Gionee M6 Summary and Introduction
When Gionee began its Marathon line of phones, the obvious thing was that there was a breath of fresh air in the phone market. By 2016, the fresh air only got better with the release of the Gionee M6 which came in many ways as the game changer.
Coming at the high range of things, the phone is one that has beastly features and performance as its middle name. It is designed for people who have need of a phone that gives more than a regular phone could ever give.
Gionee is one of the hard to ignore Chinese smartphone manufacturers, they just came with a premium smartphone in the name of Gionee M6 and more premium version in the name of Gionee M6 Plus.
The phone is a closed back piece, hence you may not be able to have the battery removed.
Having simple remote control on phones is something that is not very popular, but it is featured on this phone. Using the control, you will be able to turn on your TV, change channels, and increase or decrease the volume.
Split screen is another feature that the phone has. The feature allows you to do two things at the same time. For example, you can have your movie playing while you chat on Facebook, Skype, WhatsApp, Wechat, or Messenger.

The Gionee M6 comes with a 5.5-inch FHD screen which doesn’t only give you the best of display, but also a very generous and wide viewing angle which means that all details are clear and complete. In addition to coming with AMOLED display, the M6 Plus, on the other hand, comes with a massive 6 Inch screen.
Like the Techno Phantom 5, the phone has a metal cover which means that it will be very strong and durable. Better than everything else, this phone is all about security and convenience. To this end, it is designed with a fingerprint sensor that is placed in front of the phone for ease of use and fast accessibility.
The Gionee M6 AMOLED capacitive touchscreen display occupies approximately 72.7% of the smartphone body, setting the screen display size at 5.5 inches with screen resolution at 1080 by 1920 pixels and screen density, PPI at 401 pixels per inch.
Gionee M6 is loaded with Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) with Gionee’s Amigo 3.5 skin. The phone offers 64GB or 128GB storage with a microSD slot that supports up to 256GB additional storage.
The Android smartphone offers super fast download speed of up to 300 Mbps via 4G LTE. It also comes with Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi, Fingerprint Sensor, and Infra-Red port. Gionee M6 lacks a 3.5mm audio jack.
Just as most things are top notch with the phone, so also is the Camera. The rear camera of the Gionee M6 is 13MP while the frontal camera is 8MP.
Although in comparison to others it is great, in its class, it could have been better. This is because its front camera is only 8MP.
On the other hand, the M6 Plus which is the better of the two has a back camera of 16 MP and a front camera of 8MP. The back camera also has the face detection autofocus and dual-LED flash
Battery and Sensors
The doom for many great phones is that they come with massive capabilities and yet batteries that run out as fast as they can. With the M6 featuring a 5000mAh battery and the M6 Plus 6020mAh, that problem is evidently more than halfway solved with this.
In fact, one of the things that come as the selling point of the M6 is the battery life which is longer than what others, even those with less feature give. Even though it cannot be removed, there is hardly any reason to worry because the battery life is good.
