Lenovo Vibe K5 is meant to be a very reasonably priced handset in the Indian market, it comes with a price tag of Rs. 8,499. The handset was announced back in April 2016. This handset is especially meant for the youth community of India looking for their first smartphone, or for anyone who needs an upgrade from the previous entry-level handset they already have. The Lenovo Vibe K5 isn’t really very high end, but it’s certainly not entry-level either.
The Lenovo Vibe K5 handset comes with a 1.5 GHz CPU underneath its plastic chassis, and the tasks are backed up by a 2 GB RAM. Multitasking is pretty good and very much likeable, fluid performance never seemed to deteriorate during our hands-on test.
With rich and vibrant color output, the 5 inch display on the Lenovo Vibe K5 is certainly a deal-breaker for its price. The resolution on this display is 720×1280 pixels, and pixel density is 294 ppi – almost very sharp.
The Lenovo Vibe K5 smartphone has 2 cameras, 13 megapixel as the primary shooter and 5 megapixel in front as the secondary shooter. Both cameras take decent photos in ambient lighting situation, even in dimly lit places the performance had been impressive so far.
On-board storage on the Lenovo Vibe K5 is 16 GB and a larger percentage of that is taken up by the Android operating system. However, the rest of the space could be used for user files, and for more memory needs there’s an external card slot.
Standard Connectivity Options
The Lenovo Vibe K5 comes with all standard connectivity options but NFC. Being a mid-range handset, the NFC chip could actually have made a good use.
