> In reply to milan @ 2015-05-13 14:42 from ttwS - click to readi too am observing the problem of shutdown with Gionee. Phone is not starting up manually. observed this shut down when I am turning on the WIFI. Restarting automatically when alarm is preset. really irritating. Other issues observed are, the last missed call is overriding the existing missed calls on home screen. Not able to set images in mobile or images downloaded from other sources as home screen wallpaper. Image is displaying in blur. always requires to unlock phone even during a call otherwise the call cuts due to touch sensitivity :(

> In reply to Rajan @ 2015-05-21 21:52 from YQIv - click to readSome additional thoughts on how to manage your battery. First, the screen is a top power user on any phone. Set your display to 33% brightness and take it off auto brightness. An amoled screen is more easily viewed, in my opinion, very well in low brightness. Use darker colors in your themes. Second, turn off wi-fi if not using it. When out and about, it continually scans for available networks and in my area (US) every single network is secured so I stand little chance of getting on one except for the freebies at restaraunts and such. Second: if you have no blutooth device, turn it off. Again, you have a system searching for something to connect to. Third, choose your apps wisely. Several browsers are terrible with power consumption. I use Chrome and battery use numbers are very good. Many built in apps from Gionee are never used so disable them. If you look at your power consumption list, you see that Android is a high user as it does include the apps preinstalled by Gionee. Anyway, I have another coming for me to use as a spare (really, I just wanted one) as they are available for $199 USD now. Mostly though because this is just an absolutely beautiful piece of hardware and I don't even mind the launcher. I will keep in touch if I think of any other ideas.

> In reply to Rajan @ 2015-05-21 21:52 from YQIv - click to readI just bought the Blu equivalent Vivo IV and had read ahead of time about the issue. I should note that I bought it for my daughter and after setting it up, I have not gotten her to hand it back over and never will. A 2300mlh battery is not really a small unit given it powers just 2 gigs of ram and an eight core processor where each core can run from 1.1-1.7GHz and add cores as needed. This should be a great processor choice for long life. Right out of the box, it showed 100% charge and I did not trust that figure. Even though you are not supposed to completely drain a lithium battery, many manufacturers recommend that once a month at the most. The idea behind that is for the internal software to set a base point for calculating a top and bottom level and all use algorithms are based on that. The odd thing was that when I got to an indicated 3% level, it refused to move after that and was at that point for a half hour. I charged it to 100% and sent her on her way. The next morning, she took it to school and did whatever, then when home, she was on the couch for what seemed like hours downloading every application she was used to from her old iPhone. About ten, it showed 23% left. My best guess is that the battery life reporting is inaccurate.

It is a very well designed phone ...... Yes I agree that it has a heating problem and gets hagnged sometimes but in a 20K market segment it offers very good specifications and one can consider this mobile when he or she is planning to buy a new phone. From my point of view I would rate this phone between 6.5 to 7 on a rate scale of 10.

The entire handset is acting as a heat-sink and that is a good thing. Be thankful that you have an octa core processeor that can use between one and eight cores depending on load. If you had a four core, you would be able to make toast on it.

I have a new Zenfone 2 and it has some bugs. I can't see too many differences between Kit Kat and Lollipop anywaybut under the hood there may be some better memory and battery management fixes.
