    Welcome to DroidForums danialamshar! I'm not familiar with the lenovo a516. Is there anything that you have done differently with it recently? New apps installed? rooted?

    Welcome to the forum @danialamshar ! Like Tis, I'm not real familiar with that device either. After doing a quick Google search, your problem seems to be quite common, with the device freezing, lagging and just overall sluggishness. How long have you had the device? If it's still fairly new, have you contacted your carrier or Lenovo about getting it replaced?
    Hang in there and hopefully some of our more knowledgeable members can offer some assistance.
    Good luck!

    I've had it for one phone year already. Went to have the phone fixed and the shop assistant told me it couldn't be repaired, as it has been 'rooted'.

    I sorry to hear you're having the troubles with your phone. Since its rooted I'm assuming you rooted it yourself? If so, you might want to try doing a Factory Data Restore. If that doesn't works, then you might want to try finding the most recent ROM for your phone and flashing it.
