On the contrary, my 1 year old Lenovo P2 is still working perfectly well without any problem, except maybe a slight decrease in battery capacity because of my heavy usage and frequent charging since the begining.
IÂ’ve owned the p2 for a year. Up until a month ago this was an excellent phone. Then all of a sudden it developed a bug. It stopped synching contacts properly. I was the first to log this problem on the Lenovo forum. Then others logged it. Now dozens have done so. Lenovo briefly tried to solve the problem then seemed to lose interest. I and many others became bitterly disappointed with LenovoÂ’s lack of care. The phone is unusable. There is currently no fix. I and others have had to purchase new phones and ditch our P2s.
IndiaP2, 14 Apr 2018By the way, didn't tell this before but hey P2 users, even though there may be many trends in ... moreThe good thing about having 5,100mAh energy supply is that the "rocket charge" tech will quickly fill up 50% of 5,100mAh capacity within 30 minutes... this is definitely needed when we wakeup every morning, take shower & breakfast before starting car's engine...
No point those mobile that has less than 3,500mAh energy supply to have quick/dash/fast/express charge tech when only 50% energy is refilled after 30 minutes... having around 1,750mAh energy supply might not be enough to cover standby & usage from 8am till 6pm; especially for heavy intensive apps running in the background...
Awaiting for Sammy to embed Galaxy Note9 with 4,000 mAh energy supply this year...it may come with Qualcomm QC 4+... they have to test thoroughly the next
gen 7,000 mAh energy supply for foldable dual-screen Galaxy Note10 (aka Galaxy X...?) next year...
In the meantime, Huawei Watt Lab has a prototype to get energy recharge to 48% from 5 minutes charging period...but 48% from total of how many mAh is yet to be disclosed ; source https://youtu.be/DKbwGT_RBM8
The LeMoto's Rocket Charge is not as "efficient" as OnePlus Dash Charge because during Rocket Charge, lots of energy loss via heat... Dash Charge does not have this deficiency...
When connected to internet it shows 4G and not LTE. Other phones show LTE. Why?
IndiaP2, 14 Apr 2018By the way, didn't tell this before but hey P2 users, even though there may be many trends in ... moreHeat and batteries are a really bad thing, until we get proper sensors on every cells it's better during charge to keep it cool and wait couple more minutes personally I use a quality charger and the phone is always cool under charge
By the way, didn't tell this before but hey P2 users, even though there may be many trends in the recent smartphone launches but still then our P2 rocks yet in the battery & charging department...
Haven't you realized yet that the charger that comes with this phone is indeed technically the best and the "Fastest" charger you could ever get?? Yes that's true, our 24Watt fast charger is indeed the fastest if we do not consider the next generation Qualcomm quick charge 4.0...
The second highest and also in the rarest cases that I have came through is a close to 22Watt charger & extremely few of the 20Watt chargers being common...
And yes our P2 still rocks and will be rocking over the years to be technically the fastest charger in Mathematical/physical terms (i.e., 12V at 2A being highest =24Watt)...
Even the recently launched flagship Samsung Galaxy S9/S9+ supports the old quick charge 2.0, being a total shame of Samsung to bundle that old low rated charger for its flagship device!!
@azhar75 Whats your take on this?? Leaving the camera & old aspect ratio screen, our P2 will definitely overtake over others for another couple of years when it comes to battery and the most "Powerful" charger!!
jjj, 13 Apr 2018it"s realy can update system to 7 nougat?Yes the Software of Lenovo P2 can be updated to Android 7.0 Noughat. The last update was 1 November 2017, Built Number P2a42_S251_171107_ROW.
Chris576, 09 Apr 2018In terms of Battery Life do you think it is better to choose this phone or the Redmi Note 5 (c... moreLenovo P2 is superior to Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 not only in terms of battery life, but also in terms of Super Amoled Display and NFC.
I don't know about camera comparisson test, maybe Redmi Note 5 is slightly better because it's a new phone. But over all Lenovo P2 is stil much better than Redmi Note 5.
I cannot find in the market a phone that has power efficient Snapdragon 625 Soc that is coupled with 5,100 mAh battery, and there is NFC in it, except the magnificent and superior Lenovo P2.
Syed Taha Ali, 08 Apr 2018Don't buy this phone if you plan to root it or install custom roms. The bootloader is locked a... moreWell, you can still unlock the bootloader of your P2. All you need are following things.
1) lenovo id.(create if you don't have one.)
2 patience. Lenovo takes 14 days to give the permission to unlock the bootloader.
Go to Developer options- Tap on Enable OEM unlocking- Enter your Lenovo id and wait for 14 days.
3)Once after 14 days it will ask you to reboot in fastboot mode and using adb and fastboot method bootloader will be unlocked and after that custom recovery such TWRP or red wolf recovery will be flashed.
4} Then visit xda website for various custom roms.
