Lenovo A6000 vs Redmi 1S India price and specs
The Lenovo A6000 has recently burst on to the smartphone market in India, and one of its natural competitors right now is the Xiaomi Redmi 1S as they are similarly priced. The Redmi 1S has seen huge popularity in flash sales and recently the new A6000 sold out extremely quickly in a flash sale on Flipkart. Today we have a Lenovo A6000 vs. Redmi 1S India price and specs showdown.
These are both Android dual SIM devices, but the Lenovo A6000 benefits from LTE connectivity which the slightly cheaper Redmi 1S does not have. We’ll compare the key specs and more so that you can see what they offer and which might be the best choice for you.
The Lenovo A6000 has a 1.2GHz Snapdragon 410 quad-core processor and Adreno 306 graphics. The Xiaomi Redmi 1S has a 1.6GHz Snapdragon 400 quad-core CPU and Adreno 305 GPU.

RAM and Storage
There’s nothing to split them here as both phones have 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage that’s expandable via microSD.
There’s not too much between them here either. Both have an 8-megapixel rear camera with autofocus and LED flash. The Lenovo A6000 has a 2-megapixel front-facing camera while the Redmi 1S has a 1.6-megapixel front-facing unit.
The Lenovo A6000 has a removable 2300 mAh battery while the Redmi 1S has a removable 2000 mAh battery.
Both phones support 3G, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n and WiFi hotspot, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, and microUSB 2.0. However, the A6000 also supports 4G LTE while the Redmi 1S has WiFi Direct.
The Lenovo A6000 runs Android 4.4.4 KitKat with Lenovo’s Vibe 2.0 UI. The Xiaomi Redmi 1S runs Android 4.3 Jelly Bean with MIUI 5.0.
Dimensions and Weight
The Lenovo handset measures 141mm x 70mm x 8.2mm and weighs 128g. The Xiaomi phone measures 137mm x 69mm x 9.9mm and weighs 158g.
The Lenovo A6000 is priced at Rs. 6,999 and the Xiaomi Redmi 1S is priced at Rs. 5,999.
The Lenovo A6000 comes out of this comparison well as it has several benefits over the Xiaomi Redmi 1S. These include a larger display, higher capacity battery, slightly higher megapixel front-facing camera, and a later version of Android. Of course there’s also LTE connectivity and it’s the slimmer and lighter of the two phones.
On the other hand the Redmi 1S has a faster processor and slightly lower price than the A6000, so only you can decide whether it’s worth paying an extra Rs. 1,000 for the Lenovo phone. It’s worth noting that Xiaomi Redmi recently introduced the Redmi 2 smartphone, although there’s no confirmed launch date for this phone in India yet.
