Specifications

Design: The dimensions are 76.2mmx152.6mmx8mm (lxbxh) and it weighs 150gm. While the K3 Note is not a light device, you have to give Lenovo credit for making this phablet lighter than many other offerings out there.

Display: The K3 Note sports a 5.5-inch screen that puts out display resolution of 1920×1080 pixels. The pixels per inch ratings stands at 401 but cramming a Full HD screen in the K3 Note is an admirable move by Lenovo. It can be viewed from up to 178 degrees off centre and has 5-point multi-touch support as well.

Camera: The K3 Note sports a 13-megapixel camera on the back and a 5-megapixel one on the front. Both of them are Omnivision units, the rear one being OV13850 with F2.0 max apreture and 5 lens element. The front one is OV5670 with max aperture of F 2.2 and 3 lens element. While they may not feel like the best camera units on paper, the real world results should be enough to satisfy your needs.

OS and special features: The Lenovo K3 Note runs on Android 5.0 Lollipop with Vibe UI version 2.0, the smartphone maker’s in-house skin. You get 16GB internal storage space and you can use a microSD card to expand it up to 32GB. There is 3G and 4G network capabilities present on the phablet along with Wifi 802.11 b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth and A-GPS support. AmicroUSB port with OTG functionality, a speaker with Dolby Atmos technology, gravity sensor, proximity sensor, gyro sensor, e-compass, dual SIM and light sensor seal the deal.

Performance and battery life: The K3 Note sports a 64-bit 1.7GHz octa-core MediaTek MT6752 processor and has been paired with 2GB RAM. Not the most powerful combination, but should help you get great battery life courtesy of a 2900mAh battery. Lenovo could have used a bigger power cell though is what we feel.
