Lenovo K6 Power review

The K6 Power is really for those who still prefer to have a smaller device, and as such, it's only real competition is the Redmi 3S Prime, which it handily beats in nearly every aspect. Overall, for the price, the Lenovo K6 Power is a pretty solid choice for those who want a compact, 5-inch smartphone with stellar battery life.

70% Lenovo K6 Power review: A budget smartphone that could do with a bit more power
Source: Tech2.in.com English
The Lenovo K6 Power’s price places it at rather awkwardly in the budget-smartphone lineup. The Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 is available at the same price and offers a Snapdragon 650, which is at least 30 percent faster than the K6 Power. The Xiaomi Redmi 3S Prime is cheaper and offers the same performance and way better battery life, albeit with a lower-resolution screen.

73% Lenovo K6 Power Review
Source: Think Digit English
Good performance, decent battery, reliable build and good camera, those are the reasons to consider the Lenovo K6 Power. It is a really good budget smartphone. Barring the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 16GB, there’s no other phone that surpasses the K6 Power in any way. Given that you get an extra gig of RAM with this one and double the storage, this is a very good smartphone to buy.

Considering that the sub-Rs. 10,000 price segment has some of the most popular handsets, it will be interesting to see how the Lenovo K6 Power fares against its competition. Those looking for alternatives can consider the Xiaomi Redmi 3S Prime, if they like MIUI more than Vibe UI and need a better camera.

80% Lenovo K6 Power review: Budget smartphone with extensive battery life
Source: The Indian Express English
Lenovo K6 Power is another phone in the company’s great lineup of K phones. It scores simply because of the UI and battery; the overall performance is not too bad either. Of course, the phone will compete against the Redmi 3S Prime, which is similar in terms of specs, except for the lack of a full HD display.

75% Lenovo K6 Power review: The little battery champ
Source: India Today English
The K6 Power is an unassuming phone. It's not flashy. But it is good enough for most people, especially if you have a budget of Rs 10,000 for your next phone. As noted earlier, get a Redmi if you can find one. But if that is not possible, the K6 Power will get the job done. It is fast enough and has lots of storage, has great battery life and has a camera that, when used with some care, will give you pretty nice results (check image samples). From a phone that costs Rs 10,000, you can't -- and shouldn't -- expect more.

Comment

Model: The Lenovo Vibe K6 Power is a well-rounded smartphone. It is formed with metal as its main material. This makes the Vibe K6 a durable device with a fine, polished finish. The dimensions measuring at 141.9 x 70.3 x 8.2 mm and its weight of 140 g make the smartphone an idyllic choice for one-handed operation. It can also be easily slipped into pockets. For its display, it is fitted with a 5.0-inch IPS screen with 1080 x 1920 pixels resolution at 441 ppi pixel density. The lack of Corning Gorilla Glass can be easily remedied with a screen protector but some might find this to be somewhat of a letdown. After all, no screen protector out there can match the Gorilla Glass’s toughness. The narrowness of the display may not appeal certain users; the high pixel density nevertheless makes visuals and images appear clear and crisp. Under its hood, it is powered by the popular Qualcomm MSM8937 Snapdragon 430 processor. This platform enables this smartphone to perform remarkably even when running demanding apps. With 2 GB RAM, multi-tasking on this phone is a breeze. For something with very limited hardware capabilities, the Vibe K6 Power does the performance part quite well.

Internal memory on the Vibe K6 ranges between 16 and 32 GB and the storage capacity is expandable to up to 256 GB via a microSD card. It also comes with a fingerprint scanner, which sits beneath the camera. Gestures may be customized for easy access and security. Lenovo ships this device both in single and dual SIM mode. Those who are concerned with its camera will definitely be attracted by its 13 MP rear facing camera, which is capable of shooting 1080p videos at 30 fps. Its 8MP front facing camera allows users to indulge in taking good quality selfies. One notable feature of the Lenovo Vibe K6 Power is its impressive sound system as it is enhanced with Dolby Atmos audio. This dispenses the need of carrying about an alternative Bluetooth speaker for blasting tunes with remarkable audio quality. The 4000 mAh non-removalbe lithium ion battery is capable of up to 37.00 hours talktime. If there is one thing Lenovo could consider, it is upgrading the microUSB port to USB type C port for faster charging. The Vibe comes pre-installed with Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Users may have qualms over the compact form factor of this smartphone yet this device will still appeal to those who do not require wider screens. It may lack an extra coat of shield on the display and still retain the conventional microUSB port. Yet these are not deficiencies which will rule out the Lenovo Vibe K6 Power as a highly rated smartphone.

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.


77.2%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
