The GAN 356 i2 is GAN’s latest update to its successful 3x3 smart cube, the GAN 356 i. Changes include faster charging time (2 hours), longer battery life, significantly longer standby time (60 days), and more storage!
The GAN 356 i2 utilises Bluetooth to pair with your Android or Apple device through GAN’s free app, ‘Cube Station’. This 3x3 speed cube is equipped with an internal gyroscope and full motion tracking, which work in tandem to give you statistics on each solve such as turns per second, rotations, and move count. This is a great cube if you want to time yourself, train, and battle other cubers worldwide!
The GAN 356 i2 is also compatible with the GAN ROBOT, a cubing robot that can scramble and solve your cube.
The cube itself features a brand new design with large internals and quick, crunchy feel. This cube definitely brings the best of both worlds between technology and performance.
Please note: In order to charge the puzzle, you must place it in the charging port with the white side facing up. All other configurations will not work. Returns accepted only if the product is unopened in its original packaging. Please be advised the Cube Station app may not be compatible with mobile operating systems outside of iOS and Android.

Please note that some new cubes when being used for the first few times may experience what is termed a "pop".

Pops are typically not considered a defect if the parts which come off can be reassembled by hand.

Its been perfect for breaking down CFOP stages, and also so easy to just grab it and time without worrying about where to set my phone. Cube itself is solid, a bit more prone to lockup than Gan M or 354, but feels good overall. Bluetooth has worked fine, no disconnect issues and almost never getting out of sync (on iphone 11). Perfect for what i wanted!
I got this cube about a week ago and already I got a new PB. It was great that you get to see all these different stats about your solve in personal training as well as racing against someone else online. The only problem I’ve had is with the app, twice now I’ve solved the cube and it didn’t recognize it as solved. Great cube overall though.
Love this cube. It is a bit loose for me though. The app is both very good and very bad. Generally the app is sluggish but the content is pretty good. The bad part is that even the v2/i2 whatever still gets mixed up when you’ve solved the cube. From what I hear it’s better than the first one. Overall I’m very happy to have it. I also have the GoCube. I’d usually suggest to get the GoCube over this one. But if you want to use one to train and get faster I’d go with this Gan356 i2, even with the random DNFs.
This cube is nice in turning but there are many bugs in app and the bug. The cube always needs to reset when using the app. It also pauses when solving. The gyroscope in the cube isn’t working properly. When the green side is facing me, in the app it is showing the red side even after resetting it and putting it in the green side. Not happy with the purchase.
I give the GAN 356i v2 3 stars because , it is not perfected. Normally I stay away from anything that relies on a smartphone and an app. The reason I purchased the 356iv2 is to use it with the GAN robot. Unfortunately the user needs to 'log in' in order to use the scramble function. I REALLY WISH that the designers of these things
would consider the option to use ALL functions not related to connectivity available WITHOUT having to log in. The cube it's self is well , ok , but not even close to
the feel and response to say the x,xs,air etc.. I greatly appreciate GAN bringing good new ideas to the cube community but this is still a work in progress.
I got this cube right when it came out because I wanted a Bluetooth cube and the i had just been discontinued. Overall it turns great, long battery life. The one thing is the app, it is not very good, but they are making a new one, good trainer cube, just finished learning CFOP with it. If you like cubing, this is hands down a good investment
Cube is generally okay, but a bit wobbly (always feels like it's going to pop). You can't return it once it's opened. The software is not very good and Gan support is effectively non-existent. Seems to have potential, but right now feels more like a novelty.
Comparing to last year when there were too many bugs, these days Gan 356 i is awesome. It still does not feel as nice as Gan 356 XS, but the online battles make it way more fun to play with. It’s the only cube I carry around with me. Also seeing your progress over time makes it more interesting and engaging. In short, I LOVE IT.
I like the cube, but it feels like this technology has a lot of room for improvement. The app is not intuitive, and I have to reset and manually tweak the cube orientation on every connection. The apps are promising, but not great, but I understand it does get updated often.
I do like the auto start and stop on solves, and the CFOP split times, but further details (by F2L slots) would be nice.
I have had no issues connecting the cube to the app on my iPhone. But I have had no success connecting it to a browser timer on my Windows 10 machine, and I don't know how to get any support from GAN to solve this issue.
The cube itself is good, not great. My cube is a bit too loose, even after swapping to the tighter springs, and I have the screws adjusted to the tightest position (there are only two possible positions). So my solves on this cube are slower than on my Moyu RS3 M or GTS3M.
If I had known all these things before I bought this cube, I would have probably still bought the Gan 356i... but probably the Play version. Even though the cube likely feels the same and uses the same app. It's still a fun toy, but I'm a bit disappointed in the gyro (considering the price difference). Every time I reset the orientation on my cube, then watch it drift to another face during my solves, I just learn to ignore it.
