Final verdict

The Lenovo is noted comes with some improvements over the Lenovo k4 note. There is nothing new and exciting in the Lenovo K5 Note. But don’t get it wrong k5 note is a great smartphone for its price. The MediaTek Helio P10 is a great processor and paired with Mali T860MP2 GPU it can handle any app and game smoothly. I don’t know why it decreased the ram size, it is 3GB in a k4 note but it’s 2 GB in a k5 note.


The overall build and design of the mobile are good due to metal construction.  Rear camera quality is almost the same as a k4 note but the front camera is better than the Lenovo k4 note. The battery performance is also good and easily lasts a day. Overall the Lenovo k5 note is the smartphone which the k4 note should have been. It will be interesting to see when the Lenovo k5 will be launched in the international market and at what price.
