This is a typical Lenovo device with regular curve shaped body. Lenovo phones always look good, so you would find this device too appealing to handle. Coming to display, Lenovo A7000 Turbo has 5.5 inch FHD (1920X1080 resolution @401 ppi) OGS IPS 5-point multi touch display. With 72% screen to body ratio and 178 degree viewing angles, this display would give you amazing quality with touch sensitivity, vivid color production, appropriate brightness and viewing angles. At the given price bracket, 1080p screen would be an asset for this device. Coming to dimensions, Lenovo A7000 Turbo measures 76.2 mm x 152.6 mm x 8 mm and weights 150 grams in hand. So, this device is thinner and lighter as well.
Under the hood, Lenovo A7000 Turbo features 1.7 GHz 64-bit Octa-core MediaTek MT6752 (Cortex-A53). With 2 GB RAM and 16 GB flash storage which can be expandable up to 32 GB, this device runs Vibe UI 2.0 based on Android Lollipop v5.0. These are some nice core specs. With it’s octa-core processor, this device would handle your multi-tasking, high end processing and gaming also very well without any hitches. You can also store your multi media content in this device as it’s storage is expandable. At the given price bracket, its chipset is another asset for this device without a doubt.
