Reviews for the Lenovo K6

82.5% Lenovo K6 Smartphone Review | Notebookcheck
Price cutter. Lenovo's K6 5-inch middle-class smartphone sells for less than 200 Euro (~$215), but its robust hardware features put it in a category normally reserved for much pricier competitors.
Lenovo K6 quick review – the K lineup is trendy once again
Source: Laptop Media English
Lenovo K6 offers noticeable changes over its predecessor, although they are only a few months apart. Improvements are seen in the design section which is again represented by a metal construction but this time with rounded corners and edges, making it look a tad more elegant. Another pleasant addition is the fingerprint scanner, which has turned into a must have for a mid-range device. Additionally, there’s been a bump in the display resolution – from HD to Full HD, which is not that big of a difference for our eye but again you are provided with higher image detail.

Lenovo K6 is specifically for camera lovers because it has 13MP back camera and 8MP front camera whereas the battery section has 3000 mAh battery moreover the device is equipped with fingerprint authenticator. One thing which Lenovo K6 lacks is bigger RAM instead of 2GB RAM, except this all features are decent and they have worked perfectly. Lenovo K6 can easily fulfill daily requirements in affordable price.

Source: Gadget Show English
At an affordable price of Rs 9,999, the Lenovo K6 Power offers some really good specifications such as a large 4,000mAh battery, 3GB RAM, 13MP rear camera and a Full HD display. In the sub 10K price segment, it's definitely one of the best smartphones you can get.

Lenovo K6 Power Review
Source: Fone Arena English
The Lenovo K6 Power is a solid offering from Lenovo and it manages to strike a very good balance between performance and value for money. Our biggest gripe was the camera performance which proved to be quite underwhelming.

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.


80.61%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
