After a week of use here is my opinion:
The phone is VERY slippery. The plastic cover that comes with it feels kinda cheap. Capacitive keys are not backlit and if you are using your phone in the dark you cannot see them at all, at least on a blue version. This can be remedied by installing soft keys.
There is no notification LED. For me it doesnt make a difference but someone might miss this feature.
Performance are really good. Not once did it lag or freeze, it just works.
Battery is "ok", could be better but it's not bad either. Can hold about 4-5h on screen time, playing games and web browsing. This is with display at about 60% brightness, whitch for me was bright enough.
The heat is not an issue at all. It gets warm under load but not more then pretty much any other phone i had.
Overall in that price range, it's one of the best buys currently if you can live with those few problems i mentioned at the top.
Its wow design & specs,,,,, Its dual selfie camera creates amazing pics. I recommend it for all selfie lovers & stylish people.
Gsm Arena also mentioned that it is available at gold color too.. Never seen a beautiful phone than this one

Trying to help you from wasting money on it. I am from India.
You dont need to worry bro, Its worth working even at lowest price. I have been using it since 7 days, Its performance is smooth, sleek and according to my demands. Thanks to Lenovo for its unique dual 8.0 mp selfy camera
