2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 4 Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Looks nice upfront with a dewdrop notch display with almost no bezels on the sides (however, it does have a slight chin at the bottom)
  • Light, compact and easy to hold
  • The back design is a little bland however, and the shiny plastic body attracts smudges very easily

Display

  • Good 6.3-inch FHD+ display - the LCD panel comes with HDR10 support, which is quite impressive considering the price range - it also produces vivid and punchy colors, and works fine in outdoor light conditions

Software

  • Lenovo's ZUI is pretty close to stock Android - which is a good thing - it keeps things nice and simple
  • But given the fact that the only changes are to the look of the notification shade, and the task switcher, and no major features are added, the ZUI layer could have been easily skipped, which would have resulted in an even more responsive feeling UI

Performance

  • Good performance from a strong Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 SoC - the phone performs comfortably, and handles moderate multitasking well - gaming performance is good too

Camera

  • Triple-camera setup at the back includes a 16-megapixel primary camera sensor, an 8-megapixel telephoto lens with 2x optical zoom (a rarity in this segment), and a 5-megapixel depth sensor
  • Performance of the 16-megapixel primary camera is good, especially in daylight - background colors come out quite richly in the pictures
  • Good focus speed
  • Good portrait mode photos (with good edge detection)
  • Overall, the K10 Note has capable cameras for the price bracket, though it's no quite there at the top of the pile
  • While the telephoto lens sounds impressive on paper, the quality is average - you will find that you can get comparable results with digital zoom on competing smartphones
  • The cameras are also average in low light - there is a dedicated night mode, and it does help a bit, but not much
  • Video recording quality is average - audio is also a bit of an issue too, as it generally sounds tinny
  • Average selfie camera - skin textures look sharpened and colours aren't always accurate - there is no flash either for night photos

Audio

  • The smartphone comes with a single speaker, but with Dolby Atmos support, which improves the overall audio performance

Battery

  • Good battery life with a large 4050mAh battery - you will get around 1.5 days of moderate use
  • While it does technically 18W fast charging, the actual charging speed is not too great - the battery charges about 63 percent in an hour and takes almost two and half hours to fully charge

Verdict

  • While the K10 Note does have some aces up its sleeves - Snapdragon 710 SoC, 4050mAh battery and a reasonably capable triple camera setup - it also enters a market segment where the competition from the likes of Xiaomi, Realme, Samsung, Oppo, and Vivo is ruthless - it's worth considering if you want an HDR10 supported device for entertainment purposes or a lightweight device with near stock android experience - but otherwise, the competition is certainly better

  1. A good comeback attempt from Lenovo in the budget segment....but while the Lenovo K10 Note is certainly acceptable, other phones at similar price points such as the Realme 5 Pro and Xiaomi Mi A3 offer better value

  2. The competition seems better...However, if you want an HDR10 supported device for entertainment purposes or a lightweight device with near stock android experience, then the K10 Note could be the one for you
