2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 7 Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Well built
  • Ergonomically sized, comfortable for one-handed use
  • Fingerprint scanner at the back is easy to reach, and quite responsive
  • A bit on the thick and bulky side, measuring 8.99mm and weighing 165g

Display

  • Decent Full HD display with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 for protection - viewing angles are good and colour reproduction is decent
  • Sunlight legibility of the display could have been better

Software

  • Useful physical button that can be setup to to play/ pause music, switch tracks, or launch a custom app
  • Stock Android UI keeps thing nice and simple, and will be much appreciated by Android enthusiasts

Performance

  • Good all-round performance backed by solid hardware - multitasking is easy with several apps running in the background, and games run well too

Camera

  • Decent dual-camera setup on the rear - decent bokeh shots (as long as you set it up right), good macros, and indoor shots are also pretty good
  • Decent front camera too - photos taken with the the front camera are good and can be used on messengers and social networking apps - also, the front flash is handy in dark areas
  • Rear camera is pretty good but could have been a bit better in landscape mode, and with HDR
  • Also the camera tends to sometimes lag a bit in depth (bokeh) mode

Battery

  • Very good battery life - the phone can run for a day and a half with regular use
  • Pretty decent charging speed - takes about 2 hours to charge fully

More

  • Dedicated slots for dual SIM cards and memory card (which is a always a good thing when many other phones are choosing to come out with a hybrid SIM/memory slot)
  • On the whole, if stock Android and good battery life appeal to you, then the Lenovo K8 Plus is a good choice
