Hi i just received my z5 and its a really nice phone but firmware is really weird and buggy. Right now i have IZ version 3.9.200 ST Android 8.1
is there any other firmware available out there?? And i dint see any place in the settings to check for Firmware Updates. Also i cant use a large wallpaper to be able to see the picture extended on both side when going to the right or left home screens. For exemple, when i choose a 1920 x 1080 wallpaper the screen just turn to an awfull blue or grey background. When i plug in my PC many times it doesnt detect it and many apps wasnt working anymore, they crash the minutes you open them and the battery seems to go down really fast
If there is an other Firmware available that fix some of those issue and many more, even if its android 7.x.x until a better updated firmware comes out i would be really happy. The phone just came out, its normal that it has a few issues that need to be fix and im pretty sure and hope that many updates will come out in the next weeks. I just hope they dont do like Umidigi did whit his Umidigy Crystal 4/64gb, they did 2 or 3 updates then nothing and the phone has still so many issues, its really not fair.
But i really like the z5 its a really nice phone and its really fast, i cant wait for updates that will make this phone even better.

Today when i leave home i wanted to connect my Z5 to my car bluetooth for the first time and it does connect for a few second but i dont have message option like before and cant use it at all. On the screen i can see that is connected and 3-5 seconds after its disconnected, then reconnect and disconnected again and keep doing this all the time and i cant use it I have a BMW 535 2011 if someone know a few tricks who fix that

Same issues same lenovo version i've enabled developer tools and find an option of automatic updates and it's by default on, the issues i have with my z5 are : same with the wallpaper, can't record screen, can't get messages notifications it's like the services are killed i always have to let the apps open on the background and if so there's no blink light indicates u got a new message u always have to unlock the phone and check, on the storage menu free up space does nothing.
If there will be an update that would fix all those things for us that would be apreciated thank you.

Can anyone in particular Lenovo Support help me on this issue.......
I recently purchased a Lenova Z5 mobile phone in good faith on the internet. The phone arrived from China and was ROOTED.
I had no idea this would happen. I can therefore not update my phone and get the message g.co/GBH when I reeboot.
I am obviously no happy with this. Is there anything I can do or have I just wasted £200 on a Lenovo phone.

I have the exact same issue with corrupt rom when boot-up.
Other problems I really hate:
- bad connection with bluetooth in my car!!
- AR portrait in camera says i have not enough free space but i haven't used any space yet.
- Some apps are not listed in google Play (for example: Netflix)
Overall i also spend €200,- to get this phone, but it is not worth it at all.
I hope this is a firmware problem. Waiting for some good tips here.
