I have been keeping track of this thread and i thought its my reponsibility to reply.
Firstly lenovo is a very big company and comparing the smartphones of lenovo and other companies like samsung, htc, micromax, the build quality is very good.
And secondly the price is way less than compared to other smartphone.
Coming to the phone. I bought lenovo k900 in august and i am a develope. The special about the phone is the processor. Any day intel is way above than ARM cortex. The display is 1080p. Ram is 2gb. The software is little complicated but its better than samsung.
I am not here to bitch about any company. Its just than as a consumer, i like spending money on whats worth. K900 is the second slimmest smartphone and logically its impossible to think that this phone packs big processor, 2500 mah battery in a metal shell. In the other hands samsung is just profiting bcoz of its good name. HtC is other company which produces good phones with good quality but the price is little high when compared to lenovo.
As lenovo has come out with smartphones, it has done a pretty good job. Battery is a concern for me as well. I use a power bank though. I am desperately waiting for the update of android 4.2.1 to 4.3 version.
I adore companies which gives value for money smartphones. Lenovo is one of them and the other would be micromax.
And i would like to thank lenovo for producing k900 as it fits my specifications.
The games play is good. The signal drop is because of the carrier. In india the carriers have to work on the signal strength. And i would recommend you to change you sim (not the number). Just the sim card because new simcards have wide band frequency and it helped me with the signal.
Guys for any other query you can contact me on this thread and i can surely recommend high end games for this phones and tips to save battery life.
my experience with K900 till today is excellent, but after reading the review by other unhappy users I think that there is some defective stock of handset that is in the market and which is causing trouble for those who are unlucky to bye it, also I am unable to understand that some users are saying that the mobile is not google certified and it dose not have google play app in it, but my handset was having google play out of the box so how is that possible, unable to understand such type of complains.
i have read many comments regarding the problem on the battery and camera of this phone.. is it true?
Lenovo K900 is a single SIM, with no micro SD card slot. From a total of 16 GB only 10 GB are usable by user. Batery will last for a day or two, depending how you use it. Playing games will drain the batery in 3 hours, surfing internet in about 5 hours. Have a great display, and the best audio I ever found on modern phones, loud and clear.
Body is a combination of non-magnetic stainless steel for back cover and polycarbonate for the rest of the body.
Only cons are:
- no micro SD card slot;
- only 16 GB version (10 GB for user);
- the device came with android JB 4.2.1 in box, and despite it has english language, most if not all of the applications are in chinese language.
- the device is not google certified and you cant have oficial google play store instaled unless you root the device;
- no international ROM version released to this date yet;
- my device came out of the box with a minor "bug" the bezzel near top of the touchscreen was not aligned to the screen perfectly, but that issue is almost indetectable if your not a perfection freak like me;
- I dont like the lenovo logo from the front of the device, I think is waaaay too big and ugly.
- earphones that came with the device are very cheap and low quality;
- no NFC, and no LTE;
- even rooted and with google play store instaled, some apps and games from store are not compatible with this x86 architechture CPU.
Despite the most of the cons I highly recomend this device, I love it and I just cant wait the day lenove will release an oficial internation ROM version for this device, and make it google play store certified.

mrinal, 26 Sep 2013Thnks MOUZ_india, did u face ne issues regarding calling, lag, etc in it n r u hapy wt it?? ... morefrankly speaking some times the call quality is very good, but some times it is not, according to me call quality also depends upon the quality of the phone you are connected with and also upon the network condition at the place you are making or receiving a call, so when I am at my house the call quality is excellent but in my work place it is not good, so I am myself confused that whether it is due to bad call quality of K900 of due to network conditions, and also reading the review about bad call quality of the phone by some users can play with your mind.

Lenovo has made a great attempt to design this handset upto world standards as flagship instrument, but still there are lots of issues with the final outcome.
There are quality issues, related to wifi, voice quality, battery back-up, no expansion slot.
Overall a good begining towards a great device, but it will take few iterations before it actually overcomes all these glitches.
Even handsfree function is not properly depicted on the device.
Best of luck to Lenovo for all future updates and new handsets.

I am using this phone since 2 weeks and must say it is a very good device and specially when I got it in just 23600 INR(new unused) as the device provide me user satisfaction of an 40000 INR device, for those people who are complening about the lags in it i must say yes it has that issue but it dose not matters if the device delivers what you want to do in it, also the games do lag in the begining but runs as smooth as water after a few while.
