Lenovo Vibe K5 Specification
Design and Look
The company has designed this phone to give a premium look to its customers and has been pretty much successful in doing so. The Lenovo Vibe K5 flaunts a complete metallic body with an exceptionally ergonomic configuration with round edges. This sleek design of the phone makes it easy to handle and use. The power button, as well as the sound buttons, are situated on the right side of this device while the charging port and sound jack is situated at the top. The SIM card and micro-SD slots are hidden behind the back panel.The front of the gadget comprises of three delicate keys and a 5MP camera. Whereas, at the back at 13 MP camera is present with LED flash and dual speakers. Although everything with regards to the look and design of the phone seems good, however, what I found to be a bit of a setback was no backlight for the buttons on-screen. Apart from this, the phone is cool to hold and use.
Touch and Display
Touch and Display In this fast growing competition getting a display of 720X1280 pixels at this price is surely amazing. This device which flaunts HD display offers good visibility beneath the sunlight and sharp reproduction of colours. This phone can impress the gaming geeks due to its wide viewing angles. Flaunting a 5-inch touch screen, this device has a quick response to the user touch. Not much space is wasted across the screen edges and hence this device can easily be used with a single hand.
This phone comes in two variants Lenovo Vibe K5 and Lenovo Vibe K5 Plus. Both the phones are almost similar, however; there are certain basic changes with regards to display and width. The K5 offers HD display at a resolution of 720X1280 pixels while K5 plus flaunts a FULL HD display of 1080X1920 pixels resolution. K5 plus is a bit sleek with a thickness of 7.9mm as compared to K5 with a thickness of 8.2 mm. Lenovo Vibe K5 and K5 plus are available in two colours i.e. Gold and Silver.
Like most of the smartphones released by the company Lenovo Vibe K5 runs on the custom Lenovo smartphones UI on top of Android 5.1. The UI does not have any app drawer and has numerous pre-installed applications. One of the USP of this device is that it supports ANT Virtual Reality Headset. Long pressing the power button will split the screen into two parts to help you use the smart phone in experiencing virtual reality. Other than that there are some basic pre-installed applications such as ‘Syncit’ which helps you to create backup of all your contacts, messages etc. However, there are very limited choices of themes available for the user to change and the device lags a bit when you install new applications.
This low budget Lenovo Vibe K5 smartphone comes with a powerful back camera of 13 megapixels and a decent selfie camera of 5 megapixels. Images produced using the front camera in the daylight were clear and a no pixilation was there, however, back camera produced a particular noise when images were clicked indoors. The camera mode offered by the phone is quick and offers numerous style of photography as present in other phones offered by Lenovo.
Lenovo Vibe K5 has been powered with 2750mAh of battery which keeps the 1080p of display and octa-core processor running smoothly. While the battery is sufficient to meet the whole day requirement of the customers having moderate usage, it fails in meeting the demand of gaming geeks. A battery of 3000mAh might have met the requirement of the game lovers. So in case you are a game lover you need to keep a power bank or charger handy.
