I took my chances and upgraded to nougat last night. I did factory reset before and after the update. So far everything is perfect. No common bugs as people are complaining, like loudspeaker volume decreased, notifications stuck on notification area. I dont even have problem in whatsapp when activating emojis - there is no black space in the bottom of the screen, regardless if on screen navigation buttons are hidden or not.
According to tweet p2 will struck in nougat forever. No future os update from lenovo.
Igot p2 last week , the phone is very good , fast and reliable, but the only major probl for me that i cant deal with the BLANK NAVIGATION BAR AT BOTTOM, how can i make is visible? , how can i disable it (not hide)?
the blank navigation bar actually took from screen size ,anybody can help me without rooting
Proud owner, 21 Sep 2017I recommend you to factory reset after Android 7.0 update Hi all,
I upgraded to Nougat 7.0 and have found no problems yet. I am happy with the speed of the apps and speed of the phone.
I have not done a factory reset. Would a reset be recommended to ensure speed and app optimization?

But i have come across few people who had reported few top/bottom spots/areas unresponsive in screen which i believe is hardware issue. May be bad luck to get faulty ones and there should be some support/return of defective ones available i believe.

Having said that Lenovo P2 is a decent buy if you get in sale/discount (as is usual with Flipkart etc in India region) at 20-25% discount or even slightly more with card offers/return of old phones etc
Remember esp in India Lenovo P2 was launched around Oct-2016 i believe and was launch price was 17K for 4GB RAM-32GB storage variant,,16K for 3GB-32GB variant.
So if you get around 12-12.5K or even slightly less with card offers/exchange etc go for it.
You need screen guard for sure as display replacement would make you mad as it is costly compared to whole price of device in these mid range phones.

I put it down to a bad batch, or series of batches. Bad batches which miss being stopped at the Quality Assurance level can occur at any time throughout the manufacturing. As with any manufacturing, sometimes the initial production of a model (of anything) may contain bugs or faults, which when brought to the attention of the company, (or discovered by their own Quality Assurance tests), they often endeavor to remedy the fault in later batches of production. In theory. My phone was made less than 8 months ago, and I will be watching it to see if any problems occur over time.
From my analysis, In terms of screen shattering gold variant of Lenovo p2 is much stronger than the black variant

This phone is on Android 7.0 (Nougat), no root access.

Android Security patch level 1 July 2017.
Xiaomi make some alright phones, and my friend has a Redmi 3s. Compared to the P2, the Xiaomi MI A1 photo quality is not very different. Goes to show that the f value isn't everything. A few Xiaomis include a 4000 mA capacity, and some Xiomis have super amoled screens, but the MI A1 has a 3080 mA battery and an LTPS IPS screen, which might be how that device is able to be priced lower. Almost none of the Xiaomis include LTE band 28, which means they will not be as popular with Australian Optus and Telstra customers (but Australia Vodaphone uses bands 1, 3 and 5, meaning good compatibility with that network provider).

I am not too concerned about the phone being old as it's specs are top notch for me. But I don't want my touch screen failing after few months

If we don't have the three priority above, just forget about P2 and invest on Xiaomi MI A1 which I crowned as "The Most Disruptive Android Device for 2017" award...LOL...
