HARD RESET is as per YouTube below :
Liv, 05 Sep 2017@AZHAR75 does your P2 have any kind of bugs in nougat? Speaker sound volume decreased after th... moreI can confirm that speaker volume is now much weaker than MM.
It really bothered me. Cause back in MM i had my speaker 75%, and it's so powerful, and I was really satisfyed, cause whenever I stumble on a video that has weaker sound, i can boost the volume to 100%.
Now, with Nougat most of the time I need to have it 80%~85%
It of course depends on the video sound. But in general it got weaker.
But, the out of sync issue is much much better now.
Overall, I'm happy with Nougat.
That mught be only my device, I haven't search ed about it. Overall the speaker in Nougat is somewhat acceptable for me.
It's your choice..
I've been using the P780 for merely 2 years. It's the reason I'm monitoring the P-series year-by-year.
Now, that P780 is becoming one of my CCTV camera all day all night...LOL...

AnonD-66956, 05 Sep 2017Totally agreed. P2 is the only good device produced by lenovo. K6 power is the 2ndcorrect i am using k6 power good phone with dual speakers did n't have money to buy P2. Lenovo P2 is an excellent phone.

External speaker volume slightly by 10% decreased but it's for the sake to avoid distortion at max volume. So it's a fix actually to Mellow firmware.
Energy consumption is similar but better in terms of standby / idle drain...0.2% per hour in Mellow but 0.1% per hour in S244 Nougat...
To hard reset:
It is safe to OTA to S244...
@AZHAR75 does your P2 have any kind of bugs in nougat? Speaker sound volume decreased after the update? Is battery life same, worse or better? I still use android M and don't know if should update or not. How to do hard reset if needed?
AnonD-678712, 04 Sep 2017But G5S Plus does not have an AMOLED screen.Yea. But u shall like software and camera if battery is not ur priority.

anyone got an idea which is better among lenovo p2 , infinix zero 4 plus and infinix note 4 pro ?
AnonD-678712, 04 Sep 2017Thanks for your opinion. Any problems with P2, you are facing right now?The current Nougat S244 firmware is stable enough for daily usage.
Some complaint occasionally stuttering and hiccup which I never face. Could be either they install "illegal" apps or apps which are not compatible with Nougat or they never bother to HARD RESET after upgrading to Nougat.
Factory reset doesn't properly reset. Must do HARD RESET.
Others also use cheap and slow microSD card which leads to further instability. I'm using dual SIM with SIM adapter to have microSD used simultaneously. Of course I use 64GB microSDXC UHS 2 (lifetime warranty!!!) which cost about 12% of P2 market price. Really satisfy with the investment.
Study P2 in YouTube channels to guide you whether to pull the trigger or not...
Just FYI, I've been waiting for specs like P2 for more than 3 years... AMOLED with NFC and front fingerprint scanners plus gigantic energy capacity and fast charge. I thought of Samsung A9 Pro but it's too heavy and bulky. After P2, comes Asus Zenfone 3 Zoom which is rather "expensive" by looking at the specs and features. So, that's why I never looking back after getting P2 becoz it has performed beyond my expectations... P2 is the only good phone Lenovo has ever produced.
AnonD-678712, 04 Sep 2017@azhar75, in your opinion, which one should I prefer between the P2 and the G5S Plus?
I desir... moreJ7 Pro for higher resale value... you can easily re-sell J7 Pro if you don't like it... P2 or G5s+ has no demand... Ppl rather buy brand new P2 or G5s+ than get second hand unit...
But between P2 or G5s+, get P2 for the 5,100mAh capacity which will be around 3,000mAh after 2 years.... G5s+ after 2 years will be around 1,500mAh which can be overcome by powerbank...
Your money, your call... I just give my opinion which anyone can disagree...
azhar75, 04 Sep 2017J7 Pro is the closest match to P2... Summore, you'll get Samsung Pay...(?)@azhar75, in your opinion, which one should I prefer between the P2 and the G5S Plus?
I desire to use the phone for 2-3 years minimum.
