My screen has all of a sudden become become dark & when brightness increased, it is showing the previous screen in the back ground... The screen is flickering like a tubelight. Please help if u know what this could be?
I have even tried the solutions listed, but doesnt work.
removed the sims, Sd card, factory reset the fone, powered the fone for off for 8 hrs, still no getting bac to normal screen resolution!
This happened 2 days after upgrading to kitkat & downloading Game Asaplt7 and playing it for 15 min. There after, stopped playing and was chatting on whatsapp for less than 10min and the whatsapp screen froze on the screen in the background . Hence even after factory reset i can see the same whatsapp screen image lightly in the background & the display with a very low resolution....... Even the LENOVO logo at startup is distorted.

Fone details: P780
Purchased on: 9/7/2014 (4 weeks old)
Firmware: kitkat- P780_ROW-8G_S221_140729

I have updated to Kit kat. One update of some 700 mb and then another update of 177 mb, and now the phone has became more awsome then before. I can bet this is the best phone in this price range. After the update, it became a piece of envy for others. more features and better UI after update. Most important now wireless display has been activated. All previous features are there plus new features are added. Just one word:Awesome.

> In reply to L.Borges @ 2014-08-05 21:23 from 9LM9 - click to readWhen connecting your P780 to computer and if you're using a PC (Windows) check your phone, the settings for USB will pop up on your phone and then choose the connection what you need. There are MTP, PTP, USB Storage (SD Card) and USB debugging. If you want to access your external memory card choose the USB Storage and if you want to access your Internal memory you have to choose the MTP but you need to install first the Lenovo suite which is installed on your P780. If you're using MAC you need to download the Android File Transfer on MAC (www.android.com/filetransfer)

after my upgrade to kitkat, theres a problem with the call log, earlier multiple entries of the same contact were bunched together, now they are all seperate and cluttered, any idea of the proper settings, i couldnt find any, or is there any call log app that will replace or give an alternate to the call logs list that will solve this problem

> In reply to RV-P780 @ 2014-08-03 18:11 from vb$N - click to readDo not charge UA phone with a different charger as the lenovo p780 charger has 2amp output and others have only 1.2amp output. And don't try other USB cables with the charger that is provided. Its just a waste of time. U won't get UA phone properly charged if u use a different cable.
Try this
1) turn off ur phone .
2) remove simcard and memory card
3) press and hold the red button for 10sec
4) after that insert sim n mem card.
5) turn on and calibrate ur battery.

If this doesn't solve ur problem do a factory data reset.

Before the update my device was always restarting, the battery was not charging on usb not working to see internal or external memory, low network signal. After upgrading to KitKat: failed to reboot from scratch, great camera works properly, battery discharge time + fast continues with load connected device with fault, still fails to see usb storage, the last update was 177 MB which seems only to add Asphalt 7 game did not work. So to me it was worth the upgrade, since the problems were solved reboot devices, about the other defects hope that a new upgrade solve.

> In reply to Krushna @ 2014-08-04 09:38 from 2ZHe - click to readI have upgraded to KitKit 4.4.2 and it is good, a Bit of change , All Applications of one main screens, unlike Jealybean where you just had you important apps on main screens.
1)Here once you do the update, take a backup on the SD card.
2) Do the main storage memory setting after installs to External memory. It has the Move to SD card option.
3) If possible install a 32GB ultra SD card...I have seen the difference in performance, as No installed app I keep in the internal memory.
4)) Kitkat is working just fine and no problem with Upgrade.

Wait for the new update for Kitkat or you can monitor the reviews for Kitkat for Lenovo if its already perfect and thats the time you can upgrade your phone. As you can see for now there's a lot of complain for Kitkat for Lenovo.
