We're getting a value vibe from the Lenovo Vibe K5 Plus
It seems like only five minutes ago you'd be forking out a few hundred bucks for a 4G phone with a high definition screen and an eight core processor, but times have changed, and now you get all that in the new Lenovo Vibe K5 plus for just $149.00.
It's on sale in emerging markets, so you won't be able to buy it in the US, or most of Europe.
But if you're in parts of Asia, India or South America and you have 150 bucks to spare, the K5 Plus looks like a solid android phone and if you're a little short, there's also a slightly cheaper version just called the K5, that has a lower power processor and a 720p screen.
The two phones come in silver gray or champagne gold.
They're identical from the outside with a metal back and chrome band around the edge that makes it look more than a little like an iPhone.
The back comes off so you can swap out the battery, add a memory card, and stick in
One or two sim cards.
So you can have your business and personal number in the same phone.
Both the k5 and k5 plus have [UNKNOWN] Qualcomm processors running Android 5.1 Lollipop, with a fairly light Lenovo skin on top.
One bonus feature is Dolby Atmos surround sound, which sends a nuance of sound from your movies and music, moving from ear to ear.
