2-minute Review [Positives]
  • All-metal body, with a solid, premium feel
  • Nice, vibrant, large display
  • Fast fingerprint sensor at the back
  • Lenovo's UI over Android is pretty decent and comes with 'Secure Zone' that enables the user to keep some content and apps away from prying eyes
  • Decent performance - handles multi-tasking, gaming and switching between apps fairly smoothly sans any heating issue
  • Decent cameras - stills quality is acceptable although it could have been better
  • Video recording too is with an acceptable level of detail and clarity, though nothing great
  • The dual speakers, equipped with Dolby Atmos, are pretty decent, and do well in daily tasks
  • Audio output is clean
  • Boasts of a huge 4, 000 mAh battery that actually delivers - comfortably lasts a day, and can generally last 2 days too with moderate use
  • You can also get an Ant-VR headset bundle with the phone at an additional cost of Rs 1, 299 for enjoying TheatreMax
  • Good build quality
  • Solid metal unibody design and brushed metal finish - feels good to hold
  • Smaller and slimmer than the K4 Note
  • Bundled clear cover for protecting the phone
  • Good display - solid brightness levels, contrast ratio, sunlight legibility and viewing angles
  • Display has Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection unlike the K4 Note
  • Lenovo‚Äôs Vibe UI is clean, and at the same time adds some useful features on top of Android
  • Good speed/performance, including with games
  • Multitasking is smooth too, thanks to the ample RAM
  • Built-in support for VR glasses, similar to the K4 Note (ANT VR headset has to be purchased separately)
  • Decent, fast rear camera, for daylight shots - macro shots are good too and HDR shots came out well
  • The 8MP front-facing camera is good for selfies and video chats - colors are vibrant and the images are sharp as well
  • Fast fingerprint sensor
  • Thanks to Dolby Atmos, Wolfson WM8281 audio codec and 1.5W speaker, loudspeaker output is good and clear even in full volume
  • Audio output through headphones is decent as well
  • Good call quality
  • Very good battery life - a definite improvement over the K4 Note - easily lasts a full day
  • Useful power saving modes to further reduce battery consumption
2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • At 169 grams, the K6 Note is a bit on the heavy side
  • The performance is decent, but falls behind the competition from the likes of Xiaomi
  • Mediocre bundled earphones
  • No fast-charging support - so the phone takes quite some time to charge the big 4, 000 mAh battery
  • Hybrid dual SIM slot lets you either use dual SIMS or a memory card, but not both together
  • No special support for quick charging unlike some of its competitors
  • Low-light camera performance of the phone is strictly average - with plenty of noise in the shots
