Together with the Lenovo S90 and the Lenovo P70, the budget oriented Lenovo A5000 was also launched last time at the City of Dreams. It's an entry level phone that has HUGE battery capacity at 4,000 mAh like the P70 and has decent specifications for its asking price. Surprisingly it is also not as heavy and thick as some other 4,000 mAh powered phones. We were able to get hold of it for a few minutes and here's our quick hands on.
