Why Does the Phone Stand Out?
According to experts, one of the most attractive aspects of the phone is that it is rich in features such as brilliant display, good resolution, and the strong screen glass that lets you watch videos and films without the worry of damage. The speakers of the phone also are capable of providing a proper multimedia experience and the sound is absolutely free of distortion and thus crisper. The phone’s 3 mic system filters out any surrounding sound and lets you chat for hours. The phone’s camera and memory capacity are commendable as well. Since it is a light phone, people can actually use it as their portable camera. The superb operating system also allows many apps to run on the phone at the same time and the multitasking experience is unlike anything you will ever see. The phone also has some cool security features like gesture support and fingerprint sensors. The dual SIM facility also allows people to keep their work and personal lives on different tracks. It can also support 4G connectivity, which will address the internet speed problems of so many smartphone users in India. The battery is also strong enough to support many operations at the same time.
Target User Group
From the looks of it the phone has been designed primarily keeping the young urban sector in mind. This includes students and young professionals working in the corporate and other service sectors with access to more money and better internet speeds. However, as may be guessed from the features, the phone can and perhaps will be used by people in the upper echelons of the corporate sector.
Is Price Commensurate With Specs?
Lenovo Vibe K4 Note is available for a best price of INR 11,998. As far as expert opinion is concerned, the phone has been priced in a competitive manner, which perhaps implies that users will surely get their money’s worth.
