However, you have to take some extra care of the phone as it doesn’t come with Corning gorilla glass and is prone to scratches. The device is available in various colors such as White, Blue, Rose Gold, and Black.
Lenovo K8 Note comes up with 2.3 GHz processor. It retains the 4 GB RAM from Lenovo K6 Note. The performance is absolutely killer on Lenovo K8 Note as both the processor and RAM does go well hand in hand. Multitasking won’t be much of an issue as 4GB is capable of holding apps with ease. Lenovo K8 Note will provide you with quickest android experience as it runs Android 7.0 Nougat operating system.

Lenovo K8 Note will offer the dual-LED and phase detection autofocus; sadly there is no 4K recording as 1080p is the highest it will go. There are various camera modes which are available besides the normal and Pro shooting modes. Plus you will also get Fast and Slow motion, HDR, Nightscape, Panorama mode.
The reason on why it’s called behind the number 8 in K8 Note is not clear. The number does suggest that smartphone could also fancy a dual rear camera setup.
As I have mentioned earlier that Lenovo K8 Note can only shoot videos at 1080p@30fps. Video file will get recorded in standard mp4 format, and the video stream is at respectable 20Mbps, and the audio would be captured at 96 Kbps, 48 kHz in stereo.
The Lenovo K6 Note is available in dual SIM (nano). The only downside of this is that it uses a hybrid tray, so you have to sacrifice one of the SIM cards to get some extra storage. Wi-Fi is basic, but it’s good for a budget device. On the other side, Bluetooth is modern, but NFC is missing. You can also enjoy FM which is present in a smartphone.
