The camera does good work when taking casual everyday shots. The 16MP sensor quickly locks focus and the smart composition tool helps you in different situations. But you can turn it off on camera settings. The apps offer different features like Nightscape, HDR, Fast Motion and Slow Motion. But if the app could support the Gifs that is provided by Gionee devices, then it would be great. The camera interface is good to use, and the low light shots are impressive. The selfies are average, not too impressive.

The Lenovo K6 Note comes with the TheaterMax technology and also the ANT VR headset. This headset allows users to experience an entirely different level of entertainment for movies, games and any other content with the 100-degree field of view. It is almost equal to the cinematic experience. But users need to buy the ANT VR headset separately from Amazon India. The team of TNI tested the ANT VR headset, and it will work as intended. When you long press the power button, you can enable the VR mode. The dual Dolby Atmos speakers make a significant enhancement to the specs, but the bundled headphones are below average.
