The Lenovo K8 Plus is another smartphone in the budget segment that follows the trend of a dual camera setup. The stock android experience and a dual camera setup on the back bring the Lenovo K8 Plus in a direct competition to Xiaomi’s recently launched Mi A1. Interestingly, with almost similar features, Mi A1 is priced slightly higher than the K8 Plus. Again, a solid octa core processor and sufficient RAM make the Lenovo K8 Plus a device worth considering.
