It seems as if Indian market is quite potential in terms of the smartphones from abroad. Chinese manufacturer G’Five recently unveiled its five unique smartphones in India based on Android and price starting at merely Rs. 7,000. These smartphones have been directed towards the economical and finance-friendly Android users in India. The common feature of all these smartphones is its pre-equipped company G-cloud facility. This gives a free space of around 5.5 GB to the users. These smartphones have been reviewed here:
G’Five A79 is the entry-level phone that comes at Rs. 6,999. It boasts a range of features such as 320X480 pixel resolution display screen of 4 inches. It also comes equipped with a 5 MP camera. G’Five A79 sails on the 832 MHz processor that runs on Android 2.3 OS or Gingerbread. More or less, it is said to compete with the already existing Karbonn A7 mobile. It however has a larger screen than Karbonn (3.5 inches in Karbonn).
The upper model of G’Five A79 is G’Five A86. It comes with better resolution, better camera and better processor too. The 480×800 pixels 4 inch touch-screen mobile also boasts 8 MP camera. It also has the front facing camera with VGA resolution. G’Five A86 also comes with a 1GHz processor. This one comes with a price tag of Rs. 7,999.
This touch-screen mobile comes with 480×800 pixels resolution screen with 4.3 inches. The smartphone is powered by the 1GHz processor, 4GB internal storage facility as well as 512 MB RAM. This mobile functions on Android 4.0 OS. It is priced at Rs. 8,899 and competes with Karbonn A9 and Spice Mi-425.
Boasting a screen of 5.3 inch, G’Five G95 can proudly be called a tablet as well! But what disappoints us is the screen resolution which is only 480×800 pixels, like its other categories. It is powered by Android 4.0 OS and remaining features remain same as G’Five I88+. This one however claims itself as the cheapest android cell phone in the Indian markets, priced at Rs. 9, 499.
As its name says it all, G’Five G3D is the handset supporting the 3D images without any glasses! It comes with 4.3 inch screen with better resolution, i.e., 960×540 pixels. It also has the HDMI port. It is priced at Rs. 11,799.
Even though G’Five features seem to be impressive overall, but its lack of brand-loyalty and presence of other better smartphones such as Micromax, Spice as well as Karbonn makes it less popular. It will only be interesting to see how Indians respond to these Chinese G’Five smartphones. Nevertheless, these smartphones can be quite good for the certain sections, particularly youngsters looking for cheap Android smartphones. The ‘G’ Cloud specialty of these Chinese Smartphones will only be interesting to see and check. It is also quite appealing how Indian markets have been quiet potential for the foreign smartphone makers who create the buzz with their smartphone series in the Indian markets!
