In terms of performance, the Gionee A1 is anything but disappointing since the octa-core processor suffices for most jobs. Out of the 4GB of RAM, we discovered that at any moment, 1.8GB of RAM was always available.
One setback we noticed was that the phone got hot after just 30 minutes of usage, be it for gaming, navigation or talking on the phone. It has even restarted after getting heated up, which isn’t acceptable for a phone at any price point.
The Gionee A1 has a fantastic audio enhancement in terms of volume and clarity from earphones as well as speakers. Even in areas with a poor network, the phone has excellent audio clarity.
