Reviews for the Lenovo K8 Plus

85% Lenovo K8 Plus Review: Definitely a Generation Ahead
Source: Tech PP English
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.

78% Lenovo K8 Plus review: A surprisingly capable no-nonsense budget phone
Source: India Today English
The Lenovo K8 Plus is not a particularly exciting smartphone but it does not really need to be. It is a solid, no-nonsense budget phone that provides great value for money. The K8 Plus does not light the world on fire in any one particular area. However, it ticks all the right boxes with its great battery life, fast and fluid software and decent Full HD display. The above average rear cameras are just icing on the cake.

Lenovo K8 Plus review: A decent performer with some room for improvement!
Source: The Mobile Indian English
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.

70% Lenovo K8 Plus Review: A good performer in the budget range
Source: Gadget Show English
If there's one thing a consumer looks for in this segment, then it is value-for-money. The Lenovo K8 Plus is a powerful device considering its price tag and is certainly better than a lot of its competitors. It offers smooth performance, amazing battery life and handles multitasking with consummate ease. Add to it, the responsive fingerprint sensor, an impressive camera and solid gaming experience, the K8 Plus checks most boxes. The design and the display could have been better, but they won't put you off from buying the device. Lenovo just might have done what Walt Disney said in his quote -- get it right.

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

Lenovo K8 Plus Review – A recommendable compact phone
Source: Gadget Diary English
Priced at 10,999 INR, the Lenovo K8 Plus has a powerful chipset, long lasting battery and a good set of cameras playing to its advantage. There just aren’t many compact phones available for around 10K, and If you are looking for one, the K8 Plus is definitely worth considering.

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.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.


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.


78.2%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
