I love this phone, but after 1 month, my problems are becoming a bit critical, hope Lenovo fix with the September update.
(1) wifi randomly drops out - only way to reconnect to wifi is with reboot. (tested in different wifi situations including office, shop, home)
(2) system crashed once while sleep mode (while I was sleeping) - result was Alarm did not ring. When I woke up, could not turn on phone. Had to press and hold power until reset...
(3) Does not support ongoing use of 3rd party chat like Whatsapp, Viber, Line = if you press close app function, and RAM clear app. All apps close and no londer receive messages until you re-open them. Even with 'exclude' list ...doesn't seem to work
lock screen using
(4)Pattern unlock - doesn't always engage finger, haev to press on-off then try again
(5) Sometimes during a call - screen does not Black, so random apps will open against my face ...
These all seem like software bugs that could be easily fixed ..... please try to incorporate into update of September????
I'm using lenovo P70-A (2gb RAM version) for almost five months.
If you prefer good camera, this phone might not suitable. Speaker not loud enough, and sound is like burst. However, headphone can solve music quality issue. Second SIM card is only for 2g, and for first SIM cards, 3g not stable in Singapore, but it's still acceptable. For notification light, it only support wechat, sms and miss call. Other than that, Facebook messenger, whatsapp, line and other social applications are not supported.
The strongest point on this phone, battery. I won't say it's bad. For the first five months, my phone battery will drop 1% in standby mode without wifi, gps and bluetooth(from 12am to 8am). However, my phone battery drop 10% from 12am to 8am in same situation nowadays. No idea what's going on.
Game performance, currently only NBA2k15 is lagging. Heroes and castle 2 will keep crash in game. Other games, so far so good.
Overall, it's still usable to me. However, I'm looking forward to ASUS Zenfone Max (not sure whether it's going to be released, it has 5000mah battery!!!)

ahmed , 19 Jul 2015Which better Lenovo p 70 or huawei p8 liteI am using p70 and my friend has p8 lite. P8 lite has a better camera and thats all. P70 has better battery life, better gaming, alot of features like you can switch your primary sdcard which is really usefull for me. If you were to ask me p70 is better
AnonD-376376, 27 Jul 2015Please share your gaming experience with lenovo p70Great gaming performance. No lags at all. Some people are experiencing multitouch problem but its fine on my device. Even Multitasking upto 6 really heavy games simultaneously does not make the phone slow.
Anonymous, 30 Jul 2015How bad is the camera quality? 13M pixel should be goodThe camera takes fine picture in daylight but when there is low light it is really bad (with or without flash).

There should be an option for Language & input. You can recognize it by looking at the icons of the the options. The Language & input option will have a T for its icon.

Maybe the version of the game is not compatible. I had to download old versions of gangstar vegas, gangstar rio, amazing spiderman 2 etc. You should try other games to make sure its not just a compatibility issue. MC5 v1.3.1a works on my device.

Ninjasttyle, 04 Aug 2015Lenovo p70 or Sony Xperia m4 AquaIf you are looking for good battery life and performance., P70 would be my choice but if you would prefer a better camera over battery and performance then you should go for m4.

I am using this phone and camera is the only thing i am not satisfied with. Its not all that bad but it could do better. Battery is up to its mark and the phone only heats a little while charging trust me i play alot of HEAVY game no lag no heat. You should really claim your warranty (if you bought it with warranty).
