As owner of a Lenovo Vibe K4 Note unit, I hope you Lenovo will release a true successor soon enough.
No, I don't consider K5 and K6 as its true successor. They have lost the "vibe", sorry.
Here's a quote of my post in Vibe K4 Note's comment section in April.
"I wonder whether Lenovo will ever launch a true successor to this device.
Vibe K4 Note stands out because of its multimedia capabilities, I enjoy the front stereo speakers a lot coupled with the 5.5 inch screen...
K5 Note and K6 Note (and their variants) are all side-grade to me because they lack the stereo speakers.
I really wish there will be a Vibe K7 Note of sort that does not lack these traits:
- Front stereo speakers, obviously
- Capacitive buttons, seriously
- Dedicated dual SIM slots (screw hybrid slot) & microSD slot
- Beautiful screen
- Big battery
- Fingerprint scanner
- 3.5mm jack
Here is a list of upgrades I would like to have:
- Most pivotal, employ a 14-nm SoC, for example SD 625 or 626.
- 32GB internal & 4GB RAM combo.
- Better quality screen, think color accuracy and sunlight legibility. Not necessarily has to be of AMOLED kind. 1080p is enough.
- Android Nougat out of the box.
- Larger camera sensor. I don't think I need more than 13MP, however I desire for better low-light performance. Heck, Lenovo could throw in Moto G5 Plus's big sensor.
If this is too much to ask for from K Note series, I would gladly pay a bit more for an Vibe X series device. Perhaps Vibe X4, as a successor to the Vibe X3.
Moreover, since SD660 and SD630 have been officially announced, I now wish the would-be Vibe K7 Note will get SD630, and would-be Vibe X4 will get SD660.

arjun, 13 Mar 2017My phone back key is not working any solution...Set the Back button on fingerprint scanner
My Lenovo Note K4, purchased exactly an year ago, fell down multiple times. The start/stop button and volume button on the right side of the panel do not work anymore. Can we get this replaced? What will the cost be approximately?
Why the mobile is getting heat after using it for 30 mins..And sometimes it's getting hanged.Even without mobile data this is inconvenient to use..I really fa ef worst experience using lenovo k4 note and I suggested my frnds to do not use this mobile
It's almost same as Moto x play.
But Moto has SD chipset so the battery efficiency is amazing.
What I like on lenovo-
1) unique design, (looks like aluminium body in the middle but it's plastic)
2) advanced features like Dolby Atmos, awesome stereo speakers,rear fingerprint scanner, brightness level is good,
What I don't like-
1) battery efficiency (3300mAh but draining so quickly because it has screen+processor miss understanding issues)
3) cannot plug external hard drive because of inefficient chip
4)poor camera results (front and rear)
if you want an average battery backup+non heating K4 note, you should turn your screen brightness to 0%
I guess... Mediatek chipset has some communication issues with the 401ppi 5.5" IPS LCD screen. I decreased the brightness of the screen to its minimum 0% and been used couple of hours. The result was unbelievable. Battery efficiency improved a lot like it's been draining 1 or 2 percentage per minute while 4G LTE and dual SIM slots were ON but when the screen brightness completely turned off, battery stayed at the same percentage for 10_15 minutes. Try yourself. I tested and proven .
