The Lenovo K6 Power aims to bring a balanced software and hardware experience in an affordable package of Rs 9,999. While the market is already crowded with budget smartphones under Rs 10,000 boasting attractive specs, the Lenovo K6 Power is trying to differ by providing better battery life, software features like Dolby Atmos, TheatreMax along with a clean user interface.
So, should you consider the Lenovo K6 Power for a price of Rs 9,999? Here is our review.
While the Lenovo K6 Power comes in a familiar design and form factor, the smartphone is pretty compact and easy to grip despite housing a massive 4,000 mAh battery. Lenovo is offering three colour options-- Dark Grey, Gold and Silver—for the K6 Power smartphone. We reviewed the Dark Grey version which offers a different appeal and the all-metal unibody design adds to the premium feel.
The device is powered by a 1.4Ghz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor with Adreno 505 GPU, 3GB RAM and 32GB internal memory which can be expanded to up to 128GB via microSD card. The Lenovo K6 Power offers a 5-inch Full HD IPS display.(Image: Debashis Sarkar/ News18.com)
It can easily take care of the daily workload and performance shouldn’t be an issue for heavy gamers as well. The 13MP rear camera can click decent images but low-light pictures will be a problem. The front 8MP camera is capable of clicking some good selfies.
The Lenovo K6 Power lives up to its promise of better battery life. It lasted easily over a day of regular mixed usage including Wi-Fi and VoLTE connection.
If you already have a VR headset then you will love TheatreMax. With this, the Lenovo K6 Power makes any content VR-ready for an immersive experience. On the other hand, the Dolby Atmos support will be a delight for music lovers and movie buffs. Just get good earphones first to experience the difference.

What’s not so cool?
There is really nothing much to complain in this smartphone. However, the display quality could have been a bit better. While it is bright, it is not the best under direct sunlight. If you are using software customizations to click better selfies, then note that you need steady hands as the process is not the fastest.
It is dual SIM phone only if you do not use a microSD card. It would have been great if Lenovo had ditched the hybrid SIM card slot for separate ones.
The Lenovo K6 Power has several worthy competitors like the Xiaomi Redmi 3S Prime, Meizu M3, Coolpad Note 3 Plus, Moto G Turbo and Honor 5C among others.
For a price of Rs 9,999, the Lenovo K6 Power offers everything to delight users. The key differentiator for the K6 Power has to be better battery life and software features including Dolby Atmos and TheatreMax.
