Gionee has brought the Pioneer P5 Mini to India, more than two weeks after the handset had first hit the Nigerian market. It seems to be the same phone all-in-all, with a few minor differences.
The main attraction of the Gionee Pioneer P5 Mini is its colorful shells, available in 6 different shades comprising blue, gold, yellow, white, black and red. This aspect is something it has in common with its previous variant which was also offered in a wide variety of colors. Notably, the new device is a downgraded version of its predecessor and as such comes with a cheaper Rs 5349 price tag.
For that much, users can take advantage of a Face Unlock feature to open the Gionee phone and DTS sound technology for enhanced audio output. The handset’s 4.5-inch IPS Oncell screen offers a FWVGA (480 x 854p) resolution and is protected by Asahi Glass. In terms of memory, it packs 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal room.
Only 2.7GB out of this 8GB is available to buyers of the dual-SIM Pioneer P5 Mini. They’ll likely have to buy a separate microSD card for their storage requirements. As for its battery capabilities, the smartphone gets its juice from a 1850mAh battery which is supposed to last for 277 hours of standby time and 18.5 hours of 2G talk time.
