Build Quality, Design and Form Factor
The build quality of the device is great with metal at the back side which does make it quite good to hold in hands and gives the device a premium finish as well in looks. It does not feel bad in terms of the design as it’s a unibody kind of device with non removable back cover and it gets really slimmer at 6.9 mm. However the overall dimensions of the device does make it larger to hold in one hand with a weight of the 162 grams but its not too heavy as well, you well get used to size of of the and form factor of the phone.
The rear camera on this device is 13 MP shooter with Auto Focus support and LED Flash which does a pretty good job in daylight and it can also record 1080p video at 30 fps as well. The front camera is 2 MP fixed focus can be good for doing a HD video chat and decent enough for self portrait shots. Some camera samples are below with which you can get an idea about photo quality.
Display, Memory and Battery Backup
The display is 5.5 inch IPS LCD capacitive touch screen with 1920 x 1080 HD resolution with pixel density of 401 pixels per inch. The viewing angles of the display are also quite wide, you can see the display from extreme viewing angles as well which makes this device good enough for multimedia experience. Color reproduction of the display on this device is good and brightness levels is also good. In built memory of the device is 16 Gb out of which around 7.69 Gb is available to the user and there is no supported to memory expansion as well, so no microSD card slot. The battery backup is around 1 day with moderate usage, it can last for around one day if you don’t play a lot of games and do not watch a lot of videos.
Software, Benchmarks and Gaming
The software UI on the device is heavily optimized in terms of looks but its snappy and there is no lag in UI which is something we really being a custom UI is it quite fast, it does have some cool animations as well. It performs pretty good on the gaming front but we noticed little graphic glitch while playing some graphic intensive games like MC4 and Frontline Commando D Day but it does not affect the overall gaming experience much. The benchmarks scores are given below.
- Quadrant Standard Edition: 5755
- Antutu Benchmark: 27940
- Nenamark2: 60.1 fps
- Multi Touch: 5 point
Sound, Video and Navigation
The sound quality from the loudspeaker the is loud enough and the voice from ear piece is clear, but the loud speaker is placed at the back side of the device, so it will get blocked at times or at least will get muffled when you place the device flat on a table. It can play HD videos at 720p without any issues but some 1080p videos might have audio and video sync issues. It can also be used for GPS navigation with the help of assisted GPS and it does have magnetic sensor for precise navigation. You will need internet connectivity to use navigation on the device as it requires some data download to lock the GPS.

Conclusion and Price
Lenovo K900 is a great device with pretty good and decent hardware which performs pretty good on day to day usage, it gives you a great build quality, large Full HD display with good pixel density. It is available for a price of around Rs. 26900 which is little bit high as per us, if you can get it for around 25k it makes more sense but there are some limitations as well like no memory expansion and non removable battery which are again not a deal breaker anyways but they does matter to many out there.
