Lenovo K3 Note Gaming Review

Lenovo K3 Note comes with 1080P Display, Mediatek MT6762 with True Octacore 1.7 GHz processor, Mali T760MP2 Mali processor, 2 GB RAM and 16Gb internal storage.  This whole combination is a high end configuration making it attractive for gamers who expect phone to deliver an experience which no other phone can deliver at a price of Rs 9,999.

Keeping this mind, I decided to test it with three high-end games like Asphalt 8 : Airborne,  Marvel Champions and Godfire. All these three are graphics intensive games and all from different categories. Here are the results:

Apshalt 8  Airborne :

  • Load Time : This was decent.
  • Game Play on High Settings : Lot of blur even no nitro was used and it was really tough to handle the car as it was not responding that well.
  • Medium Settings : This turned out better, compared to high settings, but still not good.

What surprises me is that if you compare the specs of K3 Note with A7000, not much has changed except that the display is 1080P in Note. While A7000 was great for gaming, Note is not. Which lets me conclude that it’s probably the poor software optimisation that’s killing the performance.

Marvel Champions:

  • Load time : Great, but it slow down if you are on poor data connection.
  • Game Play :  The whole experience is totally awesome. No lags and frame drops.

GodFire: 

  • Load time : Very High.
  • Game Play : Lot of lags, crashes and frame skips.

Heating: This is probably the best part. None of the game play resulted in lot of heating.  Everything was in range.

That said, I will highly recommend you to stay off from the phone if you wanted to buy a phone which delivers great high end gaming experience.
