The Gionee P8M is an economical smartphone for those who want a long autonomy. It has a large battery, a 5-inch screen, a quad-core processor and Android nougat operating system.
Design and display
From the point of view of things, the Gionee P8M seems to have a plastic body to reflect its budget status. But that does not mean it’s a shabby device. He looks really good with his curved corners. But about 9.2 mm means it’s not a slim device.
The Gionee P8M features a 5-inch IPS cell display with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. Well, that should provide decent pictures and colors.

Gionee P8M Camera and memory
If you still have doubts about what Gionee P8M offers in its camera department, it confirms its budget status. The primary shooter has 5 megapixels while the snapper selfie only has 2 megapixels. Of course, you can not expect many things in terms of image quality.
The storage capacity is only 8 GB. But the report is that you can add another 128 GB with a microSD card.
Performance and operating system
With a MediaTek MT6580 processor with four cores inside, the Gionee P8M will only provide the power needed. The chip is backed by a meager 1GB of RAM. This is obviously not for power users.
The Gionee P8M comes with Android 7.0 Nougat software. The manufacturer covers the Google operating system with its own Amigo 4.0 skin.
Other specifications and features
The main feature of this smartphone must be its Li-Po 4000 mAh battery. You get a promise of 30 hours of conversation about it. The Gionee P8M’s wait time is more than a month – you wonder how realistic this will be. The device offers “Super Power Saving”. However, it is unclear if there is support for fast loading.
You can use two micro SIM cards simultaneously on the Gionee P8M. But the best mobile connection available is 3G HSDPA, not 4G LTE. Other connectivity features include WLAN (2.4 GHz) and Bluetooth 4.2. There is also support for USB On-The-Go (OTG).
