This is so good to write a comment on A390 after 4 years of heavy use. I purchased this 390 in Q1 of2013. At that time it was a great deal of budget phone at 7.5k Pune IN. Let's get into my journey with it. Initially Camera 5mp was good. Took lots of outdoor pics n were good. Video and audio quality was super. I recorded many videos which are still usuable. Coming to connectivity...it is a 3G phone so it gave me good access over the Internet. However, Telecom providers had some issues and I keep on changing every now and then. It has nothing to do with lenovo. So, about the display it is just fine considering the time of launch and period of smartphone competition in india. Voice calls on this phone is very clear. Battery was fine at the time of its 6 month old but started to drain fast after it reach 6 month of usuage. The Display had issue after 2 years and repaired it at authorised lenovo service centre at 2.5k
A390 at Present March 2017.
-Battery gets drained in 1 hour with gaming and voice calling activity.
-3G connectivity is working fine till date
-Camera is fine and working till date.
-Voice calls quality reduced after display replay.
-Heating issue till date from its purchase date.
-Loudspeakers working fine till date. Nice to listen music
-Back Panel one of its lock has been broken but holds it firmly till date.
Finally I want to say that I spent 7.5+2.5=10k guys please buy a phone that can last at least 3-5 years without repairs. Be very smart in buying your next smartphone in India.

Can the camera work from the front ?
