Gionee P7 Max Review

Gionee the 10th largest Smartphone manufacturer Globally has launched its latest midrange Smartphone which we feel is a mistake to launch at this age of hard competition from Chinese Companies and iwe believe you shouldn’t buy it unless you are a die-hard fan of Gionee’s thinner the better strategy nevertheless if you ought to know about the Smartphone then here is our full Review at the brand-new uninteresting Gionee P7 Max..,

Build and Design:

As, always let’s start with the Build and surprisingly the Gionee P7 Max is built like a tank and is one of the most interesting device but sadly it is still a plastic Smartphone with a glossy plastic at the back which looks more like a Glass back which is a fingerprint magnet but it is indeed a plastic back and is indeed Removable, while we are done talking that lets take a look at the placement of the device, as on the Right we have the power Lock and unlock key and volume rockers and at the bottom it’s quite busy as We have the Micro USB portprimary Microphone and and on top we have the 3.5MM Headphone jack and on the back we have the 13MP f2.0 Camera Single LED flash anNew Gionee LOGO and Secondary microphone  and at the front We have a 5.5″ HD IPS display, 5MP CameraEarpiece Grill, Some Sensors and 3 Capacitive navigation buttons..,


The Gionee P7 Max comes with a 5.5″ HD IPS display with a resolution of 1280*720 with 256 PPI which to be honest is not acceptable at this price Segment and us the only part I was most disappointed but at least the display is  well Saturated and has Wide viewing angles but it feels a little pixilated and I was able to find pixels at arms length and while we are here why don’t we talk about the protection aspect and there is no official word from Gionee on this front but it has a 2.5D Glass which makes the touch response a lot better..

Under the Hood:

So, while we are talking about the display why don’t we talk about what’s powering it on and So the Gionee P7 Max comes with Mediatek’s Helio x10 or (MT 6795) Octacore SoC with a maximum clockspeed of 2.2Ghz and it is a True 8 core CPU that we have come to see on many Smartphones (Ex: LeEco Le 1s) with 3GB of RAM and 32GB onboard storage which is expandable upto 128GB, and so the paper specs are decent for a sub 15k Smartphone but the Smartphone flies through anything that you throw at it and it can even handle most of the heavy 3D games with ease but the reason for that top of the line performance is not because the CPU is fast but because the P7Max has just a 720p display and  it results in a boon to the Smartphone as it doesn’t need to push many pixels and is one of the fastest Smartphone available on the market, and the best part the device doesn’t heat up, so you know it will not blow up like something.., ah huh..!


The Gionee P7 Max comes with Android 6.0 Marshmallow with Gionee’s Amigo UI on top and as is the case with any Gionee Smartphone the software experience is the same it has childish animation and icons and to be a fair the implementation is a lot like iOS and if you are a iOS user and want to switch (LOL) then you will not feel a lot difference but still the phone is fast and it doesn’t feel like lagging with a Ton of features and is fast as hell (again thanks to that 720p display)..,


With that we get to the Camera’s and for you all spec junkies the Gionee P7 Max comes with a 13MP Sensor but with f2.0 aperture with support for PDAF and 1080p 30FPS video recording capabilities and single LED flash and on the front we have a 5MP f2.2 Camera and support for 720p video support and as usual daylight pictures are sharp and vibrant and offers loads of details and is great for Sharing on Social Medias But the night shots are terrible but we don’t blame this device as it is the case with every midrange Smartphone, and the 1080p video footage is also good but it could be even better with future software updates but the focusing speeds are fast, so flipping the coin and taking a look at the Selfie side it gets the job done and will do the trick for social medias..! So at the end of the day Gionee P7 Max has an average set of Cameras my.!

Battery Life:

With that we finally come to the battery life and here is where we feel Gionee P7 Max excels as the 3100mAh Battery will get you through a couple of days if you be a little conscious about battery but if you are a Power user it will get you through the full day with ease it is because of the low resolution 720p display so the bottom line the Gionee P7 Max provides great Battery-life..,

So, what do we feel about the Gionee P7 Max in our opinion the Gionee P7 Max is a good Smartphone but the price cramps the Smartphone, as even the Redmi 3s Prime at just 9k offers a lot to the table than this Smartphone and if you want even more the Redmi Note 3 at 12k will get you even more features at a relatively less price and so for the asking price of 13999/-INR or is a no brainer to recommend this device especially in a world where Xiaomi’s midrange Smartphones exist..!

But that’s just us, what do you feel about our conclusion do you agree with what we say if not what is that you don’t agree with let us know your thoughts in the comments section below and help us out with some sharing on your favourite social media..!
