Lenovo A706, 4.5-inch quad-core dual-SIM Android

Last week, Lenovo Mobile unveiled their new entries to the local Android market scene. One of which is the chic Lenovo A706, a phone with a playful exterior but packs a quad-core mobile processor inside.


The Lenovo A706 has a white plasticky build with rounded corners and a tapered underside. It looks like a budget phone actually with a silver panel at the back to add a bit of style. It sports a 4.5-inch FWVGA IPS capacitive touchscreen display. That’s a 16:9 854 x 480 screen resolution which should bring the pixel density to an average 217ppi.


Under the hood, the Lenovo A706 uses the budget quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor that clocks at 1.2GHz. While it is equipped with 1GB RAM, it only has 4GB worth of internal storage so you definitely have to make use of a microSD card.


There’s a 5-megapixel camera with flash at the back and a VGA one at the front. Battery is rated at 2000Mah which isn’t bad for its size. It also runs on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean so you’re good to go on that area.

No price yet is given to this phone but we’ll let you know once it becomes available. I’m thinking that it will be one of those affordable quad-core phones around.

Lenovo A706 Specs:
4.5-inch 480 x 854 IPS display, 217 ppi
1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon MSM8225Q CPU
4GB internal storage, microSD up to 32GB
Android 4.1 Jelly Bean
5-megapixel rear camera with flash
VGA front camera
3G, WiFi, Bluetooth
FM Radio
GPS w/ A-GPS support
Dual SIM, Dual Standby
135.2 x 68.8 x 10.4mm
137 g
2,000mAh battery

    12k+ to. . .anlapad ng bezelz. . .

    • Vince

      I hope not. It is in the “A” series of Lenovo, meaning the “Affordable” series.

      I think being in the A series and having those nice specs, i’d say it will be priced between Php8,000-11,000. 🙂

    • Anonymous

      7,990 pesos is the price. It is stated at the lenovo website…

  • I think clock speed should be higher than 1.2GHz. It’s awkward reading 1.2GHz speed and that too with quad core processor. What you say?

  • xprimer

    i think its enough. . .for an entry level phone. . .look at CM. . .

  • mico


  • pwede na sa 5K toh! ;D

    • Vince

      Doubt it. Bro, this is not CM or Starmobile, it’s Lenovo.
      Though not as cheap as the brands I said, Lenovo still gives a fairly decent price to the phones they release.

      Having a quad-core CPU, a 4.5 inch display & being on the Axxx series, I’d say this will be around Php8k-11k.

      Remember, Lenovo P770 has an SRP of Php11,999.00 = Almost the same specs except this one traded the higher screen res and battery for an upgrade in the cores (Dual Core vs Quad Core)

      Anyway, that was just my speculation.
      Lastly, don’t get your hopes up with that Php5k SRP.

      • matindi competition dito satin, kaya barat-barat rn pag may time! ;D

        para sa akin, pwede na nila ibenta yan ng 5k! sure ako, maraming bibili nito! ;D

        • Griswold

          binaba mo naman level nila sa cherry mobile. di hamak na mas angat naman siguro kalidad ng lenovo phones kesa cherry.

        • Vince

          Bro. Look at the Lenovo A800, it’s priced at Php8k. Take note, it has lower specs than this phone. (Clearly)

          I know the competition is stiff but Lenovo is still Lenovo, an internationally-known company. (Not Cherry Mobile, Starmobile, MyPhone, etc…)

  • Doms

    I don’t know why they settled for 217ppi they can obviously do better.

    • mico

      to cut on cost.

      • Gre

        Yeah! I agree, they stick to 217 ppi to cut cost and they also intended to lower the camera pixel to lower the price also, since it only have 5 mp of rear camera and vga front camera, though its quadcore, i think its price will be at the range for 8k-10k in pesos.

  • Sa mga gusto ng jelly case, nillkin case, leather case at screen guard protector. meron ako lahat ng pang lenovo kahit etong bago. just visit my site

    • LenovoUser

      Think about it. Im using Lenovo A706 row. The speed is excellent but the touchscreen needs some calibration.

      • maestro

        Im having the same problem in the touchscreen. It needs to be calibrated.

  • hayds

    • nie

      Binili ko tong lenovo last november, sobrang bilis nya malobat.. pero maganda naman..

  • lenovanne

    i bought lenovo at SM for 7,999.000 pesos with 1 year warranty.
    all i can say very nice and fast sa wifi, sa youtube mabilis, di nag hang sa games, dolby sound hindi sabog o barag ang sound,
    matagal malobat, may flash ang cam at may flashlight ang liwanag talaga lol, may radio na din sya.. satisfied nako dito affordable quadcore na sya.. tnx lenovo and wow your endorser is kobe bryant 😉

    • FVince

      Oh yes! Ayos naman yung camera nya. Just in average. But compared to iPhone and Samsung, its 5MP camera is in low quality. But then again, despite its Affordable price, it worth it

  • May

    Hello po, sa mga nakabili, ayos po ba ang gaming experience? Lalo na po sa mga graphics-intensive games. Yung quad-core kasi ang naka-akit sakin nito ^_^

    • Gboy

      Bili ka muna then try it kung kaya.

    • FVince

      Yup, its amazingly fast, thanks to it 1.2ghz quadcore processor. Pero very limited Lang ang storage. Pero OK na din, it can almost run all the games in playstore but regarding to its memory, yung masyadong malalaki hndi kayang Idownload

  • Alvin

    para sa akin mas ok sana kung nasa 6K – 7K lang ang price…. I will choose this phone for longer battery life under normal daily usage.. like texting, calling and picture taking para sa facebook…. gaming? definitely no.. it will only shorten the battery life…

  • NavTech64

    hey guys!I just bought this Lenovo A706 last month. So far running smoothly naman, pero may limitations pa rin, like yung mga kuha ko sa camera eh hinde sa external storage na se save, ewan ko kung pano e assign sa external SDcard. baka meron paraan kung pano kasi hassle din yung tina transfer ko pa sa external. In general maganda at responsive etong Lenovo a706, first timer ako dito sa Lenovo, very interesting naman,battery life? ok naman kasi di naman ako ma games mostly text,call & mga puzzle games lang, kaya na e extend ko to 34hrs, may trick naman kung pano mo ma save yung battery, also the price it’s affordable naman for php7,999 pero meron pang mas mura pa ng p100-200. magikot-ikot lang kayo sa mga mall. Sa opinion ko lang I’ll go for international brand instead. By the way may 1 year warranty na rin. So wala munang iwanan sa Lenovo!

  • marlon

    just install the snapdragon battery guru pwd dto yun kc nka snapdragon cpu to improve battery life.

  • rain

    Ok ba siya sa skype and viber? Yun front cam malinaw kapag gamit ang skype?

    • FVince

      Very normal yung quality Ng front Cam nya specially sa Skype. Like iPhone 4 & Samsung galaxy s duos or galaxy fame, same na vga ang front Cam but I can say that they’re camera’s quality is lil bit a head than this phone. But, in short words average quality

  • kat

    this is the FREE phone for sun plan 450. my co worker got it 3days ago and im so jealous! it is really good. right now im still stuck in the same plan for another 1 year and a half and right now being miserable with galaxy pocket!!! if only i have waited for a year!

    • FVince

      Oh. My previous phone is also galaxy pocket. Kaso naexperience ko na kapag maraming apps it oftenly freeze and hang. But this phone, kahit maraming apps ganun pa din ang performance although for sometines its skipping frames but very rare.

  • Hindi okay tong phone na to magsasayang lang kayo ng pera. Biktima na ako. Kakabili ko lang kahapon at binalik ko sa shop kasi hndi makapag auto-rotate yung phone kahit naka on na sa settings nya. Nag factory reset na nag update na ng software kaso wala pa din! Ganun pa din at ang sabe ni Lenovo bug daw sa software yun. At ang masakit.. hindi ako marinig ng kausap ko sa Viber! My problema tong phone na to pagdating sa VOIP. Nakakalungkot lang. 🙁

    • FVince

      Hey, I dont experience that one. If the auto rotate screen is checked in the settings, it would perform its task. And, ok naman sya sa viber.

  • Markgabriel

    Ask ko lang po Kung may led notification itong lenovo a706?

  • Itsmesam

    wla xNG gpu?

    • meron. if you google the chip model Qualcom Snapdragon MSM8225Q you’ll find the GPU associated to it.

  • Red

    Bakit yung akin chinarge ko tapos yung “lightning” symbol sa battery nawawala?? Pero kapag nilock yung screen, nakalagay charging?

    • baka mahina yung power na dumadaloy kaya trickle charge nangyayari pagnaka-on yung phone.

  • sha

    Hi Calvin,

    Please help! I’m confused if i should get lenovo a706 or p770..

    Big thanks! 🙂

  • hi! im planning to buy this phone (Lenovo A706) but I want make sure na worth it tlg kasi ayokong masayng pera ko eh…so can guys help decided if I should buy this or Samsung duos S n lng

    • FVince

      It depends on your likes bro. My classmate has galaxy s duos, normal lang. Just like a typical low range phones of samsung. Akala ko ok na yung 1ghz single core processor, but nung nag facebook sya, naglalag madalas. Dapat iyon din ang bibilin ko kaso nung nakita ko yun I am discourage. Then I go to lenovo a706 and its surprisingly fast. Although its canera is not as good as samsung s duos.
      So, if you are photoholic, then go to samsung galaxy s duos. But if you are game addict then go to thus lenovo phone. Good catch na din to.
      Hope I helped.

  • ar2r

    pls. help, binili ko itong unit lenovo a706 last dec. 21, 2013 meron lang po ako mga napansin sa unit.

    1. walang adjustment ng volume shotter pag kumukuha ng picture.
    2. meron bang bagong feature sa lenovo a706? dumikit lang kc ang earphone wire sa screen kusa na cia nag o-operate or kusa n cia napipindot, lalo na pag nakasaksak na sa earphone jack. akala ko nung umpisa baka lang napipindot ko.

    pls. help pa check na lang din po sa inyong unit kung ganito rin po ang problema ko. or kung hindi naman sa akin po ang may problema.


    • Macy S.

      Konti pa lang yang issues mo yung sa akin same unit malala na. pati camera, touchscreen, apps na biglang nag oopen at umiinit pa. Sayang ang 8k I am planning of returning it.

    PURCHASED : JAN. 2014

    I am totally disappointed with my new android Lenovo A706- for a lot of reasons. I did not even bother at first and since its new I kinda give it some time until weird things start happening.
    From the very start the unit is heating up even when not in use which is absurd. Touch screen is not responsive and would often open an app without having to touch it….mysterious. Camera is the worst I just can’t believe it with the specs presented this Lenovo is useless with any type of photo shoot which I just noticed this month. For the amount of 8K its a total rip-off. I was embarrassed since I took it with me to dinner just now and tried taking some photos but all images are blurred with clouds then my friend is using his myPhone and it took better images…ahh. I am totally disappointed and would want to return it.I am not sure if the Lenovos sold here are just the same with US items- I would not recommend to anyone any Lenovo product period.
