Lenovo Mobile A336 Review

Posted by justblogging


Lenovo Mobile Philippines releases it's GAMING phone, the Lenovo A336. It's a dual active SIM phone and it has two colors available, a combination of white and green and a combination of  black and orange.



Lenovo A336 opens your world to play. It has a built-in Game Simulator which allows you to play Nintendo or classic games into its 2.4 inches QVGA screen. All you have to do is download free NES ROMS in the internet and put them all to your microSD card and you’re ready to play! The phone supports up to 8GB of additional file storage.

This phone has a limited promo which bundles a 2GB microSD card with 11 games.  


The Lenovo A336 has a dedicated gaming keys, the O and the X button which is located on top of the phone. Those buttons serve as your gaming keys like “A” and “B” button on a Nintendo gamepad. You can choose to play on a portrait or a landscape mode for your gaming convenience.

When I saw this phone, it reminds me of my favorite Nintendo game, the Super Mario Bros.! So I hurried downloading it. Wow, NES rom really works on this phone! Amazing!



The phone has also a dedicated music hotkey which opens the Music player once the key is pressed. It also has Built-in FM and FM Recording, a VGA camera with Flash. You may also use the flash as a torch light.

One of the many good things about this phone is that you may also use the back camera as a Webcam. Just connect the phone to your PC or laptop via USB and it will automatically install the driver. No need for additional SW installer. Cool and no hassle, right?


The phone has a built-in Social networking apps, Yahoo Messenger, Twitter, Facebook and MSN application. Now, I can be updated anytime, anywhere!

The phone has a built-in Answer Machine which allows to take charge of all your missed calls. Once you haven’t answered the call, the caller may leave their important messages. The voice message will automatically saved to a microSD card and you can retrieve them right away. No additional cost on the network! Wow!

Fool around with your friends with its Background Sound Effect feature. You can tell your friends that you are in an MRT, or in a restaurant, motorcycle or sidewalk even if you’re just at home. Nice! Not only that, you can also protect your messages, contacts, call logs and gallery files for your own security.

Speaking of security, the phone has a Mobile Tracker feature. It's a security assistant to help recover lost or stolen phones and prevent disclosing personal information. Once, you're phone has been stolen and SIM card has been changed, the recipients/contact numbers you saved on the Mobile Tracker are notified via SMS, saying "Warning, the phone has been stolen!" plus, the number of the unauthorized SIM card is displayed.


This phone comes with a good quality and loaded with extra features but doesn't come at a high price. It retails Php 2,290. Good DEAL!


A Dual SIM for gamers!

As my all-time question for any gadget. How’s the battery life? How’s the charge to charge basis?

I'm curious about this phone. Might as well try to buy one tomorrow.

i have a problem with private security settings. once you activate password for messages you need to enter password everytime you write, send and read messages. annoying and inefficient.

gaano katibay yung a336 na phone model.anong video files ang supported nito. malinaw ba yung camera nito kahit VGA cam lang ito.pls do response. thanks

gusto ko lng poh malamn ang dis advantage ng phone nato. ndi lng advantge yung nababasa ko para fair lng poh.

justblogging said...

Hi! The supported video formats are 3GPP, AVI and MP4.

I believe that the only disadvantage on this phone is that it's only a dual band GSM, if you're going abroad or outside Asia, the phone won't work. But basically, if you won't be traveling outside Asia, this would be a great phone! A dual SIM with gaming capabilities. A really great phone for entertainment.

The camera is VGA but with LED flash. The quality is decent. Not only that, it can be used as webcam too!

Does it have Call and SMS blacklist feature like the othee lenovo models?

Anonymous said...

It has blacklist. Also include sms scheduler, and an answering machine. kinda laggish during texting when message is long, and another problem is that it cannot read avi/mp4. only 3gp. (though lenovo mobile philippines says it reads avi as well). wav files for the answering machine need to be recorded via built in microphone, putting in something from the computer would result in an error reading invalid file format. given the not so good quality of mic, the resulting recording is not so good. over all it has a lot of good features but also have some problems with it. 3/5 for me. playing classic games in it is fun, but the structure is not ergonomic at all. Despite being playable in a wide screen, holding it horizontally is painful for the hands for prolonged periods of time. so I had to make the screen smaller and upright in such a way that I hold the phone vertically up.

can i install a java game with lenovo a336 even if it does not support java.?????

Anonymous said...

It can support AVI video format..
Just change the Video Size to 176x144 and Video bitrate to 15, when Converting..
The only problem with AVI video format is the SIZE.. Most AVI video that i have has the size more than 10MB, the largest reached to 51.9MB thats a 9:50 min. vid. it's a problem coz i only have 1GB memory card..
But then i prefer to have it because it has High Quality "HD" Video Results.
Good for Lenovo Mobile Phone..

not so good video, SLOW RESPONDING TIME, can't play mp4, and FM radio (headset on) sound is quite low.

and another thing,.,.messages in sim 1 and 2 is mixed up in 1 inbox. >.<

The battery of this phone will last for 4 - 5 days when fully charged. Great for camping trips and emergency blackouts.. 7- 9 days on stand by mode

"gaano katibay yung a336 na phone model.anong video files ang supported nito. malinaw ba yung camera nito kahit VGA cam lang ito.pls do response. thanks"

- matibay sya, 3gp and AVI ung supported file.
- malabo ung cam nya, wag kana umasa
- ayos lang ung video nya if maliwanag

Sa SM north / Annex makakabili ka neto.. mga 2,000 Php lang

hello gusto ko lang po malaman ang dis-advantage ng lenovo a336 .

hindi ba talaga gumagana ang GPRS nito or mahirap lang dahil mabagal ang connection tsaka madali ba masira ang LCD???

Anonymous said...

i just purchased one 2 weeks ago, sinubukan kong mag-download ng games and panay ? mark lang ang nakita ko sa phone, tinanong ko yung binilihan ko sabi nila sa memory card daw yun, kailangan bumili daw ako ng bago, i haven't bought a new one yet, tapos yung sa gprs niya hindi gumagana, hindi compatible sa globe, tnt or even sa sun, i have 3 sim kasi sinubukan ko lahat.

justblogging said...

You need to download .nes roms and save it to your memory card under "Game" and to its subfolder. You may copy the "Game" folder from the phone memory and paste it to your memory card. For GPRS, the settings are already preconfigured you just need to activate your SIM.
