We’re focusing here on the Lenovo K4 Note vs Huawei Honor 5X specifications and pricing rather than features and design, but it’s worth pointing out that these are both dual SIM handsets and they both have fingerprint sensors and stereo speakers. As far as the design is concerned that’s a case of individual preference, though the full metal build of the Honor 5X is likely to have plenty of appeal.

Looking at specs shows there’s not too much between them on this score. However, the Lenovo K4 Note has more RAM, NFC, and a slightly higher battery capacity while the Honor 5X is the slimmer of the two handsets. Ultimately this battle may be decided by brand loyalty, personal taste of design, and the price difference between the two.
