Gionee P5W Details

Gionee P5W makes its way into the Indian smartphone market with basic hardware. The device ships with an affordable price tag and is available in blue, yellow, white, black and red colours.
It is powered by a 1.3 GHz octa-core MediaTek MT6735 chipset and includes 1GB of RAM to support minimal multitasking. The device tends to lag and often slows down as is the case with most low-end devices if you work on more than two apps simultaneously over some time. Using the 16GB of internal storage one can store everything that is necessary and if that doesn't sound much there is an expansion slot that can extend the storage via a microSD card up to 32GB.
On its face, the P5W boasts a 5-inch HD display with decent viewing angles. The device produces bright nad crisp colours and the screen is legible in both indoor and outdoor conditions. There is no Gorilla Glass protection that can keep your device scratch-free.
In terms of camera, the Gionee P5W comes with a 5-megapixel rear camera paired with an LED flash that can be used to capture images and record videos. For selfies and video calling, there is a basic 2-megapixel front-facing shooter. One can also enjoy the latest Android experience as the smartphone runs Android 5.1 Lollipop out of the box.
The device ships with an array of connectivity options that help you stay connected with your near and dear ones. Connectivity options include 3G, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS and a microUSB 2.0 port that help you transfer files to and fro from your PC. Fuelled by a Li-Ion 2,000 mAh cell, the device is expected to support talk time up to 8 hours.
In addition, there is dual SIM support and the device is 8.9 mm thick and weighs a hefty 153 grams.
