2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 5 Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Beautiful glass-based unibody design - gives a premium feel both in terms of looks, and how it is to hold in the hand
  • Nice, transparent shell cover included in the retail box
  • Fairly fast, accurate fingerprint sensor

Display

  • Nice, tall 5.7-inch HD+ screen with 2.5D glass cover - it is bright and crisp, with good sunlight legibility

Software

  • Packs Android 8.1 Oreo with a simple, clean interface, and not too much bloat

Performance

  • Packs a solid Helio P22 processor (similar to Snapdragon 625) and 3GB RAM to deliver smooth performance in day-to-day use

Camera

  • Decent dual rear camera setup - takes decent quality pictures in well light conditions - macro shots also come off reasonably ok
  • The dual front camera setup too takes decent selfies and has a dedicated LED flash
  • Overall, the cameras are on par with other decent camera phones in this price bracket (but not exceptional as one might have thought, given the 4 cameras and the camera-centric branding)
  • Low light performance of the cameras is average

Battery

  • Houses a solid 3000mAh battery - will comfortably last the day with moderate use

More

  • One of the surprisingly good things about the K9 is the implementation of the Type C USB port, which makes it the only phone in its price segment to offer it
  • Overall, the K9 turns out to be a pretty decent budget dual-camera phone - and can give some competition to the likes of Redmi 6 in this price segment
