I wasn’t really planning on buying a new phone since my current one is still alive and kicking, yet here I am, falling prey to the unparalleled marketing strategies the gadget merchants have especially concocted. And the one that caught my eye among all others is the Lenovo A60. Priced at 6,600PHP by Quality Cellular Phone, this phone is really worth looking into.
This is probably what you’re thinking: “The hell? I’ve never heard of a Lenovo-branded mobile phone before!” Well, they actually have a separate group for their mobile gadgets, but it’s still under Lenovo. Also, this is the first time they entered the Philippine smartphone market so maybe that’s why.

I’m not really a fan of anything Android, but after diving a couple of times in my siblings’ Droid-operated phones, I was astounded by the literally thousands of FREE and useful applications you can horde online. Well yeah, my old Nokia C3 can also have third-party apps installed in it, but I needed the bigger screen, more powerful processing and a smoother and more practical user interface to improve my overall work and social performance.
