Hands on review: What really went wrong with the Gionee M3?

Posted by



Following the relative success of the Gionee M2, sometime around October last year, information leaked of a successor, the Gionee M3. Sporting a higher battery capacity, better display, and OTG support, already looking like a worthy upgrade in the books. See the full specifications HERE.

Six months on, and we haven’t heard anything about this device, the question is why? It apparently didn’t sell in droves like it’s predecessor the M2. Meanwhile the Gionee M3 found it’s way to Mobility Arena maybe, just maybe, a full review could tell us why this device isn’t so popular. Or is it the price?

Handling this phone, you notice the edges are rounder and smoother unlike the more squarely nature of the M2. The display here is also richer with higher resolution, the 5000 mAh battery is non-removable. Expect a full review soonest.
