Reviews for the Lenovo K9

70% Lenovo K9 Review: Good design, display and cameras
Source: The Indian Express English
Lenovo K9 seems to be an overall winner at this price point with good design, display and cameras. The device looks and feels premium. However, performance in heavy duty gaming, editing images can be a challenge. Still considering the positives, Lenovo K9 is still a pretty decent offering at the price.

70% Lenovo K9 Review
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
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.

Lenovo K9 First Impressions: Will it change company’s fate?
Source: The Mobile Indian English
The new smartphone from Lenovo comes loaded with a host of interesting features. The four cameras look promising and the design gives a premium feel from all angles. The performance is yet to be tested out, though the software looks neat and clean. As for the competition is concerned, the phone will face a stiff competition with the likes of Realme 2, Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1, Nokia 3.1 Plus and Xiaomi Redmi 6.

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.
