Lenovo, one of the popular smartphone vendors in the budget segment, especially under the Rs. 10,000 price bracket had recently added yet another smartphone to its lineup called the Lenovo K6 Power. The smartphone sports a 5-inch Full HD display, an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 chipset clocked at 1.4GHz, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage space, 13MP rear camera, 8MP front-facing camera, Android 6.0 Marshmallow with the company’s Pure UI atop.
However, the smartphone’s highlight remains to be its 4,000mAh battery which puts it in the same league as the Xiaomi Redmi 3s Prime. We’ve had an opportunity to use the Lenovo K6 Power for a week and here's our battery shootout.
Note: In this article, we will mostly stick to the USP of the device — its beefy battery. In case, you want to know more about the device, let us know through the comments section below and will plan something accordingly.
So, now that we have a fair idea about the specifications of the device, let’s talk about how it fares in the real world usage.
To begin with, the smartphone managed to eek out 6 hours of screen-on time which is pretty impressive considering the fact we’ve stressed the device to a good extent.
To give you a fair idea, our usage involved streaming videos on YouTube for a couple of hours, checking WhatsApp messages intermittently, scrolling through Facebook news feed, posting photos on Instagram, checking Snap stories at regular intervals of time, reading news, playing games and all of this while streaming music via Saavn (of course not when watching videos or playing games).
Speaking of games, the smartphone did struggle to handle graphic-intensive games like the Asphalt 8: Airborne. That said, the K6 power managed to handle day-to-day tasks pretty smoothly with no signs of lag, but again on heavy usage, it did lag to an extent.
