Even I updated my phone on the very day I got it. Day before yesterday. But the hearing problems was very apparent. Of course it does not happen in every device.

Sharath Nakka, 22 Jan 2016I received my k4 note today and I'm not happy with its camera and its heating for no reason. ... moreJust tell them very seriously that the phone is heating up like hell well over 45 degrees celcius withing 10-15mins of normal usage. Tell them that it is defective and you have checked it for a day or two to see if the problem persisted even after software updates. Tell them the problem is still persisting and the phone cannot be used like that because the heat will affect us when we want to take calls.

Amazon did not allow me to post a review. So here is my observation as a user and from a day experience.
Lenovo gave too much hype about this phone which upset many because of the cpu they added in it. But this device is still a Killer Phone at a price range of 12K INR and under $200. You will not find a phone of this spec with everything included without major compromises. Only let down is the low speed MT chipset but it should not bother you unless you are a gamer.
Build quality is awesome feels like premium no gaps. Two dedicated micro sim slots and an addon micro sd slot. All 3 can be active same time(most phones compromise here by including a hybrid slot)
The phone doesn't heats up or restart as said by many(mostly false info). I did a 283mb update on day one and now everything is fairly fine.
UI is fast and responsive though Lenovo bloated the device with too many preinstalled softwares which reduced free internal close to 9G - not impressive
Fingerprint is working well enough.
Battery backup is quite good enough to run you through a day.
Camera is decent both front and back. But limited features would prefer something like oppo camera.
There is a screenguard which is average along with a transparent back case which attracts scratches so ease
The octacore processor does its job brilliantly most of the time.
Bundled softwares are not useful.
Theme Center is Joke - just six skins does a wallpaper and icon change and no option to download more from internet.
Game Center - another useless store and very limited.
My friends are impressed so as am. Real value for money.

JIN, 22 Jan 2016TQ .. will we get the actual pic quality of 13mp camera wht abt hd video recording??A big No. The camera is below average.

My Asus zenfone 2 laser camera was awesome when compared with k4 note.
I guess amazon doesn't want the cons of the phone to be posted under user reviews so than they can sell more. Suggest me a reason to return the phone.
I am returning the product after all.
And I have talked with a Amazon customer support person and asked about why they are not allowing product reviews on the product page. guess their reason? A technical glitch that they were unaware of. Sounds like bullshit to me.
They were doing a PR campaign for this phone release for weeks, and boasted about their 1sec sales. I am pretty sure this product release is high on their priorities, so there is no way they would have missed "unable to review" problem until 3 days after release. It sure as hell looks like they are deliberately stopping to that more customers can buy the phone without any proper reviews. The cusomer support person says it really is a bug, but I don't believe him. We all know how tech gaints manipulate stuff, I am still suspecting the same here.
Any suggestions on what to do here. They will be refunding me ofcourse. But there is a bigger problem with Amazon here. Should I just let go or should I do something else to escalate this apparent manipulation for getting better sales?
