I have ordered this phone and I have decided not to update it since I have read on many sites about people complaining about the bugs when the software is updated.
Is this a good idea?
I feel like my battery has improved little bit now to which the issue after 51mb update,without doing factory reset but need some days to figure out whether it's been fixed or not and decide to do factory reset.oh well I began to noticed tat right after the update battery begins to behave little abnormal while browsing n gaming. so finally when the battery reached to 3% giving me continues notification to charge I simply switched off n charged till 100%.With heavy heart I switched on n spent some time on screen I have seen some changes.Right now I'm having 3hr52mnts on screen and 11hr20mnts on standby...with battery still 50% remaining.

Don't want the hassle of backing up data and restoring it.. its just very time consuming. I am fed up of doing a factory reset after updating the software every time. I was happier using Note 4. The only thing holding me with this phone is the Sound Quality. Its just awesome. Dolby just blasts the ears paired with JBL headphones !!
Phone is not performing well. even when i use whatsapp to reply to a message, it feels very jerky. Its lagging very often recently after the update.

I felt the audio via headphones has improved.
I've found an Vibe X3 with 16Gb. Exist this version? It's made for an certain country? Thx

But after feeling that when marshmallow will come i will have to update at last i decided to take the risk... And updated both updates 317 & 51 mb... neither factory reset nor backup restore.. But i don't feel that there is much difference and problem... Everything almost same...a very little more fluid to be honest.. Will know about it more in coming days... Right now everything is OK...
What a terrible updation. Battery drain fast.Heating more.Calls cannot be completed.

Never updated software since purchase (Feb-16). Whether updating now is OK with all opinions & apprehensions with regard to battery, Dolby sound etc.
Whether current update will automatically implement previous updates as well?
Pl reply & thanks
My battery was good but installing 51 MB update am noticing battery drop like a hell.What was tis update for only bug fix n stability or is it just a cruel tricks to suffer Vibe x3 users.If anyone facing such probs like me and has already fixed please help me what to do and Dear Lenovo team please don't provide us such update in future to destroy yr flagship device rather than fixing it.

Yeah,,,, am using Lenovo s8 50lc tab and if u explore their official Lenovo forums,,, they won't reply for 1000's of customers quiries and their android updates r a big joke,, they r offering 6.0 update for some silly basic models,,, their service centers solutions take 2 months,,, if u buy Lenovo then u have to forget support and updates permentelly.
And their tag line is like " for those who do,,,,,,", so we have to add " forget" to it :D
About this vibe x3,,,,, it's got so much of demand then all rest of the Lenovo products, but it's almost like permentelly out of stock.
Simple software update for volte fulfills the need of it, but they never release, I really surprise about their developers and their strategies.
From last 3yrs am watching them.
Am really feeling very sad about vibe x3 for lacking of volte and hybrid sim/Mc only option and no FM for Indian customers.
I know and can guess that if they launch x4 in coming months, they definitely degrade it like making it more small display or adding just 1 Xtra feature.
In 1 word,,,,,,,, F***K Lenovo

Phone was behaving laggy and was heating a lot after the update
after couple of reboots, phone has become Normal.
Noticed a Slight gain in Battery life. UI has become lil smoother.
Sound quality has also increased slightly.
Current Baseband : MPSS.BO.2.6.c1.4-00012
Now ,after New updation,sometimes bang and restart. I reset my phone twice. No remedy. Please any remedy.

Hi before Vibe x3 I had Lenovo z2 pro... The z2 was just perfectly perfect for me.. After that I bought this... Yes everything is fine but I dont know if it is only mine mobile but the buttons on the right side are not working well.. I need to push them realy hard sometimes if I want to use them.. I love Lenovo by itself (I dont use any other tech like apple or idk) but this vibe x3 is a disapointment and yes it is only because of those stupid buttons but if you had to fight with them everyday for 2-3 times or more you would understand... Anyway I wont change Lenovo for anything else and I hope this was just my (un)luck on this certain mobile...
And yeap... Mobile is clean and there is no way something is stuck there because it is all the time in the case... The mobile is the same as I bought it..
ahmed, 25 May 2016Same problem i am facing, i bought last wednesday,i think phone is of metal body so it is heating .Do not keep your device as a worry around you, get a replacement at once as this phone has no heating issue even on high end use. Same happened with me...
Have patience till you get new one.
