The phone sports a 4.0-inch screen that showcases 480x800 pixels in resolution with a 231 pixels-per-inch pixel density. Its multitouch feature can support up to 2 fingers at a time. There is nothing special about the screen, but it’s what you could expect from an entry level phone with its price range.
The phone runs with a 1.3 GHz quad-core processor paired with 1 GB of RAM. It can get all the basic applications running smoothly and could manage to run a good number of apps all at the same time. It can also carry enough applications, documents, and multimedia files with its 8GB internal memory which is expandable up to 32GB via microSD slot.
The phone is equipped with a 5MP rear camera and VGA front camera. The camera feature is good enough to provide clear and vivid pictures that are social media worthy. It camera is plain and simple as the phone itself.
The best thing about this phone that makes it way ahead of the entry level competition is its preinstalled Android OS. While most entry level phones lag behind with just 4.4.4 KitKat on board, the Lenovo A1000 is steps ahead in the game with its preinstalled Android 5.0 Lollipop making it future proof.
A 2000mAh non-removable battery comes with the Lenovo A1000. With the phones specification coupled with this battery, it is guaranteed to last a day with just a single charge even with intensive use.
Just like any other basic smartphones, this phone can do pretty much everything that an Android device could, but only with a set of limit in terms of processing power. However, it can show a lot of efficiency when it comes to the basics, giving its user a smooth and seamless experience in running basic apps such as Facebook, web browser, multimedia player, and basic communication tools. This phone may not be a power player, but you can’t expect to get one in the entry level market. The Lenovo A1000 does not flaunt a lot of power, but it can give its users a seamless experience when it comes to the things that greatly matter.
