Lenovo K3 Note Express Review: A disruptive budget smartphone

Lenovo has been aggressively pushing itself into the mobile space with a plant in Wuhan, China that can manufacture 30 to 40 million devices a year. With K900, Lenovo gained traction with its unique stainless steel unibody design in India. Now Lenovo aims to bring some unique propositions to top range smartphone to sub-10k phone. But with the space already dominated by the likes of home-grown players like Micromax and newer Chinese rivals like Xiaomi, can Lenovo make an impact? Lenovo K3 Note Lenovo K3 Note is Lenovo’s first offering in the online only range of smartphones. With K3 Note, Lenovo is trying to set a new benchmark for sub-10k devices. With the K series, Lenovo is focusing on high-quality specs but at an attractive price. Specs: 5.5-inch (1080x1920p, ~401 ppi) LCD display | Octa-core 1.7 GHz Mediatek MT6592 processor | 2GB RAM | 16GB storage (expandable up to 32GB) | 13MP rear camera + 5MP front | Li-Ion 3000 mAh battery | Android Lollipop OS –

Our review unit features a black front and white back. This design feels less obstructive than the yellow back version. Lenovo K3 Note feels extremely solid in hands even though it doesn’t feature any metal element. The device feels extremely large because of its 5.5-inch display and a screen to body ratio of 71.7% but at 8mm, it’s surprisingly slim for its size. Lenovo K3 Note is basically a rectangular piece of hardware with no curves that will fit into your hands well. The back panel is user replaceable and gives access to dual SIM slots, SC card slot and a removable 3,000 mAh battery. Below the display are Home, Back and Recent Apps buttons. Had Lenovo opted for Android’s on-screen buttons and thus shrunken the phone a little in dimension, it would have looked even better. The rear is home to 13MP camera placed at the top left hand corner (a traditional Lenovo fashion), below which is the dual LED flash. Also there are finely drilled speakers grills. Overall Lenovo K3 Note is nothing unique when it comes to design and is more about the specs. -
