It's been almost a year since i bought this phone. I had a struggle at first with the os 6.0 but after a ROM flash (several attempt) with the 5.1 I'm happy now. This phone is simply impressive. Communication quality is impressive, I'm not a picture pro but picture are great. i recently bought a boat and plan to use a tablet as a GPS. none of the tablet i found work as well as my phone. GSP (only) is fast and it has a compass. For the price, i did a great deal. Only con I tried to buy another one but this phone is rare now and price has gone up. Hope Lenovo will keep producing this one.

I have problem with network I have new phine and the network always disabled although it is recognised
Am using the phone since last 75 days, once a headphone is connected the volume starts to swing from high to low and to vibrate only and camera keeps shooting pictures, without any interference. In the mornings one may see many pictures of table or ceiling in gallery.
Battery life is fairly good.

I've been using the vibe shot for a couple weeks. I'll list the pros and cons.
Phone functions work well. Sound is clear. Even has a recorder. Reception is good too.
Camera is really good. Specially for the price. Its very versatile and allows you to customize stuff like focus, exposure,shutter time, ISO sensitivity.
Performance is good. No lag so far. 3gb RAM totally helps.
Very good display.
Dual sims function well.
[if bought from China] Came with a lot of garbage apps and without play store and google apps. Had to flash the international rom with google apps. So if you are not technically good with phones maybe this isn't the one for you. You can always get someone to do it for you though.
Music quality is sub par (specially with the supplied) Lenovo headphones. If you listen to music a lot you will notice this. This is a subjective opinion. I have been spoiled by excellent sound quality from some Sony and Samsung handsets I've used before. Also I listen to music on my laptop a lot. That being said the sound quality should be alright for the average person (that doesn't use the phone that much for music).
No LED notifications. The light only turns on for charging. I don't think its wired for notifications.
This is very frustrating as you have to always turn on the screen to see whether you missed any calls/messages etc.
Seems like not a lot of people use this phone. And I suspect the Lenovo won't bother to support/update it properly. And if you have an issue you'll have a hard time googling.
At first noticed heating issues. However it went away after flashing another ROM.
I've installed viber whatsapp and messenger. (Not Facebook app) Also I have enabled twitter and gmail. All these apps are working and I've enabled H+. The phone lasts through the day alright. You can expect around 4 hours of screen time. Might even get better performance if you played around with the battery saving features.
Charging time is around 2 and half hours.
I can live with the sub par music quality. Specially as it takes really good pictures for this price.
That being said, the only major problem I have with this is that it doesn't have the notification LED. I rely on it a lot. On my previous phone I have programmed it to different colors for different notifications. I can take one look at the phone and know I have a missed call or missed whatsapp message.
If anyone has questions just reply.
