Liv, 14 Sep 2017@AZHAR75 After nougat update have you (or anyone else reading this) checked if CPU-Z still sh... moreI'm running latest S244 firmware.
Tested using CPU-X, all 8 cores running simultaneously at the lowest 652.8MHz even after idle for 5 minutes.
CPU Governor is "Interactive".
But if we pick up the phone and orientate to landscape, the CPU-X will give a glimpse of " idle" for all 8 cores. Furthermore, in CPU-X app, there is a pie chart for "CPU Status" which shows the "Deep Sleep" time and percentage since the device is switched on. Deep Sleep is 93% for the past 32 hours. Meaning, all 8 cores are actually at 0MHz for 93% of time since switched on.
Hence, don't look at the current core speed. Look at the Deep Sleep time / period.
recently am purchased Lenovo P2 @ flipcart, just one day 4g is working , data working only in wifi, jio4g is not working, am replace the sim 2times, but nos use, data is not conected, only for calls, very bad phone...
@AZHAR75 After nougat update have you (or anyone else reading this) checked if CPU-Z still shows all 8 cores running continuously?

I am not much gaming person, but may like VR, that's the one more reason I chose P2 over Mi Max2.

MI Max 2 is not direct competitor to P2. Redmi Note 4 is the one you should consider. Since you are looking at Xiaomi already, might as well go for MI A1 if you don't mind about the battery capacity.
MI A1 won my "Most Disruptive Phone of 2017" award....whereas P2 is the "Most Underrated Phone of 2017" award and also "Most Energy Efficient Phone of 2017" award....
Hi Friends, after doing lot of research I decided of buying P2 but only 3GB ram variant is available in flipkart. is it ok to buy it??? will there be any issues in future with lesser ram??? comparatively is Mi Max 2 better with 4GB/64GB???
Regarding the different bands for LTE/4G in India: it is better to refer to the Band numbers rather than the frequencies, because many bands operate on the same frequencies (eg, both band 38 and 7 operate on band 2600MHz, but a phone with only LTE band 38 will not interface with LTE band 7)
Based on the websites, the P2a42 LTE bands are:
1,3,5,7,8,20,28,38 and 40, and the P2c72 LTE bands are:
1,3,38,39,40 and 41
Airtel seems to only rely on LTE band 3 and band 40, which both P2a42 and P2c72 support. Airtel also uses UMTS band 1 and 8, again supported by both P2a42 and P2c72.
Reliance Jio relies on LTE bands 3, 5 and 40, and the P2a42 has all these, but the P2c72 does not support band 5. B3 and B40 will probably be enough 4G coverage for your needs anyway, and further to this, both P2a42 and P2c72 phones support UMTS B1 and B8, which are the UMTS bands used by Reliance Jio.
In summary, it doesn't really matter which one you buy in terms of the mobile network speed and coverage.
If someone does choose the Chinese variant, it makes life easier if the vendor has already flashed the phone with the P2a42 firmware (ROW).
I bought the 64GB Chinese version from ebay for AUS $ 325, and it came with the ROW firmware pre installed.

Thereafter, I was able to search by country for each model, and check the frequencies that each service provider operates on, and the frequencies supported by the phone model.
This might help some of you, so, sharing this information here:

It all depends on the telco. Some telco have plan / package that blocks tethering. Hence, check with your telco first to verify your plan / package supports tethering or not.
Redmi Note 4 also supports both tethering.

I have a question regarding this phone. Does the Lenovo P2 C72 variant with P2a42 global ROM support the mobile telephony frequencies used in India? I'm particularly interested in knowing if Airtel 4G and Reliance Jio SIM cards would work on this variant with the p2a42 global ROM installed.
From the research I'd done, I seem to find that Airtel is operating in GSM 850 band, and Jio is operating in TD-LTE 2300 MHz band. Airtel also seems to be operating inTD-LTE2300 MHz band. Both of these frequency bands don't seem to be supported by the handset.
I looked up the specifications of the frequency bands for Lenovo P2 on the aliexpress website, which seems to be selling the Lenovo P2 C72 variant with P2a42 global ROM.
Thanks in advance for your help.
