2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 12+ Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Premium, aesthetic metal finish design
  • Feels good to hold in hand - the rounded-off edges allow it to sit comfortably in the hand and offers plenty of grip
  • The fingerprint sensor on the front of the device works well

Display

  • 2.5D curved glass display is nicely integrated into the shell of the phone, has vivid colours, good viewing angles, and comes protected with Gorilla Glass 3
  • The display's sunlight legibility could have been better

Software

  • Amigo UI offers a decent experience, and is pretty intuitive (although it could do with less bloat)

Performance

  • Armed with 2GHz octa-core P10 Helios processor and 4GB RAM, the phone runs smoothly whatever you throw at it - be it movies, games or browsing
  • Tends to heat up a bit when put under stress

Camera

  • The main USP of the Gionee A1 is its front 16-megapixel camera that offers a great selfie clicking experience, and comes with a front flash feature that makes taking selfies in dimly lit areas easy - the images captured have rich colour tones with an appreciable amount of detailing - offers strong competition to higher priced selfie smartphones from the likes of Oppo and Vivo
  • Decent rear camera - the shots captured have bright colours, fine details and delivered good depth of field when clicking in bright-light conditions - though it fails to impress in low-light

Battery

  • The 4, 010 mAh battery on the Gionee A1 is also very good and offers a good day-and-a-half backup in moderate to heavy usage
  • Decent charging speed - takes about 2 hours to charge the battery to 100%

More

  • A little bit on the heavy side
