Gionee A1 is also featuring as “Selfiestan has launched on 21 March 2017, It’s coupled with 4 GB ram and powered by Amigo 4.0 based on Android 7.0 OS (Nougat) operating system for the better performance. It is using octa-core as a CPU and chipped with the Helio P10 processor, which is rarely used in smartphones these days.

It comes with 5.5 inches (13.97 cm) display screen with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels covered in gorilla glass.

It has supported by 64 GB Internal memory to save loads of data, files, videos, and more with the help of 256GB External Memory.

It’s integrated with 16 MP front camera for the unstoppable selfies and 13 MP back camera to shoot high-quality videos and capturing group pictures. Both the cameras have dual flash to take brighter photos even in dim light.

Gionee a1 is using a 4010 mAh lithium-ion polymer battery, which is more than sufficient to help you talk more than 24 hours.


Well, the best part about its display is that it is using gorilla glass as a protection shield against rigid touch and solid bump. The 5.5-inch screen is in a decent look, 2.5 D curved edge makes the phone complete along with the capacitive touch button.


From its processor’s side, Helio P10 does seem to be a downfall to give better gaming support from the expert’s point of view. It has 4 GB RAM to handle massive programs, whereas it has its own Amigo 4.0, which is based on nougat software, but it is being said that Playing High-quality games won’t be easier even with the presence of the 4 GB RAM.

Pros Cons

Strong display Average back camera

better selfie camera Average processor

lots of specs Battery gets heated



Selfie Camera is good, yielding crystal clear photos which are way better than any other model of Gionee and from many Oppo’s and Vivo’s phones. But if we talk about its back camera, apart from its mega pixel’s quality, it lacks many features like you cannot record 4k video with it. However, it’s not full packed handset under 20000, but overall it has improved selfie camera, which would interest you without a doubt. So selfie lovers can grab this phone without hoping to have a better processor performance.


Polymer Battery is backed by 4010 mAh, which can provide you a more than one day of talk time and standby of more than 220 hours with the data on. You may feel heat and lag while playing games.


The phone is good having many specs compared to compatible phones, better camera quality is everything for the selfie lovers, and this phone has, a good supportive display is everything to protect a phone from the children or hard touch, and this phone has. Maybe Game freaks shouldn’t buy this phone as it may lag and stuck in between the game. Overall this phone is a great deal, and you can benefit from it.
