The Chinese handset maker, Lenovo is quietly building up a reputation as one of the brand that can be relied on in budget segment. Its Vibe and K series handsets are one of the most value for money handsets that anyone can buy at the moment. Lenovo Vibe K5 Note has been a good device that impressed many. Now the brand is all set to launch the next generation in this lineup and one of the first handset to arrive would be the Lenovo K6 Power. Here is a brief overview of the device for those who are looking for a good budget segment handset.
Good Display with Theatermax technology: Lenovo has equipped this handset with a 5-inch display that comes with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. This means the resultant pixel density of 441 ppi makes for a pretty sharp viewing experience. Also, it comes with the Theatermax technology from Lenovo, which makes it VR ready.
Close to stock UI: Earlier, Lenovo used to skin Android on its handsets with Vibe UI, which was heavily skinned and bloated, which dampened the user experience a bit. However, starting now, Lenovo has switched to Pure UI, which as the name indicates is close to the stock Android user interface. This makes for a familiar and convenient experience for many smartphone users.
Big battery: One of the biggest requirements by any smartphone buyer is to have a device that can see them through a day's worth of usage. Lenovo K6 Power, as the name suggests, is a battery oriented handset. Lenovo has equipped the device with a massive 4000 mAh battery, which also comes with quick charging.
PDAF: Most budget smartphones are not well equipped when it comes to camera, as a result many images turn out to be blurry as the subject moved just as you clicked. Lenovo has taken care of this issue in the K6 Power as the handset comes equipped with Phase Detection Auto Focus. This allows the 13 Megapixels camera on the rear panel to lock focus and capture even the moving objects clearly.
Hybrid SIM card slot: This is probably the only and universal con with most budget smartphones coming out in the market these days. Owing to this, you can either use single SIM card and expand your storage or use dual SIM in the handset.
