Anyone able to make those work?
How do you share youtube video to wassup, line, wee chat.
I click the share icon on youtube video but only FB, IG, Twitter appeared.
For other phones all social media appear as long as i've installed it via google play.

Hi, i used to buy this phone few weeks back..i just feel so disappointed with this model coz i'd use the other model (s920) which has been stolen from me..this model can't play any videos from fb, YouTube or tubemate..i've installed uc browser to solve this matter, but it seems not si much improve... Sometimes, this phone can't even connect to my 3g telco which i haven't had any problem with the s920 model..the camera quality for both also very poor..it says that this model has 13mp camera for rear but when i took photos, it sees like to be below 13mp...front camera seems like vga only even it says it has 2mp camera..so, i feel so bad about it performance compared with the s920 model that i had before..
Anonymous, 14 Apr 2015Im trying to get rid of the chinese text, get youtube to work and install my games on the sd card How do I remove all the Chinese text?
Just bought this phone, it's performance is good. However, I have two problems. First I installed the 'kindle' apps, but on the sign-in screen, I cannot go into the email and passwords fields to type in the fields. Second, I have similar problem in watching youtube, where can I find the older version if it will work, I am not familiar with the Apps. Thanks.
I got this phone the other day. Thanks to all the guys here who posted on how to get two SIM cards working, or I'd have been exasperated. I don't have any problem with Youtube - I just used the Maxthon Browser which has it as a favourite. And phone came with Playstore, which worked fine.
1. Even though I've made "Default Write Disk" the SD card, not one app I've installed has used the SD card.
So is the SD card only useable for shifting files to?
2. As others have noted, no App2SD app works with this phone. I installed ESFile Explorer and it shows all the files being on "Emulated" and "SDcard0", with the actual SD card being labelled "Sdcard1" which is empty except for file "Lost.dir". Which probably explains why all the App2SDs don't work.
3. It is probably because I'm not used to Android 4.4 but I am really frustrated with how hard it now is make a shortcut to an app or a browser shortcut. It used to be so easy - press on the screen, and up would come the shortcut menu.
4. There is only so much space available on the four screens for shortcuts to the apps. If I had several hundred apps - how would I access them, given that I can't find the App Menu shortcut which was present on every other version of Android that I had?
Anyhow, those are the problems. As all my other Android phones were low to mid range, I am quite delighted with the speed and performance of this phone. 4G worked instantaneously with my Aldimobile SIM card (which wouldn't deliver 3G in my ZTE phone}.
Vetcho, 19 Apr 2015Hello
I've received the phone a week but I can't get 4G working on it although it is selecte... moreIt only works with LTE band 1800 & 2100, if your Telco does not have support these bands, it won't work.
Bought it recently. Regret it. Bought it because is lenovo and I have a lenovo tablet which is fabulous and because it has dual sim feature. My problem is that its practically single sim because u can't receive call or text or email on both without kind of deactivating one and activating the other. I heard that if I update ROM it may fix problem but I am not sure. The touch screen is ridiculously insensitive and often I have to tap at a letter three four times before it registers on screen. Buyer beware.
