Have used my k5 note for a year and a half now, bought it from Flipkart and considering that I spent 13k for it, I expect a phone to give decent service for atleast 2 years. But in this case, Lenovo has given me trouble from the start. A summary of the problems:
1- Original charger stopped functioning within 7-8 months.
2- No headphones given for a phone costing 13k.
3- Terrible battery issues- battery sometimes stays for upto 30 mins after the 15% mark, but many times phone shuts down within a minute of reaching 15% mark. Haven't experienced this with any other phone.
4- The charging port developed a problem after a year, due to which the phone wouldn't charge at all, so had to have that repaired at a nominal cost. Within 6 months of that repair, my phone is again refusing to charge or charging very very slowly (10% in an hour), so in all likelihood, will have to buy a new phone!
All in all, not really a worth-buy model. Been a disappointing experience for me.
Been using it since beginning of 2017. The phone is K5 Vibe though, not Note, but mine came with the Note Snapdragon for some unknown reason. All Vibe K5s are with Snapdragon 415 4x 1,5 and 4x 1,2 or s.th like that. There was a discussion I found, that some phones had better CPU like mine does- Snapdragon 616 with 4x1,7 and 4x s.th GHz. Really fast phone for 2GB RAM, and why to have Marshmallow or whatever? The Android 5.1 is a rocket, and delivers everything you need. It downloads torrent movies while streaming at the same time. Most of the regular use time it has 50% RAM free, like 900MB free out of 1,9GB. The phone is so much more than I expected, I will be buying a well preserved K5/6 Note, or one of the last new pcs I find soon.
Lenovo k5 just Rock's like anything I bought my lovely k5 in 2017 may till now my k5 does not the meaning of hangnor lag .it is better than redmi note 4 exception of battery back up but k5 gives beat battery back 6 hours in on screen and one and half day with quite heavy usage.compare to redmi note 4 it is best

But keep in mind that it will delete your entire data which all are stored in the internal storage. You can get those data by taking backup.
I'm using Lenovo K5 Note A7020a40 for 10 months now and phone works perfectly fine. Battery can last for two whole days with medium use or one day with extreme use.
Phone is fast and responsive.
A7020a40 have 3 GB of RAM with 16 GB of internal memory witch is't mentioned in this recension. Also this model doesnt have fingerprint.
There is only one issue. Sometimes makes reboot but I think that this issue is connected with auto update system because always after rebooting has few updates to do.
It has a very peculiar problem of rebooting automatically. It takes a good twenty minutes to return to normal. Any solutions to this headache.

Plus they do not have support of it besides it does not cover by warranty. The only option you will have is to pay half of phone price and get a counterfeit screen replacement.
