The GAN 356i Play is the latest addition to the GAN Smartcube collection. The GAN i Play boasts many of the same great features as the original GAN 356i which was released back in 2020, however, with some minor changes. The most notable changes are the removal of the internal gyroscope and increased battery life.
The GAN 356i play connects to your smartphone via Bluetooth and uses an application named "Cube Station" to aid your solving and give you tips and tricks on improving.

Bought this Bluetooth cube over a week ago and very pleased. I got the stickerless version. Colours bright and cube is very smooth. As a noob to cube solving, the selling point for me was the GAN app now allows CFOP and other algorithms to be learned. App representation of cube moves as you move the cube. Not a cheap cube, but app gives good incentive to keep learning and testing yourself. It can also time you solving, allows online solve battles with others, etc. There are many youtube reviews if you want to know more. I am very happy with the purchase.
My 14 years old son is still very excited, after 2 months using his new cube.
I am very satisfied!
Nice cube with a decent app.
The cube is pretty much what I expected. I bought the sticker less version which has a frosted finish and feels like the plastic is the same as the Gan 251m. Personally I don't mind that but I know some people don't like it. Go for the sticker version if thats a problem. Magnets would be better if they were a bit stronger but thats person preference, they will be just right for a lot of people.
Connection to the app is bluetooth and quite straightforward. I haven't noticed any problems there and have tried it on Android and iOS with no difficulty. Connection and use with either system is easy and works extremely well. It has functions for timing, learning and practicing algorithms and it gives a breakdown for each part of your solve. This is really useful for seeing which areas need be worked on, eg it breaks down your solve into cross, f2l and last layer so it will be easy to improve your overall time with this information. It also lets you know how fluid your solves are. .
Overall this is an excellent tool for anyone who wants to lower their personal best times. It will definitely make this easier to do but you will still have to put the practice time in. There is not an app that will do that part.
