Design & Display
The Gionee P8M comes with a 5-inch display which is kind of the standard screen size for smartphones in its category. It is made with the IPS On-Cell display technology which offers decent display vibrancy at a moderate power-consuming rate. It also has an HD (720 * 1280) pixel resolution, resulting in a pixel density of about 264 PPI. This promises a reasonable measure of display quality and colour reproduction, though much shouldn’t be expected as it is a budget device.
The P8M’s build is plastic but is designed in such a way that it’s still distinguishable from very low-end entry-level devices in the market. It has a metal aluminium frame which gives it a sleek feel when held in the hands, and its curved edges ensures better grip.
This smartphone uses capacitive buttons for navigation, making good use of its huge bottom bezel. It weighs in at 166 grammes, which is reasonable considering it has a large battery capacity.
Memory & Performance
The Gionee P8M is powered under the hood by a MediaTek MT6580 processor which uses four cores and operates at a maximum speed of 1.3GHz. The processor has 1GB of RAM to carry out its operations, and is assisted by a Mali-400 MP2 GPU in rendering graphics on the phone.
The smartphone comes with 8GB of internal storage for installation of apps and file keeping. The user actually has less than this to use, and most times, the storage space won’t be enough for storage , so there’s an option to expand the default internal storage up to 128GB via a microSD card.
The Gionee P8M offers basic photography functions, sporting a 5MP camera with autofocus and a LED flash at the rear, and a 2MP camera upfront for taking selfies.
Battery, Connectivity & Software
The Gionee P8M packs a 4000mAh Li-Po battery which offers 30 days of standby and 30 hours of talk time, as claimed by the company. The phone supports USB OTG which allows you to transfer some of the extra power to other devices via reverse charging. We’re not sure if the device comes with fast charging, though, but it’s unlikely as it’s a budget smartphone.
The P8M can take in two micro-SIM cards, but the maximum network connection speed accessible is 3G as it has no support for 4G LTE. It boots Android 7.0 Nougat, and Gionee has layered version 4.0 of its custom Amigo OS on top of the default software platform on the phone.
