Lenovo K6 note unbiased review and specifications
A very warm welcome to all of my readers, wishing all of a Merry Christmas. In this blog post, I would be doing a completely unbiased and no-nonsense review of the newly launched Lenovo K6 Note. So let us get started with Lenovo K6 note review, specifications and unbiased no-nonsense analysis.
Lenovo has been continuously expanding itsNote series. Its earlier phones Lenovo K5 note was released in January 2016. It was priced at starting at Rs. 14,000 in the offline market. Let us see, some of the specifications and the features of this newly launched Lenovo phone.
Let us start with the design and display feature of K6 note.Design-wise, the phone has an all-metal design and reminds somewhat of Xiaomi Redmi Note 3. There is nothing new in the design and there is nothing innovative or magnetic about it. K6 note comes with a 5.5 inches full HD IPS display with a pixel density of 401 ppi. The screen has 1080 x 1920 pixels resolution and a 16M color display. So there is not much of a difference between this Lenovo release and its predecessor K5 Note.
Let us now talk about the platform, on which this phone runs. K6 Note runs on Android v6.0.1 marshmallow OS. The processor that powers the phone is 1.4 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 chipset which is an octa-core CPU having 1.5 GHz and 1.2 GHz, clocked, Quad-core Cortex A53 chipset. The choice of chipset by the company is somewhat discouraging especially if you consider other phones like Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 launched a year back boasting of Snapdragon 650 processor. Opening a few web pages and light internet surfing will not be problematic but more memory intensive apps like gaming etc will surely be demanding on this processor. If you are a heavy gamer, then you can opt for 4GB + 64 GB variant as opposed to the lower 3GB + 32GB internal memory variant.
Also, it would not be possible to run 4K videos with this phone considering that Snapdragon 430 supports only 1080 pixels. The GPU is Adreno 505 and the RAM is 4 GB. Memory for this phone is expandable through a hybrid micro SD card.
When it comes to battery, K6 note has an impressive 4000 mAH capacity Li-Po non-removable battery. This is something which looks quite impressive and will help in attracting the buyers. The company claims to provide 600 hr standby time and 46 hrs of talk time on 2G networks, But it would not be unfair to say that the competitors like Redmi Note 3 have better capacity batteries in this price range. Lack of fast-charging feature is also a disadvantage here.
Lenovo has upgraded its rear camera from 13MP in K5 Note to 16MP in the K6 Note. The camera comes with PDAF (Phase detection autofocus), smile detection, geo-tagging, Panorama, and touch to focus feature. The camera has a dual LED flash front selfie camera comes with 8MP. Video recording can be done at 30fps with 1080 pixel resolution.
The phone comes with Dolby ATMOS audio technology which would be an advantage for music lovers. Connectivity options available are dual SIM nono card slots, 4G with VOLTe support, WiFi, Bluetooth, FM radio, GPS and micro USB 2.0. There is a circular fingerprint sensor at the back just below the rear camera. The phone comes with an accelerometer, compass, and 3.5 mm headphone jack. The K6 note supports Reliance Jio sim. It also supports VR or Virtual Reality. You can buy any external VR headset like that from ANT and play VRon this phone.
So, in my opinion, this smartphone looks good in terms of battery capacity and camera resolution. It is a good strategy of the company to launch two variants of this phone: One 3GB RAM and 32 GB internal memory variant and the other with 4 GB and 64 GB internal memory. The pricing of Lenovo K6 Note, however, is not so important and unattractive considering similar kind of features present in Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 and LeEco Le 2 at a comparatively lesser price.
