Reviews for the Lenovo Vibe K6 Note

Lenovo K6 and K6 Note Review
Source: Phone Arena English
So there you have it, the full picture of the new Lenovo K6 and K6 Note: affordable phones with great battery life, a fast fingerprint scanner and impressively loud dual speakers that do well in daily tasks. What they are not is pretty or well designed, and what they are most certainly NOT is good camera replacements.

Lenovo K6 Note Initial Review: Stiff Competition
Source: Unbox English
We’re still not completely sold with the K6 Note. It’s the most expensive entry in Lenovo’s K series of phones so far, priced at Php 11,999. At that price point it’s facing stiff competition from other mid-ranged devices, devices like the 5.5-inch Zenfone 3 Max and OPPO’s F1s to name a few. To help soften the blow, Lenovo is bundling a pair of nice-looking Bluetooh headphones with every purchase.

60% Lenovo K6 Note Review: Underpowered But Big On Performance

The K6 Note offers a large screen with solid build quality and display. You are going to love the camera and multiple useful features like Secure Zone that enables the user to keep some content and apps away from prying eyes.

Lenovo K6 Note Review: The K6 Power Clone with a Bigger Display?
Source: Tech PP English
The Lenovo K6 Note is priced at Rs. 13,999 for the 3GB/ 32 GB version and Rs. 14,999 for the 4 GB/ 64 GB version. As compared to the K6 Power which is priced at Rs 9,999, it comes with a bigger display, additional RAM and ROM (Rs. 14,999 version), an improved primary camera and dual LED flash. But apart from these features, the Lenovo’s K6 Note is more or less a twin of its lesser priced cousin, the K6 Power.

67% Lenovo K6 Note Review

The Lenovo K6 Note is not the best smartphone out there. With devices like the Coolpad Cool 1 available, it makes little sense to buy the K6 Note, even if you need something from the offline market. Most manufacturers are taking note of the offline space now, and while the Coolpad Cool 1 is already a much better device available offline, you could even wait a few months for more options to make it to the market.

Lenovo K6 Note review

All things considered, the Lenovo K6 Note won't steer you wrong. If it just so happens to be on the offer sheet over at your carrier of choice, don't hesitate to snatch one up. But then again, if you are on the open market and don't mind investing the extra effort, shopping around could, potentially yield a "feature mix" that may be better suited to your personal needs.

Lenovo K6 Note Review
Source: Fone Arena English
Overall, the Lenovo K6 Note is a decent smartphone with good build quality, decent display and of course the VR support, but the performance is just average. Suppose if you are a strict offline buyer, considering the lack of options, you can go with K6 Note as it is one of the best smartphones in the price range for offline buyers.

65% Lenovo K6 Note: An underpowered smartphone that tries to compete with much better rivals
Source: Tech2.in.com English
The Lenovo K6 Note with 3GB RAM and 32GB internal storage starts at Rs 13,999 in the country. The price has not dropped since its launch. But after having used it extensively and seen the performance, I would suggest that you go for Xiaomi Redmi 3S Prime as it is both powerful as well as provides a far greater value for money. If you don’t want to go for Xiaomi then you can go for Moto G4 or Moto G4 Plus.

80% Lenovo K6 Note review: For those who need big battery
Source: Gadget Show English
All in all, we found the Lenovo K6 Note to be a great budget device. Other than the slightly weaker processor, the smartphone is capable of doing all daily tasks efficiently. But if you still want more options in the same range, there is the Moto G4 Plus which has been doing really well in this segment. The newly-launched Cool 1 with its dual camera setup at the back is also a great option.

75% Lenovo K6 Note review: Just another Note in the wall
Source: India Today English
But if you are buying offline, go ahead with the K6 Note. If it is in a store, chances are that it will probably be the best phone in that store at its price point of Rs 13,999. Its biggest competition in the offline market is the Yu Yunicorn . The Yunicorn is a better looking phone and also has better screen. But in other aspects, it's a wash between these two. In fact, the Lenovo phone feels somewhat more polished in terms of software and performance. If offline shopping is what you are doing, I recommend the Lenovo K6 Note.

70% Lenovo K6 Note Review
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
Lenovo is one of the many companies in India that have invested heavily in establishing an online sales presence, and several models in the recent past have been online exclusives. With its new K6 Note however, the company wants to reach customers who like purchasing phones offline. The K6 Note offers a large screen and a basic VR experience through the affordable Ant VR headset, which is a great feature even if it isn't always practical. We like this phone's build quality and display, but we still would have liked a more powerful SoC.

Qualcomm Adreno 505: Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.

This display is quite big for a smartphone but frequently used for smartphones.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Lenovo: Lenovo ( "Le" as in the English word legend and "novo" (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company. From 2004, the company has been the largest laptop manufacturer in China and got the fourth largest manufacturer worldwide after the acquisition of IBM's PC division in 2005. In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company also produces monitors, projectors, servers, etc.

In 2011, Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer, owned the majority of the company. In 2014, Lenovo took over Motorola Mobility, which gave them a boost in the smartphone market.

From 2014 to 2016 Lenovo's market share in the global notebook market was 20-21%, ranking second behind HP. However, the distance decreased gradually. In the smartphone market, Lenovo did not belong to the Top 5 global manufacturers in 2016.


72.67%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
