Just a few short months after launching the impressive Vibe K4 Note (Review | Pictures) Lenovo has unveiled another low-cost phone called the Vibe K5 Plus. The new model, which launched in India before any other country, does not replace the popular K4 Note. In fact, priced at just Rs. 8,499, the K5 Plus is below the K4 Note in Lenovo's hierarchy. This awkwardness is apparently due to internal reshuffling as the company gears up to integrate Motorola's popular mid-budget offerings into its lineup.

Lenovo Vibe K5 Plus Summary

Lenovo's budget offering, the Vibe K5 Plus, looks great and offers the sort of premium feel you'd generally get from phones costing more. On the inside, its components are pretty average and performance matches expectations. We were pleasantly surprised by the powerful stereo speakers and the Dolby Atmos sound enhancement, which really works. The camera is serviceable but you'll need to pay attention to your shots or they'll come out unfocused. Battery life is too weak for our liking. On the whole, this is a decent enough budget phone for basic uses, but is easily overshadowed by models that cost just a little more.

  • Good not the best
    Akash (Jul 27, 2016) on Gadgets 360 Recommends
    I have been using this phone for more than a month..phone has good display,super ram management about 1gb ram always available,phone will work without any hiccups,this phone will receive marshmallow update as confirmed by lenovo,camera being good in its price range.only cons I found is battery backup. As said in the review standby is great but if you are a power user,you will left disappointed. With moderate usage you can squeeze out for about a day. If you can live with this issue definitely it is worth enough to be your phone

  • Worst battery backup
    Bedanta Thao Mung Lung (May 17, 2017) on Gadgets 360 Recommends
    Battery backup is very poor. Overheat problem on heavy use. Customizable setting is good, display is good, pretty ram, best part of this phone is great sound quality, no hanging issues, camera quality good in daylight in both sides, 4g speed good than other top brands but LTE supports only single sim slot, features are good in this price range excluding battery. I have been used this phone for 8 months.
