I have been using this phone for the past one year, except battery nothing id better in this phone... Nearly visited 8 times to service center @ Chennai from the date purchased and changd phone board twice,very pathetic phone..
Major issues are network, signal, low ear noise, less speed....
Not worth for the money....

The lenovo for features is good enough. But you have to try to online games. You have to play about 1 hours or more. I'm sure you can see letter......

I have been using it for more than 8 months..Its quite good..the battery life is excellent but...I would advice the buyers to not allow the battery to drain below 30% ...then the apps become too slow..sometimes the set hangs..

About GB, if you remember, GB had so much updates back in the day because it was buggy as hell! KK seems to have taken a misstep on this phone, not because of Google or AOSP but the idiots at lenovo who were assigned to portKK on this phone. KKis quite good and stable as I experienced first hand on previous lenovo phone particularly the s930 which when I got it was in JB and had an OTA to KK without any ill effects. It's just the OEM developers who are messing it up. I bet, if you could port stock Google Android on this, it won't have the problems as encountered by so many users.

I bought a new one from their service center here in the Philippines and judging by the look and feel of it (aside from the rubber insert), nothing's special about the plate. Sorry.

I just updated to s228 firmware a week ago and I must admit, it's as trouble free as the the first time I jumped to s226 (I skipped the previous update prior to s226 and did the same with s228). Aside from the stupid decision of lenovo of not including their previous "backup and restore" app, (which I was furiously insisted by the system prior to upgrade form JB to KK that I use the said app. Now I can't retrieve my old SMS trapped in the blamed dead app) everything's peachy. No mods needed. No network, signal, battery or notification problems as stated in the previous posts. Granted I got this bnew last November (8GB) but it has a 2013 production date it hasn't suffered any ill effects as numerously mentioned. Knock on wood! I hope lenovo stops KK development and focus on getting lollipop right on this machine instead. Even though this will be my last lenovo (nay, all chinese) branded phone. I'm sticking with Japanese, Korean and Taiwanese brands for all my android and PC needs, thank you very much!

Never ever buy the hell phone.

Only battery is good.

No USSD messages

Hang & Restart

They will never replace once purchade date is more than 7 days.
