Lenovo A6000 Design & Look
This Android phone has no unique design, it has rectangular form, plastic shell and rounded corners. The good thing is that if you are bored with look, you can change back cover (you must buy it separately) and select some other color (red or white). The rest of the phone will be black, because it is the only color available. At the front of the phone are 2MP camera, for video calls and Skype calls, placed near earpiece, and a 5 inch display. It has resolution of 720x1920p. The good sides of this display are excellent viewing and good colors, but touch response is slightly slower than we expected. Below the display are three navigation buttons with the nice touch response.
On the right side of the phone are volume and power keys. They are very responsive and easy to use. At the top are 3.5mm jack for headset and micro-USB port. At the back is 8MP, main camera, with LED flash. SIM-card and SD card slot are under the back cover.
Dimensions are 141 x 70 x 8.2 mm and it has only 128g of weight, which makes using this phone easy, even with one hand.
Dimensions and weight are best virtues of this phone.
The Hardware Specifications:
Although A6000 is the cheapest 4G smartphone, it hardware is very good. It is powered by a 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor, 64-bit of course, and it has 1GB of RAM. The GPU is Adreno 306. Storage space is 8GB but you can increase it with SD card up to 32GB. This phone comes with two SIM cards support 4G LTE connectivity, FDD 1800MHz and TDD 2300MHz. But, only one SIM card can support 3G and 4G, second one cannot support. All popular connectivity options are available and Bluetooth 4.0 is now present. For people who likes phones with good speakers, this is good news, because it has dual speakers.
8MP back camera with resolution of 3264 x 2448 pixels, autofocus and LED flash is very good in bright light but in dark places it is not so impressive. Features that this camera support are: Geo-tagging, touch focus and face detection. Front camera is 2MP but it is only good in bright light, in dark places it makes bad photos.
Under the back cover is 2300 mAH battery, which can provide 22 hours of talking (2G), 13hours (3G) and 264 hours on 2G-3G (in standby mode). Lenovo phones always had good and long-lasting batteries, so A6000 has one too. But, using Wi-Fi and music player will reduce standby time.

Lenovo A6000 OS, Apps & Software:
A6000 runs Android 4.4 KitKat with Lenovo’s Vibe UI 2.0 custom interface (offer theme support and comes with utility app from Lenovo). Default UI has app drawer and app icon, while widgets are spread across home screens. It is very easy to use, and even new to the Android will have an easier time learning it. If you don’t like something it is simple to change almost every part of the UI, so you can make this phone as you like it.
Latest KitKat comes with some new improvements. It has Immersive mode, it is used to maximize application that you are using and remove status bar of the screen. It is especially useful in e-book reading or playing some game. New Caller ID is impressive. The dialer has a search field where you can look for business contact listing in Google Maps. Also, when you have an unknown caller ID, phone will try to identify it by checking the number with Google Maps. Hangout app is updated so now it supports SMS, MMS and HD Video calls. Also, you can see your Hangout messages in standard message app. Two new sensors are available, step counter and step detector. System-Wide Closed Captioning is also available and it is easy to use. You only need to select language and text size. For the first time when you are listening music, phone will lock the screen and show full background picture and music player controls. Other improvements are: Better memory management, Improved Google Now, Cloud integration and Printing on I go.
Older integration like: Facebook, Twitter, Active noise cancellation with dedicated mic, Photo/video editor and Document viewer are also available.
New KitKat is just amazing. You will be satisfied owner of this smartphone.
The Verdict of Lenovo A6000 Review:
The new Lenovo A6000 is very good phone if you are an average user. Hardware is enough for standard apps, but for ‘’massive’’ multitasking and some high-requirements games is not. Design is standard, so if you want unique phone this is not for you. But if you want a good phone, cheap and reliable you could buy it. It is the cheapest 4G phone in India with a price of Rs.6999. Build quality is also very good, but I don’t think it is very durable. Best sides of this phone are: weight (which makes it very easy to use), new KitKat is magnificent (with this improvement is maybe the best mobile OS on the market, and with future updates it will be even better) and battery is better than on most rivals. Drawbacks are: front camera, display (not so good in dark places) and for the new apps, and apps that will be available on the Google Play, hardware will not be enough. But when we see a price we can say that this is a great price-quality phone, and with four stars I am recommending buying of it.
