Lenovo Mobile will also be offering discounts on other Android smartphone releases, Lenovo A269i, A526, and A680.

Lenovo A269i will sell for only Php 1,999 from a regular price of Php 2,499. This Dual SIM handset is powered by a Dual Core MediaTek MT6572 processor and runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS. It has a 3.5 inch 320 x 480 pixels TFT display, 2 MegaPixel camera, no front cam, 256 MB of RAM, 512 MB of expandable storage, and a 1,300 mAh battery pack.

Lenovo A526 runs Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean operating system with a Quad Core MediaTek MT6582M SoC and features a 4.5-inch 480 x 854 pixels display, 5 MegaPixel camera, VGA front cam, Dual SIM Dual Standby capability, 3G HSPA+ support, 1 GB of RAM, 4 GB of expandable storage, and a 2,000 mAh battery.

So which smartphone model in this gadget sale do I recommend? Lenovo A680 has the most updated specs of the bunch; I just hope Lenovo would send it Android KitKat upgrade soon. To be honest, for the same prices, you can get handsets with far better technical specifications from our local manufacturers and even from a handful of international ones. But if you're a big Lenovo fan and you must stick to the brand, the discounted A680 is the one I recommend if only because of the decent internal hardware.
