Good Price. Nice design. Poor GPS accuracy.
By Walter Zobernig | 20 May 2016
I have this phone. Took it at a very reasonable price of about 236 USD from my romanian phone carrier. I am happy with this phone. It looks nice, has a good display and performs good. There are however 3 issues that I would like to mention, 1 of them major. Eventhough the phone has a battery of 2700 mAh it does seem to drain quite fast. A small or medium Powerbank and a car charger are absolutely necessary to get properly through the day. The phone also gets very hot. Hopefully the heating issue will not have any long term consequences. The biggest downside that I found however is the poor GPS accuracy. The lacking accuracy of the GPS takes GPS navigation to the limit of being useable. You drive along and suddenly the GPS snaps to a road several dozen meters away. Navigating to your location in a dense neighbourhood can get tricky as the GPS jumps around like crazy and keeps snapping to roads you are not in. I never had this issue with any other phone. I hope Lenovo is aware of this problem and provides an update as soon as possible!!
