Ok so, ive had this phone since late 2017 til now (june 2019) and so far I've had a few problems along the past years.
-My phone can no longer vibrate (oof silent mode)
-The - Volume rocker doesn't work anymore (oof screenshot)
-The Google music app sometimes resets
-Some certain apps would restart the UI android system (probably due to being only 2GB ram)
So far this phone has held up and helped me through so many homework files (for school) and my 752 song library.
This phone is pretty good, but please PLEASE get a good case that can protect it to avoid the problems Ive had the past year.
The hardware is good, the performance is very nice for games and videos. The problem is the Lenovo software, which is HORRIBLE. It's slow and has a ton of bugs, causing overheat and poor battery life.
k5 plus has so many roms on xda its crazy.
Even has pie roms. Thats good because stock rom gets slow eventually.
Only problem i found is that since it is one of those first 4g devices when in 4g it drains battery fast no matter the rom.

The worst phone ever bought I wasted my money .. I have this device since almost 2 years now and I'm waiting to change it as fast as I can .. horrible battery life horrible processeur front camera is bad .. otherwise it has heat problems and lag also not durable material easily scratched
1. Install a custom rom to really unlock the potential of this phone. I am currently running android pie.
2. You can get aftermarket batteries I am using Losoncoer batteries from alibaba. they are great and I bought a couple with a charger so I can switch them out when they are exhausted.

After 11 months started to heat extremely and finally stopped working while in a call. The Lenovo maintenance were not able to fix it.
So much of Heating problem And battery backup is only for Rearly 2hours and
This device is controversial. Although it's quite old, I would recoomend it to someone who wants a real bang-for-the-buck deal. I bought mine in june-2016, and it is working flawless since then. I installed the AospExtended Rom (Android 7.1.1) and there is no hardware failure, no battery issues, no heat, no thing. But before I bought it, at the time I was searching a substitute for my good old Samsung S2 (which I kept as my main device for 5 years and, in my opinion, is the best smartphone ever made), I noticed many complains against the K5, and after reading a lot, I discovered that the units made before May/2016 had some serious hardware problems, so I got to the store and looked for a device with a "good" built (one with "week 16" in its box label, built after the "week 14 problem").
I still reccomend this device for those who don't want to spend too much money for a smartphone, but still want a good, capable device. Yup, there's no finger-print recognition, there's no iris recognition, but it's a helluvagood phone - specialy for its price. Just make sure to buy a post-april/2016 unit.
I had purchased lenovo k5 about 15 months back but its display not works properly. I visit customer care office and i advised to replace its display that"s cost Rs.4250/-. after 15 months who will spend above amount for repair. so I will not suggest any one to by this phone
