Re: Lenovo S920- Recent upgrade to KitKat 4.4 crashes phone after installation

I would like to tell you all about my experience with lenovo s920. After a month of using it i got a software update from lenovo. After updating the unit just kept restarting. Sent the unit to lenovo service center and after a full month they couldn't repair it and sent me a new unit. After upgrading the new unit to android 4.4.2 the phone seemed sluggish, kept getting hot when i tried to do simple things like playing music or just turning on the screen for some time. Factory reset and clearing the cache did not help. After a month of using the phone when i tried to place a call the phone gave me a message "cannot place call". I tried to reboot the phone thinking it was just a software issue and now it is just stuck on the lenovo powered by android logo. Now if i send the phone to repair they are just gonna say that there is nothing they can do about it and i doubt they will give me a new one. I have had nothing but problems from lenovo. Will never be buying another lenovo in my life and will tell others to do the same. I have attached 3 pics below.

1. Stuck logo when normal boot: Image

 

2. Restarting and pressing power button + volume up: Image

 

3. Restarting and pressing power + volume down: Image

You can still flash your ROM back to Android Jelly Bean 4.2. That's what I did as I also faced a lot of issues with the Kitkat upgrade (camera, sim card not detected, and several error messages popping up indefinitely)

 

So there, I flashed back to Jelly Bean 4.2. I dont think Lenovo s920 is ready for this Kitkat upgrade.

^^ I'd steer clear from Kitkat 4.4, at least now anyway. I dont think S920 is ready for this Kitkat upgrade as it caused one too many issues when I attempted to upgrade my phone. I ended up flashing the ROM back to Jelly Bean 4.2.1 as I couldn't fix those issues.

I am still in kit kat version only,I have not flashed back to jelly bean.I am just waiting for the next firmware upgrade,hoping that atleast  camera problem would be resolved in the next upgrade,but i dont no exactly when the upgrade will come.To those who are not upgraded to kitkat,I suggest not to upgrade to kitkat as there are too many problems with kitkat version for S920.
