able khổng lồ hear the difference in sound quality immediately.

Connectivity

Connectivity is another thing where the A7000 Plus excels. While other phones in its price range are still stuông chồng at 3G, here it comes with built-in 4G LTE support.

*

The A7000 Plus can take in two micro SIM cards at once, although only one of them can actually be used with 4G LTE. Other wireless connectivity features include Công nghệ Bluetooth 4.0 & Wi-Fi n.

Software & Gaming

At launch, the A7000 Plus comes with Android 5.0 Lollipop. It uses stoông xã Google Android apps in some areas, with some custom-made & third-tiệc ngọt solutions in others.

HD mobile gaming is definitely more than a possibility with this phone, thanks to lớn its use of a speedy 1.7GHz octa-core processor & 2GB of RAM. The 16GB of RAM will also be useful for those certain games that need lots of storage space.

Speaking of storage space, it’s possible khổng lồ add more to the internal storage with microSD cards. The microSD thẻ slot is located under the baông xã cover, right beside the SIM cards và above the battery.

We haven’t had time lớn vì chưng a full battery kiểm tra with the A7000 Plus yet, but based on our day with it — remember, we have sầu had it & have sầu been using it since this morning with just the charge it came with out of the factory — it’s not unusual for the battery lớn last more than one day of normal điện thoại thông minh use.

For now, we would estimate that the 2900mAh battery can last about 5-6 hours of heavy điện thoại thông minh use with 4G LTE data running in the background. That may sound underwhelming, but with the power demands of most 4G handsets, that’s actually impressive.

We will update this Đánh Giá next week with full battery chạy thử results.

Conclusion

There haven’t really been many choices in the 7k-8k range if you’re looking for a pocket-friendly Android phone with 4G LTE and a long-lasting battery. But now that the A7000 Plus has entered the picture, you can at least add it khổng lồ your shortcác mục. The Lenovo A7000 Plus offers good value for your money at its introductory price of only Php 7,999 for its exclusive sầu online release.
