The Lenovo K900 happens to be the company's flagship offering. The phablet retails at Rs 25,000 and comes in a single SIM variant. It happens to be Lenovo's most expensive offering in India. It also happens to one of the first high-end handsets in India to use an Intel Atom SoC. Until the company's Vibe X hits Indian shores later this year, the K900 ill be Lenovo's top contender in the Indian smartphone market. How did it fare in our tests? Read on to find out.
Form Factor and Build Quality
Lenovo has done a wonderful job in designing the handset. They've used a combination of metal and plastic. There's a polycarbonate enclosure that holds everything together. The back of the phone uses brushed steel, which looks great. Its smooth and very nice to hold. So this combination works for the new K900.
Its nice to hold, easy to grip and it feels like an expensive phone, which is a rarity these days, since manufacturers charge you anything from Rs 20,000 to Rs 30,000 for a phone and end up giving you dignified plastic. But when it comes to Lenovo K900, the build quality is recommendable.
Further, measure the phone and you'll end up with these dimensions 78x157x6.9 mm, while, the handset's weight is 162 grams and the weight is spread evenly across the body, allowing it to feel light yet solid.
Now moving onto its screen, the K900 uses a 5.5 inch IPS LCD display with Gorilla Glass 2. Its a Full HD display 1080p display. It has bright, saturated colors and the viewing angles are very good. It delivers 401 pixels per inch, which is comparable to devices like the HTC Butterfly and Sony Xperia Z. So yes, we're looking at a top notch screen here.
The phone is great for all kinds of media playback. We enjoyed watching HD videos on it. The phone's even better for reading and net surfing, since the screen delivers crisp, clean text. Visibility in direct sunlight is pretty good as long as you keep the brightness levels well over fifty percent. Anything lower will make reading a little difficult.
