The Chinese mobile manufacturer Gionee recently launched its new mobile in India, the Gionee X1 available via offline retailers; may be available in online markets in near future.

Gionee is offering up to 10GB additional data per month for up to 6 successive recharges for Airtel users and will get two Patym cash back voucher codes entitling them to Rs. 250 cash back on a minimum purchase of Rs. 350 on Paytm Mall.

Now let’s talk if the phone is worth Rs.8,999.Firstly check the phones under Rs. 10K .

Starting from Redmi 4A, it beats the Gionee X1 in every department, if you don’t consider the selfie flash. Not only Redmi 4A but the Moto C Plus is also a clear and better competitor than the Gionee X1.

Gionee’s previous mobile release Gionee A1 was received well by Indian consumers. I don’t think Gionee X1 will nowhere to meet it. Also, the phone’s price is not so attractive or offering great features at that price as quoted by the company’s director. If you’d ask me about this phone, I’ll say don’t buy this.
