One of the most impressive super budget devices that I had the privilege of using last year was the K4 Note by Lenovo. I expected the device to be utter crap but it turned out to perform really well and had a stunning 1080p AMOLED display. As far as budget devices go the K4 Note had one of the best screens. The only thing that really held the device back was the overwhelming amount of bloatware. Some of the bloatware included annoying and unrelenting popup ads. The bloatware is what eventually turned me off from the device completely.
Lenovo has just announced their next budgetary flagship the K5 Note! This is pretty exciting considering how great the K4 Note hardware happened to be. The new device will only set you back about $167, and will be a pretty hefty upgrade from last years K4 Note. Where the K4 Note had a cheaper feeling plastic build the K5 Note will feature a more premium feeling all metal body. The device will also feature a fingerprint scanner, 5.5″ 1080p display, 2GB of Ram, 16GB of storage, a microSD card slot, Helio P10 SoC, 13mp rear camera, and 8mp front camera.
The major selling point here may be the ginormous 3,500mah battery. This device should last all day and have plenty of screen on time. The battery in the K5 Note will support faster charging and will include a 5v/2a power adapter. The phone will run Android 5.1 Lollipop, but unfortunately it will once again include the VIBE UI Overlay. There will be a Marshmallow update in the next few weeks for the device. The device will be on sale starting this week in China. Registration has already started for the initial sale.
