The 8MP snapper is rather disappointing, especially for me - since I am harder on cameras than most. Indoors, the images it takes are too soft and details are rather mushy. In perfect lighting, things are better - but not a whole lot. HD Video capture is quite a lot better, but not that impressive.

The Gionee Dream D1 - Surprisingly Amazing


The Gionee has all connectivity features you should expect from a modern-day smartphone, let's not forget that it's a du­al-SIM phone and primary SIM will have 3G goodness. The loud speaker was another pleasant surprise but the audio quality on earphones wasn't.

First impressions

Another smartphone cheaper than the compe­tition from China? Well, before you dismiss it, you really should take a deeper look. Because the Gionee Dream D1 is unlike any other Chi­nese smartphone that can be easily dismissed just by hearing its name. For starters, it's got a stunning 4.65" Super AMOLED Plus HD display protected with Corning Gorilla Glass 2. Plus it's running on a quad-core processor with 1GB of RAM on Android's latest OS - Jelly Bean (v4.1). So, what did we think of it? Read on.

As soon as you hold the Dream D1, you notice how lightweight it is - and immediately start paying closer attention to the overall aesthetics of it. The back panel has a nice textured feel to it and there is a metal rim encasing the front and back - which feels quite premium in hand. Android's Jelly Bean OS has been my personal favorite ever since it's been launched so I'm quite glad to see how smoothly things run, though Gionee has put some kind of skin on top of the OS, though no official name has been given to it. The icons looks a bit too colorful for my taste, but that can easily be changed by using any of the multitude of launchers available in the Play Store, but the original skin does feel slightly laggy. The Super AMOLED Plus display is the star though, even though colors tend to look a bit saturated, everything is bright, vivid - and crisp too, thanks to the 720p resolution. The customization of the OS extends to the file explorer and Music Player too - everything is visually appealing and likeable. Pushing the Dream D1 on the benchmarks proved that it was no slouch, but got some mixed results on the graphics capabilities. Barring Dead Trigger (where the gun turned to some funky colors after a while), every other game ran smoothly and the experience was enjoyable. Surprisingly the back panel didn't heat up as much either, another brownie point for the D1! Speaking of which, the 2,100 mAh battery lasts throughout the day with moderate to heavy use - but if you keep using Wi-Fi or 3G, it does drain up a little quicker, but nothing out of the ordinary. Multimedia consumption was brilliant with DTS being on-board and videos on Super AMOLED is always enjoyable!

With only a few other competitors crop­ping up in the same price range with similar specs, the Gionee Dream D1 truly deserves more brownies than most peo­ple will be willing to give it. It's got great specs and features, excellent multime­dia and graphic rendering capabilities, and a smooth Android experience that you'd normally get from phones that cost twice as much. If only the camera was a bit better, it was an easy recommend for everyone.
