I bought this phone in Oct 2013 as a gift for my Mom. The Phone stopped charging in 2 months. It was with the Service centre for almost 2 months. I wrote several emails to the Company and followed up with several calls - no customer service support at all. nFinally when the service center gave me a credit note - However the Lenovo supplier refuses to provide a replacement giving stupid reasons. nExtremely unprofessional Company. I can show anyone the trail of 10 mails I have sent to Lenovo without a single reply.

Pros-ngood battery life(way better than micromax) and battery backup is really importantngood touch responsivenessnbright and crisp displaynGood camera(better than mircomax)nnCons-nPoor quality earphones(but you can buy other, I use samsung ones and they work great!)nLess support available(you won't find its case and accessories easily, unless you have their officical center in yoru city)nnOverall, I would recommend it over all the inexpensive brands like mircomax, lava or karboon since it has very good battery backup, and configurationnnPS= I have given this review only after 2 weeks of usage. :)
Handset is very cute, sounds of speaker and ear are very good, touch sensitivity are too smooth, battery capacity is also good...overall Lenovo A516 is very very good mobile from Lenovo. The service of Flipkart is as usual too fast and pack this product with very caring..Thanks to Flipkart.
with in a day delivery - excellent nbut the thing is GPS not working always its show searching nand the main thing is internal memory is showing only 2.16 GB i dont know why.
