AnonD-673234, 06 Nov 2017I wonder which phone the MaybeLenovo user ended up chosing? Regarding the concern over the ... moreI chose the Chinese version because of 64GB and it is cheaper as well, costs $210 on Gearbest. The charger came with North American plug and is a fast charger. Also, the language was already set to English. And the most important, it had a global version of operating system. Even though on chassis it says p2c72, if I go to the phone info it writes p2a42. It upgraded to the Android 7.0 without a problem. I am so glad I chose p2c72.
I choosed P2a42 over P2c72 mainly becouse it have all LTE bands operators in my country uses. P2c72 does not.

Regarding the concern over the 64gb being the Chinese P2c72, yes that is correct, can only find 64GB on the P2c72. However I found the quality and LTE bands to be excellent.
1) the seller just switched the ROM? Yes that is correct, but had no problem.
2) The Chinese one supports less bandwidth? It supports certain LTE bands, but 4G+ is very fast for me, acceptable for my needs where I live in Australia. (See my post from earlier in October regarding the bands)
3) some people said they couldn't update to newer global firmwares? All auto-updates worked correctly for me, and my phone has no lagging or glitches to speak of, since purchase in August 2017.
4) the 32gb/4gb version selling on eBay for 150% or 200% the price of the 64gb version? Yes I noticed this disparity too when I was choosing between the P2a42 and the P2c72. I chose the Chinese phone (P2c72) with the ROW rom (P2a42 rom). Where the phone is being used will determine whether the global phone is the better choice, (albeit at a higher price and lower gb) because of the LTE bands.

Another factor to check is the Band 20 LTE whether the P2c72 is covering the Band 20 or not.
So, need to survey properly before commit to get the P2c72.

So, you might need to get direct help from local 3rd party smartphone kiosk or service centre to help with flashing stock Rest-Of-the-World (ROW) ROM.
Flashing ROM will void the warranty... It's very frustrating but what other choice we have....
Not enough characters in previous post. Does anyone know if I can used the Lenovo P2 users manual to set up the Lenovo P2c72???
I recently purchased a Lenovo P2c72 in Hong Kong. I didn't have time to set it up in H.K. When I got it home I found much to my dismay that the user/instruction manual for this phone was in Chinese. I rang Lenovo Australia. Phone is not being sold here yet so they knew nothing. Went online to Lenovo H.K. They confirmed the this model only comes with Chinese user manual. My question is could I the P2 user manual to set up the P2c72?
Any help would be appreciated.
Latvis, 01 Nov 2017Lenovo/Moto can call their phones as they like (not important). I care about battery life. The... moretouche bro
couldn't agree more
battery is the most important thing after a fast OS
I don't mind a slightly heavy phone if it packs a big battery
hell if P2 can be so slim after that massive battery, I refuse to believe that its not possible to make a slim phone with big battery
Lenovo/Moto can call their phones as they like (not important). I care about battery life. There is like zillion phones out, but only few have battery 5000mAh+. So there is almost no choice for me. (P2 and from newer produtcion date phones, maybe few phones from ASUS).
OEM's got to understand battery is super important thing !
Ok, they can keep put small battery like 3000mAh, but then it have to be swapable (like in old Nokia 3110 phones).
