AnonD-550862, 30 Oct 2017somebody said you cannot use banking apps with custom ROMs why is that ? Once you root the phone it becomes more vulnerable to virus, malwares etc, so its better not to use custom rom if you want to use your phone for banking

azhar75, 30 Oct 2017If after 15 November no OTA, meaning they'll be no more OTA...Lenovo promissed that there will be quarterly security update. Is not that?
AnonD-550862, 30 Oct 2017somebody said you cannot use banking apps with custom ROMs why is that ? Partially true. With root you cannot use banking apps.

Abdul Aziz Mansoor, 28 Oct 2017Hello guys, i bought this phone about a month ago its awesome, only one problem what i found i... moreI had the same issue, and it resolved after a hard reset.
Now, it rarely happen.
If updating to the latest firmware didn't help, then you should try a hard reset.
Yet, the problem is still happening, but less often.
WE NEED P3 ALIVE. xD

Abhipore, 26 Oct 2017HI. I bought this model (3gb/32gb) from flipkart in august. i was so excited about this phone.... moreHey, so you say that the bugs pretty much involved the stock firmware?
But I have this concern now... You said you bought it from Flipkart. Is your unit a real P2a42 by model? Because seeing how half the users report bugs and half don't, I started to think that perhaps just those who ordered the Chinese P2c72 flashed with P2a42 firmware were having bugs.
Either way, I can't find any viable option to order a P2a42 to my country, but I saw it's not too expensive (still more than the Chinese version) on Flipkart and thought about trying to forward it from India somehow. But I want to know it's the real deal and not just another Chinese version with the ROM switched.
1 possible problem with custom ROMS and rooting is that you cannot use banking apps.
MaybeLenovo, 25 Oct 2017Hey, I considered buying this phone a couple of months ago, but reading about the several (pos... moreHI. I bought this model (3gb/32gb) from flipkart in august. i was so excited about this phone. But disappointed after using it for few days because there are many flaws in nougat firmware.
As you mentioned there is a lagging and stuttering is present at current rom. So i decided to unlock its bootloader and use custom roms. But the biggest pain is that you have to wait for 14 days to unlocking the bootloader for this particlular device and require lenovo id. Once it unlocked then relocking is not possible. But then using custom recovery such as TWRP u can flash custom roms and do many things with your device. I flashed dolby atmos. There are many custom roms are available on XDA for this device and recently android 8.0 oreo(Alpha stage) rom also available. But after using custom rom i can say that many of the bugs are gone.
Purchased Lenovo P2 recently, updated it to Android 7 immediately and it works perfectly. Absolutely great phone! Excellent display (AMOLED rocks), not too heavy if you take into account that the battery inside this thing is huuuuge. Double tap to wake - I loved this on Nokia N7 and Lumia 700 and still love it with P2 (although I use fingerprint reader more and more). Fingerprint reader with gestures - didn't even know how useful this can be until I started using it!!! When you use the fingerprint reader gestures (tap to go back, double tap for task list), Android command bar is hidden which gives even more space on the screen). I've started using Android after long time so I cannot comment on Android version that comes with the phone but it does not seems bloated to me - it looks clean and it is fast. And I think that Lenovo P2 is better purchase than Huawei P10 Lite.
LLL, 25 Oct 2017From what I can remember, Sony IMX258 sensor.Thanks. If that's the model on all batches then it's pretty good, as I considered buying the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 a couple of days ago but then read they've been sneaky and replaced the Sony IMX258 module on all newer batches with a worse Samsung or Omnivision module, so all reviewers which said the camera is good for the price (not amazing, obviously) were reviewing a camera different to what's available now.
But I have a different issue with the P2 now... I read that all versions with 64gb/4gb are actually the Chinese P2c72, and that if it's sold as "global" the seller just switched the ROM. The Chinese one supports less bandwidth and some people said they couldn't update to newer global firmwares.
Is that true? It's pretty annoying. I would even get the 32gb/4gb version if it were a true global, but all I found is a couple of people selling it on eBay for 150%, sometimes over 200% the price of the 64gb version. What the hell.
