First things first though – that name call for a little clarification. The K5 family consists of three models so far, the plain Vibe K5, the Vibe K5 Pblus we have here, and the Vibe K5 Note. While some makers use the Plus to identify a larger screen, here it denotes the Full-HD resolution as opposed to the regular K5’s 720p, and a Snapdragon 616 instead of a Snapdragon 415. And that’s the entire list of differences. It’s the Vibe K5 Note that stands out, being the phablet of the bunch. A 5.5-inch Full-HD screen, Helio P10 chipset and a fingerprint sensor, an 8MP selfie camera and a larger battery clearly put the Note a notch above its siblings. It’s a whole different matter why Lenovo has the K4 Note and the K5 Note both at the same time with only marginal differences in specs.
