Hi Saiyed1,


Smartphone users value different features in their phones. We work closely with our carrier and retail partners when determining the specifications of our phones. The battery and chipset information of the K8 series has been fully disclosed and publicized before it was released. These information are made available to help customers decide whether it fits their phone needs.


What made you say that the software is unstable? What specific challenges are you having with the phone's software?


This is not typical. We'd like to know more about your service experience so we can address it properly. Care to tell us what exactly happened?


Moto-Lenovo Support

How many times we need to tell our problems ??? It's been 5 month since Oreo and still it's buggy. Adaptive brightness not working properly, internet on / off not working properly and many more.


But instead of raising our concern with developer team ,just giving out irrelevant solution like booting in safe mode , factory reset etc ....   Poor lenovo and pathetic service....God help us !!!!!

Sir please read your forum first that thousands of customers face some Major bugs and issues just after Oreo update like heating, battery drain, network issue, automatically restart device, proximity sensor not working, so this is your stable update with lots of problems??

Re: Lenovo k8 pro and cons

2018-12-29, 7:55 AM

Lenovo has outed its K8 Note just in time for the upcoming festival season. The multimedia-focused K-series has always been very popular among budget buyers, and the new K8 Note too shall serve as an online alternative to reigning best sellers like Redmi Note 4. Let’s discuss what the K8 Note is all about in a detailed FAQ post below.

The new Killer Note heavily borrows from Moto phones, which makes it all the more interesting. If you are a prospective buyer, let’s answer a few Lenovo K8 Note questions that you might or might not be asking.

Lenovo K8 Note Look and Feel
Question: How is the Lenovo K8 Note design?

Answer: As far as design goes, Lenovo plays it safe with a tried and trusted template. K8 Note has a metal back that gently curves towards the edges, metallic sides with single chamfered edge, and a 2.5D Gorilla Glass with smudge resistant oleophobic coating on the front.

It’s a tall phone with beefy bezels on top and bottom, but it’s also reasonably slim that makes it quite comfortable to wield, in spite of the decent heft ( 180 grams) that it has. The fingerprint sensor is mounted on the rear, right below the dual camera capsule, and the capacitive navigation bar is present below the display.

Another interesting aspect is the dedicated music key on the right. You can double tap the key for Play/Pause and also use it to the switch tracks. Or you can customize the double tap action to launch any app, fire camera flash, etc.

Question: How is the Lenovo K8 Note build quality?

Answer: The Lenovo K8 Note feels solid and durable. There are no flexes or creeks in the body.

Question: Is Lenovo K8 Note Water resistant?

Answer: No, but it benefits from a nano coating that makes it splash resistant.

Question: Does the Lenovo K8 Note comes with back cover and tempered glass?

Answer: No, you will have to buy those separately.

Question: Does Lenovo K8 Note have capacitive navigation buttons below the display?

Answer: Yes, navigation buttons are present below the display. They are not backlit but are silver coated.

Question: How is the Lenovo K8 Note display?

Answer: Lenovo is using a 5.5-inch Full HD display panel on the K8 Note. From the display settings, you can switch between vibrant and standard color profile (just like Moto phones). Whites on the display lean towards blue, which is what most consumers must be used to by now. The display brightness, dynamic range, contrast, and colors are good for the price.

Bluelight filter isn’t present on the phone by default.

Question: Does Lenovo K8 Note have sRGB color Mode? How to enable it?

Answer – Yes, the option to switch to the sRGB color mode is present under developer options, but you can’t enable it. If you toggle it on, it gets turned off as soon as you leave developer options.

Question: Does the Lenovo K8 Note have the option for automatic brightness?

Answer: The phone has adaptive brightness. We didn’t face any issues with visibility under direct sunlight.

Question: Does the Lenovo K8 Note display have Gorilla glass protection?

Answer: Yes, the phone has Gorilla Glass 3 layer on the display.

Lenovo K8 Note Performance and Storage
Question: How much internal storage space is free on Lenovo K8 Note?

Answer: There are two storage variants, one with 32GB and one with 64GB native storage. The one we have is the 64GB storage variant and it has around 51GB is free out of the box.

Question: How much RAM is free on Lenovo K8 Note?

Answer: At the time of first boot, about 2.5GB free RAM was available (out of 4GB). We didn’t face any issue with RAM management.

Question: Does Lenovo K8 Note have a separate microSD card slot?

Answer: Yes, the Lenovo K8 Note comes with dedicated microSD card slot which can be used to add up to 256GB of secondary storage.

Question: How is the day-to-day or general performance? How is gaming performance of Lenovo K8 Note?

Answer: We didn’t face any issue with day-to-day usage. UI transitions are fast, the phone can easily keep 5 to 6 apps cached in RAM, and software decoding while playing videos works without any hint of lag. Even high-end games like Asphalt 8 that we have tried so far work well.

Question: Does Lenovo K8 Note have heating issues?

Answer: It runs cool with day to day usage. With gaming, it gets warm but the temperature lies within bounds of being acceptable.

Question: Does Lenovo K8 Note support Google cardboard and other VR Apps? Does Lenovo K8 Note have gyroscope sensor?

Answer: Google cardboard and other VR apps are supported on the handset. It does have a gyroscope. Lenovo has also added TheaterMax support that can be used to experience all media on an illusionary theatre like vast display using a VR headset.

Update (May 11, 2018): Several users are reporting performance and software issue with K8 Note after the Oreo update. That’s something you should keep in mind if you are buying the phone as of today.
Question: How is the Lenovo K8 Note camera quality?

Answer: The 13MP camera on the Lenovo K8 Note can shoot great details in outdoor lighting. The color contrast and dynamic range are fine too. For indoor shots and in low light, the images aren’t very sharp and noise creeps in.

Overall, the camera performance is better than what we usually see in this budget. We would rank the rear camera performance as better than Redmi Note 4 and somewhat below the likes of Cool 1 dual.
