I am using k5 note from last 15days. I have 3gb ram model, I don't play games in phn and I am a moderate user. its my personal review
1.Best LOOKing k series phn,but wide black bezells looks ugly in gold color Varient.
2. DISPLAY is good and vibrant 8 out of 10.
3. BATTERY performance is not as good as I expected. I use my phn at 1%brightness. It gives 6-7hours SOT- continues browsing on opera mini (3g network). On standby mode 2% decrease in one hour. I played a light 3d cricket game that time 20%dec in an hour.
4. Camera- Rear camera is not good, my k3 note was much better. front camera is better than k3 note. Both camera's performance is poor in low light, In day light- picture quality is decent, But I have watch reviews on YouTube that it's camera is better than redmi note 3. If your priority is only camera go for moto g4plus.
Low light -Front camera 6 out of 10 and rear camera 5out of 10.
Day light- Front camera 9 out of 10 and rear camera 7 out of 10.
5. No network issue,No heating issue till now.
6. Charging time less than 2hours from 10% to 100%.
7.I am not a heavy user so my phone never hangs. 1gb to 1.2gb out of 3gb ram remains free after closing all apps.
8. Sounds quality is decent 8 out of 10.
9. I use Lenovo classic Theme, that gives pure Android like experience.
10. Biggest drawback is hybrid sim slot. But 32gb internal(23gb free for use) is enough for most users.
Hope my opinion may help someone for deciding whether to buy or not.

I have bought Lenovo K5 note. I am facing issue with Airtel mobile data. Most of the time it doesn't with same default settings. Please suggest if this is an inbuilt error then i should return?
Does this phone have a GPS chip for offline (no internet) navigation, or only A-GPS?
