Lenovo brings pure Android experience with K8 Plus
1 of 2
K8 Plus looks like a smaller sibling of K8 Note that was launched in August, with a toned down specification-sheet. This is the second smartphone from the handset maker to sport dual primary cameras. Major highlights of K8 Plus are stock Android operating system (OS) and dual camera set-up at the rear. The smartphone sports a vertical dual-rear camera set-up with 13MP "Purecel Plus" sensor + 5MP depth sensor and f/2.0 Largan Precision 5-element lens. At Rs 10,999, let's see how this device does in the fiercely-competitive Indian smartphone market.

Starting with K8 Note, Lenovo did away with its propriety interface "Vibe UI" that was criticised for being a heavy and bloated Operating System (OS). K8 Plus offers smooth performance, thanks to the stock 7.1 Android OS. The 5.2-inch full HD display (1440 X 1080 pixels) produces vivid colours with decent sunlight legibility. The rear side of K8 Plus has a smooth metal finish and the venom black coloured unit we received for review looked great. The 13MP + 5MP dual camera at the rear was able to capture decent images with details in daylight. That being said, we found the auto focus more accurate on this smartphone than that on Lenovo K8 Note.
