Features and specs

The Lenovo Vibe K5 Note has a 5.5-inch Full HD display with 401 pixels per inch. Powered by a MediaTek Helio P10 processor with 3/ 4GB RAM and 32GB internal storage, the phone can further be expanded up to 128GB using a microSD card. The device runs on the Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS.

The battery is a 3500 mAh li-ion Polymer non-removable battery, and a 64-bit Octa Core 1.8 GHz P10 processor. A dual-SIM phone, the second SIM slot can accommodate either a nano SIM or a microSD memory card. Sensors include the gravitation, proximity, light, e-compass and gyroscope. The phone features FM radio, as well as supports Bluetooth and WLAN connectivity.

With pictures (more importantly selfies) being all the rage with phones, the Lenovo Vibe K5 Note scores well with a 13MP rear camera with a  dual-LED flash, and an 8MP front-facing camera. The rear camera also boasts of the Fast Phase Detect Auto-focus technology, which ensures that images do not blur on clicking, even if the subject of the photo is not stationary.

The phone is also TheatreMax technology enabled, and you can choose to additionally purchase accessories such as the ANTVR Headset or the Lenovo Umido ESoul DH2 Remote Controller to enhance your TheatreMax experience.

One of the prominent features of this phone is the Secure Zone, which when activated allows the K5 Note to function as two separate, secure virtual phones. For instance, you can set up one phone as ‘personal’ and the other as ‘work’, and thus separate WhatsApp chats, for instance. However since two instances of an app can run at the same time, you can get notifications across both. The Data Isolation feature is another plus, which safeguards your personal data, photo gallery and most other content as well.

The phone is available in three colours, viz. Champagne Gold, Platinum Silver and Graphite Grey. It comes with a one year manufacturer warranty for the handset and six months warranty for the in-box accessories.

The bottom line

Priced upwards of Rs. 11,999 (depending upon the variant you choose), the phone promises some good features at a very competitive price, which will likely give other smartphones in the category a run for their money. The initial user reviews appear to be positive, but of course, if you’re in the market for a new phone, it is always prudent to compare various models for yourself and their pricing before taking a call.

Mobile Upgrades: Killing The Product Before Its Time?

Have to agree. The speed of newer phone models within the same series and newer app versions lead to more thought put into buying decisions. Phone lines have a definite short shelf life

Lionel Gurjao

Frequently upgrading the software is a real problem as updating the software might cause your phone to lag because of the older hardware.

They should come out with upgrades for the specific phones and not for the separate Operating System. This way a special version for your phones specific hardware can be made
