Gionee M7 Power Launched in India With 5000 mAH Battery, SD 435

Gionee has launched the new long battery life mobile in India called “Gionee M7 Power”. The new Gionee M7 power will go on sale starting 25 November through online stores as well as offline retail channels.

Amazon India is the online partner for the brand and will start the pre-booking from 17th November 2017. The Gionee M7 Power will be available in three colors – blue, black, gold.

The mobile is priced at Rs. 16,999 and competes with the Xiaomi Mi Max 2, Oppo F5 and the Huawei Honor 9i in the 15k to 20k price range.

Gionee is also offering one-time screen replacement with the device for the first six months. Additionally, buyers can also get additional 10 GB data/month for 10 months, from JIO if they recharge with 309 or above.

Build and Display

Like most Gionee phones the M7 Power also comes with a premium build with metallic design. The rear surface is glossy and reflects light from different angles, something similar to the Huawei Honor 8.

The mobile is thick and measures 8.6 mm and also weighs 199 grams because of its large battery capacity.

The mobile comes with a large 6.00 Inch Univisium display and has HD + (1440*720) resolution. The display is also protected by the Corning Gorilla Glass 3.

I would have liked Gionee to add at least a Full HD Display in this price range, an HD display is not what most buyers would like.

The display has 18:9 aspect ratio similar to the LG V30 or the upcoming OnePlus 5T.

Gionee M7 Power

This is the first Gionee smartphone to come with a bezel-less display. The Gionee M7 was launched in China in September 2017 and now is brought to India.

The near Bezel-less display smartphones are a new rage and all the smartphone makers are launching bezel-less display smartphones. Micromax recently launched the Micromax Canvas Infinity, LG launched the Q6, Vivo came up with the Vivo V7+.

With other hardware specs seeing a kind of saturation currently, we are seeing more and more bezel-less Full vision display phones even in the mid-range segment.

Battery Life

The Gionee M7 Power is the successor to the Gionee M6 or the M6 Plus which were launched last year with 5000 and 6000 mAH capacity battery.  The Gionee M7 Power comes with a 5000 mAH battery and also comes with the Fast Charging support.

You can easily use the M7 Power for at least 1.5 to 2 days with high amount of usage and still may not exhaust it.

Software

The smartphone runs on the Android Nougat 7.1 and also has the Gionee Custom Amigo UI 5.1 on top of it. We recently reviewed the Gionee A1 (selfie phone) and found the Amigo UI to be very neat and clean and not as heavily modded as the MIUI or the Cool UI.

Performance

The mobile comes with the Octa-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 processor clocked at 1.4 GHz and the Adreno 505 GPU. The Snapdragon 435 is used in many phones like Nokia 6 or the more affordable Redmi 4. The processor is not a real powerhouse, ideally, in this price range, a Snapdragon 625 or Snapdragon 630 is desired.

The M7 Power comes with 64 GB of internal storage space which can be expanded to 256 GB using the micro-sd card slot. The phone has got 4 GB of ram to ensure smooth multitasking.

Camera

The M7 Power comes with a 13 Megapixel camera with f/2.0 aperture along with LED Flash.  At the front, the Gionee M7 sports an 8-megapixel resolution selfie camera which comes with f/2.2 aperture.

Connectivity

The Gionee M7 comes with Dual Sim 4G Volte support and also has a Fingerprint scanner at the back of the device.

Key Features Gionee M7 Power

  1. Great Battery Life – 5000 mAH capacity Battery with Fast Charging.
  2. Bezel-less Display with 6.0 Inch Screen.

Major Cons

  1. Lacks Dual Rear Camera.
  2. The display is only HD.
  3. Weak Processor.
  4. Overpriced.

Gionee has been struggling in the Indian market as a brand and they need some good smartphones which can take on Xiaomi, Oppo, and Vivo to retain and expand their market share.

While Xiaomi has been very aggressive in pricing, Gionee is still offering phones with mediocre hardware at a high price, which is unlikely to help them improve the market position. Let’s see how the Gionee M7 Power does in this hyper-competitive mobile market.
