Lenovo s850 doesn't have compass/magnetometer
Lenovo s850 doesn't have expandable memory.
Lenovo s850 has no scratch resistant glass.

I have been using this phone for last 6 days. Excellent phone. Gr8 display, lo... moreI use Samsung charger as well as it is 2.5 vs 1.35A of Asus charger. Higher current charges faster. There is a limit though.
Don't try to use Oppo Vooc charger on ZF.
I have been using this phone for last 6 days. Excellent phone. Gr8 display, looks, performance. No issues with wi-fi, 3G, etc. GPS working fine. Camera looks fine. Its imposible to use this phone with one hand with a flip cover because of its size your thumb will not be able to cover whole screen. Loudspeaker is poor. earphone output is good. No issues in connecting to PC. wi-fi hotspot works well.
But Battery is not up to the mark. Drains very fast.
But it will improve with KITKAT.
The charger that comes in box takes almost 4 hours to charge 100% battery. I used my samsung charger and it charged in 2 hours. Pl comment on this.

Guys. I just installed dolphin browser on my asus zenfone 5 and it wasn't working at all. Crashing all the time. This is the first app that hasn't worked at all on my phone. Clash of clans crashes sometimes but it works most of the time.
Anyone else faced app crashes?
I tried it after factory reset, tell me is it possible to install 1.16 firmware when I'm already on 1.17, on want to install 1.16 first as Asus skipped it for me, then I want to update it to the latest, I mean over 1.16
Tomazz, 26 Aug 2014I am not in any way connected to Asus or any of its subsidiaries.It was a joke. Thx man
haidersoftt, 26 Aug 2014Thank you very much for your Response ,
I am going to purchase this phn from Saudi Arab , M... moreIn this price range it well be hard to find another well-built phone with even similar specs.
As for white back getting dirty - I use Nillkin case to protect it, but on the other a flap case with hole at the top. Both original and fake active flap case replace original back plate, so you can just get flap case from day one and keep white one if need be.
Or get a good case, I like Nillkin because of immaculate precision they are made with, and not losing any colour like some cheap crap. They are from 7 or 8$ up including shipping on eBay.
Saudi models should be WW, so all good there.
