Gionee Philippines said that they currently have the 3g-capable model so far as the LTE version will be available soon. The demo unit that you see in our pictures is having the 32 GB ROM and 3 GB RAM.


The UI is  new to us. One, you have to swipe upward to unlock the screen. On pressing and holding the home button, the running apps are in horizontal fashion. The device also has 2 camera applications, the stock camera and the Charm Cam.

We love the UI of the stock cam as there are capacitive turn dials  that you can customize. We also love one of the camera features which is the sport option which it helps when your subject is a moving object. On the pic, we took a picture of a very fast moving empty water bottle in wave motion. Based on our pic, our subject is very clear. We were not sure yet if it has optical image stabilization feature but this feature helps especially when you’re in a sports game. You want to take a pic of your favorite speedy basketball player doing a crossover.
