Abhay , 23 Nov 2017Please update the Andriod OS to nougat for this phone modelI highly doubt Lenovo will give it Nougat update.
It is after all kinda a budget device. It got one OS update from Lollipop to Marshmallow, a couple of minor updates, and that's it.
I will just enjoy mine while it last, then move on to a better device next, complete with newer software of course.
CAN someone tell me how to improve the outdoor visibility of K4 note. Also how to increase maximum brightness on this device ? its too low even on full brightness ?????????????
Review and marshmallow update: (Indian) (1.6 gb update)
I bought a refurbished device and it shipped with lollipop...hanged like hell, heated too. Many song videos in mx player 1080p also stuttered and got stuck. Wifi was not fast.
After marshmallow update:
I was blown away and totally surprised.
The phone was 400 % faster
The camera improved even more by 10 %
No hangs ,
WIFI faster by 200 %
Heating reduced by 10 %
The phone looks like stock android in MArshmallow (not a fan of stock)
The negative of marshamllow was
Brightness reduced by 10 %
Am sad about that
BUt what a fantastic update. ( i was thinking of returning the device but now i will keep it.)
Tip: Kindly do not further update the phone with a 41 mb an 38 mb updates that follow......those updates further slow down the phone ! The only update you need to do and stop at is the 1.6 Gb update
AnonD-713606, 06 Nov 2017 I'm brought Lenovo vibe k4 note 5momths ago.problem is Google sign in couldn't.why?please hel... moreIts because if its second hand ........it is registered with some other google email........and if it is first hand...........try other google email that you or someone in your house must have used.
If not that try..........factory resetting your phone.(you will loose all internal data and phone numbers so take backup)
Or else you need google play store......try alternative stores like "Apk pure app, mobilegenie app" etc.
If you cant sign into your phone during start up.....see youtube videos to bypass mediatek processors in phone !
Hope this helps

I suggest you bring your device and charger together to service center to have them checked. Perhaps the battery need replacement. Hope all goes well.
After using this mobile for 7 months, it's cannot fully charging. I only get 2% battery after charging for 10 hours. What a bad quality...
I keep on getting pop-ups about Google Service Plugin has stopped, whether online or offline. My phone version is 1.0.4.
I've not been able to solve this issue.
Thanks for your help.
I have been using this phone for about 1,5 years. the performance is good. heating problem yes, but there is almost no lagging. just, after 8 months buying it, all of sudden it turned off and I couldn't turn it on so I went to service center and they had to change all internal component. good thing it was still on warranty.
