Gionee CTRL V6L LTE: 4G Support isn’t Expensive Anymore
Gionee has always been updating itself as for keeping up with the myriad user preferences concerning technological supremacy and much more. The affordability quotient has also been taken care of by the company with hard hands for making the options extremely affordable to the modern flock. Recently Gionee has looked to introduce a few mid-range Smartphones which would be placed under the affordable price tag while conforming to the LTE standards. This inclination of the company towards LTE support at a tighter budget has transpired into the elusive CTRL V6L which comes with high-end innards especially subjected to a lot of attention.
Pros: The 5 inch screen is certainly on the expected lines while the innards look great with the inclusion of the Snapdragon chipset and the Adreno GPU. The dual-SIM functionality is certainly something to look forward to whereas the latest version of android OS has many takers.
Cons: In come the camera modules which at 8 and 5MP do not look as convincing as some other options pertaining to the same class of Smartphones. Battery backup is a letdown again with a mere 2000mAh unit to show for.
The LTE supported Smartphone is certainly a great step forward by the company which mostly targets the enthusiastic flock while inching towards the elusive crown at least in the Indian market.
We might be expecting a polycarbonate feel but Gionee often throws is a lot of surprises for the crowd to feel good about. The purporting has been quite successful though with the slimmer interface at 6.9mm predefined for the CTRL V6L. The glossy plate on the back is what we are expecting but a matte texture cannot be discarded as well. Gionee mostly keeps the designs and edges sharp whereas the V6L might not be an exception.
The 5 inch panel involves the HD display panel while offering a sizeable resolution of 1280x720 pixels. This might be a touch less than what we expected but the viewing angles have been taken care of by the company in past and the CTRL V6L shouldn’t be an exception. The pixel density however is on the acceptable front whereas the 16M color combinations would certainly feel vibrant when the gadget comes out internationally. The IPS panel is something which determines how the viewing angles would shape up based on the inclination and the CTRL V6L is in all readiness looking like the perfect exponent with the In Plane Switching technology pretty much intact.
Here is the Snapdragon 400 Processor which involves the Quad-core chipset into the mix. The clock speed at 1.2GHz is more of an added option which is quite acceptable in terms of firepower and usability. While this improves upon the multitasking needs pretty efficiently, the Adreno 305 GPU does add a lot to the graphical performances which do stack up pretty efficiently based on other hardware specs. Be it the mid-range gaming or efficient handling of multiple jobs, these innards are perfectly capable of handling the same.
The storage comes in as on dependable unit with a gig of RAM added into the scheme of things. One might look into the processor specs which are well paired up with 1GB of flash memory which allows one to multitask with ease. The built-in memory support is extremely sizeable at 8GB which offers quite a lot of space regardless of a large chunk dedicated to the OS and other preinstalled applications. The same can be extended up to a limiting 128GB which offers quite a lot in terms of potency and prudence.
Two camera modules are added along whereas the 8MP rear unit is certainly one of the better options in store for the user. This is one autofocus camera supporting the LED functionality with ease. One might also make use of the 5MP front snapper for clicking out acceptable selfies and attending important video calls with ease. The CTRL V6L thus looks quite stacked up even in this department.
The 2000mAh unit battery is more of a liability and the longevity expected isn’t on the higher levels. All the connectivity features including the LTE support are dealt which and this certainly must have accounted for a better battery support.
Get a bite of the KitKat 4.4 which is one of the recent versions of the elusive android platform, effectively refurbishing the user interface.
Here is one extremely potent option in CTRL V6L from Gionee which involves an exhaustive specs sheet while living up to the myriad expectations and hopes pinned to this newest LTE breed of Smartphones.
