    About the Phone

    Pros:

    • It has budget pricing.
    • The phone has a nice build.
    • The box comes with a silicon back cover and a screen guard.

     

    Cons:

    • The phone has poor viewing angles on display.
    • There is no fingerprint sensor to unlock the phone.
    • It has mediocre battery life.
    • The battery is non-removable and does not charge quickly.

    The Gionee P7 price in India starts at Rs. 5,290 and is available in colours like White, Grey and Latte Gold. It has an internal storage of 16GB which is expandable up to 128GB via microSD card. 

    The front camera is 5MP whereas the rear camera is 8MP with an LED flash. The battery is 2300 mAh, and the phone runs on Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) with a 1.3GHz quad-core processor.

    The body of the Gionee P7 is made of plastic but still looks attractive little due to its glossy panel. The panel, however, is also prone to fingerprints. 

    The back side comprises a camera, an LED flash, Gionee’s Logo in a vertical symmetry and mono speakers at the bottom. The back is removable in case you need to access the battery, the micro-SD and dual-SIM card slots.

    The front-facing camera is on the left of the earpiece, and the top of the phone also has a headphone jack. For the power button and volume rockers, they use its right side, and the micro-USB port is at the bottom.

    The 5.0-inch display has a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels and 294 PPI. The colour reproduction of the display is decent, and the viewing angles of this phone are average. The colour shift from angles is evident when you play videos and view it from different angles on the screen. The panel tends to look pixelated and washed out. The screen brightness is good under regular sunlight, but this may not be the case under harsh sunlight.

    The Gionee P7 has a custom Amigo 3.2.0 UI and Android 6.0 Marshmallow as the OS. Updating the software gives you a new panic button feature that triggers the emergency call by pressing the power button three times. The device consists of a 2GB RAM powered by MediaTek MT6735 1.3GHz Quad-core processor and Mali-T720 GPU, but the phone still lags after opening 10-12 apps in the background like Facebook, Instagram and other apps. The device gives 16GB internal memory out of which the only 9GB is available for users.

    The front camera is average. The rear 8MP camera doesn’t produce phenomenal images. It lacks details in the photos, and the noise levels are too high in low-light conditions. Having said that, the P7 camera does have a Pro mode that allows you to adjust the ISO, White balance, Focus, and Shutter speed. It also offers different modes such as night, beauty mode, time-lapse, panorama, GIF, and HDR, amongst other filters.

    The Gionee P7 battery is 2300mAh, which lasts for 4 hours and 55 minutes after trying out the video loop test. The result is quite poor considering what other phones in the same price range offer. In case you are continually operating the phone all day, it is advisable to carry your charger around or a power bank.

    To sum it up, a lot of features are compromised in the Gionee P7, even for its price range. There isn’t one feature to make it stand out against its competitors. If you seek to buy a phone under Rs. 10,000, it is advisable to go for other phones within this range such as the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4, Redmi 3S, Lenovo K6 or even the Moto G Play.
