Gionee Elife E6 vs Micromax Canvas Turbo A250 – Full Comparison


Gionee recently unveiled its latest flagship in the market, the Elife E6. This is an amazing device and fall in the line of devices like the Spice Pinnacle, the Intex Aqua i7, Micromax Turbo, Iberry Auxus Nuclea N1 and many others. So today we are pitching this device against the leader in the market in this category and that is the Micromax Canvas Turbo.

Gionee Vs Micromax

Design and Looks:
The design of the Gionee Elife E6 is quite aesthetic with a square shape and rounded edges so as to reduce the damages due to corner scratches and /or falling or hitting somewhere which is a good thing. It also has the 3 capacitive touch buttons up front for navigations purposes. The Canvas Turbo on the other hand has a curved design which makes the phone look almost like an oval due the heavy curves at the corners. This is actually a great design as it allows for greater handling grip. It also has the 3 capacitive touch buttons for navigation up front.

On the display section both the devices sport a 5” IPS LCD Capacitive Full HD display with resolution on 1920×1080 @ 441 ppi. So in terms of display both the devices are pretty evenly matched up and are together against each other head on.

This is where the Canvas Turbo scores ahead of the Gionee. The Elife E6 and the Turbo both have 1.5 GHz Quad core processors, but the Turbo has a Cortex A-7 processor coupled with a PowerVR SGX544 GPU to handle all the graphics operations of the device which on the Elife is handled by the processor itself which means greater load on the processor and hence slower processing and operations being performed.

Operating System:
Both the devices run on the Android 4.2 JellyBean so there is not much to compare here. But the Canvas Turbo comes with some small tweaks in the OS like custom apps, wallpapers, etc. which Micromax provides to make their phones unique in the market just the way Samsung, HTC and others put in custom UIs. Nothing yet is known about the Elife E6, but the Canvas Turbo is in for a 4.3 JellyBean upgrade and also maybe the 4.4 KitKat upgrade in the coming future.

Storage capacity and Main memory:
Both the devices come with 2 GB of RAM which is great but none of them come with expandable memory card slots, which totally sucks. We are all fans of expandable and portable memory that we can carry around and easily swap from device to device. But nevertheless both the devices some packing. The Elife E6 comes with 32 GB on inbuilt storage which is great whereas the Canvas Turbo comes with only 16 GB of internal space. Guess this is come cost saving technique by Micromax, but we are really not a big fan of this.

On the camera front, both the devices do not disappoint as they both have a 13 MP shooter at the back which is more than capable of shooting some great snaps as well as 1080p Full HD videos at 30 fps. Also both the devices have 5 MP shooters on the front as well for HD video calling and great selfies as well. Check these out girls!

Both devices are pretty feature packed. Gionee is not that great feature packed as compared to Canvas Turbo. It runs Android so if you want anything, you can just download the app and you are done. On the other hand the Canvas Turbo comes with some great in-built features like blow to unlock, smart scroll, smart stay which is similar to the Samsung Galaxy S4 and were also present in the previous flagship the Canvas 4.

As for the battery, both devices are quite packing, but the Canvas Turbo has a 2100 mAh battery compared to the 2020 mAh on the Gionee Elife E6. The difference is not much, but we can always use the extra hour of battery life. So the Canvas Turbo scored ahead of the Elife E6 here.

So all in all we checked out both the phones by pitching them against each other and the results are not at all surprising. Both the phones are pretty evenly matched but still on the basis of the under the hood specs, the battery and the features that come with the phone, the Canvas Turbo is the better phone among both the devices. The Gionee Elife is not a bad phone too and if you are looking for a device with a greater memory so in that case you can go for this phone. Let us know by commenting below what you feel about it and which phone will you prefer among the two.


  1. One more thing that people will be interested is the pricing for both the phones. As mentioned in the specs for both, they are quite a powerful phones but pricing will play a big role along with the post sale service experience.

  2. If I were to select between the two, I would prefer Micromax considering the brand name and the way the company has scaled in the last few years. Most of us know the after sale service provided by Micromax which is getting better day by day. On the other hand Gionee is new in India Market as compared to Micromax and I am not to sure about the post sales service for Gionee. I believe others would agree with me on this bit.
