If Gionee is trying to set itself apart from low-cost Indian smartphone companies, it's doing a good job. While dozens of brands with little to no name value are busy fighting it out in the sub-Rs. 15,000 segment, Gionee has dared to try selling a phone priced above Rs. 25,000. Our market generally has a low opinion of Chinese products, even though it's well known by now that nearly all Indian smartphone companies source their devices wholesale from China. Despite this (or perhaps because of this), Gionee seems to be trying to position itself above our local brands.

  • Nothing stands infront of this beast
    Saurabh Mandal (Apr 22, 2014) on Gadgets 360
    Unpacking: This beast packed in a compact rectangular box you will find inside 1. Mobile phone with built in battery 2. Beautiful Flip cover not looks cheaper (Not a sensor type flip it is a normal cover) 3. Two good quality scratch guards(Don't try it yourself until you are professional) 4. Three NFC tags 5. User manual and warranty card 6. Earphones with mic control (Good sound output but not best) 7. Charger and data cable 8. Micro sim ejector pin 9. Surprise mobile stand for watching movies This is complete package. You do not need to search for any extra accessories or pouch outside the box. Camera: 16mp rear camera and 8mp front camera. Indoor camera output is not that good can see alot of grains. But the outdoor camera and video shooting is very good. Front camera is just awesome no words. So far CAMERA is really really good for outdoor snap. It proves it as best camera. Performance: First thing i done is installed Antutu benchmark application and ran it. I got around 34700 in first run . it constant and it beats Note 3 benchmark every time i ran. and the first boot the RAM usage out of 3gb is around 750mb. For a full hd display it is very minimal usage since this beast does not have bloatwares installed it consumes very less RAM on boot up. Even it has inbuilt Phone accelerator application. You can just shake your mobile to cleanup the process and cache files and also you can disable the unwanted boot up applications. Memory : 2890mb Total Ram capacity and Out of 32gb 22.54gb avail for phone storage and nearly 4 gb available for application install. Processor: Qualcom Snapdragon 800 8974 2.2ghz - Krait 400 cpu and it is made of ARMv7-A quadcore processor. Nothing to say this processor is the beast at present market. Gaming(Updated): Adreno 330 gpu clocked at 450mhz . Everyone knows this is the fastest and high end gpu for smartphone available in marked at present which can handle any high end graphic intensive games smoothly. Installed GT Racing 2, Real racing 3, NFS most wanted, GTA Sanandreas, Virtual tennis, MC4 Zero hour all the above games are big games. All the games played at high graphics settings and played without any lags and butter smooth. All my friends amazed with the game graphics in full hd display which is near to PC graphics. It outperforms all the high end flagship mobiles. Display: This mobile have Full hd LTPS display panel. Really display colors are true and vibrant but not over saturated like samsung amoled displays. Watching videos and playing games on this mobile phone is just awesome . Everyone will look at your mobile. Touch reponse is way too good. Screen looks like pictures are popping out. Really good display. They have used new display technology JDI to improve the battery also. It plays all kind of formats by stock in full hd even 4k videos it plays butter smooth on mx player.

  • An Awesome phone
    Ved Agrawal (Apr 11, 2014) on Gadgets 360
    Gionee e7 is a wonderful gadget in the price offered. I suggest buying it over Note 3.................... One thing which is not up to the mark is the back cover.

  • User Review
    Navin Bhangale (Feb 26, 2015) on Gadgets 360
    Its been around 8 months i've been using it. The phone is in my top 3 list of best phones ever used, I have the 32Gb variant, good for gaming, watching movies, listening to music & the camera is very sweet but on a call, the voice from the other side is always faint. Faced not many issues with the device, just that it requires an advanced software. The hardware is outstanding but the software just feels weak. Manufacturer hasn't released Lollipop for it which is a drawback. No upgrades at all. I tried CyanogenMod, didn't work. The device heats up while gaming but cools down rapidly as well. There are no accessories for the product from the manufacturer. The phone is delicate, i once dropped it & the screen instantly went black & the device had to be sent for repairs which took 1 month & 11 days. Honestly, once i get bored of this phone & have to buy a new one, i might buy Gionee Elife E7 again.

  • SIMPLY IN A CLASS OF ITS OWN
    nik nigam (May 23, 2014) on Gadgets 360
    it is a dream come true as it is actually as good as or even better then the high-end phones like the samsung s5 and the apple iphone 5s...decent ram to give a smooth experience and make the phone future proof...has the latest software from google (via last ota update ).....great hd screen,handles all hd videos without a glitch...crystal clear camera that surpasses the samsung and apple phones easily....only minor problem is the crappy user interface on top of the stock android...but over all experience is great and is recommended as a better phone than any of the premium phones available as of now in the market

  • No Data encryption feature in the phone - Major drawback. Cannot set up outlook on the phone
    Vince Jathanna (May 28, 2014) on Gadgets 360
    The phone is good but has a major drawback which their software guys have not been able to help on despite frequent request. You cannot set up microsoft outlook email on the phone as data cannot be encrypted. Even entry level phones of other brands provide this facility. Now I'm stuck with carrying 2 phone one only to read my office emails:-( arrghhhhhh!!!
