This is a great phone by Lenovo.Go for it without any hesitation!
MUST READ THIS!!
Box Contents:- 1.Phone itself (with built in battery),2.Sim Ejector Tool, 3.Warranty And User Guide 4.Power adaptor with USB cable
NO HEADPHONES YOU WILL GET!
Build Quality:- The phone has a Corning Gorilla Glass 3 (Which is an advantage over Redmi Note 4).This will protect the phone from scratches and the glass is very tough.The phone is made up of metal.Even the side buttons (volume button and power button).Only the top and bottom portion of the back panel is made up of plastic (This is necessary to allow better network reception)
Performance:- This phone is powered by Mediatek Helio P25 which is a new powerful chipset from Mediatek.I can easily play heavy games like Asphalt 8, Modern Combat 5,Real Racing 3 and many other games without any hiccups.I am using the 4GB ram version
The Antutu Score of this phone ranges from 68k-70k which is quite impressive
Heating :- I was sceptical about this phone as it had a Mediatek Chipset which is famous for heating issues but I was completely wrong.The maximum temperature I encountered after heavy gaming for hours was 43 degrees Celsius.This is quite impressive.
Software:- This phone is powered by stock Android 7.1.1.The software is fluid and is easy to use.It does not freeze or hang.Lenovo has officially promised Android Oreo to this device!!
Rating :- 5/5
Screen :- The screen is a 5.2 inch full HD panel with Gorilla Glass 3.Viewing angles are good and colour reproduction is good too.The screen is great for watching movies.The screen has a 2.5D glass
Sound:- It has Dolby Atmos built into it.A music lovers paradise.IT HAS TWO COUTOUTS IN THE BOTTOM BUT ONLY ONE IS A SPEAKER AND THE OTHER IS A MICROPHONE!!The sound from the speakers are loud and clear
Battery Life:- It has a 4000mah battery.The battery life is great.I get 12 hours screen on time which is impressive.For normal usage,the battery will easily last for 2 days and it will easily last for one day for heavy users.
Connectivity:- It supports Jio and Airtel 4G with VOLTE out of the box.100% tested??
Camera:- It has dual cameras on the back.The primary camera is of 13MP which the secondary in depth sensor is of 5MP.The pictures are good during daylight and are of okayish type during night.
It has bokeh effect which gives you DSLR like pictures.
The front camera is of 8MP.
Only problem with the camera is that it is limited to 1080p not 4k.
Rating :- 4/5
So these are the category wise reviews.
1.Full HD display with Corning Gorilla Glass 3
2.Helio P25 processor which handles heavy games without any problems.Heat is also less
3.Sound quality is great (Dolby Atmos)
4.Dual camera (which no other phone provides in this price)
6.Stock Android 7.1.1 (with promised update to Android Oreo). Finally Lenovo got rid of its Buggy Vibe UI
7.Charges from 0 to 100 in just over 2 hrs (No fast Charging but faster than normal)
9. DEDICATED MICRO SD CARD SLOT (NO HYBRID SLOT) USE 2 SIMS AND MICRO SD TOGETHER
10.Has FM Radio
11.Has some kind of Music key (glad that it can be used for other purposes too)
1.Camera could have been better.
2.There are some bugs which need to be fixed
3.No USB type C (not a deal breaker)
Bugs :- AS ON 21/12/17
1.Screen flickers when brightness is set to minimum (SOLVED)
2.The folder MTK log grows in size (SOLVED)
3.Frequent Bluetooth headset disconnection (NOT SOLVED)
4.Yellow Flash Issue (NOT SOLVED)
5.Notification doesnt work(except during charging)(SOLVED)(WORKS FOR ANY APP)(INCLUDING 3RD PARTY APP LIKE WHATSAPP)(SEPT.PATCH)
BUT THE GOOD THING IS THAT LENOVO HAS PROMISED FIXES TO THESE ISSUES SOON!!
Ans:- Yes.100% works.Tested with Jio
2.Sim tray type?
Ans:- Dedicated type (No Hybrid Sim)
3.Will we get Oreo?
Ans:- Yes.It is officially promised.
Ans:- Great battery.Gives you a lot of backup
5.Any heating issues?
Ans:- Absolutely no heating issues and no lags during? heavy games.
1. THE PHONE DOES NOT HAVE ANY GALLERY APP.MAKE SURE TO INSTALL A GALLERY APP FROM PLAYSTORE.
2.THE PHONE COMES WITH FEW BLOATWARES MAINLY FROM MICROSOFT LIKE MS WORD,ETC....ALL OF THEM CAN BE DISABLED.
3.You Will not find some features like Scheduled Power On/Off but that is expected as STOCK ANDROID does not have these features.
LENOVO DEVICES ARE NOT BAD GUYS;I HAVE A TAB 2 BOUGHT 2 YEARS AGO IT HAS NEVER TROUBLED ME
I hope that I was able to answer all your doubts.
MY SUGGESTION:- GO FOR THIS PHONE WITHOUT ANY HESITATION.
!!LENOVO HAS FINALLY RELEASED THE SOURCE CODE FOR K8 PLUS & CUSTOM ROM DEVELOPMENT IS IN PROGRESS.WE WILL HAVE STABLE ROMS SOON AND THIS WILL ENSURE THAT WE ALWAYS HAVE THE LATEST STABLE-BUG FREE OS VERSION!!
Thx Have a wonderful day:)

Phone kept on restarting from day one. The seller IndiFlashmart refused to accept return request within two days of delivery. Avoid buying this phone. Especially avoid this seller Indiflashmart.
