I know this is a very powerful device, because I use the Razr i. You understand.
The heating is too high? How much grades?
Do you use the Lenovo UI? What's your opinion on it?
How about RAM usage?
You must have the International ROM, with Google apps.
Let me recommend you an screen dimmer app: Screen Dimmer by Haxor Industry. It's simply perfect for this job. It will help you take better control of screen brightness, and will let you have more battery life. UPnP
And to enjoy media in that big and beautiful screen: Bubble UPnP by BubbleSoft. The best, simply.
I'm debating between this and the Xperia Z Ultra. What would you say?
I wish Lenovo launched this sooner in many more countries and mine (Peru), they are delaying way too much. It's not even announced. -.-
I really wanted the K900, and hoped for an improved version with microSD card slot still as K900, but now they are working in the K910. The K900 design remains unbeaten, I don't know what the K910 will look like. :/
I am using a Lenovo K900 and truly admire the build quality and design. Below listed are few Pros & Cons I have observed
1.Commendable design and build quality
2.Good CPU performance (I have used other Android based phones powered by Snapdragon, Intel is definitely doing its job with immense dedication)
3.Admirable camera/picture quality
4.Good display (text is crisp and clear and colors are vibrant).
5.Creditable touch sensitivity
6.Battery life is better than many other phones with similar capability
7.Quality of voice calls
8. Value for money
1.Back panel gets heated up while working with heavy apps and games.
2.Availability of accessories
3.Devoid of dedicated camera button & Multimedia Card slot
4.Sound output (loudspeaker) is not great
Overall it is a good phone and the money paid is totally justified. It stands way ahead of Note 2.
Amit Kumar, 06 Aug 2013Hi,

Maybe they'll release a K900 with microSD card slot soon, they had one in the CES event, so it's a possibility. Lenovo might have plans for this feature, but it's a failure not having it there already.
Anyway, it's a very attractive device as it is, USB OTG can help. But, SD card is better, of course.
You know? There's a K910 in the works. It's reported to have Snapdragon 800 and microSD card slot, IF this will be the "upgraded version" we were waiting for,I hope Lenovo releases it on time. Stupid Lenovo has been too slow. I really wanted the K900 32gb version, but the no release dates are running my expectancy. So I started to wait for the Sony Xperia Ultra, will see how it all ends and what device I'll get in a couple of months, waiting time still, again, but now for the K910 and Xperia Z Ultra. I hope the new K910 has the same design as the K900 cause its design remain unbeaten!
This would have been the most desired and best phone in its category but it lacks in one place which pushes it back. THERE IS NO MEMORY CARD SLOT. Phones like this which allows you to take HD Video, 13 MPx Images, thousands of apps, personal files, songs, Movies and songs etc, which needs more memory and if memory is limited to 16GB only & where in user get only 10 or 12 GB (maybe less) space for them, it is really painful to invest money on this device. This device was so well designed with its features and performance but just due to lack of space I would prefer not to purchase. May be Lenovo will include the slot in coming model. So, do not go for this model if there is lot of space is required for you. But in any case you will need it because capturing HD videos and images with apps and songs will fill the memory very soon. Believe me.
Anonymous, 05 Aug 2013Yeah its true, im using k9.Can you be more specific? Can you give more data? Temperature? Situations?
I'd say if in some cases or easily, it goes beyond 45° C (113° F) it's an issue.
We should go to the K900 thread at XDA to hear and ask more about this.

It's a marvelous app. It can move heavy games data folders to the sd flawlessly. No more worries for lack of free space. I have 12.5 gb of games in my sd on my Razr i moved by this app working perfectly. You just need to have root access, find the app at XDA, the developer is so kind for this.
I read reviews of lenovo k900 at "http://www.thinkdigit.com/Mobiles-PDAs/Lenovo-IdeaPhone-K900_16420.html" ...in which the author says it has heating issues.
Has any user of this phone faced heating issues?
In that article he says "However, the IdeaPhone K900 heats up even under the slightest of load, and under gaming, can become uncomfortably warm to hold. Play Real Racing HD on it for 20 minutes, and you will know what we are talking about."
I wanna buy this phone...any help will be highly appreciated.
at the momment i using s890. it all fine accept one thing internal memory[hard disk ~ 4g] was partition to 2g ~ 2g. it useless even though i add 32g external memory because it alway run out of memory. Are K900 similar in this case ?

There's USB OTG to help too. But I do agree it should be more. They had a version with microSD card slot in the CES event, but haven't released yet, I don't know why. I hope they release it soon, maybe as an improved version. But as it is, I find it almost perfect. My Razr i backs it up, ha.
Have you tried another launcher? Nova, Go? Can you try and comment how it looks and work please?
How do you like the screen? How do you like the size? I think I like it because it's big and thin. I'd think the screen makes watching animes on mobile a gorgeous experience. What do you say? I already love it in my Razr i, ha.
Can you share your "About phone" screen in a snapshot? I'd like to see that information to know what system version and all you have. Please.
How about RAM? How much does it have free after a reboot once configured to your needs? To have an idea; my Razr i gets almost 400MB
of free RAM, multitasking is very good and only a couple of times it has had to close the minimized browser to keep switching apps I was using, even games like Modern Combat 3, Nova 3, NFS MW, etc resume fine if I have to minimize for a while. So, I'd expect to double this satisfaction with the K900. I like torturing my slaves, ha. What can you say about this? How good does the K900 performs?
How about battery life? I can get up to 9 hours of constant usage out of a charge in my Razr i using a screen dimmer for browsing, controlling the screen brightness and background processes is the key to longer battery life. And it can go a day perfectly with a charge, unless you spend the whole
our outside where you'll need to use higher screen brightness, but this is normal and controllable. Overall, pleased.
Gaming does affect battery life, only 5-6 hours. Ha :/
I'd like you to rely and tell us about these things, please. Also, some screen shots would be nice.
Btw, have you been frequenting the threads about the advice at XDA? Tell me your ID, maybe we can share some cool very useful apps.
Jeeva, 04 Aug 2013Whether this phone is a Google certified phone???? Can we install apps from Play store?? Your question has already been answered -.-
Official International ROM is Google certified, if you purchase this and the ROM is not the international one, you'll need to flash/update it. Apps work fine.

Tell you all where to get the international ROM is kind of difficult, because I can't remember the official site, but in Lenovo XDA forum thread they have published this. So it was easier to say anyone can get it there. The ROM works perfectly, the UI is a matter of taste, but there are launchers out there to pick if you don't like the stock UI.
I'd wish to say more, but your horrible and stupid way of typing is so annoying I barely read more of your reply. Need to remind you to type properly next time, this is not your SMS app.
Hi this is a great phone. It is the only phone that can play 10 bits video. I own this phone and very much happy with it. Here are the things which i don't like about this phone:
The UI looks very odd to be honest. I hope Lenovo fixes this and gives us stock Android version with slight modification. Lack of SD card is another major disappointment, Lenovo could have given at least 32 GB Internal memory. There's too much shake when recording video, hope Lenovo would use Xenon flash and optical image stabilization with good camera. Price is a little bit high.

Pls Pick one for me
K900, S4, S4 mini
I am looking for a phone with good screen quality, fast, good battery backup and camera.
It should be cost effective too,,,,
Whether this phone is a Google certified phone???? Can we install apps from Play store??
there are complaints of stucking without resolve it wont be sold out
Arvio, 03 Aug 2013S4 or K900 = ?Both are great. I'm waiting for the K900 to arrive to Peru, and in September I have my on-contract upgrade, so in a month I'll find myself wondering the same as you, but because of such attractive design of the K900 I'm pretty sure I'll wait for it. Besides that I'm having a very pleasant experience with my Razr i, very fast and reliable, so I want to use this K900 having a second generation Atom, nice screen and capable GPU. Over all I'd say I want the K900 over the S4 because it's something new, and already know of it's power. Though the S4 and its unique features are attractive too, but they are a bit just for a while of fun.
I hope the K900 arrives soon, though, if not the S4 or the HTC one are the best options, among others, in my country, and I'll have to choose.

Lenovo is delaying their expansion because is building/contacting support centers, but the device does have guarantee.
