I bought this phone when it was launched. its camera was just wow. comparing to current 13mp camera its camera was just great. battery backup was good. display and design also good. and on the top UI was flawless and well arranged ad with some very useful apps. problem came when its screen got cracked one day and all replacements were Chinese, non of them stay for 1-2 months.
Cons: Below average GPS, cannot use Google Play, low internal storage, cannot play Pokemon Go.
Pros: Good camera.
Pls can I change my s820 touch pad...it fell 0ff my hand nd since den it stoped touching...
My S820 was updated to S820_ROW_S223_150119 (KitKat). Going to Settings > Display, there is a 'Wireless Display'. Tapping Wireless Display just show 'To see devices, turn wireless display on' message, but there is no option to set it.
Is the problem on my device, or S820 did not actually support Wireless Display, or the feature is actually there but it's being locked by Lenovo?

D.Ambrose, 17 Jul 2016I have been three years with this phone and nothing is problem with this phone on my observati... moreThe same is with me for last 1year. Before 5 months the google play store was missing.. But I managed with mobo market. After some months I got the message that it is in meta mode. I visited the tecnician and he repaired it. Last day there was a new message to reset and the reset button does nothing..
I was really happy with this phone for the first few months till I missed play store...

Hi.. I just want to ask if it is ok to upgrade my lenovo S820 android KitKat to lollipop?, how? Thank you . 😊
Ive been using this phone for 2 years, & here are some opinions I have about it.
* 12mp rear camera loses its details in low light, but very good performance in capturing panoramas or closeups. 2mp front is mediocre.
* I browse a lot using Chrome & Youtube, & I notice my phone starts to heat up after about 2 hours. That was a year ago. Now, even when Im only listening to my music, the phone heats up pretty easily.
* The battery doesnt last that long, I had to charge it once a day. But a 2000mah battery for this price range is quite okay.
* Has minimal lags, but it only happens when I open multiple tabs (about 10-12 tabs) on Chrome.
Those were my experiences in these 2 years. Im sure other people have different opinions. Overall, of course it doesnt perform flawlessly, but for its price, I think its really worth buying. Have a good day! :)
