After almost a year of concentrating its attempts on Moto phones in India, Lenovo has now returned to its own flag to launch phones: Lenovo Z6 Pro, Lenovo K10 Note and Lenovo A6 Note. Lenovo has announced not one, but three fresh designs on the Indian market. Lenovo has forwarded K10 notes to us from three, and we can share our early ideas now that we have spent some time there.
Presently, the budget smartphone sector in India is saturated with lots of excellent choices. The Lenovo K10 Note has one stand-out function from what we've seen so far, which could attract to a niche audience and distinguish this phone. While viewing various back screens on devices at all cost rates is prevalent these days, an optical zoom-capable telephoto camera is still uncommon.
Add to that Android's close-stock look, a quick Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 processor, and a large battery, all this adds up to a tempting bundle, at least on paper. Here's what we think about the Lenovo K10 Note:
The Lenovo K10 Note's layout looks a bit secure, and it's not going to get individuals speaking. The plastic body looks sturdy and the device is slender and light. The back panel folds around the corners make the device convenient to be kept and used.
However, the' Knight Black ' paint we have is difficult to maintain smooth as fingerprints are not readily wiped off. We hope that in this respect the' Stardust Blue' finish will hold up better.
Ergonomics is a nice thing. All buttons are on the correct side and feedback is excellent tactile. It's also simple to achieve the back capacitive fingerprint sensor. You even get a concealed LED alert in the grille of the earpiece. There is also a headphone socket and a USB Type-C port at the bottom of the Lenovo K10 Note.
The Lenovo K10 Note's 6.3-inch screen feels great. Colors are punchy and there are quite good viewing angles. The brightness also appears to be sufficient, although we will have to do some outdoor experiments to see how it keeps up under immediate sunlight. There's a dewdrop knotch at the bottom which we're all used to now, and the boundaries around the screen are noticeable. The Snapdragon 710 SoC operated the Lenovo K10 Note. This is a power-efficient tool and in computers like the Realme X we've already seen it.
The version we have is configured with RAM 4 GB and storage 64 GB, but there is also one with RAM 6 GB and storage 128 GB. For many other people, 64 GB should be enough, but you can use a microSD card in the hybrid dual-Nano SIM tray if you need more.
One startling reality we found, simply by accident, is that the K10 Note could only be a redesigned Lenovo Z6 Youth Edition, introduced previously this year in China. The AIDA64 app detects the K10 Note as the Z6 Youth Edition, and apart from swapping the wide-angle camera of that model for a telephoto one, all other specs and layout appear to be very comparable.
The K10 Note has a 16-megapixel main camera with a broad, f/1.8 resolution; an 8-megapixel camera with 2x optical zoom and a f/2.4 resolution; and a 5-megapixel camera. The autofocus is fairly fast with regard to real results.
When you press the display or just push the device around for re-framing, the phone locks concentrate almost immediately. Image quality with a nice white balance is relatively smooth.
The telephoto camera also catches good information, but sharpness appears to be a little smaller than the primary camera you'd get. Once again, once we completely test this device, we will publish our final results.
Especially in this black texture, the Lenovo K10 Note doesn't has much to look at, and we are pleased to see that the body is a large smudge magnet. Looking past these cosmetic deficiencies, it is the only device with a telephoto camera in this section, which is a function that can often be helpful.
