You can check Lenovo Mobile's list of dealers here:

It would be safe to call their dealers first before you go on their stores.

pwede sya mag skype?

justblogging said...

Unfortunately, Skype video calling is not supported on this device, but you may use the Skype for "Skype to Skype call and chat". Make sure not to enable Skype video calling, otherwise app will not work. Just in case you enabled the video calling feature, the Skype will be forced to close. To make the Skype work again (without video call), go to Manage App and look for the Skype App, Long-tap it and clear the data.

Other apps that support video calling on this device are:
1. Yahoo! Messenger (download plugin too - available on Google Play Store)
2. Fring
3. Tango

Note: Lenovo A65 has no front camera, but you can use the back camera for video calling.

justblogging said...

Hi Faye! Yes, it's threaded SMS.

The battery life is awesome! It has 1500 mAh battery capacity.

really good phone. my friend showed it to me earlier today. i was impressed. the free case that comes with it is really good too.

i personally know Lenovo phones' distributor. So if you want me to hook you up with them, i can. I think they can give you discounts. I wanted to get one for myself, but i couldnt since i just bought a new phone last month. anyway, here's my email. jerome.morales@gmail.com but of course, you can always refer to this website to make this more convenient for you.

Booksplorer said...

Hi, I have this phone na after almost a month of speculating and reflecting. Okay ang performance ng phone na to! The battery naman, like any other touch screened phones there, hindi ganoon katagal since andaming apps na ginagamit lalo na sa display pa lang 40% na ang nagagamit. Kaya pag di kayo gumagamit ng wifi, i turn off and wifi sa phone and mag-auto brightness para hindi naddrain yung batt. I needed to always have the background sync and auto-sync to receive notifications pero the other batt-saving options, nagawa ko na. Okay naman yung unit overall. I'm so satisfied with it! And it's a big phone unlike yung galaxy y. I was surprised that this unit can offer more without sacrificing the quality. If you need to ask anything about the phone, I'm using it for three days na ^^ Just send me an email booksplorer@yahoo.com.ph :)

got this phone 2 weeks ago, so far wala namang problema sa A65 ko, sa battery naman ok naman walang problema nakaka-abot naman siya ng 2days sa akin, at saka instagram, fb, YM, tumblr, and gmail lang naman madalas kong gamit na apps, hindi ako naka auto-brightness, saka naka off din ang animation.

pinescruiser said...

mmm.. i got an a65 today, ok nman yung phone problem lang eh ayaw mag tether sa laptop though wifi tethering, pero sa usb tethering nagcoconnect naman siya. and yung screen parang pixelated.. ;(

May said...

How about the camera features? Okay lang ba? coz' I've heard bad feedbacks from Samsung Galaxy Y, medyo blurry and you have you have to repeat taking pic just to get the perfect shot. I'm enticed to buy this one. please help. Thanks!

Gene said...

I've had the phone for a little over a month now ...as with two other android phones I'm currently using (HTC desire-S and Samsung Galaxy Ace), I'm able to install most applications needed (go sms, business calendar, k9mail ... etc (even swiftkeyX keyboard). It handles all of them pretty well and considering the 800mhz processor speed, the phone is pretty responsive.

What I did notice (and this is serious) is that a great number of text messages sent to me (in both my sun and globe sims) don't get through (I have people telling me that they texted, but I didn't receive anything). No problems naman with outgoing sms, I verified that they all went through. I don't know if this problem is unique to my handset or if there are others experiencing the same problem...I'd appreciate if they'd speak up as well.

I'd definitely keep the phone if this problem can be resolved ... sayang naman ... performance wise, it can really rival my galaxy ace, and it's a dual-sim.

justblogging said...

Hi Gene! You might have activated the Filter app's Blacklist or Whitelist mode. You should set it to "Close Server", otherwise all incoming messages will be intercepted..

How can you change the font color for sms from white to black? also, the sms background colors? more power. thanks.

Anonymous said...

is lenovo a65 really good coz im planning to have one tomorrow. thanks

justblogging said...

Hi Allan, You cannot change the font color of the messaging by default, you need to download a third party app like Go SMS, Chomp SMS, etc.

hello! i'm planning to buy lenovo A65. Can you tell me how to take of the battery? How many hours do I need to charge if it is its first time to charge?

Anonymous said...

Hi I'm planning to buy one next week. I will be newbie on using smart phones and androids if im gonna buy this one.. not much knowledge on them yet, so tanong ko lang kung nakaka-read ba to ng doc files. Gusto ko kasi magamit ang internet capabilities nito sa work ko kasi mobile user ako at kailangan ko palagi mag-check ng email at docs.

Anonymous said...

Hi.. open-line po ba ito? Gamitin ko kasi Sun Broadband dito kung pwede..

justblogging said...

it's a great phone for it's price! :)

justblogging said...

charging time will take 2 and a half to 3 hours.. the phone has a factory charge so no more initial charging for this phone..

justblogging said...

The Lenovo A65 has built in Email app, you just have to set it up by entering your email address and password.
This phone can read documents like PPT, Excel, Word but you have to download an application like Quick Office, WPS, etc. It's free on Google Play Store / Android Market.

justblogging said...

Yes, it's openline! :)

Anonymous said...

Thanks for the answer justblogging! I'll be looking for this one for next week, hoping there would be not much negative comments coming..

Benjo Rondilla said...

How can I change my ringtone & message tone with my own MP3 tones?

Anonymous said...

Hello everyone... one important question for me... Is the keypad a QWERTY or ALPHA NUMERIC or BOTH? Thanks... :-)

justblogging said...

Hi Benjo, open your File Browser app, create a folder name "Media" and under Media, create a subfolder "Audio", under audio create another subfolder "Notifications". Under Notifications folder, cut and paste your .MP3 files.

The path should be like this:
Media>Audio>Notifications>

After doing this, go to Settings > Audio profiles then General and choose the MP3 songs you want to set as your default ringtone for both SMS and calls.

justblogging said...

The default input for Lenovo A65 is the Android Keyboard which is a QWERTY pad. But there's also a built-in Go Keyboard for Lenovo that can be set either QWERTY or Alphanumeric keypad.

Hi! Got this phone just last night and it's great. It's very useful especially now cause I am mostly using broadband and sometimes I go wi-fi whenever i go to the office.. I can easily check my emails without opening my bulky laptop especially on a crowded area when times i need most! Highly recommended for users!!

im newbie bout android phones, im planning to buy galaxy y pocket, after reviews made, i found out this a65 which i believed more satisfactory compared to galaxy y pocket.

Im curious if A65 has the same apps with y pocket which can read word documents, electronic spreadsheet or even slide presentations?
