Gionee, a Chinese smartphone makers company, has come up with two models in its smartphone series Rs Marathon series, which is known for long battery backup, and S6 series, which is more into designing and performances. This year the company launched the S6, which is known for its selfie, having a flash in front of the camera. It then launched S6 Pro. The second phone was already in China in June and was launched in India later with a price tag of Rs.23,999. Being the flagship model, the company tried to give their best shot by equipping the phone with powerful specifications, camera and elegant looks. The Gionee S6 has responsive fingerprint sensor, cameras and battery. The only problem with it is its price Rs one can buy better phones for less.
Gionee has equipped the S6 Pro with a 5.5-inch full HD (1920×1080 pixels) display with a 2.5D glass. It has a MediaTek Helio P10 octa-core processor at 1.8GHz with 4GB of RAM, 64GB of its internal storage and memory can be expanded to 128 GB with microSD. The processor is really fast and smooth Rs one can work well with multiple applications open simultaneously. The phone has a 13MP rear camera, which impresses with fast auto focus and shutter speed. The images have sharp details, rich colour and minimal noise, at par with any other camera.
The front 8MP wide angle camera also takes good selfies but they are not as good as the selfie-focussed Gionee S6s. It has a 3,130mAh battery, 4G LTE, VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and USB Type-C port. The battery of Gionee S6 Pro is Li-Po type and can support up to 38.6 hours (3G) of talk time and up to 558 hours (3G) of standby time. It works well, if you charge it once, it can work for a day and it can last well over two days on moderate use. It has a dual SIM set-up that accepts two nano-SIMs. Gionee is also offering a VR headset worth Rs 2,499. The VR comes with a split screen feature that allows the user to watch videos while they receive notifications from apps.
