Lenovo A5 Specs and Review in 2020

Lenovo released the Lenovo A5 sometime in the 2nd quarter of 2018 as an entry-level smartphone which came with good features at a low price. The huge battery it had alongside fast charging was one of the top-selling points for the phone. Apart from the charging and battery aspect, the phone came with modest specs good for an entry-level smartphone. In this article, I’ll be doing a review about the Lenovo A5 telling you if it is still a good buy in 2020.

Design and Body

Being an entry-level smartphone, the Lenovo A5 has a full plastic body. Choosing a plastic body was Lenovo way of cutting costs to make the phone really cheap. The phone is really thick with it having a thickness of 9.8mm, it is quite light with it weighing 160 grams. The phone is really compact so if you like compact phones you’ll enjoy it. At the rear, you’ll find the camera and the fingerprint sensor which secures the phone.



The phone display still shows that it is an entry-level smartphone. The Lenovo A5 sports a 5.45 inches IPS LCD display with an HD+ resolution of 720×1440 pixels and 295 PPI density. The phone does have an 18:9 aspect ratio which makes it have reduced bezels at the top and bottom. Don’t expect a sharp and crisp display like the Samsung Galaxy S9, this is an entry-level smartphone.
