The release of Lenovo K5 Note was in January of 2016. Due to the fact that it is relatively new, alot of sellers in Kenya have increased its price by unreasonable amount.
The full specifications are also provided plus a detailed review of the K5 Note.
The best price of the Lenovo K5 Note is Kshs 20,000.
In the department of ram, there are two options available, a 3GB variant and a 4GB version.
Both these options are suitable and you can purchase any of them. Games run smoothly and switching between apps is just a breeze.
Purchasing any of the variants takes you to being over the market standard because right now, 2GB is the norm.
Having two sim cards in Kenya is a must have for anyone. One sim card is usually for data and the other one is for receiving and sending money.
I usually don’t call but when I do I use, orange or Airtel because I find the service providers cheaper.
Another big advantage of the Lenovo k5 Note is that it comes with 4G. This enables faster data speeds and video streaming if the bundles are available.
Currently, only Safaricom offers 4G services in Kenya but we are hoping others internet service providers will follow suit.
With 32 GB of internal memory and a memory card slot, this phone does not suffer in the department of storage.
You can take several quality photos using the 13MP primary camera and you won’t worry about running out of space on your K5 Note Lenovo Phone.
The 1080 by 1920 pixels screen resolution displays crisp and clear videos and photos. While buying any phone, you should ensure that the screen resolution is high enough to enable you to have a good user experience while using the phone.
Another big advantage of the phone is that it has a removable battery.
Swapping out batteries when the other runs dry is therefore possible for those who like having phone a spare phone battery like I do.
However, with a 3500mAh battery capacity, you won’t have to worry about charging your phone until the end of the day.
Finally, the screen size is 5.5 inches. Personally I prefer a maximum screen size of 5 inches but people are unique and singular.
In fact, I have friends who swear they cannot go back to having a 5 inch smartphone after moving to a larger screen. I usually find carrying a big phone is a big inconvenience unless you have very buggy clothes, or the pockets are deep.
For the ladies, you don’t have to worry about this because you always have your handbags.
