Lenovo Vibe K5 Plus Review: A Decent Option

By on Email @exolete

Lenovo now has a knack of making great value for money smartphones, with one or the other defining feature. The Vibe K5 Plus follows on the same principles and is more design centric. It offers a metal build, solid construction, sharp 1080p display and good battery-life. Although it doesn't perform as well as Coolpad Note 3 Lite, Meizu M2 or the dated Redmi 2 Prime, but if you are looking for a good smartphone with a 5-inch display which performs adequately well, the Vibe K5 Plus is worth a look. If cameras are your thing, then you should look elsewhere.


6.9

The Lenovo Vibe K5 Plus is a decent offering in its price bracket, but is a bit letdown by performance and cameras.
