This phone is on Android 7.0 (Nougat), no root access.
Build is P2a42_S244_170725_ROW.
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...

Guys since price of Lenovo p2 is reduced now, should I go for it or the moto g5s plus? Is camera in g5s significantly better?
LLL, 18 Sep 2017My Lenovo Vibe K4 Note developed similar issue 1-2 months ago. Here's a copy of my post in K4... moreLLL and Latvis, for me it was a choice between the Lenovo P2 and the Asus Zenfone 3 Zoom ZE553KL(Taiwan variant). Both have similar specs (and both similar in a few ways to an iPhone 8+). I bought the P2 based on price, the front facing fingerprint button, and the reviews regarding battery life, processor speed, Super AMOLED, memory and the camera's F value of 2.0. The ZE553KL has a better camera f value and has more band compatibility, but I am very happy with the P2 camera performance. So far the biggest thing to get used to regarding this phone is the size. I come from owning the Samsung galaxy S4 mini, S5 mini (both fitted with the enlarged 6000mAh batteries), and an Xperia Z5 compact (which would usually last me 5 hours of battery life). Nowadays there are almost no small phones on the market with a good processor and memory plus a large battery capacity (or detachable battery).
Strange that we still don't have top-notch camera (best possible) from any phone maker but also at least 5000+ mAh battery in 1 device. Is OEM's really afraid to make phone so perfect that nobody will care to buy next model ? I think its silly fear. People will always buy. I would love best possible camera, but buying anything below 5000mAh (non-removable) is not for me. I came to P2 from Galaxy Note2+Zerolemon 9300mAh. So I know about long battery life :)

Certain areas of the screen are no longer responsive to touch input, particularly around keyboard area.
14 Aug 2017
Typing has become slightly problematic, however I am still using it while looking for suitable replacement.
P.S been considering Lenovo P2 and following this thread as well, but seems I won't be getting it after all. I want a significantly better camera than both K4 Note and P2.

Mine is a new device, and I have literally dropped the phone several times without any case or protection on the road and on tiles. I am still awaiting my phone cover to arrive in the mail :( I am happy mine "seems to be ok at the moment", but after your post I wonder if there was a flaw during manufacture, and am now looking on android play for a screen diagnostic app. Might be something available to help detect faulty sensors.
AnonD-697549, 13 Sep 2017kindly any one suggest would i prefer buying lenevo p2 or redmi note 4Wait for P3 as this device is almost an year old now for the market... Also the device has poor screen protection which is more than half of the actual device cost. Moreover no more updates post 7.0..

I dont have latest update installed (still using android 6.0.1) - becouse it is my choice. Anyway just tried your method - didnt solve anything for me.
I noticed that, with my recent update of my firmware, my touch screen sometimes has become unresponsive, but to remedy this I have found that beginning to drag from the top the menu, then pushing it back up again allows me to be able to use the touchscreen again as normal.
Latvis - have you tried this?
That's scary... the digitizer is of poor quality... hence, my hypothesis of the screen is NOT from Samsung is almost believable...
Sad to admit, but after using my P2 for about 8month it started to show infamouse touch screen issues (there is topic about it on Lenovo P2 forum, symptoms on my phone is exatcly the same). Some (so far small, but its noticable) parts of screen just not responding to touch. I have not tested this futher with any diagnostic app, but its a fact. For example I use 1 app which is intended to generate code and then copy it in to other app. I cannot do it anymore. As it happen code is right on position where screen is not responsive. Only solution is to rotate to landscape and then I am able to copy it. It is annoying.
Vinzzz, 17 Sep 2017Sometimes when I charge my Lenovo P2 it charges extremely fast and then slows down ( for eg 35... moreThat happend to me once.
I delibretly focused the AC on the phone while charging to minimize heat while "fast charging".
Battery percentage went from 0% to 50% in less than 15 minutes.
When I stopped charging and used the phone, battery got drained faster than usual, way faster.
I drained it. Then fully charge it without focusing the AC to the phone. Things got back to normal.
I'll try azhar's advise. Thank you, azhar for your presence with us throughout months. You are an amazing person.
