Price wise, we don’t feel that Gionee is offering any advantage to the user over its competitors. In the similar price range, you can easily get Android smartphones with octa-core processors and full HD 1080p displays. You can get similar or better products at a lower price than that of Gionee GPad G5 such as Asus Zenfone 5, Xiaomi Redmi 1S and Karbonn Titanium Octane Plus but Gionee has a better reach in conventional brick and mortar retail stores which can result in better sales in comparison.
