Gionee P8 Max review

Created date: 11/18/2018, 11:23:51, Updated date: 04/15/2020, 20:31:49

We've conducted a detailed review of the Gionee P8 Max, looking into its battery, how easy it is to use the camera, and whether the CPU performance is high or low. Not only that, but we've also evaluated how portable and easy to hold it is, as well as how nice the display is.

Features, Performance, and Reviews for the Gionee P8 Max

The camera function of Gionee P8 Max

The Gionee P8 Max has a 13 MP main camera that lets you take photos and videos in a quite high resolution. You may be a little dissatisfied with it in some situations, for example when you want to capture scenery in very high resolution or print out beautiful photos, but this should not be an issue you run into very often.

The Gionee P8 Max comes with a 8 MP pixel camera, which is a standard level. It's perfectly fine for selfies, but may be not as satisfying if you wish to take photos of large numbers of people, or make printouts.

The battery performance of Gionee P8 Max

The Gionee P8 Max has a relatively large battery with 3150mAh. The Gionee P8 Max has a good battery life compared to other smartphones. You won't feel stressed even if you spend all day surfing the web or on Twitter and you can also watch videos or play games on the go without having to worry too much about the battery. If you watch videos or play games for too long, however, you might want to watch your battery a bit.

Gionee P8 Max's size

The Gionee P8 Max is 3.0inches (76.6mm) wide, 6.1inches (154.4mm) tall, and 0.4inches (9.2mm) thick. I can just barely use it with one hand, so it may feel big to some people.

In giving an overall rating to the Gionee P8 Max, while it may be slightly difficult to hold, it shouldn't be much of a problem when considering its general strengths and weaknesses.

Gionee P8 Max's screen

The Gionee P8 Max has a 5.5 inch screen. The smartphone has a large, impressive screen, which allows you to enjoy photos and videos to the fullest. It is also very good for writing business documents and doing other work.

The resolution of the Gionee P8 Max's screen is pretty much standard. It shouldn't be a problem for normal use, but it might prove to be a bit dissatisfying for those who wish to better enjoy their photos, videos, or games.

The CPU performance of Gionee P8 Max

The processing power of the Gionee P8 Max is, at 1.5GHz×4(Quad core), relatively high. Its features would position it somewhere between high and mid-level among currently available smartphones, but it will be rather stress-free in terms of using most apps. Most 3D games that don't burn up too much memory should be playable to a satisfying degree for the most part. 2D games should be no problem at all.

The Gionee P8 Max has 3GB of RAM, so it has plenty of space. In rare cases this amount of RAM might not be sufficient, but there shouldn't be too much stress on the machine with this amount.

The overall operational speed of the Gionee P8 Max rates as a mid-range smartphone. While you will probably not experience much sluggishness or lag with normal use, we recommend a phone at least one tier higher if you want to enjoy games or videos.

Gionee P8 Max's storage capacity

The Gionee P8 Max has 32GB of data storage, which is plenty for taking photos, but for people who frequently shoot videos or have lots of games installed, this may not feel like enough space.

Since the Gionee P8 Max 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 P8 Max

The Gionee P8 Max is a relatively high-performance smartphone. If you plan to use it as your main smartphone, you may find it slightly inconvenient, but within tolerable limits.
