Lenovo A6000 Can we buy

 Can We Buy IT

 Build Quality
Lenovo has decided to play safe with the design of the A6000. The phone has a regular candybar shape that is a staple feature of Android smartphones now. The A6000's utilitarian design is not necessarily a bad thing considering Lenovo has done a good job of creating nice rounded edges and restricting the thickness to 8.2mm. An added advantage is the phone's low weight of 128g, which makes it comfortable for single-handed usage. Our only gripe is with the build quality of the rear cover - it felt flimsy, and it is quite possible that the plastic will give way after prolonged use.Talking about rear covers, buyers will get the black one by default. Lenovo has promised replaceable rear covers in three different colours - red, yellow and white - which should be available in the near future. The black rear cover has a smooth matte finish which feels good to touch
The volume rocker and the power button are on the right edge of the phone. A lone microphone for phone calls sits at the bottom whereas the top houses the Micro-USB port and the 3.5mm audio jack. The front camera and the earpiece are located above the display. Lenovo includes a row of buttons below the screen for navigation through the OS. The rear camera, flash, and microphone for video capture lie on the top right corner of the A6000. Also present on the rear are two speakers with a Dolby logo sandwiched in between them. Removing the rear cover reveals the battery, two slots for Micro-SIM cards, and the microSD card slot.
The 5-inch IPS LCD screen has a resolution of 720x1280, which is the maximum one can find on budget smartphones. At first glance, the screen does look vibrant but that is mainly due to the colourful Vibe UI Android skin. We noticed that increasing the brightness caused the colours to look slightly washed out, which in turn affected sunlight legibility. The viewing angles are passable. The 294ppi density of the display means images and text look crisp. Lenovo hasn't used protective glass on the display of the A6000 which is a bit of a letdown. Instead, the company provides a screen guard in the box, which is not really a substitute but is better than nothing. Overall, we still think the Redmi 1S has a better screen, but the A6000 comes a close second. 
Specifications and software
Lenovo has packed the latest 64-bit Snapdragon 410 SoC inside the A6000. It is a 1.2GHz quad-core processor with integrated Adreno 306 GPU. The phone has 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage space. In case the 8GB space doesn't suffice, one can add up to 32GB more using a microSD card. 

We believe Lenovo has pulled out all the stops to assemble an impressive budget smartphone. The A6000 succeeds in many aspects and we are particularly pleased with its battery life, Dolby speakers, future-proofing in the form of a 64-bit processor, and support for 4G networks. This is not to say the A6000 is without flaws; the display could have had protective glass and the cameras could have been better.The discontinued Xiaomi Redmi 1S , Motorola Moto E  and the Huawei Honor Holly  are its closest competitors. The recently discounted Asus Zenfone 5 is also a good alternative to consider, especially since Lenovo is selling the A6000 only through flash sales on Flipkart.
