Held at the Romulo Cafe in Makati, Lenovo executives were keen on showing us their newest and most affordable phablet. While the looks hasn’t changed and it still has the Dolby Atmos tech, the A7000 Plus features modest upgrades with significant impact on user experience.
First, it has a better display. It has the same size at 5.5 inches, but has better resolution at 1080p. The processor also received a boost, clocked slightly faster at 1.7 GHz, along with the RAM (now 2GB), storage (at 16GB) and camera (13MP).
