[…] the company did not disclose the pricing of the phone at the launch event, but some rumours were stating that the phone will cost Rs. 21,999 in India. Moreover, the Gionee A1 has rivals in the form of Oppo F1s, Vivo V5, and Vivo V5 Plus. The Vivo V5 […]


My opinion : Samsung A9 pro 2016 and Sony M5 are far more better than the above worst class company gionee.

A9 pro 2016 : OIS for rear camera, large battery capacity than the worst class gionee

Sony M5 : has auto focus for the front camera

Samsung On8, C7 pro, C5 pro can also be considered better models than the worst gionee.


HTC desire 10 pro also has auto focus for the front camera.
the Xperia m5 was an amazing camera phone unsurpassed by all except the phones released late 2016.


I will buy Lenovo P2+Honor 6X instead of going for Samsung A9 pro…. Stop repeating same things again and again


I have mentioned other models also. Better get out from here.
