Gionee Announces Software Updates for Popular Devices

Gionee has announced another round of software updates for all major Gionee devices. The Chinese manufacturer received a lot of flak for delaying KitKat update for flagship phone Gionee Elife E7. Delayed updates are still better than hastily doled out updates with bugs and stability issue which crash your device.


The next round of updates will bring bug fixes and other features to the Gionee ELIFE E7, GPAD G5 and CTRL V6L. All of these updates are OTA updates, which means you won’t have to follow any garbled instruction or flash anything yourself.

For Gionee Elife E7 and CTRL V6L update will mostly bring bug fixes and better stability, while GPAD G5 will get pre-installed application updates, more fonts, lock screen widget and better notification management.
