If in guarantee (which I suppose it is) then please visit the service centre to clear your doubts or help rectify the same. Kindly be more specific and elucidate the cons you have mentioned for a better understanding of the same. As per my knowledge, your cons may not apply to everybody because it does not matter for me because all my requirements for my usage are being provided by Gionee M4 and I have no complaints. Some people may buy it only for Battery backup, calls, what's up, Internet browsing or listening to music etc and that is well provided by Gionee M4. Please don't give wrong information(which you think is your requirement) and deprive others of buying. Sorry for being so harsh. Please think before penning.
Santosh Goswami, 06 Nov 2015What is the quality of camera in Gionee m4.I fully agree with Rakesh. The Quality of Camera front and rear are superb. The video recording is also superb. It can compete with many other Rs.20,000/- plus smartphones and put them to shame. Only big con that I found is - you can't transfer/move Apps to External SD Card.
Rajesh, 07 Nov 2015m4 have T720 GPU not MALI-400 pls replace words into specification Please check on the official Gionee India Website to clarify your doubts.
Hemant, 07 Nov 2015I Am user of this phone above 3 monthz. mobile is hanging when open wtsp battery is very gud. ... moreKindly clarify as to what you mean by saying that FLIPCOVER is weak. Is it physically weak/brittle or is it weak in terms of not functioning well as it is required to do so. Please ensure that all updates given by the company are downloaded to solve your hanging problem. If still it does not help, then please do a factory reset.
kuiver@live, 08 Nov 2015I have been using it for 3 months now.it a worst Android phones.don't go for it.Sorry to say that you have got a very bad piece. Kindly share the problems here because someone or the other may help to solve same. Either return it back through the proper channels you purchased it from or get it serviced. Please don't give a negative remark for the entire lot of Gionee M4 smartphones just because you got a bad piece. Try a factory RESET to see whether it helps resolve your problems. I've got a fantastic piece which is working very well in all departments and I've been using it for exactly 31 days and have no complaints.

Vicky, 03 Nov 2015Well Guys i am using this phone for last 3 Months and i would like to Share my honest Experie... moreI bought m4 marathon in July 2015,till now I haven't faced any problems except few hangs,that to because of faulty operation not phones problem.battery very good.performance good.good for average gaming.slight water contact tolerant,but its not waterprof or dustproof,so prevent unnecessary exposure to weather.supports 4G in India,excellent camera in its class,experienced user will feel its good quality image capture(front and back).stereo speakers not provided,use headphones for music and video playback.please use the stock version of Android lollypop,as upgrading might pose some problems( cause phones processor might not be suitable). All above statements are my personal experience from using the phone for last 3 months only......
I had recently updated my Gionee M4 with latest updates that came over the air... But to my surprise the update is not handling well and the phone starts rebooting after every call. My friends tell me that the software was not installed properly. Let me tell you this is a great phone but please be carefull while updating to the new updates
Gionee M4 very best for smartphone lovers.best in power ,performance in all fields.and getting ota updates too. great phone.
I am using this mobile for the last one mont. This mobile is better than any other mobile . battery backup is awesome . display also very nice . there is slight heating pblm. Camera clarity is super both front and back.
pravin, 02 Nov 2015Dear all Friends I request you to please kindly sugessted gionee marathon M4 opiopinions next ... moreGo for Gionee M4 without any doubt but keep your fingers crossed for getting a good piece. All the best.
Vicky, 03 Nov 2015Well Guys i am using this phone for last 3 Months and i would like to Share my honest Experie... moreAll five fingers are not the same. I beg to differ with you on your comments as I feel you got a bad piece or maybe I'm one of those extra lucky persons in this world to have got an extraordinary piece which is from out of this world. For the price I've paid viz., Rs.11960/- I think I got a fantastic smartphone. This is in follow up to my previously owned Gionee marathon M2. Presently I'm also owning Lenovo K3 Note. Both the cameras are very good. Only close ups (documents etc) from rear camera are not very clear but can be made clear on tinkering with the camera settings.video recording is excellent. This is in comparison to my previously owned phones from Asus, Gionee, xiaom,Nokia and Lenovo. The super Amoled screen is awesome. Call quality is very good so also is the music quality on speaker (quite loud and clear) and provided earphones is good. The provided Flip cover is awesome and it's use can keep the power button from being pressed all the time. Networking on 2g, 3G and wifi are excellent. I've not tried 4g as yet. If one takes care of ones possession, there is no need for the phone to be dropped or even water entering inside the phone because it is well protected like all other smartphones. (As long as we keep in mind that this is not a waterproof phone). The battery backup is extraordinary. I'm not a gamer but did try one game for the sake of trying and didn't experience any problems. Not experienced any heating or lagging problems upto now it being almost a month since I purchased this phone from eBay. Awaiting your comments. Thanks.
Well Guys i am using this phone for last 3 Months and i would like to Share my honest Experience.
Most of us prefer this phone mainly for its battery backup, this phone will justify the Trust, a limited user like me, the Phone had 3Day performance without charging in 3G Network.
Excellent Processor and RAM there is not many things to compromise other than the list below.
1) Cannot expect the camera quality for 8MP Camera, the video quality is also average we cannot expect the perfection.
2)Poor speakers, you cannot expect to hear phone Music while traveling or in crowd.
The Ultimate disadvantage:
Same like other phones the Battery is Non detachable and Casing is not made to protect the phone even for water splash. when a water enter the phone in any means. its as good as we have to dispose the phone. When the phone start to reboot we don't have any control of rebooting the phone or switch off.
if you are very conscious on handling phone then this is good choice. i killed my phone in 90 days by taking it in rain.
