Hello there,

 

We are preparing an another OTA for P780. 

 

In this OTA, we will have better battery staus, better performance and a few UI cosmetic fix. 

 

I can not provide an exact date, but I promise it will come out as soon as possible. 

 

Regard famous battery drain issue, we found that customers might install some bad apps which hold the wakelock and keep firing alarm to block system to run into power saving mode. If without "dirt" apps, from my perosnal using, I can charge my P780 only twice to affort a week smoothly using including calls and web browser, in order to get better performance on battery, you need to disable Wifi and data connection when you will go to bed in the nightime. Also location service should be disabled when you are NOT using GPS, some apps might force to use the GPS as possible as they can, it also drains much current. Those dirt apps even include "facebook", and you can not even kill it because it will automatically restarts by itself. 

In next phase, we will try to add a new feature to give end user better battery performance, it includes disabling auto restarting, initially notify user when apps consumes much current drain and so on.

We promise we will keep improving the battery shape. 

 

Regard performance issue, we tuned the ram configuration from system level, to make sure the system can work smoothly. Please don't judge the performance according to the free ram size only but from your personal use experience, though they might be related. please post issues specificly the use cases you are running with slag. 

We promise we will keep improving the performance as well. 

 

Regard audio quality issue, we add a few more change to give better audio quality. 

 

Regard SIM and network issues, we have contacted end user sepearately through emails, most of our customers have been corrected with the proper tuning data, if you still see problems, please reply this post, and I will receive the email notification. Or you can send email to me directly wangwang1@lenovo.com. 

 

Please post issues mainly on website so that many others can see this going on, And we have dedicated people collecting all the issues from website and distribute internally. So please take website post as the primary issue report method, please do plus your current Software/Firmware Version with your issues. 

 

Thanks and Have a good day

Wang

Dear Mr Wang,

1. i have been using same apps as before, still after the kit kat update my phone's battery doesn't last as long it used to in jelly bean. (so i don't get the dirt app argument.. gps settings and every other setting is same as before.. the only change is kitkat update)

2. Power manager shows that around 50% battery is used by RADIO under hardaware, and second largest battery consumer is INCALLUI.
(and i don't use radio at all)
(VOICE CALLS under hardware shows 7.5% battery consumption but INCALLUI under software shows 54% battery consumption. Is this normal ?)

3. i haven't flashed my phone ever.. only installed the OTA updates by lenovo. (as it was told that radio issue due to flashing phone)

Thanking You.
Nitish Raajpal

Planning to update to S226 in a few days.

Why don't lenovo gives us pure android experience without any blotwares,
just like what motorola did with moto series.

No custom launcher, no blotwares, just a pure android ..

Dear wang,

Updated to s226 mostly no changes noticed..small changes in fonts..think phone has speed up a little..still battery performance is not good.

I replaced my display and say bye to dead pixels..and also inserted new battery..but still no need..battery drains faster..so confirmed no probs with old battery and its with kitkat..now with one single sim in 2g mode..mostly internet connected..it last 1 and half day..i doubt that the wifi signal strength of phone is very weak compared to ma old galaxy grand..dont know weather its s/w or .h/w issue

Updated to the latest S226 but cant see any major change. 

 

Did first thing is charged the battery in "battery caliberation" mode but battery caliberation failed again and no success. What are you guys doing, you cant even fix your own product feature of battery caliberation!!! So pathetic. 

 

UI seemed smotthend and fast. No lags. Audio quality seems better than earlier. Not sure unless people tell how its coming at others end when talking. 

 

Battery is is slightly better with working 2 days but still NOT like earlier times as was with JB. 

 

A pure android experience like with Motorolla did with Moto-G would be highly dersired as has been expressed by another user in this post somehere. 

 

Lenovo has taken over big mobile company and yet to sync the mobile phones to compete the phone in the market. Guys pull up work socks and offer better performing phones and supporting softwares. 

 

This was a really good phone but post kitkat update it has gone awry and anyone would think hundred times before byuing any Lenovo further. 

 

My next phone is Redmi or M3 that I am buying as have lost hope with Lenovo esp after the P780 update and dismal battery performance. the very log life batter of 4000mah USP has been lost by Lenovo is what i have concluded. 

 

Sorry for saying so but thats wht we have bought this phone for wiht other industry standard feature expectations.
