Lenovo K5 review


Low cost, but can the K5 be high reward?

Low price ; Solid spec list ; Removable battery

No app drawer ; Older Android

The Lenovo K5 offers premium design at a low price point, but that may not be enough to convince people to take a punt.

Lenovo K5


Lenovo is a huge name in the world of tech. Yet, in the west at least, it hasn't made a dent in the phone market. But that might all be about to change.
