I bought this phone 3 months back from Shopclues.com. (DO NOT buy it from shopclues.com and their vendor MobileStore of Hyderabad, -terrible, terrible and terrible experience).
Currently the phone is DOA(dead/bricked by itself). Lenevo and HCL approved the replacement by issuing DOA letter same day of reporting the issue. But the vendor I purchased from is taking more than 6 weeks to replace the phone because of their terrible-soon-will-close-down and dear-customer-I-dont-give-a-f kind of attitude and operational lethargy.
Initially phone felt large in my hand and bit difficult to fit in my jeans pocket. Especially uncomfortable due to its formal-suit kind of sharp-edges design pocking in my body. Riding my motorcycle with this phone was close to impossible.
The phone heats with more than 2/3 minutes of normal operations. I am NOT talking about games, but usual stuff. Sometime its just heats up for no good reason, when its stationary. And its no lite heat or something, fairly warm.
The phone has fantastic performance. No doubt.
Battery is just not enough to last a day with normal usage on 3G. With 2g/Edge, it almost manages to the bedtime.
I took this phone to month long vacation to Malaysia and Thailand as my camera, GPS device and 3g Internet device. The batteries wouldnt last more than 4 hours.
Camera is nice in daylight. Low light pictures, it does not replaces my 8MP Canon point-and-shoot. So, if you want great photos of your vacation in day time, this is not the one. Night time? Neh.
The phone has everything you need, if it works. You will have to carry a power-bank with you all the time, as the battery is not predictable. Camera is fairly good for a cellphone's camera.
Somehow this phone does not give me a feeling of good hardware because... well it's dead. SO, I am trying to get refund instead of replacement. But I would be ok getting even replacement as I dont have what it takes to fight with I-will-kill-you-indian-ecommerce companies like shopclues... and yeah the phone is not bad.

Riefanto, 19 Nov 2013Anyone know is this phone can install bbm for android?yes u can download bbm in this phone
Don't buy this phone or any other Lenovo phone. Idiots think their responsibility is only to make and sell. Lenovo hasn't heard of a tiny little thing called updates. Still stuck with 4.2.1 and get this - idiots haven't released a source code -> so no custom roms for this device. Bought this phone instead of Note II for Intel's Clover trail+ processor. Never regretted buying a phone more. Some 'excellent' features of the phone:
1. Frequent call drops.
2. Poor sound quality - speakers are shitty. Can't put the phone in speaker mode during calls - won't be able to hear anything.
3. The custom Lenovo ROM is shitty - just google the reviews about the phone's software.
4. Removing the pen drive causes the internal SD card also to be removed. Needs a restart everytime.

My ZL (stock 4.2.2) heats some too, and rather quickly while playing games. Looks like the update to 4.2 from 4.1 reduced this heating a bit. n.n
Batery life is on the "normal" side: 9 hours on constant usage, display 10% brightness and 4.7 hours on. I plan to get a portable 10000 mAh (the bigger the better)charger anyway.
So, looks like there's no major problem with this device.
I'm thinking about getting the K900 again, since I've heard it'll finally be released in my country, Peru.
Just would like to know if there's an oficial word from Lenovo about update to 4.4... They really, REALLY, NEED to update this device if they want to stay alive in this industry.
Pd: If you (anyone) understand benchmarks, here there's one of the most important ones, for the K900. This gives an score to the GPU (it's a gaming benckmark) and can tell how much future it has.
6900 for the K900 is very good. Anything above 4500 or 5000 is the minimum for 1080p, I'd say.
Btw, the ZL scores a better (9700), all games I tried (NFS, Asphalt 8, etc) run with no problems. But they all could run better in all devices if Gameloft would do its job and polished the games... Mediocre Gameloft...

In this high definition age, 16gb fills up lightning fast. Memory card also adds versatility while copying files from phone to phone or pc to phone.
