Gaming Performance

Lenovo K6 Power has a decent 1.4 GHz Octa Core processor with Qualcomm MSM8937 Snapdragon 430 chipset and Adreno 505 GPU. It has 3 GB RAM and 32 GB internal storage. The gaming performance was good but it is not very suitable for heavy gamers. We played Asphalt 8 on this phone, overall the performance was decent with minimal heating. Battery drop was only 6% in 20 minutes.

Talking about its comparison with Xiaomi Redmi 3s, the latter is also equipped with the same hardware but Lenovo K6 Power has a FHD display which is better, but you will experience some frame drops when you play for a longer period. The sound quality (because of dolby atmos) is better than any other phone in this price range.
