Design and Display

Question: How is the Lenovo K6 Power design and build quality?

Answer: On a casual glance, you can easily confuse Lenovo K6 Power with its elder brother K5 Note or with the budget driver, Redmi 3s Prime, from Xiaomi. This isn’t a bold new design approach, and Lenovo rather banks upon what’s tried and tested, though, we are not complaining as it doesn’t look boring. Yet.

The phone is compact so people with small palms should be very happy. The phone feel sturdy as it has a metal back with two antenna bands and plastic strips at the top and bottom. On the rear side, all elements are symmetrically aligned, which is again not exactly novel, but kind of works. On top, there is a 3.5mm audio jack and USB 2.0 which makes it convenient to use the handset while charging. Lenovo has placed buttons on right edge which don’t wobble and offer good tactical feedback.

Cameralenovo-k6-power-review-1

Question: How is the K6 Power camera quality?

Answer: The K6 Power Camera performance is better than the Redmi 3S Prime but relies too much on the lighting conditions. Having said that, I find the performance of the K6 Power camera a tad inconsistent. Details and colors are more prominent in the portrait shots as compared to landscape images. In low-light, the details tanked down further. On the other hand, the front camera manages to take good selfies with adequate details and colors.

  1. Two more queries
    1.The front camera selfies seems zoomed one. Incase of wide angle selifes any option for that except the selfie stick.

    2.Also as it doesnt support the OIS, EIS does it ruin the instant Wow selfies.

    • That might not be a serious issue. All phones heat up with gaming, and if you can please check the temperature. Anything around 40 to 43 is normal. If it’s within replacement window, you can get it replaced too.

    • You don’t have to activate VoLTE, what you need is a 4G VoLTE SIM card. As far as Video calls are concerned, Video call option is not available on K6 Power as of now. However, we expect Lenovo to offer it with a OTA update in the near future. Though you can still make video calls using applications like Whatsapp, Facebook Messenger, Google Duo and others.
