We compiled an in-depth review of Lenovo A5's battery, camera, CPU specs, etc. We also covered Lenovo A5's grip, portability, and screen quality.

Features, Performance, and Reviews for the Lenovo A5

The camera function of Lenovo A5

The Lenovo A5 has a 13 MP main camera that lets you take photos and videos in a quite high resolution. You may be a little dissatisfied with it in some situations, for example when you want to capture scenery in very high resolution or print out beautiful photos, but this should not be an issue you run into very often.

The Lenovo A5 comes with a 8 MP pixel camera, which is a standard level. It's perfectly fine for selfies, but may be not as satisfying if you wish to take photos of large numbers of people, or make printouts.

The battery performance of Lenovo A5

The Lenovo A5 has a battery with a quite large capacity of 4000 mAh. Compared to other smartphones, the battery life of the Lenovo A5 is very good and will no doubt satisfy all your needs. You won't have to worry about the battery even when you use the phone to watch videos or play games for hours on end.

The CPU performance of Lenovo A5

The processing power of the Lenovo A5 is, at 1.5GHz×4(Quad core), relatively high. Its features would position it somewhere between high and mid-level among currently available smartphones, but it will be rather stress-free in terms of using most apps. Most 3D games that don't burn up too much memory should be playable to a satisfying degree for the most part. 2D games should be no problem at all.

The Lenovo A5 has 3GB of RAM, so it has plenty of space. In rare cases this amount of RAM might not be sufficient, but there shouldn't be too much stress on the machine with this amount.

The overall operational speed of the Lenovo A5 rates as a mid-range smartphone. While you will probably not experience much sluggishness or lag with normal use, we recommend a phone at least one tier higher if you want to enjoy games or videos.

Lenovo A5's storage capacity

The Lenovo A5 has 32GB of data storage, which is plenty for taking photos, but for people who frequently shoot videos or have lots of games installed, this may not feel like enough space.

Since the Lenovo A5 is compatible with SD cards, you'll be able to easily expand your storage capacity; you won't need to worry about how much internal space it has.

Lenovo A5's size

The Lenovo A5 is 2.8 inches (70.9 mm) wide, 5.8 inches (146.2 mm) tall, and 0.4 inches (9.8 mm) thick. I can just barely use it with one hand, so it may feel big to some people. In the case of the Lenovo A5, it weighs about 160 oz (160 g). The weight is such that it's hardly noticeable even when using one-handed. However, some people may find it tiring to use for long periods.

In giving an overall rating to the Lenovo A5, while it may be slightly difficult to hold, it shouldn't be much of a problem when considering its general strengths and weaknesses.

Lenovo A5's screen

The Lenovo A5 has a 5.45 inch screen. The smartphone has a large, impressive screen, which allows you to enjoy photos and videos to the fullest. It is also very good for writing business documents and doing other work.

The resolution of the Lenovo A5's screen is pretty much standard. It shouldn't be a problem for normal use, but it might prove to be a bit dissatisfying for those who wish to better enjoy their photos, videos, or games.

Overall assessment of Lenovo A5

The Lenovo A5 is a relatively high-performance smartphone. If you plan to use it as your main smartphone, you may find it slightly inconvenient, but within tolerable limits.
