Created date: 09/30/2018, 12:36:01, Updated date: 04/16/2020, 06:32:48

What are the strengths of the Gionee Pioneer P4? We explain its advantages and disadvantages when compared to other smartphone. Even if you are not used to choosing between different smartphone, you'll learn to make the decision of whether or not the Gionee Pioneer P4 is right for you.

Features, Performance, and Reviews for the Gionee Pioneer P4

The camera function of Gionee Pioneer P4

The performance of the Gionee Pioneer P4's main camera is rather low with only 5 MP pixels. If you take a lot of pictures, then you'll likely be dissatisfied with what this camera has to offer.

The Gionee Pioneer P4 comes equipped with a 2 MP pixel front-facing camera, which is very low resolution. If you aren't particular about your videos or photos, it might be fine, but otherwise, we recommend a smartphone at least one tier higher.

The battery performance of Gionee Pioneer P4

The Gionee Pioneer P4's battery capacity is 1800 mAh, a standard level for these types of phones. Compared to other smartphones, the Gionee Pioneer P4 has a standard battery life. It should not be a problem for normal use. However, if you spend a lot of time online or playing games, you may find the battery life a bit dissatisfying.

Gionee Pioneer P4's size

The Gionee Pioneer P4 is 2.6 inches (66.5 mm) wide, 5.3 inches (135 mm) tall, and 0.4 inches (9.1 mm) thick. At this size, a man with large hands would be able to operate it comfortably with one hand, but it may feel a bit large for a woman with small hands. In the case of the Gionee Pioneer P4, it weighs about 88.2 oz (88.2 g). The weight of this phone is such that you'll barely notice it at all even when using one-handed. As such, you shouldn't have any problems using it even for long periods of time.

Both the size and weight of the Gionee Pioneer P4 make it easy to hold in your hand and are unlikely to cause any trouble when you use it normally.

Gionee Pioneer P4's screen

The Gionee Pioneer P4 has a 4.5 inch screen. The iPhone X has a big screen, which very likely won't ever trouble you. Just be aware that it's not a very good size for writing long blocks of text.

The screen quality of the Gionee Pioneer P4 is such that images and videos can occasionally be somewhat blurry. For general usage however, it's largely not a problem.

The CPU performance of Gionee Pioneer P4

The processing power of the Gionee Pioneer P4 is comparatively low at 1.3GHz×4(Quad core). You'll most likely notice its lack of power when running games or playing videos. However, you shouldn't have any problems making calls, browsing the internet or using apps like Twitter or Instagram.

The Gionee Pioneer P4 only has 1GB of RAM, which is fairly low. The RAM is regularly insufficient, so operation gets unstable and jerky even when using apps that are not resource intensive.

In rating the Gionee Pioneer P4's overall operational speed, it ranks at the low end of smartphones. It will lag and feel sluggish even during normal use. In most cases, users will feel the performance to be lacking.

Gionee Pioneer P4's storage capacity

The Gionee Pioneer P4 has 8GB of data storage. This is fine if you mainly use email or social media sites, but if you plan to take photos and videos or play games, you should buy an upgrade.

Since the Gionee Pioneer P4 is compatible with SD cards, you'll be able to easily expand your storage capacity; you won't need to worry about how much internal space it has.

Overall assessment of Gionee Pioneer P4

The Gionee Pioneer P4's performance level is that of a budget smartphone. It's a bit too weak to use as a main smartphone, so if possible you should consider something slightly more powerful. However, it should be sufficient for people that only want to use the most basic functions, like making calls and browsing the internet, and for people that don't really use smartphones much.

The merits and demerits of Gionee Pioneer P4

The merits of Gionee Pioneer P4

  • It's easy to hold and you can even comfortably use it with one hand.
  • Its light and quite easy to hold.

The demerits of Gionee Pioneer P4

  • The CPU performance is not very good, and will become operationally sluggish when using apps.
  • The back camera is quite low-spec, so its not really suited for taking pictures to upload to social media.
  • The rear-facing camera is very low resolution, so you should not think of using this smartphone as your main camera.
