Display and Camera
In spite of the “Lite” moniker, this phone still comes with a rather large 5.3-inch display. This touchscreen features an HD resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. You should get decent wide viewing angles on the Gionee A1 Lite considering it uses in-plane switching technology.
One of the main highlights of the Gionee A1 Lite is its selfie camera. This boasts an impressive resolution of 20 megapixels. Selfie enthusiasts look to be well served here – even over-served. On the rear is a more regular 13 megapixel shooter with LED flash.
Performance and OS
It appears like you can expect some decent performance from the Gionee A1 Lite. This is because it houses an octa-core MediaTek MT6753 processor. The CPU, whose speed is capped at 1.3 GHz, gets somewhat impressive support from RAM of 3GB capacity.
Now, while this won’t ensure the best of performance, the device shouldn’t do badly for the price. Gionee A1 Lite is one of the more affordable phones that offer you Android 7.0 Nougat operating system. This has Gionee’s Amigo 4.0 user interface on top.
Other Specs and Features
Another highlight of the Gionee A1 Lite is a 4,000mAh battery with offering a rated standby time of more than 12 days. You get 32 GB of onboard storage. It is not clear if you will be able to expand the storage space further.
Gionee adds a fingerprint sensor on the rear of the A1 Lite to help keep your data more secure. The smartphone is reportedly 4G LTE enabled for superfast mobile data speeds.
Gionee A1 Lite offers dual SIM feature as one would expect. Connectivity options also include micro USB, Bluetooth 4.1, and Wi-Fi. And of course, you also get GPS with A-GPS for finding your way around.
