For starters, the A6000 Plus has a 5-inch IPS LCD display. It’s a standard HD resolution at 720×1280 pixels that gives a reasonably sharp 294ppi. We’ve noticed that outdoor visibility seems to be okay as long you’re under a shade. Aside from the display, the front panel has the earpiece, front-facing camera, sensors, and three capacitive buttons.

The volume rocker and power/lock button are located at the right side of the device while the left side is virtually clean. The top houses the 3.5mm jack and the micro-USB port leaving nothing at the bottom, except for a mic pinhole.

Heading to the back will show the rear camera with the LED flash and another mic pinhole for noise-cancelling. There’s a distinct Lenovo branding at the middle while the speaker grille and Dolby logo is situated below. Interestingly, there are two grilles but we’re not yet sure if it’s a stereo setup. We’ll get into that with our review.

The back cover is removable to give access to the 2300mAh battery, two micro-SIM card slots, and the microSD card slot for memory expansion. Overall, the whole build of the Lenovo smartphone is solid, although it’s a bit light on hand due to the plastic material used. The back panel has a matte finish and is good in resisting nasty smudges.

The rear camera has a megapixel count of 8, a usual number for budget smartphones. While it is early to say about the quality, it seems pretty decent given that the environment is well-lit. You may check out two samples below.

The device boots Android 4.4.4 KitKat with Vibe UI 2.0 out of the box with a Lollipop update already waiting. Our review unit is already downloading the update so rest assured we will have the latest software available.
