Gionee GPad G2 5.3 inch quad core with Jelly Bean announced

Gionee GPad G2 is another quad core handset launched by Gionee in India. The quad core G2 is an upgraded version of its predecessor the dual core Gionee GPad G1. The handset sports a 5.3 inch screen with quad core processor running on Jelly Bean 4.1.1 OS.

The GPad G1 is priced at approx Rs. 10,490. The price details of GPad G2 have not yet been disclosed by taking clue from the specifications it could be priced at under Rs. 15,000. The Gionee GPad G2 sports a 5.3 inch screen with 960×540 pixels resolution. It is powered by MT6589 quad core processor @ 1.2GHz with PowerVR SGX 544 GPU. The handset runs on the Android 4.1.1 OS with 1GB RAM and 16GB storage.

The qHD resolution is disappointing I would have expected more, however the 16GB storage is pretty good. There is an 8MP rear camera with LED flash and front 2MP camera. The camera I believe can record in full HD resolution.

Other features included are 3G, Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, micro USB and 3.5mm audio jack. A 3000 mAh battery powers up the G2 handset. The handset will be available in two colors and will hit the markets in May 2013. Stay tuned for more on the G2.

  2. Nikhil Chitre says

    Pl. Gogi Ji, try and get this gpad2 for review as this is the only one which will come with DTS Sound technology. none other phone in this price range has this + 3000mah battery. Pl. Sir its a request because many are waiting for your review before buying.

    • Gogi Rana says

      Nikhil, Ginoee have told they will send but, they send the same review handset to many reviewers (reviewer gets, does the review then the handset is sent to another) and hence it takes a lot of time.

  3. Deepak Navangule says

    Hi Gogi,

    Is it confirmed that you are going to get the ZP 980 review piece? Is it expected this week to reach your doorsteps? I am really interested in it. Just a little worried about the 2000 mAH battery backup. I hope you will cover the Battery backup issue in detail while reviewing.
    Please confirm if you are going to get it this week so that I can wait.
    Thanks in advance………

      Hi Deepak,
      I posted response to your earlier query regarding Zopo on Spice pinnacle article.However as site was experiencing problems at that point it was missed somehow.
      Below is my experience of Zopo:
      I received my ZP 950 after 10 days of payment transfer.
      Build quality:
      I was very excited as i read that built quality of zopo is great.however it was not true in my case.
      1)Volume button came out in second day of usage,power button was shaky too(There was this bug with first lot of ZP 950).
      2)Auto brightness does not work on any Zopo device.personally tested on 5 devices.
      3)There was issue with my battery too it took 7 hours to get fully charged and would discharge in 12 hours.
      After exchange of series of mails and telephonic discussions ranging from China to Delhi it was decided that my device will be replaced.However due to chinese new year and subsequent holidays it was stockout.Stock did arrive in March end but i decided to visit their office personally as i belong to Delhi and keep visiting frequently.
      Zopo Nehru place office is not more then 100-125 sq ft with staff of 3 persons.They still dont have a single service centre till date.They are officilly in India since 20/11/2012.
      If your device has a snag either it will be replaced or will be sent to China for repairs.Yes China and their products are not dirt cheap.
      So its my personal advcie to refrain yoursely from Zopo.I know u r a tech enthusiast and i also bought MMX A100 based on your hands on review.
      Zopo’s devices may be good with some minor snags but if God forbid anything goes wrong remember u do not have service experience has been horrifying so i think its my duty to keep everyone informed.Let me know if you have any other query.

      PS:Where are androidguruz stores πŸ˜‰

        Dear Gaurav,
        Thanks for your advice, Infact few days before i had put few lines on the blog about this china made phones like Wammy(Weakdeals),if anything happens with the phone we then we have to waste time and some money and meanwhile you need to arrange standby phone,also after some time you can not exchange this phone if you go in market or with the principal company,so better people avoid to use this unknown china brand and better to go with Micromax,Karbonn or samsung where at-least you can get some value of your money.

      • Deepak Navangule says

        Hi Gaurav,
        Thanks a lot for sharing your experience with ZOPO. I really appreciate your efforts to aware the people interested in ZOPO about their so called quality & service. I am cutting down ZP 980 from my list after reading this.
        Looking towards your views, perhaps I may stay away from these Chinese Brands like UMI, ZOPO, etc. I will definitely give some plus marks to GIONEE here. They have opened service centers in at least major district places. I have spoken to their Customer Service person as well as the Service Center person in my city & they seem to be quite keen to solve your queries. They doesn’t seem to be just declare dates after dates for release of their pre-booked products.
        I will wait for GPad G2 or the rumored Canvas HD Pro.
        Thanks a lot again……..

        • Gaurav Singh says

          Hi Deepak,

          Yes very true v have to give full marks to Gionee.They r taking India seriously and their devices r available in retail stores as well with support.

    Hey Gogi, is taking pre order for JIAYU G4 advanced Quadcore 2GB Ram and website says shipping in 1-2 week. Is it ok ? should i pre order or wait for official launch in India ? Kindly help. Here is the link offering JIYAU G4 –

  5. Tech Addict says

    Gionee Dream D1 could be an excellent product (available @15000 or above) if it could be rooted. Gionee has intentionally blocked rooting on it. So other Gionee products will also be root-proof. If you don’t intend to try unofficial updates (ROMs),etc. then you can consider Gionee products.

    • Abhijeet says

      Rooting is now available. Even CWM would be up soon. Thanks to a developer on XDA.

  6. Tech Addict says

    Want to buy black colour Micromax Canvas HD. It is available on for about Rs. 14400 with 2-3 days delivery time. I checked half an hour before.

  7. mohit says

    Is the internal storage 16 GB or 4 GB? Most of the sites mention it as 4 GB. Even in its youtube video its 4 GB. Kindly clarify.

  8. digvijay says

      thanks for share ur viewpoint on dream d1, download mx player , u will have good volume of speakers….

    • jaap says

      Speaker volume of all phones on stupid Google Android JB is low. It is a big shame. It has nothing to do with the hardware of the phone. A simple phone from 10 years ago is much better.

    dear gogi,
    please review karbonn titanium s5,i am waiting for your review,my i need a quad core under 13k and 5 inch of screen,i thought of xolo q800, micromax a116 but a116 seems to have some lags poor battery back up an no gyroscope and the apps cant be installed in external memory card,and i am disappointed in xolo’s 4.5 inch screen,so my next option is titanium s5 but you have not done its review so please make it fast it would be easy for us.since the karbonn has snapdraon processor i am doubting its gaming performance , i want to play high end games like nova3,gta3….ect.but s1 seems to have a good bench mark and i think s5 will have an improved performance over the former and it will give us a good gaming experience.i am interested in umi x2 also but i am tired of waiting and disappointed in nenamark2 jus 28 fps,zen ultrafone 701 is also my option but no confirmation in its performance.

    Please suggest me one of the following, xolo q800,micromax a116,umi x2,zen ultrafone 701hd,wammy passion,wammy titan 2,karbonn titanium s5.

      Hi Narendhren,

      I would prefer you to go with Gionee Dream D1..i purchased this phone 10 days ago for Rs. 15K and its really awesome !
      No lags, awesome display quality and very fast !
      Let me know if you want to know any details about this phone !!

      • Akash says

        The phone is very good but phone cannot be rooted so for advanced user phone is not the best phone since many apps requires root phones to be installed

      • Viren Pandya says

        Hello Mr. Manish Kapoor,
        I want know about your experience with gionee dream d1 in context with its wifi operation. I think this is not with dual band as like galaxy grand. Moreover in every review some lag has been found during getting back to home screen. Can it be overcome by any way? Thanks in advance.

      • Shailendra Singh says

        Dear Manish, Where did you purchase this from (City & Dealer) and as it is told by many that this lags a lot in the stoc UI, High end games are not working on this, please let us know your comments.

      • r r shah says

        yes it can overcome by using nova,apex or golauncher…..@manish kappor…..@narendhren share more about ur experience of dream d1

      • Manish Kapoor says

        Hi Viren/Shailendra,
        I bought dream d1 via website…and yes i agree there were bit lags in the stock UI, however installing launchers like APEX, NOVA or GO can resolve this problem. I am using Nova launcher and it works absolutely fine..
        The Wifi is as good as any other phone..i am able to use wifi in other rooms without any might see less signals however still is performs well..
        As far as games are concerned, I am not facing any challenges playing Temple Run 1 & 2, Subway Surfer, Crime City, Frontline Commando I am pretty happy with its overall performance..
        I have not used any other very heavy game but if can let me know any specific..i will try installing it and give you the feedback if possible for me !!
        I hope this helps and let me know if you have any other questions :)
        I have read a lot of reviews via this its a good feeling to help others now !!

    • Nilesh Mhatre says

      Hi Naren,

      Go for Wammy Passion Y HD.

      Its truly the good mobile. Great Screen, Great battery Back up, Great Looks In fact in the White Version, you can even remove the ugly WICKED LEAK Logo only with the help of your nail of your finger.

      Once you remove it, the phone start looking really good. Nobody can make out which company it is.

      The only issue with WAMMY PASSION is, the Speaker Sound is TAD LOW :(. Tried to use VOLUME+ for volume boosting but it asks for ROOT permission which I didnt go for.

      Rest the phone is great, GO FOR IT !!!!!
