Android 7 Nougat and Upgradable to Android Oreo

Powerful Battery

While fast charging seems great, they sometimes have an effect of the battery capacity. This is not the case with the Lenovo K8 Plus as it came with a non-removable 4000mAh battery that guarantees long-lasting usage. Be rest assured of getting more than 24 hours battery life after a single charge to 100%, that is when used moderately.




Dedicated Music Button

Lenovo brought a whole new feature to the music front with the Lenovo K8 Plus, this is by introducing a dedicated music button feature. Though the primary function of the button is to control music on play (such as play, pause and changing of tracks), it also has a dedicated settings in the menu and can be used to perform some secondary tasks like screenshots, open desired app by long pressing and turning on flash light.


Comparing the price of the Lenovo K8 Plus with its specs and features, it will be very difficult to fish out a particular cons or disadvantage. But just to satisfy the urge of lovers of fast charging battery lovers, I will say the omission of fast charging technology is the only cons of the K8 Plus. It is definitely one of the best buy budget smartphone you can find in the market with its price range.
