What are the Key Features?
Here, I will tell you about the key features make this phone worthy to buy. Let’s discuss them one by one.
Gionee M7 Power, as it is clear from the name, this phone is basically a battery phone. Non-removable Li-Po 5000 mAh battery will give you more juice. This is the only phone with 5000 mAh battery so far. This 5000 mAh, which should be easily run for two days for medium to heavy use. But the bad news is, it does not support fast charging technology which is necessary for this battery size.
This phone has a 6 Inch, IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen display with 720 x 1440 pixels, 18:9 ratio (~268 ppi density), which is not really acceptable at this price point. The screen works fine and the viewing angles are decent, except for bright sunlight, where I had to struggle with M7 power display. A 4G supported dual SIM (Nano SIM) phone. Gorilla Glass 3 protection is provided to avoid minor scratches and damages.
The Gionee M7 Power has an extremely thin bezel on the sides. There is no home button on the front and there is a round fingerprint sensor behind to unlock the device. Now, Gionee M7 power is not suitable to use with one hand. It’s a little slippery and I had to struggle while using it with one hand and while scrolling down. However, the location of the fingerprint sensor works well for me and I had no trouble unlocking the phone with this feature.
Thanks to the 5000 mAh battery, the Gionee M7 Power is a little bulkier. The Gionee M7 Power is a thick phone of 8.60 mm. Although there is a textured back. Even the smooth metal frame on the sides seems slippery.
If we talk about the core engine, this smart device houses an Octa-core 1.4 GHz Cortex-A53 processor with Qualcomm MSM8940 Snapdragon 435 Chipset and Adreno 505 GPU. It runs on company’s Amigo OS 5.0.3 is based on Android 7.1.1 Nougat. The user interface is different from other smartphones. If you are a non-Gionee user, it may take some time to get used to it. There are no app drawer and users can simply swipe to reach different apps
- Primary Camera: Gionee M7 Power has a 13 MP back camera with autofocus quality. An LED flash is also added to the camera features. The camera is average. The shots taken in low light are not so big, the focus is not always fast, especially in the low-light conditions. The pictures taken with the use of Gionee M7 power camera look a little dull
- Secondary Camera: 8 MP front camera for HD selfies. The front camera works perfectly. It manages to get the details in the pictures to a large extent and they will keep the selfie lovers happy, in my opinion.
This phone will own all the useful sensors such as
- Fingerprint (rear-mounted)
You can buy this phone from the following range of colors
- Dark blue
Gionee M7 Power seems to be a pretty good phone. But on the basis of these specifications, the price range is too high. Where other brands offering a dual camera in the same price range. Gionee M7 Power has 13 MP rear and 8 MP front cam. 5000mah battery is useless if u put it with snapdragon 435, at least these should come with snapdragon 626-630 or mediatek helio P25.
