Design & Display

Gionee F205

Starting out with the fore, the presence of the Full View display made the room for bezels limited, thereby appearing minimal. Beauty at the fore is further expressed by the curvy outlay of the 2.5D curved glass.

With each edge of the 8.8 mm thick smartphone artistically rounded, the aluminium alloy body material gleans at the rear. At the rear, the camera and flash are set up at the top left corner in a sleek horizontal format.

The 5.45-inch display lashed out with the 18:9 aspect ratio yields excellent display quality. The Full View display allows users more display area to maximize viewing pleasure. Furthermore, HD+ resolution of 720 x 1440 pixels and 295 PPI ensure the display quality is not only crisp but also sharp.


Camera

With the 8 MP rear camera, sound images are produced. Luckily, with the LED flash, images taken in low light conditions receive brightness. Added features such as auto focus and face detection amplify the workability of the camera. More photography features can be explored on the smartphone given the presence of HDR, panorama, ISO and Geo tagging.

That said, a 5 MP front-facing camera generates the selfies on the smartphone. Disappointingly, no LED flash is on tap at the fore to brighten the occasion.


Performance X Software

At the helm of affairs, MediaTek MT6739 serves as the SoC integrating vital operations on the smartphone. A Quad-core ARM Cortex-A53 CPU of 64-bit architecture works assiduously with the chipset. Upon reaching a max speed of 1.5 GHz, the smartphone adopts the 28 nm process technology. In light of that, a 2 GB RAM suitably takes care of fine multitasking.

Pressing further, the soft work on the smartphone is handled by the Android 7.1.1 Nougat OS. In the skin of Amigo 5.0 UI, the smartphone delivers delectable functionalities.

Substantial amount of files can be stored in the 16 GB internal storage which can enlarge to 128 GB with the aid of a MicroSD card.

Moving ahead, easy transfer of files is achieved with the micro USB v2.0 port and Bluetooth v4.0. Meanwhile, location services have the GPS as the controller.
