  • Great Phone - well worth the price

    I see a lot of users on here commenting on the camera quality. Seriously, for the price the camera is fine. Sure its not gonna be as good as a flagship but you cant afford a flagship so stop complaining. Another user commented that it crashes all the time and he cannot be heard on the phone. I have not seen either of these things happening. Rom is solid, Excellent battery life - normally lasts me 2 days or more. Antutu I got 150k - not sure how it only get 115k here. This is a much better phone than anything from Samsung or other manufacturer in this price range. Take a chance and try it. So far I have been pretty happy with it. Mine is the 4g/64g version.

  • Good phone for it's price

    The daily use is very smooth, demanding games drain the battery like crazy. Avarege build quality, but without any drop it has a little give on the bottom part, like if its not good glued or something.
    And the 6Gb ram seems to not offer good price for money... The phone closes the background apps even with developer mode especifying to let it running.

  • Bad smartphone, don't recommend. Add more money and buy something better.

    - No updates, no support, no phone protections against ANYTHING, one fall - no phone.
    - Bugged ROM, bad quality, freezing time to time, no official updates at all, and never will be.
    - Impossible to install anything from GSI, because vendor bugged as heck.
    - Very bad camera, super bad, g.cam helps a little bit, but the camera awful
    - Dozens of microphone issues
    - Weak wifi, 1 wall - no wifi.
    - brightness very bad on a sunny day.
    - Bugs with turning off 4g, and background apps, very big battery drain.
    - Awful sounding, really bad and annoying, changes the Frequency Response of songs.
    - Tons of reports from my friends, or family that they can't hear me many times per day.
    - The smartphone does not worth your attention at all, even for this money.
    - Impossible to play in games, PUBG - very low settings with lags and stuttering.

    • good ram and rom
    • 2 frontal cameras + 2 back cameras
    • Very good battery life more than one day 4050 mAh
    • No notches, no water drop. no Bulls** design.

  • Lenovo somewhat disappointed me on this one.

    Lenovo k5 pro tries to offer a lot for a great price but unfortunately it has issues.
    It will do the basics but there are bugs, defects and since the security update is from October i doubt Lenovo will support the phone at all.
    The top speaker that doubles for music and phone calls is defective and hisses. My guess is, due to its small size, it struggles during music reproduction.
    Also, the global rom is very basic. I noticed some animation issues during loading which cannot be fixed or refreshed unless formatting the phone.

  • Quite powerful device for the reasonable price. Weak camera though, but I can live without it. Definitely not for gamers.

    For the price and range that it is, it is a very good mobile, at the height of a good Xiaomi and a Samsung

    Why make mistakes knowing that the mobile costs what it costs, I have not found a mobile even with the price it has, with its characteristics and with its daily operation. Knowing what a mobile has to do, (I do not play) I am old, I give it a 9.5 why some other things could have been touched and also because it has no system updates. I love it <3

Ki Cost-effective
Not available
What is a Ki score?
Ki is an automatic score based on the specifications and prices of devices. It is calculated using over 200 variables to rank smartphones, tablets and other devices from best to worst.
How do we calculate the Ki?

In this case, to determine the score we evaluate 5 general aspects:

  • Design and screen
  • Hardware and performance
  • Camera
  • Connectivity
  • Battery

Once these 5 factors have been rated, we introduce the price variable. This means that any two devices with the same ratings get a different Ki score for quality vs price.

Even a device objectively worse than another may have a higher Ki score if it has a better price.

Does the Ki score change?

The Ki varies as time goes by. As new devices with better specifications enter the market the Ki score of older devices will go down, always being compensated of their decrease in price.
