DESIGN
Although there is no major different from the orthodox design we are used to be seeing on previous marathon series especially the M5 but yet, this M6 has few premium designs around it. The device is available in two colors- gold and champagne. Meaning there is no black color which is a turn off for those that love black colored smartphones.
The m6 is covered with metal with lines at lines at the back for the antennas. At 152.3 x 75.3 x 8.2 mm, the M6 is slimmer than its predecessor and 25 grammes lighter at 180g. this is very noticeable when held side by side.
the back glass curves inward at the edges and also at the front with the 2.5D glass construction- which was available in the M5 mini.
The aluminium at the back doesn't attract fingerprints at all but the glass up front attracts a lot of fingerprints and smudges but this is not really an issue since a simple wipe would take that all away.
the M6 feels more compact considering the fact that it has the same screen size as its predecessor.

DISPLAY
The Gionee M6 is the "smaller" version of the M6 Plus and it features a 5.5" AMOLED screen size while the M6 plus sports 6" AMOLED FHD display. In other words, the gionee marathon M6 comes with a 5.5 inch AMOLED display with FHD(1080 x 1920) resolution with a pixel density of 401ppi. for most people, this display size is the sweet spot for mobile displays. the diplay is indeed beautiful. this is mainly due to the infiite contrast that comes with AMOLED displays. Colours are saturated and vibrant. you can change the colour temperature in the settings too.the display isn't the brightest in the market but it is bright enough to be legible under intense direct sunlight.

CAMERA
Gionee decided to use the 13MP IMX 258 sensor from Sony for the back camera which has dual LED flash and an 8MP shooter for the front selfie camera. The 8mp selfie camera does well in low light also with a cool feature 'the screen flash'. although you'd want to take pictures in a well lit environment for more clearer snapshots

FEATURES AND CONNECTIVITY
Above the display is the earpiece flanked by notification light and the 8MP front facing camera to the left and light and proximity sensor to the right. Gionee also decided embed the fingerprint scanner at the home button which is beautifully embedded at the near end of the phone.

PERFORMANCE
The device performs significantly well; thanks to its Helio P10 processor and 4GB of RAM. Gionee M6 is powered by an octa-core processor clocking at 1.8GHz while the M6 Plus uses a faster Helio P10 chipset, the octa-core processor clocking at a higher 2GHz. The device performs flawlessly in multitasking and in playing many HD games.

BATTERY
The M6 Plus packs an amazing 6,020mAh battery capacity with reverse charging technology. Which simply means the two devices can serve as a powerbank to charge other phones and electronic devices via OTG while the M6 uses 5,000mAh battery capacity.

Gionee M6 And Gionee M6 Plus Security
Gionee upped their game in security on these devices with an inclusion of a dedicated security chip that offers 10 layers of protection for your personal data. Apart from that, the two devices uses fingerprint scanning technology as part of the security measures.

    1. We are gradually moving out of the old fashioned audio jerk in mobile phones.

      In new Android phones like these Gionee M6 And M6 Plus, Lenovo's Moto Z and Moto Z Force and China's LeEco have already scrapped the 3.5mm headphone jack; to listen to music on the company's three latest phones, users need to plug in USB Type-C headphones, go wireless, or use a dongle.

      So we are actually going wireless
