Gionee M6 Mirror
When Gionee launched the Marathon M6 in Nigeria , everything made sense except for one thing ; the price. Gionee M6 costs a whooping #120,000 , a figure that will make you wonder if you really need a new phone.
Obviously , #120,000 is too much to spend on a phone at this time in Nigeria (Blame it on Recession) and so , many Nigerians could only “Dream” of it.
So what did Gionee do?
They launched a budget friendly version of the Marathon M6 ; say hello to the new Gionee M6 Mirror.
Gionee M6 Mirror was made for those who want a decent android phone with a “reasonable” price tag. It comes with a 5.5 inch HD display , 3GB RAM , 16GB internal storage , 13MP back camera & 3150mAh battery. Full details are available in this article. Read on

Gionee M6 Mirror Preview : What are the Features?
THE GOOD :
Corning Gorilla Glass Protection : The M6 Mirror has a 5.5 inch screen with corning gorilla glass 3. Incase you don’t know , gorilla glass is a screen protection technology that helps protects your phone’s screen from getting damaged when it falls down accidentally. In addition , gorilla glass also protects the screen from scratches.
Supports 4G Network : 4G network is the “in thing” and everyone wants a piece of it. The M6 Mirror supports 4G LTE network , however , be sure to check that your Nigerian network frequency is in line with M6 Mirror’s supported frequency (LTE band 1(2100), 3(1800), 7(2600), 38(2600), 39(1900), 40(2300), 41(2500)).
Android 7.0 Nougat update very likely : Over the years , Gionee has released new software updates to their smartphones , and going by that , the M6 Mirror will likely get android 7.0 Nougat update later this year.
Good Battery Life : The 3150mAh battery on Gionee M6 Mirror should give you at least 8 hours of heavy usage. The phone comes with quick charge ability.
External storage up to 128GB : Want more storage ? The m6 mirror has an external storage slot that supports up to 128GB memory card.
THE BAD :
16GB ROM is too small : Let’s be honest , 16GB internal storage is too small for a smartphone. This is 2017 for goodness sake. The least at this point should be 32GB.
No Fingerprint : Sadly , the Gionee M6 Mirror does not come with fingerprint protection.
