Lenovo has been working overtime at releasing smartphones with new models from multiple series being launched in a mere gap of months. The company had previously launched the Lenovo K6 Power in the last week of November, before launching K6 Note. Lenovo Vibe K5 was launched back in August after the company launched Lenovo Zuk Z2 Plus.
The company wants to flood the Indian market with budget smartphones so that people buy smartphones made by Lenovo. K6 Note is another attempt by the Chinese company to break through in the budget segment in the Indian smartphone market. So without further delay, lets see how the Lenovo K6 Note fares.
Build and Design: 7/10
Lenovo K6 Note is a good looking device with a metal back and glass front along with plastic top and bottom on the back. The smartphone is well-built and sturdy without any squeaking parts. It feels good to hold in hand even though it does tend to be a bit slippery.
The screen size may make it difficult for one hand usage, but that is the case only when you are trying to reach something on the diagonally extreme corners with your thumb.
Lenovo K6 Note comes with the volume rocker on the top right side corner of the smartphone and the power button a little below volume rocker, towards the middle. You will find the speaker grill and the microUSB v2.0 port on the bottom and the 3.5mm headphone jack on the top side of the smartphone towards the right.
The left size towards the top of the smartphone houses the Dual Nano SIM slot where the second slot can be used as an expandable microSD card slot.
The design for K6 Note is nothing out of the ordinary. The imprinted icons of buttons towards the bottom of the screen are ugly in my opinion and kill the chance for the company to add a layer of customisability where consumers can alter the buttons according to their preference.
Lenovo K6 Note features a 5.5-inch Full HD display and is powered by an Octa-Core Snapdragon 430 processor clocked at 1.4GHz. There are memory options available on the smartphone: 3GB and 4GB RAM with an internal storage of 32GB. The device we tested had 3GB RAM and 32GB internal storage. Both the versions offer the ability to expand the storage using a microSD card of up to 128GB. The device is about 169 gm in weight with 151 x 76 x 8.4 mm dimensions.
The smartphone sports a 16MP camera sensor at the back with PDAF and a dual tone LED flash along with an 8MP shooter on the front. Connectivity options include dual-SIM support, 4G LTE, Bluetooth 4.1, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, GPS/A-GPS and a microUSB v2.0 port. Other notable features include Dolby Atmos audio technology, accelerometer, gyroscope, proximity, compass and a fingerprint scanner. The phone is expected to ship with Android 6.0 Marshmallow (with a custom skin) and a 4,000 mAh battery.
