I recently moved from a S7 Edge and am very happy with the swap.
Having tried V20, I found the interface to he extremely slow and the build quality below par.

Interesting... I moved away from the S7 edge for these two reasons - too delicate for my liking, and I prefer LG's UI than the Samsung

Question Re: VOLTE on K6 Power?

Does Lenovo K6 Power support VOLTE?

The 'Reliance Digital' guys told me I can make calls only through Jio App installed on the phone as K6 Power does NOT have VOLTE.

Nope, I want the latest Android security patches immediately on my phone to access official emails. Also, I am allergic to very large phones. Will check offers in Croma and hopefully will buy one in a few days. Too scared to change from Android to IOS after so many years

You could get a Nexus 6P. It's still being updated with the latest patches and is better looking than the pixel in my opinion.

My sister's facebook account got disabled. She submitted an appeal and sent a scanned passport photo. It's been 11 days & they haven't sent any reply either way. Is there a chance that they will reply after so many days? Can anything be done?

The Nexus 6P get the security updates on time, but it is a pretty large phone.

It does support VOLTE and there is no need of Jio Voice. I am surprised it is available offline as I thought it was Flipkart exclusive.

Also, please be aware of the inherent microphone issue with this particular model. Google for "Lenovo k6 power mic issue" and you will get to know the details.

Wish they came out earlier with this. And yeah, no headphones for a 30k phone is slightly bewildering.

One suggestion - Do not remove the screen protector that was on phone - it is by far the best one I have used. Every tempered glass post it is useless.

Congrats, the black edition looks absolutely stunning. I have the original OP3 in silver/titanium finish, which itself is a looker, but the black left me drooling for sure! I am enjoying my OP3 for the past year or so, and have no complaints whatsoever. What amazed me was the speed and regularity with which OP pushes updates to OP3/3T. Frankly, I did not have high expectations on this front, but they even outdo most of the bigger players in the market in re updates.

The absence of headphones is a legacy of the low cost image that OP originally had. However, with the 128GB versions costing INR 35K, that excuse no longer holds good, and high time that they started equipping the retail boxes with a pair of good earphones!

I'm actually fine with no headphones with the phone. OP sells Bullet headphones for ~1200 in India through its own store. I'm happy that this cost is not included in the phone and I've the choice to buy any headphones that I prefer.

That being said, OP's accessories are really good. I bought the phone case worth 1200 and it is really good. Textured, grippy, covers the entire phone, looks premium.. Planning to order the curved tempered glass whenever its available again.

Now let us wait for the S8 tomorrow. From the noises I hear it should be a good deal. I need to replace my Motorola soon, as I am waiting for the news.

I'm not buying, but just wondered what if .

There's a problem, of the standards-standards-standards kind! I've invested a not-trivial amount of money in Quick Charge 2.0 chargers: two in the house and one in the car, and we even have a couple of Quick Charge 3.0 power banks now. Quick Charge 3.0 seems backwards compatible, but Oneplus have gone for.... something else entirely.

Whatever the display, whatever the camera, etc etc, that completely knocks on the head any don't-need-it-but temptation for me.

Yes it looks stunning and high-end in front of Iphone. I am happy that i didnt go for Iphone even though i would have saved 30K if i had bought Iphone(company provides 30K for Iphone or samsung). I wanted something new,fast,lot of space and sleek. 3T fits the bill perfectly.

I really dont need headphones as i have so many with me that i can even sell them to Oneplus if they want

Thing i dont like is the speaker and its placement. After using HTC these speakers sound crap. Also the placement is irritating specially if you are playing a game. Your right hand tends to cover that lone speaker everytime. So irritating.

Rest no complains so far. It came with a cover for back and also had screen protection. I have never used screen protection ever in my life so will not buy any new one. Will keep the present one till the time it sticks. As for the back, i dont want to spoil the sleek black looks of the phone (thats the reason i bought this one right) but i am little scared that this phone is little slippery and might fall. So as of now will use the transparent one, the one it came with.

Thanks all for recommending this phone to me.
