Gionee is one of the Chinese smartphone manufacturers that has focused more on its offline presence than online retail in India. At a recent launch event, the company boasted about how it has grown through offline channels over the years while other brands are fighting it out on e-commerce platforms. One factor that has worked well for Gionee so far is the fact that its product portfolio is spread across several price segments. Interestingly, Gionee has been tapping selfie-obsessed users across these segments, and the latest addition in the company's lineup is another attempt to do just that.

Gionee A1 Summary

The Gionee A1 is a solid option in its price segment, and will definitely make heads turn with its good looks. Battery performance is impressive, and the cameras fare well enough. This phone's biggest problem is a heating issue, and buyers will have to deal with the rear constantly getting uncomfortably warm with even day-to-day usage. The fact that this phone runs Android 7.0 Nougat gets extra points from us, though the software bloat is disappointing.
