In the ROM section, there is a 16GB one which can be expanded upto 32GB via micro SD card. It would be good, if the device has some more expandable storage like 64GB or 128GB.

During high-end gaming sessions, the device gets heated considerably. But, not more than a holdable temperature.
Lenovo Vibe K5 Plus Battery
