  •  Using this Lenovo P780 phone for last 80 days 09 May 2014

    4/5 stars

    By nitin shrivastava

    Okay, so i am using this Lenovo P780 phone for last 80 days and was waiting until now to post my hands on review. I bought this phone from Ebay at 16800/-. its a 4GB version and i am damn happy with this phone..there is no network issue that i have faced, very good Display, it does support OTG and transfer speed is very fast, WiFi direct support (you should install app "Software data cable" to best use of WiFi direct feature). Dual Sim only 1st Sim 3G..Very less internal memory (1.3 GB)to install Apps but you can move or install apps to External memory card however i think that has been increased in new 8 GB versions...Lenovo UI is one of the best UI i have used in any Android Phone and you can modify as you want..no need for me to say about battery, that is the best feature of this Phone..Phone does have option to Enable Push Message but it does not work so you wont receive data use or balance message after call.(one user suggested to use app "USSD to Notification" to resolve this issue and will do and post ). Display is good but its very reflecting in direct sun light so you will Die multiple times in subway surfer game if you play it on Open in day :b ...Sound quality is damn good on Speakers and also on earphones.. Looks and feel of this phone is better then any other phone available in market till the range of 28000....this phone easily worth of between 23000 to 25000...but in 17000 you are getting more then you can bargain for..Simply just go for it and you will not regret your decision..best of luck..Nitin

    By Vikram Thakur Singh

    Lenovo p780: It’s been a while since Lenovo entered in mobile and tablet market segment. and it has released some of the good phones like Lenovo k900, lenovo p780. Lenovo p780 an quardcore of mediatek cortex A7 mtk6589 1.2ghz coupled with power vr sgx544 gpu.Lenovo p780 got 1gb ram, 5 inch display with 294 ppi (pixels per inch) with otg (on the go) , 8mp camera with LED, 4000mah non-removable battery my suggestion is not to buy 4gb one instead go for 8gb one DISPLAY:As mentioned above this is an 5"phone with 720p IPS LCD captive touchscreen screen in a world of HD screens, display is quite a bit reflective but its ok and you don't face much of a problem operating mobile under sunlight, display brightness is good not too low nor too bright CAMERA:when coming to camera front this holds 8mp camera with an LED flash camera settings are been divided into basic, advance and others. The photos taken in the day time are good for what you pay, photos taken in the night time are quite a bit grainy but it’s ok. we can add various lens effects, magic effects, color effects etc there are also different modes of shooting like burst mode, night portrait, HDR, panorama, low light, micro etc.overall when coming to camera front camera quality is good you get what you pay for HARDWARE:when coming to the hardware front Lenovo P780 has got quite decent hardware with quardcore processor of cortex A7 of mediatek mtk6589 of 1.2ghz coupled with an power vr sgv544 gpu of 234~mhz.when we compare Lenovo p780 of about 16000/- PERFORMANCE:Lenovo p780 got mediatek mtk6589 1.2ghz quardcore processor coupled with powervr sgx544 gpu. Jumping from one app to other app was never been a problem, phone was never been sluggish operates quite good (a lot better than Samsung s duos which I had before) and when taking pictures in burst mode of Lenovo p780 photos were taken very quickly GAMING:when coming to gaming front Lenovo p780 is powered with powervr sgx544 gpu, I have played so many games in this phone like real racing 3,modern combat 4,rayman,subway surfer, temple run oz ,temple run 2..etcthis phone has never given me much of a problem when coming to gaming front (It used to take a while to load the games but after loading there was no problem) and I think the one who loves to play games with huge battery back up can go for Lenovo p780 without any doubt BATTERY BACKUP:Lenovo p780 is powered with 4000mah battery which is really great this phone runs easily up to two days with 5hrs to 6hrs of gaming, web browsing of abt 6hrs to 7hrs, few calls, watching few videos, taking few photos and videos and still you got your phone alive on the next day CONCLUSION:this midrange is a phone with great battery back up coupled with decent hardware , there is no doubt that if you want a phone which can play decent games, take decent photos, coupled with a great battery back up and few different features.cons:battery tends to decrese with time,runs on 4.2,pros:decent hardware,back up

  •  Disappointed 30 May 2015

    2/5 stars

    By Ramit Rajvanshi

    I bounght my Lenovo P 780 last year in March. This year in April I stared having issues. Very dissatisfied. My phone had a problem of low mobile signals, started in Jan 2015 and in April it started getting switched offf by itself. One day got off and was not getting switched on. Took the phone to service center and was told that they can not do anything accept changing the motherboard, which is 70 to 80% cost of the phone hence buy a new phone. As the mobile is out of warrenty by just one month. I mean is this why I trusted Lenovo and purchased the phone. Lenovo should be able to rectify the issue, there could be some minimal cost.
