Reviews of Lenovo Vibe K5 Note

General Reviews of the users are as follows:


  • 3/4 GB RAM providing lag free experience
  • 3500 mAh battery that provides a good backup.
  • Nice Full HD Display
  • Fingerprint Reader


  • Battery drains quickly with Android 6.0, upgrade might improve the battery performance.
  • Camera quality is not very good. Takes poor quality low light pictures.
  • No protection on screen.

Lenovo Vibe K5 Note is a low to mid budget phone. This device has a good and big 5.5 inch full HD display and also Lenovo have opted for a MediaTek Processor over QSD. There are two versions of this device with 3/4 GB RAM, I would have opted for the 3 GB RAM device as 4 GB is not required in this range of devices. This device is powered by a 3500 mAh battery which would provide good backup so no need to worry about charging your device multiple times in a day. The camera quality of the device could have been better but still considering the price they quality is good.
