The Chinese handset maker, Gionee is famed for its slim and sleek handsets that are also powerhouse performers. So far, the brand has delivered some really good handsets in the price range of INR 15,000-20,000. However, now the handset maker is trying to step up its game and is entering the mid-range segment with its Gionee A1. This handset comes with decent specifications and powerful cameras, which would attract many buyers. Here is a brief overview of the handset for those who might be interested.
Powerful front camera: It is now a common knowledge that the front camera of the handset is no more used for their original purpose of video calling but for clicking selfies. Such is the hype of selfies that these days manufacturers are coming up with smartphones that have more powerful cameras on the front instead of back and Gionee A1 is one such smartphone. There is a 16 Megapixels snapper on the front panel of the handset whereas, only a 13 Megapixels camera on the rear.
2.5D curved display with Corning Gorilla Glass: The front panel of this handset is dominated by a large 5.5-inch display, which is brilliant to look at because of the 1920 x 1080 pixels resolution. What makes the display even better is the 2.5D curved glass, which comes with Corning Gorilla Glass protection.
Impressive battery: The flagship devices are usually skimpy on battery front since they tend to be quite sleek and there is not much space for a bigger battery. However, that is not the case with Gionee A1. This handset comes with a massive 4010 mAh battery, which is sure to last a day on full charge and more if used moderately.
Rear camera could have been better: While it is understandeable that it is a selfie smartphone and thus the front camera is much better than the rear. However, we personally feel that the rear camera should atleast match the one on the front.
