very good phone...large display...powerful colors...i`ve had a note 3 and the camera is better on allview...the internal 5 mpx camera make the difference with any other phone...the octa-core processor run very well...with the 4.4.2 software i don`t see any lag or any errors...i think for it`s price it`s the best you can get! serious...show me another phone with that specificattions cheaper then 300 euro? :P
Beck, 27 Jun 2014Blu Vivo IV is 299$. Not 467$ like Gionee, or Allview Soul x2really?? in Romania x2 soul cost aprox 300 euro :D
If you search on Wikipedia, the 4G network capable of 300MB/s download rate. This is more than you get on a fiberlink cable, that has a maximum of 100Mbps (12.5 MB/s). The network operator is not capable of offering you that much. The 4G stuff is more a marketing thing, that will be useful later on.
Additionally, my X1 Soul is capable of HSPA+ which is pretty much the same with 4G. I am able to download with 10MB/s (80Mbps) on mobile data. Anyway, most mobile providers are not fully capable of maximum speeds for either standards.
Good performance for this phone but the updates have bugs and doesn't bring good new features. I still rather buy an Lg,Sony or Iphone or even an Lenovo.
do ur research people ... Gionee has 2 rebrands: BLU in the USA(Miami) and Allview in Europe (Romania, Brasov) ... IT IS THE SAME DEVICE !!! YES the prices differ because of taxes, publicity and services
It's a Gionee rebrand :)
Si eu credeam la fel.
Anonymous, 14 Sep 2014The phone is made in Romania, in Brasov........ You are misinformed.
My opinion is that all these phones like this one are not originals. Only software for customizing is developed by romanian, polish, hungarian or other no matter what company. Phones are made in China and they are bought by these newly established companies. This is what i call a very profitable business.
Mickey_s, 12 Jun 2014They're actually have the same hardware configuration. Only the Software is different. I would... moreit's not identical to Gionee Elife 5.5 - X2 Soul doesn't have Gorilla Glass 3 and it's slightly lighter.
REM, 10 Sep 2014It's really fabricate in Romania?nope, it's a rebranding of Chinese products by Gionee.
after kit kat update and instaling nova launcher,performance is much better ...antutu went from 27000 to 31000, and it is noticeable in overall usage. i hated this phone the firsy days i got it... it sort of grew on me in a week or so.also the tons of compliments i got for the design helped a lot .
