rotegaonka, 04 Jun 2016Dear it is overheating means overheating .
we are writing this opinioin to save others money ... moreCompare this phone with similar Snapdragon 616 powered phones then come back and tell me if it's overheating.
Have you ever measured the temperature with a proper equipment? I did check the back cover while playing a game and it didn't get past 37ºc in a 25ºc ambient temperature. Checked with an infra-red thermometer. That's NOT overheating,
Just checked the example I gave on the original post, my Lumia 1520 playing Beach Buggy Racing on full HD, the same game I used to play on my K5 Plus. It got over 53ºc on the top of the phone, to the right side of the camera. (Except I do not play it on full HD on the K5 because Adreno 405 lags a bit doing so)
I have told you it's more about the warm feeling you get from the aluminum back cover that spreads out more easily than anything else.
I'm not Lenovo's promo guy but in my country it's a great phone for it's price, K5 Plus costs about U$230 while Samsung A5 (2016) with about the same specs costs U$416, the new Moto G4 U$343, the old Moto G3 U$290. Please note that all models I listed are "base models"
About the battery life keep in mind it's only a 2750mAh battery and this device has a very bright 5' screen which doesn't seem to do well on auto brightness, if you don't know how to manage your power draining apps and screen brightness then I'm sorry, you better off with a 5000mAh+ phone
Please donot forget. Your user name of google account of the mobile...whike restore your vibek5 phone ask your verification of google account so please donot forget your id....

nitzero, 02 Jun 2016Stop spreading comments about overheating, it does not, it's just the heating sensation caused... moreTrue dat! Very nice review... Basically Lenovo k5 plus is a great handset.
Premium looks with this price range nd everything is superb about this smartphone.
Stop spreading comments about overheating, it does not, it's just the heating sensation caused by the aluminum back cover, I've played mid to heavy games for several hours and the battery drain was really minimal. It does get warm but does not overheats. Trust me, I've had enough phones to tell you what overheating is, just like my Lumia 1520 at the top of the phone, feels like it's gonna melt anytime soon.
The memory usage on ANY Android will usually get used up quickly for caching, that's how *nix Kernel works, so also stop spreading rumors this phone is bloated or not enough memory. Lenovo was kind enough to let us manage auto start applications and blacklist what you do not want.
The camera IS quite bad but you do get what you pay for, however if you take your time focusing in good light it does take decent pictures, also the macros are great.
Another thing this phone is just excellent is signal connectivity, it gets above average signals on both SIM cards compared to my old Galaxy A5.
