Lenovo K900 smartphone review

Priced at Rs 32,999, Lenovo K900 smartphone focuses on both hardware and its user interface features.

The 5.5-inch Lenovo K900 phone is trying to make a mark in the Indian telecom market which is dominated by smartphone majors like Samsung, Micromax, Karbonn, Nokia, Sony, etc.

Running on customized version of Android 4.2 operating system, Lenovo K900 smartphone is meant for both professionals and individual users as it comes with several innovative and high quality features.

Considering its competition with Samsung S4, BlackBerry Z10 and LG G Pro, Lenovo K900 smartphone is cost effective.


Indian mobile phone users like aluminium body. Lenovo K900 phone does look classy with its brushed aluminium back panel and an all-black fascia with a very thin bezel. Lenovo has not tried to cut cost on the body or other front facing features.

According to a user, the sleek-cut, stainless steel frame and unibody chassis offers smooth, elegant look and feel as the phone is very light at 162g. With 6.9mm thickness, K900 is one of the slimmest smartphones in the world.

The power button on the right and the volume rocker on the left are good for professionals.

The phone is easy to handle. The phone does not slip from the hand that easily thanks to its well crafted exteriors and body shape.

Business professionals can monitor their battery and accordingly they can charge it. From the time one switch the phone on, it shows an estimate of how long the battery is going to last. When one opens applications such as WhatsApp or Facebook, it’ll notice these functions and recalculate the time left accordingly.


For business professionals, who want to read their e-mails and see their e-papers on the smartphone, the 5.5-inch screen is adequate.

The resolution on the Lenovo K900 is top notch – it’s a full HD display with an IPS screen.


Though Lenovo did not give much attention on camera features like its big competitors, it is adequate for business professionals and individuals.

The K900 smartphone comes with 13MP camera with a dual-LED flash and with 4x digital zoom. It is easy to operate. The image quality is good. But it’s not extra ordinary.


Lenovo K900 runs on the latest Intel Atom mobile processor, a dual-core 1.8GHz unit. We ran videos and other applications, and did not find any issues with the processing speed.

In fact, Lenovo K900 is the first smartphone to leverage the latest Intel Atom Z2580 processor, a dual core chip, which runs up to 2.0 GHz and utilizes Intel Hyper-Threading technology.

The latest device features an Intel Graphics Media Accelerator engine running a PowerVR SGX 544MP2 GPU, which triples graphics performance over the previous generation.

For business professionals, 16GB of storage space with Lenovo K900 may not be enough.


Most of the well known Chinese phone brands ensure high quality battery with longer battery life. Lenovo is following those smartphone majors with a high quality battery which is extremely good for working professionals in India.

Business professionals can do video uploads, 3G downloads, Wi-Fi, etc. without much hassles from the battery.

The price of Rs 32,999 for Lenovo K900 is a good bet for both business users and individuals.

It is handy, strong and smooth to manage. The new phone supports WCDMA 2100Mhz, GSM 900/1800/1900Mhz.

The device comes pre-loaded with all the applications you would expect – such as Facebook, YouTube and Evernote – and a host more are available free to download via the Google Play marketplace.

The K900 smartphone has a tendency to quickly heat up when running more heavy duty applications and games, although this did not appear to affect performance.
