The Vernee M6 is slim, light, with a big screen and very modest price tag


This story is sponsored by Vernee. PhoneArena's opinions in this article have not been affected in any way!

Vernee has been around the block for a while now, offering decent-spec phones at aggressive prices, battling for that piece of the midrange pie. With the new Vernee M6, the company has an offer that will definitely draw some attention.

So, here's how it goes — the Vernee M6 is up for pre-sale and costs $129.99. However, the first 5 customers per day will be given $30 of their money back post-purchase, effectively bringing the price down to $99.99.

What does that kind of money get you with the Vernee M6?

Well, it's a modern-looking smartphone with a 5.7-inch, 18:9 screen on the front. Its metal body is just 0.27 in (6.9 mm) thick for an elegant look and feel. On the inside, there's an octa-core MediaTek 6750 processor running things. It's a midrange SoC that can tick at speeds up to 1.5 GHz. There's a generous storage chip of 64 GB and then there are 4 GB of RAM.

The cameras sound good on paper — there's a 16 MP shooter on the back that can focus on objects in 0.2 seconds. And, on the front, a 13 MP sensor takes care of the selfies.

Despite being slim, the Vernee M6 still packs a rather hefty battery — a 3,300 mAh cell in the trunk works in conjunction with software battery optimizations to keep the lights on for a good amount of time.

The phone comes with Android 7 Nougat out of the box and Vernee's light custom VOS user interface overlaid on top.

So, where can you get this $99.99 deal? Vernee's official site will link you to the authorized retailers, which are offering it right now!

Q: Pre Android Oreo + Mediatek SoC + An unknown Chinese Brand = ? Ans: No updates! It's unacceptable to see a smartphone launched well into 2018 with Android Nougat. According to XDA, it's now dead simple to upgrade a Mediatek Smartphone running Android Oreo to the upcoming Android releases thanks to Project Treble as you no longer need kernel source code to boot a generic AOSP, something which kept developers from making custom ROMs for Mediatek Smartphones in the past. So, you will be able to upgrade to Android P and future Android releases as long as it has an unlocked bootloader. https://www.xda-developers.com/obscure-mediatek-phone-kernel-source-android-oreo-project-treble/ This phone is nice and all but the lack of Android Oreo, actually Project Treble, kills it for me. Oh well, G'Day!

Plus none of these devices from them come with a gyroscope.

Piggybacking on what commenter #2 said, someone looking to spend $130 on a phone doesn't care about or even knows what any of the things you mentioned mean.You have to cater to your audience.

PA could you please include the gpu model when listing the specs please. Especially on these low end chips. I mean it is important and often overlooked.

It's a Mali-T860 MP2. Which is rated at 50 gigaflops. The new SD 450 has a GPU rated at over 120 gigaflops.

This mediatek 6750 is rated low end, not even mid range.

I would avoid Vernee. They looks nice, but the brand are not Google certified. So I am not sure its legal for them to run Google Play. And if the phones got some problems they have basicly no customer support. Go for some other Chinese more known brand like OnePlus, Huawei/Honor or Xiamoi etc..

Don't buy Vernee . Still in its warranty, I sent my phone to repair >3.5 months ago. They don't even reply to my questions (neither the seller, efox, nor vernee). Better safe then sorry: Do NOT buy!
