Lenovo Vibe K5 Note (3GB) Features

Lenovo after the successful K3 Note 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 successor called 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 MT6755 Helio P10 chipset that is clocked at 1.8GHz on Octa Cores and combined along is 3GB or 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 make much close to stock Android.

Camera and Storage

On the back of the device the device has a 13MP sensor that can shoot videos up to 1080p, whereas on the front there is a 8MP shooter for selfies and video calling. 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 MicroSD card for storage expansion, thanks to the second hybrid slot. The phone does support 4G LTE with VoLTE.

The price band of the Vibe K5 note suggests that it will give a tough competition to Xiaomi Redmi Note 3, LeEco’s Le 2, and Moto G4 Plus. The Vibe K5 Note gives you several features to edge it ahead in this race and be preferred over the likes: the extra RAM, TheatreMax technology, the VR headset support, and the Dolby Atmos sound system. But, talking about the drawbacks: the phone does get heated up quickly. The camera quality can be found better in Le2 while it's heavier than Le2 too. The finger-print sensor is swift but then it's nothing unique. .
The Good
  • The Dolby atmos sound system is quite good, the VR headset provision and the Swift finger-print sensor along with the VOLTE support are mentionable but don't hold anything unique
The Bad
  • The phone gets heated up quickly. There is nothing commendable about the design or the look. The camera quality is poorer than the phones of the same range while it's heavier too.

The Good

  • Smooth performance.

Smooth interface,decent Camera and Call quality. Battery will last for just a day if you are an average user. That is my experience. With very moderate internet, social media usage and few calls, it almost comes to 30% in the evening. Heavy users will literally cry if they go for it. Otherwise, a good phone.
The Good
  • 1.Full metallic artistic craftsmanship.
  • 2.4 GB RAM for smoother performance.
  • 3.Quick finger-print scanner.
  • 4.32 GB internal memory with 128 GB SD card.
The Bad
  • 1. No special protection like Gorilla Glass for the display.
  • 2. Battery is non-removable.
  • 3. The camera quality is not up to the mark.
  • 4. No dedicated slot for SIM 2.
