Lenovo K6 Note design

If you’re familiar with K6 Power, Lenovo K6 Note looks similar to the gadget. Although there’s a big difference when it comes to screen size.

You can fit either two SIMs or one SIM and one MicroSD card. You can find a Micro-USB port at the bottom while the 3.5 mm audio jack is located on the top portion of the phone.

Lenovo K6 Note Performance

The 5.5-inch full-HD (1080×1920-pixel) IPS display produces vibrant colors and sharp text. The brightness is okay for outdoor use. A bigger screen makes watching videos and playing games a more engaging experience.

During the review, we didn’t experience lag while the phone performs multiple tasks. We downloaded a game app “Scream Go” to test its processor. And as expected, the Lenovo K6 Note ran smoothly. To test its connectivity, we played several videos on YouTube and played the Everwing Challenge game. The phone remained on top-notch performance despite the online game.

The fingerprint scanner at the back is aslo fast-responding. It becomes a convenience when taking photos as the hand can simply switch from an index finger to the thumb to take photos.

Sound is also much clearer and dimensional thanks to the Dolby Atmos speakers which creates more of a surround-sound experience.

The camera does a pretty good job too. The 16MP rear camera captures sharp images. The PDAF is also helps to auto-lock the image. Other camera features include Pro, Panorama, HDR, Fast-motion, Slow- motion and Nightscape.

We tried how powerful selfies can be produced with Lenovo K6 Note through a selfie challenge. The crisp take of the 6MP front camera makes picture look more defined compared to other selfie phones.

Lenovo K6 Note 4000mAh battery also means less charging and more usage. Unlike other smartphones, this one serves more usage time because of the bigger battery size.

Over-All Verdict

Lenovo K6 Note is a reliable phone that offers a larger screen and smoother performance. It’s a handy phone for the average joe, but if you’re looking for more techie updates, it’s best to shift to a higher-end phone.
