To start things of, on a scale from worst phone ever to craziest most supreme phone ever, it's between descent and barely good, I'm not saying the phone is bad, but combine the cons and bad things and you've got yourself a pretty terrible phone, especially for a phone that's barely 2 years old and already has alot of lag, cons that ruin the phone: useless power saving slider, f/2.2 primary camera where even on 1600 ISO it cannot shoot a video for over 360p, notification led only has 2 colors(red and blue), 2GB of RAM (old and dead), and let's not forget the CPU, it's octa core (good) but it's 4x 1.5GHz & 4x 1.1GHz and believe me the distance rendering in games is slow, and the chipset is also old (snapdragon 615), big battery life, but once you're on video playback/Bluetooth/ or updating or downloading whatever, I can assure you it's like using a 2200 mAh battery. and it's very thick 9.9 freaking mm, and get this, it's coz of it's battery and the p2, sequel to this one having a bigger battery is thinner. another thing is the bottom where the mic looks like a speaker and only for symmetry, bad, and the phone comes yes with Google play music but no actual lenovo music player (might be just for me) and piece of advice, update the software immediately coz you'll find better options, that is unless you shoot alot of videos in which, after the update ruins the video and makes wierd lens angles. so if you're a boring accountant who doesn't like taking pictures or videos, then this is the phone for you, no offense.

denny, 27 May 2017Anyone help me with how to connect my phone to my TV.i tried with USB cable.. it s not working... morehi. nowadays i am looking for how i can connect my phone and tv.if your tv has a miracast support , you can connect them via wireless.otherwise , you have to use micro usb to hdmi convertor. however there is a issue.i don't know p1 support mhl whether or not.i'm working on it.
The performance, video, sound quallity, battery life and primary camera pictures are great.
However after ~half an year of use there are some problems:
Somebody already mentioned in the comments but i have this too - can't change wallpaper at the moment it always crashes the shell. I have to do miracle workarounds by changing shells, etc to switch wallpaper.
When playing games or working for long time the phone overheats. This led to display "burns" which are these permanently lighter areas on the screen.
Also no updates for quite some time... like lenovo forgot about the existance of this device.
Overall a strong choice for the phone
Phone is very good and battery back up is very good but front camera is very bad clarity.
Anyone help me with how to connect my phone to my TV.i tried with USB cable.. it s not working.. anyway to connect.. will I connect with the help of OTG.. is it supported??
I lost the original charger or cable but the socket is still there how can I still have Rocket charge
My phone sudden off..I thought battery is gone.after charging still can't switch ON..
i can't change my wallpaper even after i cleared the setting data as told by the pop up notification....what should i do?
