Lenovo has been tasting a good amount of success in India with its range of phones that are offered at rock bottom prices and it is quite an accomplishment considering the likes of Xiaomi, OnePlus and Meizu too operating around here. One of the key factors to the success apart from low pricing model is the fact that the phones are well built though much of it is plastic and something that others have been struggling at – best in the class customer service. And as such Lenovo is a very very trusted brand! To add to all of this is the evolution of the Vibe UI has finally taken a good shape in becoming a very stable OS that offers decent amount of customization and at the same time solid performance across all departments especially the battery life.
Continuing on the success Lenovo has just launched the K3 Note, the bigger brother of K3 which is pitched as a 4G phablet for the budget conscious crowd and will take on the likes of Meizu M1 Note, Yu Yureka, Xiaomi Redmi Note 4G, Honor 4X and so on. Lets look at the specifications, the pricing and how it fares with the rest of the competition:
