Overview

Now a well-known global name in the computing industry, Lenovo have successfully manufactured and marketed a wide range of affordable yet powerful laptops, tablets and computers. This success followed their purchase of IBM's PC operations in 2005.

Lenovo have manufactured smartphones and other mobile products in their native China since 2012 and have now moved to market these more globally. This has been helped by acquiring another established brand - Motorola Mobility - from Google, in 2015. Lenovo smartphones are still sold separately from Motorola branded devices, with some subtle differences between the two.

Design

The Lenovo Vibe K5 is geared towards the entry level owner in the same way as the Moto G, although the machined aluminium casing, Dolby Atmos speakers and extra storage put it in a slightly higher tier than Motorola's offering.

In the design of the K5 it is clear that Lenovo are looking to make their smartphone look like a premium device - the aluminium edging and glossy finishes are reminiscent of much more expensive products.

The overall design language also has a very similar feel to Apple's iPhone range. This is no bad thing, it's very impressive for a phone to look this good at such a low price point, and there are enough of Lenovo's own subtle design quirks to make it appear unique when set next to other devices.

Software

Android 5.1 Lollipop powers the K5, with Lenovo's own interface design on top. This removes the standard app drawer from Android meaning all your apps are installed to the homescreen; you can still arrange them into folders as you see fit.

Alongside the standard suite of Google apps and services such as the Play Store, Maps, Hangouts and Google Play Music & Videos, you will also find some extra applications including Guvera Music, Route 66 Navi & Maps, i-Free eBook Store, the UC Browser.

Tap the Frog, Asphalt 8, Green Farm 3, Real Football 2015 & Spiderman Ultimate Power are all also pre-installed so you can get a feel for how the K5 handles games. Should you want more, the Gamestore app provides a dedicated storefront for games aside from the Play Store.
