    It cool for that price, I even prefer the Gionee M5 to the Infinix Hot 2 which almost similar specs.

  2. Covenant Oyetade says:

    This phone’s got everything I need. Especially, the reverse and OTG whatever, so cool ?! I just hope when it finally gets here, price won’t put it far away from many people’s grasp.
    Buy then, I should get it the best price from Yudala when they kickstart their “Mobile Monday” from next month. All I just need do now is to start saving money.

  3. JDY says:

    That price range is just too much,28-35K should be ok

  4. jamila filani says:

    the phone specification is great for a mini gionee phone..

  5. YEMI says:

  6. Titi says:

    hmmm strong competition for infinix and co

  7. lanre says:

  8. Kaybang says:

    Thumbs up 4 Gionee… The thing i love most about Gionee’s product is there camera and ba3 life…

  10. KingAbsolute says:

    I think the M5 is preferable to this, N30000 – N40000? All still expensive, better to go for the best i.e. M5

  11. Love says:

    definitely too expensive. why in this day and age would Gionee design a phone that should be 4g LTE with just MT6580? Which for every one’s information is just a 32 bit processor. Not commendable at all. When even iocean and some other Chineese manufacturers have been designing 4gLTE phones with 64bit processors( 6752). So much for all the hype. Really disapointing. In light of all this the Gionee M5 should be priced between 28-30k. Anything more would be Exploiting the Nigerian market.

    1. lanre says:

      It is priced at N29 mama.

    2. Titi says:

      In actual truth, who uses 4g lte in nigeria. In my opinion pending the time we get a 4g lte service, that feature is gimmicky because it is useless. But i totally get your point

  12. love says:

    like i said any 4G LTE phone that comes with a 32bit procesor is not worth it. In places like Abuja and lagos you have the likes of spectranet, smile and even glo offering 4G LTE. And with the way things are going in this country , in the next few years, 4G LTE will be obtainable in every part of the country. what then? Infact at this very moment smile has manufactured a 4G sim card that only works on phones designed for 4G services. so anyone who thinks the 4G offered by some manufacturers is a gimmick is terribly midguided. 4G is where this country is headed in the next few years. my problrm with this phone is the very low processor that it comes with. 28k is a good price in my opinion.

  13. Kate Ola says:

    Thanks for. The specs are cool, although i will always prefer Gionee M5 to the Infinix Hot 2.

  14. pele says:

    I just got one with a removable battery! Could it be counterfeit?
