Another phones joins the league of these Chinese phones waiving around 10,000 and Gionee has released their smartphone for the first time in India. The hardware specifications of this smartphone matches with the other smartphones but its battery is better than others but this does not justify that why this phone has been priced higher when it has got no reputation in the Indian phone market as of now, I think the only reason may be the extra accessories which this phone is offering to the users like a scratch guard, 8GB external memory card and the phone case. Many phones with the same spec like that of Byond, Lava and others are lying under 10k range.

Users surely have lots of options now when it comes to an android with big screen on the range of 10,000 INR. This gadget is over priced little bit given that it is the first smartphone launched by this company but whenever you buy a phone you usually spend a good amount of money on their cases and screen guard and in most of the cases you do not get the appropriate cases and guards for these Chinese phones. My honest suggestion will be to look out for the best after sale service provided by these companies in your area and then choose the best as they will surely popup few problem once bought by you.
