Lenovo P70 hands-on, first impressions

Lenovo P70 hands-on, first impressions

Along with the Lenovo S90 and A5000 smartphones, Lenovo also launched the Lenovo P70 – a 5-inch mid-ranger with MediaTek octa-core CPU, Dual-SIM support with LTE connectivity, and a solid battery capacitiy of 4000mAh.

The Lenovo P70 is like the opposite of the S90. While the latter is slim with curves, the former is a bit chunky and boxy. The sides is slightly curved but the top and bottom part are flat.

Looking at the front we’ll see the 5-inch HD IPS display. Above it is the earpiece, 5 megapixel front camera, and light sensor. Down below are three capacitive buttons for Options, Home, and Back.

The right side has the volume rocker and power/lock button, while the left side is devoid of any physical keys.


Found up top is the headset jack and microphone, while down at the bottom are the microUSB port, microphone, and speaker grills.

At the back is the 13 megapixel AF rear camera, LED flash, and the Lenovo branding.

On hand, the Lenovo P70 is chunkier than the S90 at 8.9mm and hefty at 149g. However, it’s comfortable as your hand has more room to grip while the heft will only remind you that this device is packing a huge battery.

Speaking of battery, it has a capacity of 4000mAh which should last longer than most smartphones out there. Plus, it has a power-saving software, a Quick Charge feature that lets you fully charge the phone in three hours, and On-The-Go Charging that turns the P70 into a power bank, letting you charge other devices.

Lenovo P70 specs:
5-inch HD IPS display, 294ppi
1.7GHz MediaTek MT6752 octa-core CPU
Mali T760-MP2 GPU
16GB internal storage

    I have a question. Itong phone na ‘to, dual sim slot po ba sya PLUS a dedicated slot for microSD card?
    Kasi may nakikita akong phone models na yung secondary SIM slot nagsisilbing microSD card slot na rin so ang nangyayari, kung gusto mong gamitin in a dual SIM active setting, you have to deal with the lack of microSD card slot. Pero kung gusto mong pwedeng malagyan ng microSD, you have to use it with only one SIM card inserted.

    Sana masagot po ng kung sino mang nakagamit na sa phone na to.
