About the Phone
The Lenovo K10 Note does not have an attractive look to it. It has a few pros and cons:
- The Lenovo K10 Note has a satisfying display though it is not very immersive.
- The Lenovo K10 Note has a decent performance due to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 chipset.
- The phone provides a decent battery life that can keep chugging for a whole day.
- The Lenovo K10 Note can click decent daylight shots with ample light in the surroundings.
- The body of the phone looks bland, and it often attracts smudges.
- The charging time of the phone is quite slow.
- The low-light photos of this phone are poor and grainy.
The Lenovo K10 Note is a decent phone, but it is not an all-rounder. The low-light shots of this phone are quite blurry, and the phone looks boring. However, if you are going for performance and reliability, this phone will serve your needs well.
Lenovo K10 Note may not hold your attention, but it has a lot to offer. Priced at Rs. 13,999, the phone packs a lot of punch under its hood.
The Lenovo K10 Note comes with a powerful performance, pairing it with reliable battery life. The display of the phone is quite satisfying too. In the case of cameras, the Lenovo K10 Note will serve the purpose, if you capture photos in adequate light conditions.
Lenovo K10 Note does not go for the attention-grabbing design that most phones go for. However, the phone has a good build, and so, it feels sturdy. It can fit comfortably in your hand even though it is a fingerprint magnet. The phone has a fingerprint sensor placed on its back. The volume and power buttons are present in an ergonomic position too, on the right side. Lenovo K10 Note comes with a 3.5mm headphone jack along with a USB Type-C port. Overall, the phone is not a looker but keeps the design rigid and reliable.
Lenovo K10 Note arrives with a 6.3-inch Full HD+ LCD which produces good colours. Lenovo K10 Note does not have Gorilla Glass, but it uses Panda Glass. The viewing angles are good and does not transform at extreme angles. The brightness level is satisfactory and can be viewed outdoors too. The chin is a bit thick, and the bezels are not very slim either. The phone has a dewdrop notch also which holds the selfie camera. The notch will not bother you too much with your cinematic experience.
The Lenovo K10 Note arrives with powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 chipset. It is a bridging chipset between the mid-range Snapdragon 600 series and the superior Snapdragon 800 series. The processing keeps simultaneous app use fast and breezy. It can also run graphics-heavy games in high presets without frame drops. The phone did not get too warm either. The phone gets a score of 1,62635 points in AnTuTu, which is quite decent.
The Lenovo K10 Note has a triple camera set-up which includes a 16MP primary camera, 8MP telephoto lens with an impressive 2x optical zoom and a 5MP depth-sensing camera. The telephoto lens takes a lot of time to focus, which makes it laggy. The photos captures are mostly good with non-oversaturated colours and proper white balance. Close-ups also have the details correct. The zoomed-in pictures of the telephoto lens, however, are not as good. Focusing can be a bit laggy in general. The Portrait mode is called ‘Dual’ as you can add an extra layer of background blur. The portrait shots are quite good. Indoors, the Lenovo K10 Note cameras do not perform well. The images carry a lot of visual noise. It fails to capture enough details. The phone has a 16MP selfie camera which is not great. The colours are off, and the beauty filter makes your face shots look too artificial.
The Lenovo K10 Note can record 4K resolution videos, but the colours are quite exaggerated. The 1080p videos are still decent, but the lack of stabilization makes the videos blurry.
Lenovo K10 Note has a 4050mAh battery under its hood. The battery can last for 13 hours and 14 minutes by keeping an HD video on a loop, which is impressive. With moderate use like music streaming, camera, gaming, and social media, it was able to chug on for one and a half days. With light use, it can chug on for two whole days. Charging is a bit slow, taking an hour to reach 63% and two and a half hours to reach 100%.
Lenovo K10 Note is quite a great phone with good performance, vibrant display, reliable battery, and great camera settings. However, the design of the phone is quite poor. While the camera does improve from the previous one and preserves the details of the shots, it requires ample light to keep the photo colours accurate. Indoor shots and low-light shots are inferior. Plus, the lack of video stabilization results in poor shots being captured. The phone is decent enough for the price it comes in, but you cannot expect all-rounder features from it.
