A little review of the Lenovo S8 after few months of use. I think that the hardware is not so bad. The battery is good, photos are not bad. But the software is shit. The OS is slow, laggy. And it is difficult to trust the security of such a jailbraked software.
Therefore I ordered a phone that is designed to last long : The Fairephone 2. I will give you updates about it.
The Popcorn time of Music is there now !
Download from aurous.me the 64 or 32 bits version. Unzip into a folder, chmod +x on linux/jxbrowser-chromium.
You’ll need Java8 to run it. On linux, follow this link tutorial if you dont have access to java 8 in the repo (apt like). Then $ sudo apt-get -t unstable install openjdk-8-jdk
Hi all. Really small tutorial on how to build a mp4 from your .iso DVD (to cast to chromecast for example).
On Linux : Simply type this code. Note that you might have several VTS_*.VOB to concat.
ffmpeg -i concat:"Downloads/VIDEO_TS/VTS_01_1.VOB|Downloads/VIDEO_TS/VTS_01_2.VOB|Downloads/VIDEO_TS/VTS_01_3.VOB" -vcodec libx264 output.mp4
We’ll be migrating to a new server soon. So expect some changes.
See you soon !
Hi, I installed custom rom some weeks ago and rooted it.
A short feedback : I still have some words in chinese. Not too ennoying be it remember me that this phone is still not perfect. It is specially the contacts app and Lenovo_Call_UI that have some things in chinese. Battery is good, I use the phone 2-3 hours a day and it can last two days like this.
Photos are not perfect. I would say they are worst than my iPhone 4S. A bit slow to shoot.
I also noticed that charging it with laptop is very slow (1h 10%) but quick with usual transformator.
Nothing more to say… Doing the job.
I didn’t manage to create my own ROM without the ennoying apps. So I rooted it !
See the tutorial HERE !
I got some ennoying apps thare where pre-installed in the ROM I got. Here is my solution to avoid them to show popups, adds etc. (Vibe UI 2.5) :
Go to Mobile network settings
It’s always good to see what “Lang” mean in the ROM.
We can see that the translation is not perfect.
Antutu benchmark is the same as the one with original ROM.
II will provide the used ROM. Click HERE
