Gionee India has rolled out Android 5.0 lollipop update for Gionee CTRL V4S smartphone. Now if you are using the V4S handset and are already thinking about checking the system update online, hold on – this is a non-OTA update i.e. you will need to visit the service centre to get the update done.

Also since Gionee has just announced the update, it would be better to call the service center and confirm if they have the update available, instead of directly visiting the centre and enlightening the guys that there is an update available.

Gionee CTRL V4S with Android 5.0 comes packed with a lot of features. And yes it will be running the Amigo UI. Answer call interface got a new look and also supports pop-up call. You can access the control center by sliding from bottom to top. Users will be able to control the notifications, manage it.
