  1. Gogi, any idea why they fail to provide kitkat for E7? Is the problem with its customized camera sensor ?

  2. Update doesn’t work every time. My xperia p perform better after update,but my galaxy note 10.1 ( N8000 ) performance become worst after kitkat update. ……

  3. Hey Gogi, does gionee e7 supports USB internet feature?
    If yes then let me know the process please.

  4. An update doesn’t necessarily mean a better performance. I have updated my LG g pro e988 to kitkat,and since it has been a real pain in the a**.
    A better calibrated Os for particular hardware is more desired, which makes most use of available resources without being an intolerable burden on hardware.

  5. Oh my God this is awesome……..I have been using this phone since last year and now they have given a worthy upgrade……. Gionee rockzz

  6. the official guide for Kitkat update is available here.

    After update battery life has increased a bit.
    But overall the performance is reduced.
    If you turn off the power saving, you can increase the performance at the cost of reduced battery backup.

    1. Then you buy new mobile, you should thanks gionee for giving after sales update otherwise not binding on them. Nice gionee…..
