Lenovo launched the Vibe K5 Note smartphone in India earlier this month starting at Rs. 11,999. We already brought you the hands-on impressions, unboxing and benchmarks, here we have the camera samples from the smartphone. The K5 Note has a 13-megapixel camera on the back with dual-tone LED flash, phase-detection auto-focus (PDAF), f/2.2 aperture. It has a 8-megapixel camera on the front with 77.4-degree wide-angle lens and f/2.2 aperture.
The camera UI is simple with toggles for flash, front camera and HDR. The menu option lets you choose Panorama and also has several Effects (Mono, Sepia, Negative, Memory, Gorgeous, Elegant and Cool). Settings option lets you choose aspect ratio (16:9, 4:3 and 1:1), adjust white balance, ISO (100 to 1600), enable geo location, option to use volume button as a shutter key and more.
Coming to the image quality, daylight shots are decent, but some images seem dull if the environment is not bright. Thanks to PDAF, auto focus is quick. Macro shots are good and HDF shots came out well, but some images are too bright. The phone doesn’t have a manual mode. Low-light shots have a lot of noise. Images with flash are decent. The dual-tone flash helps to bring natural tone and is not over powering.
The 8MP front-facing camera is good for selfies and video chats. Colors are vibrant and the images are sharp as well. It also has beautify mode. Overall the phone has a decent camera.

It can record videos at 1080p full HD resolution at 30 fps. Video is decent. Audio is crisp since it has a secondary microphone. Sadly it doesn’t have slow motion recording. Check out the video sample below.
We will bring you the complete review of the smartphone soon.
