AWFUL. I absolutely regret getting this phone. At first I thought that it would be great since it was getting rave reviews here back in August. Now, all I see are negative reviews with which I totally agree with.

Problem a. Battery drains extremely fast

Problem b. Charging Pin. Of course since the battery drains fast, you'll be charging the phone twice or even thrice in a day. On that note, the charging pin is not secure at all. I now have a hard time charging my phone as the charging pin is a bit "in" the phone. I had it fixed back in December. So yeah, this is the second time I've had this problem.

Problem C. It restarts itself. And of course, with the restart, the phone's battery goes down by 10 percent.

Problem D. Sound quality goes down as time goes by. At first I was so excited because it was so loud! Give it 3 months. It won't be so loud.

Problem E. Heats up. Quickly.

I cannot wait to exchange it for a better android phone. One that has a better battery and hopefully, a better processor/

I wasnt quite satisfied with this phone thats why I decided to get another phone from different brand. What I really didnt like about this phone is that its battery drains quickly, it heats up easily like crazy and it was definitely hard for me to deal with the screen's insensitivity and inaccuracy. Good thing this phone wasnt really that expensive.
For the future buyers: I would not basically recommend this phone wholeheartedly but if you want to try a Lenovo phone, they have good products that you might wanna get.

You wouldn’t believe guys.
As you go deep with this phone you’ll find out that it overheats up quickly, and I’ve got the solution and you wouldn’t believe it!
I forced my phone to overheat without rest by using a Utorrent(Yeah it always overheats everytime I download files using it) Then I saw the battery life and it is 22% then I turned my phone and I rested it after a few minutes it coils down a bit then I exposed my phone to the airconditioner just for 1 minute then I rested my phone for 1 day...(Gone sleeping) After I wake up I immediately charge my phone until it became fully charged then I discharge and rested the phone for 15 minutes then I turned it off and play some heavy games and download with the torrent after those thephone never heated up that much.
I know that you don’t believe , but still try this.
(Note:The phone Heats up aftetr 15 minutes of playing games, so make it over heat just for 3-5 hours)

Its worst phone one can have. Contacts keep corrupting on its own, become uncomfortably hot if you try to use its hot spot, and its biggest problem seems its uncontrollable gravity sensor that keeps bringing up all sort of scre NHS or it can even start playing default ring tones. I purchased it but now regretting deeply. Present problem I am facing is it just changed its language and I am trying to set it back to English but unable to reach right menu or screen. My last option is to format it and spend in necessary time on it. My strong recommendation to all. Just don,t buy it. And my request to lenovo guys or whoever maintaining this site to just tell me how to switch back to English mode.
