Features, Performance, and Reviews for the Lenovo K5

The camera function of Lenovo K5

The Lenovo K5 has a 13 MP main camera that lets you take photos and videos in a quite high resolution. You may be a little dissatisfied with it in some situations, for example when you want to capture scenery in very high resolution or print out beautiful photos, but this should not be an issue you run into very often.

The Lenovo K5 comes with a 8 MP pixel camera, which is a standard level. It's perfectly fine for selfies, but may be not as satisfying if you wish to take photos of large numbers of people, or make printouts.

The battery performance of Lenovo K5

The Lenovo K5 has a relatively large battery with 3000mAh.The Lenovo K5 has a good battery life compared to other smartphones. You won't feel stressed even if you spend all day surfing the web or on Twitter and you can also watch videos or play games on the go without having to worry too much about the battery. If you watch videos or play games for too long, however, you might want to watch your battery a bit.

The CPU performance of Lenovo K5

The processing power of the Lenovo K5 is, at 1.5GHz+1.0GHz×8(OctaCore), relatively high. Its features would position it somewhere between high and mid-level among currently available smartphones, but it will be rather stress-free in terms of using most apps. Most 3D games that don't burn up too much memory should be playable to a satisfying degree for the most part. 2D games should be no problem at all.

The Lenovo K5 has 3GB of RAM, so it has plenty of space. In rare cases this amount of RAM might not be sufficient, but there shouldn't be too much stress on the machine with this amount.

The Lenovo K5 has the overall operating speed of a high-end smartphone, so it will hardly ever cause you trouble. But you might need to be careful when using heavy apps like 3D games a lot.

Lenovo K5's storage capacity

The Lenovo K5 has 32GB of data storage, which is plenty for taking photos, but for people who frequently shoot videos or have lots of games installed, this may not feel like enough space.

Since the Lenovo K5 is compatible with SD cards, you'll be able to easily expand your storage capacity; you won't need to worry about how much internal space it has.

Lenovo K5's size

The Lenovo K5 is 28.6 in (72.7 mm) wide, 60.6 in (153.8 mm) tall, and 3.1 in (7.8 mm) thick.I can just barely use it with one hand, so it may feel big to some people.In the case of the Lenovo K5, it weighs about 5.6 oz (160 g).The weight is such that it's hardly noticeable even when using one-handed. However, some people may find it tiring to use for long periods.

In giving an overall rating to the Lenovo K5, while it may be slightly difficult to hold, it shouldn't be much of a problem when considering its general strengths and weaknesses.

Lenovo K5's screen

The Lenovo K5 has a 5.7 inch screen.The smartphone has a large, impressive screen, which allows you to enjoy photos and videos to the fullest. It is also very good for writing business documents and doing other work.

The resolution of the Lenovo K5's screen is pretty much standard. It shouldn't be a problem for normal use, but it might prove to be a bit dissatisfying for those who wish to better enjoy their photos, videos, or games.

Overall assessment of Lenovo K5

The Lenovo K5 is a relatively high-performance smartphone. If you plan to use it as your main smartphone, you may find it slightly inconvenient, but within tolerable limits.
