Lenovo K8 Note specifications: 5.5-inch Full HD display| MediaTek Helio X23 (MT6797) | 3GB RAM + 32GB ROM and 4GB RAM + 64GB ROM| microSD card support (up to 128GB)|13MP main camera + 5MP secondary camera for depth-sensing camera | 13MP front camera |4000mAh battery | Android 7.1 Nougat

Design-wise, Lenovo K8 Note looks like an ordinary smartphone. It would not be wrong to say that the design of the phone is uninspiring. Sure, it has a metal unibody-clad design but it took me awhile to get attached to the K8 Note. Between Fine Gold and Venom Black, I preferred the latter. The metal chassis feels solid, and the use of 2.5D Gorilla Glass on the front should offer reasonable protection from minor cuts and scratches. Thankfully, Lenovo has supplied a plastic cover inside the box for added protection.

My issue with the Lenovo K8 Note’s design is not that it doesn’t look original, but that it sports a thick bezel that makes typing with one hand hard for most people. Lenovo has opted for a fingerprint scanner on the back which I have always found more logical. The fingerprint scanner on the K8 Note was largely fine during my testing. Like any modern day smartphone, Lenovo K8 Note has a microSD card slot, which will lets users add a further 128GB of storage.

The phone has separate slots for your microSD card and two SIM cards. Lenovo also throws a dedicated music key on the right side of the phone, which can be used used to control music playback. But the same can be configured to control the camera, open the flashlight, take a screenshot for that matter, or open any other app you use frequently.

Lenovo has loaded the K8 Note with a 5.5-inch display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. You don’t get pure blacks like you’d get on an AMOLED display, but the K8 Note still offers solid contrast. The display is mostly bright, with excellent viewing angles. All in all, the K8 Note’s screen is pretty good.

By and large, Lenovo K8 Note is a mid-end smartphone. But I’m happy to report that when you combine a deca-core MediaTek Helio X23 (MT6797) processor with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage, you get a decent performance on a smartphone priced under Rs 15,000. In my regular usage I didn’t have any problems with the K8 Note’s performance. Apps loaded within seconds and the phone seemed fluid even when you open multiple browser tabs at once.

Lenovo K8 Note comes with Google’s Android 7.1 Nougat out of the box. I’m happy to see that Lenovo has finally ditched its aged Vibe Pure UI to streamline the experience on the phone. It was a menace, and thankfully the K8 Note ships with Android Nougat without any bloatware apps.

The phone is backed by a 4,000mAh, non-removable battery, which is pretty big for a 5.5-inch phone. It was my primary phone for week; my regular use included browsing the web, playing games on the commute to and from work, checking my Facebook feed, making and receiving calls, and listening to music. Lenovo K8 Note promises to deliver enough battery to last a full working day and a bit more.
