Lenovo K3 Note Specifications, Overview and Initial Impressions

Today was the first Flash sale of Lenovo K3 Note, and like all other such sales this one too lasted for a few seconds only. 47,440 units of device disappeared within 5 seconds. This was expected to happen – the device is totally loaded with features from every angle. In initial impressions it looks like a complete package of everything that an Indian smartphone buyer may want to have these days. Actually it offers much more than that.  Before getting started with this article, let me point you out this article which talks about Lenovo K3 Note flip covers.

Let’s find out what makes it the most compelling offering in budget smartphone segment:


It doesn’t look and feel like a budget smartphone. The design and build quality of device is outstanding and it feels like a premium device when held in hand. It’s not a unibody design, but there’s no creaky part in the device. And though back cover of device may feel a bit flimsy when removed, it’s not something that you’ll feel everyday.


This is the only smartphone with Full-HD display in under-10k segment. The display is also large enough at 5.5-inches. Plus, it’s also much sharper and vivid than most other smartphone displays in the budget segment. Needless to say that it’s an earnest bid from Lenovo to win the hearts of large, gorgeous display lovers who until now were left unsatisfied with displays of sub-standard quality.


At the heart of this budget phablet is something that you won’t find in any other budget smartphone as of now. It has been designed to outperform most other devices in this segment as it has got 64-bit 1.7GHz Octa-Core Mediatek MT6752 processor and 2GB of RAM. With this kind of hardware it didn’t come to me as a surprise when I saw it outperforming almost all other handsets in under-10k segment.


A 13MP camera sits on the back of this phablet and a 5MP one on the front. And both of them are great for everyday photography. Selfie camera also has something unique: it can be triggered in six different ways including voice commands, timers, holding up the V sign and so on. Plus, Lenovo has also packed enough features into its camera app to ensure that it can become a good option for photography lovers too.

Battery and Storage

Lenovo K3 Note comes with 16GB of internal storage and 32GB of expandable storage. And it’s powered by a 3,000 mAh battery, which is really capable of providing standby time up to 11 days and talk time up to 39 hours (on 2G) as promised by Lenovo. That pretty much sums it up!
Finally I’d like to say that as of now it’s the best option for every smartphone buyer who has a budget of around 10k bucks for a smartphone. You can buy it without having any qualms, and if you couldn’t get it in today’s flash sale then you should register yourself for the next one that’ll be held one week later.
