In the form of the Gionee Pioneer P2S, we have yet another affordable smartphone out in the Indian market right now, with its price set at Rs 6,499. Compared to others in its class however, it comes across as quite a weak device if its specifications sheet is to be looked at.
Gionee has equipped the smartphone with a 4-inch display that offers its visuals in a WVGA resolution of 800 x 480 pixels. It is a dual SIM handset and it runs the Android 4.2 Jelly Bean OS in all its outdated glory. Its RAM is kept locked at 512MB which is yet another downside considering that other sub-Rs 7,000 phones are offering 1GB modules nowadays. These include the Moto E, the Micromax Unite 2 and the Lava Iris X1.
The Pioneer P2S carries out its operations through its 1.3GHz dual core processor. For imaging and video-capturing purposes, it houses on its rear surface a 5MP main snapper. Moreover, there’s a 0.3MP front camera present on this Gionee phone as well. The device houses a 1600mAh battery that’s capable of keeping it going for 9 hours of 3G talktime.
