Lenovo smartphones usually hit the mid-range or entry-level market and this is the case here. Lenovo A6600 Plus is a good example of an entry-level smartphone with its price of $150. It has a 5″ display with HD resolution and is thick 8.8mm. The phone is comfortable to hold in hand and easy to use with one hand. Chipset located here is MediaTek MT6735P often found in these devices, along with Quad-core 1.0 GHz Cortex-A53 CPU, which isn’t that powerful, so don’t expect much from your multitasking. Gaming here will not be great either, with Mali-T720MP2 GPU, that can handle only low-demanding games.
The camera here is a big disappointment, with its 8 MP at the back of the phone and 2 MP at the front. It doesn’t show any impressive nor good performance, especially in the low-light conditions. Thankfully, it has a LED flash, which makes it just a little better, but not significantly.

I bought it at a price lower than $150 and it works great. Lenovo A6600 Plus might not be the greatest budget smartphone because of low RAM and 1.0 GHz CPU but i was quite surprised to see how well it performed regardless of its hardware. A good choice for those with tight budget.
