    1. Thank's for the attention by the way..there are some reports of problems with the Skype application, Line and Viber to communicate by using this lenovo such as other people can not hear us, but we can hear their voices. maybe this is because the mic is less sensitive for Voice / Video Call..but you can do some test for doing video call with the many apps..just try it...

    2. at first you check, your phone is rooted or not.

    3. That is a common manifestation of a wrong WiFi password. Or possibly wrong encryption method. Try modifying your WiFi access password and reconnecting.

    4. For you need to Go Settings, Wifi, then press the Menu Key, and Choose the opiton Wifi Direct, under this wifi direct change the name to a name with 5 or 6 characters lenth, save. and now it connects to all routers with no probs.

  12. I got my Lenovo A706 November 3, 2013 as I was lured by the quad-core specs and 1 GB RAM on this price range. I needed a dual-sim phone at that time of purchase so I thought the A706 provided a perfect fit. While this phone performs fast, it has a HUGE problem with touchscreen precision. When I play games like Battlefriends at Sea on it, I always get thrown onto the wrong cell next to the one I'm targetting with a vertical bias. I also have owned other brand phones from Nexus to Alcatel but this A706 suffers from the most severe imprecise touchscreen performance as per my experience. My optimistic side would want me to conclude, "otherwise, the phone is fantastic" but since touchscreen precision is critical to phone usage, then let me say "I won't be able to recommend this to my friends and family." That's quite unfortunate.
