I am returning the product after all.
And I have talked with a Amazon customer support person and asked about why they are not allowing product reviews on the product page. guess their reason? A technical glitch that they were unaware of. Sounds like bullshit to me.
They were doing a PR campaign for this phone release for weeks, and boasted about their 1sec sales. I am pretty sure this product release is high on their priorities, so there is no way they would have missed "unable to review" problem until 3 days after release. It sure as hell looks like they are deliberately stopping to that more customers can buy the phone without any proper reviews. The cusomer support person says it really is a bug, but I don't believe him. We all know how tech gaints manipulate stuff, I am still suspecting the same here.
Any suggestions on what to do here. They will be refunding me ofcourse. But there is a bigger problem with Amazon here. Should I just let go or should I do something else to escalate this apparent manipulation for getting better sales?
JIN, 22 Jan 2016hardware is not at all good.........cheap.....Who said so?? I've used many Micromax phones and their hardware is awesome (very sturdy), the Micromax devices that I've used have faced many drops but still, not even one crack on front screen (though back is scraped off).
I too agree that they use cheap and dumb MediaTek Processors but they too have taken moves to shift to Qualcomm and has about 15 devices on Qualcomm Snapdragon Chipset. And screens are anyways sturdy Gorilla Glasses, and few phones (the Selfie series) have cameras from Sony!! What else is cheap out there?? Even the Micromax Badge at the back is always Platinum, Gold or Bronze Printed (Even on a Bolt of Rs. 2,499). What else is cheap??
yawningmaniac, 22 Jan 2016The phone is good enough. The camera's are average, nothing extraordinary. The display is bril... moreOnly thing is to give a good reason to return , which they should think as valid. Most of sellers like flipkart say heating is normal, see what Amazon has to say.
Got the phone yesterday... No issue till now.. Multitasking is very smooth.. It shows lag in intensive gaming but u can play them after changing the graphic setting high to medium no langs in midlevel games. Camera is avarage to the price point its decent. A good phone in the range of 12k and no heating problem in daily usages. Satisfied with this one definitely a big upgrade for k3 note.
Today .. I received the phone, most I liked is VR Headset, no heating issue may be because of immediately updated the phone. Two sims + memory card slot, it's good phone in 12K budget, my suggestion to go for it.
This phone has a serious auto shutdown issue... Mtk board is poor. Switching off ever few minutes.. But luckily amazon agreed for refund. Pl don't buy

.. will we get the actual pic quality of 13mp camera
wht abt hd video recording??
when i took front camera.automatically auto focus will came and take pic...so how to disable that automatically taking pic in front camera?
I bought the mobile on 20th and I haven't faced any heating problems. Camera quality is so good. No lagging as of now. I really love the smoothness of this mobile. Battery is so good. I prefer every one to buy this if you are looking for a good mobile in 10-15k price range.
The phone is good enough. The camera's are average, nothing extraordinary. The display is brilliant. Played only subway surfers, there is lag even in this small game, I am disappointed about that. But general multitasking performance is flawless as far as I saw.
The fingerprint sensor is working well too.
But ONE BIG ISSUE. The top part of the phone is getting heated up like hell. Even with mild usage. That is one big concern for me. I am thinking of returning the phone if this issue doesn't disappear in a day or too. I can feel the heat in my pocket while driving to work for 30 mins. It should have cooled down, it should not have heated up so much in the first place. I love the phone, but the heating issue is a big NO. It may not be with all devices, only some random products, maybe I am an unlucky one.
I think people need to wait for better phone with better performance in the same price range. I do not think this phone brings anything new to the competition.
AMAZON is sneaky! They are not allowing product review even after 3 days after release. It is like they want to hide the reviews so that more customers would blindly buy the phone. That is just wrong, I talked with a customer care executive about this, he said he will escalate this. But this is just cheap business tactics by Amazon. Believe me, I love Amazon and I liked the phone very much, it feels classy. But I am thinking of returning it, if Amazon causes any trouble I will freak the hell out because it is their duty to allow every prospective customer to be aware of any and every problem with the devices they are selling, and reviews help in that. I am so pissed at them. If the heating problem subsides, I may keep the phone. But i am not very positive about it.
Any suggestions on how to return a mobile phone to Amazon, I've never done it before? Like what all things I should have for returning this phone?
Dx, 22 Jan 2016Does Lenovo K4 Note support 'Vainglory' game... Actually some devices don't support this game.... moreTried the game both on standard and high settings, I can say that it ran smoothly with some lag in intense battle with a lot of effects on high settings but doesn't affect gameplay.
