1. Lenovo K8 Note Reviews: The Best 4G Smartphone under 15000 with Price, Features, Specifications
Lenovo recently hits the Indian market with its new #killerNote – the K8 Note. Ideally, it has to be the K7 Note’s turn, but as per Lenovo, it was not killer enough, so it was decided to ditch it for the K8 Note.
It’s a head-on collision with the current market leader, as far as the mid-range segment is concerned, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4, and to be very honest, K8 Note beats Note 4 in all the aspects and emerges as a beast.
The most significant talk of the town for the K8 Note is its OS. When you unbox it, you find the phone running on stock Android Nougat. Lenovo ditched not only K7 Note but also its Pure User Interface, VibeUI, to offer unadulterated Android experience.
Let’s have a quick look at what’s inside the all-metal body; it is powered by a MediaTek MT 6797 Helios X23 deca-core chipset and aided by a Mali-T880 MP4 GPU along with 3GB/4GB RAM (Here we will be talking about the 4GB RAM and 64GB ROM variant)./
Lenovo has done another appreciable job by making K8 note, the first K series phone to come with splash resistant. Lenovo has taken the protection point as one of its primary focus, that is why K8 Note is given Gorilla Glass protection and oleophobic coating on top of the display.
The camera is another area where the device received incremental upgrades. It features a 13MP + 5MP rear cameras set up where the 5MP camera is used for depth sensing. Up front, there is a 13 MP selfie camera with LED flash for self-portraits which is an excellent experiment as we saw in the previous K5 Note that carried a 5MP front camera, which was a bit disappointment for social butterflies.
