Abhipore, 26 Oct 2017HI. I bought this model (3gb/32gb) from flipkart in august. i was so excited about this phone.... moreHey, so you say that the bugs pretty much involved the stock firmware?
But I have this concern now... You said you bought it from Flipkart. Is your unit a real P2a42 by model? Because seeing how half the users report bugs and half don't, I started to think that perhaps just those who ordered the Chinese P2c72 flashed with P2a42 firmware were having bugs.
Either way, I can't find any viable option to order a P2a42 to my country, but I saw it's not too expensive (still more than the Chinese version) on Flipkart and thought about trying to forward it from India somehow. But I want to know it's the real deal and not just another Chinese version with the ROM switched.
1 possible problem with custom ROMS and rooting is that you cannot use banking apps.

I bought this model (3gb/32gb) from flipkart in august. i was so excited about this phone. But disappointed after using it for few days because there are many flaws in nougat firmware.
As you mentioned there is a lagging and stuttering is present at current rom. So i decided to unlock its bootloader and use custom roms. But the biggest pain is that you have to wait for 14 days to unlocking the bootloader for this particlular device and require lenovo id. Once it unlocked then relocking is not possible. But then using custom recovery such as TWRP u can flash custom roms and do many things with your device. I flashed dolby atmos. There are many custom roms are available on XDA for this device and recently android 8.0 oreo(Alpha stage) rom also available. But after using custom rom i can say that many of the bugs are gone.
Purchased Lenovo P2 recently, updated it to Android 7 immediately and it works perfectly. Absolutely great phone! Excellent display (AMOLED rocks), not too heavy if you take into account that the battery inside this thing is huuuuge. Double tap to wake - I loved this on Nokia N7 and Lumia 700 and still love it with P2 (although I use fingerprint reader more and more). Fingerprint reader with gestures - didn't even know how useful this can be until I started using it!!! When you use the fingerprint reader gestures (tap to go back, double tap for task list), Android command bar is hidden which gives even more space on the screen). I've started using Android after long time so I cannot comment on Android version that comes with the phone but it does not seems bloated to me - it looks clean and it is fast. And I think that Lenovo P2 is better purchase than Huawei P10 Lite.
LLL, 25 Oct 2017From what I can remember, Sony IMX258 sensor.Thanks. If that's the model on all batches then it's pretty good, as I considered buying the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 a couple of days ago but then read they've been sneaky and replaced the Sony IMX258 module on all newer batches with a worse Samsung or Omnivision module, so all reviewers which said the camera is good for the price (not amazing, obviously) were reviewing a camera different to what's available now.
But I have a different issue with the P2 now... I read that all versions with 64gb/4gb are actually the Chinese P2c72, and that if it's sold as "global" the seller just switched the ROM. The Chinese one supports less bandwidth and some people said they couldn't update to newer global firmwares.
Is that true? It's pretty annoying. I would even get the 32gb/4gb version if it were a true global, but all I found is a couple of people selling it on eBay for 150%, sometimes over 200% the price of the 64gb version. What the hell.
LLL, 25 Oct 2017Why don't you guys flood the Lenovo official forum? Let your voice be heard. You've got nothin... moreAbsolutely correct!!!! You can also take a look at several videos on YT literally REQUESTING Lenovo for updates, support stuff for its devices, etc...
Anonymous, 25 Oct 2017Friend's plz suggest me Lenovo p2 good or Huawei p10 lite.thanksFor me, Lenovo P2 for sure.
man, 25 Oct 2017very correct. they are not supporting itWhy don't you guys flood the Lenovo official forum? Let your voice be heard. You've got nothing to lose trying.
Hey, I considered buying this phone a couple of months ago, but reading about the several (possibly software) bugs made me uncertain about a purchase.
I keep reading some people saying "this is fixed" and some saying "now I have this bug". So here are a couple of points to consider:
Do you still have out-of-sync audio in YouTube with your P2?
Some said that after the Android 7 update, their speaker started sounding distorted. Is it still so for everyone?
I also read complaints about video playback starting to stutter and battery draining too quickly due to some unknown background processes. Are people still having this on their P2?
And then perhaps, if all of these problems are possibly software-related, is any of you running a custom ROM and not experiencing any of these bugs, thus confining them only to the stock firmware?
Thanks in advance!
And one last thing... Any information on what camera module is used in the P2?
Milton, 22 Oct 2017Which version is good Indian or Chinese ?
Is there any major difference of the two countries ... moreDepends on your needs. I bought the P2c72 64GB / 4G RAM version because of the memory.
I have had this phone for 2 months now, with no problems at all.
I use this phone very frequently on 4G+ and GPS all the time, and I still find I only need to charge it every 2nd night.
I turn on the battery saver switch just before I sleep. it allows calls and my alarm clock to come through, but preserves the battery consumption while I am asleep.
The seller on EBAY pre-loaded the P2c72 with P2a42-ROW firmware (non-China), and the auto-updates ensured the device is running and synchronised with Google and Google maps etc
Regarding the Chinese varsion - in Australia the LTE bands this phone is missing include bands 28 and 7 (Optus & Telstra use these bands), and band 5 (Vodaphone). I am using Optus, but despite not having access to bands 28 and 7, I have still found that 99% of the time I am connected to 4G+ with most or all bars of signal strength. I also get very high 4G+ speeds in both city and rural areas of Melbourne Australia (>55 mb/s 4G download speed while inside a dense apartment block). That is because the Chinese variant supports some of the important 4G bands for use in Australia, including bands 40, 3, and 1. I can not comment for other countries, but it is possible to work out for yourself whether the P2c72 or the P2a42 variant will suit your needs based on which LTE bands your network provider uses.
So far I have had no hanging, no lagging between tasks or during programs, no overheating or warmth, no problems to speak of so far.
I have dropped the phone (with no cover or screen protector) maybe 30 times now, partly because it is so slippery. I balance the phone on the arm of the sofa, and you can watch the phone slowly sliding until it falls off! Although it has some slight marks around the edges and corners, the screen has no scratch or chips, and the phone is in good working order (surprisingly). A very good phone all round, and exactly what I was looking for.
Ahmed Hafez Amin, 25 Oct 2017I love this mobile and crazy about it because lot of reasons 1- battery 5100 2- fast chargi... moreI think you'll easily get 1 day battery life....after lot of using like social media,,,gaming,,,youtube and even others thing......
hi, 23 Oct 2017This device is the best in market but sadly lenovo don't know thatvery correct. they are not supporting it
Also important thing that GPS in this phone is great. But unfortunately no Galileo GPS support (but Lenovo could add it via patch/update if they wanted, becouse hardware supports it).
I love this mobile and crazy about it because lot of reasons
1- battery 5100
2- fast charging 24 wat
3- super Amoled Screen
4- fingerprint front rear which easy to use
5- 2 SIM cards which help me and make me don't need to another mobile
6- very fast because the snapdragon octa core 2.0
7- very nice in all games
8- memory 4 GB RAM not in all mobiles in mid range cost
9- 32 GB internal memory is the minimum requirement now and also u can use memory card
10 - reverse charge so u can use as power bank for another mobile
but unfortunately there is no good support and no spare parts no good insurance in lenovo
Thanks Lenovo P2 :)
