  1. Sani G /

    Where can we buy these phones?

  2. Not so good phones even if bago pa lang sila sa mobile market. I still like Samsung Android phones…. :)

    • bernie /

      nasubukan mo na ba pre?

      • no they’re not bad. mura na., maganda pa. i have the s800, my brother has the a60 and my grandma has the e156

        • may wifi ba s800?

          • arhen richmond,do you have lenovo cellphone?how can you say that it is not so good?may galaxy s3 ka na ba?

        • sana meron ng available na mga spare parts ang A60 sa market…tulad ng casing/housing at etc.

          • Chine /

            tamaaa. ang hirap maghanap ng spare parts talaga :( hahay.

          • huhu.. nasira yung lcd ng a336 celphone ko.. hindi ko alam kong saan pwede bumili ng replacement ng lcd..

    • uu, nga nasubukan mooh na ba? baka kainin mooh sinabi mooh na you like samsung alone after digging in what lenovo phones can do? lenovo user din kaya ako..-

  3. Griswold /

    Yikes. i wished lenovo would just stick to lenovo. masisira brand nila if they out cheap-looking phones such as these.

    • Griswold /

      btw, that transparent phone looks cool btw. but i don’t see the reason why you would want a transparent screen. para makita mo dinadaanan mo when you’re texting while walking?

  4. 3 of the phones are clearly China phones judging from their interfaces. I wished Lenovo did like what Alcatel did with their phones here in the Philippines, they are distinct both in design and contents.

    • you should try it first, i bought A336 as 2nd phone, the battery is great, it lasts for 3 to 4 days, bugbog pa sa text yun a. 2200 lang naman. i consider it as a great phone with affordable price.

      • angelo /

        yeah.. i agree before kasi mag comment gamitin muna product kung maganda ba talaga o hindi..- i have used lenovo phones din, ok naman affordable with good specs na bagay sa needs mo.

        • OK gamitin ang lenovo cellphone.. kaya lang sa akin.. nasira ko yung lcd nito.. ngayon hidi ko alam kng saan pwd buili ng lcd..

    • Yup,maganda nga yung Alcatel. Am using 506D as my 2nd phone, and the battery lasts for about a week (min. usage) and 3-4 days (max. usage.)

      For android, binigyan ako ng galaxy ace. I must say na I love this phone!

      Although I haven’t tried lenovo phones yet, siguro naman maganda yung product nila since yung laptops nila are great. :)

  5. where is this available?

      • mozart /

        hi sir calvin, have you tried out the android phone a60? im considering to buy this one, thanks.. hope you could make a review of a60.. ^_^

  6. lenovo is a chinese company and these are entry level phones. so keep your expectations the same level as the price range.

  7. dextrose77 /

    I have one the Lenovo A336…for me ok lang ang unit nila although yong feature nila is china phone talaga lets say on a higher quality china phone it seems class A china phone, hindi kagaya sa tabi-tabi na china. Lets say nasa line siya ng myphone, cherry mobile and Torque. For me ok lang ako sa lenovo A336 ko although marami na akong phones…Dagdag phone collection ko lang. hehehehehehehe

  8. I’m sorry to tell this.

    Lenovo just released copycats of phones from cherry, torque, etc.

    But the Lenovo S800 is actually good. I mean it is very unique…just unique.

    Feature wise, I rather go for Sony, Samsung or Nokia….better quality than these. Just my opinion. Lenovo has to prove me wrong. :)

  9. Lenovo Q330 looks like BlackBerry. I really like its design.

  10. ask ko lang kung available ba to sa area ng tarlac and pangasinan?

  11. Just got the Lenovo Q350, so far so good. I agree with dextrose77, parang china phone nag pero higher quality. I guess hindi naman papasira ang Lenovo with these phones. If I loved my Lenovo laptop, it’s possible that I would love my Lenovo phone too.

    • I had that Q350. Tried using the shift key? It doesn’t work. The software is aware that you pressed it, but it doesn’t respond properly.

      It has push email though and that is what makes it special.

      But the OS of both Q330 and Q350 are bad software. If you are coming from Nokia S60s or other feature phones, these qwerty phones from Lenovo will drive you nuts. If you are used to androids, forget it.

      I got the Q330 for 1200 at SM North. I got the Q350 from Shopwise for 1800. Dahil mura, madalas ma-arbor. Hehehe.

      Nice with push email and their social aps + Smart’s Trinet loads. After 2 days, nakaka 1MB lang ang phone kahit babad sa email. Hindi mo mauubos ang MB allocation ng trinet by emailing and using the social aps.

      The rest: texting, contacts management, camera, file manager, useability of the OS all sucks.

  12. I’m interested sa s800 and a336. During my younger days, fave ko ang super mario 3 game. Sana may gumawa ng in-depth review at maipost ang mga tech specs like RAM capacity, processor, etc. At sa gagawa ng extensive review, salamat ng marami, in advance. =)

  13. Shaun Daniel /

    I do have a Lenovo A336. The resolution of the screen is much clearer compare to MyPhone, Cherry Mobile & Torque. Kahit bago sya sa market, I think di naman masisira yun name ng Lenovo kasi mas maganda pa sya sa Alcatel. Nokia naman, mura nga pero sirahin. Samsung maganda naman pero less feature kapag mura. Check nyo.

    • i agree… i also have a lenovo A336…i so love it.. i can play games like those games on nintendos… =)

  14. wala bang txt reader to? sana meron. dapat lang cellphone lalabas ngayon kaya nang magbasa ng ebook o simpleng text files man lang.

  15. i guess hindi into competitive phone, just making this they want to have some basic phone as their name. check the specs and price para sakin tama lng. pro mas maganda ang design compare mo sa ibang phone na naka linya sa price nya specially q330, q3350, and a336 and s800 LCD really cool and very unique!

  16. Syane /

    I just bought A60 seems ok namn so far. Kung quality experienced – samasung is the best, Worst experienced is Nokia. Try ko lng muna A60 Lenovo. Let’s see the phone performance. Or else, I will get back to Samsung.

  17. rhandz /

    i plan to buy a60 konti lng nagco coment about this,maganda b kya talagah?kc maz namementioned p ung a336 sk q330,so now khit like n like ko n ung a60 i still doubt sna may mag mag advice p ng maganda ung nk experienced n ng a60.

  18. where can we buy those phones?………………

  19. toto_hustin /

  21. junshosanto /

    I bought the Dual Sim Android phone A60 Lenovo and all I can say is that it ROCKS!!! I’m using a Sun data sim on sim 1 and an ordinary sun line on sim 2 what can I say I have both worlds. Data line on sim 1 costs only at Sun’s plan 3++ and ordinary line at Sun’s plan 3++ also. Inly costs me 7++ a month for a moderately fast data plan and call and tex plan…

    purchased the Lenovo a60 and para sakin eh sulit sya… being cheap pwede na rin sya ilaban sa mga low end Android phones ng Samsung… you have to consider the price din kasi… sa tingin nyo kung 15-20k ang price range nito eh ganito lang ang features na ilalagay nila?

  37. answer - me says /

    how much po ba talaga ang price nang Lenovo A60….
    in some store it selling 5,+++.00
    here the price show 7,+++.00

    • this is SRP… suggested retail price when it first came out. it will eventually be lower sa mga stores as times goes.

  38. Guys pls help..about sa games,kc ng download nko ng mga NES games pero pdin mg-open..bka alam nyo mga procedure..salamat

  39. does lenovo have dual active phones? dual active is different from dual standby. dual active is you can receive call from other sim while other sim is in use. while dual standby phone is you can’t receive a phone call if you use either of the one sim.

  40. may alam ba kayo guys kung saan pwede makadownload ng theme for lenovo s800? salamat
