- Dual sim with CDMA support, Great battery
- Completely Outdated Specs
- not a good buy unless you need a dual sim CDMA phone.
The Lenovo A600e is one of the older generation Lenovo phones. The specs of the phone and it’s price tag make it a rather odd one in the market. The only plus on this phone is that it has dual sim slots with one of the supporting CDMA, then again it’s only for a minority as CDMA phones are pretty much obsolete in the market right now.
Design and Build:
The phone looks so outdated and bland that you’ll probably never ever pick this phone if you went just by design. Since it’s one of the older Lenovo phones the build quality is rather flimsy. The phone is rather thick at 11.9mm for a 4 inch phone and weighs over 160 grams , so it feels heavy.
The phone has a 5 MP rear camera , with no flash. There is no secondary camera either. You can just click pictures on the go, and that’s just about it. Don’t expect high quality pictures
The A600e has an 4 inch 480p ( WVGA) TFT LCD display. Considering all the tech used in the phone, at least it has capacitive touch instead of resistive. The TFT screen means the pictures and color reproduction won’t be accurate at all times. TFT also has the worst viewing angles among all LCD panels.
The phone is powered by a Snapdragon 1GHz dual core chip, which is enough to run it fine, since the phone runs on Ice cream sandwich ( Android 4.0.4). The 512 mb ram is too low, but then again for the initial few days the phone will run smooth and gradually the apps will bog down the phone. The phone has 4 GB of internal storage which seems way too low right now, but has an SD card slot to expand up to 32 gigs.
The A600e comes with Android 4.0.4 which is really outdated, but the hardware specifications of the phone mean that this is the best the phone can run and you should probably never try to update the OS.
The battery is probably the best feature of the phone. The phone has a massive 2500 mAh battery, even though it may not seem massive anymore, for a phone so old and of this size the battery is huge. The huge battery on this tiny phone with such low hardware means the battery life is really impressive.
The Lenovo A600e is right now an outdated device with its only buying point being the CDMA sim support. The price of the phone and the hardware it provides for the same is ridiculous, because if you spend about the same you could get a Redmi 2 Prime which is vaguely 4 times better than this phone (at least the RAM is
