This is an extremely good and a value phone. Very handy and doesn't break at all. It falls off my hand every day, it throw it here and there but it's very stubborn and is barely even scratched. The preformance may be a bit slow but what else would you expect from a phone with this price. The camera is VERY decent but only with an app called OpenCamera. It takes stunning pictures in the HDR mode but again you have to have the app.
i bought it yesterday night and charged fully. But in today morning noticed only below 10% charge is remained! how this happened?
Works well i am using 1 and half years with small issue because it was fell down lot of times but works good i like it and i am using custom miui rom so it was not drain the battery so much thank u lenovo
Good Mobile...i am using this mobile since aug2016...till now there is no issues...except battery
Best mobile, best performance, I am operating from two years two months, best verient of Lenovo, 2 gb ram, 13 mp camera, HD, Dolby Atmos sound, clear & bright screen. Yes facing some battery draining but no problem. Thanks Lenovo
I'd this mobile and lost it at Nov 19th 2016. I really love this mobile.
I have this phone for 4 months now and for $120, it's okay. It lags when you don't connect to the internet for the first time and it heats up REALLY quickly. And the more it heats up, the faster your battery will drain. The battery is awful, if you leave it on with mobile data for way too long, the battery dies within minutes. Camera is okay, and for 13mp,you really have to balance the effects cause it's sometimes pixelated or blurry. Front cam has no effects whatsoever, and uses default Android (remember this is Android 5.0, so camera app pretty much sucks) although it runs smoothly if all notifs and other background apps are closed. But it also is not upgradeable to 6 without root. I recommend you buy it if you have no other option.
Best Phone i ever used, reasonable price...
A bit improvement is needed, you should install miui os in this phone, its the best....
also, add silicone case is a good choice (i have been in many accident, phone drops from above 1m, it still fine, not a stratch on this amazing rigid phone), camera sensor need a change (low light photo is so bad, need an improvement because its full of noise)....
to sum this up, for the next 1 year, i can still use this phone, and i have used this for more than 1 year. so rigid, nice phone, hope lenovo make another good one version, with good heat dissipation, because this phone is so hot, i can feel the chilli in my hand...
I hate Lenovo ...m really feeling bad that I trusted Lenovo. Giving 9000 I buyed Lenovo ...ota updates never gets installed ..over heating ...flash gets dimmed ....OMG .....I told as much as people not to buy Lenovo handsets as they are always have some or other defects .....
Please don't buy Lenovo until they see that lenovibile works better in quality etc ......hopeless people .....I can nituer exchange or sell it ..bad very bad Lenovo

Absolutely nothing the update is only for stability and performance improvements. No security updates or Android update. Lenovo is just a disappointing company.
We have an update for this phone. From s038 to s045, anyone tried it? Where can we check changelog? (If there is any)
Rubbish fone. terrible battery and its own charger starts acting funny after a few weeks now have to use other chargers. trying so hard to dispose of this fone. never will i buy a lenovo again
