Other Possible Causes and their solutions:

Calibrate Lenovo K3 Note battery without root access:

1. Discharge your Lenovo K3 Note fully until it turns itself off.
2. Turn it on again and let it turn off.
3. Plug your phone into a charger and, without turning it on, let it charge until the on-screen or LED indicator says 100 percent.
4. Unplug your charger.
5. Turn your phone on. The battery indicator will likely not say 100 percent, so plug it in (leave your phone on for this) and continue charging until it says 100 percent on-screen as well.
6. Unplug your phone and restart it. If it doesn’t say 100 percent plug the charger back in until it says 100 percent on screen.
7. Repeat this cycle until it says 100 percent (or as close as you think it’s going to get) when you start it up without being plugged in.
8. Now, let your battery discharge all the way down to 0 percent and let your phone turn off again.
9. Fully charge the battery one more time without interruption and you should have reset the Android system’s battery percentage.

Please remember that it is not recommended to perform this process all the time. Even when your battery is so dead your phone won’t even turn on, your battery still has enough reserve charge to avoid system damage. Perform this process once every three months at the most. If it is required more often than that you have bigger problems at hand.
Put plainly: fully discharging a battery is bad for it. Trying to overload a battery is also bad for it. The good news is that charging batteries automatically shut off when their safe limit is reached and there’s always a little in reserve even if your Lenovo K3 Note won’t start. But again: do this only when really necessary, because it does have a negative impact on battery life.

Calibrate Lenovo K3 Note battery with root access:

Even though it is not clear if clearing the batterystats.bin file has any meaningful effect on how the Android system reports remaining battery charge, there are those who swear by this method. So in the interests of fairness the process is included for you here (it is true that different manufacturers use the batterystats.bin file for different things). It’s basically the same process as above but with the added step of a root-enabled app.
1. Discharge your Lenovo K3 Note fully until it turns itself off.
2. Turn it on and let it discharge and turn off again.
3. Plug your phone into a charger and, without turning it on, let it charge until the on-screen or LED indicator says 100 percent.
4. Unplug your charger.
5. Turn your phone on. The battery indicator will likely not say 100 percent, so plug it in (leave your phone on) and continue charging until it says 100 percent on the screen as well.
6. Unplug your phone and restart it. If it doesn’t say 100 percent, plug the charger back in until it says 100 percent on screen.
7. You want to repeat this cycle until it says 100 percent (or as close as you think it’s going to get) when you start it up without being plugged in.
8. Now, install the Battery Calibration app and, before launching it, make sure your battery is at 100 percent again, then restart.
9. Immediately launch the app and recalibrate your battery.
10. Once you’ve calibrated your battery, discharge it all the way down to 0 percent and let your phone turn off again.
11. Fully charge the battery one more time without interruption and you should have reset the Android system’s battery percentage.
