Lenovo A5 is a solid addition to the catalogue of mobile offerings and is distinct in the sense that it’s been put in the market not to break new ground, but to disrupt the grip of competitors like Xiaomi and Realme on the segment of budget smartphones. Below we have listed some of the pros and cons of the phone:
– The full-screen display is a pretty good value for money. Given the price bracket of the phone, the phone offers the trending full-screen display with 18:9 aspect ratio. Overall, the phone features a 5.45-inch HD+ IPS LCD display with 720 x 1440 pixels resolution, meaning that it’s pretty solid in the display department although it’s not something that will appeal to people who like to watch movies on fancier screens.
– The battery life of Lenovo A5 is quite impressive. Although it is not equipped with fast charging support, it’s a 4000mAh battery and should comfortably hold up for around a day depending on the user’s usage.
– Weighing in at just 160 grams, Lenovo A5’s design and built is both light and comfortable from an ergonomics perspective. It should make it quite the compact companion for those who don’t like to have a handful when it comes to phones.
– The old chipset used is entry-level at best, not being able to deal with a host of heavy functions which shouldn’t come as a surprise considering the phone’s price range. While the phone shall perform satisfactorily when tasked with prosaic tasks, it will hang a bit and also experience a bit of heating if one tries to run rather heavy applications, like a loaded game for instance.
– The camera performance of Lenovo A5 under low-light is found to be lacking. Even though it is equipped with LED flash support, the overall make-up of the camera means that one isn’t supposed to expect too much from it and it is bound to overwhelm under tricky situations, case in point when the lighting is low.
– As mentioned earlier, the battery of this phone might be huge but it hasn’t been equipped with fast-charging, which means that it will take a good 3 or 4 hours before it has charged up.
