Reviews for the Lenovo K9

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.

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.

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.
