Lenovo A516 Grey - Expert Reviews


Lenovo marches on and continues to expand its smartphone lineup as its domain of mobiles get bigger and more powerful. A few years back there were not many players in the game of mobile manufacturing but today, we see a new entrant coming every season. The market seems to be unstoppable as far as the demand for smartphones are concerned and therefore, there is no reason for a related product manufacturing company to resist this market. So, Lenovo is not too affected by a rather lukewarm response it got for its previous smartphones and has brought forth Lenovo A516. Lenovo A516 is an Android Jelly Bean 4.2 OS running smartphone that boasts of a 4.5-inch IPS LCD display triggered by a resolution of 854 by 480 pixels and gives a wide 178-degree viewing angle without any reflection. The looks of the smartphone is fabulous with well-polished back panel and a neatly designed front end.

The smartphone comes with a length of 133mm, breadth of 66.78mm and thickness of 9.95mm. The user can keep two GSM SIMs activated in the device at the same time with the help of the dual SIM facility. The camera department of the device looks satisfactory with a 5-megapixel primary camera and a VGA secondary camera. The feature of LED flash is absent but auto focus and zoom are provided. The rear camera works at a resolution of 2592 by 1944 pixels whereas the secondary camera has 640 by 480 pixels of resolution for aid. The user can keep a volume of contents in the device with the help of the microSD card slot that can enhance the external memory up to 32GB. As far as the built-in memory is concerned, the device is packed with 4GB storage, which is still a healthy number on its own.

RAM is of 512MB and we would have loved another 512MB but in any case, the device would still run without much glitch. The RAM complements the 1.3GHz dual core processor well and makes up for a decent smartphone that does multitasking very well. Not too much is to complain in the internet department with the presence of Wi-Fi, GPRS, EDGE, and WAP browser providing reasonable performance. Downloading of data is not snappy as at times, the speed is compromised when the buffering speed is on the higher side. USB port and Bluetooth are also vital to the connectivity segment. The device operates at two frequency bands of 900MHz and 1800MHz respectively. For all the features to be enjoyed the power backup has to be vigorous and the 2000mAh standard lithium-ion battery just pulls it off by providing a substantial amount of usage time with the smartphone.

Operating system and UI

Lenovo A516 bags a 4.5-inch IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen that boasts of a resolution of 854 by 480 pixels. The gadget provides a 178 degree of wide viewing angle that enables the user to watch videos and images, reflection free.

Other Features

Lenovo A516 has lots for the user to be hooked on in the multimedia department with a music player that is capable of creating a personalized reservoir of songs and can be heard as and when desired through the earphones or the loudspeakers. The quality of the latter is questionable at high volume but the former is very good. Videos can be watched too with the 4.5 IPS display that gives a pleasant experience. FM Radio is another source for listening to music courtesy the local radio stations.


Lenovo A516 sports a 5-megapixel rear camera that can be used for seizing images at a resolution of 2592 by 1944 pixels with befitting quality. No flash is present but auto focus is an important feature that aids the shutter. Secondary camera is not heavy on pixels with VGA strength that permits web calling and web chatting facilities. 


Lenovo A516 at a general level provides all the basic internet support like GPRS, EDGE and WAP browser along with Wi-Fi. What would have really made this segment exciting is the presence of Wi-Fi tethering features like Wi-Fi hot spot or DLNA, which are absent. Nonetheless, the user can visit websites like Facebook and Twitter with much ease.


512MB RAM is not the ideal space that one would desire for but is what Lenovo A516 has to offer. Internal memory is of 4GB, which is padded up nicely by the 32GB microSD card slot for further storage of data including songs, games, images, and videos.

Other Features

Lenovo A516 has quite a few games that come pre-installed in the gadget like Angry Birds and Fruit Ninja, while other games like Commando and F1 Race can be downloaded from the web via Google Play Store, an application that is pre-installed in the gadget. The user can also access applications like WhatsApp and Viber.


Lenovo A516 is bestowed with a 2000mAh standard lithium-ion battery that does well overall but leaves some room for improvement in the talk time department. Standby time is healthy and same is the case with music play time.


Lenovo A516 is compatible with a USB port and Bluetooth along with Wi-Fi and GPRS. So considering the former two, the user has a lot of options when it comes to data exchange activities. For both the GSM SIMs, Lenovo A516 has two frequency bands to work with namely, 900MHz and 1800MHz.

Other Features

Lenovo A516 when compared to XOLO Q600 has an identical screen size with 4.5 inches but the former has a much denser look in terms of pixel strength with higher pixel density for Lenovo A516. The camera department is also identical in terms of pixel strength for both the smartphones with a 5-megapixel primary camera and a VGA secondary camera. Although, the RAM is 512MB for both the smartphones, XOLO Q600 is a faster device overall. This is because of the fact that Lenovo A516 has 1.2GHz dual core processor whereas XOLO Q600 has 1.2GHz quad core processor. Both the devices support dual SIM facility while the battery strength is the same with 2000mAh. However, XOLO Q600 has a longer standby time and talk time as compared to Lenovo A516.

Other Features
