Lenovo Vibe K5 Design

The Vibe K5 is identical to the rest of the phones in the Vibe K5 series. It gets a plastic body with hints of metal. The edges of the phone are rounded off with a satin finish on the bezel. The capacitive keys on the Vibe K5 are not backlit which makes navigation difficult in the dark.

The volume rocker and power button are located on the right with the left side being devoid of any buttons. The phone’s dimensions are 142.00 x 71.00 x 8.20 mm and it weighs 150.00 gm.

The back panel gets a camera with an LED flash on top and twin speaker grille with Dolby branding at the bottom. The back panel also gets a dual tone treatment with a dark and light shade of the base colour for a premium appearance. Screen size is 5.0 inch.

The phone looks well made for its price and is available in three colours – silver, gold and grey.

Lenovo Vibe K5 Hardware

The Lenovo Vibe K5 gets a 5.0 inch display with 720×1280 pixel resolution. Powering the phone is the 1.2GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 415 processor with 2GB of RAM. Internal storage is 16GB and is expandable to a somewhat small 32 GB via an external Micro SD card. The Vibe K5 Plus also gets dual micro SIM capability.

The rear shooter on the phone is a 13MP unit with a single LED flash while the front camera is a 5MP unit.  In terms of connectivity the K5 gets Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, GPS, Bluetooth 4.10, a 3.5mm audio jack along with USB OTG. The phone misses out on NFC though.

The phone gets a 2750mAH Li-ion battery and a bevy of sensors too.

Lenovo Vibe K5 Software

The phone gets Android 5.1 Lollipop out of the box. It runs Lenovo’s Vibe UI on top, which comes loaded with a lot of features.
