Exciting times for the Indian Mobile phone users whose budget range is around 10K as there are many brands that are dropping their rates and coming under the 10K umbrella, to woo them. Here the new entrant is the Lenovo K3 Note that seems interesting to me mainly for its improvised specs fare – the cheapest Smartphone in existence boasting HD display.
Meet the Lenovo K3 Note – Rs 9,999. Lenovo’s K3 Note is the latest to jump onto the flash sale bandwagon.
Available on Flipkart, the K3 Note sports a 5.5-inch Full HD display with 1080 x 1920 pixels of resolution, with a pixel density that goes up to 401ppi.
It supports 4G and runs Android 5.0 Lollipop on its own Vibe UI.
Under the screen, it is powered by a massively powerful 64-bit 1.7GHz octa-core MediaTek MT6572 processor coupled with 2GB of RAM.
The specifications are almost similar to the recently launched Meizu m1 note.
On the camera front, the K3 Note comes with a 13-megapixel rear camera with dual-LED flash and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera.The 16GB on-board internal storage is expandable up to 32GB via microSD card.
The connectivity options include 4G (TD-LTE/ LTE), Wi-Fi, GPS/ A-GPS and Bluetooth.
It comes powered with a 3000mAh battery – however its working capacity is 2900mAh. Remember to let the battery drain upto 10% and then charge, each time. This will allow the battery will be able to calibrate itself.
Apart from these the Lenovo K3 Note features:
- proximity sensor (to switch a call on when placed near the ear)
- gravity sensor (to rotate screen automatically)
- light sensor (to auto decrease/increase the screen brightness)
- anti-gyroscope (to sense the tilting of phone to prevent accidental rotation of the screen)
- electronic compass (for Maps and navigation)
There is no earphone bundled with this so I suggest Skullcandy to experience the Dolby sound of the K3 – its zero noise and pure bass feature makes the music feel great. Moreover Skullcandy is the best earphone available and affordable too!
Lenovo has also added USB OTG that allows you to directly connect external storage to the smartphone, this is actually a good proposition for a smartphone at this price.
Bottomline – The looks are exactly like the A7000 and you also get same Dolby Atmos sound enhancement on the device as well as 4G connectivity. However you get a 1080p full HD display compared to the 720p HD display, 16GB of storage rather than 8GB, an upgraded 13MP rear camera along with a 5MP front camera. So choose this one over the A7000.
