Lenovo Confirms Bang For The Buck A7000 Heading to PH


Another potential bang for the buck phone is coming to the Philippines

The first half of 2015 is turning out to be a great one for people who crave gadgets that have great specs at a decent price. Today, Lenovo has confirmed that they will be releasing their A7000 smartphone, first unveiled in Mobile World Congress last March in Barcelona, Spain.

Lenovo A7000 specs

  • 1.5GHz MediaTek MT6752m octa-core processor
  • 2GB RAM
  • 5.5-inch IPS HD display, 1280 x 720 resolution
  • 8GB of storage expadable via microSD up to 32GB
  • 8-megpixel rear camera
  • 5-megapixel front camera
  • Dual-SIM
  • 3G, LTE
  • WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, A-GPS
  • 2,900mAh battery
  • Dolby ATMOS surround sound
  • Android 5.0 Lollipop

The A7000 sports a 5.5-inch IPS HD display and is powered by MediaTek’s MT6752m octa-core processor paired with 2GB of RAM and 8GB of expandable storage. Like most phones in the segment, the A7000 has LTE on board.

The A7000 also has Dolby ATMOS surround sound, which makes it a good phone if you like watching movies on the go. A 2,900mAh battery rounds out the spec list.

Internationally the A7000 is priced at around $170, which comes around at Php 7.5K. Of course its price may change when it’s officially offered here because of customs and other costs, but we’re hoping that Lenovo keeps its pricing at below 8K. It looks like the Meizu M1 Note and the Firefly Intense 64 LTE now have serious competition.

  1. ano b tlga. gusto ko sana meizu or alcatel flash plus kaso boring ung design at copycat ng 5c. pero panalo din ung firefly intense 64 eh. tapos meron pa tong lenovo. ano ba tlga hahaha. nakakalito -_-

  2. Sana magkaroon ng head to head ng tatlong to. Lalo na sa Camera, Battery Life, at Benchmark ng devices.
    Pati after sales support ng mga brands na to. 😀

  3. ill go for Meizu M1 Note with 16gb onboard storage, 13mp back cam 5mp front, 3100+mah batt, and has accessories available like TG screen prot and bumper case.

  4. Lost me over at Mediatek..

    Besides sheer beastly specs everyone craves for a device, the better question is “long term support” on the software side..

    Consider the 2012 Galaxy Tab crap 2.0, which came out with Android 4.1.2, since the crap device is officially supported by Cyanogenmod, it still is very much alive and kicking on Kitkat 4.4.4 after 2.5 years

    Even the humble Redmi 1S already has Cyanogenmod 12.1 aka Lollipop 5.1 rom available..

    Now consider this device, where would OS support be for the immediate to long haul?

    1. it will almost always depend on the brand and not with the SoC, considering na mediatek is already providing sources. want solid proof?

      *cough* Android One *cough*

      among the first devices to get a 5.1 version and they are using dated mediatek SoC.

      if masyado kang OC sa software support, I highly recommend getting a flagship device from known brands, yun talaga sigurado ka.

      pero looking at the cheaper side, usually ang masa walang ka alam alam sa software, as long as the phone works as intended, so your points usually doesn’t matter 😛

  5. So zenfone2 is not in this league??? Sana sir john meron kau side by side comparison table with rating score sa 5.5 inch kada review upto 5 stars ,,, parang royal rambol ng current bang-phone and then let people vote online for the best of the bang-phone this 2015 that cost less than 10K with LTE… I think this will stir competition further to lower their cost and make consumer really think hard which one to buy within this specs…
