You can buy yourself the most expensive Samsung or Apple phone and buy a 20,000 mAh powerbank and will cost last than this overpriced phone. Considering how fucking thick this phone is, they at least should've added a 3.5mm headphone jack. I'm going to burst in tears if Blu rebrands this and sells it for 400 squat.
Congrats Gionee you gone made the iphone look like its a good deal
Anonymous, 27 Dec 2016wait. so... this must be made out of some luxurious materials or something, right? like those ... moreIf you read the source link it says the phone covered in premium metal, sapphire glass and leather. I hope those materials are really the best of its kind.
Also the main camera seems to have S7-like specs, with addition of secondary lens. Mix + match Samsung's and Apple's tech? Idk but let's hope it's also true.
And last with the OS I hope Gionee prioritize this phone to upgrade to Nougat. Oh and software optimization will complete the list, too.
If those items are ticked entirely right, maybe the price will be justified enough.
Absolutely ridiculous! Is that pricing a joke or what? If this phone was launched at April 1st, I would have thought that it was an April fool joke. I wonder what they are drinking over there at the Gionee labs in China, this ridiculous pricing shows delusion and ego within the ranks of Gionee, they think that they will just slap an upper mid-range chip, a high internal storage, a huge 6gb ram and a large 7000mah battery and then the Gionee M2017 deserves the pricing of a small car.
NO NAME, 27 Dec 2016 With A ridiculous Price Of RMB 6,999 around $1,010 Or RMB 16,999 (around $2,446) ? Only For ... more6999 yuan translates to 69999 inr which is cheaper than iPhone 7 plus and pixel here but still costly for what it's worth.
Only Defend Of The Ancient DOTA Players Will Able To Relate this Opinion Of Mine :D
FIRST BLOOD *7,000mAh battery capacity
DOUBLE KILL *two 3,500mAh batteries inside.
KILLINGSPREE (TRIPLEKILL) *Snapdragon 653 SoC
DOMINATING (MULTIKILL) *display of 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution. RAM is 6GB
UNSTOPPABLE (ULTRAKILL) *Measuring 155.2 x 77.6 x 10.78mm and weighing in at 238g, the M2017 runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow with Amigo 3.5 UI on top
GODLIKE RRRAAAMPPPAAGEE !
RMB 6,999 (around $1,010). The top model carries a whopping RMB 16,999 (around $2,446) price tag
Very Very Very Insane Device !
wait. so... this must be made out of some luxurious materials or something, right? like those Vertu phones. because otherwise there is nothing special here, safe for the second battery. the SoC isn't even the best available at this price point. and an additional internal battery isn't worth a $600 premium. and what's the difference between the $1000 model and the $2400 variant? surely more than the storage? not even Apple charges $1400 for their storage options.
some crucial information must be missing here.
on another note... not sure how people feel about 2 batteries stuffed into one phablet after the Note 7 saga
Who will purchase that overpriced low-spec phone...?
Maybe some kind of a dung.
What the.?! Insane Battery. Insane Storage Capacity. Godlike with the Price. :D
With A ridiculous Price Of RMB 6,999 around $1,010 Or RMB 16,999 (around $2,446) ? Only For A Phone ??
I think The Only One Who Can Buy This Device Is People Who Can Buy An Island Or A Planet ! What The H#$@%@ No One Can Able To Afford This Thing Unless You Are The President Of A Country Look For the Screenshots I Think it Was The Prime Minister Or A Widely Known Business Man Of the China Holding That Device !
Price is quite expensive but there is more...this design is...bweeeeek!
I really wanna know who actually buys these kinda phones lol
