Lenovo K6 Power Review

Introduction

Lenovo K6 Power is the smallest member of the two new K-series devices. The new model comes with a smaller 5 inch display and a 4000 mAh battery, same as the one used on K6 Note. Seems that the company managed to use the same battery on a much more compact smartphone.

Seems that K6 Power is facing against the Xiaomi Redmi 3S Prime on the market, a cheaper smartphone with less RAM, lower resolution display and less storage.

Display

Lenovo K6 Power looks quite similar like Redmi Note 3 in terms of design. The phone comes with a 5 inch IPS display at the resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels. This display has quite saturated colors, but the phone provides us with an option to change the display saturation levels.

After we changed the saturation level, the color accuracy was much more better. The brightness and viewing angles are quite good as well.

Software

Lenovo K6 Power with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow out of the box. The UI seems to be the standard version of Android. There are some theme ant customization options to choose from. Seems that Lenovo chosed  to use the standard Android icons for default apps.

The software is pretty the same as the one used on Lenovo K6 Note, more information about it can be found here.

Performance

We can’t expect too much performance from a Snapdragon 430 and 2 / 3 GB RAM. The apps are closed and opend quite quickly. The only bad thing noticed was the slow scrolling.

For selfies, there is a 8 Megapixels front-facing camera. This camera makes good photos with good detail level and nice colors.

Battery

Lenovo K6 Power packs a massive 4000 mAh battery. The company says that the phone will manage up to 2 days of battery life.The battery will resist up to 6 h screen-on time and up to 2 days in standby mode.

The phone scored 91 h on endurance rating, that means a quite good rating even though it uses the same hardware as Lenovo K6 Note, but with a smaller screen.

Conclusion

Lenovo K6 Power seems to be a much compact version of K6 Note with the same performance and specifications. If you like bigger screens, K6 Note might be the right choise, if you like compact smartphones with good performance, this is the best one for you.
