Lenovo K6 Power review – Redmi Note 4 is better!

The Lenovo K6 Power is a snapdragon 430 powered handset that comes with dual SIM slots and houses a 4000 mAh non-removable battery. This handset is priced at Rs. 9,999 with 3GB RAM and 32GB ROM. Read this review to know how the handset performed.

I bought this handset from Flipkart, there was some issue I have mentioned it in this post. For the review I have ignored this issue, assuming it is a hardware problem and the replacement unit will not be having this issue.

Update : I got a replacement from Flipkart and the mic on the new handset is working fine.

Unboxing : Inside the Lenovo K6 Power box pack you will get the handset, user manual, warranty card, standard quality earphone, data cable and travel charger – 5.2V/2A. SAR value as mentioned on the box : 0.600 W/kg @ 1g head and 0.972 W/kg @ 1g body.

Design, Display and OS

The Lenovo K6 Power is packed inside a metallic body with curvy sides. I bought the grey color version for the review, build quality and finishing is very good. There is a silver lining on the back (top and bottom).

It’s a dual SIM handset you can use 2x nano SIM or nano SIM + micro SD card. 4G with VoLTE (Jio worked) is supported. There is LED notification and good number of sensors – accelerometer, proximity, light, hall, magnetic and gyro.

Screen is 5 inches IPS supporting 1920 x 1080 pixels resolution. Color reproduction, viewing angels and touch response are pretty good.

Lenovo K6 Power is running 32 bit Android Marshmallow 6.0.1 out of the box.

Memory and Storage

This K6 Power I bought came with 3GB RAM and 32GB ROM. On first boot you will get around 22GB free space and on an average 1.2GB free RAM. OTG is supported you can connect external pen drive.

Performance

Inside the hood the Lenovo K6 Power is using Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 octa core processor clocked at 1.4GHz coupled with Adreno 505 GPU. Now this is a 64bit chipset however the operating system running i.e. Marshmallow 6.0.1 is 32 bit. Not a big issue though but the combination makes no sense.

Performance was smooth, lag free and heat-up was under control max battery temperature I encountered was 39 degrees. Lenovo K6 Power cannot play 4K videos.

Benchmark

Gaming

I played Asphalt 8 in high quality mode, it played well, smooth no lags and heat up was under control. Check Lenovo K6 power video review for gaming action.

Camera

There is 13MP camera on the rear and a 8MP camera on the front. Camera interface comes with SMART mode and artistic HDR that is pretty impressive, however camera quality is average, just good for viewing on mobile and for social sharing.

This handset can shoot FHD videos and slow motion videos. You can check the Lenovo K6 Power video review for sample FHD and slow mo video.

Others

Sound is loud and clear. There are two speakers on the back – handset supports Dolby ATMOS and it sounds awesome. Finger print sensor on the back is decently fast and accurate. No other issues found.

Battery

The 4000 mAh non-removable battery does a very good job. On a full charge you can expect 6 to 8 hours of nonstop moderate to heavy usage or up to 2 days of moderate mixed usage.

Lenovo K6 Power Battery Performance (time / battery % drop / estimated battery temperature)

  • Running Benchmark app – 10 minutes / 2% / 34 degrees
  • Asphalt 8 game play – 26 minutes / 7% / 39 degrees
  • FHD video playback with full brightness (WiFi /4G on) – 32 minutes / 7% / 33 degrees.

It took me 2 hours 30 minutes to charge the handset from 12% to 100% using wall charger.

Verdict

The Lenovo K6 Power is a good handset that performs well, camera is average also its running 32 bit OS on a 64 bit hardware. This handset is competing with the Redmi Note 4 and when you compare the Redmi Note 4 with the Lenovo K6 power the Redmi Note 4 wins in all areas (camera quality is average on both handsets but slightly better on Redmi Note 4) .

Note 4 is more powerful, gives slightly better battery backup and camera is also a little better when compared with K6 Power. Hence makes sense to go for the Note 4.

Overall rating 3.8 out of 5

Lenovo K6 Power is available for Rs. 9,999.
