Lenovo introduced A6000 in Jan 2015 & A6000 Plus in April 2015. Lenovo A6000 received great response from all the users. It was also termed as one of the best low budget Android Smartphone. However, things have changed now, many new devices have arrived with much better specs & less cost. Lenovo slowly started losing hold from A6000 updates. Things got worse after Lenovo A6000 Lollipop 5.0.2 update. Some of the common issues after update were battery drain, less free RAM, lag while multi tasking & the ugly VibeUI update.
