Suppose you put a large 2,500 mAh battery onto a phone with some compelling features – like coming with Android 4.0 out of the box in an affordable package – then we might say you probably have a very interesting product in your hands. Thankfully, a product like that does exist – the Lenovo Mobile P700 to be exact. It was launched recently at an event that also introduced a few other Lenovo Mobile phones. However as a small time tech blog we weren’t invited to it. And so, even when people asked about the phones, we really couldn’t tell them about it. Of course we could have checked other blogs for that same information, but then without personally experiencing the devices we’d have nothing to go with except copy the specs – an act we’d rather not do. But thankfully, one of our colleagues brought his own P700 to the recent Philippine Android Community Meetup to check out. This gave us an opportunity to do a quick preview of the device, which you can watch after the jump.
The Lenovo Mobile P700 is essentially a budget Android device that has some very up-to-date, or quite interesting features to go with it. While the 1Ghz processor, 4.0” IPS 800×480 screen, 5MP Camera (no flash), & VGA Front Facing Camera are average in today’s spec sheets, the phone does come out of the box with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich; has a large 2,500 mAh battery; and is Dual SIM / Standby capable. Adding all those up in a nice PHP 10,990 package makes the P700 quite an interesting buy for consumers looking for a long-lasting, 1Ghz+ phone that can handle 2 phone numbers at once, as most Dual SIM phones typically have much more entry-level specifications.
We’d love to get in contact again with Lenovo Mobile to possibly check one out in a much longer capacity, but hey maybe they just don’t want to. In which case, we’ll just take our coverage elsewhere. We did, after all, attend their first launch event and have a video of those phones with over 18,000 views now.
