Created date: 11/18/2018, 11:23:57, Updated date: 04/15/2020, 16:00:31

An examination of the advantages and disadvantages of the specs and capabilities of the Gionee X1. How highly does it rate in terms of accessibility and performance in comparison with other smartphone? We reviewed the Gionee X1 to see if it was a good buy.

Features, Performance, and Reviews for the Gionee X1

Gionee X1's size

The Gionee X1 is 2.8inches (72.2mm) wide, 5.7inches (144.3mm) tall, and 0.3inches (8.8mm) 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 X1, while it may be slightly difficult to hold, it shouldn't be much of a problem when considering its general strengths and weaknesses.

The CPU performance of Gionee X1

The Gionee X1 has a run-of-the-mill processing power of 1.3GHz×4(Quad core), so while you'll be able to play 2D games with ease, it's a little lacking for 3D games. Outside of games, the phone runs most things quite smoothly, but certain apps can cause a bit of slowdown.

The Gionee X1 has 2GB 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 X1 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 X1's storage capacity

The Gionee X1 has 16GB 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 X1 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.

Gionee X1's screen

The Gionee X1 has a 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 resolution of the Gionee X1'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 camera function of Gionee X1

The main camera of the Gionee X1 has a capacity of 8 MP pixels, and is adequate for normal use. But some users may feel dissatisfied with the picture quality.

The Gionee X1 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 X1

The Gionee X1 has a relatively large battery with 3000mAh. The Gionee X1 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.

Overall assessment of Gionee X1

The Gionee X1 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.
