Lenovo K900: Walang Iwanan nga ba?
The Lenovo K900 is probably the only non-LTE smartphone above Php20,000 that we would ever consider buying. Heck, we didn’t even bother asking for a media discount or a review unit. As soon as it came out we went straight to SM Megamall and bought the unit in full. We’ve only had a few days with it but we can already say that it was worth every centavo. We’ll spill all the details in our full review but for now we’d like to share with you guys our unboxing as well as our initial experience with it.
As usual let’s quickly rundown the specifications.

- 1.8Ghz Dual-core Intel Atom Z2580 CPU
- PowerVR SGX544 GPU
- 2GB RAM

What’s missing? Two things. LTE and expandable storage. This phone would have been an absolute killer if it had those two features. We’d gladly pay more to see them on the device. Hopefully Lenovo will launch a K900 V2 or something like that in the next few months.
Unboxing and Initial Review Video
We prepared a short video which features the unboxing and a first look at the K900. Check it out below because it will give you a better feel and idea on how really good looking this phone is.

Hands down the best looking smartphone/phablet available in the Philippines
The Lenovo K900 is sure to turn heads each time you whip it out. First, it’s not made of plastic. It’s all metal and glass. Next, it’s ridiculously crazy thin for a 5.5-inch device. Here’s a photo of the K900 in side view so you guys get a better appreciation for it.
When you turn it on it becomes even better. Despite having a massive 5.5-inch display, the resolution is 1920×1080 which comes out to around 401 pixels per inch. Images, text, videos, icons, and everything else that appears on the screen is absolutely gorgeous. It’s as if they’re jumping out of the display to you. That’s why we find it really frustrating that Lenovo didn’t put expandable storage on this thing. It would have been a perfect on-the-go media player thanks to the big screen, portable form factor, and the awesome display quality.

When it comes to performance, the Lenovo K900 is a screamer. While it just has a dual-core processor, it’s an INTEL dual-core processor. This thing just roars power and you can feel it when you fire up graphics and memory intensive applications like games and content editors. We already reported during our first encounter with the K900 that it breaks the 20,000 mark for the Antutu Benchmark Test.
Through sheer impressive design and the power of the internals, we’re actually willing to overlook the lack of LTE connectivity and expandable storage. That’s how much we’re loving the K900 and this is the first time we’re actually saying that.
Full review coming soon
We’re currently using the Lenovo K900 as our daily driver now so expect our full review in a couple of days. As far as initial impressions though we’re very happy with it. it’s the type of gadget that just makes you smile each time you pick it up and look at it.
Yep, Kobe’s right folks. With the Lenovo K900, “walang iwanan”.
