The Lenovo A7000 is one of the hot-selling smartphones locally for 2015.

HARDWARE AND DESIGN
There is nothing much difference when compared to the older model. It retains much of the older model’s aesthetics and design. Button and port placements remain the same too. For a smartphone with a 5.5 inch display and a 3,000 mAh battery, the device is slim and lightweight.
When we reviewed the A7000, it already had a gorgeous display. Part of the bump in specs in which the A7000 Plus now sports a Full HD display. It is now sharper and brighter with better viewing angles. Watching movies with this screen and awesome audio thanks to its Dolby ATMOS Surround Sound technology is such a joy.
SOFTWARE AND PERFORMANCE
We did not notice any change in terms of overall performance in terms of gaming and heavy multitasking. Due to our limited time with it, we were not able to get benchmark scores but we are confident that results what will be the same.
We were not able to get photos we’ve taken from the A7000 Plus. Photos we took are much better than A7000’s 8 megapixel rear camera. It has more detail, sharper and more alive.
Getting the Lenovo A7000 Plus is wiser choice now than the older model. It has a better camera, better display and bigger battery. Now choosing between the Meizu M2 Note, Alcatel Flash Plus and Lenovo A7000 Plus will be much harder.
