I bought my second P2 today to replace my first one which was faulty. It has the same issue as the first one :(
When listening on headphones and the volume is low (like listening to chillout or classical, meditation etc.) there is electrical type interference sound. I have been experimenting and have isolated to problem to WiFi. If I turn WiFi off on the phone it stops altogether. Also, I think that the more data that's transferring, the more interference.
It is there whatever is playing - music, Netflix etc. Even when notifications play it can be heard. Obviously if the volume is turned up it is far less/not noticeable but it is always there.
I have managed to capture a recording of the issue:
This was at low volume as it illustrates the problem best but it's clearly heard in the recording.
I captured this audio by using a 3.5mm audio cable to output the audio from my Lenovo P2 to the AUX-in on a speaker system. I then placed another phone next the speaker to record the audio using an audio recorder app. The uniform static background hiss is produced by the app.
I LOVE everything else about this phone but as someone that uses my phone for music for many hours a day I cannot ignore these sounds.
I find it hard to believe that I can be unlucky enough to get two faulty P2's so there must be many more with this issue if not all and no-one else has noticed the issue yet.
I have tried 4 different sets of headphones and the issue is the same.

Is there any option or device through which 2 nano sim and 1 as card can be use in Lenovo P2 mobile.
My phone is working fine but my gmail is not syncing, just showing loading always. No other issues with anything else. All other apps sync perfectly but this problem i am facing. Please help. Thanks in advance. :)
Does it have corning gorila glass 3 protection ?
Gadgets.ndtv gives it a con for not providing scratch resistance.
I was reading the comments on facebook lenovo page and it seems lenovo is not providing timely updates for their mid range smartphones, many customers/users are frustrated with bugs and no updates . Sooner or later P2 will also be ambushed with bugs and no security update like others lenovo products, may be Nougat expected in Q2 for P2 not sure though . My P2 is gonna get deliver by this friday via flipkart, But now i am thinking of cancelling the product. If they don't want to give security updates and fix bugs then there is no point of buying lenovo P2 inspite of having good specs .
Dose it hv Stereo FM with RDS or Mono??? And what is the max wifi speed category a/b/g/n/ac or b/g/n????
I have problem with my p2. When I charged phone fully, Its going to close from sleep mode. It doesnt wake up with taping screen & short push to power button or menu button. I have to push power button very long to open again. It reboots after this but I can see app which are working before closed. I Tried factory reset, change some things in options but It closes again and again. Is this Hardware or software problem? I use sim1 slot and sandisk 64 gb card. Thanks
