A880. A cheap smartphone money can buy. Lack of video call via 3g. Default rom svcks. But once rooted, you can do whatever you want, with care. Some carrier in some country were unable to set carrier setting automatically where you have to do it manually in sim setting. Both front and rear camera are moderately good according to its price. Overall, I give it 8 stars out of 10.
This is my best phone !! There is a lot of rom created by Malaysia dev that you can try ..
Just 1 word "DAMN".
The best phone I've ever used.Not sure why, but i bought a secondhand one in Malaysia(RM400/$110) and its suprising passed far by my expectation. I use this for gaming, name it, Asphalt 8, Gangstar Vegas, MC 4, Injustice, NFSMW, nova 3, Dead Trigger 1&2 works flawlessly. I even rooted this phone and use GLTools to push the graphic& adding A-A(MC3&4).Trust me, I never feels any heat produce no matter how intense I use(not using any cover). I can play Asphalt 8 around 5-6 Hours on high grphic without losing any performance (Thanks to 2500MaH battery). This little beast can stand to 3 days with moderate use.
I use thetering a lot for my laptop and battery drains so fast and getting too hot. 3 hours and its dead especially when on heavy usage (ofcourselol,downloading 3GB PC games at 700kbps-1.2mb in 2-3 Hours).
I'm a proud owner of Lenovo a880. I'm really lucky to own this phone while my friend having crazy battery drain, hot like hell, sluggish gaming performance, random freeze while using high price smartphone like Samsung.

would you mind to let me know the step by step guide on how to flash the ROM you mention for this phone. I'm using lenovo A880 model as well.
Do I need to back up my data prior flashing the ROM?
Hope you can assist me on this, thanks.
Been using this Lenovo a880 for 12 month, I am using two unit concurrently, one for serious business purpose other one for backup, both phone are amazing durable, I drops each few time but it keeps working without trouble.
Both phone had flash to custom roms, (MIUI, lewa, tron v3, cmw, L style, many others... ), this phone is one of the easiest to flash and root, having 4 unit battery for standby,
With it 1.3ghz processor and 1gb ram it is good enough for daily usage, I pair it with a 64gb SD card.
When it first bought, there are few issues with the original ROM, including screen on itself while nobody touching it, it drained battery! Too many unwanted Chinese apps which can't be uninstall! Speaker sound too soft difficult to hear including headset, mic and loud speaker, Solved all problems all together by flashed to custom ROM, currently using MIUI ROM, MIUI ROM v5 is the best out of many which have small issues here and there! My advice to all people who trying to buy this phone, if you are good in flashing ROM, go for it, tq.
Unreliable - Lenovo made a reputation with this. No more Lenovos for me.
I have this model and using it for more than 6 months. The problem is I cannot install latest version of Wechat app. After installed, when I opened chatting space from my wechat contact, the app keep restarts. Any opinion from you?
