No. Problem is not built in email client. Problem is that SIM cards are not
detcted in kitkat 4.4.2 doesn't work after storage encryption enforced by
exchange server. This encryption will always be enforced , no matter what
email client is used.

Re: Lenovo P780 Kitkat 4.4.2 upgrade: Post problems and changes

2014-08-09, 14:48 PM

My screen has all of a sudden become become dark & when brightness increased, it is showing the previous screen in the back ground... The screen is flickering like a tubelight.

The screen looks like when you see a normal screen from the side of any fone due to viewing angle so I now have to keep my screen brightness to the max.... hence draining battery. It works for no more then 20 to 21hrs.

 

Please help if u know what this could be?

I have even tried the solutions listed in others topics, but doesnt work.

 

Till now I have removed the sims, Sd card, factory reset the fone, pressed the red button near the SD card, powered the fone for off for 8 hrs, still no getting bac to normal screen resolution! This happened 2 days after upgrading to kitkat & downloading Game Asaplt7 and playing it for 15 min. There after, stopped playing and was chatting on whatsapp for less than 10min and the whatsapp screen froze on the screen in the background . Hence even after factory reset i can see the same whatsapp screen image lightly in the background & the display with a very low resolution.......

Everything including the LENOVO logo at startup is distorted.

 

 

Numerous other issues as well.

 

Fone details: P780 Purchased on: 9/7/2014 (4 weeks old)

Firmware: kitkat- P780_ROW-8G_S221_140729

172mb patch also updated....

I was so proud and happy to have this phone about 7 months ago. now I'm not happy with this 4.4.2 upgrade, everything becomes slow. everything takes at least 1-5 seconds longer then before to start up.

This phone now makes me always busy looking for other alternative way to restore it back to previous version, and this is very annoying that every time when I hold the phone I'm thinking of fixing it. and I started to hate this phone now.

Lenovo, can you please re-release the last working version while your team are fixing the current upgrade? I think 'P780_8G_ROW_S124_140403' was the last working version on my phone.

Please push it through as soon as possible. If you still want some feedbacks from users to improve the kitkat, maybe you can give option to use old/new version.

Since the upgrade, I've tried to reset to factory settings several times just because it's too slow, but that didn't fix the problem.

And everyday I'm thinking to change the phone.
Please do something.

You will find the calibration icon when you plug-in your AC charger during charging.

Hello Lenevo Support,

 

There are major BUGS in the update, I hope you have  a big list for the issues .

 

Most of the things are not working and making the phone unusable.

 

One More Major Issue:

 

Wi-fi can not be switched ON  permanentky.

 

Even if you select WLAN-->Advanced> KEEP WLAN on duriing SLEEP,you choose anyt option like (Always, Smart, Only Plugged IN).

 

The WLAN is always turned OFF when you close the screen.

 

This is really a terrable update without doing more testing.

 

Can you please re push the Jelly Bean OS to all the devices so atleast we can use the handset.

 

 

Really as Horrible support !!!!
