D.Ambrose, 17 Jul 2016I have been three years with this phone and nothing is problem with this phone on my observati... moreThe same is with me for last 1year. Before 5 months the google play store was missing.. But I managed with mobo market. After some months I got the message that it is in meta mode. I visited the tecnician and he repaired it. Last day there was a new message to reset and the reset button does nothing..
I was really happy with this phone for the first few months till I missed play store...
Now my Lenovo s820 is a brick

Sefie, 14 Aug 2016What is your current version of android?Im still using 4.2 Jelly Bean.
Hi.. I just want to ask if it is ok to upgrade my lenovo S820 android KitKat to lollipop?, how? Thank you . 😊
Ive been using this phone for 2 years, & here are some opinions I have about it.
* 12mp rear camera loses its details in low light, but very good performance in capturing panoramas or closeups. 2mp front is mediocre.
* I browse a lot using Chrome & Youtube, & I notice my phone starts to heat up after about 2 hours. That was a year ago. Now, even when Im only listening to my music, the phone heats up pretty easily.
* The battery doesnt last that long, I had to charge it once a day. But a 2000mah battery for this price range is quite okay.
* Has minimal lags, but it only happens when I open multiple tabs (about 10-12 tabs) on Chrome.
Those were my experiences in these 2 years. Im sure other people have different opinions. Overall, of course it doesnt perform flawlessly, but for its price, I think its really worth buying. Have a good day! :)
I have been three years with this phone and nothing is problem with this phone on my observations..i think this is the best choice and then best phone : )
# i love my lenovo

Yo the good news is that you can install CUSTOM ROMS and I did and my phone became 4.4.4 :) :)
I've searched in needrom.com and has installed the pure xperia z3 kitkat 4.4.4 . works like a charm better than the official update s820_s223_150119 :P

revlly, 16 Sep 2015my Lenovo s82- not working well after I update to vibeUI.....my google play services was not w... morethis is because you flashed international to a china firmware; and thus it don't have gapps included. So for the vibe 2.0 that you mentioned, it can be fixed only when you root and install the gapps.
Disadvantage of this ROM:
Not have google applications include on the ROM, must be installed your self
It only have 2 languages, English and China language
Contains many china applications that does not working outside china country.
Only can be install from china firmware only, using sd card method.
Here follow this link below if you want to re-install the ROM with gapps included
