  • Amigo UI 2.0 is still a mess

Smartphone features are improving faster than you can spell the word 'smartphone', but one aspect that is lagging behind is battery life. The only feasible option at the moment is an extra battery pack. This is not convenient since it's one more thing to carry around, and the battery pack needs to be charged as well.

Gionee Marathon M3 Summary

The Gionee Marathon M3 has a stupendous battery life and the primary camera can capture great images in normal lighting conditions. The only problem we have with the phone is with Gionee’s skin on top of Android 4.4.2 - Amigo UI. If you are someone who watches a lot of movies on the go, we think you will appreciate the stupendous battery backup of the Marathon M3.

  • Gionee M3 - Gurudath Pai
    Gurudath Pai (Nov 20, 2014) on Gadgets 360
    Had picked this phone jsut towards thefact that it was 5000 mah battery with Android 4.4. The phone has a decent display and audio quality at the 50% level is fine , beyond that there is voice / music just screams. No great shakes from 8 Mega pixel camera, though 3x zoom is just fine for normal photo shoots. Gionee claims to have a 5000 mah battery, however definitely doesn't live upto the expectation . With a minimum 6 Hours of Wifi (not connected to mobile data services), with no 3G (working on 2G network) connected, 20 photograph clicked in a day, hardly 2.5 hours of talk time used , single sim operation - the battery dipped to 64%. post reaching 30% the battery drained out almost in 1 hours time. Some of the built in apps like Weather cannot be uninstalled nor can be stopped by the app administrator, nor does force stop the app works ultimately eating into the battery life. Also the Gionee launcher just gives up with a message of "Gionee Launcher failed to launch". I also have Lenovo P780 is a much better phone with 4000 mah battery lasts atleast 3 days on 3G, minimum of 8 of internet browsing on WIFI and 3-4 hours on mobile service provider internet, with a 5 hours talk time (the above is my normal usage). Gionee M3 is definitely not recommeded. average phone

  • To all my friends
    Anil Sharma (Dec 22, 2014) on Gadgets 360
    To all my friends........ Don't buy Gionee phone.........Don't put your life in danger......... I had purchased this phone last month after seeing many reviews for its longer battery life & other applications. But it is far below my expectations & I am experiencing severe headache during its use.......... I informed its customer care center, But customer services are very much horrible & below from at par....... I had visited Gionee service center but I was surprised to hear that it's not the phone problem, it's your problem. No doubt its now my problem without any solution but to put my life in danger. Now I am again forced to buy a new mobile handset. It is made in China. It's printed SAR values are very low but I am doubtful about it.
