You're right about MediaTek though, their chipsets under-perform and run hot. I'll stick with SD, or heck even the Atom in my Zenfone over MediaTek any day.
Gionee S6 Pro is now available in Nepal at Rs.34999 ($329)
Gionee is suffering from HTC syndrome...i.e. of making their phones too pricey. They will be out of the competition soon. Their phones are priced at least 50% more than the common estimate of the market. They use Mediatek SOC and charge premium from the customers. People are not fools anymore.
bf1983, 01 Oct 2016Fair point ! They do have limited service centers. But if you are comparing with Samsung they ... morePrice of V3 max has just dropped. This will drop too after a few months. Regarding service, Gionee too has a very good service network. I owned Gionee S5.5 once and my personal experience with the service center was good.
The same phone branded as QMobile noir z14 is selling for 250$ in Pakistan. It has been here for almost a month now.
Akalp, 30 Sep 2016Main issue with Oneplus is lack of service centers and you can only get it online.Fair point ! They do have limited service centers. But if you are comparing with Samsung they have the A7 for 26k which has a better screen, better brand name and FAR better service than this Chinese brand Gionee.
Heck the Vivo V3 Max has a much better chipset and costs a good 5k less.
LG superfan, 30 Sep 2016still better than thisyes better but not for people who cannot get it off line. Service is a big issue too. Those 28K are a waste if you dont have a service center nearby.

Among Chinese brands I find vivo is most appealing vivo v3 max is solid midranger performs all tasks smoothly
3ngin33r, 30 Sep 2016They cant even match their Chinese competitiontheir chinese competition like oppo and vivo are selling these same chipsets for the same price and are doing well actually for example(oppo r9) and they are doing better than bargain brands like leeco and xiaomi. only in india people seem to be price sensitive but it seems like the rest of the world doesnt care
get the facts right
finger print sensor is in home button not rear mounted.
Gionee are truly deluded from pricing this lower mid-range device this high when there are better and cheaper options, I wonder the type of fools that will buy this gionee S6 pro, the blind and foolish ones perhaps, because they should be able to see better phones around them, well if Gionee is not careful with their ridiculous pricing they will go extinct in the China phone market soon.
When the One Plus 3 has a better screen, much better processor, FAR FAR better GPU, more ram and better software support I can't imagine who will want to buy this phone from another Chinese company like Gionee ?
