To be honest, the Lenovo A7000 appears to be a far superior device than the original Moto E. It comes with a large 5.5-inch HD touch display, a 64-bit processor, a better camera and will run on Android 5.0 Lollipop with Lenovo's Vibe UI on top.

Lenovo is calling the A7000 as the "mass flagship device", thanks to its insanely powerful specs and features. The device will be available from April 15 exclusively via Flipkart at Rs. 8,999, and registrations for the device have begun on Tuesday itself.
The Moto E is still a fantastic device, and with the Android 5.0 Lollipop, you may think twice to upgrade to the Lenovo A7000.
Still, it would be stupidity not to look at a few reasons to upgrade to the Lenovo A7000.
It has a 5.5-inch Screen
Unlike the 4.3-inch qHD (960 x 540) display on the Moto E (no more available for purchase), the Lenovo A7000 comes with a 5.5-inch HD screen. The bigger screen on the Lenovo A7000 means that you will get far better gaming and a better browsing experience.
The Moto E users have had comfortably adopted the 4-inch screen, so they might not be so used to a large screen device. But if you're willing to try, then the extra screen size will be worth it.
Oh, it has more powerful Processor
There are a lot of benefits of having a power handset. Websites will load fast, and with an improved graphics processor, you'll get to experience the best-looking Android games on a mobile device.
The Lenovo A7000 sports a 64-bit 1.5 GHz octa-core processor from Mediatek coupled with 2GB DDR3 RAM. So the A7000 is a superfast handset that can just about compete with any other Android handset in the same price range.
It has a better camera
The camera has been improved in the Lenovo A7000, though you might not realize it if you simply look at the spec sheet. There's an 8-megapixel camera on the back side, and a 5-megapixel fixed-focus shooter on the front. The A7000 tops out at 1080p, which will be fine for the majority of people.
In comparison, the Moto E's main 5-megapixel shooter cannot take decent photos. On the video side, you can only shoot video at 854 x 480 pixel resolution, which is not really high enough by today's standards.
World's First Smartphone Dolby Atmos Tech
The Lenovo A7000 also offers fantastic sound, as it is the first handset to be equipped with Dolby's new surround sound tech for mobile.
According to Lenovo, "Users will immediately hear the Dolby Atmos difference using headphones: sounds of people, places, things, and music become more vivid and move from all directions, including overhead, with astonishing clarity, richness and depth. Voices and noises have a broader range from highs to lows, with the greatest subtlety. The technology also makes playback volume more consistent across all types of content."
It comes with a 2900mAh Battery
Battery life has always been a concern for smartphone buyers, in general. With such advance features and powerful hardware, smartphones are lacking in terms of battery life. However, in case of the Lenovo A7000, you shouldn't be worried. The device has a 2900mAh battery fitted inside. Notably, the battery is user replaceable, which is great news for those who always wanted their cell phones to last
It offers 4G LTE connectivity
Connectivity options on the Lenovo A7000 include Cat 4 LTE. The handset will support the 4G bands in India. On the other hand, the Moto E doesn't support the LTE connectivity, something many current Moto E owners griped about with the first-generation offering.
With the A7000, Lenovo is offering a well designed handset with some significant upgrades, such as a larger display, a 64-bit processor, Android 5.0 Lollipop, better cameras, 4G LTE connectivity and more for Rs. 8,999.
