I bought this phone for my son, because my friend had some Lenovo and was quiet happy with that, but now my opinion on Lenovo phones is going down:
+ Photo quality is good enough
- Video... definitly it's not a dedicated video camera.
- System memory is disaster! If you kill all of your apps off, system still uses more than a half of its memory! It's ca. 1,7 GB!
- Battery it's drained all the time. You should buy veeeeeeeeery long cable for this phone if you want to be "mobile"

Today at work I didn't use much the phone only for couple calls and after 9 hours, the phone used only 7% of its battery, so I still have 93% left because I used super power setting. :)
With my old phone by now I could say bye to half of battery only for stand by, if I had many calls or web surfing then I had to keep it on charge. :(
So this phone has brilliant settings, I think after using these smart setting I reached the conclusion that DU Battery Saver is totally unnecessary. :)

Got the phone 4 days ago.Fast snapy and responsive.Since i used to manage my old Galaxy SII to get atleast a day without charging i was able to squeeze 3 days with the Lenovo and i believe it can go even more.
Turn Off Your Wi-Fi when you don't use it (despite that it is smart and it is really low power drainer when on but not connected)
In Settings > Power Manager > Background app managment Disable all aplication from starting up automatically that you think you don't need (you won't recieve notifications from them like Facebook or messages from Viber until you start them manually so be smart what you need and what you don't! Facebook is a big resource and power drainer and I personally don't care about it's notifications so i'm disabling it) , leave the Google App to run auto in order to provide proper services. I was very happy to find this option cause on the Galaxy SII i needed Greenify for this kind of app managment and rooted android.
Camera - Awesome!NO LIVE PREVIEW in Pro Mode for the ISO settings - rest have live preview i hope they will fix this one in software update.Autofocus very fast and precise.Strange Lag when shooting with flash light and then you want to view the shot i believe there is some post processing of the image when shooting with the flash ligh and this is why the slow load immediately after taking the shot.Very nice flash light , pictures almost no color disturbance from the flash.
Speaker - medicore to good but loud enough.
Display - AWESOME
Audio jack - haven't tested sound quality on headphones or anything elese.
Body - I took the RED one it has lovely design and looks - slim , feels light , solid and very gripy.
Charging - Charger is 1500mA from 15% it needs 30min to 35-40% , 1 hour to 80% , ~1:45 hours to 100% personally happy with the charge time
I'm personally very happy from this device. :)

That's very clever. I've been using that option for the past days and it works 100% :)

Thank you very much for your helpful information. I bought this phone yesterday and bought DU Battery saver as well. I will follow your comments and find out the result. My previous phone is P70 I was very happy with it, but lacking compass sensor, 2 sim 4G, and good camera. All these I found in the vibe shot. I hope to get same battery time after applying Battery saving tools.

Anonymous, 12 Sep 2015what about headphone?Headphone are just fine for me! I like the music and the way I can hear the other person while calling, the sound is perfect. :)
Hy Guys, can someone help me with the internet settings for Lenovo z90a40 (Vibe shot). I have two sim cards, one which I used for calls and second for internet data. The first one can also used for data in case of need. I observed that when I switch the use of data, it switches the 4/3G and my 2nd sim of internet data becomes inactive. In my first days of usage I was able to change the internet operator without occuring this switch. Can anyone tell me what could be the problem and how can I solve it? Thanks
