  • Primary camera of  device can shoot the pretty decent picture in proper lighting conditions which are pretty okay for the casual user to use this device.
  • Its display has 5.0 inch HD on cell IPS, which is quite good in this budget category.
  • One thing which every user wants in the device is Dual Sims support that Gionee P5w supports, which is a good thing in the device.
  •  If I talk about it has decent battery backup which is useful for heavy users but not for hardcore users.
  • This device supports 3G connection which in this generation wants in every Smartphone when they purchase.
  • Design of the phone looks quite decent enough with unibody design which is quite attractive to look and it’s stylish looking.
  • It also has good music sound support with DTS sound that gives  listener to listen to music with clear sound within device.
  • It has a decent quad-core processor for multi-tasking which every user wishes in their Smartphone device and can do multi-tasking on their device.

Cons of Gionee P5w

If there is a good thing about this device but there is always some bad thing about this device that it lacks 4G LTE support on the device that will give disadvantage for a user who wants to use faster internet to download and upload videos or images. This device does not provide good quality of picture with front camera as it gives average quality of pictures for selfie, which means it’s no good for the users who love clicking selfie with a front camera. And battery backup is not that up to  mark.
