I agree. Worse phone I have ever had. Two in one year. First lasted for 5 months, that they gave me a new one, and new lasted for 8 months. Just couple of days ago, all the sudden stopped to work. Do not buy this phone.
I have the same problem it hangs up and overheated. If I tried to switch off but it will just automatically switch on again. If I try to switch off again, it takes a lot of pushing, and still gets back to switch on again....This is a gift of my daughter bought from Thailand and unfortunately. Many have the same problem. No good! I hope nobody will buy that phone anymore.

Phone reception is good, there is an easy fix. Just flash a modem image which matches the bands of your service provider for you region.

Nothing is wrong with this phone. Battery life is excellent, I flashed stock android kitkat (aosp) on this phone, fantastic. lasts 2 days medium-heavy usage, decent rear camera, ok front camera, I have had this phone for 11 months now, it fell face flat on concrete once, screen cracked up as any phone in its class would, ordered replacememt screen on amazon and ordered a leather case as well so it wouldnt happen again, got screen replaced at repair store, phone is of good build quality metal cover and hard plastic frame. Dont mine bad reviews, doesnt have fancy features like finger print scanner but it gets the job done with great hardware specs. If you are like a business type or any type of person for that matter then this is the phone for you, very professional
Phone started with weak signal reception withing purchase of 2 months. later on started getting switched off automatically withing 6 months. Front camera does not seems to be promising. Now its 14th month. faulty Network IC no signal reception. Horrible rsponse from their service centers asking to change motherboard for 5 thousand INR. Phone has become headache now. I am planning to get a new phone. Not advisable at all
i had purchased this mobile 0n 10/5/2014 from that date some time mobile is automatically switch of and at now days from one month at mobile using time it is overheated like you r not touching terrible. and now it is automatically hang and suddenly it is switched off.
in customer care there is no solution for that .so don't take this mobile.only money wastage.if there is any solution from company please suggest me.
What is the reason that my primary camera does not work properly after upgrading to 4.4 Kitkat
What does this update 'p780_8G_ROW_S119_130930_TO_P780_8G_ROW_S123_131231' mean ? Its abt 67mb firmware update, Is this firmware update will upgrade to kitkat 4.4? I dont want to update on kitkat. I have Android 4.2.1 in my phone. Is it for Android 4.2.2 ? Plz help me.
Before my p780 it great phone, battery awesome, signal good, perfomance great, camera good,desain i like it, display ok, but... after 14 month used it...
my p780 just got suddenly over heat with extrem hot, its happen twice, 1st time when its not used at all, 2nd when i watched youtube just with 20 minute used.
after the 2nd one, my p780 just got weak signal, but others function just normal..
and its not gurantee anymore ( i used for 14 month ), so i bring to repair service ( not official service center ) , more than 15 repair service refused to fix it, because they said it cant not be repair...
any help or idea friends ? because i see in others forum some user have some problem to, even if they bring it to official service center, still can not be fix it...
Anonymous, 17 Nov 2015Bought this phone and was able to use it for only for 7 months. The phone hung and won't turn ... moreThis happen to mine too.
Before my P780 goes down, it blinked for several times and made the battery dry.
Yesterday, unfortunately I cannot turn my phone on. Tonight I am going to bring my phone to Lenovo Service Center.
