phonecurry editor's note based on opinion across 5 expert review(s)

WHAT WE LIKED
  • Amazingly slim at just 5.1mm
  • Beautiful, premium design
  • Good build quality
  • Nice display with good viewing angles, and sunlight legibility
  • Decent camera
  • Good video playback performance
  • Decent battery life

WHAT WE DIDN'T
  • 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
