2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Very good build quality - solid, premium, compact and feels good when held in hand
  • The compact design also works well for one-handed operations
  • Accurate fingerprint sensor at the back
  • Good 5.5-inch IPS 2.5D HD display with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection - good brightness levels, good color reproduction, good viewing angles
  • Almost Stock Android UI keeps things nice and simple - the only added apps are from Amazon such as Amazon Shopping, Prime Video and Amazon Kindle, and a 10.or care app for customer service from the brand
  • The 10.or Care app helps you to diagnose various parts of the device including a battery, RAM, Wi-fi and more - with this app, you can also book for mobile repair, get the service estimates and you can also get in touch customer care either through call or email - the integrated service support is definitely a plus point
  • Good day-to-day performance powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 - the chipset is good for casual usage ranging from browsing the internet, listening to songs, chatting and watching videos (it is not meant though for intensive gaming or multi-tasking between heavy apps)
  • Decent rear camera - picture quality during daylight condition is good with right amount details and clarity - macro shots are especially good
  • Decent front camera for selfies - the inclusion of the front flash helps with photography at night
  • Good call quality
  • Decent loudspeaker, and decent audio quality through headset
  • Excellent battery life - with moderate use, it goes on for 2 days
  • Dedicated dual SIM tray with a separate microSD card slot on the left - unlike some of the competitors that offer Hybrid Dual Sim
  • On the whole, for day-to-day use (minus intensive gaming), this is a solid all-round device
  • Well built
  • Ergonomically sized, comfortable for one-handed use
  • Fingerprint scanner at the back is easy to reach, and quite responsive
  • Useful physical button that can be setup to to play/ pause music, switch tracks, or launch a custom app
  • Decent Full HD display with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 for protection - viewing angles are good and colour reproduction is decent
  • Stock Android UI keeps thing nice and simple, and will be much appreciated by Android enthusiasts
  • Good all-round performance backed by solid hardware - multitasking is easy with several apps running in the background, and games run well too
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • The bottom bezel is quite large and looks awkward without any physical or capacitive button on it
  • Due to the reflective display, the sunlight legibility is average
  • The rear camera is pretty good in daylight, but could have been better in low light
  • No fast charging support - so it takes over 2 and half hours to charge the phone
  • A bit on the thick and bulky side, measuring 8.99mm and weighing 165g
  • Sunlight legibility of the display could have been better
  • 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
