The Chinese handsert maker, Gionee has been launching some impressive smartphones in the country, which not only look good but also perform great. Gionee launched a budget smartphone called Pioneer P5L back in 2014, which costed INR 10,000 and came with support for all Indian 4G LTE frequencies. Now, it seems that the handset maker is moving along the lines of Samsung and launching a new facelift of the same handset. It has already launched the 2016 variant of Gionee P5L and from the looks of it, this handset is slaying it.
On the design front, Pioneer has made few but subtle changes from the previous P5L and the new device look much much better. It features the same polycarbonate bar form factor but with narrower bezels, glossy back and revamped soft keys. It has a unibody chassis so that rules out the removable battery, which is not an issue to grovel about in recent times.
Gionee has launched the new smartphone with a 5-inch display mounted on the front panel, which is an ideal size for mobiles. The display has a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels, which means users can watch HD content on the device.
Gionee Pioneer P5L (2016) comes with the Android 5.1 Lollipop operating system pre-installed in it, which is optimised for battery and and stability. Moreover, the stock Android has been skinned with brand's own Amigo UI, which is a drawer-less interface designed for ease of usage.
Performance and Battery Life
The handset has been equipped with a decent Quad-core processor that has been clocked at 1.3 GHz, which is moderately decent. This processor has been equipped with 1 GB of RAM for smoothness and efficiency. This handset is powered by a 2300 mAh battery, which is not much to go by.
Gionee has placed a modest 8 Megapixels primary camera on the rear panel of this smartphone, which will make photography enthusiasts quite happy. It is also a selfie smartphone that comes with a 5 Megapixels camera module on the front panel.
This dual-SIM smartphone comes with support for both 4G LTE and 3G, which will allow users to stay connected to high speed Internet at all times. There is Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi Direct, microUSB, Bluetooth and GPS as well for the convenience of its users.
