  • Lenovo‚Äôs Vibe UI adds some useful features on top of Android
  • Good speed/performance, including with games
  • Multitasking is smooth too, thanks to the ample RAM
  • Built-in support for VR glasses, similar to the K4 Note (ANT VR headset has to be purchased separately)
  • Decent, fast rear camera, especially for daylight shots - macro shots are good too and HDR shots came out well
  • The 8MP front-facing camera is good for selfies and video chats - colors are vibrant and the images are sharp as well
  • Fast fingerprint sensor
  • Thanks to Dolby Atmos, Wolfson WM8281 audio codec and 1.5W speaker, loudspeaker output is good and clear even in full volume

  • Handy, despite the big screen

  • Extensive display customization options allowing you to tweak it to just your liking - contrast, colour saturation, picture brightness, sharpness, temperature as well as dynamic contrast and colour effect settings for video playback
  • Clean, simple, almost-stock Android interface
  • No unnecessary bloatware
  • The "Around YU" feature works quite well, and offers a one-stop solution to book bus tickets, cabs, flight tickets, shop or order food, or recharge your phone
  • Excellent, smooth performance - even plays resource-intensive games without any signs of sluggishness or heating up on the back panel
  • Impressive battery life (lasts about a day and a half with moderate use)
Editor's Note [Negatives]

  • Low-light camera performance of the phone is strictly average - with plenty of noise in the shots
  • A bit heavy
  • Average camera
