Lenovo Vibe K5 Note (4GB) Features

After the successful launch of K3 Note, Lenovo launched it's successor the Vibe K4 Note which didn't pick up well, thanks to other competitors like the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3. Lenovo is back with the another phone in the Vibe series called as the Vibe K5 Note.

Design and Display

The phone has a metal unibody design, different from the Vibe K4 Note and is available in the colors Gold, Graphite Gray and Silver. And there is a 5.5 inch display on the front of the device that has a resolution of 1920x1080 pixels giving it a pixel density of 401PPI. Unfortunately, there isn't any sort of display protection here.

Hardware amd Features

In terms of performance, we have a MediaTek MT6755M Helio P10 chipset that is clocked at 1.8GHz on Octa Cores and combined along is 4GB of RAM and Mali-T860MP2 GPU. Other features of the phone includes a fingerprint scanner and FM Radio which is a must these days. Lenovo VIbe K5 Note's operating system is based on Android Marshmallow 6.0 and running on top of it Lenovo's Vibe UI which this time is said to be toned down to offer a closer to stock Android experience.

Camera and Storage

On the back of the device is a 13MP sensor that can shoot videos up to 1080p, whereas on the front there is a 8MP shooter for selfies and video calling. On the rear of the device, you also get an LED Flash to shoot in low light conditions and the camera also sports Phase Detection AutoFocus (PDAF). To store all your pictures and other data, you get 32GB of onboard storage that can be further expanded up to 128GB via a microSD card.

Battery and Connectivity

Lenovo Vibe K5 Note houses a 3500mAh battery which sounds sufficient enough to last you through the day. And as far as connectivity is concerned, the device accepts Dual SIMs as long as you do not intend to use a microSD card for storage expansion, thanks to the second hybrid slot. The phone does support 4G LTE with VoLTE.

The new Vibe K5 Note however doesn't have a Corning Gorilla Glass for protection against scratches. The display on the Vibe K5 Note looks bright.

I was using 3G phone. When I decided to go for 4G, I was a bit confuse between MI and Lenovo. Finally, I decided to go with Lenevo vibe K5 note. And after using for almost a year, now I can say that my decision was correct. It never hangs as it has 4 GB RAM. Back camera is fine, front is awesome. It has almost all the latest features that someone must be looking in his smartphone like finger censor, bright front camera, very good speed, storage of 32 GB etc. I am loving it.
The Good
  • Good battery
  • Nice look
  • Finger sensor
  • 4 GB ram
The Bad
  • Its little heavy in weight
  • It does not have in-built gesture sensor
