Gionee P8 Max Summary and Introduction

Gionee P8 Max is not all that a worthy successor to the previous P7 Max from Gionee, although coming with a very similar spec write-up, the P8 Max was defective in areas we expected improvement or nothing less.

The device maintained the same design pattern in the series and a large RAM space for a decent phone performance, fingerprint scanner is absent as widely expected. That not withstanding below are key specs of the Gionee P8 Max.

Offering somewhat impressive RAM, the Gionee P8 Max is a device for people interested in decent performance at a friendly price. Gionee P8 Max features a large HD display, a quad-core processor, and Android Marshmallow OS. Gionee P8 Max boasts premium and impressive features starting from its camera, performance configurations, battery and display which can serve well when on the run.

Gionee P7 Max is Probably the first phone that comes to mind when you think of a good alternative, it has better processor that its later counterpart. Infinix S2 Pro should also be thrown into the mix, Tecno Camon CX on the other hand is not a bad alternative to look out for.
