By just looking at the colors of the font above, we can safely say that the Elophone P9000 got several aces on sleeves compared to that of the Lenovo VIBE K4 Note. The main advantages are newer and more powerful chipset, thus the better CPU and GPU, bigger RAM, twice as much ROM, higher front camera resolution, latest micro USB type-C and wireless charging support.
Meanwhile, the Lenovo VIBE K4 Note got the upper hand for having bigger battery, HiFi audio and a more affordable price tag. Moreover, users can purchase it both from the offline and online channels unlike the Elephone P9000, which is only available through Lazada.
In terms of freebies, those who love VR will surely root for the K4 Note, not only because of the free VR Glasses, but also because of the TheaterMax technology, which converts any video or game to become worthy for VR consumption. On the other hand, those who love the convenience of wireless charging will certainly pick the P9000.
Of course, there are other factors aside from specs that affects the buying decision of the public, for example the design and build quality of the phone, after sales support as well as their perception of the brand itself. That being said, we want to know which side are you - the Lenovo VIBE K4 Note or Elephone P9000?
