Lenovo has gone for quality materials for the build on the K8 Note with a rounded metal frame and premium materials throughout.

The Lenovo K8 Note is packing a decacore processor, not so common on smartphones yet, and 4GB RAM and all that oomph is obvious when you use the phone. Performance is excellent with apps firing up super quick and running multiple apps is easy for this phone.


The new generation fingerprint sensor unlocks the phone in just 0.3 seconds and the Android 7.1.1 OS is free from add-ons as Lenovo has opted to leave it as is.


The K8 Note works with VR headsets so you can use it with TheaterMax for widescreen movies or play VR games.

The big 5.5-inch display is superb for watching videos and with Dolby Atmos support the audio quality is excellent too. Lenovo have added a Music Key which can be pressed to pause, play and skip music tracks.


The K8 Note has a 64GB user memory and there is a microSD card slot for adding another 128GB so you get plenty of room for your photos and files.


The battery is a 4,000mAh power pack and there is a 15w rapid charger in the box so you can quickly recharge the phone. The battery gives a good mixed usage time with up to 15 days of standby time and up to 24 hours of talk time.

The Note K8 has a dual camera which consists of a 13-megapixel PureCel Plus Sensor and a 5-megapixel depth sensing lens. This configuration allows for some great photo effects which were fun to play with and produced some excellent shots.


Depth Mode allows you to blur the background of the pictures and you can select bokeh effects and see them in real time. Post shot editing offers up a whole slew of options including the option to mix the colour effects using parts of the black and white 5-megapixel shot and the colour 13-megapixel one.


The front camera is a decent 13-megapixel resolution so you can take great selfies and it includes Beauty Mode and Party Flash.




The Lenovo K8 Note is impressive from all angles and the camera functionality is superb, the standout is the performance thanks to the beefy processor. Whether this device could compete against Samsung’s Galaxy Note 8 is something we shall have to see once the devices sales figures are in.
