ToonToon, 29 Jan 2017Yes. fingers crossed.Was that "fingers crossed" suppose to encourage that my decision is right or to out me in a more dillusional condition.. ;)
@Bryan: I totally understand what your problem was. If you still want to use third party program to turn off screen, use exactly this program (Screen off via short timeout), you can find it in google play store, its not free, but as its works 100% with P2, its well deserves its money!!! (I use 10,1 seconds timeout in settings there with P2). Just try it, works 100%. All other programms I tried, failed miserably (or lets say just worked with those problems as you described).

Well I have removed finger prints and register allmost 5 times....still same...my fingerprints are detected then it prompts me to either pin or pattern based on what I select during restart options.

I noticed today if I leave an app open and lock screen..the finger print unlocks normally..
Some s/w glitch for sure...coz this is not normal..
So guys I have finally ordered P2 for myself.. I was really torn between Honor 6X and P2 but SD625 and 5100 mah battery plus the awesome audio quality tipped me in favour of the P2. Camera is not my main focus. So guys can u tell me have I made the right decision..?
Regarding SAR values, I dig a little deeper and found that there is 2 methods how to measure SAR.
And real ratings for P2 are following:
0.297W/kg @ 1g (HEAD)
0.896W/kg @ 1g (BODY)
^ This method is mainly used in USA
Legal 1g SAR limit is 1.6W/kg.
0.818W/kg @ 10g (Head)
1.65W/kg @ 10g (Body)
^ This method mainly used in Europe
Legal 10g SAR limit is 2.0W/kg.

Check the brightness ... moreWell, first of all... the quality of an amoled panel is not being measured by its maximum brightness. Second, if you set your P2 to auto mode and set the brightness bar to max it will output a lot above 500 which is enough for direct sunlight during a summer day. when it comes to color accuracy the P2 easily beats/match the 6P. source:working in the screen panel industry for 17+ yrs

GaganAhuja, 29 Jan 2017I think I should go for replacement...screen is less brighter than amoled display of huawei 6p...It is not a problem. Huawei 6P has better amoled display than Lenovo P2. Check the brightness test in gsmarena's review. It's only 346 nits. Just okay.

Clean your fingers and scanner. Use pattern lock instead of pin to save fingerprint. After every restart your phone, pattern lock also required with scanner.
