Lenovo A680 Review

Lenovo A680 is a phone for those who have their hands tied over money and they want the maximum power they can get in their phone from that money. Lenovo A680 is a very decent phone at this and some might actually be astonished how Lenovo has accomplished so much in so less.


Design

You really can’t expect state of the art built and design on a phone that costs less than 10,000 INR. But, the Lenovo A680 does a very good job at being not as plastic as the Samsung models. They have developed their built quality and the result is pretty nice. It won’t sooth your heart but it won’t wow you as well. Lenovo A680 has a relatively thin body but the large size kills it’s cause.

Display

Lenovo A680 does not have the best of smartphone displays. Lenovo A680 has a 5 inch 480p display. It is vaguely nice but the detailing is really off from where it is actually supposed to be. The display is just too pixelated for my liking. Viewing angles are not that good and the glass is easily damageable. But the large display for such a low cost can do wonders for people. They can enjoy entertainment on this larger display and be happy about it.

Camera

You get a 5MP camera on the back of the phone. It is a very satisfactory customer. Lenovo A680’s camera does not produce wonders in it’s range but they are good enough to share over the social media. Take your selfies from the rear camera only because the front camera is just not right. The camera interface is not too great. Lenovo A680’s video taking capability is not good as well.

Software

The user interface on the Lenovo A680 is nothing too grand. A very simply UI that can take you through the phone easily and as it is over Android you get a lot of cusomtization and hold on how you can represent this user interface in your way. It is easy to toggle through the basic settings and you get notifications right in. Lenovo A680 runs over the Android v4.2.2 Jelly Bean.

Performance

With a 1.3 GHz Quad Core processor and 1GB RAM you can expect great performance from your Lenovo A680. The battery life is poor but the speed is pretty nice. It is not as smooth as XOLO’s Q800 but surely has it’s own awe. You get 3G support and WiFi. You do not get Bluetooth. Lenovo A680 is a really good phone to have as it’s benchmarks are pretty high up.
