Lenovo Vibe K5 Review

Lenovo Vibe K5 falls within the budget of most ordinary folks at a price of £129 in the UK and from the look of things its worth the price to quote.

As an upgrade from K4 , lenovo K5 vibe is a dual-sim phone with a capacitative 5-inch display screen. octa-core CPU, 2GB RAM, 16GB internal storage which expandable through SD slot, 13MP primary camera, 5MP secondary camera and 2,750mah removable battery and electrical engineer Atmos speakers.
Whether by glancing or laying hands on this phone, you get a premium look and feel, which is quite rare of new entry of smartphones that are considered affordable.
Lenovo K5 smartphone may not much up with luxury devices like HTC 10 or iphone 6S, it still decent enough to be seen like one.

Lenovo K5 comes with 2 stock speakers built by engineers using Atmos technology, as a result producing louder quality sound than its predecessors which had custom speakers.

Lenovo still has some milestones to cover in terms of their user interface, currently K5 does not really five the hyper-active engagement as most competitors do. While other brands have dynamically responded to changing design, lenovo has been slow to incorporate changes to their devices especially laptops. However, it good to admit that major changes are being witnessed in their handsets especially the vibe series.

Lenovo K5 runs on Android OS, v5.1 (Lollipop) K5 is powered by 1.5Ghz Octa-core processor coupled with Qualcomm MSM8929 Snapdragon 415 and Adreno 405 graphics. The K5 Note version of K5 is a powered by a 1.8Ghz octa-core MediaTek processor has 4GB RAM and Mali-T860 GPU and runs on android 6.0.

Lenovo is a well known producer of gadgets especially laptops for over a decade now, now lenovo produces other devices including smartphones. Currently lenovo supplies its phones world wide including the African market. For instance Lenovo K5 plus is sold in Kenya at a price of ksh. 15000 equivalent to $150.
That said, lenovo vibe has really boosted the popularity of lenovo smartphones, we are yet to see lenovo competing with bigger brands like  samsung, htc and LG.
