Cons of Lollipop Upgrade for Lenovo A6000 Plus

Here are some cons of this upgrade.

WhatsApp contact Synchronization Problem after Lollipop Upgrade [*Fixed]

After the Lollipop upgrade you may face Contact Synchronization problem on WhatsApp. We have faced this problem just after the upgrade. WhatsApp was not showing any contacts in the list. All the chat heads were without names. We tried hard to solve this problem but nothing improved.


Solution to this WhatsApp problem is to reset your smartphone. After reset everything works fine. Before you start resetting, don’t forget to take backup of your data and contacts. It is a better option to upload all your contacts to your google account. Copy all your media and required files to SD card. Make sure you have around 1GB 3G Data to reinstall the applications after resetting your smartphone.

On startup your phone will ask you to login using your google account, login using the same account that you were logged in before. This way you will get back all your contacts. Now is the time to reinstall all the applications. Install WhatsApp and other applications. Start WhatsApp and you will see all the contacts in the contact list of WhatsApp.

If you still face problem, write in comments.

Battery Draining Faster

Another problem that we could find after Lollipop upgrade in Lenovo A6000 Plus is, that the battery was draining faster. Lollipop is eating more power than KitKat. Though battery doesn’t drain so fast that you have to charge your phone 2 or more times a day. But your battery won’t last whole day if you use internet and play videos regularly. This problem is something that Lenovo has to work on.
