MobilityArena Buyer’s Guide Verdict
Gionee K6 is an interesting smartphone. There are no real competitors that offer its major specs – 6.2″ display, Helio P60, 6GB and 8GB RAM, 128GB and 256GB storage, and a 4350mAh battery – at the same price bracket of $122 to $155. The prices are simply hard to beat.
But on the flip side, the software is horribly old. Android 7.1 Nougat was released in 2017, and having it on a 2020 smartphone just rubs off wrong on those in the know. There are many interested buyers who do not care about dated software, and this phone will be a delight to them, but if you care about up-to-date software, you will find it hard to spend on the K6.
Our Buyer’s Guide Verdict is recommendation that we make based on our evaluation the specs of the device. It is a general guide designed to help you understand how much value a smartphone offers for its price. It is not a stamp of quality assessment or an endorsement of the device or of the manufacturers.
