Despite acquiring Motorola back in 2014, Lenovo didn't even slow down in churning new Android smartphones under its own brand name. One of the most recent phones in its arsenal is the budget friendly K-series, the Lenovo K6 Power.
The K6 Power is the smaller of the two new K-series devices, the other one being the K6 Note, which we recently reviewed. The two are much the same, except the K6 Power has a smaller 5-inch display that should appeal to those who want something more compact.
Previously, though, going for a smaller phone also meant getting a smaller battery, but that's not the case with the K6 Power, which has the same 4000mAh battery as the larger K6 Note. And that's really the main feature of the phone (hence the name), with Lenovo claiming two days of battery life.
In markets like India, the K6 Power will primarily be facing against the Xiaomi Redmi 3S Prime. Although a bit cheaper, the Redmi 3S Prime has a lower resolution display, less RAM, less storage, and no stereo speakers. It might seem, then, the Lenovo may have just beaten Xiaomi at its own game. But that's just on paper. Let's see what's it like in the real world.
You will notice that this review format is shorter than usual. That's because this review unit wasn't available at our HQ so we couldn't subject it to our usual standardized tests. Nevertheless, we've worked hard to present our opinion about the most important aspect of using this phone based on our rich experience and we hope you would enjoy the good read.
