Is Android 8 issues fixed in Lenovo k8 plus devices?

2019-06-21, 3:18 AM

I have got a Lenovo k8 plus phone with Android 7. I saw a notification that I can upgrade this to Android 8 but after a bit of researching I found that Android 8 update is all messed up and buggy with lot of issues like reduced performance, overheating, high cpu usage, random reboots etc. I wanted to know if all the issues are solved since someone told it was being investigated, I do not want to update without knowing it's current state. Thank you and sorry to bother.

NO, nothing is fixed yet. And all other Lenovo phone users including me have already given up. Do not upgrade to Android 8 because there will be no way to downgrade once upgraded.
Android 7 is working fine with that phone.

Hey,

 

I am running Android 8 and I dont have any bugs other than reduced performance and slightly less heating than Android 7. I think Lenovo must have tweaked performance to reduce heating. 

About custom rom, I have tried few rom but not very good for everyday use. Doesnt support volte, HDR is a mess, Music key is not mapped, Few apps wont work, issue with whatsapp calling so and so....:smileymad:

Regards,
Amal

I've heard and read about them, I'm just finding a way to get vulkan on my phone since it is the only way I can get major performance increase in emulations. Lenovo does gives good spec for price but their support is horrible. Sell and forget.

By the way, how much of performance decrease do you have? Does it affect performance of functionality or/and games? How much of overheat do you face?
