Well,I'm using this phone since January 2014 and until now it still in good condition and yes, I'd upgraded it to kitkat. No problems for me.But, now there are a lot of new phone released and i want to try it too. So i might think to sell it for a low price.

I tried it and now there are many different themes for this phone. Good luck!

Guys, I'm planning to upgrade to Kitkat again after downgrading back to JB twice from Kitkat. Can anyone help me with latest version update available on Kitkat for P780 and does it include inbuilt swipe keyboard (my reason for downgrading back to JB was there was no swipe keyboard earlier). So anyone facing any problem with latest kitkat patch / update?
I have been using this phone for some time now, and truthfully is has not given me a significant problems. there is OTA upgrades always. I am using Android 4.4.2. Maybe all your phones are not original. I bought mine for $300. Do not disgrace the phones. All phones are not perfect. Even Note 4 and others have their own problems. I love my Lenovo P780
