I've had this phone for more than 6 months and I've regretted choosing it ever since I got it. I've had the OS reformatted (as recommended by my service provider) and the problem is the same: Delayed messages and multiple transmission of messages. I emailed the service center of lenovo and they never replie. Never again, never again. Lenovo sucks

Wallpapers changes automatically after 2 or 3 days. Hanging problem. Battery backup is fine.

Buying this phone is one of my biggest regrets ever. It's not "Lenovo" but "the 512 MB RAM". This is barebones enough to run most apps, but in a sluggish manner.

Other aspects of the phone are fine enough for the price. But, as with anything that we buy, performance will decide the user experience... and the A516 often makes me feel aggravated. I've tried to solve the poor performance by shutting down most of the apps running in the background like Facebook and Twitter. But it's still sluggish. Waze would suddenly go quiet (it often crashes).

Do yourselves a big favour by not buying anything with less than 1 GB RAM. It's too late for me and I'll just have to write this off as "money wasted".
