the specs are terrible i rather buy local phone here in Philippines
Lenovo A690 is one of the best mobiles I have ever used.
It is user friendly. It's camera is average. Blutooth, GPS, GPRS, Bluetooth etc. are excellent.
To make the phone most useful go for rooting by using Kingo Root. After rooting you can disable the camera sound (which was not possible earlier), you can remove some unnecessary apps(after backing them up with Titanium app, which you can restore later if you want)and thus can save much more space. After installing all my necessary apps (including whats app, facebook update, google map updates, adobe reader, msoffice reader, skype, dictionaries, cleaning apps, contact and sms apps, etc.) I still have around 80mb free in Lenovo A690. Highly customizable.
Offcourse there is a problem of unrecognizing phonebook contacts sometimes. Just use rootcleaner app. It will rectify this problem instantly.
I encourage people to buy this phone.

Horrible phone.. cant download any application coz of low internal memory.. stupid phone pls don buy it..
this phone sucks. i bought it like 3 months ago and now its lcd is broken. it has no history of mishandle or whatsoever. i went to my friend to have my phone check and he also had a costumer with the same problem i have. if you want to have a lenovo phone, try a516 or higher for assurance that your phone will last longer. i have a a516 now and runs very smooth
some of the basic operations on device can be read at the user manual, take some time to read it..
