Following anticipations and speculations, the new phone from Gionee was officially unveiled in Nigeria this week. On the various mini stages, the P5 mini in all its colours elicited sparkles of admiration. All wanted a feel of the sleek paragon of technology and beauty. After the first moments and some demo, it is a little tricky to hold onto the first impression that the consumer encountered when he meets this latest model from Gionee. It is a feeling that is somewhere in between surprise, excitement and satisfaction.
It is not just the way it looks but the way it feels. The P5 mini is conspicuously bright and showy but it does not assert itself all at once as if it considers the perception of our senses. The Gionee P5 mini does a damn good job of “showing itself” very gradually. Dimensioned between a statistics of 132 by 66 by 9.1mm, the phone is a plethora of aesthetics and features that make it bigger than it looks. Its high tech (IPS) in plane switching (LCD) liquid crystal display presents a vantage perspective from which the phone is experienced, from the screen saver to the games and everything in-between. With 5MP, the camera is super smart and the picture quality is enhanced by autofocus LED flash. Its selfie has an inbuilt auto face beauty.
The Gionee P5 mini lets you create mood cards that express your moments and give you an opportunity to show the world. It lets you select colours from the front and rear camera to be displayed on your screen to simulate the chameleon mystic and it adds the flavour of sight and movement to your audio music experience. The P5 mini allows you to multitask. It cascades its windows in the novel, one window rolls into the other in an unending loop of fun and function. With smart battery management, you can always be in power. The phone also comes with an extreme mode set where battery consumption stays close to a standstill, leaving just the vitals of calls, messages, calls and contacts. The Gionee P5 mini is not a small phone, it just fits. Its smooth and slightly curved screen protrudes seamlessly from the metal cover design – it fits into your hold, fits into your pockets, and fits into your lifestyle
