The Gionee M2 is a DualSIM 1.3 GHz quad-core, Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean smartphone. It has 1 GB RAM. The display is 5 inches in size and of 480×854 pixel reolution. There is an 8 megapixel rear camera, while the front facing camera is 2 megapixel. Internal storage is 4 GB, and there is room for a microSD card.

The Amigo custom user interface is really a very lightly skinned version of Android’s default UI. You will notice the differene in the drop-down and Settings menus. Besides that, everything else looks pretty much like raw Android. The M2 supports themes though, so you can change the look and feel of wallpapers and icons.

It packs a humongous removable 4200mAh battery, which i saying something. By way of comparison, the 6-inch Lumia 1520 has a 3400mAh battery. Battery life of th M2 should be interesting.

As you can see in the above photo, the M2 supports both a micro-SIM and a mini-SIM slot. While its length and width are not out of place, it is a bit thick, to accommodate the large battery. At 144 x 72 x 10.5 mm, that thickness makes it a bit of a chunky device by modern standards:

But then, if you are after serious battery power, you should be willing to sacrifice something. Here is a comparison shot with the Huawei Honor 3C which has a thickness of 9.2 mm against the M2’s 10.5 mm:

While I have been unable to find information about its precise weight, the heft is very obvious once you pick it up.

Information available is that the M2 isn’t in the market yet, but it is expected any time from now. Expect more on the Gionee M2 in the days ahead. Feel free to ask any questions you may have.


  1. Dunno what to ask sef…except that I’d like to see how the battery plays out on the daily.
    however, the 4GB internal storage tho’..smh

  2. Yes, I would sacrifice a lot (thickness, weight ) for a device packing this kind of battery. All things being equal, the battery life should be Something Extra Special

    Apart from the Battery size, the other features are just average. But the price, if reasonable, could make it a winner..

    // however, the 4GB internal storage tho’..smh//

    If it’s actually close to the 4Gig for user apps, that’s fair enough .. the sdCard support would take care of the rest.

    After all, the Tecno Phantom A Ill that is supposed to have 16 Gig internal storage actually has less than 1Gig available for app installation..!! This being quite common with Chinese phones, it would be great if one could tell the actual internal memory that’ supports app installation.. rather than the advertised one.

  3. very enticing battery life… but still my 2011 released galaxy note 1 ALMOST beats it hands down spec wise

  4. I bought it 23k in kano, it actually comes with 8gb internal memory instead of 4gb, maybe there are two versions.

  5. Ahmad, you are not wrong, but what you have is just 4GB to use. The phone system takes up 3.77GB of the storage, leaving just 4.23GB for the user.

  6. ahmed pls can you help me ask from where you bought yours “where i can buy it in Abuja?” pls

  7. We have in stock; available for N24,000.
