Android 5.0 on my smartphones
Lenovo has said the next big update for the Moto X is 5.0 Vibe UI 2.5, as far as VZW, I haven't looked. But there's a reason why some carriers aren't jumping on the 5.0, 5.0.1, 5.0.2 update. Lollipop is buggy. That was my first thought as well, however as a Verizon customer in the US I think that means waiting for 5.2 in July which is killing me. And this infinitely better than the version 5.0.2 of the Soak Test.
I've updated my last reply. Actually, it is working great right now. Maybe because I am using the beta version, that had fixed this issue. I've just tested this now. Im only seeing my old devices though? I have it enabled under the security settings too. For some reason, even new android device manager isn't finding my phone .
About the side loading, because the wrong version can cause issues. Only other thing I can think of doing is either deleting apps one by one to see if you can find the issue OR a factory reset. don't have to install Android device manager. You have to enable it under settings>security>device administrators and enable android device manager, and also set the location setting to high accuracy and also make sure your WiFi or data is ON.
I just got an update to it and then uninstalled it and haven't had the problem since. It does seem a little snappier. How often should you do that because I actually cleared it about a month ago too. 3.5-5.5hours SOT with around 12-15hr of total use over 100%charge with WiFi on 70-75% of the time of usage..
TBF they haven't manufactured these in quite some time, so the jab about QC is a bit much just because of this very peculiar marking and the fact that the majority of people run skins and/or cases on their phones and wouldn't see it. Not trying to sound disrespectful or anything though.
Lenovo has nothing to do with this "issue". They weren't even in the picture until ~ the 2nd gen X and by that time the 2013 model had already been discontinued 4G uses both 3g and 2g antennas together , so it will definitely drain more battery than just 3g alone. If at all 4g network coverage is great then I guess it will consume less battery but never less than 2g or 3g alone .
But if you don't have 4G connectivity in your city, you must switch to 3G. Also in India 4G is running on 2100Mhz, which is not supported by lenovo vibe x2 or vibe x2 pro anyways and i just fund a new lenovo lemo ke note 5.5" smartphones android 5.0 on Nextbuying.com . So even if your city has the 4G connectivity, lenovo other smartphones will not support that. So make the switch to 3G. Is not going to make any difference in the data speeds. Will definitely save up some battery for you.
That's what I'd like to do is test a Sim in all my devices to see which works best for the best price. I have a feeling T-Mobile will not work well I'm about 25 to 30 min to the closest city and they are not great if and when you go out to the boonies. I'm also in a general marginal coverage area to begin with. I guess its all about research.
Love the fact that it is so close to the new Oneplus one or xiaomi and lenovo Chinese brand smartphones ( moto x as a Chinese brand ? hah ) in appearance. And with the recent software update it runs like a champ. I was taken back by the size at first but honestly can't see myself going back to a smaller phone. that's good about the sim for testing it. I think they will be good. They may not be crazy fast lte like T-Mobile can be but it's decent in many areas and the nexus 6 I heard is really good on both att and T-Mobile.
