Already a hit in the Chinese market, the newly launched Gionee S6 promises to be a hit in the Indian market too. Exclusively available on Flipkart, the ergonomically designed Gionee S6 can fit in your hands with ease for a price of Rs.19,999. Now that I have subtly hinted at how comfortable the phone rests in your hand, let’s discuss the specs of the Smartphone.
Taking “inspiration” from the Korean giant, Samsung, when it comes to naming its Smartphone series (read S6); it appears that the Gionee S6 wants to create the same waves as the Samsung Galaxy S6 with its specs.
The Gionee S6 is equipped with a powerful 64-bit MediaTek MT6753 processor with eight cores, which ensures that multitasking is never an issue. If that is not enough, maybe you will be impressed by the 3GB RAM that the phone boasts of! If playing games on the phone is what keeps you entertained while you wait your turn at the dentist’s, then the Mali-T720MP3 GPU will help you curse the long lines at the clinic a little less, thanks to its efficient graphics processing capabilities! All in all, the Gionee S6 sports some very good hardware.
Now, what’s a Smartphone if it doesn’t look good? Gionee has worked on the S6’s looks; keeping with the trend, the handset sports a full metal unibody look that gives it a premium look and feel. At 147g, the phone may feel decently light in your hand or pocket.
On the display front, the Gionee S6 has a stunning 73.6% screen-to-body ratio with the screen measuring a massive 5.5”. With a display resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels (~267 ppi pixel density), watching movies is a treat for the eyes.
Gionee S6 wants to enable you to keep your personal life separate from your professional one, and for that the phone supports dual SIM. With 32GB internal memory, you can store hundreds and thousands of pictures and files, and if you are feeling a little greedy, then you could simply make use of card slot for expandable memory of up to 128GB!
Next up in the spotlight is the camera on the Gionee S6. The 13MP primary camera has an aperture of f/2.0, comes with autofocus capabilities, and uses an LED flash for clearer pictures. You can take brilliant videos of 1080p@30fps. The secondary camera is a decent enough 5MP, so that your selfie taking sessions never disappoint!
Chinese companies love incorporating the West, but with a twist, and Gionee S6 is no exception. The Smartphone runs on the Amigo 3.1 OS which is based on Android Lollipop. The customized interface has some useful features like Amiclone which allows the user to transfer their contacts from their old phone to the new. It also has an easy to access System Manager which gives you access to features like App Manager, Power Manager, etc.
The 4G enabled phone gets its power from a 3150mAh battery to keep you company while you continuously browse away or stream videos online. With the specs that the Gionee S6 boasts of, this Smartphone may well be worth more than its price tag.
