  • Think Reality A6; a headset tested at the AWE conference

Lenovo's new augmented reality headset, Think Reality A6, is it at the level we have come to expect? Bad news, the satisfaction is not really there ...

We had good surprises in terms of the quality of experiences offered by Lenovo, even with the low-end Mirage AR. Enough to expect this to continue. This is undoubtedly what disappoints the most.



Think Reality A6; a headset tested at the AWE conference

Our colleagues from Next Reality were able to test the Think Reality A6 directly during the AWE conference. To demonstrate this, the company made it possible to test a rather simple menu, and which apparently seems designed for businesses. However, visually, the result mostly gave the impression of taking us back in time, from a user experience point of view. Aesthetically, the helmet is located between the Hololens 1 and the Meta 2, which makes it a rather visually attractive result. The device seems to be well designed from this point of view, with real comfort for users. but the sensations are not really at the same level.

Advertised to weigh 380 grams, the Think Reality A6 gives the impression of weighing a lot more. On the connection side, the device connects to Wi-Fi but not for 4G or 5G, which is surprising. The 40 ° FOV, limited in essence, does not have the luxury of high quality images. What makes optimistic? The choice of wiring with a unit at the hips, already seen elsewhere and which seems to be the trend to follow. Lenovo can do better.
