I have purchased it from local shop for rs 10100 . Looks good and doesn't feel cheap . Main USP is 4200 mah battery . Using it for last 4 days. And it kepts its promise. U can do wat ever u want to do , search net for whole day , listing to music , watching video , it will lasts for 2 days. though it takes time to charge fully around 3.5 hours . The display is not so crisp as its having less than 200 ppi density . And viewing angle is not so good. But coming to performance it will make u so happy. No lag at all. ANTUTU score on my set is 17660 . And you can also move ur application to SD card a great advantage over other same range phone . Camera is also very nice . On a single sentence if you are looking for a set around 14k take it.. your every penny will be invested on a right track. Just neglect that viewing angle issue and enjoy the real mobility
Battery, Looks, Build quality , Net speed, connectivity , no lagging , gaming device
only one - display is not that sharp
nic phone with big battery, 5inch display and 1.3GHz processor
I HAVE PURCHASED THIS PHONE ON 9TH MARCH & USING SINCE THEN. I HAVE NOT SEEN ANY LAGGING ON ANY GAME OR ANY APPS. APPS CAN BE EASILY MOVED TO SD CARD. SCREEN IS OK. INTERNET 2G IS VERY FAST. NOT USED 3G YET. PLAY ALL TYPE OF VIDEO FILES IN ITS OWN PLAYER. THE BIGGEST SURPRISE IS THE SOUND QUALITY & ITS BATTERY BACK UP. SOUND IS MUCH BETTER QUALITY THEN ANY SONY XPERIA PHONE WITHIN 20K. BATTERY IS GOING ON & ON & ON FOR 3 DAY WITH 3 HOURS OF INTERNET USING/DAY. GAMING EXPERIENCE IS MIND BLOWING & VERY SMOOTH. 1080P PICTURE PLAY NICELY. VIDEO QUALITY IS OK. PICTURE QUALITY EXCELLENT & FLASH IS POWERFUL.
BUY THIS MOBILE WITH CLOSED EYES. ITS FULL OF FEATURES & PAISE USUL.
VIDEO QUALITY IS NOT UP TO THE MARK. ASPHALT 7 CANNOT PLAY.
I got it couple of weeks back from ebay @9500 (thanks to discount coupon). I used Galaxy Y for more than 2 years and wanted a bigger phone with good battery backup, as I have seen other smartphone users searching for charging point all the time. There are only 2 options available in 10000 range, Micromax Canvas Power and Gionee M2. I saw its review on youtube and gogi.in and undoubtedly went for Gionee. Here is my findings after 2 weeks of usage.
- Being quad core, there is no lagging in phone and works very smoothly.
- Battery lasted for almost 3 days with full usage (wifi / 3G on all the time) and some game play between office hours.
- Display is awesome (not HD but comparable to some high end phones). Plays 1080p videos like a charm.
- Viewing angle is awesome on 3 sides but bad from top side. But you can compensate by rotating the phone 180 degree if needed.
- I played Asphalt 8 and no lag whatsoever.
- 1 normal sim and 1 microsim slot is beneficial to some people.
- Front camera is good too. Not as advertised by some people on gsmarena.
- You can use it as a powerbank and charge other devices with it.
- Good finishing.
- Bit heavy (200 gms) and if you have habit of using the phone while lying upside down, then it is not for you.
- The default widgets dont work on other themes (like Go Launcher). Maybe its just me or it would be resolved in next update, not sure.
- Charger provided charges it slowly. I use my wife's Nokia (1.5 A) charger. Takes about 4 hrs.
- Headphones are pretty average.
All in all, you cant get a better deal in range of Rs 10000. So all those who are skeptical, please go for it.
Hello 91mobiles.com & Ebay.in This really worth in, budget phone covering all features. Thank you Gionee. Keep it up. :)
Batter, Display, Speed, looks all A-1 & worth in budget.
Need to improve charger connector quality.
I have been using this phone for past one month and I must say this is the best phone one can have for 10K price. Exceptional battery life, very very fast processer (It have beat every costly phone including iPhone 5S & Samsung Top Phones in browsing speed). Always getting "H+" in browsing speed for BSNL in city locations, where as other phones which I checked are either "E" or "H". I am really happy and impressed with the performance and battery life. Only negative I can say about the phone is that it is slightly heavy. I am loving having this and enjoying the long standing battery and browsing & games speed.
Battery High Speed Processer Good Looks
I little Heavy.
Everything is fine with Gionee but why people mostly lagging in buying is about after sales. They said that they have gionee support centers in all main cities, but If anything goes wrong with mobile, do we get spare parts immediately (because manufacturing is in China) and also in affordable price because they has to be imported so additional Tax??? If Gionee can give clarity about these kind of queries, then Gionee will be the best among all other mobiles i believe.. also one more question is as they are ceiled peaces, are they use and throw phones? I saw most of those phones are totally ceiled, if people go to customer support with any issues how can they look at it with out braking front or back panel.just think..Do we have to pay for new panel also?
Please Gionee answer to these kind of questions and improve your sales rate...expecting +ve answer.
First of all,the HTC One look alike image uploaded on this by Amazon as a product image is FAKE. I have uploaded the real M2 images in product images section.
# Main Highlights
1) 4200mAh Battery - Can easily last 2 days of very heavy usage.
2) Quadcore - Mtk6582M processor
3) 1 GB Ram
4) Android 4.2 Jellybean.
4200mAh battery is unheard in a device shipping at this price range. The other 2 handsets that ships with similar battery are Lenovo P780 and Xolo Q3000,but both are priced much higher than this. Due to the huge battery it needs to accommodate,the device is bulky, and a little heavier than other smartphones. The display is a 5 inch one with a resolution of 480 x 854 pixels,which is not that great,but OK. The viewing angles are also not that great. The processor/gpu combination is powerful enough to play many of the games without much issues and the jellybean on board runs smooth. Gionee has opted to ship this with a custom UI instead of Android stock UI.
# Some Misc Info
This is a dual sim phone - One is the normal sim slot, while the other is a micro sim slot.
OTG is not supported
Sensors on board - Accelerometer,Magnetic Sensor,Light Sensor,Proximity Sensor,Orientation sensors.
Capacitive buttons are not back-lighted always.
Impressive for the price. 8MP rear camera takes good pictures. When it comes to video department,this can shoot 1080P videos at 30fps.
Quadrant ; 5800
Antutu : 17200
Nenamark 2 - 55fps.
# Verdict - Overall a great handset with a huge battery that can easily last 2 days of heavy use.Value for Money
4 stars only because of a low resolution display and an older Android version.
THE ULTIMATE GIONEE! You cant get all the features at this cost but gionee has tried to put maximum in it expect display but that's ok with the cost limitations! So buyers I wanted to guide you that the phone has no lags while playing GAMELOFT games like Asaphalt adrenaline 8..modern combat...etc , best talktime and standby..NOTE:If battery gets draining problem then ensure proper charging methods or see the tips in GOOGLE. Use only the charger provided! And of course the battery life depends on how much you USE it so battery for an average user is COMPLETELY ULTIMATE XTREME !
-Ultimate Battery life -Powerful Processor -Good Browser experience via Opera and UC -Camera better than xolo and karbonn!! But secondary camera has problems when in dark! [But according to me its ok again because of cost limits! -_-]
-Display 196ppi! (VERY BAD) [Here no according to the cost Gionee would have improved!]
I got this phone on 25th march. There is not noticeable lag in this phone except display. The viewing angle from the top side is very poor even small change in angle makes the screen dark not hard to see. battery is good. I faced some issue during encryption of the phone which important if you want to configure corporate emails in ur phone.
Battery looks cost
display .. specially viewing angle from top side. 4gb of internal memory can make you feel bad.
