Gionee Makes a ComeBack with its A1 selfie featured Handset


Taking a cue from the flat design of its earlier devices, A1 features a metal body which feels sturdy in hand and has a polished look. The overall look is clean but uninspiring.

The 5.5-inch full-HD display worked well indoors, delivering sharp colour reproduction and contrast with good viewing angles.

The rounded-off edges allow it to sit comfortably in the hand and offers plenty of grip. Armed with 2GHz octa-core P10 Helios processor and 4GB RAM, A1 ran smoothly with whatever we threw at it — be it movies, games or browsing.

On the right side are the volume buttons and power button placed while on the left side the sim tray can be found. When you take a closer look to the side you will notice on the top of both side that the metal frame is replaced with a plastic part for a better network reception. The plastic side parts are a part of the unremovable back cover which makes it a seamless design.

The 16MP front camera produced brighter pictures. It packs an LED flashlight to light up the images in case of low-light conditions. The images captured had rich colour tones with an appreciable amount of detailing.

Packing 64GB internal memory that can be expanded up to 256GB, storage is another key feature on the A1, allowing you ample amount of space to create and store moments, apps and music, etc.


The battery was performing well. Although with the combination of the 4010 Mah and Android 7.0 this battery could be better optimized in our opinion. Still the device makes it a whole day at least. In performance the smartphone is just a midrange device when looking at the specifications, but while using the smartphone we experienced a smooth operating device.


What was not upto our expectations

As with some other smartphones, the rear camera fails to impress in low-light conditions as noise becomes apparent. Watching videos and surfing outdoors was also a bit of struggle and we had to top the brightness to max levels for comfortable viewing.

Weighing 183 grams, the smartphone is slightly heavy to use with one hand.

Conclusion: Gionee A1 looks like a straight-forward phone with standard features and is again built for selfie-lovers.And we Recommend this Handset to our followers if you are a Photo centric person.
