Lenovo k6 power Review: The Innovation and Technology are moving to next levels, and you can find fresh and latest model of mobile hovering around the market. So, let’s jump into the Lenovo k6 power Review.
Lenovo k6 power was the latest model launched by the Lenovo. I don’t have to say about the company because you might already know about the Lenovo because it is having a good reputation in both mobile market and laptop market as well.
According to the IDC, Lenovo holds the second place regarding the Smartphone market share in India, which is next to the Samsung. That survey proves that Lenovo holds 9% of total market share in India. This Chinese company has been one of the few smartphone companies that have been launching the 4G enable smartphones in India frequently and for a long time.
In 2015 itself this company has claimed that it has more than 30 percent share of the 4G Smartphone market in India. After that aspect, Lenovo has been challenged by its competitors in bringing 4G Smartphones. However, the mobile market went to peek when the Reliance Jio’s 4G network came to the market, and also the other telecom industries partners are making some big investments in 4G as well.
Lenovo K6 power
Lenovo has heavy competition from its own country brands, Especially, Xiaomi. Xiaomi is giving a lot of competition to the Lenovo. Xiaomi was the company which has made into the top five in India for the first time.
Lenovo was expecting more from the recent launch of the Lenovo K6 power as it was one of the 4G enable smartphone which is under average price range. This k6 power price was 9,999, and it has built this with the Lenovo Vibe User interface.
This company has already offered few models in this segment including the smartphone models like Lenovo Vibe K5; Lenovo Vibe K5 Plus and the Lenovo Vibe K4 note. This new K6 Lenovo model has some great features with the fingerprint scanner.
The best and outstanding feature of the Lenovo power k6 was its battery which is one of the highlights of the Lenovo k6 power, and its battery capacity is 4000mAh it also supports the reverse charging features which means you can charge other devices which are connected to it.
You might think about the other models in the same price of Lenovo K6 power. But, let’s see whether it gives tough competition to its competitors such as Asus ZenFone Max, Xiaomi Redmi 3S Prime, Cool pad Note 5, etc.
So, let’s find out the Lenovo K6 capability and judge the phone capacity.
Lenovo K6 Power design:
Lenovo K6 Power comes with the same user interface of the previous models of the Lenovo Vide. By having a glance at the new K6 power design, we can see the metal body Lenovo K6 power. It often looks similar to the Xiaomi Redmi 3S prime in looks, the front of the Lenovo k6 power and Xiaomi Redmi 3s prime has more similarities. But when it comes to the rear camera area it has some minor differences regarding the camera replacement and the antenna bands. Rest all are similar when we have a glance and fingerprint scanner and the LED flash.
Lenovo K6 Power Built:
Lenovo has brought the K6 power to compete with the other phones like Redmi, Cool pad and Asus. Although it has launched to compete with them, it is built as similar to the previous versions of Vide. The Front of the K6 power was coming with the dominated 5-inch screen with the navigation buttons below. You will find a hard time by using the navigation buttons in backlit.
This Model will come in three different colours one is available in Dark Grey, Gold and Silver. This device weight is 145 grams, and it is a bit thicker than the competitors. You can find power and volume buttons on the right same as the vibe, while the left has the SIM slot which isn’t available in Vibe K5.
It is having the 3.5mm headphones socket with the micro USB charging port these both will be found at the top of the phone which is similar to the Lenovo Vibe series. It is having the notification light similar to the previous model.
Lenovo fingerprint scanner is faster and sensitive, and it unlocks the phone faster, and it works pretty similar to the Vivo V5. The build in the look of the Lenovo makes you feel like the premium quality, but it is bit slippery.
However the Lenovo K6 has used the same the same user interface, but it has modified it slightly and added few shortcuts which are pretty useful. If you double tap on the volume button, then you can get the camera app running. The special thing is it even works when the phone is locked.
The 5 inches screen fits the hand perfectly and it easy to carry, it is having the full HD and its text are visible clearly, and the colour variant is decent. Main highlights of the K6 power is its display and battery.
Lenovo K6 Power Specifications in the description:
The Lenovo K6 Power and its competitor Xiaomi Redmi 3S Prime are fuelled by the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 Octa-core 1.4 GHz processor. It has 3GB RAM, and the phone model has 32GB of inbuilt storage, and you can expand it up to 128GB by using the MicroSD Card.
K6 Power is supporting the Dual Nano- SIMs, but the bad news about the K6 Power comes with the hybrid slot so that users can either use two sims or you can use Micro SD Card with one SIM. This was the disappointing factor for the people who strives to use dual SIM on their phones.
Coming to the Android Version, the Lenovo K6 Power runs on the Android 6.0 Marshmallow with the Lenovo vide User Interface on the top. But you can find K6 power is smoother than the Video. The connectivity of the Lenovo K6 comes with the 4G with VoLTE, Bluetooth v4.2, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, FM radio, Micro USB and GPS.
The other main drawback and confusion factor of the Lenovo K6 power is it doesn’t show gallery app. Instead of the gallery app, it will show the google photos which is preinstalled but this app isn’t set as the default photo viewer, so this makes hard for all those who don’t know about that.
It is others apps are working fine, and you can see the drop-down shade offers the quick settings features and along with the notification. It is having fast loading apps, themes and also several customization options for the icons, wallpapers, lock screen settings and more.
Best Features in K6 Power:
The Best features which we have seen in Lenovo K6 Power is the fingerprint sensor. It quickly allows users to lock any app with a fingerprint and along with that, it has the Dual app mode that lets you access the two different accounts on the same phone.
The K6 also has the unique features which can help you take quick snaps, here all you have to do is just double touch on the volume button to open the camera. The camera will launch even when the phone is locked. Fingerprints act as the door shutter to your phone.
It also has the incorporated VR mode, but to enable this, you have to go to the settings page. Along with these features, Lenovo gives you access to all kind of files through its file manager app.
The Lenovo Power has a 13-megapixel rear camera which is good to take images, and its camera comes with a Sony IMX 258 Sensor and the Phase Detection autofocus sensor (PDAF) along with the LED flash. This was the budget-friendly camera, and you can take some best shorts with its rear camera.
It also has an 8 Megapixel front camera with a Sony IMX 219 Sensor, and it also has the wide angle lens which helps to take a clear shot. This camera has the capability to take some good snaps. You can take some great close up shots, and it has the good colour accuracy as well.
The Daunting problem for the Lenovo K6 Power is it will work efficiently only in places which have enough light; its low light shots will have a lot of noise, and you will find it as a low-quality image, in this aspect the competitors has the upper hand.

The Lenovo K6 Power was the perfect smartphone if you are searching for the budget phones. It Price is 9,999, and it is affordable for all users, it has some promising features and so if you are searching for phones under Rs 10,000. The body feels like a premium design, and its fingerprint scanner is one the features which is best for this device.
But if you are Lenovo Vibe users, then you will get used to the user interface. It is easy carry and to use as well. The processor of the Lenovo K6 power is good enough, and its camera can capture some impressive images, but you can’t take great pictures when there is low light.
