Design: The phone definitely feels sturdy, and the polished back is quite good-looking. The front is dominated by glass which comes right up to the corners of the phone and meets the curve of the metal rim. It fit very well in our hands.

Specifications: The handset is backed by a 4010mAh battery which the company claims can last for up to two days with mixed usage. The Gionee A1 supports fast charging which is a nice feature to have. This is a hybrid dual-SIM phone, and 4G is supported on both SIMs, but only one at a time. You also get VoLTE (voice over LTE), Wi-Fi n, Bluetooth 4.0, and USB-OTG.

Camera: It Has 13-megapixel rear camera on the Gionee A1 has a dual-LED flash and f2.0 aperture. It uses a Sony IMX258 sensor. The camera app offers plenty of modes to choose from including night, professional, time-lapse, slow-motion, smart scene, and GIF. The Gionee A1’s camera app also offers a translation feature that lets you photograph words or even few lines and translate them to another language. Only a few languages are supported, and the default is English to Simplified Chinese. The rear camera can record 1080p and 720p videos, and the quality was decent.

Performance: The Gionee A1 definitely won’t disappoint you in terms of performance, and the octa-core processor feels adequate for most jobs. The handset packs 4GB of RAM, and during our review, we found that there was around 1.8GB of RAM free at any moment. The fingerprint scanner on the Gionee A1 is really quick and we like the fact that the phone can be unlocked with just a touch, without us needing to press the home button.

Games like Asphalt 8: Airborne and Dead Effect 2 ran without frame rate drops, and we could flip between games and other apps without any lag. The 5.5-inch screen is good for movies and videos, and we had a good time streaming shows on our test unit.

Price: As per the price is concern, Gionee A1 mobile comes with the price tag or Rs. 16,699.


  • Premium and compact built quality.
  • Huge storage with 64 GB Internal and 256 GB SD Card support.
  • The front camera also featuring LED Flash.
  • Support Dual Nano SIM Cards.
  • Good 16MP Camera for Selfie Lover.
  • 4010 mAh battery with 2 Days backup.


  • Lots of preinstalled non-removable bloatware.
  • Not a pure Dual SIM supported phone.
  • The phone also has Heating issue while processing-heavy tasks.
  • Battery is non user removable.
  • No Special protection for the display like Gorilla Glass.
  • Feels slightly heavy in the pocket with 181 grams weight.

My Final Words:

The Gionee A1 is a solid option in its price segment, and will definitely make heads turn with its good looks. Battery performance is impressive, and the cameras fare well enough. If you are planning to purchase smartphone under 17k rupee then Gionee A1 is an great alternative.
