Available in black, silver and gold, the phone has the following technical specs:
5.5-inch display with 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution
Android 6 (Marshmallow)
1.8 GHz MediaTek Helio P10 Quad-Core processor
32GB internal storage capacity (expandable up to 128 GB through microSD card)
13MP Primary Camera
8MP Secondary Camera
Dual Nano-SIM card support
Non-removable 3500 mAh Li-Po battery
Let’s talk about the features of this phone in some detail. One of the standout features of this handset is the enhanced security with the Fingerprint Scanner, located on the rear panel just below the camera. Through this scanner, you can unlock the phone in a mere 0.3 seconds.
Another cool feature is the TheatreMax technology that converts regular visual content into immersive VR (virtual reality) content. Insert the phone into an ANTVR headset and watch movies, play games or enjoy live TV to the fullest. Pair the smartphone with a TheatreMax controller, and you can control the content you pick with TheatreMax. You can watch 360-degree videos and find yourself immersed seamlessly in the video; you can look up or down, forward or backwards as if you are a part of the virtual surroundings. Impressive, isn’t it?
Like the Vibe K4 Note, this device also comes with Dolby Atmos-powered speakers. The technology also extends to the 3.5mm headphone jack. The Wolfson audio codec helps make sounds rich and clear. The phone’s 3-mic input facilitates crisp communication while on a call.
The powerful 1.8 GHz processor coupled with the RAM capacity gives you a smooth user experience even when you run multiple apps or play games with rich graphics. The dual-SIM smartphone runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow with Lenovo’s Pure UI skin which is closer to the pure Android feel.
The primary 13 MP camera comes with Phase Detection Auto Focus (PDAF) technology, which allows you to capture sharp, bright images even when the subject is moving. The 8MP front camera has a 77-degree wide-angle, so you don’t have to squeeze in too much while clicking a selfie with your friends.
Using the Secure Zone feature of the phone, you can use the K5 note as two separate virtual devices. What does this mean to you? Well, you can run two instances of the same application, say WhatsApp or Facebook, using the Secure Zone feature. The Data Isolation function protects your personal data – pictures, videos, audios or other media.
The price band of the Vibe K5 note suggests that it will give a tough competition to Xiaomi Redmi Note 3, LeEco’s Le 2, and Moto G4 Plus. The Vibe K5 Note has several features to edge it ahead in this race: the extra RAM, TheatreMax technology, the VR headset support, and the Dolby Atmos sound system. Keeping these features in mind, we would give this Lenovo device a rating of 9 on a scale of 1 to 10.
