      @Damarkcus
      Beware of @abuzalzal! He’ll surely come here to make another worthless rant about all of our comments here. Ready your guns, comrades! We’re gonna shoot him to death once he flocks here!

      Joking aside, I’m totally attracted with this smartphone. More than enough as a daily communication phone and time-killer device for me.

    • abutikol says:

      Armed and ready, sir! Locked and loaded!
      We’re gonna kill @abuzalzal once he set his foot here. Kill all bastards!

    • not yuga says:

      Fortunately, I just got word from Lenovo Philippines that the K900 that will arrive in our country has a MicroSD slot. All of your worries should disappear now.

    • jade says:

      oh ayan. bobo kasi. di kasi alam na ang mga smartphones may ibat ibang version. may nalalaman pa siyang false marketing. bago ka manlait ng ibang brand tingnan mo muna ang favorite mong brand na cherrymobile .sila ang mas may false marketing. IPS daw ang flare, sa totoo pala ay TN TFT lang pala. kawawa yung naniwala. pero ok lang din naman kasi mura lang din ang flare, pero sana di nila niloko ang mga pinoy. hehe

    almost same specs sa huawei g525 pro ung price less than 1k (huawei g525 @6990)

  5. vince says:

    does it have gorilla glass/dragontrail? at least naman is a screen protector available?

  6. JP says:

    This phone faces some stiff competition against the Huawei G525, HTC desire 600, and Starmobile Icon. Each phone has it’s strengths and weaknesses. Weaknesses being… A706-lower ppi, G525-no flash?, Desire 600-no sd card slot, Icon-remains to be seen. hehe.

  7. Edwin C says:

    Ako ay bibili.

  8. septendecim says:

    ang starmobile icon mas mura ng konti… difference – front/main camera, dragontrail… unless mas maganda ang cpu na gamit ng Lenovo… mukhang mapapag-iwanan sila dito…

  9. shadow says:

    Sana nilakihan ni Lenovo ung battery capacity..:)

  10. StilofdaNite says:

    is Snapdragon Play MSM8225 is powerful than MSM8225?

    Cortex A5 ba processor at Adreno 203 parin ba GPU

  11. Spike like Mike says:

    @Abuzalzal

    Taena sinabi ngang merong SD Slot ang K900.

    Nakita ko nga mismo sa Jakarta Indonesia, nag doubt lang ako bilhin dhil sa warranty pero ang mura sobra ng phones dun pati accessories ng lahat ng phones meron.

    Sa Pilipinas kasi puro Samsung at Iphones lang me casing, buti pa sa Indonesia lahat meron pati flip covers ng mid range phones.

  12. yan says:

    hello, meron ba tong dedicated camera key like nung sa p700/i? thanks :)

  13. mabilis ang a706 pero mahirap hanapin! sa sm north konti lang meron stocks at mahirap din mag hanap ng covers isang shop lng meron sa sm north lol! :)

  14. abuzalzal says:

    BASAHIN BASAHIN…HUWAG MAGTIWALA sa SABI-SABI ahahahahahahahaha

  16. abuzalzal says:

  17. Michael Arcangel says:

    Kung kelang nakabili ako ngbagong smartphone saka naglalabasn yun ibang branded pero budget friendly pero pamatay ang specs. Sana naka dragontrail glass at higher capacity yun battry nya para sulit. :-)

  18. Jazz says:

  20. putipot says:

    just checking the specs of that phone A706

  21. komputerman says:

    Wala bang nakabili ng lenovo A706??? Gusto ko sana malaman kung ano ng ups and downs nitong phone after using it for at least a month…

    • kynrick12 says:

      kakabili ko lang po ng A706 last week… as of now eh running smooth naman sya kahit marami na akong na install na apps… yung battery lang talaga ang kailangan na ma focus nila in development :)

  22. marie says:

    i bought this phone. been using this for 3 days now im so disappointed. it hangs, screen unresponsive sometimes. there are times the lenovo screen launcher wont open. it isnt fast. nice specs but it doesnt deliver. try to replace it

    • jejace says:

      Been using this also for 3 days. Sometimes the screen isn’t that responsive (or maybe because the screen protector that was installed was still dual layer). Will be updating once in a while about how this thing goes. :)

  23. nicolee says:

    yung mga bumili ng a706 dyan, try nyo update, tapos i factory reset nio. been using this for almost 2 weeks na, okay naman sya. been playing games like dark avenger and demonic savior.. try nio gamitin ung feature n resident memory para sa launcher..

  24. aileen says:

    anyone knows how to hard reset this phone? I forgot my lockscreen password and I need to reset it. thanks

  25. mike says:

    I’m so disappointed with this phone. Honestly, I bought one yesterday. At first I was attracted with it’s specs and reasonable price and brand too. Akala ko okay to. Di pala. Di makapag auto-rotate sa text tapos di ako marinig ng kausap ko sa viber. Dinala ko na to sa shop na binilhan ko at tumawag na din sila sa Lenovo. It’s a bug daw on the software. Nakakalungkot lang. :(

  26. Juwel says:

    the screen of A706 is not much sensetive.

  27. Alfred J. says:

    i had purchase lenovo A706 a month ago. . after 2 weeks of purchase i’ve got to go back to the store to complain that the unit just restart itself. . . . luckily, it was replaced with the same model. . . now after 2 units of used. . it just restart automatically. . got to go the store this afternoon. . . hey LENOVO. . WHATS UP ? ? ?

  28. Ronald Santiago says:

    Purchased this last Friday and somethings I notice:
    No LED for battery and text notifications.
    Choosy earphone/headphone, I’m fond of my SE headphone so I need to sacrifice it.
    Using Globe postpaid and PLDT LL+, my old phone can recognize both SIM, Lenovo only recognize Globe on SIM2 so I can’t use 3G on it. Plan to bring to service center later to see.

  29. juliebelle perez says:

    Sometimes my lenovoa706 restarts on its own..please tell me why is it like that….
