Final verdict should you buy Lenovo k5 plus?
The Lenovo k5 plus is a pretty good smartphone considering the price of Rs 8499. It comes with an octa-core Snapdragon 616 and paired with 2 GB ram and Adreno 405 GPU it can handle moderate multitasking and gaming. The build quality of k5 plus is good due to metal construction but it lacks gorilla glass as a screen protector. The 13 MP rear camera is good enough for daylight photography but it struggles in low light conditions, the good thing is that it comes with full HD video recording which is great.
The 5 mp front camera is decent enough for selfies and video calling. Coming to display the Lenovo k5 plus features a 5-inch full HD IPS display with good viewing angles and colors. The K5 also supports the ANT VR due to theater max technology as we saw with Lenovo K5 note and Vibe X3. Overall it can be said the K5 plus is the best smartphone one can get under 8499 INR. It will be interesting to see k5 plus against Xiaomi redmi 3 when it gets launched in India until then the k5 plus is a value for money smartphone.
