OUR VERDICT

At a price of Rs. 19,999, the Gionee A1 can be considered as a good overall smartphone that is ready to take on the competition in offline space. The phone comes with two good quality cameras, especially the front 16-megapixel selfie camera. Also, the big 4010mAh battery doesn’t disappoint at all.

About the performance, the phone does work well with moderate multitasking but then heavy duty tasks will be an issue. Having said that consumers get 4GB RAM with 64GB of internal storage along with execllent battery and good cameras. If Gionee goes aggressive with A1 in offline retail market then this phone could be a Champion device for them.
