Here is a detailed review of the phone. Lenovo A7000 has given a healthy competition to the sony mobiles Xperia Z5, Zperia Ultra and Z3. Where Z3 is a great z series phone with almost same features and it is a good alternative for this mobile.
DESIGN AND DISPLAY
Despite being a large phone, it is quite light in weight which is only of 140 grams. The plastic body is flat on the back makes it a bit difficult to hold. The screen has a lot of bezel on it that you can easily expect from a budget phone. The bottom of the screen is lined with the three capacitive touch buttons.
It has 5.5-inch IPS capacitive touchscreen with a display resolution of 720x1280 pixels and density of 267 ppi. The screen is good for a budget phone with high-contrast and realistic colors. Moreover, the big screen is perfect for watching movies and playing games.
PERFORMANCE AND CONFIGURATION
It has a MediaTek MT6752m processor with an Octa Core 1.53 GHz CPU. It has a Mali-T760MP2 GPU, which gives an excellent and snappy performance.

CAMERA AND MULTIMEDIA
The primary camera on the phone is of 8 MP with a f/2.2 sensor. It has autofocus and dual LED flash feature, but there is nothing fancy about it. It captures photos that are fine but not great. The secondary camera is of 5 MP that takes decent selfies and is good for Skype and video calling.
BATTERY AND CONNECTIVITY
With a 2900 mAh battery, you get a 3G standby time of 263 hours and a talk time of 16 hours. Despite the big screen, the internals of the phone aren’t power hungry, and you will be able to get at least 2 days’ worth of power from the phone.
