Unboxing Lenovo A7000
The box comes in a regular white and red rectangular package. There goes the shiny stickers for the service and warranty assurance, and for the back cover and film freebie inside. At the back, you should see the approval and compliance under NTC standards, and of course the short specifications description of the A7000.
Opening the box reveals the A7000 upfront, and taking out the rest will present the USB cable, charger, earphones, the 2900mAh battery, short guides, warranty details, after sales card, and the free screen protector and translucent back cover.
Holding the A7000 definitely says that you’re handed with a colossal handset, though it doesn’t weigh down your hands cause it’s only 140 grams. Peeling off the film cover presents the A7000’s display. You can see the front 5MP cam and the receiver on top, plus the light sensor for gauging light density from the environment and the light indicator that is used for notifications.
Below the display marks the capacitive buttons, which unfortunately doesn’t light up. So, you should remember that the back button is on your right and the menu is on the left side of the home button, which is smacked on the middle. The 5.5-inch display is actually embedded on and held together with a hard plastic rim. However, the plastic back cover is the one that extends enough on the sides to support the phone as a whole.
Flipping it back, you’ll see the 8-megapixel camera on its top left with a LED flash below. The pinhole on the top-right takes care of noise cancellation with the speaker grill just a bit pushed down below it. And tilting it pushed towards your right gets you a clear view of the volume controls and the power button. On the same side, down below a corner is a gap to open the back cover. The mic pinhole is also placed just beside the gap.
