Gionee S6 Pro

1 / 13

The smartphone market is flooded with options in the budget and flagship price segments, and more often than not the purchase decisions can be definitive based on brand perception or the success (or the lack thereof) of the previous iterations of models. However, the mid-range segment is one where the buyer faces a lot of confusion as the lines are very blurred between what’s good and what should be good. The Gionee S6 Pro, complete with a premium finish and some UI goodies is contending for the buyers’ attention in this space.

OUR VERDICT

The Gionee S6 Pro is definitely one very good-looking phone. The metal unibody design not just looks classy, but also feels very well built. The specifications are designed to perform well, and in our tests, they did just that. The Gionee S6 Pro doesn’t score mind-numbing scores in the benchmark tests, but in real world usage it does deliver on what one expects it to. It handles everyday tasks very well, performs well in gaming, and the Gionee S6 Pro can safely be called an all-rounder. The problem, with the Gionee S6 Pro, however, is that it is priced a little too high if compared to the peers in the segment. The Lenovo Zuk Z2 Plus, for instance, is available for less but packs a much better processor and the performance too is a couple of notches above the Gionee S6 Pro.
