General Mobile GM 6 is, as a result, an extremely successful phone model for its segment. In particular, the price on the $ 1000 line and the benefits of being within the Android One program are important and distinguish it from many competitors. For that reason, we can easily say that if you want the latest Android operating system and you are looking for an affordable price, this phone is for you.
If we evaluate it with other features, of course there are better models than that, there are worse models than that. However, in our opinion, every aspect of the price has been a perfectly balanced phone model. For that reason, if you are in search of a phone in the meantime, we definitely recommend you to evaluate it.
Those looking for a smartphone, especially the current Android operating system and the $ 1,000 line, should definitely evaluate the General Mobile GM 6.
We reviewed the GM 6, a new version of General One’s Android One program.
General Mobile was particularly popular in our country with GM 5 and GM 5 Plus models. In particular, General Mobile, who is an important representative of the Android One program in our country and is pleased with its users by producing affordable smartphones, also knows how to earn user loyalty by doing successful work on technical service.
General Mobile, which offered the new crop of the Android One program with the GM 6 model, did not give up at reasonable prices and priced the phone at 1099 TL. It is also possible now to pay 1000 TL for various online sales channels. In this sense, the GM 6 is facing the challenge as a cost-effective solution, especially considering the recent increase in the phone prices.
The General Mobile GM 6 is a model that many users will appreciate. The phone comes with 2 different color options, space gray and gold, with space gray color.
From the front, GM 6, which resembles most phone models, uses a plastic material on the back. But this plastic material gives a good feel to it, let’s say it. On the other hand, it does not slip as it is in metallic and glass models; which reinforces grip.
The phone weighs 150 grams, 8.6 mm thick. But on the phone, using a 2.5D screen and the presence of a rounded metallic frame makes it a slim profile.
You can open the back cover of the GM 6 and change the battery. This is good news for those who want to buy a spare battery.
Under the battery you can find the microSD card slot. Let’s also say that the model you have is a double SIM card at this point. So you can use two SIM cards in this phone at the same time.
When we look around the phone, we see the sound buttons on the left side and the power button on the right side. On the lower edge is the microUSB slot, on the upper side is the headphone input. In addition, the bottom section is a single-sided speaker.
In short, if we mention the speaker’s sound quality in this step, we can say that it offers a beautiful sound profile. Yes, even if it’s a single channel, it’s nice to have 5 + 1 sound effects with Dolby Audio. Also, let’s say that the box-shaped metallic headphones also support this.
Display and technical staff
In the GeekBench and AnTuTu Benchmark tests we did, GM 6 produced 36234 points from the AnTuTu Benchmark with close results with TP-Link Neffos C5 Max, Asus Zenfone Selfie, Reeder P11SE Art and Lenovo Vibe K5 Plus, while GeekBench had 645 single core score, 1686 he got a multi-core score. You receive this in the general use of the phone. The phone, which offers a streamlined operating system, satisfies transitions between applications.
The general impression of the phone’s game point is that it performs well in simple and moderate games. In games such as PES 2017, you are witnessing screen jumps. In that sense, I have to say that the phone is not very powerful.
The most important feature of the GM 6 is the inclusion in the Android One program. The phone, which will receive future Android updates under Google collaboration, is currently using the Android 7 Nougat operating system. For General Mobile Android 8, it’s already slipping. So GM 6 will be one of the first phones to get Android 8.0. In that sense, we can easily say that users who prefer this phone will continue to use the current operating system.
Using a simple and simple interface, the phone offers Google’s built-in applications. Among them, through the application of Photos, the phone keeps your photos in one place, which in this way can store your photos unlimited on the cloud. So the photos you take do not fill the memory.
There is also a handy tool called GM Assistant in the interface. While this tool informs you about your phone’s status, it also offers personal service applications. Here you can clean the phone from one spot, save power, access accelerator and cooler applications. On the other hand, you can block people you do not want to call from here, and you can access features such as data backup and theft prevention.
If you have any hardware or software problems with your phone, it is possible to send it directly to the General Mobile team along with the screenshot. This is an extremely useful option. But of course you have to be a member of the system in order to use it.
It’s placed according to the category of the cameras of the GM 6. When we look at the rear camera, we see a 13 MP sensor here. It is also important that there are double flashes here. The 4x digital zoom and autofocus are other details that stand out in the rear camera. On the front camera we see 8 MP. Here, too, is a relatively good flashlight for low-light self-luminaries.
We liked the photos taken by GM 6. Especially when compared to many other models in the classroom, it was nice to have autofocus and to ensure the color accuracy of the pictures taken. Of course, as we said for every phone model in this segment, when light conditions drop, the gren and color accuracy starts to wobble. But you can get good results especially in daylight.
The camera interface is fairly simple. Maybe he could be a little more privatized. But still here we can see features like PIP, panorama shooting, HDR. Let’s also say that you can record Full HD video over the phone.
