-Great new animations
-Aesthetically pleasing and the visual qualities have a premium touch to them
-Sound quality, for me, has improved
-Camera seems better, although I was satisfied with it even before the upgrade.
-Moving stuff between SD card and internal storage using file managers is now possible
-screen recording! (Use az screen recorder from playstore)
-Performance, particularly in games, is now even better than before
-Lock screen does not look outdated any more
-Finally, tons more developer options. (Press build no. 7 times in settings>about phone to unlock)
-WiFi turns off when screen turns off(seriously lenovo?)
-Important built in features like double tap to unlock screen have been removed which leads to people resorting to 3rd party apps with more ram and battery consumption
-Stock weather widget removed
-Changing lock screen wallpaper is not available anymore
-Settings in notification bat have been reduced
-Battery life is almost the same as before
-You can access all quick settings without passing your lock screen(pattern unlock etc) which is pretty useful for oneself but not so useful if you're getting pranked by someone(they could, or anyone you yourself could turn on data connection and waste your balance)
Overall rating w/ verdict : 8.5/10
Â•If you're happy with KitKat, and face no problems,stay with KitKat. However, if you want a better feel, get many problems with KitKat fixed, at the expense of less (but major) bugs as well,this update is for you.

Is anybody knows how to move apps to sd card after lolipop update?
Lenovo User, 13 Nov 2015How can we close the recent apps for the updated OS?Double tap on home button
The phone is awesome and good and easy. The only biggest drawback is the sound Volume and Magnetic sensor.
The ring tone volume is very low and barely audible in public place.
As there is no magnetic sensor so one cannot install any directional compass App in the phone.
The funny part is its lower model don't have the above problem.
