Lenovo Mobile Philippines is very proud to announce the newest addition of their Android Smartphone lineup. Now, the wait is over for all Lenovo Mobile fanatics out there!
This mobile recently introduced the Lenovo A65 which runs at 800MHz CPU speed on a 2.3 Gingerbread version and it's amazingly hit the mobile market because of its very affordable price of 5,499. Prior to A65 they launched the Lenovo A60 which is an Android smartphone too.Most of the dual-SIM Android phones that are coming out lately are on the entry-level end. A few have reached the mid-range category with the likes of Alcatel and HTC with their Desire V. Lenovo is now also a strong contender with the P700.
At a quick glance, the Lenovo P700 can be mistaken for something like the HTC Incredible S due to the slightly similar color and design cues. The casing of the device is a stealth-black polycarbonate plastic with a faux stainless-steel band that runs along its sides, the shutter release button and volume keys on the right side of the phone feels solid when pressed, on top is where the microUSB port and 3.5mm headphone jack is found as well as the small-ish power/lock key.
The norm for an entry level and mid range Android smartphone is that manufacturers tend to use outdated versions of the Android OS on these devices. Lenovo took the high road and burned ICS (Ice Cream Sandwich) into the P700. Competing Android phones in the same price range as the Lenovo P700 is sill being sold loaded with Gingerbread, so yeah, kudos to Lenovo for going with ICS. There are some slight customizations that Lenovo did to the stock UI of Android ICS, but the modifications are so minuscule and minor that it would have been better if Lenovo just left the stock Android UI untouched. Stil, it’s ICS and Lenovo deserves a lot of high fives for that.
Slowly but surely, the cold confectionery is becoming the new standard, thanks to huge sales of the latest models, all of which come with Android 4.0, like the Samsung Galaxy S III. Of course, not everyone can afford a PhP 30,000 smartphone, but now, ICS is available with the launch of more budget-friendly models like the HTC Desire C, which has a price tag of PhP 10,990. Selling for around the same amount (PhP 10,999) is the Lenovo P700, which one-ups the Desire C by adding dual-SIM capabilities (just like its predecessor, the A60) and a large-capacity 2500mAh battery. Other specs include a 1GHz single-core CPU, a 4-inch IPS LCD with a resolution of 800 x 480. This might not sound too sharp compared to the HD panels on the flagship Android models out there, but we found the display to be very crisp and clear, with plenty of brightness to spare.
