Lenovo, a Chinese phone manufacturer, is really making waves in the smartphone market with the launch of its K series of smartphones. After the brand launched the k8 Note in the market, they went further in launching its toned down variant known as the Lenovo K8 Plus. The K8 Plus came with new innovations from the brand and it is for sure one of the best buy budget smartphone at the moment. In this post, you will get to see a brief review of the Lenovo K8 Plus specifications, revealing its pros and cons, then also the price you can easily buy it.
Lenovo K8 Plus Review: Features and Specifications Pros and Cons
Android 7 Nougat and Upgradable to Android Oreo
The Lenovo K8 Plus is the first smartphone coming from Lenovo that came with the stock Android operating system. The stock Android gave the K8 Plus and edge over other smartphones from the brand and it places it in the same category as Motorola smartphones. The Lenovo K8 Plus came with Android 7 Nougat operating system out-of-the-box and it has an assurance of getting the Android Oreo update as well. This is a big advantage if you are looking for an affordable smartphone that will be receiving the Android 8 Oreo update.
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.
