Gionee M6 Specification, Review and all you need to know

The Gionee M6 smartphone of the marathon series was announced in July 2016 and released in September along with the 6″ Gionee M6 plus in the same year. With this power-packed phone, no doubt, the China-based communication enterprise targeted countries with erratic power. This product is provided with a huge battery of 5000mAh capable of serving you for 2 days without charging. It boasts a 5.5″ display and a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels higher than its predecessor -Gionee M5.

Indeed, the 4GB RAM with 1.8GHz octa-core (helio P10) processor paved the way to compete amongst its rivals.

The 13MP rear camera would make a nice shot and the 8MP front camera would add glamor to making a selfie with comfort.

The Gionee M6 succeeded the celebrated Marathon M5 released in 2015. Notable improvements include the increase in RAM and the fingerprint sensor.

The smartphone features a 4G LTE band that offers a speedy download of up to 300 Mbps. The following Communication network providers now support the trending 4G LTE (Low Technology Evolution) band in Nigeria:

  • MTN 4G LTE Band: supports band 7 (2600MHz) & 20 (800MHz)

  • Etisalat 4G LTE Band: supports band 3 (1800MHz) and

  • Glo 4G LTE Band: supports band 28 (700MHz)

  • NTel 4G LTE Band: supports band 3 (1800MHz) and 8 (900MHz)

The smartphone has a reverse charging feature which is capable of charging more than three phones at the same time via OTG.

The embedded security chip offers 10 layers of protection for content and data. And Communications are secured using an encryption mechanism.

Gionee M6 is a variant of Gionee M6 plus and Gionee M6 mini. The latter has the smallest screen size of 5.3” amongst the trio and is powered with 3GB RAM and 4000 mAh battery.
