Lenovo is already a well know producer of technology, and you’re likely familiar with the brand in the laptop world. Thing is, it doesn’t just deal in computers and in Asian markets it has a bustling smartphone business.
The Lenovo K5 is a rebadged Vibe K5 Plus from Lenovo’s Eastern activities and boasts a 5-inch display, octa-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal space, 13MP rear camera, 5MP front camera, 2,750mah removable battery and Dolby Atmos speakers.
Lenovo finds itself in a tricky position. Sure the K5 is a decent budget handset, but it’s not a brand name people in the UK associate with mobiles. It’s likely to be overlooked as people’s eyes land on more familiar territory. Motorola and Samsung are safer bets.
That said, the K5 does offer more premium design than many of its peers, and if you can get over Lenovo’s interface then you may well enjoy this low cost option.
