First I will talk about what is in the box then I will talk about its Specifications Followed by Its Prons and Cons. So let’s start:--------------------## WHAT IS IN THE BOX?--------------------♦ Lenovo K8 Note itself♦ User Guide♦ Sim Ejector tool♦ Transparent Case♦ Adapter♦ USB Cable--------------------## SPECIFICATIONS:--------------------♦ Operating System: Android 7.1 Nougat with Android UI♦ Display: 5.5-inch Full HD display with Cornilla Gorilla Glass 3♦ Processor: 2.3 GHz Deca Core MediaTek Helio X23 (MT6797)♦ RAM: 3GB RAM and 4GB RAM♦ Internal Storage: 32GB and 64GB (Expandable upto 128GB)♦ Camera: 13MP main camera + 5MP secondary camera for depth-sensing camera, 13MP front camera♦ Dimensions: 154.5 x 75.9 x 8.5mm♦ Weight: 180g♦ Battery: 4000mAh battery♦ Supports Dual Sim♦ Splash Resistant--------------------## PROS:--------------------▲ Android Nougat▲ Solid build quality▲ Dedicated slots for SIM and Micro SD cards▲ Customizable Music Key▲ TheaterMax VR support▲ Cornilla Gorilla Glass Protection▲ Smooth Performance▲ Turbo Charging▲ Dolby Atmos for Better 3D song▲ LED Flash for Front Camera--------------------## CONS:--------------------▼ Poor Low Light Camera Performance▼ Non-Removable Battery▼ Little Heavy▼ Dual Camera needs Improvement▼ Gets warm Quickly▼ Does not have 4K video RecordingNow let’s move to full review:--------------------## CAMERA:--------------------The 13MP camera on the Lenovo K8 Note can shoot great details in outdoor lighting. The color contrast and dynamic range are fine too. For indoor shots, the images aren’t very sharp and noise too creeps in.Overall, the camera performance is good enough for the price. We would rank the rear camera performance as better than Redmi Note 4 and somewhat below the likes of Cool 1 dual and Honor 6X. The second camera on the K8 Note is used for depth sensing. You can switch to dual camera mode from the icon on the top left corner in the camera view finder. Once you select the ‘Depth enabled’ mode, you will notice a slider on the left that can be used to adjust the intensity of the background blur in your portrait shots.It performance in portrait mode wasn’t perfect and we hope this is somthing lenovo will improve over the next few weeks with software update. We have already received first camera improvement update on our review unit. The 13MP camera selfie camera on the K8 note again performs well outdoors. In doors, performance is nothing to write home about. A manual mode is present and you can use it to enhance your low light selfies to an extent.--------------------## DESIGN:--------------------As far as design goes, Lenovo plays it safe with a tried and trusted template. K8 Note has a metal back that gently curves towards the edges, metallic sides with single chamfered edge, and a 2.5D Gorilla Glass with smudge resistant oleophobic coating on the front. It’s a tall phone with beefy bezels on top and bottom, but it’s also reasonably slim that makes it quite comfortable to wield, in spite of the decent heft ( 180 grams) that it has. The fingerprint sensor is mounted on the rear, right below the dual camera capsule, and the capacitive navigation bar is present below the display. Another interesting aspect is the dedicated music key on the right. You can double tap the key for Play/Pause and also use it to the switch tracks. Or you can customize the double tap action to launch any app, fire camera flash, etc.--------------------## SOFTWARE:--------------------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. Expect the same level of software experience you get on a Motorola smartphone. In practice, stock Android does make a huge difference, especially if the phone boasts impressive specs and performance.--------------------## PERFORMANCE:--------------------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. Playing demanding games like Asphalt 8: Airborne and Batman – The Telltale Series, the phone took more time to load. The games when loaded did run smoothly, but the phone became noticeably hot during long gaming sessions, but this is expected. Lenovo K8 Note offers reasonably loud listening experience, in spite of having only has a mono speaker. But there’s one big downer: Lenovo K8 Note ships without a pair of bundled earphones. Call quality is solid, though.--------------------## BATTERY:--------------------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.--------------------## Final Verdict:--------------------On the whole, the Lenovo K8 Note is a decent smartphone in its price range that has a few hits over misses. The smartphone comes with a good design and build quality, the TheatreMax technology is worth talking about, and Dolby Atmos is a good addition.The dedicated media button on the left comes in handy for frequently used apps. The water repellent nano coating is a nice addition to safeguard the smartphone from accidental splashes of water or rain. Near-stock Android helps to keep the device running smooth without any hiccups, only issues I noticed was during gaming.However, I’m disappointed with the performance of the dual-camera setup, especially when it is the USP of the smartphone. There definitely is room for improvement, but how much better it can get is something that remains to be seen. The Coolpad Cool 1 and Honor 6X are other alternatives that you can look for in the same price segment. And if you don’t need the dual-camera setup, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 remains our favorite smartphone at under Rs 15,000.--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Thanks for reading my review, I hope it provided all the information for a wise and well-informed purchase decision.

This is the most perfect review you can find on the K8(4gb + 64)I did a lot of research before I bought the device& I will discuss about itif your device behaves other than what I say, then it might be faultyPros:1.Very smooth display,gives a good feel on your hands & its a nice interface2.No hanging issue thanks to the stock android3.Camera: I think it is decent given the price of the device Depth mode(dual cam) is ok ok..(the photo below) normal images are good both(front and rear) Basically its a good camera for the price & better than its competition4.Deca core processor works like a charm though it does heat up a little bit5.Dedicated card slot with dual 4g sim slot WHICH WORKS FINE6.High end games run smoothly on high settings, decent fps7.Fingerprint recog is very fast no problems there.8.Gorilla glass 3 (2.5d glass)Not really cons:1.Heating: I have heard so much about the heating issue. Yes, the device heats up a lot of times but it does NOT get so hot that you can't hold it. Infact its just a little above the average temperature So its not a problem for me but its upto your preferrence.2.RAM management: I saw youtube videos where the device restarts the application even when its loaded in memory. I faced NO such problems, infact I ran 3 high-end three games simultaneously & all the applications resumed from where I had left but I faced lags while I did that, which is is again not a problem cause who plays 3 games simultaneously.3.Network: I heard a lot of complains that the JIO card doesn't work on the device,no network etc etc but IT WORKS LIKE A CHARM. Browsing, downloading you name it, is very fast upto the mark.4.LED notification: Its true the phones notifies only when you get a call,txt msg or an emailbut that's the device setting & I don't think that effects much, also it can be solved after an updateCons:1.Video recording should have been better,its almost below average & no slow motion recording & no 4k yet (An update has been promised, let's see )2.Turbo charge: It takes about 2hrs to get fully charged when your device is idle, but if you do heavy usage while charging,it might take 4 hrs+ to get fully charged.Battery drains at an average pace,I won't say its very good niether I can say that its bad.3.Dollby Atmos: This has been the most disappointing thing for me,I used k5 note which had a great Dollby effect & then there is this device which does not match the standard of its predecessor4.Low Light images are very bad on both(front and rear) rear flash is ok ok But its better than its competitionOverall :Its a good phone at the price,has pretty good benchmark scores & other scoresthere are a few cons but if you can live with them,then go for it.I will give it 3.8/5
