Gionee Max Review

Highlights

  1. The phone covers the performance aspect with the Unisoc SC9863A SoC on the board.
  2. In terms of the camera, the company has a dual camera on the back with a selfie port on the front.
  3. It comes with a Li-Po 5000 mAh battery that also has additional reverse charging.
  4. Gionee Max comes with a standard size IPS LCD panel, which provides a sufficient amount of pixel density for the screen.

Design and Display

The sleek, yet elegant plastic body offers a compact texture to the phone and gives it a shiny appearance that impresses most. However, it is covered by the body of the Chucky layout which somehow increases the grip of the phone. In addition to the design, the U-shaped front screen looks completely perfect, along with the fine bezels covering the corner of the front screen. The color scheme is excellent as it conveys the beautiful color options of black, red, and royal blue to the phone.

A 6.1 inches, larger-than-average HD resolution IPS LCD panel is integrated to support a better viewing experience and generate a 720-pixel resolution.

Memory and Internal

Unlike most Gionee handsets recently launched in China, the Gionee Max is the first phone to have the Andriod 10 under the hood. It improves the interface and produces several other adjustments for a better user-centered experience over the phone. A typical octa-core processor includes four 1.6 GHz cores and the remaining half comes with 1.2 GHz. This configuration helps the processor perform its daily tasks without any problems.

In terms of hardware, the Gionee Max has a local Unisoc SC9863A chipset that transmits power to the 2 GB of RAM and receives 32 GB storage support. At the same time, expand the space with the supplied Micro SD slot.

Camera

Speaking of the camera, it comes with a dual-camera of 13 MP as the main snapper and 0.3 MP for the Bokeh portrait image. In addition, the 5 MP selfie port is good according to the quality and fit of the image. In addition, Gionee’s well-developed camera software is famous even before and after the crash. With these features, Gionee Max reaches its maximum potential limits.

Battery and others

Even without supporting fast charging, the company expands the phone’s limit by inserting a Li-Po 5000 mAh long battery-powered by a micro USB charging port.

On the other hand, there is no physical fingerprint sensor present, but the regular accelerometer and the proximity sensor are implanted with a 3.5 mm connector and speakers.
