Lenovo Vibe X3 bugs

2016-04-15, 3:46 AM

I really like this phone. Mine is the x3a40 model. The software is a little buggy but what a lot of hardware for the money.

 

Anyway, here are a list of bugs I have found.

 

1. Double tap to unlock: Double tapping sometimes does not work.

2. Security issue: Facial recognition unlock method causes phone to unlock even with NO USER facing the phone. That is, the phone bypasses the pin/pattern lock screen without any facial recognition taking place.

3. Media sound muting: Power button -> Sound off, does not mute Media/Game sounds.

4. Fingerprint scanner: Use of camera from lock screen and afterwards relocking the screen causes fingerprint scanner to stop working. Restart of phone is required to reset the fingerprint scanner functionality.

5. Contacts search: As some others have pointed out the contacts list name search feature malfunctions when no match is found.

 

Not a bug:

WLAN kept disconnecting on me when phone was left alone for some time/sleeps. This is actually a setting under WLAN. To fix go to WLAN -> Advanced -> Keep WLAN on during sleep. Change to 'Always'.

 

I will keep updating this list as we go along.

 

In the mean time Lenovo please provide us with the necessary updates to address these problems posthaste.

 

 

But overall, thanks Lenovo for making such a great phone.

Lenovo Vibe X3 bugs

2016-04-14, 18:23 PM

First issue u feel or notice while unboxing is ironbox issue not heating it can be used as a tawa that much heate it producing while using itself so think how it will heat while charging.

U can't hold the phone in single hand even if you r too big u can't hold in single hand
0.To be short lenovo mobiles are the combination of all bugs of all mobiles phones in market till today
1. Dolby Atmos stopped working suddenly and it will work again if you restart your phone.
2. I think the Hi-Fi is only on the paper because there is no difference when you on or off while listening audio via headphone.
3. There is no stock music player for the best music quality and not a fm player app.
4. The finger print scanner is also have bugs sometimes stop working but very rarely.
5.No fast charging because it takes nearly 3:40min in both lenovo charger and 2.0. Battery backup is not as good as having 3500 mah battery so need to be good optimization.
6. Front Camera is not performing well and rear camera is almost 5mp worth only better lonovo have to add ois in software side

This review was not written in any person angry on lenovo this is a true review how a dissatisfied buyer will react in real

I guess all this are software bugs hardware are OK let me see few more days n say

I bought this device in first week of April and I didn't get any update may be it was pre-installed .

 

I am also facing this finger print scanner option with camera opening from lock screen. However it works if you have registered only one fingerprint, I don't know what is this bug.

New bug: When using the 'flip' move to lock the screen the phone sometimes does not vibrate. Normally a short vibrate is produced. The problem seems to appear randomly.

Cool new feature: with headphones and Dolby Sound the sound is poor than when Dolby is off. Peeeerfect, excellent, smooth... Don't you get tired to **bleep** up so many phones? If you don't have good IT specialists, just hire a company to create it for you!!!!!!

And you can delete the Hi-fi option with Marshmallow - it doesn't work anyway!

NEW BUG: Smart Brightness.

 

On one occasion Smart Brightness would not disable after going from outdoor to indoor environment. Screen remained very bright and unresponsive to change despite adjusting brightness control and toggling auto-brightness. Problem was resolved by restarting.

NEW BUG (VERY SERIOUS):

 

Lenovo's contact app has progressively been getting slower and does not display information sometimes.

 

Remedy - restart the phone or reopen app.

 

Reload times are far too long.

 

Please fix!
