After the massive success of A6000, Lenovo, the renowned PC manufacturer, started showing some keen interest in Indian smartphone market. The company which was once known for PCs and computer peripherals made it in India, and in a short span, it grew to the top with prolific sale volumes!
During this short period, the Chinese giant launched many phones which made a strong impact against leading players.K3 Note was the best among all, and it was just sheer brilliance from Lenovo that even today, after six months of its launch, the handset has huge demand in the market!
Well now, it’s time for the“big brother” to do exactly what K3 Note did. Lenovo has launched Vibe K4 Note in India, expecting it to take down several mid-ranged phones with powerful innards. Though it’s a lot to ask from a budget phone, it will be really interesting to see how far K4 Note goes against players like Mi4, OnePlus X, and Asus ZenFone in the game.The phone incorporates stupendous specifications with “extreme” multimedia capabilities, but will it be good enough? Find out below-:
A design like no other
Lenovo K4 Note is the only budget phone which features a metallic frame and a fingerprint sensor on the rear panel. The device flaunts a nice look and feel, and fits perfectly in one hand with a plastic rear panel enriched with soft-touch matte finish. The metallic frame on the sides has a decent Chrome-like finish, which does look majestic and complements the entire form-factor of the device.On whole, the sides and the rear panel add a lot to the aesthetics and make a great first impression right away.
K4 Note ships in Black colour, but the best part is, despite housing a humongous battery, it tips on the scale just at 9.2mm and weighs around 158 grams. The fingerprint sensor placed on the back is also very impressive. Lenovo has taken several design cues from Motorola, and at last, has given a fast, snappy, and easy to reach sensor for advanced biometric security!
Display and Visual Experience
Along with a stunning form-factor, K4 Note stands out with a prolific visual experience as well. The dual SIM phone ships with advanced Theater Max Technology, and is an ideal choice for multimedia lovers. According to Lenovo, Theater Max, powered by the new AntVR-Kit, gives an enlarged and immersive experience of what’s being played on the 5.5-inch full HD IPS of K4 Note. From games to movies, it gives the touch of big-screen for everything and is just amazing!
However, this does not mean that the display of K4 Note is any weak. The AntVR bundle is an improvement for multimedia-savvy users, while the standalone display of the device is a perfect fit for standard users. It features 401 pixels per inch, and is further protected with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 for keeping scratches and damages at bay!
Like always, Lenovo continues its good run by offering stupendous innards with its latest flagship. This time, the entire package iseven better as K4 Note incorporates Media Tek’s latest MT6753 Octa-core chipset clocked at 1.3GHz coupled with Mali-T720MP3 GPU. This processor is the successor of MT6752 SoC that came with K3 Note, and is stronger than ever, due to the support of 3GB RAM. Yes, that’s the big surprise the company held under the wraps, a whopping 3GB of RAM! It’s kind of interesting that a phone priced so effectively has something like 3GB of RAM. It’s insanely powerful, and is good enough to handle moderate as well as heavy usage all day long.
Superb Camera Output
Apart from a few tweaks here and there, there’s nothing new in the cameraof Lenovo K4 Note.The Chinese giant sticks to the same 13-megapixel f/2.2 phase detection autofocus rear camera and 5-megapixel front facing snapper that it offered with K3 Note. Though it manages decent frames with reduced noise and perfect shutter speed, many K4 Note users still feel disappointed that the low light capabilities of the handset are still not at par with devices like Mi4i and Motorola Moto G3! Overall, the camera is quite good in our opinion, at least for daylight photography.
Adequate power-backup is something which we all expect from a “perfect” budget phone. It’s an essential element but is not seen commonly as most good phones with powerful specs fall apart due to smaller battery support. Fortune for us, this is not the case with K4 Note. Our power-packed handset accommodates a humongous 3300 mAh battery, and offers more than enough power for continuous work and play. It easily handles moderate and heavy usage requirements with perfection, and manages to keep things up and running even after a long day at work or at home!
Along with mind-boggling specs, the price tag given to Lenovo K4 Note makes it one of the best budget packages of the year 2016. The standalone price of the Lollipop based handset is Rs. 11,999, and if you’re purchasing AntVR bundle priced at Rs. 1,299 as well, the entire package will cost you just Rs. 12,499. So, by spending a few more bucks, you can also have Lenovo VR kit, which already priced fairly!
With a stunning set of specs and a tempting price bracket, Lenovo K4 Note makes one of the best multimedia handsets of the year. This device caters the need of gamer’s and movie-buffs with perfection, and endows a picture-perfect cinema-like viewing experience with its all-new TheaterMax technology.When bundled with the AntVR kit, the entire package goes better than ever!
So, if you’re shopping for powerful budget phone with good specs and stunning audio-video quality, try out the new K4 Note, which is exclusively available via Amazon India. You’ll have to register yourself for the flash sale of the device, but that’s not a matter of concern. The sale is scheduled every Wednesday, and you can easily grab it via Amazon app or website.
