After a long time of waiting for the upgrade and update. Took me about 5hrs (my internet is pretty slow) but anyway I got stuck on boot loop so I had to reformat it with the help of my awesome colleague, the good thing is it was already MARSHMALLOW!! But I seriously think that they should fix this problem because last I check it wasn't only me who got stuck on boot loop. Anyway, I will list down all the good stuff and the bad about this update (based from using it for 2 days). You guys are free to post all your observations as well so as to help our devs for their next awesome update because to be honest the problems I'm having at the moment beats the good part of this update so I will start with the badddd!
1. The fingerprint scanner is still not working. The main reason why I upgraded was because I was hoping that the scanner will be fixed because I really love this feature, but I was disappointed it's still not working. Though I think this is really not a software problem anymore. Maybe there is really something wrong with my scanner. I tried the engr mode and it can't detect my scanner. So maybe it was pretty stupid to upgrade in the first place since I didn't back up my stuff and lost everything lmao.
2. My battery is draining so fast. It lasts for about 7-8 hrs max??? Before the update my phone can last up to more than 12 hrs even with texting and gaming and stuff. It was way better than this.
3. It heats up. Not when I'm charging but when I'm using data and gaming. I mean I know most phones does that but its different. I'm not playing heavy games. Or is candy crush, clash of clans and party in my dorm heavy?
4. I think it's eating up a lot of RAM even when I'm not using it, it was really different from the last one. Back then I was asking if my phone is using 1gb of ram whats the use of the other 1gb? But right now, its eating up 1.5gb even when I'm not using it.
5. I'm not sure about you guys, but it kind of lags. When I open an app it kind of freeze for a sec, but I can live with that. LOL
Anyone updated for the latest 16 MB post MM update? Got push notification today itself. Reviews please?

Nand, 11 May 2016There is separate slot for inserting Micro SD card ..Can we use micro sdhc card... Any idea
Dual SIM problem... Does anybody have problem with dual sim operations after update on marshmallow? When I want to call somebody with SIM1 and remember that choice, every next call is placed with that SIM for every person in my contact list. If I set "always ask" it is very boring to choose SIM for every call... I didn't have this problem with old lollipop.
I've been using the phone for the past 5 months. Vibe has been great in its overall performance.
But I've an issue with my phone: while it connects well with my home WiFi, my office WiFi network doesn't work. The phone gets connected, signal strength is excellent but I am unable to use Internet at office & I'm forced to switch back to mobile data.
The tech guys in office tried a lot and said the issue is with the phone. Is there a solution to this issue?
mike, 13 May 2016please anybody tell me that do I have to buy new sim bcoz it supports nano sim or could I cut ... moreYes, vibe p1 supports a sim cut into nano sim. But it depends on which kind of some you were using before. For eg: airtel micro sims can be cut and used but the same isn't possible for DoCoMo. I had that bad experience and had to get a new nano sim for DoCoMo. Hope this helps.
2fher, 16 May 2016What is ur update version Kelly66? downgrade to s135 then update to s137 through internetI am on MM. Actually, this weird 1% drop has been going on from the time I bought the phone in Dec 15. So, don't think downgrading to S135 or 137 will help.
Wanted to know whether battery recalib will help in anyway.
Only reason to downgrade to S137 is to see whether battery life increases, but one will have to give up on the smoother UI post MM upgrade and also improved FP recognition.
kelly66, 15 May 2016Thanks, 2fher! I don't have a charging to 100% problem, but during every discharge cycle I ... moreWhat is ur update version Kelly66? downgrade to s135 then update to s137 through internet

2fher, 15 May 2016How to calibrate Lenovo Vibe P1 battery without root access?
1. Discharge your Le... moreThanks, 2fher!
I don't have a charging to 100% problem, but during every discharge cycle I see a 1% sudden battery drop at 88%, 80, 73, 58% and thereafter a 7-8% continuous drop after it goes below 30% (start may be from 27% or 25% onwards).
Will battery recalibration solve this issue? Any particular app in mind? I am not rooted so app based recalib will not work?
