Lenovo previously have been reported on working at building smartphones for eight different sets of people, which vary of various categories (geography, age, usage, profession). Focusing on the needs of one such set, Lenovo recently launched the Lenovo K3 Note, in an event held at New Delhi, India. It boasted all the #Killer features such as the display, build quality, storage, camera, sound and battery. But, were they really killer? Find out what’s good on inside and outside of the Lenovo K3 Note.
I’m not really a fan of big displays, but after using the Lenovo K3 Note for a while, I did change my mind. The phablet not only comes with a 5.5-inch display, but it’s a full HD display. Which means, as soon as you unbox the device, there’ll be a 1920×1080 pixels (401ppi) screen staring at you. This is undoubtedly an amazing deal, in my opinion since it is the only device at this price point to offer a full HD display.
In a country like India, where the 4G LTE connectivity in its growing phase, people do need to start investing in the 4G LTE. The future proof phones, such as the dual-SIM Lenovo K3 Note supports both the bands in India, that is, FDD-LTE 1800MHz Band 3, and TDD-LTE 2300MHz Band 40. If you ask me, it is a big deal for a sub – Rs. 10,000 smartphone to offer such a wide range of connectivity.
Looking out for a decent performing smartphone within your limited budget, with storage enough to cater to your multimedia needs? You might want to consider the Lenovo K3 Note, in that case. At a 16GB internal storage, expandable to upto 32GB (thorough a microSD card), the K3 Note becomes a worthy competitor. Oh wait, didn’t I mention about the USB OTG support? Yes, 16GB of ROM, a microSD card of upto 32GB and the USB OTG support, what could’ve been better?
4. Operating System
Barring a few smartphones, the majority of the options under the sub – Rs. 10,000 category are working on Android KitKat or previous versions of Android. While at the same time, Lenovo K3 Note offer users the latest version, that is, Android Lollipop 5.0 right out of the box. So you can be sure of the Android M update in the near future in case you are planning to get this smartphone. The Lollipop operating system on this device is topped with the Vibe UI, personally speaking, which isn’t very impressive. But then, by using Lenovo’s own applications such as the Theme Store you can personalize the phone and give it a better look.
All the above features are worthless if the Lenovo K3 Note is priced at Rs. 15,000. isn’t it? But Lenovo isn’t Micromax (reference: Micromax Canvas 5 Silver pricing), so priced cleverly at Rs. 9,999 the K3 Note becomes a #Killer option for you to consider if you’re planning to go for a device under the sub Rs. 10,000 category. The price does add to the excitement when coupled with the features listed above. So for the interested ones, the Lenovo K3 Note goes on sale exclusive on Flipkart on July 8, with the registrations starting right away.
