Worried About My New Gionee M6 Battery by Judek2(m): 6:02am On Jan 01, 2017
hello my people, happy new year.
i have read a lot of encouraging write ups about the almighty Gionee m6 battery, and i decided to get one for myself. but my first use of the phone was not impressive atall. the battery drops like any normal average phones out there, opposed to what ive read about the battery, and i doubt this can even charge a nokia touch.

im so worried, and many questions are running throuh my mind. i wonder if i have messed mp my phones battery or i got a fake Gionee m6

check this upload from a user here on NL as against my own battery after full charge. NO GAMING, NO VIDEOS, NO MUSIC. Yet battery droped so bad

Re: Worried About My New Gionee M6 Battery by Judek2(m): 6:06am On Jan 01, 2017
my battery dropped to 78% without playing music or videos after 5hours, 3mins. A user here had his drop to 76% after 19hours, 47 mins. what is the matter with my battery, should i return the phone please, im i using an m6 clone

With everything I see being active on your phone,am not surprised it's dropping charge like the Naira..only you alone got your Bluetooth, WiFi and HotSpot on and you're complaining about the battery depleting?

The first pic did not show usage bro.. .... What if the owner did not touch the person 17hrs out of the 19hrs?
Let him show show the screen meter for us to know how active the phone was during the 19hrs.

So what happens to the 1 to 2 days heavy usage. I've not even played music or games yet.
This battery can't last 15 hours heavy usage.
I bought a clone.

The time is there. Even if he didn't use the phone atall for 19hrs and the battery was at 76%.that's very impressive

So when I start to download my heavy duty ppsspp games, get thousands of apps, music, videos and pictures, the battery will them last for about 4 hours.

The phone is still a Virgin now. Not impressive atall

I doubt it's a clone,that's an AMOLED screen am looking at and that's hard to clone,having said that always take a manufacturers battery claims with a pinch of salt..
Also try to minimize those Apps and features which are battery hogs when not in use:WiFi,Bluetooth, HotSpot and Facebook will definitely deplete your battery if constantly active..

Bro, you've got your hotspot, 3G, and Bluetooth on. If that's how you typically use it, then 22 percent in 5 hours isn't bad.

Besides, you don't know what the guy who got 17 hours was doing with his phone at the time.

My M5 is spectacular with its battery at least. Only on 3G for about 40 minutes now. Dropped 1%. It's larger capacity than the M6 though.

I just noticed something disturbing. After counting the USAGE SINCE LAST FULL CHARGE, I noticed that the total usage from all apps is 43%, meaning I should have 57% available.
But It's now 19%

This shows that the phone power usage calculation does not correctly correspond with the depletion of the battery.

True, konga is even more reliable... I got my m6 directly from gionee care shop at Mokola r/abt Ibadan and it's working perfectly, no issues whatsoever ... It's overworking sef. Lol.. See my battery usage today na The phone wasn't even fully charged as at when i plugged it by past 12am, it got to 83 percent.I have been pressing it non stop from midnight till now.. It only rested from 4a.m-8a.m when I was asleep. So far, i have gotten 16 hrs battery life plus my heavy usage on 3g... So the issue is not general at all, the phone has a bad ass battery, cos i am always using mine heavily.
