  • Lenovo K10 Note

The new Lenovo K10 Note is one of the few phones under Rs. 15,000 to sport a telephoto camera, which in itself, sets it apart from the crowd. While most companies seem to be adding additional wide-angle cameras, it’s nice to see Lenovo thinking a little out of the box here. Lenovo K10 Note price in India starts at Rs. 13,999 for the 4GB variant, which is what we’ll be reviewing today.

In this segment, the Lenovo K10 Note competes directly with phones such as the Realme 5 Pro (Review), Vivo Z1 Pro (Review), and the Xiaomi Mi A3 (Review). On paper, Lenovo’s latest offering is well equipped to take on the competition. It’s got a big battery, a high-resolution display and a powerful processor. It’s time to find out if the Lenovo K10 Note is worth considering.

Lenovo K10 Note design

We talked about the simplistic design of the Lenovo K10 Note in our first impressions piece, which while nice, isn’t exactly attention-grabbing. The body is built from plastic, which is of good quality and the phone does feel sturdy. We also liked the fact that back and sides are made of a single piece of plastic, which makes it comfortable to hold. This ‘Knight Black’ colour variant of the Lenovo K10 Note we had in for review is impossible to keep clean though. Smudges on the plastic back don’t wipe-off easily, making the phone look messy just moments after you pick it up. The phone will only available in this colour when it goes on sale, at least for now.

The volume and power buttons to the right line up well with you fingers, as does the capacitive fingerprint sensor at the back. You get a hybrid dual-SIM slot on the left, which supports 4G VoLTE on both slots. You can expand the internal storage using a microSD card but in lieu of a second SIM card. All the ports are placed at the bottom of the Lenovo K10 Note. The 3.5mm headphone socket can get in the way if you’re playing a game with wired headphones and holding the phone in landscape mode. Thankfully, the speaker isn’t easily blocked as it’s placed above the USB Type-C port.
