Grensvegter, 19 May 2020I've had my P2 since September 2017 and gone through 3 sets of earphones and chargers, but my ... moreTrue. Mine is OK still march 2017. The battry is still OK for more a full day. The only problem I have with this phone, is that sometimes when it have physical constraints in my pocket (somehow a little twisted), si SIM card is disconnected and I have to reboot the phone. But maybe it's a SIM card problem.
I appreciate a lot LTE B28 connectivity.

I've had my P2 since September 2017 and gone through 3 sets of earphones and chargers, but my P2 is still exactly as the day I bought it! This phone is probably the best value for money product on the market. The only criticism I have is that accessories like phone covers and protective classes are very hard to come by. The phone itself is a legend!!!
Had my Lenovo P2 for two years now and it has been the best phone I have used so far.
Battery life is incredible, I watch hours of YouTube on it and it never goes below 60%!
That includes several calls and some web browsing. Always laugh with my friends Iphones that, by mid afternoon run out of power and cost 3 times what I paid for this.
Highly recommended for anyone who wants to have a reliable phone and forget daily charging.

I purchased Sony Charger. It is super excellent and compatible with Lenovo P2 and supports fast charging.
I've been using my lenovo p2 since December 2017 and it's working great. I now need new charging cable since it's almost broken at the end where it's connected to the port which can connect to the phone. Also it's impossible for me to get the exact same cable from China since it's out of stock. So I need alternatives. Either a 3rd party charger / power bank which is capable the fast charging the lenovo p2. So if any of you know please kindly tell me.
Battery life is indeed great. I am using P2 it with LineageOS now, heh. But since this covid thing started my usage is not rather typical, so I can't really tell yet what is average SOT. Time frame between charges with Lineage OS 16 on P2 is 4 days for me (I do switch off phone during night).
It's hard to believe that this 2016 Lenovo smartphone with a mid-range Snapdragon chipset scored the second longest endurance rating behind the 2020 Realme 6i. Imagine using a deGoogled custom Android ROM like LineageOS or Havoc-OS, the battery life must be insane!
After almost 4 years of ownership my P2 is working perfectly, same as battery life and after all the ground drops it still holds on very good, very solid phone, nice screen and very very good battery
P2 is amazing. I was crazy enough to get NEW p2 to replace my old one (3 years old), since it had some hardware issues with screen and also battery life was decreasing. New one runs Android 9 (Lineage OS 16). Testing it now. First impressions very good. SOT on first charge 16h 39min. Currently I'm on second charge - 38% battery left and SOT is 10h 16min. Will let you know later how it goes and my full impressions.
Prafulla, 13 Mar 2020Worst phone. Lcd screen, touch pad very costly. No Gorrilla glass as per specified.There is gorilla glass, it's an OLED not an LCD? And what touch pad?
Worst phone. Lcd screen, touch pad very costly. No Gorrilla glass as per specified.
Guys, If you use your Lenovo P2 with Monese and/or Curve apps, can you please tell do you have push notification sound from those apps (when making transactions for example)? I have this weird issue, that there is no sound for push notifications from those apps and also LED does not light up when they come. Please also wrote what android version do you use (6.x or 7.x) and what model do you have P2a42 or P2c72 ? I am still on 6.0.1, becouse not sure if updating to 7.x will do any good to overall performance. But if that fixes push notification sound/led issue for those apps, I might consider to do so.
Currently I am on 219th charge for my P2 and battery life starts to get worse. Now its starting steadily decrease to 3 days (from 100% to ~15% discharge). I can still pull 4 days but then it will decrease from 100% to 0). That is with switching phone off during night.
So yeah... options are:
1) Do nothing and wait till battery gets completely worse.
2) Order new battery from China and hope its original and change it somewhere in repair center and hope phone screen not gets damaged in process.
3) Order new P2 (yes its still possible, but overall price will be same or more than 3 years ago). Sadly Lenovo dont care about updates, so you can get only android 7 officially.
4) Get other new phone (I am looking but still not found anything I would completely like).
I mean P2 is unique in many ways:
1. Battery is epic
2. No camera bump at all !!!!!!
3. Physical switch for power saving mode
4. Physical button/fingerprint reader which acts as back button with single press or takes you to home screen when pressed.
5. Not power hungry CPU.
6. Just "right" size of screen (phone not too big overall)
7. Does have NFC
8. Great working GPS.
9. Durable screen (mine fell at least few times, so far so good).
It is good durable phone. I am using it from last 3years. It's battery timing is exceptional. Due to this I am loving it. It body and screen it very strong. It drops from my hands several times, but luckily nothing happens.
Its processors power is very good for day to day usage.
One down side on the bottom left corner may be there is bump in the seen due to this glass protector does attach very well. But it doesn't feel odd. Or that bump or ditch I can't feel from eyes or ever hands.
But overall it a great phone. Battery, design, performance and durability.
btw, I found 1 shop in neighbor country (~600km away), where they still sell new P2. I have temptation to buy it. Unfortunately that shop does not deliver outside their own country and it seems they accept only some local payment methods (also not available outside their own country). Price is about 330eur.

To answer question how did I tracked number of charges per year - sorry to dissapoint, but I used old-school "analogue" method - just printed calendar on A4 paper and marked with pen those days when I charged my phone. Then after year passed I counted them manually. I am doing this becouse I want to know how long in reality phone with 5000mAh+ power can last, since manufacturers started to use non-removable batteries.
