Editor's Note [Negatives]
  • Feels a little too delicate at 97g
  • Glass and metal design means the phone doesn't have a very good grip (so using a case is a good idea)
  • Gionee's proprietary Amigo UI 2.0 is not the most refined Android skin around
  • Lot of bloatware
  • Sluggish performance, when multi-tasking
  • Average loudspeaker
  • Very large - operating the phone with one hand is always going to be a problem
  • One-handed operation option/setting is not as useful as that of LG or Samsung phablets
  • Lot of bloatware
  • Average bundled earphones
