Yeah. It’s good… Lenovo didn’t make me regret for not purchasing Le 1s… Le 1s has a poor UI… Lenovo has a GOOD UI… With this update, phone has become faster, not heating while charging, and gives a better battery backup… Along with this, its quite cool to see movies on ANTVR…

K50a40 is actually K3 Note’s model number 😛 So this is exactly the 1.6 GB update that they released for K3 Note in March. Most people regretted updating their K3 Note to Marshmallow, so it might ruin your K4 Note as well. No real benefit in updating so I stuck to Lollipop.

I am using it found no problems.
Actually phone is faster and better battery backup.i am using it nonstop with 6 hours wifi on nonstop.This is a stable release.K4 note had 7 beta zip releases of marshmallow before.This is a stable release.Maybe k3 note is lagging due to 2gb ram as free ram is now around 1-1.5gb ram.
