Combination of steel and Intel
Source: Inside HW English Archive.org version
Lenovo K900 is a big device and it’s hard to use with only one hand, even though it’s really thin. If that’s not a problem, then it will have a lot to offer. Excellent quality of final processing and use of metal in both the construction and for the back side resulted in a very sturdy device that won’t fail to impress anyone.

Lenovo checks all the right boxes with the K4 Note, with its solid build quality, decent performance, and good battery life, and stands out from the competition with the great audio experience. The camera performance isn't particularly impressive, but that is a small price to pay, when considering the price you actually pay for this affordable smartphone.

Lenovo K8 Note Review
Source: Yugatech English Archive.org version
The K8 Note is the epitome of a hidden beauty. While its exterior experience may not get you all hyped up, its powerful internals will make you think twice. With just Php13,999, you’ll get a 13MP + 5MP dual rear cam, a MediaTek Helio X23 deca-core processor, a 4GB RAM, a Dolby Atmos audio, and a 4000mAh battery. We can say that this device is truly a knockout despite its flaws.

Lenovo K8 Note Quick Review: Another Mid-Range Contender Emerges
Source: Unbox English Archive.org version
The Lenovo K8 Note has a metal body that gives the device a premium feel despite its price tag. No clever way to hide its antennas, instead they’ve gone with plastic on the top and bottom of the device. The phone has curved edges and corners to make it easier to hold the hand though it does feel a little thicker than most phones we’ve been handling recently. The body of the K8 Note is splashproof so, while it cannot be fully submerged, at least it’ll be protected from accidental spills.

Lenovo K8 Note Review
Source: Fone Arena English Archive.org version
Overall, the Lenovo K8 Note is a worthy successor to the K6 Note starting at Rs. 12999 for the 3GB RAM with 32GB storage version, but the 4GB RAM with 64GB storage version is just Rs. 1000 more. It has dedicated SIM slots, comes with splash-resistant coating and has stock Android, but there are some downsides such as quick battery drain on standby and occasional heating issues. Hope these can be fixed through updates. Dual camera implementation is fine, but the overall image quality is average and could have been better.

Lenovo K8 Note Review

The Lenovo K8 Note is pretty much just right for its pricing, the smartphone is fairly decent. With a splash resistant design, dual rear cameras, fast 10-core processing power, a 13 MP selfie camera aided by LED flash, latest Android software, and a 4,000 mAh battery that is capable of surviving up to 2 days is certainly a lookout. This could be a worthy upgrade for K6 Note users. For others with a budget of ₹15,000 can go for the Lenovo K8 Note if rear camera is not their primary need.

Source: The Indian Express English Archive.org version
The Lenovo K8 Note is no revolutionary product, but it’s a smartphone that feels just right. In my opinion, this is the most mature product Lenovo has ever come up with in this price range. The things that really make the K8 Note stand out are its display, stock Android, superb performance, a dual-camera setup. The design isn’t great, though. But then again every smartphone has a flaw, right?

The Lenovo K8 Note starts at Rs. 12,999 for the 3GB RAM /32GB storage model while our unit with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage has been priced at Rs. 13,999. At these prices, the Lenovo K8 Note is a great overall package, and brings a lot to the table including stock Android, dual cameras, TheaterMax, and solid build quality. That said, there are few negatives. Battery life isn't the best in the segment, and the heating issue may concern you. The low-light camera results leave a lot to be desired as well. Thankfully, the highly marketed dual camera feature works well.

To conclude, the Lenovo K8 Note is quite an interesting device. The dual-camera setup and the stock Android experience surely adds some brownie points. However, it would be interesting to see the performance of the device and the fact that will it be able to kill the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4, which is one of the most popular options available at this price point.

Source: Tech PP English Archive.org version
If we had to give the K8 Note a dollar for every time it impressed us; we would have been broke by now. At Rs 13,999 for the 4GB RAM/64GB ROM combination, the Lenovo K8 Note definitely comes across as one of the major contenders in its price band. The smartphone has pretty much hit a home run on most of the strikes – the camera, the UI, the multimedia performance, the overall performance…we would not be exaggerating to say that the Lenovo K8 Note has just set a new benchmark for its competition. And it is some pretty stiff competition: the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4, the Honor 6X and even its own brother from another mother, the Moto G5 Plus. We have a word of advice for every phone that is priced in the vicinity of the K8 Note. Be worried. Be VERY worried. For, there’s a Killer Note in town.

85% Lenovo K8 Plus Review: Definitely a Generation Ahead
Source: Tech PP English Archive.org version
The K8 Plus had pretty big shoes to fill after the success of K6 Power and the responsibility went up another level because the company has skipped one generation. But we think the K8 Plus has hit the nail right on the head. The price of the device starts at Rs 10,999 (Rs 11,999 for the 4 GB RAM version), and it offers everything and more that you can expect from a smartphone at this price. The phone offers a good camera, great battery life decent performance, and a smooth stock Android experience. The K8 Plus has definitely got the Plus factor which can be a little problematic for its competition. Ranged against it are the likes of the Redmi Note 4, the Micromax Canvas Infinity (with its 18:9 aspect display) and the Honor 6X (if one is looking at dual cameras). But it says something for the K8 Plus that it stands tall amongst them all.

To sum up, the Lenovo K8 Plus turns out of being a decent smartphone and with a price tag of Rs 11,999, the smartphone can be considered as a good alternative of the most popular Xiaomi Redmi Note 4. However, the company really need to work on the brightness settings, which we hope will get fixed a future update. The camera is again decent if not great and the overall performance is quite satisfactory. So, if you are looking for a smartphone under Rs 12,000, then this can be a good option.

Lenovo is aiming for popularity by choosing stock Android and balancing features and cost quite well. The Lenovo K8 Plus is well equipped and manages day-to-day tasks really well. Battery life is good enough to take you through more than a single day of use. There is enough storage for average buyers, and the dedicated microSD card slot does not force you to choose between a second SIM and additional storage. Dual cameras are an attractive feature right now too. Camera performance could have been better in landscape mode, but there have to be some tradeoffs with budget phones. If stock Android and good battery life appeal to you, then the Lenovo K8 Plus does look like a good choice.

The main appeal of the Lenovo K9 will be its four cameras — two on the front and two on the rear. However, photo quality isn't this phone's strongest suit. It gave us surprisingly weak results in daylight. We hope that some improvements can be made with software updates, because a lot of people are likely to be disappointed otherwise. Other than that, this quite an attractive phone. We don't think there's any real need for a notch or super-narrow borders, and Lenovo has found a good balance between features and portability.

Our K12 Note review shows just how much Lenovo wants to match POCO’s crazy budget offering, and the K12 Note just did that. While the majority of the specs are identical, Lenovo makes up for it with more camera features, stock Android, and slightly faster charging speeds. While its low-light performance is so-so at best even when using Night Vision, there’s still plenty of room for improvement through software updates–Lenovo has been keeping the K12 Note updated with the latest security updates.

Lenovo K13 Note Review, Pros and Cons
Source: OI Spice Tech News English
The Lenovo K13 Note is without a doubt one of the best value-added smartphones in the entry-level segment. With this device, you will get state-of-the-art camera features even at an affordable price. But, the main selling point would be the huge battery life and the simple interface settings. However, if you’re looking for an immersive viewing experience, you might be a little disappointed. But on the other hand, the general features and functions won’t disappoint your desire for a lightweight Android phone with a little camera tweak. However, there is no news in particular about the launch in the global market. If you like heavy customization with lots of features, you can also look for Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 smartphone as a better alternative for you.

Intel Atom: The Intel Atom series is a 64-Bit (not every model supports 64bit) microprocessor for cheap and small notebooks (so called netbooks), MIDs, or UMPCs. The speciality of the new architecture is the "in order" execution (instead of the usual and faster "out of order" execution). Therefore, the transistor count of the Atom series is much lower and, thus, cheaper to produce. Furthermore, the power consumption is very low. The performance per Megahertz is therfore worse than the old Pentium 3M (1,2 GHz on par with a 1.6 GHz Atom).

Z2580: Soc with integrated dual core Atom processor clocked at 1.3 - 2 GHz (short bursts), a PowerVR SGX 544MP2 based GPU clocked at 400 MHz and a dual channel LPDDR2 memory controller.
