Sharing is caring!

It can be a bit confusing to compare a couple of devices with the same manufacturer, particularly when they are released on the same year. However, this next comparison is not in any way related to each other. The only thing common for these devices is the year they were released. The Xiaomi Redmi 3S is put to the test against the Lenovo K6 this time. Here are some notable features of these two devices.

General Classifications and Display

The notable difference between the two is the battery capacity, which is 4100mAh for the Redmi 3S and 3000mAh for the Lenovo K6. The former was also released in June, while the latter was released in September of 2016.

The Lenovo K6 is more in size though in comparison to the Redmi 3S. Basically, the Lenovo K6 has a 5.2 inches of screen size with a resolution of 1080x1920p. In other words, this device simply overpowers the other. On the other hand, the Redmi 3S only has a 5-inch screen size with a resolution of 720x1280p.

Hardware & Camera Features



The processor in both devices are also slightly different. On first note, the Lenovo K6 has a 1.4GHz octa-core processor, against the 1.1GHz octa-core processor of the Redmi 3S. The make and model of both devices in terms of processor are the same, which is Qualcomm Snapdragon 430.

More similarities come to these devices in terms of RAM at 2GB, internal storage at 16GB, and expandable storage type of microSD up to 128GB. The camera, however, are different only in resolution for the front, which is at 8MP for the Lenovo K6 and 5MP for the Redmi 3S.

Software and Connectivity Features

The operating system of both devices are also the same, as they come with Android 6.0.1 out of the box. If you own one of these devices, you should be happy with this feature alone.

Both have Wi-Fi connectivity features, with the same Bluetooth and GPS functionality. They only lack the NFC support that is almost present in all high-end and mid-range devices. Good thing though for both is that they have headphone jack slots, as well as FM radio features. The Lenovo K6 has a couple of nano-SIM slots, while the Redmi 3S has 2 micro-SIM slots.

  • It is much better price range.

Advantages of the Lenovo K6 over the Redmi 3S

  • It has a screen with full HD display.

  • It has a reverse charging capability.

This comparison between the Xiaomi Redmi 3S and the Lenovo K6 is mainly based on the specification and initial impression on both devices. Perhaps it remains to be the preference of the buyer, on which one is more superior to the other. This is because some devices are much more appealing to others in terms of specifications rather than the physical aspects.
