Now those who have already bought gionee phones a tip for you:-
Go to your settings about phone and tap on the build number 7 times
Now you will be a developer go back and tap on developer options
Scroll down to display and there you will see 3 animation bars select each of them and put animation off
That's it now reboot your device and you can see the difference
First of all I want to say never buy this phone it will hang very often and will not let you to even modify your system(root permission) only the cameras are good and as people are saying it heats a lot yeah I can feel it too when its in my pocket.In my case one day it was so hanging that I cannot even slide through the screen so I decided to change its Custom Rom and my phone hardbricked bcoz the system did not accepted the ROM I flashed fortunately I had saved an ota update update on my PC so I flashed some of its contents and the official stock contents and got my system back now I can root my phone but it still hangs and overheats actually the problem is with its ram and the internal the developer of this phone is so retarded he made internal 16 GB and ram only 1gb which is the cause of its hanging.
NEVER BUY THIS PHONE

After 3 hrs of charging only getting 3 percent. sometimes the restart method also not works to charge the phone..My phone usb port, usb cord, adapter is also not damaged.
