The smartphone gets all of its processing power from MediaTek MT6752m, 1.5 GHz octa-core processor. The processor is coupled with 2 GB of RAM for the acceleration. However after such hardware specs the smartphone still faces some heat issues. The smartphone gets heated up while playing high graphic demanding games on high settings. Lenovo A7000 gets heated while playing games like:- Real Racing 3, Asphalt 8 and many other such HD games. Due to the heating issues the smartphone lacked to perform as was thought to be theoretically. Even some users have sent their Lenovo A7000 back to the websites from which they purchased it.
But for a normal user, it will not get heated that much. But if you are not sure of its performance then I recommend you to either buy Lenovo K3 Note or Yureka Plus - both of them are quite similar performance wise and are available for Rs 9,999.
