Can't play Pokemon Go on S141 build, the phone heats too much and it makes Mobile Data going slow and sometimes inactive or freezing. I haven't update the phone for some month and it works fine.. I guess.. (there was one automatic update from factory build to S141, which is not cool)
Seeing my friends phone being very fast and smooth playing Pokemon Go and I am standing there solving the heat issue, it's kinda sad :( anyone has any tips to keep it cool? (or maybe to keep the mobile data working fine). The heat issue goes on when i play pokemon at some times, like when I was playing it outside in a warm night, in the middle of a busy crowd (like inside a festival), or when i got out at 3 pm and it was cloudy from 12 pm which shouldn't be that hot anymore (or does the phone heats up from taking UV?). Today i was playing it under harsh sunlight at 12 pm, when every phone gets very hot, so it's not anyone fault but mine (the phone temperature rise up over 40 degree, and I goes back to a cool room with air conditioner to help it cool faster, hope nothing breaks inside.. for the record, this is the first time it got this hot)
Is the heat issues related to how i fill both sim card? one of them has zero reception for weeks, and the other one works on 4G and for some bad reception issues, it changes very frequently from 4G to 3G or H+.. Resetting the phone, clearing cache and such from the recovery menu will be my last resort if my body could handle playing Pokemon Go at this slow pace.. I have anger management problem, so its probably the best win-win situation for me and the phone...
So about New OTA A7000-a_Plus_S308_160618_ROW Update
ive been looking for it should i update.most cases phone turns to be so heavy after getting new OS.(Happened to my samsung S2 backdays after upgrade from GBread > ACsandwich) that was 2 stage of android version upgrade tho) jsut curious. >.>
need best suggestion Thanks in advance
freeman, 09 Jul 2016is this vr ready?actually yes, if you hold the power button, there is a "switch to VR mode" option under airplane mode. it duplicates your android screen side by side on screen, allowing you to use your OS in your VR headset, the trick part is interfacing with it while its in the goggles. I recommend you get a controller with a "cursor" mode.

Lenovo A7000a User, 03 Jul 2016After upgrading through OTA A7000-a_Plus_S308_160618_ROW and upgrading baseband version AIO.... moreI think you've got a bum antennae already mate, sorry about that- have it checked, cos I don't have those problems.
Just updated, and i noticed a few things already. On Lolipop i got around 600-700 MB free ram, but on Marshmallow i got about 800-900, and it does seem to be much smoother so far- I'm glad that Marshmallow allows me to store more of my apps on my SD card now too.
Anonymous, 28 Jun 2016I recommend factory reset as u already upgraded to Marshmallow

finally Yesterday i got official update for marshmallow. after upgrading to android marshmallow everything looking prety good.
Do factory reset after the upgrade :). I had problem after upgraded. The pop-up won't stop showing android.phone.com has stopped working and fixed it with factory reset. It worked flawlessly now
Android Marshmallow 6.0 Update is now available.
Just simply go to Settings then manually do the system update.
