I'm using lenovo a516 for the past 6months. At first, the phone is very frustrating to use. (Laggy,slow, suddenly force close app. overall poor performance) but once i flashed it with a custom rom (allegro) it became much better phone. Also i installed some apps that can help boost the ram of this phone. (Ram expander, ram manger pro, start up mnger etc) now i can play some good games like leo's fortune, modern combat 5 & 4, dead trigger 1&2, nfs, nba2k14 (runs smoothly) hope lenovo make some adjustment (kitkat upgrade). We all know that this is a cheap phone but please consider not all people can buy high end phones. Thanks :)

Wish there's release of kitkat.. :( pls. Lenovo!? :(

All u people complaining. . It's a cheap phone made by a Chinese company that's trying to compete internationally. . Yea if ur expecting Samsung or anything like that . U should sell the so called waste of money and buy urself some brains. . Ur getting wat ur paying for so stop nagging. As for all the issues. . There's isn't a phone in the world without any. So don't hate all..appreciate!

> In reply to icecreamsandwhich @ 2014-08-03 18:12 from tSu0 - click to readThere is no such option in Lenovo A516 or for that matter in Android 4.2.2 Jellybean version of this phone. Though this simple option was there in the earlier Android versions. Could anyone help in enabling the feature of "Transfer Apps to SD card" and "Default location for installing Apps to SD card" on Android 4.2.2 version phones,in the easiest possible way.Thanks in advance..
