Gionee A1 Lite: Boon or Doom?

Written by Albert Headley

Selfie nowadays has become one of the integral parts of our everyday life. There are multiple smart phones meeting this requirement manufactured by renowned companies. Gionee A1 Lite is among such product which has been launched worldwide with the chief focus on the front camera for taking your beautiful selfies. It is loaded with 20 MP front camera and 13 MP at the back. But is it worth to spend your hard earned money on this? We spend some time and found out what we think after using it.

The Design

It comes with a full metal body which is bit more similar to its previous model Gionee A1.

The right side of the phone has volume keys and power button while the left side has a slot for a dual sim card which you have to use as a micro SD card slot also. So there is only one slot for both the functions.

The charging and the headphone point are at the bottom.

The rear end camera comes with a finger print sensor which can be an added advantage in case of security.

It has a display of 5.3 inch HD LCD covered with a gorilla glass. Slim and light weight design makes it very easy to carry.

Performance and Camera

Gionee A1 Lite runs on android 7.0 Nougat with Amigo UI 4.0 layered on top. You can get a full page screenshot which can be pretty useful to you sometimes.

It also does not contain too many bloatware and also you can delete the pre loaded apps if you want to.

In case of gaming, if you want to play games like subway surfer, temple run or candy crush it’s very fast. But whenever you try to play high configured games like WWE, Immortals or Injustice the device starts getting heating up and the began to get hang up.

The best part about this phone is power bank 4000 mAh battery that will last for an entire day.

Now coming to the camera, it has nothing new to offer which we haven’t already seen in other phones. The image taken with both the front and rear end camera appears to be same as you will expect with the phone with 10,000 price.

Final Review

So does Gionee A1 Lite delivering what they are promising in their adverts? Actually not. The images taken were shaky and appeared to be blurry. With 14,999 as a cost label, Gionee really need to upgrade their image sensor along with 20 MP camera. Also the processor is too slow. Phone’s battery is definitely a benefit but the heating problem also shades down this advantage. There are other big brands who are offering better products in the same price range giving a tough competition to Gionee.
