One of the veterans of the Chinese phone making industry has recently launched a budget-friendly 64-bit phablet in youthful colors.
Black has always been an elegant color (or noncolor, if we are to believe the artists), but it’s also very sober, something that explains why it’s not a popular choice for gadgets among youngsters. Before sliding into your pocket a businessy black smartphone, maybe you should reconsider your color preferences and budget, and go for a more affordable device, in the form of the Lenovo K3 Note.
Lenovo didn’t include a fingerprint scanner in the K3 Note, and NFC isn’t present either. Some may argue that such features are a must, especially at this product’s price point, but that doesn’t mean that the K3 Note lacks appeal.
At first, this phablet might look a bit bulky, with corners that are just slightly rounded, but the design should go well with the younger crowd. Dominating the front is a 5.5″ Full HD IPS display with a 401ppi pixel density. The resolution and, consequently, the pixel density, are some of the aspects that set this phablet apart from most of the other 5.5-inch smartphones powered by the same chipset.
Under the hood, the K3 Note includes a 64-bit Mediatek MT6752 SoC with an octa-core CPU clocked at 1.7Ghz and a Mali T760 GPU, along with 2GB of RAM and 16 of ROM, for storing and running multiple apps.
The back of the device sports a 13MP dual LED flash camera, while the front has a 5MP one. Also in the back is the grill for the external speaker, which is placed in the oddest of places: towards the right side, opposite the camera. As far as the camera app is concerned, Lenovo is known to make one of the finest out there, and I’m sure the K3 Note will not disappoint from this point of view.
On the software side of things, the K3 Note features Android 5.0 Lollipop, with the company’s own UI on top, Lenovo Vibe 2.5.
Lenovo K3 Note is sold by GearBest for $165.98, provided that you apply the coupon code LK3NOTE at checkout. Both the yellow and the white versions are available, so you can get to match the phone with your personality.
