Hands on with the Lenovo P770 – dual SIM, 3500mAh battery, USB OTG; yours for PHP 11,999
It’s finally here. I’ve been writing about Lenovo for months but no other phone has generated this much excitement than the P770. And we can’t blame them: this is the phone that addresses the #1 concern of most mobile warriors: battery life. Although sightly thicker than most smartphones to date, the trade off of the P770 is its amazing 3500mah battery which is essentially 3x the capacity of an iPhone 5 battery and slightly higher than the Galaxy Note II (but remember the Note II uses up more power because of the bigger screen and processing speeds).
Dual SIM; Dual Standby
Android v4.1 Jelly Bean
Dual-core 1.2 GHz Cortex-A9 PowerVR SGX531
IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen, 16M colors
540 x 960 pixels, 4.5 inches (245 ppi)
microSD slot up to 32 GB (bundled 8GB card)
4GB internal memory w/ 1GB RAM
Main 5MP camera w/ secondary VGA front cam
The package includes a much-needed “USB on the go” (OTG) cable that allows you to do two other things: read files from other USB devices (like a thumb drive) and act as a power source for other phones. Yup, this phone has so much battery, it can charge other devices.
For PHP 11,999? Wow. It’s No brainer here guys. Go out and get one.
EDIT: Do you own a P770? We have two here at home and I’m noticing some problems with memory allocation — I can’t seem to transfer apps from internal memory to external memory.
