Lenovo K6 Note Hardware & Performance Review

Lenovo K6 Note Hardware & Performance Review

Specifications: 5.5-inch IPS (1920 x 1080 pixels), octa core Snapdragon 430 processor, 3/4GB RAM, 32/64GB storage, dual SIM, expandable storage, 16MP rear camera, 8MP front camera, fingerprint scanner, 4G, WiFi, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS, 4,000mAh battery, Android 6.0, 169 grams. 

With the K6 Note, Lenovo is trying to get back in the offline segment where competing brand sare gaining market share. 

The K6 Note is successor to the Lenovo K5 Note launched last year. It slots in between the Lenovo K6 Power and the Lenovo P2 and is actually Lenovo’s first offering in a series meant exclusively for the offline market. Competitors like Oppo, Gionee and Vivo have gained a lot of ground in the offline space by offering exclusives. This mid-range device comes in two variants: 3GB RAM with 32GB storage and 4GB RAM with 64GB storage. Our review is based on the 3GB RAM variant of the device. 

In terms of looks and design, the K6 Note is very similar to the K5 Note — the front is dominated by thw 5.5-inch display with touch sensitive navigation keys under it. On the back panel, you’ll see the camera module, dual LED flash and fingerprint scanner placed vertically. The only visible difference between the two is placement of speaker grill. The K6 Note has a full metal unibody design and at 169 grams, it does not feel too heavy for its size. 

The 5.5-inch display has a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels which keeps things crisp. Colour output is good and you can even switch to a ‘vibrant’ mode in settings if you prefer richer colours. A brightness protection mode reduces brightness for low light environments — its not the same as a blue light filter (it only dims the brightness instead of changing the colour temperature). The standard Android navigation buttons are below the screen and to our disappointment, they are not backlit. 

Lenovo has opted for the Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor on the Lenovo K6 Note which feels like a step down in power compared to the Mediatek Helio P10 on the Lenovo K5 Note. The advantage of the Snapdragon is less heating and that it offers better battery life. However, the Snapdragon 430 feels like the bottleneck when using Theatermax for VR with multiple apps running in the background. For most day to day uses, the phone works great. Battery backup is also excellent — the 4,000mAh battery regularly lasted us over a day, even with heavy usage. 

The primary camera has been upgraded to a 16MP sensor with phase detection autofocus. It can record full HD video. In our tests, we noticed that the 16MP camera is just an average performer — images suffer from visible noise indoors and excessive noise is visible in low light. Front 8MP camera manages to take above average selfies, but when viewed on a large display, you can see that edges are soft. 

Overall, we feel that the Lenovo K6 Note is priced a bit too steep for the hardware and performance it offers. You can get similar hardware on the Xiaomi Redmi 3s Prime for `8,999, though it has a smaller 5-inch display. If you are looking for a 5.5-inch devices in this price range, we recommend getting the Redmi Note 4 that offers 4GB RAM with 64GB storage, a Snapdragon 625 processor and superior camera performance for `12,999. If you need to buy something offline, consider Vivo V5, Oppo A57 or Gionee S6s.

Price is 15,999 but in amazon you can buy on 13,999 by using below link and also you will get exchange offer upto 622 RS
