Software, Design, Display
The Lenovo K5 Plus is a 4G-enabled dual-SIM Android device running on version 5.1 (Lollipop) out of the box.
If you’re cringing at the fact that Lollipop is almost 3 years old, you should put your mind to rest as the device can be bumped up to version 6 of Android through an OTA (over the air) update that would come through as soon as you power on the device and connect to the Internet.
Design-wise, we’re looking at a beautiful unibody metallic device which possesses physical navigation buttons in front, and two loudspeaker openings behind.
The display is an IPS LCD panel and it comes in at a handy 5 inches with a full HD resolution (1080 x 1920px) and a resulting pixel density of approximately 440 pixels per inch (440 PPI).
Performance, Hardware, Cameras
Inside of the device sits an Octa-core Snapdragon CPU clocked at 1.5 GHz and supported by an Adreno 405 GPU for pushing graphics, both of which are accompanied by 2GB of RAM to enable a “lag-free” experience.
The internal memory of the device is a modest 16GB. One would have expected something more considering the device’s other features, but if you’d be needing more space, you can conveniently toss in a memory card (microSD) and extend the storage space by up to 32GB.
For juice (read: power), the K5 Plus relies on a non-removable 2750 mAh Li-Ion battery which does not support flash/fast charging.
The cameras on the device are pretty much attuned to devices in this price bracket with the front facing shooter featuring a 5 MP lens with an aperture opening of f/2.8 (pretty tight) and the primary shooter featuring a 13 MP lens having a much wider aperture (f/2.2).
Other features of the camera, the primary camera that is, includes; autofocus capabilities, an LED flash, HDR mode, to name a few.
