Lenovo P700i: The P700 with an upgraded 1GHz Dual-core processor at the same price of Php10,999

Wow, that was extremely fast! An upgrade of the Lenovo P700 was already made by Lenovo Mobile and it’s now a dual-core android phone called as Lenovo P700i. The P700 was a very big success so that’s why Lenovo didn’t waste any time to dive into the plunge to take a better hold of the mid-range battle.
The Lenovo P700 gets a bump in processing power but it retains an impressively low Php10,999 price tag against other competing smartphones with the same specs. They didn’t really change anything at all aside from the one mentioned above but it is still a good thing since it doubles the punch. One of the selling points of the Lenovo P700i will probably be the large battery capacity of 2500mAh as it will significantly help churn out several days of uptime even with moderate to heavy usage.

The only bad thing about this new device is that Lenovo pulled it in an untimely manner. Some people who recently bought the Lenovo P700 complained that they just got their phones a few weeks back and then Lenovo releases this upgraded P700i. A dual-core against a single core is really a big difference so I guess it’s the reason why they were complaining at Lenovo’s Facebook page and we can’t blame them for that.
The Lenovo P700i is strategically priced at Php10,999 which is definitely a very competitive price considering its great set of specs plus its powerful battery. At this price, this arguably makes the P700i of Lenovo the best bang for buck.
