Lenovo A6010 is now officially launched and with this Lenovo shows up with another affordable Android phone. It is expected to be a promising replacement for its predecessor Lenovo A6000. Lenovo has popped some extra computing power for better performance where the design and built has nothing new to wow the users. Lenovo has focused mainly on putting more power and features in the phone rather than gambling with its design.

After testing several new Lenovo devices successively, now we tried our hands on the Lenovo A6010.

Physical Overview

Looking at the built, Lenovo A6010 looks exactly the same that we witnessed in Lenovo A6000. The back panel carries a 13MP camera paired with a LED flash and a noice cancellation microphone below it. The new Lenovo logo is placed in the middle of the panel, where the panel has a good textured finish to grip on. Round edges and curvy back make it more serene to hold on. Twin speaker grills are placed at the bottom of the back panel with a Dolby logo between the grills (Audio powered by Dolby).  It features 5.0 inch IPS display having 1280 x 720 pixels resolution, jammed with the plastic back panel.

Its plastic built body is something that users have to compromise with, and capacitive buttons placed on the bottom of the display do not have back lid to light them up. A 3.5mm audio jack coupled with microUSB is found on the top whereas plastic made volume and power buttons are baked in the right panel. The built quality is good but it doesn’t reflects many changes if compared to its predecessors.

User Interface

The Lenovo A6010 runs on the Lenovo Vibe UI which is based on Android Lollipop 5.0.1 just like the other Lenovo smartphones announced recently. Few changes can be noticed in the icons, the app drawer is missing and this can be fixed by using any of the several launcher apps available on the Android Play Store to customise your experience.

Camera Overview

The camera UI remains the same as the Lenovo A6000 which is noticable. The device features a 13MP back camera with LED flash and a 5MP selfie camera. We clicked a couple of pictures with both the cameras and the results were remarkable. The picture clarity, colour production and details were captured just fine. Autofocus works reliable and the phone has many shooting modes and features to choose from.

Competition

It will compete with lower mid range segment phones like  Yu Yureka, Xiaomi Redmi 2 Prime, Yu Yuphoria and Asus Zenfone 2 laser.
