Lenovo's popular low-cost K-series has had a bit of an identity crisis over the past year. The popular low-cost K3 Note was succeeded by the Vibe K4 Note (Review), which didn't really fit into the same category, and then by the Vibe K5 Plus (Review), which was more of a return to K-series roots. Priced at just Rs. 8,500, the Vibe K5 Plus actually addresses a lower-cost section of the market than the Vibe K4 Note, and is a viable competitor to similarly priced devices from Xiaomi, Asus, Coolpad, Honor, and others.

Lenovo Vibe K5 Summary

The Lenovo Vibe K5 could be a good budget workhorse for those who don't need more than the basics. It looks good and has a surprisingly decent camera. Lenovo has cleaned up its software. The display could have been better, and we found viewing angles to be a slight problem. However, the low-power components result in decent battery life. If your budget can stretch just a little bit, you'll find the more powerful Vibe K5 Plus to be a better bet.

  • Average Mobile
    Rohit Kumar (Apr 2, 2016) on Gadgets 360
    I like all features but rear camera is too bad, I never guess lenovo will make us fool on the name of 13 MP camera. it is working like VGA, 2 or 1.3 MP camera. but other features are good as processing, look, front camera.

  • Nice phone... Great Graphics..... Good Battery.... But Don't expect camera as good as 13 MP of other brands
    Deepak D Patil Savkar (Jun 29, 2016) on Gadgets 360
    I Buyed from amazon 1st Flash sale...... Seems nice... first uninstall AcAfee Antivirus or Lenovo Vibe K5 will start heating too much without even touching it... Graphics are great... awesome Camera 3/5.... Sound 5/5 thanks for the Dolby Atmos... Great in this segment even better than Flagships... Battery life is just okay.... Almost 1 day with moderate use....... I will be back with detailed review after a week.... I'm expecting a Marshmallow update for the Lenovo Vibe K5....

  • Service & Support Problem with Lenovo
    Sanket Shah (Jun 22, 2016) on Gadgets 360
    Lenovo Phones specification are good, but there is big gap in Service and support. Even there department Service_ED is also not responding regarding issue. For e.g. you have submit your phone for repairing then, they take 1 month for any replacement and if we try chase via email then making false committing over email, still you want to looks then please visit consumer complaint you fill find lot of complaint. If company is not providing service & support then it is no meaning to purchase.

  • Poor network, missing basics but light weight and looks are better
    Bheru Singh (Jun 29, 2016) on Gadgets 360
    Afters 3-4 days of use: Very light weight and easy to handle_slim. Front camera is very nice and nice detailing. Rear camera is poor, picture quality is not good, less details. Battery backup is not up to the mark, but nice to have removable battery. ROM available: 9.7 GB, 5 GB is taken by system and 1.3 by other preinstalled apps etc. RAM available: 1.1 GB Network: poor (connectivity is very poor) switching from 4G to 3G is very poor many times call drops. Sound is clear but very low, on headset it is Ok. d
