Features, Performance, and Reviews for the Gionee M12

The camera function of Gionee M12

The Gionee M12 has an ultrahigh performance 48 MP main camera. This allows you to make high-quality photos and will rarely leave you wanting with regard to camera performance. This will make using your camera fun.

The Gionee M12 is equipped with a rather powerful 16 MP front camera. The photos turn out quite well since they don't look grainy even when you print them out.

Gionee M12's size

The Gionee M12 is 3.0 inches (76.8 mm) wide, 6.5 inches (163.9 mm) tall, and 0.4 inches (9.3 mm) thick. I can just barely use it with one hand, so it may feel big to some people. In the case of the Gionee M12, it weighs about 196 oz (196 g). It feels a little heavy when held with one hand. It may tire your hand out if you operate it for too long a time.

In giving an overall rating to the Gionee M12, while it may be slightly difficult to hold, it shouldn't be much of a problem when considering its general strengths and weaknesses.

Gionee M12's screen

The Gionee M12 has a 6.55 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 M12'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 M12

The Gionee M12 has an extremely high processing power of 1.8GHz+1.5GHz×8(OctaCore), so it can smoothly run any app out there with ease. Its performance ranks among the top-class of all smartphones released to date. It's well suited to running even the most demanding of 3D games with ease.

The Gionee M12 has a very high RAM capacity at 6GB. There are few cases where the RAM capacity would be insufficient, so it is also well suited to multitasking. It's unlikely to feel slow even when switching between several different apps.

The Gionee M12 is an exceptional high-end smartphone. You will be fully content with its performance in all areas. It is a must-have for you if operation performance is important for you.

Gionee M12's storage capacity

The Gionee M12 has 128GB of data storage, which is perfect for people who frequently take photos and videos. It is suited to taking both photos and videos, and is unlikely to feel inconvenient even with lots of apps or games installed.

Since the Gionee M12 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 M12

The Gionee M12 is a high-performance smartphone. You're not likely to experience any inconvenience in general use.
