Re: Ideaphone P780 and Android 4.4 Kit Kat

Hi I was able to install KitKat 4.4.2 and my phone functions well.  However, as others have noted the icons are not sorted alphabetically and the power consumption is awful.

 

Can anybody tell me where to get the original OS and how to install it.  I hate this OS. I hope you guys can help.

 

Thanks.

Hi everyone,

Sharing my experience.

I got the update (722mb) on 27 July and updated after reading few comments here as few people had updated with one person posted that he faced no issues.

I had backed all my stuff on my Strontium 32gb SD card but it went corrupt and i couldnt get back anything especially the contacts. Later i got a replacement from Strontium with new SD card and thats working fine now. As Sanjay says, do please take a cloud based backup or transfer ur SD card backup on your computer or laptops and then you are safe in case of any thing going wrong.

It was a clean install and all things updated perfectly and no issues faced either. Camera also worked perfectly.

Battery started draining as compared to my earlier battery life for 2 to 3 days. With this update it went out in very first day itself.

Then on 29 July i got another update (172mb ) and installed that too. Worked perfectly.

Battery improved slightly. I used battery Calibration twice and after reaching 100% it said that batter Calibration successful but got another pop saying that "batter not calibrated." Which message to believe, dont know. Today will check what battery life do i get now post the batter caliberation attempts.

People on the other side are complaining about low voice reception and often say that I am not audible, so I have to be loud and that's annoying.

Overall the previous version of Android from Lenovo was more stable as compared to this kikat version.

Lenovo has not worked extensively to give a better experience. If I compare Lenovo to Samsung interface, Samsung UI is far better and more user friendly.

Also, a point to note that in Google Play Music, there is no option to select multiple music files and delete them in one go. It will be highly convenient to listen and select multiple music files and delete them in one go that will help to sort the music folder.

Rest is working fine for me as have not tried much as not too much of experimental guys with launchers or alike, but overall things are working fine.

Just i see that i am facing some issues, like during two calls, one hangs for long before disconnecting. Also, when during a call when i try to navigate to a contact, it dials the number automatically and the firt call goes on hold.

If i face any issues or anything worth notifying, I'll update my post.

Bets regards,

Alok

As someone above said, turn off your google location settings.  When I turned mine off, my phone battery life is back to its regular life. 

 

As to the camera, well, I think it got worst.  As to memory usage, KitKat is more memory hungry than jelly bean.

 

How I wish someone can tell me where I can get the jelly bean software and how to install it.
