And to begin with…

If this first characteristic is not blocking for you, let’s go to the tests to find out if it is adapted to your uses.

What does mobility look like?
Your smartphone must be able to accompany you at all times.Mobility for surfing the internet, even on holiday.
In terms of size, this K3 Pro 128 GB is about average.Its 6.53 -inch screen is a good compromise.
Writing text messages, looking at photos or surfing social networks, everything is clear on this screen.Gionee seems to have designed a device capable of withstanding the hardships you might put it through.The device is equipped with Wifi.This means that the connection will be easier during your internet browsing. This phone is equipped with a GPS chip.Your travels will be facilitated, even abroad.Unless you’re in the middle of the desert.
It is sometimes convenient to have several phones in one. And this model can handle multiple Sims.This means that it is possible to have several active subscriptions in the device.This will even be possible with competing operators.This feature will be useful for travellers among you, who will be able to integrate a prepaid SIM card of the country they are in, without having to remove the main card.
Detail that is missing on this K3 Pro 128 GB is the absence of reinforced glass.No protection against scratches or shocks that can occur during the lifetime of all smartphones.A possible solution at a lower cost is the addition of a transparent tempered glass film, without altering the screen’s tactile reactivity.
In terms of autonomy, this phone is in the average with a 4000 mAH battery, comparable to competing models.Perfect for a day between calls and games.
On the question of loading, Gionee has done in the economy, that is to say without the fast charge.This is very useful when the smartphone battery is empty and you’re in a hurry.
Interesting for the videos?
Smartphones have become the new televisions.It’s become a handy tool.The same goes for listening to music.Because of the power of smartphones and their connectivity, you can watch whatever you want.However, the first smartphone that comes along is not necessarily going to fit.
We would have liked the K3 Pro 128 GB to have been more powerful on the multimedia side.It is one of the worst in this area.An 6.53 -inch screen with overly vivid colors.And its screen resolution is low.At the limit, it will be suitable for listening to music.
The on-board technology at the display level is the LCD IPS.The result is less light scattering, resulting in a wider viewing angle and deeper tones.
For the audio part, Gionee wanted to do well.You have an input for the 3.5mm plug of your headphones.
Using its Bluetooth functionality, you can pair your phone with all the devices in your home (speakers, TV…).The result is very pleasant to the ear.
And finally, for the sound, we were surprised not to find the stereo.
Is it suitable for games?
Games are performance consuming.The same applies to the ever-increasing number of applications that reduce battery capacity.For smooth and responsive rendering on 3D video games, it is necessary to combine a good processor with a good graphics processor.Simply put, the higher these features are, the better your gaming experience will be.
In the end, we found that the power of this K3 Pro 128 GB is below its competitors.The Mediatek MT6771 Helio P60 (12 nm) processor is weak and the graphics processing unit of a lower quality than we would have liked.The colors are medium and the images are not fluid.
When it comes to storage memory, 32 GB is the minimum on most smartphones today.And this smartphone is the perfect answer to the need with 128 GB.Knowing that some users need more space, Gionee has provided a free space for an extension.
The autonomy is correct for normal use.This model is identical to what you will find in the competition.With a power of 4000 mAH, it will be enough to charge the day before to be able to hold the day.
It will be necessary to limit the applications installed on this smartphone.The components do not allow for a quality display.That’s gonna make it harder to read.Even if it remains legible, the clarity of the image and the display are below the competition.
And to finish on the application part, we note that the payment function via telephone (the NFC), is not available here.
Analysis of Audio and Video functions
The quality of smartphones allows you to take pictures as well as many cameras.The millions of pixels of the sensors make it possible to make high quality photos.But this characteristic is not everything.Being able to share photos taken with one click is also important.Generally speaking, Gionee has developed a recognized know-how for smartphones.
The features of the camera lens are perfectly connected to the Android system part.So you have 3 objectives present on this smartphone.
