Lenovo has recently launched the A6000 Plus on our shores with a sub-7k price tag. It’s closest sibling, the A7000 Plus, which is a localized version of the K3 Note, is just a thousand buck more expensive. What are the cuts done to get a cheaper SRP? Check out the tablet below:

Obviously, the A6000 Plus has a smaller display at 5″ vs 5.5″ and the resolution received a downgrade to 720p. It also carries a different, less powerful chipset but retains 2GB of RAM. Internal storage is also the same at 16GB. Another cut is found with the rear camera since it now has an 8-megapixel sensor and a single LED flash with a 2-megapixel selfie camera.

Aside from the hardware, Lenovo also demoted the Android software to Android 4.4.4 KitKat out of the box but the Lollipop update is readily available (although it’s a hefty download). The sound enhancement is also now just Dolby Digital Plus rather than Dolby Atmos. Yet, the A6000 Plus has twin speakers at the back.

To offer the A6000 Plus for Php 6,999 with the A7000 Plus lying around for just Php 7,999, we’d say the cuts are not worth it. Still, we’re currently working on the review of the A6000 Plus, so stay tuned if the device can hold up on its own.
