Lenovo A5000 Lolipop problems

After updating yesterday to Lolipop I am very sad why I didnt check this forum first. My phone acts terrible now, from excelent phone with KitKat turned into phone that I have wish not to use  anymore...

Problems are next:

 

- phone is heating so much even in basic operations

- heat when phone is charging is very high (phone and charger)

- lagy and stucking in many applications

- weather application is gone

- app for cleaning memory is gone too

- battery draining is huge (this is one of biggest problems)

- wifi icon is always on it doesnt matter if wifi is on or off

 

Why you didn't test it before releasing this I really dont know. If you cant fix this problems what I see that are mostly same for A6000 too give us some rollback update to choose to install KitKaT again.

The camera resolution is ok, you need to change the aspect ration from 16:9 to 4:3.

I've installed CM Security to replace Security app, and for the battery disabled MTKlogger.

Standby time is ok, but screen time is lower.

and the new feature "waking the phone with volume rockers" is not working.

Re: Lenovo A5000 Lolipop problems

After update I had few problems. 

 

- missing weather application

- missing security appication

- missing speed dial for 9 prefered numbers

- missing option to choose home screen

- missing continuous rolling screen option

 

I would say that graphic is poor in comparison to KitKat.

Notification bar is not helpfull as in KitKat.

 

Can you guide me how to downgrade back to KitKat?

Re: Lenovo A5000 Lolipop problems

Im not satisfied with this lollipop update in my Lenovo A5000. Some important features are lost. And 6mp its must be 8mp. For godsake lenovo. Fix this. Please. I think lenovo wasn't prepared or didn't test this update. My phone get more slow and it lagged often times now, especially when I'm using the internet. Security app was not there too. It was a good app. Kitkat version is still the best and efficient version for lenovo a5000. Hope you'll fix this as soon as possible. Battery life is not that good also. It's fast draining. You can also visit (http://www.gsmarena.com/lenovo_a5000-reviews-7167.php) reviews of phone users are there. I'm hoping for a good new update. Thanks.

Re: Lenovo A5000 Lolipop problems

we are all a bunch of unhappy people after the lollipop upgrading thing.

i am on an A5000 and i know people on an A6000 and we are not happy.

 

have some respect towards us please!

fix it...or at least tell us how a rollback can be done! 

You should know how much this is actually tarnishing your brand! 

 

And dont give us a timeplan; you havent updated your android update matrix on this site and lollipop came out but you still have it as 'to be announced' for the A5000 series.

 

i know i am NOT alone in this!
