Is there any desk top software (PC Suite) available for this phone?
1. brightness under sun light - not so great but acceptable
2. battery life - awesome. 24 hours is very doable with normal use.
Can some body tell me about the brightness of screen under sun light and battery life ( normal use feedback - watching video - browsing - heavy gaming )
of course rooting will allow you to do anything with your device that is written in linux code. but you can also go to google.com and type in the name of any aplication you want with no spaces and put .apk afterwords (exampleapp.apk) and you should be able to find it quickly. also some versions of the phone come with the playstore installed. some of these things depend on the source of the phone there are some websites out there that sell already rooted phones but it is hard to find without stumbling onto them as it is site and phone specific. hope that helps some of you.
It is a great phone, fast, big bright screen, big storage and RAM. First thing I've done is to purge every Chinese application, and rename some folders; this was minimally painful. However... Google Play doesn't work on it, and LenovoStore only displays in Chinese language (although I know there is no such thing as "Chinese language" ...), and there is no way around it. Some applications can be installed through LenovoStore, and they are in English, but on the long run it is not a great solution.

deepak, 08 Jul 2013where are you from ??Can this phone Lenovo A830 be used in Canada? thx
Does it come with Corning Gorilla Glass? With a 5" display, it might easily cracked if the screen is not protected.
Anyone know how to make google play to work on this phone? It's not listed on the supported phone list
