But my phone is not able to recognise media file from memory card. if i want to listen something i have to play via file manager. players are unable to retrive media file automatically. even i have, vlc, mx, google and latest released lenovo music player. so what u can for this functionality. phone is ok good?
Well it's been about a month now that I had bought Lenovo K3 note from the first flash sale, and I decided to post my opinion about this phone. I wish to start with the Pros:
1. Display- The first thing that surprised me is the fact that we could get a phone with such an amazing display at this cost. The display is truly amazing, it was wonderful watching HD movies on this.
2.Audio: The quality is amazing especially when Dolby Atmos is turned on, it mainly enhances the experiance while watching HD movies and also listening to Musiq.
3.Camera: I would say that at this price, the camera is good, I wouldn't say awesome, but quite good, especially photos taken with 4:3 are really good. Even the video capture is good, it's amazing about how even the faintest background sounds are captured effectively while taking videos.
4.Build quality: At this price I would say it's good and looks decent.
1: I even wonder whether there is a quality test done by Lenovo on it's phones before releasing it in the market, here is why I feel this way. The first piece that I got was severely heating up at the top portion near the reciever, the battery was alarmingly draining, asked for a replacement, flipkart sent another one the very next day, everything seemed to be fine but the only issue was that when I inserted the 3.5 mm jack to listen to music, the output from the speakers which should automatically stop, did not. Flipkart this time arranged a tech person to call me, after the troubleshooting steps, he said that it was a hardware problem, Flipkart sent another phone the next day. Seemed OK but was slightly heating up while playing games or while on call for a long time, battery was better this time, the only mistake that I did was to update the 295mb update, problems started, even though I did everything possible to free much of the RAM, battery started to drain fast and heating issues while playing games.
Steps That I took to free the RAM:
Uninstalled and disabled most of the unwanted apps.
Tried closing all open applications by clicking on the left lower button and clicked on the brush symbol, it seemed to free some amount of ram but not that very effectiveInstalled Clean Master, seemed to work ok but it itself was consuming much memory the fact which I noticed only after installing 360 Security, which has an option to completely shut down any background apps and also to stop them from automatically activating. Managed to free max 1189mb. Tried Asphalt 8 on medium settings after this, within a min or two into gaming noticed frame drops and lag issues, the device was heating up at the top, tried dead trigger 2, I should confess this visually attractive game was a real stunner on this phone than any other that I had played before on, at the beginning it was smooth, but started lagging, and heating issues again.
I don't think that this is an hardware issue, I have played a 1080P MKV HD Movie, the device rendered it especially well, I got 26890 on antutu, which is amazing, only a device with high quality hardware can manage this. I think the whole issue is about RAM management, and the 295mb update has made it worse. I own a Lenovo Vibe X2 for the last 18 months, and really shocked about how Lenovo came up with this product. Anyone who has owned Vibe x2 and K3 note can very easily see the massive difference.
Well maybe i'm wrong but I don't see the point of having a 64 Bit 1.7 Gh Octocore and an equally powerful Mali GPU, when the main problem is RAM management. No matter how many apps you uninstall or how many apps you stop, one cannot get the constant consistent free Ram even upto around 800mb.
Mediatek is supposed to be much better than the power hungry snapdragon or qualcomm, but I don't understand why such issues with this phone.
My friends Father works for the consumer court, through him without spending anything, I managed to get a refund. After practically checking all other options, decided to go for Microsoft Lumia 640 XL,ofcourse ready to compromise on high end display, why 1 GB ram, you may ask, well 1GB on windows phone does the same any 3GB would do on Android and I have seen and experianced it, well didn't want to encourage or discourage any one, just sharing my personal experiance about this device which I feel would be a real good one, if lenovo properly tests and gives another update along with an upgrade to Lollypop 5.1, which I definitely think would fix much of the heating and quick battery drain issues. I opted out because I don't have much patience to wait for these guys to give a proper future update, nor am I in the mood to spend most of the time on my phone, just clearing RAM, so decided to bid goodbye to Android and excited to goto windows.
Sombhai, 09 Aug 2015It's really surprising only bad comments coming, it means maximum people suffered after buying... moreIn a country of billions of people two lakh means nothing. Some people have very tight budget and when they get some opportunity to have maximum out of it then they try to grab it and the same is happing here. I here simply suggesting people to check/use their special expectations from this note in physical before buying. Don't mellow in high antutu benchmark.
AnonD-427498, 09 Aug 2015Yes it is off. i assume u r using 64 bit version. and benchmark after full charge.
answer, 09 Aug 2015Lenovo k3 note is better, just search for the specs of the two phones and you'll find k3 note ... moreDon't just go on specs. They are misleading. If you can't take risk with your money then please check the phone in physical from anyone. Then only you will be able to know the right performance. Full HD doesn't mean Anything unless the devise perform normal tasks.k3 note's camera, gaming and build quality is poor.the only good quality in this is light weight with full HD and nothing else.
AnonD-420140, 09 Aug 2015make sure your screen and GPU power saver in power manager is off during benchmarking. Yes it is off.
AnonD-423318, 09 Aug 2015camera quality is good. don't tell me you r comparing it with iPhone.Just compare the pics taken by 8mp camera of infocus M2 and then decide bro. Your eyes will pop out to see the bad quality of kabada camera note.
AnonD-427498, 09 Aug 2015Why some times my k3 note misbehaves? Like some features don't work, can't type texts properly... moremake sure your screen and GPU power saver in power manager is off during benchmarking.
rock, 09 Aug 2015lenovok3 note vs grand2 which is best in comparison....????reply fast....Grand 2 is inferior in every single area, go with the K3 without any reservations!
Why some times my k3 note misbehaves? Like some features don't work, can't type texts properly, and antu tu benchmark showing just only 26000 .... And in gaming FIFA 15 working slowly not getting the original gaming speed like other smartphones.. What's the cause? Please help meeee....
I was really surprised to see that K3 note can run Nba 2k 2015,this game is very close with ps3 graphics, with a little lag here and there and try this on any snapdragon 410 and you will get black screen issue and dont know why mc5 lag.
AnonD-427378, 09 Aug 2015I am sad to see that my little brother's yu yuphoria can run Asphalt 8 in high graphics fluent... moreTry nsf most wanted on both k3 and yuphoria,and see huge diference in graphics you will be blown away of the graphichs in k3 and also nba 2k 2015 it will not not even open on any snapdragon 410.
It's really surprising only bad comments coming, it means maximum people suffered after buying k note 2. At least 2 lacks pieces sold as per news papers reports.
I mean to say least people satisfied with this product. It's not possible someone's trying to misguide everybody who purchased or wants to purchase.
I have used Lenova k 2 more than 3 weeks & experienced following.
1) Charging time 2-40 to 2-50 mts.
No heating at that time just warms 2
Two to three c more.
2) Same 2 to 3 c extra warmness on continued talk more than 50- 60 minutes.
Also 3 to 4 c extra on viewing videos, on YouTube on networking.
3) Battery last 61/2 hours on screen. Today I personally experienced 100% Charging to 10% after 6h 13mts on screen.
3) Camera / Music / games (race 3) & all other functions at the best.
BATTERY NEVER HEATED ABOVE 40 C.
I am living in Mumbai normal temperature
33 to 35 c. All experience on that basis.
All above due to advice received, from this column how to use battery & overcome heating problem.
Please don't misunderstand my self as company's representative I have given my true experience.
