In fact I mean to say that readers should help provide us with balanced observations - the good aspects as well as the bad, areas it scores high and where it scores low. In this way people can make up their minds as to whether to go for it or not. So far I've been encouraged by certain aspects of the phone such as the battery life, the display and its smoothness, in addition to the aesthetic value. Hoping that more of such aspects will be brought to the fore by readers. Thanks

If not why people are preferring one manufacturer ui over another. Why saying some ui is bloated. Sorry if sounds noobish, i have been there in Windows land.

It is normal because some oems include apple also getting a few problems after new model coming with new hardware. They will release patch updates to fix the problems. I always recommend my friend after buy new phone, check for update frequently if they don't to get trouble with the phone
AnonD-633306, 23 Jan 2017this phone or xiaomi Mi5 You want battery life, go for lenovo p2. You want sleek design go for mi5.both running smooth and fast for normal user. You can't see much different in terms of daily usage.If you play heavy graphic games better take mi5 because the gpu is much better than p2. Most games play without any problems with sd625 because i have tested with redmi 4 prime/pro sd625 same as p2. Running heavy games such as n.o.v.a 3, asphalt 8, modern combat 5, dungeon hunter 5 without much heat or lags

It checks almost all the tick boxes for me except:
- Wi-Fi (it should have at least came with 5 GHz radio)
- Android updates (more likely it won't receive the next Android at all)
If I break my phone right now, I'd buy this in a heartbeat as it got the major specs right. I will have to wait for this year's One Plus's specs and price versus this one.

It's a lot more different to not think about charging your phone every day,even twice. With this phone you can use it all day long. You just can't drain the battery in one day.

Hence, ... moreIntel's atom cherry trail series is 14nm and they heat up and throttle like crazy.They shouldn't but they do.The sd625 should be more battery friendly but in terms of performance is just avarage.

Recommend some good tempered glass and case for lenovo p2 Indian version...

Granted there's no way a mid-range phone will come with every single thing one may demand in a phone. But one wonders why all these flaws associated with the P2 in 2017! Users should please highlight more of such observations to guide those who have yet to make up their minds whether or not to go for it. Honestly I think a phone's appearance should match it's performance, or at least get close to it. I am one of those patiently waiting in the wings regarding its procurement. Readers should please help. Thank you.

What I did, I installed Nova launcher and choosed black theme there, so app drawer is black. But settings is not black.
Imo, Android 6.0.1 does not have black theme by default, we must get Android 7 for that.
Overall I would say P2 is about 60-70% optimized for black theme in Android 6.0.1.
Whenever I can I choose black themes manually in each application.
Hi again. I never yet buy the phone though. Still thinking about it.
The battery life, screen and the feel of the lenovo p2 is amazing.
Well I've owned a lenovo model before. It was a k910L.Everything worked fine.
But now I'm shocked, why a late 2016 model such as the lenovo p2 gives such problems? Video calling and microphone issues? Is this a hardware or software problem? Is there any other problems this phone has?
This is sad, didn't expect this from lenovo. Lenovo phones, software and hardware should be improved by now. They've been making phones for a while now.
Please give me honest answers.
Thank you to all those who will reply.
