Did you know that Lenovo was founded in Beijing around 1984 and they also acquired IBM’s PC business in the year 2005? Lenovo entered the Android and Windows market in 2011, and it started there. In this article, we are going to tackle about the Lenovo K8 Note review.
Lenovo K8 Note Review – Killer Design Note
Just last month, Lenovo released another smartphone which is the Lenovo K8 Note. “Note” sounds a lot like Samsung but this one is different. This phone is a dual SIM smartphone that accepts Nano-SIMs (the one that is smaller). It has a Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, USB OTG, FM, 3G and 4G (that supports LTE connectivity). For PokemonGo players, we would like you to know that yes, it has Gyroscope. You can also use your VR for this phone.
Lenovo K8 Note has been released just last month, August 2017. This 5.5 inches phone is running an Android 7.1.1 (Nougat) operating system and with a Deca-core 2.3 GHz CPU. It has its own dedicated slots for microSD cards and dual SIMs. Its internal capacity covers from 3GB to 64GB RAM. And this smartphone lasts up to 25 hours when being used.
For customers to see a quick guide to its advantage and disadvantage, we listed its pros and cons and why do we think it is.
- Helio X23 10-core 2.3GHz, 64-Bit. Need I say more about it? It’s as good as the Snapdragon 835.
- TheaterMax VR support.
- Android Nougat.
- It has a fingerprint scanner (which is a must-have)
- There are pre-installed apps like Maps, Hangouts, Google+, Play Music, Play Games, Play Movies & TV, YouTube, Gmail, Play Books, Play Newsstand, Photos, Drive, and Chrome.
- It has a 13MP Selfie Camera with Party Flash. You don’t need to worry having blurred pictures on selfies!
- You can enjoy Dolby Atmos® from its built-in speakers or your headphones.
- Sturdy built. You will feel it right the very first time you hold it.
- It gets warm quickly. Too bad. Having a phone case for this phone won’t be advisable since it gets warm quickly.
- Poor low-light camera performance. Only on low-light. Does it mean you need to be outside or in a nice lighting place to get a good shot? Hmm.
- Average battery life plus a non removable battery. Its 4000mAh battery can only last for roughly for 20 hours with heavy usage. You will need nearly 2 hours in order for it to fully charge.
It’s a good thing we always can compare the specifications of these new smartphones online before we purchase them. In this case, Lenovo K8 Note is like other smartphones who happened to have their own shortcomings and advantages.
The negative part of it focuses on the battery life and heating, and we’re sure you might have second thoughts on that. However, you still can think about its deca-core CPUs and VR support that you can use while playing games. Whether you still want to buy it or not, weigh the pros and cons and make a checklist. Still, you as a consumer can see for yourself whether you will like this phone. You can decide and let us know your thoughts!
