Gionee S6: $300, 8-core, AMOLED, yet nothing special

Gionee’s made some purchase-worthy phones in the past, but unfortunately the new Gionee S6 doesn’t look like one of them.

At 19,999 INR or $295, the phone doesn’t really have anything compelling about it… besides the trust that the brand has managed to gather in the offline Indian market in a rather short span of time.

Gionee S6

If you’re still interested, let me take a recap through the spec sheet of the phone; the Gionee S6 has a 1280 x 720p AMOLED display, a MediaTek MT6753 octa-core processor, 3GB RAM, 32GB on-board expandable ROM, 13 mega-pixel rear camera and a 5 mega-pixel front-facing camera. Interestingly, the S6 has a USB Type-C port.

What does work in the phone’s favour is its thickness, which at 6.9mm is in line with other ‘slim’ phones in the market. At it’s thinnest, the S6 measures a mere 4mm.

Gold, Rose Gold and Silver colours are the ones in which you’ll be able to purchase the phone, with Flipkart and IndiaTimes offering the phone for the aforementioned price.
