ashu1105, 26 Mar 2013Dear all---finally having & using p770 from last 2 days.. Below is my inputs for u;-
Firs... moreHow can I root this phone?
Somebody has written that I cannot install/doesnt have Google's playstore.
How to fix this.
Pls help me out with this.
1.Price - You can't get a Dual core 1GB ram IPS display of international brand at this price
- Also the display clarity(PPI) is also very good.
(with this phone ,Galaxy Grand is a NOT choice to be considered!!!)
2.Ofcourse the battery !!
3.LED notification for Missed call and SMS - which is very handy
4.Software like schedules Power on/off ,Battery saving software etc are usefull to optimize the standby timings.
5.No unwated softares in there unwated partition
1.Bit on bulky and heavier side
2.Only 1 button to wake the device
3.Completeness of Android porting - Doesn't affect the general users ,but affects advaned users and programmers!!
4.Development community is less leading to the lack of different flavours of ROM and firmwares
nikita, 10 May 2013can u describe more about ur experience using Lenovo p770.. coz i really want to buy this phone..I would simply say just go for it.I bought it after lot of research and gsm reviews.Thanks gsm for helping me out to buy this phone.Battery is very imp for any phone.Imagine u r gng on a long journey and suddenly ur phone's battery finish,it feels like almost we are lost somewhere.BUt,wt this phone,u will not face such a situation,and u can help others as well to come out of such situation,by charging their phone wt p770 using OTG cable.
The only problem i faced is in bright summer sun,it doesnt automatically become bright,but if ur display is full bright,then it is not an issue.
No compass,but not a problem wt GPS direction
Battery definitely lasts two days and also charges fast
a little bit weightier,but not a big deal,u will not feel d weight
plays high end games,i have played asphalt7,which is 1.6GB
Speakers are not that loud,but ok u can manage
camera quality is very good,has auto focus and many other features
plays high quality videos smoothly

I am also having the eeepad with keyboard dock for the last 18m. About the LG L7 - it has 512mb (vis 1gig with P770) of RAM /ICS (vs JB) OS / Pixel density of 217ppi (vs 245ppi) and a1700mah (vs 3500mah) battery with a rated talk time of about 6h. These are the cons. But Corning gorilla glass (not present in P770) and presence of compass (Not present in P770) is the pros. I would still opt for Lenovo for the price range you are talking about. If you are thinking in the range of L7 specifications- micromax, swipe and a whole bunch of others have for a lesser price range, with similar or better specifications.
Not planning to route for now. Dont have the time or necessity.
USB card reader, thumb drives work without rooting with the OTG (Some one had asked earlier).
BTW survived a two foot fall when i bent forward. Have to be careful when you have it in your shirt pocket :).
I am using this phone for about month and a half. The phone is awesome. I have tested each and every feature that Lenovo states about. The GPS is working well, Battery is working well, Display is Good, Has Dual Sim, Plays Even heavy games very smoothly, USB on the go working (charged another phone as well as connected and transferred data from flash drive). The best phone i can say in below 15000 range. The only problem i found on this phone is its display in the sun...u cant see anything on the screen in the sun...but thats the problem with most of the phones....But this is a very nice phone...

Not a big fan of high end specs n battery in most important factor. Button thing shouldn't be a problem.I have Asus transformer Tc 101 tab n using for nearly year which has only single button to lock n unlock n stil intact. So would you recommend me that phone.I was also looking for LG optimus l7 II dual. Which would you recommend. Thanks.
smalltowndoc, 09 May 2013After contemplating and religiously reading all the reviews and youtube videos on this phone, ... morehey please try to find that if this phone can be rooted or not?????????????
Anybody able to switch on the data connection with help of different programs like Tasker,SecureSetting etc? other than manually switching it on by going to the settings menu?
After contemplating and religiously reading all the reviews and youtube videos on this phone, i finally bought it. I had an LG optimus one before (and before that Sendo x / Treo 650 / Treo 300 in that order). Optimus one was good but its battery life had reduced to charging twice a day with no data thro wifi / 3g usage. Replacement batteries were not available.
I bought P770 from ebay for Rs 13500. It came in the original pack with a VAT paid bill. The original packing had a user guide of about ten pages...which was totally useless (I had been searching for english user guide through net before and had not found it). The carton noted that the phone had been made in China and had a manufacturing date of March 2013. It had also a list of Service centers in India.
I had difficulty in opening the back cover since i was scared i will break it if opened wrongly (there being no user manual). When i put the battery, it showed about 30% charge and the usage counter showed 30h of usage (So the seller had probably used it for 30h). I charged the battery to full...in about 3.5h. It did not come to 100% but stayed at 99% for about 30m and hence removed the charger.
Logged in the gmail id and downloaded all the necessary stuff through wifi...no video viewing or MP3 listening or surfing. The battery lasted for 48h when it came to 15%. Single SIM with WIFi on for probably 15h/ no bluetooth or 3g.
Project butter makes things really smooth and when i looked for an update, it said mine was the current version...so no software update needed. It comes with three default screens but can be increase up to 9 at the least. (i use two screens for direct dialing frequently called contacts).
Light flow which tries to control the indicator lamp to different colors does not work. The indicator lamp has only two colors - Red for charging and solid green for charged. Slow blinking green for missed calls and missed sms. Profile manager does not work ( i tried turning on wifi for 1minute every thirty minutes).
Because there is only one physical key, it needs to be pressed each time you have to unlock and that worries me whether it will ruin it in the longer run. (The optimus had three other physical keys which when pressed will turns on the screen for swiping it open).
Some one had written about preferred wifi with which it will automatically connect, i did not find any specific option for that.
Am i satisfied? Yes. Would i have bought any other phone....may be a Nokia 720...more expensive but has better navigation without data connection and a great battery...but was not too keen for Windows os. At this price range with 1gig RAM and a large battery with Jelly Bean OS, you cannot better P770. ...Micromax, wickedleaks, Swipe all have better specifications EXCEPT battery which i guess is the most important. No use in having a Ferrari, if you cannot go anywhere reliably.
Will continue my observations. this is my payback for GSM Arena's members helping me out with their views. if anybody has any queries, i can answer it.
