Vibration when call connect is not working. How to fix this? Pls tell someone
Can anyone please explain what's the benefit of having LTE Cat4(150/50 Mbps) on this phone?
Have anyone checked the device usage option under self-help in the Lenovo help app installed in this phone.
It says the max CPU Freq is 1.6 GHz.
Does'nt it suppose to be 2.5 GHz or something?
Also it says the chipset version is MT-6757WD instead of MT-6757. Can any one tell what's the difference?
Don't buy this phone. Major issues are
1. Once you will connect Bluetooth headset then for some minutes Bluetooth will work however after that you will experience distorted audio from it, which means that Bluetooth keeps disconnecting/connecting. All those k8 plus users who are listening music via Bluetooth headsets should keep their mobile data on and then should also pause their audio player and then play it again then you will come across this issue
2. Adaptive Brightness is not doing its job perfectly you will see delay in same. Forget about screen Flickr. I'm.talking about adaptive Brightness
I have updated September patch but there is no remedy given by Lenovo India
