I am using Lenovo K3 Note music edition in India. Bought a week back as a replacement to my broken Sony Xperia Z1 compact as I am waiting for the launch of Sony X series in India. Though on paper the phone has all the features of an expensive phone but after using the same, realized the shortcomings of the phone and I guess Lenovo brand of Smartphones. Below are my experiences:
1. Though has 3000 mh battery, does not last even for the full day. Needs constant charging. Charging is very slow. Doesn't charge on car charger.
2. Hangs although has 2 GB RAM and has the tendency to heat up.
3. The biggest drawback is the SAR value. THE SAR IN LENOVO SMARTPHONES ARE VERY HIGH THOUGH THEY CLAIM THEY ADHERE TO INDIAN STANDARDS. THEY HAVE SAR (radiation) OF approx. 1.54 as compared to established brands like Sony, Samsung etc. which have SAR of less than 0.5.
This results in headaches, pain in the ears after longer use. I guess thats the reason why they are cheap. Couple of years back I had Lenovo P700 which I had to dispose off in a week of purchase, as it had high SAR. Both me and my wife complained of headaches while using the same.
4. Touch works haphazardly, if use for longer period of time.
I have decided never to use Lenovo Phone until they come clean on SAR values on their smartphones.
If any one has similar experiences using Lenovo phone, please share.

I have been using lenovo k3 note past 2 months. So far its working okay. Only problem is, its showing very less free ram (around 500 mb) because of which its hanging a lot, have to do power off and on to work. Touch is not smooth at all.
I believe there is no solution to it what i got to know from various Lenovo users. Now planning to change the set.
features r good..but my fone touch screen hangs alot..i have been to centre twice..they have changed the screen..still facing same issue..wat to do?
