Lenovo is a great mobile phone company in that they offer a lot of midrange phones that are priced lower than its competitors.
In today’s article, I will talk about one of their latest midrange phones in the market: the Lenovo Vibe K5 Note.
Although this mobile phone is considered to be a midrange phone, the Lenovo Vibe K5 Note actually has premium looks.
It’s got an all glass front with three capacitive buttons at the bottom for recent apps, home, and back buttons.
On the back panel, you can see that all-metal chassis. It sports a metallic monotone look and it looks pretty stylish.
On the right side of the phone, you will see the volume rockers as well as the power button. On the back side, you will see the rear camera with a single LED flash, a speaker grille, and the fingerprint scanner which looks round and is situated just below the rear camera.
The Lenovo Vibe K5 Note is really catered to people who want to do a lot of media consumption on their mobile phones.
This phone comes with a 5.5-inch IPS display with a resolution of 1920x1080 and a pixel count of 401ppi. Although there isn’t anything new with the specs because it is pretty much the standard among midrange phones, you are treated with a vibrant display that is fit for media consumption.
To help amplify the media-viewing experience, the Lenovo Vibe K5 Note is equipped with a single speaker grille located at the back and it also comes with the Dolby Atmos technology. The feature can be a hit or miss depending on what type of movie or media you’re currently enjoying on the mobile phone. I find that the feature is best used when viewing outer space movies like Interstellar, for example.
As for the operating system, the Lenovo Vibe K5 Note comes with the Android Lollipop 5.1. Hold your horses! Before you complain, there is actually a notification for you to update to the latest Android Marshmallow operating system, so do not fret!
The phone also comes with 32GB of storage and it can support up to 128GB of microSDXC card storage. I suggest buying the Class 10 ones for better read and write speeds.
The performance package of the Lenovo Vibe K5 Note is actually a tad better than other midrange phones currently on the market.
This phone is equipped with the Helio P10 octa-core processor that is clocked at 1.8GHz. When running multi-threaded applications like Facebook, you will never notice any lag whatsoever. Even in normal applications, the phone works seamlessly and without a hitch.
The Lenovo Vibe K5 Note also comes with the Mali-T850MP2 GPU and a respectable 3GB of RAM which is good enough for most cases.
The Lenovo Vibe K5 Note’s camera is respectable but do not expect too much from it. The phone comes with a 13-megapixel rear camera and an 8-megapixel front camera. Both of them have LED flash but the rear camera also has the phase detection autofocus feature as well.
The Lenovo Vibe K5 Note is probably one of the best midrange phones that are currently on the market. And, word on the street says that when you buy the phone today, you are also going to receive a VR headset kit absolutely free!
