Lenovo K3  Note



In this option, you can configure the display. But when you enter in the display menu it will show you as option display color balance. When you enter in that option it will show you three modes to setup display option

1. Default mode:
This a factory default mode for optimal color it will show a minimum optimal color of brightness    even if you low the brightness.(not too low).

2. Comfort mode:
The name itself says that it is comfort. If you are using your phone over long periods this is what you  might be searching for. When you choose this option it will change the display into light yellow.  You need to take a look at display to find the difference.

3. Custom:
This mode is custom, You can customize on your own. When you enter, it shows up with two options

              a. Tone:
                  In this option you can combine the above two modes. I.e. default mode and comfort                              mode.
              b. Saturation:
                  According to the changes you have mode in tone, you can customize your brightness to                       low or high as pastel or bright.

Secure zone management:

Yeah! this is my favorite.

After visiting settings you can see secure zone management under the system label.

Just click on it and checkout start at boot and  the floating button options.

To use secure zone, swipe down the notification bar where you will see a menu as open zone I.e. current zone.

When you click on it will change to secure zone.

This menu helps you in the situation whenever your phone is asked by some strangers or the persons you are not willing to interact.

Okay! Let me explain behind the scenario.

First of all Secure zone doesn’t show the files what you kept in a open zone, nice isn’t it.

You can check it and even there will be no gallery option until we import that.

To import any icons from open zone to secure zone, you can do that on secure zone settings.

After visiting secure zone settings you will see a label called import applications from a open zone, just import and check it.

One more important thing, you can also secure your phone with the normal lock to unlock the device whenever you switch to secure zone.

But a hard thing is once you forgot the password of a secure zone and you are in there is no way out, You have to make a hard reset.

Before that, make sure you try for  clearing data and clearing the cache of the secure zone app in open zone under all apps settings. This might help sometimes.

Power manager shows its power:

This power manager shows its power.

Yes! It has some lot of options like battery saver, background app management, Screen and GPU power saver and most important ultimate power saver.

To use this option just click power manager under the system label in settings. Well, I will explain you those individually.

1. Battery saver:
Battery saver saves your battery by reducing your background data.

Although it reduces the devices performance and restrict all the apps which take syncing process in an internet.

It is very well to use whenever your phone running on low battery or your phone in idle.

2. Background app management:
In background app management you can close the app which is running in the background (even after you close the app).

If you click the option it will list you all apps which are installed on your device. you can choose all, if you do so it will not run if they are not active in the background and the screens off.

Pretty cool to save some RAM in your phone.

3. Screen and GPU power saver:
In this option there are two types of vision engine is used.

a. Power saving vision engine:
In this power saving vision, it reduces your screen power consumption 5-20% using                            some intelligent technology.

An Awesome feature in Lenovo k3 note, Just swipe down the notification bar and you will see a super power option.

To find this smart switch in your device go to settings and click power manager under system label.

After clicking power manager you will see the option as the smart switch under Ultimate power saver.

3. Smart answer:
This feature available on all lollipop based phones. But I am not sure about it.

Actually what it does is whenever your phone starts ringing It will automatically reduce the sound of your phone ringtone, the moment your palm start holding the phone.

Instead of the above feature, it has another feature as the smart switch (no, not the power one).

This one is for calling feature.

This smart feature helps you to automatically change to earpiece mode when your device is raised to your ear only if you are talking in speaker mode.

To find this, go to settings and click on display under the personal label.


The most important features are listed

1. Double tap to light:
Alright! your device is now locked, you have to press the unlock button to unlock the phone. Sorry! I don’t agree with it, We are Lenovo users.

Just double tap the screen your phone will light up.

To find this setting, go to settings and click on feature under the personal label. There you will this option.

2. Quick snap:
In this setting, you can snap a picture without unlocking your device. Yes! that’s what the feature is.

Just double click on volume button that’s if after the moment picture snapped it will show you whether it has made a perfect snap or not.

To find this setting, go to settings and click on feature under the personal label. There you will this option.

Wait, did you remember about radiation of phone?

Well As I said in beginning you can keep your radiation of your phone away from you (whenever you want) because this smartphone radiation limits are so close to SAR (Specific Absorption Rate) limits.

During night times while sleeping put your mobile to airplane mode this will cut the radiations received by your mobile.

Because your device might be near to your head. That is dangerous for your brain. If you are lazy to do so, use smart scene for it or else Schedule automatically power on and off.

To make a schedule for mobile power on and of, go to settings and click schedule power on and off under basic settings.

After clicking this option you will see an on and off time for power on and power off.
