Gone are those days when only a handful of big mobile giants ruled the mobile market. In today’s time there are so many companies giving tough competition to these giants. These small companies are gaining supporters, especially in the lower and mid-range devices. One of them is Gionee. Gionee has announced the Gionee S6 last year in November. The phone is finally listed in Flipkart. Gionee S6 comes is a romantic Rose Gold color and has been priced at Rs. 19,999 only.

Display & Design
The Rose Gold colored Gionee S6 comes with a 5.5 inch AMOLED display that has a screen resolution of 720 x 1280 pixel display. The screen has a Amigo OS version 3.1 interface.
Personally, I feel the front panel of the phone looks a lot like Coolpad Note 3. The full metal unibody design and shiny edges makes the gadget pretty compact looking and gives a superior feel with the device.
The rear camera is placed on the top left corner (just like in iPhone 6S). The Power and Volume Buttons are placed along the right edge of the device. The loudspeaker and USB port are placed on the lower edge and the 3.5 mm jack slot on the upper edge.
The dimensions of the device are 151.9 x 74.6 x 6.9 mm and weighs 147 grams(oh! pretty light!) .
The phone runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop out-of-the-box. However there is no news about the latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow update. It has a Mediatek chipset in the inside. It has 4 cores running at 1.3 GHz and Mali-T720Mp3. It has 3 GB RAM for multi-tasking.
Gionee S6 is armed with 13 MP rear camera and 5 MP front camera. The rear camera has an LED Flash. Other features of rear camera are geo tagging, panorama, HDR, magic focus, face beauty, pic note, ultra pixel, smart scene, GIF, eraser and video recording at 1080p.
The phone has 32 GB of internal storage (out of which 23 GB is user available only!). However, you can expand this with microSD card upto 128 GB via the SIM card Slot 2.
Gionee S6 is a dual SIM device where the SIM cards support GSM, HSPA and LTE technology. However, the second SIM slot is shared with microSD card. So it’s either a dual SIM phone or single SIM with memory card.
Other wireless connectivity features are Wi Fi 802.11 b/g/n, hotspot, Wi Fi Direct, bluetooth, A-GPS, FM Radio, microUSB Type C.
The Gionee S6 comes with a Li Polymer 3150 mAh capacity in the inside. The battery gives 18 hours talktime in 3G and 33 hours in 2G and 430 hours standby in 2G and 384 hours in 3G.
Gionee S6 Flipkart
Gionee S6 is Flipkart Exclusive in India. You can grab your Gionee S6 from Flipkart.
My take on Gionee S6 : Looking at the Rs. 19,999 price, the phone does not do much justice to the device. There are many short comings in the device. The Lenovo Vibe X3 is a #dope in the same price. However, if you are looking for a phone with 3GB RAM then you can check out the alternatives below.
