> In reply to Sam @ 2014-02-23 07:16 from vGAw - click to readI really dont understand what you guys are talking about. All those negativities mentioned by yoj people is wrong! I bought it 4 months ago from UAE and its working perfectly fine.
There is absolutely no problem in signals. Signals are full and 3g gets available whenever possible.
Someone wrote about screen problems. Sorry to say,you may have bought china A706. Capacitive touch is completely fine. Selects exactly where you press. Yes I will agree that it is 2 point icp screen.
Battery is awesome, even if you watch videos for long time.
Sound quality on both external and internal speakers are beautiful and clear superbness.
Flashlight is extremely bright.
Storage is enough. You can uninstall google app updates if you want more space.
Lenovo laucnher is AWESOME and its customisation is nerve cutting cool.
No lags, no poor performance.
Gaming experience is good except for playing haeavy games coz of adreno 205.
Video quality is cool and Camera has MANY features and cool quality.
You can entertain youraelf by using lenovo A706 without having to root it.
In short, everything is perfect. THOSE WHO TALK BAD ABOUT THIS BEAUTY SHOULD RECONSIDER FROM THEY BOUGHT IT.
ITS ONE OF THE BEST BUDGET PHONES AFTER MOTO G AND NEXUS 5.
BELIEVE ME FELLAS, WHATEVER I WROTE IS UTTERLY TRUE AND ACCORDING TO EXPERIENCE. THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING WRONG WITH LENOVO A706.
Highly recommended!!!

Lenovo is too noob to make android phones perfectly, sometimes overheating causes by a factory defect, the ROM.
Don't worry if your a706 is overheating,it's not the battery it's the core.
Make sure than your phone is turned off while charging.
And the voltage of the plug must be 220 below.

Ive been using this phone for about 4 months now. Its more or less a good phone with somewhat a sturdy build quality.
PROS :
Quad Core processor(After rooting if you keep all cores online, youll really feel the increase in performance)
OK viewing angles.
Still view image capture is good.
sound quality is good
Internet usage is good
cheap price.
CONS :
Outdated processor of old architecture (Snapdragon 200)
bad GPU(adreno 203)
cannot play 1080p videos, some 720p videos can be played.
mkv videos frame really badly.
UI is slow and laggy at times and tbh really stupid.
I would have preferred stock android on this.
REALLY BAD, TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE VIDEO OUTPUT(Even on 720p hd option the output is really bad. please can you fix this by changing the video format to mp4 instead of .3gp format in an update).
Touch screen sensitivity is poor inaccurate and really annoying at times.
Heating on prolonged usage
(Ironically the old architecture of the processor was supposed to help in saving power and reduce heating.)
default keyboard layout in landscape mode is a little down and the space key is sometimes difficult to type
So all in all, not really a phone to be recomended.

> In reply to CADYVAUGHN @ 2014-03-31 04:28 from Kg%m - click to readThe thing about this phone is that the default ui takes up about 25-30% of the total RAM. So effectively youre left with about 756mb of RAM. The phones OS also occupies a lot of space so thats why you get less storage space on this phone.

I understand of battery problem. My mobile has the least battery life. But when I charge it for at least 3-4 hours. It lasts for long time. And does not drain even a bit while using it.

So here's suggestion to all of you who feel that battery does not last. Please charge it continuously for long time. If possible switch off the phone and charge. You'll definitely get better results.
