Reviews for the Lenovo K8 Note

Lenovo K8 Note Review
Source: Yugatech English
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
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

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.

70% Lenovo K8 Note review: Great dual rear camera, standout performance
Source: The Indian Express English
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?

75% Lenovo K8 Note review: Two steps forward, one step back
Source: India Today English
The Lenovo K8 Note is a step in the right direction for Lenovo. Ditching Vibe UI for stock Android was the best thing the company could have done. The K8 Note is a device which is built well, looks great, is fairly fast, comes with stock Android and has a pretty decent primary rear camera.

Source: Gadget Show English
With the K8 Note, Lenovo has tried hard to satisfy those who need a bit of everything ranging from a decent display, impressive processor, great camera performance and a considerable battery life. The smartphone could be a go-to device for those who want a multimedia device in at a budget price tag. The 3GB RAM+32GB version is priced at Rs 12,999, while the 4GB RAM+64GB storage version is priced at Rs 13,999.

80% Lenovo K8 Note Review
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
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.

Lenovo K8 Note First Impressions: The real Redmi Note 4 killer?
Source: The Mobile Indian English
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.

86% Lenovo K8 Note Review: A Killer, in Price and in Deed
Source: Tech PP English
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.

This display is quite big for a smartphone but frequently used for smartphones.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Lenovo: Lenovo ( "Le" as in the English word legend and "novo" (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company. From 2004, the company has been the largest laptop manufacturer in China and got the fourth largest manufacturer worldwide after the acquisition of IBM's PC division in 2005. In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company also produces monitors, projectors, servers, etc.

In 2011, Lenovo acquired the majority of Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer. In 2014, Lenovo took over Motorola Mobility, which gave them a boost in the smartphone market.

From 2014 to 2016 Lenovo's market share in the global notebook market was 20-21%, ranking second behind HP. However, the distance decreased gradually. In the smartphone market, Lenovo did not belong to the Top 5 global manufacturers in 2016.

77.33%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
