Design & Display
The smartphone portrays sheen simplicity in its 8.8 mm thickness, adorably designed rear and bezels thick enough to house the front camera at the top and Android navigation buttons at the base.
The security conscious fingerprint sensor gracing the rear adds good looks to the smartphone while the volume key and power buttons rock the right side of the smartphone.
Adorning the 16:9 aspect ratio, the smartphone has a 5-inch IPS LCD panel for viewing pleasure. Images and icons’s clarity is attributed to the 720 x 1280 pixels and 294 PPI.
When pictures are to be captured, an 8 MP camera comes to action. Illumination effects are rendered on images taken in dark conditions by a dual-LED flash.
Selfies get the luxury of an 8 MP front camera which teams up with f/2.0 aperture and 1.12 µm pixel size. Disappointingly, no LED flash support is available at the fore.
Performance X Software
MediaTek MT6737 chipset links up with a Quad-core 1.3 GHz CPU to handle the smarphone’s key functions. Performance wise, the smartphone is well groomed because of the 2 GB RAM dictating fluid multitasking.
Files such as music, videos, photos and documents can store up to 16 GB, given that’s the size of the internal storage. Excitingly, the storage can aggrandize to 128 GB with the implementation of an external memory.
Running of apps simultaneously on the same screen in a split-screen arrangement is what the Android 7.0 Nougat OS delivers. Furthermore, its software operations are well organized under Gionee’s customary UI – Amigo 4.0.
Micro USB v2.0 port and Bluetooth v4.0 allow the free flow transfer of files from the device to another.
In the form of 2G GSM, 3G HSDPA and 4G LTE network connectivity, the smartphone has little network worries. Well, that depends on the network supplier delivering network services.
In this case, Gionee doesn’t go for the colossal, instead it maximizes a non-removable Li-Ion 3 Ah battery as this device’s power pack.
