I wanna share 3 fix for A806.
1. Names not coming up for calls or sms
Go to Concatcs > Tap on menu > More features and settings > More display options > Matching digit numbers > 7
Set that and names will match for both calls and sms.
2. Chinese character under contacts for calls and sms
Go to Concatcs > Tap on menu > More features and settings > More display options > Location > Untick/untap those 2 options
No more Chinese character kohkoh
3. Ussd is cut half (cannot see full)
Download this file and flash it using twrp or cwm.
lenovo novice, 26 Oct 2014Hi, what happens if you "reset to factory settings"?
I know I will lose all my data... moreI don't know, but normally it will revert back to your latest OS(vibe ui in this case).
Anyone who want to root your phone here is English TWRP recovery mode http://www.needrom.com/download/recovery-twrp-mds-2-8-0-0-lenovo-a806/. Make sure you know what you are doing or your phone might brick, good luck
Trick: to install the MTK driver & flash the recovery you need to do it without battery.

For those who are heavy users, temperature for this phone can go up to 42°C when playing games (tested with Asphalt 7). Really smooth, no lagging at all. The camera quality is okay. My Antutu score for this phone is about 3200+ points, quite good since it has octacore CPU and 2GB memory. If you want to root this phone please know what you're doing since the recovery mode is quite confusing because of bad English translation.
New model for this year. Nice spec. Affordable price. Camera in good quality 13/5 MP. But quite thick.

I update my phone to lenovo vibe ui 2.0 and need to root and install google apps back myself. I think because the update only meant for china region and not international.

It's really dissappointed this model don't have compass sensor since i like using apps google skymap, Star chart and Stellarium. Now i prefer buying Xiaomi Redmi Note which have a similar specs but also a compass sensor, light, proximity, accelerometer and gyroscope.
Have just got a set, worried about the weight, physically weight it, it is 151g, not bad, quite speedy, bought it at $300 with 1 year local warranty. consider cheap for that price

Great Phone for little money:
+ A+++ performance,
+ excellent display,
+ 2GB Memory, 32GB SD,
+ actual Android Version,
- Little Battery (
Someone who's already bought this phone please verified whether it has compass or not. Some other website states it has compass, Light sensor, gyro and G-sensor.
