lenovo Vibe K5 Note Battery drain and GPS issue

2016-09-01, 20:01 PM

Hi All ,

 

I have got my K5 note 5 days back , I am in love with the device already I really dont want to give it back unless it is faulty by hardware .

I will like to know how many are facing this issue.

 

First thing first my GPS acurracy has a auto transport ability even in the open space and in still position it jumps like a drunk monkey and when ever i rotatet the device the direction of the map doesnt change like it is always pointing to one direction irepetive of my movement.

 

Second thing my battery started acting weird two days back, I kept it for charging after 3 hours it is still 80 % and drianed very fast in usage . Later on i am able to charge it to 100% but back up is only 16-17hrs standby and 4-5hrs screen time.

 

I will like to know if this is the scenerio for all of you .

I am on 4g network and Lenova stock apps not installed any app.

Dear Mr. Hussain,

 

True, the location dot on Google maps app is not showing me (read: us) the direction of where we facing as sweet as in the iphone's. Though the compass is able to do it quite nicely! Cosmetics...

 

Also the battery loading takes quite a while with me too. And I guess the learning curve for guessing the correct percentage ℅ is quite high. But it is normal as I had quite a few devices in my life that showed the same behaviour (other then android).

 

I suspect the longer you load and unload the more accurate the ℅ will become. I am now a few weeks further and it did change for me! Only the last 2% take a quite bit longer. (I personalty not really mind)

 

About being drunk, that's not a good thing!  The location on my map is quite stable but surely it takes a bit for the system to pinpoint. I am sure if you are in urban area's it be more quick to pinpoint and stay where it should be.

 

Furthermore in the route 66 app (which I not like myself) the direction of your phone IS implemented quite nice.

 

I hope this helps a bit, maybe I forgot something. Again your phone behaves like mine I guess. Vibe K5 note

 

P.s. the more wifi hotspots and 2g 3g 4g there are in the neighbourhood the quicker it will find your exact position.

 

The pure GPS part is a bit slower. This is normal as a device needs to find GPS satellites first. This is quite well shown in the gps DIAGNOSTICS of the LENOVO COMPANION app. You will find the same with almost any consumer grade GPS device.

I am facing the same what you have observed.

 

There is some problem with GPS. I have used Moto G for GPS ( google maps) past extensively. Lenovo K5 Note has some real problem with hardware.. the needle jumps like a monkey even if you hold the mobile riding on a motor cycle. I think its cheap hardware used to compensate for lower cost of mobile phone.

Its been around 2 weeks since i started using Lenovo vibe K5 note, I noticed a serious problems with the GPS, the blue dot on the google maps jumps from one location to the other. GPS does not show accurate and stable position. GPS is a basic need and if that itself is failure, just cant use this product any more. I have tested with couple of other phones which shows stable and accurate location. It looks like serious problem with GPS hardware itself.

I am facing the same issue. I never expected this issue from Lenovo.

I tried reset the device and reinstalling and tried with multiple Google Map version.

 

The GPS green point is jumping like monkey while using the GPS navigation and and keep on rerouting the route.

We cannot use the GPS with Map at all.

I bought a Lenovo K5 Vibe recently and facing the same issue. Overall the phone is great and the sound is out of the world, but the battery issue is really something to be worried about.

The GPS tracker is inaccurate and unacceptable. It jumps like a monkey.
I used to love lenovo. But guess it's just the Chinese selling cheap **bleep** to this whole world.
Although xiaomi is far better.
