RCA, Thank you for creating the topic, I think it is already quite relevant.
The main question is, are there any owners of this unit on the forum?
How much did the phone's operating time suffer due to a more powerful processor?
Does anyone still have a normal Russian firmware on hand? (Photos of Russian firmware are on Ali)

As far as we know from conversations with sellers, the Russian-language self-made firmware has glitches. Includingnot working camera .

Regarding the language and the market, at the aforementioned forum, Qqqs has already made multilingual firmware with the Russian language, root and Google services. Only to spread it in no hurry, wants to sell it to the Chinese ...
Now, given this news, I am still leaning towards the A789 model because the new percent is better than the screen than the 750 and in my subjective opinion is more beautiful.

Here only at the expense of a different form, it is very winning. Much prettier

Just because of the different shapes, I would like to see a comparison of the thickness.
In addition to the back cover, I liked the thinning to the bottom of the case and the fact that all the connectors are now on top.
In general, apparently not very bad. At first, I somehow didn’t like this device (512 RAMs are not enough), but after watching the tests I decided that it was worth buying it. : sveta:

p.s. In addition, the price tag of 170 greens is very humane.)

Screen comparison

Subjectively - the screen is slightly less bright. The viewing angles are absolutely identical - absolutely none :)

Unfortunately, the photo is not high quality. The sizes turned out to be 100% identical, only 789 have slightly protruding corners. The photo is not even visible due to the selected angle of view.

In general, the case is a little thinner. The only thickening is in the area of ​​the chamber. But the glass of the camera is recessed in a metal rim. Those. if you put it on the table, then the emphasis is on the rim.
In general - the phone is nicer in the hand than 750. Even despite my love for soft-touch plastic :)

Comrades, I'm sorry for the banal question, but with no tension, I can’t do it myself. Does the camera of this device allow you to get high-quality legible photo text?


5 megapixels. Not Kenon, but OK. Only no flash.

Yes, the product was released and forgot to present, suspiciously however. Although I really like the phone for this price.

The phone was made specifically for the Chinese market and for a particular telecom operator, probably it advertises.

Regarding the battery - that’s what they write in the blochttp://lovecellphone.wordpress.com/


Lenovo A789 comes with one 2000Mah battery, which is a great power for the phone. According to exited experience, 2000mah battery can last 5-6days standby.

I ordered with pandaville for 180 tanks, the impression of the phone is good for the money, the first glitch when you press the call the screen turns off and the buttons do not work until the person you call answers the phone (this was not the case from the beginning, the reset does not help, I don’t know what do, there are no firmware yet to rearrange .. I delved into the applications pre-installed by the factory, a bunch of all sorts of online services, I thought to delete or disable it, maybe this led to a glitch ?!

Who wants to buy this phone I highly recommend finding someone who has it and see the screen brightness and viewing angle when playing a video file. I just drove that back because of this. When I took it yesterday, I did not try to watch the video. It turns out the viewing angle is so small that literally 5 degrees in any direction and the picture is completely inverted when watching a video. The brightness is on the makmashalku at him and my LG P500 is in the middle and my screen looks brighter and my viewing angles are simply excellent after that. It’s good that I was able to return it, and if you are thinking of ordering it from China, I strongly advise you to do what I wrote. Outwardly, everything is done beyond praise the assembly is just excellent. It looks very solid and beautiful.

I got one like that yesterday. I have it under supervision, but not in my use. I patched the Russian firmware, but unfortunately, there is a jamb with it - God forbid, she eats the battery.

how to flash through a flash tool

Rep: (1825)
Here are my small aesthetic improvements made on the modified firmware from APKHOT posted earlierHere.
The repackaged logo.bin with the lenovo inscription and the Russified pictures (the Chinese inscriptions were also removed) for the charging mode in the disconnected state (logo.bin from sgg is taken as the basis). Install the update.zip file through recovery.
Beautiful boot animation of lenovo with sound. Unpack the Boot animation.rar archive and upload its contents using RootExplorer to the system \ media folder after deleting the files with the same name.
Then we delete the logo from APKHOT, for this RootExplor th delete the boot_logo file in the system \ media \ images folder. Now everything is stylish and beautiful.

Here I wrote a review on Lenovo A789, maybe someone will be useful
If you have questions - ask, I will be happy to answer :)

Rep: (2)
Guys, I throw a thought, then I think someone will check it. The Lenovo A789 has a 2000mAh battery, while the Lenovo P700 and P700I already have a 2500mAh battery. In appearance, the phones are very similar, so now the question is, is the Lenovo P700 battery suitable for Lenovo A789? The only difference in my opinion is that one is 2000mAh / 7.4wh, the other 2500mAh / 9.5wh. Itself is not strong in electrical engineering, perhaps this difference will not allow it to function without damage to the device, so I put the idea into view, do not kick much. Who will say what?
