Feels Good.......!!
By Vaishagh Vaishu | 24 Apr 2014
Good for look.............But low RAM Chinese device maker Gionee has made a lot of buzz in the Indian smartphone market with its latest offerings in the premium as well as budget segment. This Chinese brand not only seems to be targeting brands like LG, Samsung, Sony, HTC with its premium offerings like Elife E7, Elife E6, but also it looks to be taking on Indian device makers like Micromax, Karbonn and Xolo with its budget smartphones.

Maximum value for money
By Abhishek Singhania | 3 May 2014
On buying this phone i was concerned on 2 issues, Internal storage capacity and display qulaity. Internal capacity of 4gb is adequate. 1 gb for user installed apps and 350 MB for photographs + expandable storage via sd card and the possibility of shifting most apps to the sd card. Display quality is fine no problem or limitation that I've felt. Only display drawback is that the backlight of the 3 navigation buttons below the screen do not adjust for brightness along with the rest of the screen, making them a pain when using the phone in the dark for a while. Processor is fast. Its a quad core Cortex A7. There is no lag. Phone comes with all connectivity features : BT, 2g,3g, wifi that you would expect in this range. Battery backup is not bad. lasts me a few days with 2g data on. wifi is not a power sucker. USB connectivity with the pc is good. Gionee's interface is clear and useful. Gionee has given a bundle of useful software like DU battery saver, Oneclean, Nq antivirus, phone accelerator, kingsoft office, whatsapp, Flashlight ( the flashlight is very good), google apps, tools, productivity etc. and some useful widgets. Their launcher and UI is cool The camera is fine. it's not ok in low light but comparatively and keeping in mind the range the camera is above average. Its 5 megapixels and doesnt disappoint. Now lets come to the minus points: 1. Weight. Its heavy. You get used to it and I think it's a durable build but its heavy. 2. lockscreen controls : any widgets on lockscreen don't work liek music player, messages etc. 3.If you use the clock widget(different from the weather - time widget) the widget's date will not update properly. there is some kink in the display of sender's name in messaging. if the message is from airtel or myntra or some group messaging server it sometimes shows 'N' and sometimes the name flashes. Overall i found this to be the most value offering phone under Rs. 10,000. Only contender would be Lumia 520/525 but i think windows phone is not upto the mark of android. Galaxy S duos offers 8gb storage I think, same display quality, 768mb RAM (compared to 500mb of Gionee) and the possible higher expectations from a samsung camera, less weight. However P3 optimally uses 500mb ram with its quad core processor and the storage difference is made up by an sd card. The only victory S duos can have is in terms of weight. Thought I'd give the new player a try see if it can become Samsung's Kryptonite. Sure has got it. It also looks better than the S Duos. P.S. - Got a cool backcover and screenguard in the box. Don't know if online sellers are giving that deal.

Nice phone , but
By Joseph Thomas | 30 Jun 2014
I am using this phone for the past 6-8 months as a user , the defects what i can say is that 1) it has a very low battery capacity , very low means vevevevevevevery low battery capcity . Maybe in 10 mins you can finish 20% of ur battery life . 2) The phone is slow , there is laging , huge laging and the phone becomes slow IF YOU ARE BUYING A PHONE FOR WEB SURFING AND MAIL , NEVER BUY THIS PHONE BECAUSE THERE IS A HUGE LAG AND THE PHONE HANGS UP . apart from thes defects , the phone has a Decent performance , Thank You jXXXXXX

An Average Smartphone
By mohsin khan | 20 May 2014
Gionee has shown its big presence as a great smartphone companys by launching its benchmarking smartphones like Gionee Elife series but they also targeted indian mid-range market by the pioneer range.Gionee Pioneer P3 is one of those device which does not ruin your pocket as I got this phone from Gionee Mobile Store,World Trade Park , Jaipur and it cost me Rs.7690 It has been powerpacked by a quad core processor which helps in multi-tasking.The 5MP Auto Focus camera is not so much good .The 4.3 inch display provides stunning graphics .Can easily play games like Subway Surfer,Temple Run ,Need For Speed : MW and many more but it would have been better if it was eqipped with 1 GB of RAM.The battery backup is also good and it has preloaded battery saver apps and antivirus app (Norton ).The sound quality of the device is also impressive .It is slim in size and you can keep it in your hands for hours without any discomfort .It's body is scratch resistant and you also get a flip cover in the box.I really loved the "in the box" headphones .I can say that it is worth the money you spend for it .At last based on my experience I recommend this phone for those who love multi-tasking but not for enthusiastic camera users.
