Lenovo A789 - First impressions
OK, I received the A789 on Monday from etotalk. I have it running in parallel with my A750and here are my first impressions:
Build quality nice, slightly slimmer and bigger than the A750. Looks ot as bulky. The back cover grips well in hand.
The screen Pleasant and same size and quality as the A750. No problems with touch quality.
Google Apps Installed by etotalk. Works well. No problems with geographic apps i.e Park-Line, Paris Metro. My Dutch bank app works well.
GPS has EPO assistance, A-GPS. Bit slow to lock.
FM Transmitter Can be useful to listen to Nav instructions on your car radio
Performance Better than the A750. Tested with SPB Shell 3D and Asphalt 6. AnTuTu score is 5302.
Edit: Network Location problem sorted with Mobileuncle tool. Binding issue
Problems For some reason, the Location service does not work. Apps can ot find location with the Network Location services. I have reported the problem to etotalk with screen shots. Will post update.
Remarks I like the phone, good feel, good performance, classier look than the A750. I only think it's a pity the Lenovo didn't release this phone with 1GB RAM
Feel free to post any questions you might have.
