Review: Lenovo K6 Note Impresses With Its Battery Life & Looks
Lenovo has emerged as a strong player in the Indian smartphone market. With Motorola also under its wing, the Chinese electronics major has taken some right decisions as far as products and their pricing are concerned.
The latest offering in Lenovo's K series is the K6 Note, starting at Rs 13,999 for the 32GB version. Should you buy it? Read on to find out.
The phone has a metal and glass construction, which lends it a premium look. It feels great in your palm too. But it's very prone to slippage, so handle it with utmost care.
The screen is 5.5" and quite vivid, even in sunlight. What can be seen on the phone is Lenovo's custom Pure UI, overlaid on Android 6 Marshmallow. The smartphone comes in two RAM variants - 3GB and 4GB. Both the versions have a Snapdragon 430 processor, which runs all the average apps and activities minus any visible lags.
The battery department left us really impressed. The battery lass comfortably for a day and a half, while being used for the internet hotspot, photography and social media sharing. Proving that the phone's power management does justice to the 4,000 mAh battery.
Getting good shots is also pretty easy, with the scene assist modes adjusting the exposure, focus and colours automatically. There's a 16 megapixel camera at the back and an 8 megapixel camera at the front. The photos clicked on phone's rear camera turn out really well-detailed, especially for social media sharing purposes.
The Lenovo K6 Note runs on Snapdragon 430, which is offered by competitors priced under Rs 10,000, such as the Xiaomi Redmi 3S. Being marketed as a VR device at a mid-range price, Lenovo should have considered a Snapdragon 630 or a similar chipset.
The fingerprint sensor felt a tad bit slow in unlocking our review device.
Also, the K6 Note asks for a lot of careful handling because the screen is not Gorilla Glass. Yes, that breaks our heart already.
Why Buy It?
The Lenovo K6 Note promises affordable VR (with AntVR, sold separately) and has a good battery life, along with a decent camera, and this package ensures a comfortable smartphone experience.
If Lenovo's sister brand Motorola's G4 Plus is not your type, this one is worth considering.
