  1. I have doubt between Lenevo A6000 & K3. Which one to buy please suggest. Does K3 have 720p HD video recording ???

  2. On this price range you should go with Asus zenfone 5 which is available onflipkart only at 8k which is affordable with great specs and with 2gb ram

  3. Its not made for competing against yureka or xiamoi. K3 introduced in china for beating redmi 1s and Hawaii 7k phone. Lenovo A6000 will costs 7k in India.

  4. I am using a Redmi 1s for the past 2 months, it is a great phone, great screen even if it is HD only, excellent camera quality, even better than my Galaxy Note 2, good battery back up, what more is expected in Rs 5999.I use it on wi-fi, both at home and at work..with least use at 3G.rest is all needless hype and quite fruitless discussion. For my next phone i will look for a Xiaomi phone, when there is wide availability of viable 4G AT REASONABLE prices at around 6-7k. There is no need to keep changing phones, just because a new model has been introduced by the various manufacturers, in order to entice lots of consumers, which they do every month.

  5. Flop flop flop..: (
    1.Only 8gb instead of 16 gb
    2. Only 8MP primary camera
    3. At least 1.5 gb Ram should be there at this price.
    This phone cannot beat Micromax Yureka!! thumbs down

  6. In these days, when a new phone is coming in every day, some ground rules may be useful
    Here are two good ones for those buying in the 10-20k range
    1) Don’t buy a device without at least 1080p resolution. The difference between HD and 1080p is clearly noticeable when reading and browsing the web and eyestrain is greatly reduced in 1080p. In these days of rapidly falling prices, avoid a compromise there. Also avoid devices with a higher resolution than that as they needlessly drain battery without producing a noticeable difference in user experience
    2) Avoid devices that don’t come with a guaranteed Lollipop update. Your phone will feel old in just 5-6 months(or even less) when devices with Lollipop out of the box start hitting the market. And the resale value of a device stuck on an older OS will not be good. Stick to companies like Asus, Sony, etc. Chinese companies(including Lenovo) are better avoided at this point even though their products are pretty decent.

    For those buying tablets, the best options are the Nexus 2013 and the Sony Xperia Z Ultra(with a 6.4 inch screen and flash less camera, it’s a small tablet really) are great options. The Z Ultra is down from an original price of 44 k and with a Snapdragon 800 processor, 2 GB Ram, 64 GB expandable storage, waterproof feature, 1080p triluminous display and a guaranteed Lollipop upgrade(already rolled out in fact) is a great buy at the price.

    1. Not everyone has money to burn. Especially students budget of more than 15000โ‚น is impossible. So we cannot buy branded phones that is why people buy these budget Chinese phones. But they are compromising on security.

      1. They’re compromising more than that. I don’t see any device not on Android 5.0 having a resale value of even 5 k in 6 months time. So it’s actually smarter to invest slightly more money and get a device with guaranteed updates now. Otherwise you will actually lose more money in the bargain

  7. specifications looks same as that of k3…..looks like k3 will be China specific model.

  8. This is Direct Competition to Redmi 2.

    However, Spec. wise there is no comparison with YU or REDMI NOTE.

  9. This is lenovo k3 only with same design and same specification but priced it higher. Not fair lenovo.

  10. I don’t see any features in this beating the likes of Yu Yureka, or even Redmi Note 4G. It will be a tough game for Lenovo. If lenovo wants to compete with Redmi 2s, then they have to price it appropriately, maybe around 8k.

  11. Gogi, is lenovo a trusted brand like samsung,sony,htc etc and what about aftersale service because I live in remote area Shillong.
