i too am facing the same problem and it lags a lot even when cool while scrolling and gaming. the k8 has almost a flagship kind of processor but performance is worse than most phones.
the mali t880mp4 should run most games at 60fps and there should be no scroll lag but lenovo hasnt optimized their software and screwed up a great phone.
and yes ive restarted my device and yes ive performed factory reset and yet the problem persists.

I am monitoring this thread and please let me know what apps are you using to measure the CPU usage?
And I have checked all users' profiles and the IMEIs of the following users will be checked with their permission and make sure to provide the needed information above:
@gurmeetathwal,@Attitudeking,@Sonu761,@Vmishra and @ashok999.
I will give feedback once we are done running diagnostics.
Need help updating your profile? See here. Please make sure that the options under Settings > Lenovo Privacy are on as well, and let me know (just reply here) if it's okay for me to look at your apps to see if they are a source of problems.

Everything was great till the Oreo update arrived. If you are in doubt, search for K8 Note Oreo update and you will learn for your self.
After Oreo update, the mobile always keeps hot even if its idle. You can't even pickup the phone and put it to your ears. Hope someone doesn't get hurt due to explosion of this phone.
The battery drains very fast. Before oreo update battery used to last for 2 days for me, but now it doesn't even last 3-4 hours. Its even getting worse day by day. Due to heating not able to put the phone in pocket or even not able to keep it on ear when call comes, even if phone was idle since hour. The phone is still in warranty and Lenovo has no clue what's happening.
Wish I am able to roll back the Oreo update or return the phone.
If you haven't bought the phone yet : Wait till these issues get resolved.
If you have already bought : DONT UPDATE TO OREO.
If you have alreay updated to Oreo : God help you(like me), and start saving for another phone.
Hope this helps and save people from getting burnt (literarry) by the phone.

I think, my K8 Note is getting better. Charged to full 100% today morning and it is still 31% balance, and no abnormal heating today, though only normal usage. 3-4 days back I charged by keeping it shutdown, which took around 3 hrs. But drained in just 6 hours and to much heat. After it got totally drained again charged full keeping on. It got better day by day and today it is in good condition again. Attached screenshot.

After one week of O update now my phone has stopped heating, fast draining of battery is no more an issue and turbo charging is working again. Lagging also doesn't seem to be an issue any more. Phone is as good as it was before O upadate.
