> In reply to aryamehr @ 2014-06-08 16:26 from utFL - click to readi believe it's subjective. We're still only working with 2500mah battery and because of this, I conservatively use my phone. I also work 9-18:00 and have little time to just peruse on my phone playing games, skyping etc. But what i will say is i dont have my settings on sync. locations are turned off, and when I know i'm not going to use my phone, i put it in emergency mode thats provided by lenovo power ver 2.7 i believe. (downloaded it from a link i got off xda forum) this allows for only calls and texts to come through. I don't believe in push notifications from data hogging apps. if I have the time to sit and chat, I will initiate, not the other way around

I play games but not for hours on end. I'll play Machinarium on the train ride home (20 mins) while listening to music. I'll see a drop in battery life but nothing crazy substantial. I also charge my phone all the way and let it trickle charge until 100% and let it discharge all the way and i ONLY charge on AC adaptor. not usb. it will take forever to charge via usb. I baby the battery and it has been good to me. If i want to plow through it in 4-6 hours on a weekend then I guess i could.

Not sure if this helps, i'm just a conservative user i suppose. The emergency mode is amazing for those times where i'm working and can't be on my phone (I'm a teacher) then I just turn it off, browse a few websites during my breaks and go from there.

> In reply to Smile @ 2014-06-11 14:53 from XNtq - click to readI'm using it since last October, I paid only rs23000,when outside price is 27-29k, it's really amazing phone in every aspect, one thing you have to consider if you like very much running your phone on latest os version, then lenovo disappoint very badly, last December 4.2.1, update, then...... Nothing, camera superb in video or photos, night mode very good for a mobile camera, you can view samples in google + under ajit Jose / ajith Jose, no one have never seen a phone so thin, if you buying it also order a clear transparent back cover that is very tough, strong, sturdy. Call clarity good, speaker volume bit low, headphones good.

> In reply to abhishekraj @ 2014-06-08 08:11 from McxC - click to readBro, please read the suggestion I've given in 12/06/2014 related to battery drain. Remember this is a full HD, 5.5inch screen not like that of note 2 or s3,and intel processor isn't power hungry it consumes 5-9% only during normal usage, check on lenovo power software .facebook, google+, radio, are the power consuming apps, if you're not using it much, try to disable it, and if needed, go to play store, search for facebook or google +, then the enable option will be shown, it's only take few seconds if you are on 3G, I'm going in this way, and idle power consumption also very much reduced. Try, and you will be convinced. To disable you have to download a cleaner, go into their app manager, you will see disable option. One thing don't activate ""kill tasks when screen off" it Will interfere with battery charge updation, and you will get wrong charge %.clear?

> In reply to abhishekraj @ 2014-06-08 08:11 from McxC - click to readI'm using it for 6 months, liked it very much. Battery problemcan be iimproved by
1, open lenovo power, tap on the Big 'S ' on the right upper area of the screen, then a page will be shown, activate screen lock optimization.
2,go to the lenovo power settings activate smart endurance.
3,adjust display brightness to auto through settings.
4.if you are using google+, facebook etc, they may take ram capacity from 80 mb - 190 mb sometimes, I have observed it and cause fast draining of battery, for that, there is lenovo power widget on one of home screen, use the '"brush " symbol to stop the ram using apps, will show the extended battery life on the lower part of screen.
5. Install a cleaner app( I'm using clean master ) and there will be option to disable apps that aren't needed to you, don't disable factory set, important apps. And compare the battery life I think it will make you wonder.
6 disable auto synchronization if you don't want it badly or extendt time period .
7. After using camera tap boost on the cleaner, it will be still running and may be using 120mb of the ram.
Think it's clear to all
