These are the Gionee M6 and M6 Plus smartphones, both of which have successfully passed the TENAA in China. The Marathon series which focuses on smartphones with humongous battery life and upgrades in their hardware as one moves higher the series, has captured the interest of lovers of smartphones with sturdy build and a long lasting battery.

The Gionee M6 Plus like the M6, features a mobile security that secures data stored on the smartphone and protects the device from malware by making use of an inbuilt device data encryption chip. On comparison with phones higher in its range, this midrange device, the M6 plus, is a competitor. The Gionee M6 Plus specifications are bettter when compared to Huawei Mate 7 and are similar to the specifications of Huawei Mate 8 but about 50% cheaper in price to the former and later. Also, the M6 Plus is just as good as the Samsung S7 and goes for a cheaper price. Other than its larger display, more processing speed, bigger battery capacity, higher rear camera resolution and absence of the 3.5mm audio jack, the Gionee M6 Plus is more or less like the Gionee M6.  


Overview Features

Display and Build

Gionee M6 Plus features a 6 Inch full HD AMOLED display with a resolution of 1920x1080 pixels and pixel density of 367PPI. Judging from its specs, this display is bright enough and offers good color reproduction. The size of its display screen is one of the features that distinguishes it from the regular Gionee M6.

It has a dimension of 160.50 x 80.60 x 8.20mm (height x width x thickness) and weight of 215g. Even though it has a huge battery, the weight of this smartphone has not been affected much as at 8.2mm thin and 215g heavy, it still maintains a sleek and slim design making it well built, solid and sturdy.

A fingerprint scanner for biometric authentication will be on the global variant of the M6 Plus. The china variant of the M6 Plus comes with an inbuilt data encryption chip to protect users from malware and secure IM communication and its content from being decrypted easily.  According to Gionee, this chip offers 10 layers of protection for the user’s personal data such as images, call records, and other sensitive information.

Processor and OS

The Gionee M6 Plus is powered by a 64-bit MediaTek’s MT6755m dual quad-core processor (octa-core processor) with four cores clocked at 2.0GHz and the other four at 1.0Ghz. It has Mali-T860MP2 GPU for rendering graphics and 4GB of RAM which will ensure the phone runs smoothly without difficulty even while multitasking. At a RAM of that size, users can expect multitasking with more web browsers, document editors, and weighty applications, and switch between fast.

Like the M6, the M6 Plus has 64GB and 128GB variants based on storage options, both of which are expandable up to 256 GB via a microSD card. Even without a microSD card, the capacity of this inbuilt memory is large enough to contain the user's files and store more apps and games. The M6 Plus runs on Amigo 3.2 User Interface on top Android 6.0 Marshmallow. This UI is pretty smooth with little or no lags and is simple with all installed apps appearing on different home screens.

Camera

Gionee M6 Plus features a 16MP rear camera with dual LED flash and an 8MP front camera for selfies. Features of this camera include: Phase dection auto focus (PDAF), face/smile detection, HDR, touch focus, digital zoom, video recording. The stepped up resolution of the M6's rear camera from the M6's 13MP rear camera would be another distinguishing feature of the duo.

Battery and Connectivity

The biggest selling point of the Gionee M6 Plus is its battery whose capacity is 6020mAh. Within the Marathon series, this would be the second device with a 6000+mAh battery, the other being the battery capacity of the Marathon M5. This battery is non removable, is based of Li-Polymer technology, and has a 9V/2A dual charging chips for fast charging and reverse charging other devices. These chips can adjust the charging current thereby preventing overheating if the phone is on fast charging mode.

Connectivity options on this device include dual SIM slots, Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, 4G LTE, 3G, 4G. Its sensors include fingerprint sensor, proximity sensor, ambient light sensor and accelerometer sensor. Like the M6, the M6 Plus also comes with an Infra-Red port blaster that allows users to control their audio and video devices. It  lacks a 3.5mm audio jack where the audio is now routed via bluetooth or micro-USB port instead of a USB Type-C port as would've been expected.
