guys....i am having a terrible time with Lenovo and its phone K920.After two months the back speaker failed..deposited at Lenovo service centre for replacement of speaker..got the phone back after 10 days.Speaker failed again after 2 days.again deposited at Lenovo service centre ...for motherboard replacement..Got it back after 10 days after numerous calls to lenovo and many mails...However this time the screen has developed a defect on the right side near the margin...probably due to improper replacement of motherboard.Guys...buy this phone at your risk...if it developa a fault...God help you...
jignesh, 07 Feb 2015Apart from heating issue ,another big issue is signal reception. I have compared five mobiles ... moreIt's true jignesh...Even I have observed the weak signal strength compare to other mobiles with the same provider at my residence.Hope new SW update will resolve the issue.
The CPU-Z app shows that my battery for Lenovo Vibe Z2 Pro is 1000mAh. Whereas the spec shows that the battery for Lenovo Vibe Z2 Pro is 4000mAh. Can any one clarify on this ?
sashank, 15 Feb 2015I can make out of your review that you're not a fond gamer, But thre are many reviews on this ... moreIf u do moderate calls and messaging and watsapp, then you can go for this model.
If you are a hardcore gamer like you said then both these phones, Lenovo Vibe Z2 pro and One PlusOne, will heat up immensely. That is true to some extent for the Note 4 also.
I used the Note 4 for a couple of days. But it FEELS less heat coz of the plastic body.
The only difference is that the Lenovo cools off the fastest coz of the metal body than the other two mentioned mobiles above. It also FEELS the hottest among them.
Let me make one thing very clear to you by my experience of using those phones including the new Iphones. If you play heavy games, all these mobiles get really hot. No doubt about that.
The only thing you need to decide is which mobile do you like. So that even after buying it you wont have to think that you made a wrong decision.
Thats it to you the clearest explanation anyone could give till now unless who has used those other mobiles also extensively.
I can make out of your review that you're not a fond gamer, But thre are many reviews on this portal and others stating that this phone tends to get heated up even when performing basic task.
I am planning to buy a smartphone by the end of this month, and my first option was Vibe Z2 Pro, but this heating is an big issue to be taken under consideration, so please tell me, if you have any games in this phone, play a little while, and tell me, if it is getting heated up, Oneplus One is another phone, with popular name, also tend to get heated up, around 43°C, but it is bearable. So it can be considered to buy.
But i always wanted this phone, as it has almost eberything i want from a smartphone at a reasonable price.
But i don't want to deal with issues, even after cashing in 32,999 INR!
Heating is a major issue for me, if it comes to unbearable mode, not even good for the internal hardware. I am a moderate gamer, i can play a game upto 1-2 hours, in its early days of installation, and then about 30 mins-1 hour approx. After one month or two. I use moderate camera, more for clicking pics, less of watsapp, moderate calling 2G only, moderate msging.
can you tell me, anyone! how much does your vibe z2 pro heats, up! is it bearable or not!!
because i have just heard that oneplus one also tends up to heat! upto 43.5 degree celsius!
does lenovo heats up more??? coz geeky ranjit, told it was bearable! to handle 43 in hand
First thing it is to be very much noted this product is value for the money where you can do date to day official work.
By seeing different users opinion pertraining to heating problem I don't feel so ,since I am using past 1 & half month,because other users are keeping more brightness level & also playing video games in open sunlight areas. But if you use in shadow area instead of sunlight area you need more brightness level.
Above all I have not faced any heating or phone hanging problems in this product since it is working pretty well compared to other products,one main thing to be noticed it is dual sim which no other 4G phone manufacture is providing may be low end brands,at the same time a product like this which has built sturdier with metal body,high end camera on both side,3GB ram,32GB inbuilt memory& also GPRS WITH GLONAS WHERE I AM USING DAILY.
At the same time if you see the battery back up I am able to run 1 & 1/2 day by listening to music,web chatng,what's up,camera usage. But if you record or view video in 4K or 2K mode battery drops because of bigger 6" viewing area. Other than the above issue I really praise this product for it's worthiness while seeing other products cost & futures .
I personally accept & say this product can be considered for middle class & also I have LENOVO P780 PAST ONE YEAR, EVEN NOW I am USING WITH VERY GOOD PERFORMANCE & ALSO very good SERVICE BACK UP FOR SOFTWARE UPDATION ISSUE.The service provided by authorised service center ie TOUCH MOB in BANGALORE is very good. Audio quality in both the phones are really good.
I have this phone for about 1 month plus. Have noticed there's a weird problem initially like it will overheating by itself or hangs sometime. Last week I decided to do the factory reset and all of these problems gone. So remember to do factory reset before use otherwise it will gives you a lot of problem even with whatever updates.

heats up like oven, you cannot be serious, :O ... plz tell me you're joking
sashank, 05 Feb 2015Look for Lenovo Update Matrix, online, there you will three top phones getting Android Lollipo... moreSashank if you need a dual sim phone with current high specs, then this is the mobile to go for.
Build is rock solid. Dropped twice from a height of 3 feet. didnt break by god's grace.
Performance so far is good. No lags in any daily activity.
Lot of bloatware though.
Camera is the real stunner. Surprised at the quality and its features.
Gaming is pure bliss. no lags in any high end game. U name it.
Last but not the least, even after 4 updates my mobile heats up like an oven while playing any game.
Sad but true. Hell it heats up a little even while using Whatsapp for 10 mins.
Whatever you do, you cant escape the heating issue.
All those people saying that heating is not an issue are either less or moderate users.(no offense to anyone pls).
Heavy use will result in heating up of the device. No escape from that.
Hope this helps you to decide.
Rate it! :)

Regarding the battery drain & overheat problems.. are these happened after Android system update? Or happened just "out of the box" without system update?
