    Do not buy Lenovo a269i, mine is 4 months by now, yet it always lag and hang. The camera is pathetic. The RAM is very small.

  • abhi_bangal

    I am sure Lenovo will increase the competition in the Indian smartphone market. They have two budget phones out of these four.

  • Lenovo…

    Seriously, I too bought Levono last month and I can tell you..the quality of the phone is pathetic…Camera sucks and it hangs every now and then, when u r playing games….Please do not buy this product…

  • Lokesh Shukla

    Lenovo is a chinese product..boycott this product and buy indian products or wait for better products from alternate companies.

  • hmmmm

    I purchased a
    Lenovo smart phone in April, 2013.
    Within 2 months of the purchase the mobile phone developed defect and well
    within the warranty period of 1 year. Its screen started getting blurred to
    dead black. The mobile phone was deposited at Delhi service centre (just one
    service centre in whole of Delhi NCR working strictly as per govt timings ,, 10
    to 5, mon to sat) for repair on June2013 which said that its motherboard has
    some problem and they do not have part. They have to get it from the company
    and within a week I will get my phone but now it is almost THREE months but
    they have not rectified the defect. Sometimes they say that the motherboard has
    to come from china ,blah, blah , blah…….The mobile is still lying with them and
    they are not informing anything about the status nor even responding to
    mails and it is very difficult to reach them on phone(their customer care
    line for mobiles cost Rs 2 per min(for other products it is toll free)
    something that has never been seen till date) and they are neither providing
    any time frame for return of the handset. Mails written even to MD were not
    even responded, a satisfactory reply is a distant thought

      Take the dudes to Consumer Court man! You will get faster justice there at a negligible cost.

      • hmmmm

        yes but again time , energy and money will have to be invested in going to consumer forum………also twice i had to take leave for visiting thier service centre which is just one in whole of Delhi NCR and work according to govt timings 10 to 5 mon to sat….and there are three levels of forums……..companies can easily fight but u cant……i dont know whats the problem with them changing a motherboeard is not that tough issue

    • Lenovo K900 User

      • Abhinav

        Actually anyone with money and mind woul never go for samsung ! ;)

        • psybaba

          Samsung Is just OEM Phones With a Tag And Inflated Prices… What Crap..

          • View From The Top

            SS, Sony, LG are NOT Chinese phones with inflated price tags. They all design their own phones and have in-house R&D.

            Chinese manufactured? Yes. Inflated price tags? Definitely. But not OEM phones.

            You’re thinking about Micromax, Karbonn, Lava, Intex, etc. when you say “OEM phones with a tag” :-)

      • Nagaraj

        You are either a Chinese or are totally ignorant of the possibility that Chinese are trying to exert their influence on Indians to make it easier for them to spy on us.

      • Sam

        Mr. K900 User, K900 is not the best phone in the world. It is just descent I can say but not the best. And more over when u a buy a phone u see the service and the product. If either of them is not available then none should go for that phone.
        Samsung/Sony/Apple are the key player in apple u can’t just igone them and stick on saying that ur Lenevo is the best.

        • Raj Dhillon

          You’re spot on. Service support must become a major issue & till necessary legislation is brought in, an ordinance suitably covering each & every aspect must be brought in.
