Description

The Lenovo A Plus offers standard low-end fare. Its 4.5-inch display chugs out a very lowly 480 x 854 resolution, while MediaTek's 1.3 GHz MT6580 chip along with one gig of RAM is about as frugal as it gets. The 8 GB storage isn't much to work with either, but thankfully, Lenovo has gone to the trouble of including microSD support. The 2000 mAh battery is quite small when compared even with moderately-stocked smartphones on the market.
