Gionee M2017: a High-End in Almost All with a Daunting Battery

Less than a week to close this 2016 full of curiosities, news and displays with curved edges, and not yet all said. This year we have seen more or less fortunate proposals with different specifications and prices to which we are accustomed, though not absent of surprises.

Even so, Chinese manufacturer Gionee has taken le considerable value when removing your Gionee M2017, a terminal whose specifications are, mostly, from high-end, highly generous battery and a design that, well, I’ve seen socks poorly matched with more beauty than that terminal. And all this by a price that, hopefully, not feel precedents.

A different, but almost better design that had been limited to copy to other manufacturers

It is difficult to know where to start with this terminal, because if not you’ve been blind to see it already, maybe not stands the description. We will start with a back to seems to be of leather (or plastic imitating them) with seam in the middle. At the top and bottom are metal strips in golden color.

The part that wraps to the sensors, the flash and the logo also is made of the same metal and, how not, in golden color. The front part is governed by the protected by a Sapphire Crystal screen with curved edges, the same metal strips at the top and bottom and a few additional edges. At the bottom we find, in addition, flanked by other two touch buttons fingerprint sensor.

In terms of the design of the M2017 Gionee, I can’t help but compare it with other “creatures” as the Vertu and other luxury brands that they should no longer experience, is not one’s own. With this terminal is more of the same, a copy of another manufacturer would have been better. Of course, there will be like who, I almost let me blind.

Specifications with many lights and a shadow

Already with the design back section, we will focus on specifications that most are high-end. We start off with the only element that is not, your processor, and we speak of a Snapdragon 653, an Octa-Core 1, 95GH Cortex-A72 in its four most powerful and 1.44 GHz Cortex-A53 in the less powerful. Its GPU is the Adreno 510.

This processor is accompanied by a generous 6 GB RAM and a storage ranging from 128 GB to 256 GB which can not be extended. Gionee M2017 screen is of 5.7 inch, with technology AMOLED and has resolution QHD, that leaves me with little doubt if the processor can paand ader the best conditions.

What if surrender will be your battery, with a 7,000 mAh You seem more worthy of a tablet than a Smartphone. To improve the thing, you can make use of the fast charge technology Quick Charge 3.0 Qualcomm. As for their cameras, it has two 12 MP and 13 MP back sensors and one of 8 MP front.

We ended with the part of software, where it brings Android 6.0 with its own interface, Friend OS version 3.5. No doubt the specifications section is much more satisfying than the design, although it is best not to declare victory yet.

The first thing you need to know is that the terminal, at least for now, can only prepedirlo in China, and if you want to get with him, in his version of leather or skin (or imitation), you will have to pay a price equivalent to a $1,000. But if you spare yourself the money, there is an exclusive version of alligator for a few 2,446 dollars, all a bargain if it touched the Christmas Gordo.
