Gionee A1 Plus Summary and Introduction

With its large display and superior sound quality, the Gionee A1 Plus is a smartphone made for media consumers on-the-go and will definitely attract them. While the phone offers a great battery life, its size and weight might disappoint those who prefer carrying a handy phone.

Dual camera on smartphones is one of the most common trend we’ve seen in 2017. Whether its from Chinese brands like Xiaomi, OnePlus, Oppo or old guns like Apple and Samsung. However, this setup may vary in terms of rear and front camera. There is also a sufficient increase in the demand of big battery phones as mobile phones are not just used for calling these days but are full-fledged media devices. To fill in the spot with a big battery and dual camera setup, Gionee launched the A1 Plus in the market. It is the successor to the Gionee A1 which was launched early in 2017 targeting selfie obsessed consumers.

The A1 and A1 Plus battery capacity is a proof that Gionee isn’t deviating from it’s legacy of creating durable smartphones with long lasting battery life anytime soon.

The A1 is powered by a 4,010 mAh power pack while the A1 Plus has a bigger (only 540 mAh more though) and more powerful 4,550 mAh battery juice (only 540 mAh more than the A1 though). Gionee also incorporated ultra-fast charging technology into the A1 and A1 Plus smartphone.

Design

The Gionee A1 Plus is a big phone. Believe me when I say this, it’s huge. It boasts of a 6-inch full HD display protected by 2.5D curved glass on the front with a metal back. The back has a smooth matte finish making the phone slippery in hand, so it’s wise to use it with a case. The phone is quiet bulky at 226g, which I found was difficult to use especially while calling, as I had to keep on switching it between my hands for holding it on long calls. The rounded edges give a smooth finish to the phone which also helps in gripping it tightly but one handed usage is not a thing here.

Display

On the A1, a 13 MP shooter was neatly placed on the rear of the device. A rather impressive 16 MP selfie camera sits comfortably beside the earpiece on the front too.

In contrast, the A1 Plus rocks a dual camera set up at the back. The set up is made of a 13 MP and a 5 MP shooter combo. On the front however, a 20 MP with LED flash exist. The 20MP selfie shooter can capture bright, natural looking selfies in almost any kind of lighting – low, mid and high.

Performance

Both the Gionee A1 and A1 Plus comes out of the box with 4 GB of RAM, 64 GB of internal storage and microSD cards slot for storage expansion – up to 256GB. They also run the latest Android 7 .0 Nougat in conjunction with Gionee’s Amigo 4.0 UI.
