Gionee M7 Power Camera  Review

Rear Camera : 13MP, auto focus, LED flash
Front Camera : 8MP, Portrait mode
Video Recording : FHD resolution

The rear as well as the front camera does a very good job. This handset comes with single camera and the camera quality is excellent. You can get really good shots in low light provided you use the manual mode. Handset can record FHD videos, quality is very good. The selfie also turned out pretty good.

When using front camera there is portrait mode that does a decent job, not perfect but good enough.

Camera Rating : 4.1 out of 5
