When it comes to affordability combined with impressive specs, Lenovo ranks among the leading device makers. The new Lenovo K3 Note looks like a device to further help the Chinese company cement its position in this segment. The impressive smartphone packs a massive Full HD display, powerful cameras, and an octa-core processor as well as Dolby Atmos Audio and LTE support.
Design and Display
Lenovo K3 Note showcases a somewhat basic design – it may not be the most premium or classy, but it doesn’t look awful either. The body, which has a thickness of 8 millimetres, is made of plastic with a matte finish at the back. Impressively, the phone crams in a 5.5-inch IPS display with a Full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels and a pixel density of 401 pixels per inch. That screen promises impressive clarity and great wide viewing angles of up to 178 degrees.
Camera and Storage
For your photography needs, you get a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera with f/2.0 aperture, 5-element lens and dual-LED flash on Lenovo K3 Note. The 5-megapixel front-facing Omnivision camera with f/2.2 aperture looks ready to produce some superior quality selfies. Lenovo provides generous 16 GB of onboard storage – similar to what you get on some more expensive offerings such as the new HTC One M9s. However, storage expansion with a microSD card is capped at 64 GB.
Performance and OS
Under the hood, Lenovo K3 Note is armed with an octa-core MediaTek MT6752 processor which runs along at speeds of up to 1.7 GHz. The 64-bit chip is paired with RAM of 2GB capacity to drive decent enough responsiveness and multitasking. The phablet boots Android 5.0 Lollipop operating system, which has Lenovo’s Vibe UI 2.0 user interface laid on top of it.
Sundry Specs and Features
The K3 Note is accompanied by a 2,900mAh Lithium-Ion battery, which Lenovo says will support up to 36 hours of continuous calls. The big smartphone’s multimedia credentials is further highlighted with the presence of Dolby Atmos Audio technology for rich sound when playing games or watching movies.
There is a dual-SIM feature to enable you use two SIM cards simultaneously. Lenovo K3 Note supports 4G LTE connectivity for lightning-fast mobile data speeds.
Lenovo K3 Note is listed on its maker’s Indian website at a price of 9,999 rupees, which converts to a price around N30,000 in Nigeria. To be honest, this smartphone represents great value at that price.
