Lenovo A750 Review

Lenovo’s previous Android smartphone models, such as the A60 and the A65 were such big hits in the smartphone community. The excellent performance of the MT6573 processor, coupled with advanced features and very affordable prices, brought success to those phones. Now, Lenovo has released the A750, another Android smartphone with Mediatek’s latest processor, MT6575. Let’s see if it exceeds expectations.

Appearance

Lenovo has a reputation of giving their phones simple but elegant designs. Like its predecessor, A60, the Lenovo A750 has a straightforward appearance. But unlike the A60, the A750 has no physical Android navigation keys, which may be an advantage to some users who hate physical keys. The 4.0 inch, 480 x 800 resolution capacitive, multi-touch LCD screen makes viewing a great experience. Its size makes it fit easily on the pocket.

The back cover has a soft rubber surface that feels comfortable in the hand. The two volume buttons are on the left side of the phone while the camera button is on the right side. The power button is on the top.

Camera

The front camera is 0.3 megapixel. Not much but it is more than enough when you do Skype video calls. The back camera is 5 megapixels with Auto Focus. However, it has no LED flash, which is a disadvantage during dim light situations. Actually, this is one weakness of many Lenovo smartphones that I wish they would improve on.

Performance

Lenovo A750 is the first phone to use Mediatek’s  MT6575 1GHz processor. Its GPU is PowerVR SGX531 Ultra. Technically, it is not dual core but with the way MT6575 works with its GPU, the phone runs smoothly as if it was dual core. It has a RAM of 512 MB  and ROM of 4 GB. You won’t have any problems playing 3D games or running many applications at the same time. It runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread which is very stable. Recent reports state that it can be upgraded to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

Dual SIM, Dual Standby

The advantage of the MT6575 chipset is that it provides the Lenovo A750 dual SIM, dual standby capabilities, which is not common for branded android phones. This eliminates the need to carry two phones for two different SIM cards which is quite a hassle. One SIM slot is used for GSM only, while the other slot can be used for either GSM or WCDMA 3G. It supports GSM and 3G networks, with the following frequencies: GSM/GPRS/EDGE 900/1800/1900MHz and WCDMA/HSPA/HSPA+ 900/2100MHz.

Battery Life

The battery is 2000mAh, which is suitable for heavy duty usage like running many applications at the same time. With Android 2.3 Gingerbread as its OS, it has great power-saving mechanisms for lasting battery life.

Price

Cell phone shops have already sold thousands of units of this phone because of its high quality features and affordability. How much? The lowest price I found online is US$164. That’s great value for a phone with such features!

Summary

The phone’s performance, design and capabilities overshadow its one main weakness which is the lack of a LED flash. Needless to say, it is one of the most affordable mobiles with such features. Overall, the Lenovo A750 is a great Android smartphone with high-end capabilities. If you want a powerful handset but you’re on a tight budget, then this is a must-have for you.

    Hi Kris!

    I found your website and I think it is really helpful, thanks! I am considering to buy a Lenovo phone but can not decide which one: the A65 or the A750. I realized that the A750 has more RAM, but the A65 has dual core CPU.

    Which one do you consider better value for its price? And is that true that Fastcardtech ships the phones with pre-installed google apps, like gmail and google play?

    Thanks for your answer!

    Regards,

    Szabolcs from Hungary

      Hello Szabolcs!

      Thank you for your comment! First of all, I would like to clear it up that both Lenovo A65 and A750 are NOT dual core, but they work similar to dual core processors because the MT6573 (A65 CPU) and MT6575 (A750 CPU) are designed to distribute the load of processing applications among the CPU and GPU. The MT6575 processor is newer and far more superior than the MT6573. Therefore, as far as CPU is concerned, the A750 is MUCH better and faster. Also, A750 has more RAM (512 MB) which is very important when running multiple applications. The A65 only has 256 MB. So if I were to choose between the two, I’ll definitely go for Lenovo A750. It has the best value for its price.

      When you order at Fastcardtech, both the A750 and the A65 come with Google apps pre-installed, including Google Play. But to be sure, ask Fastcardtech. They always answer customers’ questions within a few hours. Leave a message at Fastcardtech by clicking here for Lenovo A750 or here for Lenovo A65.

      I hope I helped in your decision.

      Best of luck,

      Kris

    Don’t buy this phone for USA use. I got one and the phone call signal was 1 bar or none o the AT&T sim. Yes, tried sim card in other phone and card/phone worked great, just not the A750.

    1. Kris Amora

      Sorry for your experience. Maybe your phone has a factory defect. I wonder if other US users of the Lenovo A750 have the same problem. Anyway, try to have your unit replaced by the seller if it is still under warranty.

    Signal problem here too which have had several blackberries, Nokias and other brands no problem as close to tower. One to zero bars with this phone on Rogers which is similar to ATT. A shame that the most important feature that is being a phone works from weak to not at all or somewhere in between…..

    Very dissapointed.

    1. Kris Amora

      It seems Lenovo A750 has a problem with US networks. Try updating your firmware. Maybe it would fix the problem.

  4. Irekk

    In my opinion A750 has not the 1900Mhz frequency which is in US (I had the same problem with my dual band Alcatel only 900 and 1800Mhz), the similar lenovo phones which have 1900Mhz there are: A780 and A789

    1. Kris Amora

      Lenovo A750 supports only WCDMA 900/2100 MHz. That may be the reason why it has a problem with US networks. I think the A789 is also WCDMA 2100 MHz only.

        does lenovo a750 is available to the phillipines ? how much ? thanks

        1. Kris Amora

          Hi! Lenovo A750 is not available officially in the Philippines. But you can buy it online. I think you can find many local resellers selling this phone online.

    1. Kris Amora

      Hi! Lenovo A750 does not have a magnetic sensor so it is not compatible with compass apps. Sorry but I am not familiar with Tab A1.

    Hi Chris
    I’m interested to know if there is an option to Hebrew language settings of the phone
    Thank you

    1. Kris Amora

      Hi! The phone has no built-in Hebrew language. But you can install Hebrew language by installing custom ROMs if you root the phone.
