Lenovo K3 Note available to order globally for just $160
The K3 Note is an Android-based smartphone that Lenovo released earlier this year, first in its home country (China), and then in India, where it seems to be hugely popular. If you're not based in either of these two countries, you can now order the K3 Note via retailer PandaWill, which is selling the handset for $159.99, saying it can ship it worldwide for free.

Usually, $160 gets you a smartphone with modest features, but the Lenovo K3 Note is an exception. The handset's highlights include a 5.5-inch display with 1080 x 1920 pixels, a 13 MP rear camera with dual LED flash, a 5 MP front-facing camera, 2 GB of RAM, and 16 GB of expandable internal memory. The K3 Note also comes with dual SIM support, an octa-core MediaTek MT6752 processor clocked at 1.7 GHz, and Android 5.0 Lollipop. Unfortunately, the device doesn't have support for US LTE bands.

PandaWill is offering the Lenovo K3 Note in two color versions: yellow & black, and white & black. So, is anyone interested in buying this phone?

Deos Honduras not fall under the 'worldwide' category?

I agree with javy108 (though I'm not from Honduras too) but comparing Lenovo from the likes of Apple and Samsung that could ship their phones almost every corners of the world, Lenovo isn't that strong with global shipments yet..

Hmmm.. looking at Lenovo being #1 manufacturer of PC worldwide, I would say they have a great shipping logistics in place already. All they need is more demand for their smart phones.

I'd be on this if it wasn't for lack of US Bands.

I read a few people making it work on T-Mobile USA

It only works in areas that T-Mobile has refarmed the 1900 band. The K3 Note has: 2G: 900 / 1800 / 1900 3G: 850 / 900 / 1900 / 2100 It should work fine on AT&T's 3G network.

This looks interesting and the deal as well. This CPU is better than the 6753.

I ma the happy owner of one of this Lenovo K3 Note yellow color and I love it!!! It arrives with a Vibe UI made for Chinese market and it has a handful of annoying Chinese apps installed!!! I root the phone, installed the Limoncello ROM form the Spanish dual sim community and this works like a charm!!! I changed the Samsung Galaxy Alpha I was using for the last 6 months because I am upset with Sammy for the lack of support for this device on witch I spend over 500 Euros and they still not updating it to Lollipop!!! Now all I wanna say I got a better phone full HD resolution 2 days battery life with over 6 hours on screen time all for 136 Euros shipping included!!! Folks this one is a keeper and yes the awesome thing is that the dual SIM support is great, the 2 lines are active simultaneously!!!

Sound like a great device. I just bought a Lenovo K920 from eBay. Testing it out now. Love the 6" QHD screen and 78% screen to body ratio. Very sleek close to Note 3 in term of handling. I installed custom lollipop ROM. Using it for the last few days.

If you are worried about updates why would you ever by a Chinese phone?

Because Lenovo is a major manufacturer, not some cheap flyby chinese cell phone company?

Folks, how's the call quality on this?

Dual mics setup, + dolby digital enabled with the Limonchello ROM sounds great and in call quality is no worst than I had on the Galaqy Alpha and it is on par with my wife's Lumia 925, it is that good really!!! WiFi speeds are also great, pages loading fast with the Chrome browser, each passing day loving more this phone!!! Really not a fluke they sold out in India over the flash sale they had last week!!! Guys do not think too much about it it wont cost you more than a entry level phone get it unlock it and load the ROM you like one it, there is even a Meizu M2 Flyme ROM mod for this phone and all work awesomely...

Yeah Lenovo is rising with their latest phones. I got the Lenovo A5000 to replace my Sony Z3 Compact. Got it for 1/4 the price of Sony. Great battery life... I squeezed nearly 12 hours of SoT... unbelievable. It runs a lot cooler than the Z3C, no overheating and it's a mid range phone that performs fluidly. Well done Lenovo.

Yes, I guess Lenovo smart phones are even better bang for bucks than Xiaomi phones, which is incredible value itself. Why buy expensive flagships if Lenovo K3 Note is pretty great? If K3 Note is sign of things to come, then entry phones will have nearly closed the performance gap with flagship phones, and premium phone sellers will be in trouble.
