Lenovo K8 plus. Why you should buy or not?

I really don’t want to write about this phone but I also want to tell you why it’s always not a good deal to buy a mid-range device.

2nonths ago suddenly my loveable device Lenovo Zuk Z2plus stopped charging. So I went to the Lenovo service center in my local city but they said they can’t fix it immediately. So my secondary device was not so good so I decided to buy a mid-range device for using for a few months.

So I went to a local shop and I found a very good deal on the Lenovo K8 plus. They were offering 3/32GB variant in just Rs.7000 and the same deal was there in Flipkart too. So I bought from them instantly. With the RS.7000 price tag it was a very good deal and the specs are too.

Let me tell you about the specs first.

The Lenovo K8 Plus has a 5.2inch full HD display cover with 2.5D corning gorilla glass 3. Under the hood, the device has a Mediatake 6757 which is also knowns as Helio P25chipset. The P25 is not so good performer if we compare it with Snapdragon 625. Most of the heavy task you can do with this phone but it lags most of them when you are doing multiple tasks at the same time. For gaming, I directly want to say that this chipset is not for gaming. Yeah, you can still game even can play most of the games like Asphalt 9 or PubG but in low settings. From the network side, this phone doesn’t capture so many networks.

From the camera side, the device has dual camera setup on the back a 13MP f/2.0 primary sensor with a 5MP depth sensor. And on the front side, there is an 8MP camera.

The rear camera performs well in daylight its able to take some good photos. The depth sensor also works well in daylight but it struggles in low light. I will add a few pictures end of the article which has taken by this phone.

The battery is massive with the capacity of 4000Mah but no fast charging technology is there for juice up your battery. But if you are those people who charge phones overnights then you should not worry. In my heavy day uses with whole day connected with Wi-Fi, browsing even gaming it still manages to save more than 35% by returning home.

You might get an overview on the phone already so let me tell you about the pros and cons.


•    It has good screen quality.

•    Mostly this processor runs all task.

•    The camera is good in daylight.

•    Huge battery.


•    Bad selfie camera.

•    Bigger battery but no fast charging.

•    Frame drops in gaming, can’t run all games in heavy settings.

•    Freezes sometimes in browsing.

Otherwise, the phone is good at this price. And if we talk about the updates then Lenovo is very bad in deliver updates.

So mostly I don’t recommend this phone to everyone but if you need a secondary device that can run almost anything so you can check this phone.
